[Written shortly after the Second World War, Campbell says] " ... The community today is the planet, not the bounded nation ... The national idea, with the flag as totem ... the patriots whose ubiquitous photographs, draped with flags, serve as official icons - are precisely the local threshold guardians ... whom it is the first problem of the hero to surpass. (p. 359) ... a transmutation of the whole social order is necessary, so that through every detail and act of secular life the vitalizing image of the universal god-man who is actually immanent ... in all of us may be somehow made known to consciousness. (p. 360) ... "LIve,", Nietzsche says, "as though the day were here." It is not society that is to guide and save the creative hero, but precisely the reverse. ... everyone of us shares the supreme ordeal ... (p. 362).
