Brave New World

"And that," put in the Director sententiously, "that is the secret of happiness and virtue - liking what you've got to do. 
All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny."

"The greater a man's talents, the greater his power to lead astray. It is better that one should suffer than that many should be corrupted.
Consider the matter dispassionately, Mr. Foster, and you will see that no offense is so heinous as unorthodoxy of behavior. Murder kills only the individual - and, after all, what is an individual?"

... Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
