Ford points to people doing nothing at all, rather than to people doing wrong actions, as the primary cause of the persistence of evil. "Because most of us are simply unwilling to inconvenience ourselves for change," sloth and anxiety are very much contemporary problems. Religion, in the form of popular piety and individualized faith, emphasizing "saving individual souls rather than ushering in the kingdom of God," often feeds indifference, as does popular culture, with its stories of the cowboy and the entrepreneur, and public life, which interprets freedom as being "without restriction, compulsion, or obligation." The answer to such inaction, says the author, is commitment.
