Sample text

People are not so completely depraved as really to desire evil, but they are blinded and do not really know what they are doing. Every. thing depends upon luring a decision from them. A child may be rebellious against his father in small things for a long time, but if once its father can drive it to a real revolt it is far nearer salvation. That is why the rebellion of the masses is victorious if one gets out of their way, so that they never notice what they are doing. The masses have no real opinions and so if they happen to put a man to death they are eo ipso brought to a standstill, are called to their senses and are made to think.

If it is the task of the spiritual community in "high" religion to call the individual out of his mass condition, then the effect of the state church is to level the individual and reduce him to a mass creature incapable of decision. Thus it was established by the state as a kind of eternal principle that every child is naturally born a Christian. As the state obligated itself to furnish eternal bliss for all Christians, so, to make the whole complete, it also took it upon itself to produce Christians.

Etc. But, and again in principle, there are conceivably some truths about anything historical; and a conviction to this effect probably guides every scholar's endeavors. All of us proceed upon the notion that all the conceivable truths would, if finally gathered, agree with one another and be free of contrariety and contradiction. The goal (evasive as it is in fact) is always a kind of historical understanding which would never have to be redone because it is adequate to the facts that really are.
