“Skeptical theorists have observed that the very words truth, justice, freedom, responsibility, and many others cannot be uttered without implying the existence of One who underwrites their meaning. Contending that such a One does not exist, such theorists have insisted that we must put all such words — indeed, all words — in inverted commas. ‘Truth,’ ‘justice,’ ‘freedom,’ ‘responsibility,’ so the argument goes, are empty or, at best, only convenient fictions. They are simply verbal tools that have been used and are still being used in the interests of those in positions of power.”
