On The Utopians

The utopian leader chastises the past—the past is naive, it’s irrational and vile, it’s an abomination which has bedeviled society for too long; the time has now come to demolish it by any means, including terror, if necessary, and once we are free of the past, we will begin the work for creating a new social system, a utopia based on the new set of values prescribed by the party doctrine. He is convinced that the cause of human progress stands or falls with him: the fight for truth is his fight. He will readily sacrifice his life for his utopia provided there is a large enough audience to witness him do it.
