My Doxy Is Orthodoxy

Sharing Options

“And thus, orthodoxy means straight belief or correct opinion. Who could be against this, one wonders. As it turns out, no one is against it — every man affirms that what he maintains is the truth. Every person in the world, all day long, every day, thinks he’s right. Even those hapless relativists and nihilists think they understand that there is no truth. And good for them, as far as they go, which isn’t very far. They don’t get out much” (The Loveliness of Orthodoxy” in Bound Only Once, p. 17)
