Good and evil

“It is almost a joke now in the Western world, in the 20th century, to use words like 'good and 'evil'.  They have become almost old fashioned concepts, but they are very real and genuine concepts.These are concepts from a sphere which is higher than us. And instead of getting involved in base,  petty, short-sighted political calculations and games. We have to recognize that the concentration of  world Evil and the tremendous force of hatred is there and it's flowing from there throughout the  world. And we have to stand up against it and not hasten to give to it, give to it, give to it, every-thing that it wants to swallow.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

H/t to the late Philip Jones .
