  1. Interesting comment #26 on the Belmont “Cliff notes” version:
    “To some degree, it’s a matter of how you see your own role, your own power. If you see yourself as omnipotent, you can forgive a lot. And, you can take the luxury of trying to punish very finely, with infinite precision, just the perpetrators and not their supporters. If you see your power as limited, you do not want to see it eroded, and perhaps paradoxically you need to exercise it earlier and more bluntly.”
