Former totalitarian expresses the sentiment undoubtedly shared by his compatriots

You know, I know something about totalitarianism. I have been a totalitarian ruler. And I have to admit, it was a great job while it lasted.

~Eduard Shevardnadze, former foreign minister of the USSR, as quoted in a conversation with David Rothkopf in "Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making"
