Don't get me wrong - I don't expect anyone who actively opposes God to fall to his or her knees and publicly cry out in repentance, but at the same time I imagined I would catch a glimpse of remorse every once in a while; that I would pick up the faint scent of compunction here and there; that I would detect nervous whispers of regret beneath the droning. At the very least I anticipated mild expressions of doubt seeping through now and again. But I have yet to sense anything of the kind, and I doubt I will see much of it in the future.
Look, the evil we face now is unabashedly unapologetic. And why not? Relentless and unmerciful, it simply does not care about what anyone thinks because it has come to the perfectly correct conclusion that barely anyone thinks at all.
