"That is a lesson that has been largely forgotten in the present global crisis occasioned by the spread of COVID-19. Individually and collectively, we seem to have put what Aristotle called “mere life” above the “good life” which is the crown of human temporal existence. By all means, we must protect the weak, the vulnerable, those who are at risk of death as the ravages of the pandemic do their work. That is an imperative for all decent people. But shutting down civilised existence hardly reflects the exigencies of Christian charity or Churchillian fortitude."
