Malcom Muggeridge on Dietrich Bonhoeffer

[Nazi madness] was what Bonhoeffer had to face. And as he said, it was not a case just of a deluded, vainglorious Germany. A sick man was in charge of a sick nation in a sick world.

From A Third Testament, by Malcom Muggeridge.

Lest you think I'm making some analogy between Nazi Germany and the US and our current leaders: I'm not.

I'm noting that Bonhoeffer's entire world was sick. Our entire world is sick today. "Sick men in charge of sick nations" describes the UN's bribe-taking nations pretty well, as well as "Democidal" regimes like North Korea and China.

And our sick world placidly sits by.
