Karl Barth Quote – “History is the display of the supposed advantages…”

History is the display of the supposed advantages of power and intelligence which some men possess over others, of the struggle for existence hypocritically described by ideologists as the struggle for justice and freedom of the ebb and flow of old and new forms of human righteousness, each vying with the rest in solemnity and triviality… Yet one drop of eternity is of greater weight than a vast ocean of finite things.

Karl Barth (1886 – 1968)
