"Whichever he adopts, your main task will be the same. Let him begin by treating the Patriotism or the Pacifism as a part of his religion. Then let him, under the influence of partisan spirit, come to regard it as the most important part. Then quietly and gradually nurse him on to the stage at which the religion becomes merely part of the ‘Cause,’ in which Christianity is valued chiefly because of the excellent arguments it can produce in favour of the British war effort or of pacifism." - C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
"A person certainly can hold to ethical norms, but often only so long as the dynamic of the [economic] system does not crush him. Faced with the choice between obedience to conscience and survival, he is likely to opt for survival.” - Miraslov Volf, Work in the Spirit
