This book disagrees that any person has full rights irrespective of what they do in and to our society. Fixing words on paper cannot fix meaning and so implications. Such ideas are simply that and relevant to existing conditions. Fixed words dangerously allow some to exercise a form of escapism while for others they advance their ambition through blaming and causing harm.
