Quote of the Day

Out of this apparently innocent idea comes the disease that will certainly end our species (and, in my view, damn our souls) if it is not crushed; the fatal superstition that man can create values; that a community can choose its ideology as men choose their clothes. Everyone is indignant when he hears the German define justice as that which is to the interest of the Third Reich. But it is not always remembered that this indignation is perfectly groundless if we ourselves regard morality as a subjective sentiment to be altered at will…unless we return to the crude and nursery-like belief in objective truth, we perish.”

– C.S. Lewis
