Cardinal Sarah Confronts the Dictatorship of Noise CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 5, 2017 ... Cardinal Sarah spells out a stark ultimatum: "God or nothing, silence or noise." That link between noise and nihilism is haunting: "in killing silence, man assassinates God."

One is reminded of the suicidal protagonist of William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury , "who loved only death, loved and lived in a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/ApRlxAUMLv0/cardinal-sarah-confronts-dictatorship-noise
