Unfortunately, Bonhoeffer’s warnings were way too little way too late, with a massive hole in the center of philosophical resistance. But from his lessons we can learn the secret to prevailing against the tide of peer-driven error. Rational sovereign individuality: fully armed, fully trained, fully confident men and women with the fortitude to stand committed to their own rational judgment. Against such people, the Harold Campings of the world remain the circus side show they deserve to be. Against such people, the Adolf Hitlers of the world remain nameless painters, scrawling out their diatribes in deserved obscurity.
Dear spiritual Tyranny reader, the people who are far, far more dangerous, are those who appeal to a transcendent ‘reality’, morally condemn self-appointment, undermine critical inquiry, and insist: “We are right, because we are US.”
