Potestas Clavium

Here is a delicious quotation from Lev Shestov in Potestas Clavium:

“Scratch” any European, even if he be a positivist or a materialist, and you will quickly discover a medieval Catholic who holds frantically to his exclusive and inalienable right to open for himself and his neighbor the gates of the kingdom of heaven. The materialists and atheists claim this right quite as much as do the faithful sheep of the great herd of St. Peter’s followers.

Keep this quotation in mind when you visit various web sites. It is remarkably true.
