What does it matter if a lying community is ruined? Let it be razed to the ground, I say! All those who live by lies should be wiped out like vermin. It’ll end in the whole country being infected. You’ll bring such things to such a pass that the whole country will deserve to be destroyed. And if ever it should come to that, then with all my heart I say: Let it all be destroyed—let all the people perish!
Henrik Ibsen, A Public Enemy
