Fuck Yeah Jane Austen

Eller: Folk Bygger Helt Enkelt Inte Meningar På Det Här Viset Nuförtiden.

"The real circumstances of this pathetic piece of family history were, that the Musgroves had had the ill fortune of a very troublesome, hopeless son; and the good fortune to lose him before he reached his twentieth year; that he had been sent to sea, because he was stupid and unmanageable on shore; that he had been very little cared for at any time by his family, though quite as much as he deserved; seldom heard of, and scarcely at all regretted, when the intelligence of his death abroad had worked its way to Uppercross, two years before."

Jane Austen, Persuasion

(Folk verkar också ha svårt med att vara ärliga när det gäller idioter nuförtiden. Det här med människans grymhet och fria vilja versus samhällets ansvar och mentalvårdens brister...)
