“If everyone lives roughly the same lies about the same things, there there is no one to call them lies; they jointly establish their own sanity and call themselves normal.”
—Ernest Becker

Quoted by Alan Hirsch in Untamed: reactivating a missional form of discipleship, ch. 4, “Kultcha-Schmultcha.”
