The fatal superstition

C.S. Lewis 3 copyOut of this apparently innocent idea [that values are subjective] comes the disease that will certainly end our species (and, in my view, damn our souls) if it is not crushed; the fatal superstition that men can create values, that a community can choose its ‘ideology’ as men choose their clothes.

–C. S. Lewis,
The Poison of Subjectivism
