Setting Man Free

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy.  The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe.  Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

-- Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982), Russian-born American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter, The Soul of an Individualist, For the New Intellectual, p 84
