Before the days of anesthetic how similar would have been the scenes of surgery and torment. The satirist will say he bears no malice to the man he wounds cutting away the corruption to leave the patient healed, yet the patient behind the duct tape gag screams and struggles, and the satirist whistles as he works. Ever it has been so. Malice, lust, will to power, sadism from these too art is made.
