From the Archives: The Self and its Sources Part 12

Democracy as the myth of the death of kings (Charles I and Louis XVI).
Plato: let no one disturb the small stone that separates friendship and enmity.
Prestige: those illusions that kept us from slaughtering one another.
The Caiaphas principle: it is better that one should die than the whole nation be destroyed.
