New genre for Michael who's better known for his Scandi fiction. A nice story that got better after a bit of a hesitant start. Evidence of extensive historical research of pre-war Germany.

John Stuart Mill
“It's hardly possible to overstate the value, in the present state of human improvement, of placing human beings in contact with other persons dissimilar to themselves, and with modes of thought and action unlike those with which they are familiar. Such communication has always been... one of the primary sources of progress. ”
John Stuart Mill

John Stuart Mill
“The liberty of the individual must be thus far limited, he must not make himself a nuisance to other people.”
John Stuart Mill

Ludwig von Mises
“Once the principle is admitted that it is the duty of the government to protect the individual against his own foolishness, no serious objections can be advanced against further encroachments.”
Ludwig von Mises

“The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.”
― Friedrich von Hayek

John Stuart Mill
“A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another; and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the dominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, an aristocracy, or a majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.”
John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
