Defining the Darkness

"As the contemporary world and its newspapers present the spectacle of a gigantic psychiatric clinic, every attentive observer has ample opportunity to see these formulations being enacted before his eyes.  A principle of cardinal importance in studying these phenomena is the one already stressed by analytical psychology: that the unconscious of one person is projected upon another person, so that the first accuses the second of what he overlooks in himself."

C.G. Jung
"The Role of the Unconscious" (1918)
Collected Works Vol. 10: Civilization in Transition
p. 25
