We Don’t Call It

You see, Willem, he admits he doesn’t know the law, and at the same time claims he’s innocent. (Franz Kafka (1925), The Trial)

Gerald: Well? What do you think, Kyle?
Kyle: Dad? Don’t you think our last new house is big enough?
Gerald: Well, this one is BIGGER!
Kyle: Tomorrow’s trial, Everyone vs. Everyone, is gonna make things a lot worse! We have to stop it!
Gerald: Kyle, let me explain something to you. You see Kyle, we live in a liberal, democratic society; and democrats make laws; and these laws tell us what we can and can’t say; and what we can and can’t do.
Kyle: Isn’t that fascism?
Gerald: No, because we don’t call it fascism. Do you understand?
Kyle: Do you?
Gerald: Just look at how big this house is, Kyle. Just look at it.
