Greatest Evil

Against the Night, Charles Colson, p. 46

As C.S. Lewis wrote,

"The greatest evil is not done in those sordid &ls;dens of crime' that Dickens loved to pain. It is conceived and moved, seconded, carried, and minuted in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices."
