Quote by Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man Und
The community is infinitely more brutalised by the habitual employment of punishment than it is by the occasional occurrence of crime.
This quote suggests that the regular use of punishment in society has a greater negative impact on the community than the occasional incidents of crime itself. It implies that a society that relies heavily on punishment creates an environment where individuals are constantly subjected to harsh treatment, fostering fear, trauma, and further brutality. The quote advocates for a focus on prevention and addressing root causes of crime rather than solely relying on punishment, which can perpetuate a cycle of violence and harm within a community.
Totalitarianism is never content to rule by external means, namely, through the state and a machinery of violence; thanks to its peculiar ideology and the role assigned to it in this apparatus of coercion, totalitarianism has discovered a means of dominating and terrorizing human beings from within.
A Nicklaus Design golf course is done by the guys in my company that I work with, that have been trained in my vision, and they do what they think I might do. They might come in the office and ask me questions and I'd certainly answer their questions, but I'm not involved in the site visits or anything else.
Politicians -- power itself -- are abject because they merely embody the profound contempt people have for their own lives. One should be grateful to the politicians for accepting the abstractness of power, and ridding others of its burden. This inevitably kills them but they get their revenge by passing onto others the corpse of power.
