quoth the madman

"In ancient drama, the one who pays is always the one who is right – Prometheus, Oedipus, Orestes, etc. But that’s not important. Anyway they all end in Hades, right or wrong. There is neither reward nor punishment. This explains, to our eyes clouded over by centuries of Christian perversion, the gratuitous nature of those dramas – and the pathos of such plays"
— Albert Camus - Notebooks 1942-1951
