To Freud, the best human excitement achievable may probably be present in committing barbarous deeds with the entire approval of the Over-I. To break the Jews, the gypsies, the queers, and to take action now not with an aching sense of right and wrong, yet within the identify of the daddy and place of birth, what human excitement may exceed that?
