"The true State is not based upon an abstract theory of extracting man from the source of his individuality, but of building an institution which is based upon man’s nature and is designed to facilitate the spiritual aspect of that nature."

From the Article: At this point the deficiencies of democracy have become manifest. The reality of democratic life, as can be seen on a daily basis, has been rejected by most of the populace. What keeps the present structure from undergoing radical change is the myth; those visual representations meant to mobilize the masses. The lie, the propaganda, that ‘we no longer have democracy’, and ‘only if we became more open and democratic - this is what is keeping the legs from collapsing under the weight of democratic contradictions.

From the Article: The real world is therefore not something independent of us. It is a world whose stuff, so to speak, whose content, is of the nature of experience, whose structure meets, validates, and gives warrant to our active deeds, and whose whole nature is such that it can be interpreted in terms of ideas, propositions, and conscious meanings, while in turn it gives to our fragmentary ideas and to our conscious life whatever connected meaning they possess.

From the Article: There are very few instances which can be classified as being individual in nature, being isolated from society and not causing extended ripples into the larger social arena.

From the Article: Here’s the fundamental contradiction in liberal democratic social contract theory. If the State of Nature (which even amongst the proponents of the social contract, was admitted to have existed) were at any time, a reality then its essential brutishness would make it unlivable. Would a simple enforcement of contract and property rights really be adequate to address a social landscape characterized by constant anarchy and warfare?

From the Article: The tragic error of liberalism, from which arose with all its violence the phenomenon of class justice, came about by having admitted the working classes to political rights without assuring them parity of contract, that is, equality of civil right.

"The nation exists only through the State and has no meaning or purpose outside of the State. All individuals, groups, and organizations exist as part of something greater than themselves and are only able to find meaning as part of a larger whole."
