People shouldn’t be ambivalent themselves just because everything else is, yet one constantly meets the view that, because we’ve been born into a world of contradictions, we must defer to it. …  If it were so, how could one expect fate to make a just cause prevail when so few people unwaveringly sacrifice themselves for a just cause? I’m reminded of an Old Testament story that tells how Moses raised his arms in prayer every hour of the day and night, asking God for victory. As soon as he let them drop, his people forfeited divine favor in battle. Do people still exist today who never tire of undividedly focusing all their thoughts and desires on a single objective?
