As I write these words, news outlets are buzzing over the beheading of the American journalist Steven Sotloff. The second most-watched report is probably about the leaked photos of Hollywood actresses posing in the buff. Both stories are clear examples of human depravity run amok. Therein lies the paradox of our age: the human mind is daily bombarded with the terrifying and the trivial, the incomprehensible and the insipid. We aren’t the first generation to be overwhelmed by disdainful news and, should the Lord tarry, we won’t be the last.
