Hannah Arendt ‘Il dominio totale si raggiunge quando la persona umana è sottoposta alla disintegrazione dalla sua personalità juridica.’
In « The Origins of Totalitarianism », Hannah Arendt writes that the “the first step on the road to total domination is to kill the juridical person in man“.The assertion describes an eternal and absolute truth to be found in contemporary, complex and globalized legal systems. Everything began, however, at the beginning of Modern Age, and yet immemorial, on the misty Olympus of rights. Indeed, in the realm of the subjective rights, many of them urged to belong to the upper caste, that of the fundamental rights, and among which, some claimed, due to a kind of natural precedence, to be entitled to the leading position, whether that it was hierarchical or simply logical. The elite believes to be constituted of the non-derogable or inalienable rights listed in the European Convention on Human Rights or the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
