It is in poor taste to say that a man is made happy once he has been disabused of the guards of his happiness — his illusions. One disabuses a man of his illusions because one wants him to see the world as it is, or as one sees it. The last thing one has in mind is his happiness.

This is true. It is an act of cruelty, revenge or punishment to disabuse a man of his illusions.

"Sigh...."

I just don't know what to think anymore...
