      Becket: It is not for me to win you round. I have only to say no to you.
      King: But you must be logical, Becket!
      Becket: No. That isn’t necessary, my liege. We must only do—absurdly—what we have been given to do—fight to the end.
      —From the play “Becket,” by Jean Anouilh

      The struggle against the monstrous radical evil that dominates our lives—an evil that is swiftly despoiling the earth and driving the human species toward extinction, stripping us of our most basic civil liberties and freedoms, waging endless war and solidifying the obscene wealth of an oligarchic elite at our expense—will be fought only with the belief that resistance, however futile, insignificant and even self-defeating it may appear, can set in motion moral and spiritual forces that radiate outward to inspire others, including those who come after us. It is, in essence, an act of faith. Nothing less than this faith will sustain us. We resist not because we will succeed, but because it is right. Resistance is the supreme act of faith.
