We often reproduce incestuous gestures or violence, rage. Mostly it comes out against oneself and leads to self-destruction, like me, with drugs, prostitution… But it can also come out against others. Institutions must avoid it. Above all because all the disasters that this entails have economic consequences: when you get into drugs or something else… And then, humanly, how to build a society on such a swamp?
