“For a totalitarian regime,” wrote Arendt, the ideal citizen isn’t a chest-thumping Nazi, but rather the man for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (meaning the reality of the experience) and the distinction between true and false (meaning the standard way of thinking) doesn’t exist any more.”

Read this in Autodafe, which sounds like a very worthwhile online magazine.

(btw the new blogger edit screen is very cool)
