The coldest lie, from the coldest of monsters

“I, the State, am the People.”

From Thus Spake Zarathustra

In full:

“Somewhere there are still peoples and herds, but not with us, my brethren; here there are states….A state is called the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies also; and this lie creepeth from its mouth: `I the state, am the people.’…Destroyers are they who lay snares for many, and call it the state….”
