The party is all-embracing. It rules our lives in all their breadth and depth… There will be no license, no free space, in which the individual belongs to himself. This is Socialism… Let them then own land or factories as much as they please. The decisive factor is that the State, through the party, is supreme over them, regardless whether they are owners or workers.
As quoted in The Voice of Destruction, Hermann Rauschning, New York: NY, Putnam, 1940, p. 191.
