elisi: (Salt of the Earth by eyesthatslay)
This year especially (Trump being the most glaring example), it seems as if we are constantly asking ourselves what has happened to the world. Shouldn't we have learned something from the past, shouldn't we be better than this now?

Well, earlier in the summer I was reading a small book with a collection of addresses/speeches given by Dorothy Sayers, mostly at the beginning of the Second World War. This part especially struck a chord with me. For those that would like the current events to be placed within a Christian framework, I have transcribed the relevant passage, and hope it makes sense standing alone.

I have also broken it up a little, as the big block of words was rather awkward to read.

Not behind us, beneath us )
