Wisdom on Wednesdays—Compromise with the world is no longer possible

“The inordinate desire for wealth is destroying wealth.  The time is finally here when compromise with the world is no longer possible for decent men in the world.  When this point arrives, however, it is already too late.  That is the great tragedy of this evil.  And it is the only tragedy which meets with almost unanimous approval.”  (March 6, 1943)

One thought on “Wisdom on Wednesdays—Compromise with the world is no longer possible

  1. Wisdom of the ages! A voice crying in the wilderness! True 75 years ago and truer today as the social decline of American values continues apace and is reflected even at the highest levels of government.
