“Punishment is now unfashionable… because it creates moral distinctions among men, which, to the democratic mind, are odious. We prefer a meaningless collective guilt to a meaningful individual responsibility.” Thomas S. Szasz (Hungarian psychiatrist and Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus at State University of New York Health Science Center in Syracuse, b.1920)
“Epics typically appeal to the collective unconscious. They are brands, deeply entrenched in the mind and such is their recall that the first week’s turnout is nearly assured.” Rajeev Sharma
