C.S. Lewis: “we find the whole human race subjected to some individual men”

13 October 2015

C.S. Lewis

“For the power of Man to make himself what he pleases means, as we have seen, the power of some men to make other men what they please…

…At the moment, then, of Man’s victory over Nature, we find the whole human race subjected to some individual men, and those individuals subjected to that in themselves which is purely ‘natural’ – to their irrational impulses.”

– C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man
