Quote of the Week: Ernst Jünger, “The Forest Passage”


Ernst Jünger (b. 1895 d. 1998)

“Fundamentally, freedom and tyranny cannot be considered in isolation, although we observe them succeeding each other in time. It can clearly be said that tyranny suppresses and eliminates freedom – but, on the other hand, tyranny is only possible where freedom has been domesticated and has evaporated into vacuous concepts.”

▪Ernst Jünger, The Forest Passage (Telos Press Publishing, 2013 [1951]) extract from pages 23 through to 24.
