Restating the Obvious

“We have reached the point in history, George Orwell said, when the first duty of intelligent people is to restate the obvious. Never has evil been so powerful, so obvious, and so destructive as in our modern world. Never has our language to describe it and our ethical will to resist it been so uncertain and so confused…Never has the responsibility of free men and women been so urgent. Never has Edmund Burke’s admonition been more timely: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” What then should we do? The choice—and the consequences—is ours and our children’s.” Os Guinness. (2004). Never Again? You Never Know. But not through me: Seven steps to facing up to the challenge of evil and suffering. The Trinity Forum, page 6.
