Organized Loneliness

"Nevertheless, organized loneliness is considerably more dangerous than the unorganized impotence of all those who are ruled by the tyrannical and arbitrary will of a single man. its danger is that it threatens to ravage the world as we know it-a world which everywhere seems to have come to an end-before a new beginning rising from this end has had time to assert itself."

Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism.. p.478
