Vigilance

by Mark Chmiel

In all these struggles [inside the Empire] the greatest danger for us lies in becoming tired and giving up, letting ourselves be diverted or corrupted, falling into dependence on drugs, alcohol, or prosperity, becoming depoliticized because we submit ourselves to the idol of oppression, who whispers to us with a soft voice: “Nothing can be done about it.”

— Dorothee Sölle, German theologian and activist
