Hegel: The State as God’s Will—Rothbard

“On Hegel’s worship of the state, Popper cites chilling and revealing passages:

The State is the Divine Idea as it exists on earthWe must therefore worship the State as the manifestation of the Divine on earthThe State is the march of God through the world … The State must be comprehended as an organism … To the complete State belongs, essentially, consciousness and thought. The State knows what it wills … The Stateexists for its own sake … The State is the actually existing, realized moral life.”
