The Pope on Communism --
"There was a sense that this evil was in some way necessary for the world and for mankind. It can happen, in fact, that in certain particular human situations, evil is revealed as somehow useful inasmuch as it creates opportunities for good."

The quote comes from this article on the pope's forthcoming book, Memory and Identity: Conversation Between Milleniums.

I wonder how this philosophical view of history would apply to the so-called "war on terror."
