Marcus aurelius: poverty is the mother of crime. Old prejudice: the poor are a dangerous lot who will stoop to criminality if given the opportunity. Anatole france: the law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread: both of them cannot do the same things. It targets and governs a specific group of people. Distinction between: formal side of the law. How the law reads: actual impact/purpose. Laws regulating the use of space signify function of space and citizenship: ex; the cracks in the washroom stalls - to control and to watch behaviours. The crack aren"t very effective as you can"t see unless you go right up to the crack, but it feels like you"re being watched anyway. Physical aspect: ex; benches - designed so homeless people can"t sleep on them.
