“The root of the matter lies in the whiff of popular justice that masks everything and transforms the commentators, the bloggers, the citizens, into so many judges sworn in on the great tribunal of Opinion — some weighing the crime, others the punishment,[and [many taking] an evil pleasure in replaying over and over the details of this sordid affair in order then to throw the first stone. This lynching is a disturbance of the public order more serious than Roman Polanski remaining free. This tenacity on the part of the gossips, and this desire to see the head of an artist on a pike, are the very essence of immorality.” — French poet and philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy in a 10.5 Huffington Post-ing.
