  Yes, it is surprising how much you can only learn about people after you
  poke their eyes in, stab them the back, rape their children, kill their
  cat, burn down their homes, etc.  You could almost mistake people for
  normal until you take a _deep_ look into their character this way.

  It is much easier with the very shallow: They are exactly the same all
  the way down, and they _really_ believe everyone else is, too, and that
  you actully learn something useful about other people by teasing them.
  There are few so shallow people.  Most of them cannot even _understand_
  what it means to feel passionately about anything, least of all flakey
  stuff like freedom, rule of law, standards, trust, or, indeed, agreement,
  which they think is the same as truce.
