Only the individual can change, not the mass - "I am talking to the individual because only the individual can change, not the mass; only you can transform yourself, and so the individual matters infinitely. I know it is the fashion to talk about groups, the mass, the race, as though the individual had no importance at all, but in any creative action it is the individual who matters. Any true action, any important decision, the search for freedom, the inquiry after truth, can only come from the individual who ....is trying to understand ...a creative entity, a free person, unconditioned, capable of pursuing truth for itself and not for a result." - JK
