“A morality that proceeds from the community of an all, that proceeds from we, is dangerous, perhaps more dangerous than anything else, because committing to an all is to commit to an abstraction, something existing in language or the world of ideas, but not in reality, where people exist only as separate individuals.”

— Karl Ove Knausgaard, The End (trans. by Martin Aitken and Don Bartlett)
