Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 142 of the late Tom Bethell’s superb 1998 book, The Noblest Triumph:

It is a great irony of communism that those who did not believe in God believed that godlike knowledge could be concentrated at a central point. It was believed that government could be omnipotent and omniscient. And in order to justify the idea that all lives should be determined by a single plan, the concomitant tendency of communist regimes was to deify the leader – whether Lenin, Stalin, Mao or Kim Il-sung.
