Minatory, Repressive

“Either the person confesses and he is proved guilty from his own confession, or he does not confess and is equally guilty on the evidence of witnesses. If a person confesses the whole of what he is accused of, he is unquestionably guilty of the whole; but if he confesses only a part, he ought still to be regarded as guilty of the whole since what he has confessed proves him to be capable of guilt as to the other points of the accusation….”

                                                                                            –Book of the Dead

“When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in a confederacy against him.”

                                                                                             –Jonathan Swift
