The worse the coming future, the more it should motivate its opponents

“The high probability of a monstrous evil should not induce paralysis in those who see it coming. It should lead not to the end of action, but to the beginning. It is a paradox, but still a truth: The worse the coming future, the more it should motivate its opponents—the more it should strengthen their passion to defend themselves and their values against the approaching onslaught…” ~ Leonard Peikoff
