weil – honour




One Response to “weil – honour”

  1. Deprivation of honour attains its extreme degree with that total deprivation of respect reserved for certain categories of human beings. In France, this affects, under various forms, prostitutes, ex-convicts, police agents and the sub-proletariat composed of colonial immigrants and natives. Categories of this kind ought not to exist.

    Crime alone should place the individual who has committed it outside the social pale, and punishment should bring him back again inside it.
