"In Such Moments..."

“Against foolishness we are defenseless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed – in such moments the foolish person even becomes critical – and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental."
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 
"Prisoner for God: Letters and Papers from Prison"
