Managing Evil!

The dilemmas we often have to face in life are less about making a choice between good and evil or right and wrong, than they are about attempting to identify which is the lesser evil. Indeed, managing various sorts of evil in the hope of slowly inching our way towards what is good – this is really what life is all about, most of the time.

Coming to terms with this, however, even when you are about to turn forty, is still very hard to do. Being a heretic does not make it any easier.
