Crime, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal refuses to consider the practicality of supplementing his unimpressive Fiction Corpus with a history of surreal art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I trust in the potential of implementing English as an international language for the world. I do reject the spiritless model by which English is presented for study.Pointer

Beefing up one's finesse for a language isn't like promoting a tougher piece of bronze. A language - a living tongue - is not merely an instrument that you can learn to wield with greater amounts of precision. A common tongue can not be segregated from the prevailing culture of a tribe of people of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

To make a pupil recite English is to cheat her out of its cultural context. An informed instructor has to develop a plan for introducing it; the prudent student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define words on the basis of a particular corpus, a set of written language of various size and consistency. Such a corpus can contain anything from a book about literature to a whole collection of top fiction novels. I created my "formidable" Fiction Corpus in order to form a new sort of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have drawn up a million words and I have broken them down, reformulating them - not just to teach an American language but to describe the human spirit, and to propel that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Asocial Behavior With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

In June of 2011 I arrived in Europe for what I hoped would be a great adventure; my only concrete plan, to visit Croatia. By September I had driven 6,000 miles and visited 12 different countries, all with a woman I met on the first Friday of my trip.

As an artist inspired by a young woman's struggle with self-esteem and bulimia, body acceptance had always featured prominently in my aesthetic. Having recently discovered naturism and its mantra of body acceptance in the United States, I was eager to explore the style and philosophy of naturist clubs and the beauty of naturist campsites in Europe. By a trick of fate, I found myself first in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. Margo's home.

I considered myself young and able, and being American I often convinced myself I was more than able. She didn't feel quite so young. Having grown up in Poland, what was and is still considered by many to be a poor country, she had the added burden of not only being disadvantaged but having it held against her. The difference became palpable when I realized I couldn't even properly translate into Polish the very American word, "opportunity." A chance? Sure. An occasion? Why not? An opportunity? Not in the book.

Despite the cops in Vienna. Despite the rain in Veržej. Despite getting lost in Italy. Despite parting at Soest. Despite that night in Amsterdam. Despite our fight in Lisieux. Despite the storm in the Bois de la Roche. Despite that terrible morning outside Collonges. Despite the long road to Pielenhofen, we came back safe and sound and most importantly we were happy. We had started to learn how to listen. We had left the devils of the road behind and the devils ahead seemed just a little bit smaller. We had started to open up.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Crime

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word crime in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word crime, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word crime is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Crime in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

Money laundering didn't matter that much to me. Perhaps the others thought that we were out there looking for proof that the Krupniks were criminals - incriminating evidence to give the procuracy - but they were wrong. I was after Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's head, not his freedom. Besides, it would've been rather hypocritical of us to betray the Krupniks for crimes like that; we were guilty of laundering money too. We were working with stolen cash - somebody's life savings perhaps - who knows? The truth of the matter was: we needed more. Stalin was right. We were spending too much money too quickly. We required employment, and, unlike everybody else, we had no trouble finding it. Security was in high demand. Unfortunately, only the rich could afford us. Instead of working for people like the Krupniks, I told Stalin to work for something slightly less despicable, like the State, for example, or - even better - the Church.

Verse 233 from the chapter called Security

"Release the men," said Jesus. They did it; meanwhile, Jesus said, "Listen up: you have two choices: either you join us, follow our command and fight terrorism, corruption, and every other evil plaguing our Nation, or you don't, in which case, you are mine: you are my prisoner: for the crime of treason, I might just leave you here: to be buried alive by your friends in the army. Are they your friends?"

Verse 313 from the chapter called Arms

As long as the spirit of competition wrestles with the spirit of cooperation, there will be progress. But laziness will work its crimes. The farmer who sows rye in every field will reap a good harvest - why not? He'll sell it for a good price. And everything else? Why bother? Why waste time with cabbage, potatoes, or cauliflower? Sit at home and watch TV, read books or something. Don't keep cows. Buy milk. Buy cheese. Buy eggs. Don't buy chickens when they're living; buy them when they're dead - when they've already been plucked. But you'll miss plucking them. You'll miss them someday like old friends - the way I miss Moochka: what a great cow she was.

Verse 149 from the chapter called Childhood

"You called my father a great plaintiff. Yes, amen, I say to you: he was great. He made himself great. He attacked the highest spheres, held world governments to account for their crimes. My father is responsible for this new Protocol, this new suffering that we are forced to share - and equally! We share it equally - have no doubt about it.

Verse 191 from the chapter called Security

With the lounge emptied, there was only going to be one guard on the way to Zoe's room. He was the independent variable. There was a chance that he could be in the darkened lounge, or next to the doorway to the kitchen, or, worst of all, on the stairs to the third floor. He would have to be subdued. The problem was that there were security cameras everywhere. If the lounge were darkened, as was planned, there was a good chance that my activities there would go largely unnoticed. Only my passage to Zoe's room would be cause for alarm, but not enough to make the security director inform Leonard Cohen-Krupnik, at least not until he had sent someone to investigate. With one guard strangely unavailable, he would have to send the fourth-floor guard. While that guard were busy trying to unlock or break down Zoe's door, I would already be half-way through the air-conditioning duct. Stalin, having received my call (meaning that the first guard had been subdued) would already have swung onto the balcony and, having entered the darkened salon, would be waiting behind the door to the hallway. As soon as he heard my cries from Leonard Cohen-Krupnik's office, he would rush into the hallway, take the mirror off the wall, lean it against him, and, turning around and opening the double doors as if he were Zoe returning, my attention diverted, I would immediately turn around to face him and, pointing my pistol away from Leonard Cohen-Krupnik - just in case I didn't hear the left-hand topmost drawer opening, or the hammer of a gun being cocked - Stalin would, as quickly as possible, maneuver the mirror into such a place as would allow me, first, to witness Leonard Cohen-Krupnik raising his gun, and then, to avert mortal sin and felonious crime as I, in the last second, turned back and, kneeling to the side, avoided his greedy bullet while, simultaneously, sending him to his ultimate judgment. It was a brilliant plan, but dependent on God.

Verse 1148 from the chapter called Security

Was it him? he thought. Was it his love for her that she frowned upon? Tae huffed. She couldn't possibly consider herself that unworthy. He turned to look at her. She was still sitting stoically, as if she were teaching him not to be bothered by her-as if it were a crime to love her and a punishment for her that she be still alive.

Usage of Crime in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

ALICE: Did somebody die?

FLETCHER: Don't ask.

ALICE: Yes.

FLETCHER: Even if your husband had died?

ALICE: It would.

FLETCHER: I've been wanting to confess this for so long. The island makes it hard. Who would have understood me if I had spoken? My mother? I pay my penance every time I hear her cry. She has no idea what part I played in that fire. I can't help feeling that, if I had stopped it, this family would never have had the problems it's had. Nobody died in that fire except for me. It was my own soul burning. As far as the house is concerned, restitution's been made. As for me, who would not find my weakness and ignore it? for the sake of convenience if not for shame. Who would restore my strength from the ashes?

ALICE: Let it be me. I will restore you.

FLETCHER: This is why I've been pursuing you. I knew you'd never give in to me. I saw your strength the moment you arrived: its grace: its beauty. I fell in love with it. I desired it - not for myself, but for its ability to release me from this guilt.

ALICE: Let me release you, Fletcher Christian. I will make you whole again.

FLETCHER: You will forgive me my crime?

– ACT II, lines 184-193

LUKE: Why not? You've lived in peace for so long.

FLETCHER: If by peace you mean we've committed just about every crime except murder.

ALICE: Is that true?

MS. JACKSON: My son likes to exaggerate.

FLETCHER: Consider it. In a community of such close quarters with nowhere to go, the only thing you can't ignore is a dead body. Besides that, anything goes.

MS. JACKSON: Feel free to ignore my son's imagination.

FLETCHER: The next time I'm selected for a jury, I'm not going to lie when they ask me if I've ever been accused or been the victim of a crime.

ALICE: You lied?

FLETCHER: I said no.

MS. JACKSON: When have you been the victim of a crime?

– ACT I, lines 112-121

FLETCHER: It's true.

ALICE: The poor girl was stabbed sixty-two times. Can you believe it?

LESBIAN: I'm upset the suspect is from New Zealand. That doesn't reflect well on me.

LUKE: We Aussies are supposed to be the criminals.

FLETCHER: Don't forget that Norfolk Island used to be a penal colony not just once but twice.

MS. JACKSON: Some still seem to think it is.

ALICE: There hasn't been a murder here in one hundred and fifty years. Did the last one take place when the prisons were still around?

MS. JACKSON: The last person to be murdered on Norfolk was a prisoner in the nineteenth century, shortly before the prisons were removed.

FLETCHER: Who needs prisons when you're oblivious to crime?

MS. JACKSON: It was before either the Bounty or the Pitcairner families arrived.

– ACT I, lines 83-92

FLETCHER: Good. My mother's been trying to stop her. I don't blame her for that. I feel sorry for the poor girl. Her story is a sad one. Kokomo's grandmother was raped by the Japanese while they were occupying the island of Upolu in Western Samoa. That's where Kokomo was born. Her mother was the product of that horrendous crime. Though they were the victims, both mother and child were ostracized by their tribe. Even after her mother had grown up, only the Catholic priest would take pity on them. Kokomo was the product of that pity. Eventually, she went to American Samoa to work as a prostitute for the tuna canners. One day, she came home with fifty thousand dollars and a baby. It turned out her pimp had threatened to kill her if she didn't have an abortion. Unfortunately, Kokomo made the ill-advised decision, once the baby came, to run away with the pimp's money. He ended up tracking her down. When he showed up at the mother's hut, Kokomo, in a state of pure shock, burned the money. The guy flipped out, killed her mother, slit the baby's throat, burned down the hut and forced her onto his boat. On their way to Pago Pago, they were hijacked by a bunch of pirates from Fiji. They killed the pimp and then realized he didn't have anything worthwhile except for the girl. While they stood around, trying to decide what to do, Kokomo offered them the greatest sex they would ever have in their entire lives: on the condition that they release her. They figured: why not? They could do whatever they wanted with her no matter what happened. Kokomo blew their minds. They were so satisfied, they stuck to the deal. They let her go in Fiji, where they begged her to stay and work as a prostitute. Kokomo agreed to do it, but only until she made up the fifty thousand dollars that she burned: the money that killed her mother and her newborn baby.

– ACT I, line 770

LESBIAN: I can put this one back. No one can accuse me of stealing it. I just borrowed it to show that some things in life are more important than others. Whom am I kidding? I took it to get into my landlady's panties. I'm a terrible human being. There have been worse than me - like the person who stabbed that poor girl sixty-two times: the first murderer this island has had to fear in more than one hundred and fifty years. Both suspect and victim were like me: alien to this place. Why did we come? What did we hope to find? Peace? We scared her off. Happiness? Satisfaction? Understanding? Why here? Why do we trespass on other people's land? It stands in our way - but of what? There's nothing beyond what's right in front of us at any given time. There's no way of knowing that unless you trespass. All that one can hope to do is make as little damage as possible along the way. We are all criminals, whether we like it or not. Though some of us are big and some of us small, we are all cut from the same dough. That's not the easiest thing to believe when one man robs or kills another man. What was my crime? Why am I punished? Why am I the only one who's alone? Or is it just my imagination? Are there others out there who can see me? Who know me? Who can feel my pain? If there are, I salute you. I would kiss you if I could. I can't, so I just say, 'Thank you.'

– ACT II, line 583

Usage of Crime in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

Publio Orazio (d. Mar 3, 2011), also known as Il Primogenito, a soldato for the Orazio crime family, was indicted for the murders of three policemen as well as his own sister; through the intervention of his father, Marco Orazio, a well-known mafioso, the case was eventually dismissed on all charges. Publio rose to the rank of caporegime before succumbing to cancer at an unknown age.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story without much blood or gore coming straight out of Roman mythology

"Detective Carlson," came the mocking tone. "Nice of you to join us." The captain was at the crime scene. That meant there was no doubt. There was a link with the first body. "Are you ready for class?" continued the captain. "We're drawing from life today." It was another man. Standing naked. Twisting. His arm over his head. His eyes closed. His face cherry red. It was turned against his shoulder. Looking back as if on a lover. Frozen in a wistful remembrance of ecstasy too swiftly gone by. It was a statue of dead flesh.
