"...it is not solely in totalitarian states that we find authoritarian dictatorship. It is found in the church as well as in academic organizations, among the communists as well as in parliamentary governments. It is a universal tendency produced by the suppression of life; authoritarian upbringing constitutes the psychological basis in the masses of people of all nations for acceptance and establishment of dictatorship. Its basic elements are mystification of the life process, concrete helplessness of a material and social nature, fear of assuming the responsibility for determining one's own life, and therefore craving illusionary security and authority, whether actively or passively. The genuine, age-old striving for the democratization of social life is based on self-determination, on natural sociality and morality, on pleasurable work and an earthly happiness in love. It regards every illusion a danger..." -The Function of the Orgasm by Wilhelm Reich
