The Insanity of Mutually Assured Destruction – A Brief Reflection

October 21, 2022
How can I help you, daddy?

And once again the words of the prophet speak to this time and place… fifty-four years after his death… oh Lord, hear our prayer as we seek to step away from the insanity of mutually assured destruction. A destruction caused by horrible and divisive politics in this nation and world…

The evil that is in the modern world ought to be sufficient indication that we do not know as much as we think we do. It is a strange paradox indeed that modern man should know so much and still know practically nothing. The paradox is most strange because men in other times, who have known less than we know, have in fact known more. — Thomas Merton, The Ascent to Truth (p. 6)
