Collectivists Must Be Unbound By Morals

"The principal that the end justifies the means in individual ethics is regarded as the denial of all morals. In collectivist ethics it becomes necessarily the supreme rule; there is literally nothing which the consistent collectivitist must not be prepared to do if it serves "the good of the whole," because "the good of the whole" is to him the only criterion of what ought to be done..."

"There can be no limit to what its citizen must be prepared to do, no act which his conscience must prevent him from committing, if it is necessary for an end which the community has set iself or which his superiors order him to achieve."
- pp. 161-162 The Road to Serfdom by F.A. Hayek
