Sarah Moss

  • ... institutions ... are almost always in some sense utopia projects, attempts to intervene in the ways of the world. Schools, hospitals, orphanages, reformatories of all kinds, begin with ideas that an organization could make things better, redress some of the damage we do to each other. And usually, whether they succeed in the original aim or not, the institutions end up doing damage of their own, because power corrupts and visions don't work in practice and we are all hopeful but fallen beings.
