Famous Quotes (10)

In the words of Polly Toynbee's father, Arnold Toynbee

"I suspect that a worldwide totalitarian movement of the communist-fascist kind may overthrow existing institutions - including local sovereignty, political democracy, economic private enterprise -

and at the eleventh hour some such worldwide totalitarian movement will stabilise human affairs by taking such drastic actions in which indespenable fundamental reforms will be intertwined with atrocious acts of injustice"

Sounds familiar but he wrote this in the 1960s
