Nurse Ratched

SJ's comment under Family Systems reminded me.

Nurse Ratched was a heroine, and a very decent person, made to look cruel by a guy who did not want to acknowledge that his illness was causing damage to others.

Once you understand that Ken Kesey was simply a prick who wanted to blame his pathologies on others, and interpret the events of Cuckoo's Nest through that prism, it all becomes clear.
