A big dog stands on the highway. He walks on confidently and is run over by a car. His peaceful expression shows that he is usually better looked after - a domestic animal to whom no harm is done. But do the sons of the rich bourgeois families who also suffer no harm have the same peaceful expression? They were cared for just as lovingly as the dog which is now run over.
