I have one specific sequence in my head, and what it shows and what is said doesn't get any weaker with time. An elderly tribes man from Indonesia, sitting in his tree house, tells us that it wouldn't be good to kill bad people because this would only anger the dead person's family. For some reason, this sequence has burned itself into my memory. Perhaps because of its simplicity, of its plain and simple logic that modern people, especially politicians, have lost or forgotten about a long time ago.
