P.265:
"Deep within himself, Mutz turned in shame from the discovery that he considered it a tiny increment of advantage for his class, the intellectual eating the criminal, rather than the other way round."


Mutz, is the moral intellectual. Samarin is the amoral intellectual.

Good comparison, Depputante! :cool:

How does Mutz change after meeting Anna? Does he become amoral some how? I can't remember Mr.Nice Guy that well.

I'm trying to think on this one, Depputante. He is moved to action, treason really. It's hard to call that immoral when he is going against a man like Matula though.
