The Gospel of Freedom

Injustice is not just doing bad things; it also includes failing to do good things and not acting to stop bad things. Silence speaks loudly; refraining from action is a form of choice. In both these cases, we bear responsibility, and we must atone. The gospel of freedom does not permit people to just sit on the sidelines and pretend they are immune from responsibility. Such a fiction is bad faith.

Jonathan Rieder,  Gospel of Freedom
