A Quote by Michael Jackson, 1940 on abstraction, evil, africa, sierra leone, and where most evil begins

This extravagant dwelling, as domineering as it was distant, brought home to me the intimateconnection between tyranny and abstraction, and put me in mind of John Berger's observation that "abstraction's capacity to ignore what is real is undoubtedly where most evil begins."
