The world without God would be a "rale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing . . ." The very fabric of an atheistic society has never been defined better. Life would be a "tale", a strange dream, an abstract discourse of an exasperated imagination, "told by an idiot", and , therefore, without unity. Life would be all splintered into fragments, with no true order, with no vision beyond the immediate instant, "full of sound and fury", that is to say, where the single method of relationship is violence, the illusion of possession.

-- Monsignor Luigi Giussani, The Religious Sense
