Whatever the name of the idol is – Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao – the tyrant is always a caricature of the devalued Father. Absurd militants are throwing themselves into the massacre to stay alive – that’s how crimes that are patricide multiply. The guards from the Stalinist labor camps, the Shoah’s torturers, Mao’s red guards, with the blessing of their Party, murder not only their own kings, but also their own families – they rave about new beginnings. Devils, demons want to install in our minds the idea that the killing has ceased to be the killing, and that we are free to the craziness of killing ourselves and others. This is a lesson of totalitarianism and unhappiness.
