One More Quote from Live Not By Lies

Accepting suffering is the beginning of our liberation. Suffering can be a source of great strength. It gives us the power to resist. It is a gift from God that invites us to change. To start a revolution against oppression. But for me, the oppressor was no longer the totalitarian communist regime. It’s not even the progressive liberal state. Meeting these hidden heroes [of the Czechoslovakian underground] started a revolution against the greatest totalitarian ruler of all: myself.

Documentary filmmaker Timo Krizka, quoted in Live Not By Lies by Rod Dreher, p. 211
