c: The fact that Jung thought the communal ideal, by stressing the collective and social qualities of the individual, put a premium on the lowest common denominator, on mediocrity, and "on everything that settles down to vegetate in an easy, irresponsible way," (Two Essays, volume 7, p. 150, and "A Study in the Process of Individuation," volume 9, part 1, p.349), and the fact that he thought communism was impossible without dictatorship (see "Jung and Politics" by Volodymyr Walter Odanjnyk, part 4, p.52) seem to make Jung a liberal in the classical sense. Is this wrong?
