The Times

It has been shown that disjointedness was not alone a *private* matter, hidden in the individual, but that also a whole *public* world of disjointedness was extant outside the individual. The.disjointedness which the individual had overlooked as long as it was hiding in himself, now confronted him built up into a gigantic phenomenon which stood there solidly…Even then [they] failed to see the danger of this phenomenon; they did not separate themselves from it; they did not destroy it; on the contrary, they identified themselves with it, and they lived with it as if they belonged together, as if disjointedness were natural to man.
Max Picard, *Hitler in Ourselves*
