Liberty Quotes

"The unity of a nation's spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual." -- Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator

"We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society."-- Hillary Clinton (1947- ) Wife of President Bill Clinton, US Senator (NY-D) 1993

"Fascist ethics begin ... with the acknowledgment that it is not the individual who confers a meaning upon society, but it is, instead, the existence of a human society which determines the human character of the individual. According to Fascism, a true, a great spiritual life cannot take place unless the State has risen to a position of pre-eminence in the world of man. The curtailment of liberty thus becomes justified at once, and this need of rising the State to its rightful position."-- Mario Palmieri Source: "The Philosophy of Fascism" 1936
