"They don't recognize that humanity, developing by a historical, living process, will become at last a normal society. But they believe that a social system that has come out of some mathematical brain is going to organize all humanity all at once, and make it just and sinless, in an instant, quicker than any living process. That's why they so instinctively dislike history, nothing but ugliness and stupidity in it, and they explain it all as stupidity. That's why they all so dislike the living process of life."
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
