Czeslaw Milosz on the Vulnerability of the Twentieth-Century Mind

A quote from The Captive Mind by Milosz.

Its subject is the vulnerability of the twentieth-century mind to seduction by sociopolitical doctrines and its readiness to accept totalitarian terror for the sake of a hypothetical future. As such, the book transcends limitations of place and moment as it explores the deeper causes of today's longing for any, even the most illusory, certainty.
