There are some people, who are proud and wise and practical, who say that it is not in human nature to be generous, that men will always fight one another, that the strong will conquer the weak, and that there can be no real moral foundation for man′s civilization. We cannot deny the facts of their assertion that the strong have power in the human world, but I refuse to accept this as a revelation of truth…
We should know that truth, any truth that man acquires, is for everyone.
Money and property belong to individuals, to each of you, but you must never exploit truth for your personal aggrandizement; that would be selling God’s blessing for a profit. However, science is also truth; it have its place in the healing of the sick, and in giving more food and leisure for life. When it helps the strong crush the weak, and rob those who are asleep, it is using truth for impious ends. Those who are thus sacrilegious will suffer and be punished, for their own weapons will be turned against them.
