"The Dark Lord is trying to get us to trip and fall. "

And it is easy to get men to believe easy and stupid answers, to walk about with their eyes half closed and their minds half empty,
because the natural sloth which grows like moss in every human heart is the dark side’s ally. The darkness lulls us to sleep. The Promethean task of lighting a fire, and shaping the inner ape to stand on his own two feet like a man, ah, that is harder, and is much harder to portray. It cannot appeal to man’s lower instincts, to sneering pride or prurient lust. It can only appeal to the highest. -- The Other Side of the Picture | John C. Wright's Journal
