In the sense of the internal connectedness of the individual with the totality, Jung had to admit that his own psychology, even in the face of its 'scientific' nature, could not wholly deny its affinity with romanticism. The Romantic element in Jung's psychology aligns it more with gnosis, alchemy and mysticism than strict science responsible only to its empirical basis in the senses or their enhancement. Jung's political psychology may appear naive when he identifies the archetypal attraction of fascism as that of the benign despot or father, of communism as that of a paradise on earth and of democracy as simply another variant of contemporary state totalitarianism. Jung is also aware of the basis of a universal faith and courage afforded by the deepening co-inherence of ego and that ground from which all consciousness derives. Jung's psychology of revelation correlates smoothly with his powerful and credible philosophy of history.
