Benutzer:Toter Alter Mann
One man may alienate the affection and love of another’s wife, but neither the seducer nor the wife is clapped into jail. A man may undermine the authority of another, violate his obligations as a friend, lie, cheat, and misrepresent, all to his own advantage and all in flagrant violation of the other’s “role” rights. [...] In the normal course of role relations, one man can destroy the life works of another and, in the process, violate the most sacred role obligations, yet he may at most be subject only to frowns, criticisms, or loss of reputation. But heaven help him should he deliberately walk off with the other man’s hat. The police apparatus would be mobilized, weapons inspected, warrants issued, jail keys turned.
