Response to TorchTheWitch (Reply #59)

60. Everybody has a conscience.

Some people learn to pay attention to it,
and it becomes their guide.

It is the communication link between our heart
and our brain.

It informs us, via feeling, about right and
wrong. Very young children can grasp it.

Some people learn/ are taught to ignore it.
ie, to ignore the information coming to
us from our own feeling self.
They
trust the experts and authorities more
than their own feeling selves. If they
wound someone, they have learned
not to feel it.

But a healthy creature can feel the pain
they inflict on another creature.

"Unbidden shall it call in the night"

One way or another, one day, GZ will have
to face his crimes, and feel the sorrow
fear and pain he has caused. He will have
to feel all of it, and he will have to face
his lies as well. He will have to face himself.

All of us do. I absolutely believe this is a law
of Nature.

Is not remorse the justice which is administered
by that very law which you would fain serve?

Yet you cannot lay remorse upon the innocent
nor lift it from the heart of the guilty.

Unbidden shall it call in the night, that men may
wake and gaze upon themselves.
