Quote of the Day

From The Outsider by Richard Wright.

"Only jailers really believe in jails... Only men full of criminal feelings can create a criminal code. Only an enemy of Christianity, like Saint Paul, could establish Christianity. Men who fear drink want laws passed against drinking. Men who cannot manage their sexual appetites launch crusades against vice..."

Mankind's so inherently evil, we made laws, religion, and jails, simply to protect us from ourselves. - William "Ill Bill" Braunstein.
