...we should summon up the strength to apply to it Hegel's well-known dictum that Evil resides (also) in the innocent gaze itself which perceives Evil all around. There is thus an element of truth even in the most constricted Moral Majority vision of a depraved America dedicated to mindless pleasures, in the conservative horror at this netherworld of sexploitation and pathological violence: what they don't get is merely the Hegelian speculative identity between this netherworld and their own position of fake purity - the fact that so many fundamentalist preachers have turned out to be secret sexual perverts is more than a contingent empirical fact. The infamous Jimmy Swaggart's claim that the fact that he visited prostitutes only gave additional strength to his preaching (he knew from intimate struggle what he was preaching against), although undoubtedly hypocritical on the immediate subjective level, is none the less objectively true.

我们需要鼓起勇气,把它放到黑格尔的著名格言中:那种觉得周围一切皆为邪恶的凝视,本身(同样)是邪恶的。甚至在道德多数派(Moral Majority)认为堕落的美国人沉迷于愚蠢享乐的狭隘观念中,在保守派对性剥削、病态的暴力这些阴暗面的恐惧中,都有一个基本的真理:他们没明白这一阴暗面和他们自己假纯洁的位置,其实具有黑格尔式思辨的同一——这么多原教旨主义传道士暗地里却是性变态,可不只是偶然的经验事实。当臭名昭著的牧师吉米 · 斯瓦加特(Jimmy Swaggart)宣称,他拜访妓女此事不假,但只是为其布道补充力量(经过这私密的斗争,他就知道布道要反对什么了)。这在直接的主观层面无疑是虚伪的,但客观上却道出了真相。
