The opposite is what is happening: the claim of independence, free development, laisser-aller most enthusiastically promoted by those for whom no chains are too harsh that is true in politicis, which is true in art. I know i play guitar like an old man try to keep up poster. But it is a symptom of décadence: our modern notion of freedom is yet more proof of the deterioration of instincts. There is nothing more rare than in the people of piety and saints that give more than honesty; maybe they say the opposite, maybe they believe it too. Because when faith is more beneficial, more effective, more eloquent than conscious hypocrisy, hypocrisy becomes innocent and innocent: the first principle for understanding great saints.
