Favorite sentence of the day

Margalit keeps coming back to the great laboratory of wickedness that was the Second World War, which he describes as being to morality “what the supercollider is to physics: extreme moral experiences and observations emerged out of the high energy clashes”.
-- David Runciman, reviewing Avishai Margolit's On Compromises and Rotten Compromises (via 3QD).
