Further Details
Abstract "'Idealists', Heinrich Heine decided, could neither be directed 'by dread nor by selfishness'. Nothing but good intention fills and motivates them. This, in connection with cognitively uncommon assumptions on reality, that can name the source, out of which the world can be cured, prepares the ground for terrorism. It was this that turned the upright theology student Karl Ludwig Sand into a murderer in 1819. One hundred years later, with more momentous political consequences, Lenin wrote: 'For us, everything is allowed'."
