The Individual and the Institution

Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest "We invent institutions to help make the world more just, more rational. Life in society would not be possible without orphanages, schools, courts, government offices, and mental hospitals, yet no sooner do they spring into being than they start to control us, regiment us, run our lives. They encourage dependency to perpetuate themselves and are threatened by strong personalities."

~ Miloš Forman, from Turnaround: a memoir
