VER­BA­TIM

The Woolwich Observer - - COMMENT -

“What a pas­sive so­ci­ety. It em­braces ac­tion, en principe, and prag­ma­tism ver­sus ‘the­ory.’ But when an en­emy ac­tu­ally strikes – hur­ri­canes or mass mur­der­ers – it goes limp and turns to the Lord. They pray be­cause they don’t know any­thing else to do or be­lieve any­thing can be done. It’s as if there are only ef­fects, not causes, so ac­tion is point­less, there­fore let us pray.”
