The Face of Another

...a face easily removed. A world without family, friends, or enemies. There'd be no criminals, hence crime itself would disappear. Unbounded freedom, hence no yearning for it. No such thing as home, hence no dreams of escaping from it. Loneliness and friendship would bleed into one another. Trust among people, now so richly prized, would become obsolete. Suspicion and betrayal would no longer be possible...
- from the diary of Newt Gin-Ginch, 14 November 1995
