Kierkegaard's Comments On 19th Century Churchgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
"If the conditions at a certain time are such that almost everyone knows privately that the whole thing is wrong, is untrue, while no one will say so officially; when the tactic used by the leaders is: Let us simply hold on, behave as though nothing had happened, answer every attack with silence, because we ourselves know only too well that everytning is rotten, that we are playing false: then in that case the conditions are eo ipso condemned, and they will crash. Just as one says that death has marked a man, so we recognize the symptoms which unquestionably demand to be attacked. It is a battle against lies." --Soren Kierkegaard
