The Evil of the 'cause'

"'You mean you don't want to fight the occupation of your country?' She would have liked to tell them that behind Communism, Fascism, behind all occupations and invasions lurks a more basic, pervasive evil and that the image of evil was a parade of people marching by with raised fists ad shouting identical syllables in unison."
Milan Kundera

Whether we chant for revolution or for the continuation of a regime or ideology- nothing encapsulates the destruction of the soul more than that collective madness they so often label a 'cause'

- and so we conquer our fear
