All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche (October 15, 1844 - August 25, 1900)
The ideal of brotherhood of man, the building of the Just City, is one that cannot be discarded without lifelong feelings of disappointment and loss. But, if we are to live in the real world, discard it we must. Its very nobility makes the results of its breakdown doubly horrifying, and it breaks down, as it always will, not by some external agency but because it cannot work.
~ Kingsley Amis (April 16, 1922 - October 22, 1995)
