I think he was born out of place, a source for streams that flowed into now. It is hard to make a judgement when he was there and I am here, not knowing if the rumors were mad whispers and history a guess. Force is okay, if you want to be forced, whips are okay if you want to be whipped and ad naseum... It is almost impossible, and extremely difficult to write an unpopular (society rules) form which bends the mind and twists the tale. I liked the movie and the sanity of a madman surrounded by farce and jealots. Hey, he'd fit right in today. Why do you ask?
