Hitchcock and the trivialization of evil

In Bloch’s novel, Norman reads occultist books, which his mother disapproves of, such as Ouspensky or the father of modern Satanism, Aleister Crowley. His murders are explained in the book by his having been under the effects of alcohol, which isn’t given as much importance in the film. Furthermore, the psychologist’s final conclusions are contradicted by Hitchcock, who avoids all reductionism when considering the mystery of evil. For him, there is no doubt: “All men are potential murderers”.

If you're going to quote the first edition, now you can even present the ipsissima verba impressed by the finger of the Lord himself -

Um, is that 'tinned' or 'sinned'?

It's an important difference.

I trust you're not being serious, but if you are, then compare the word "justified" in the next verse to see the difference between a /t/ and the long /s/.

Here's a verse with "tinne" in it - Numbers 31:22

The two words compared -

nice - now there's a good book that could come in handy during some fire & brimstone sermons!
