Evil Passions

Suspicion is the expression of a feeling of insecurity. Suspicion is related to malice and both serve envy.

If the public circumstances are right, all these evil passions become accomplices to inquisitions and repressions.

Suspicion, always awake, ensures that nobody discovers the corpse and digs it up. That is its psychological and political function.

-- Itinerary by Octavio Paz
