“The moral attitudes of the dominant and privileged groups are characterised by universal self-deception and hypocrisy. … Since inequalities of privilege are greater than could possibly be defended rationally, the intelligence of privileged groups is usually applied to the task of inventing specious proofs for the theory that universal values spring from, and that general interests are served by, the special privileges which they hold.”
- Reinold Niebuhr, Moral Man and Immoral Society, p. 117
