Steynianism 177

An unjust society, full of lies, is the joint accomplishment of its intellectual and proletarian classes, the changes desired by each as necessary for its creation proceeding hopefully forward together. In this event, traditional definitions of truth and justice must be altered, truth being redefined among the intellectuals toward the destruction of justice and justice being redefined in the proletariat toward the destruction of truth. While no political party is immune from this dynamic, certain of them approach its embodiment.”

“A state of freedom ought to mean a state in which no man can silence another. As it is, it means a state in which every man must silence himself. It ought to mean that Mr. Shaw can say a thing twenty times, and still not make me believe it. As it is, it means that Mr. Shaw must leave off saying it, because my exquisite nerves will not endure to hear somebody saying something with which I do not agree. Freedom means that we cannot oppress each other. But unless we insult each other we shall never do anything.”

Benedict XVI affirmed that believers are thus “not afraid of anything,” knowing they are “in the hands of God.” “[The believer] knows that evil is irrational and does not have the last word, and that Christ alone is the Lord of the world and life, the Incarnate Word of God, he knows that Christ loved us to the point of sacrificing himself, dying on the cross for our salvation,” he continued. “The more we grow in this intimacy with God, impregnated with love, the more easily we will defeat every kind of fear.”
