High concentration of truth is way too dangerous and therefore it is diluted for safety of clients... Bon appetit, darling!

The quotation in context from : On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life: Part II of Thoughts ...

......Only so far as the seeker after the truth has the unconditional will to be just is there something great in the striving for truth which is everywhere glorified so thoughtlessly: while before the duller eye quite a number of the most diverse drives such a curiosity, flight from boredom, envy, vanity , play instinct - drives which have nothing at all to do with truth - merge with that striving for truth which has its roots in justice. The world may appear full of those who "serve truth"; and yet the virtue of justice is found so rarely, more rarely yet is it recognized and almost always mortally hated: Whereas the host of sham virtues has at all times paraded in honour and pomp. Few serve truth in truth because only few have the pure will to be just, and of those again very few have the strength to be just. It s not at all sufficient to have only the will to justice and the most terrible suffering have come upon man precisely from a drive to justice which which lacks power of judgment which is why the general welfare would require no more than to strew the seed of the power of judgment as widely as possible so that the fanatic remain distinct from judgement, the blind desire to be a judge distinct from the conscious power of being allowed to judge.

Few serve truth in truth because only few have the pure will to be just, and of those again very few have the strength to be just.

“Who can say, ‘I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?” (Proverbs 20:9, NKJV).
No one who has, or will ever, walk on HOLY GOD’S Beautiful Earth, can claim creating themselves Pure with Truth, and Strength to be Just. Only HOLY GOD’S Will Be Done, not our will. We do not have Truth, Purity, and Strength to be Just without the Will of HOLY GOD’S Authority gifting us. However, Noah pleased GOD, and “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God” (Genesis 6:8-9, NKJV).

“Few serve truth in truth,” as HOLY GOD has assigned to HIS Elect. Everyone was born with a sin nature because of Adam’s fall in the Garden of Eden. GOD’S Free-Will gives us freedom to choose good or evil. Truth is Good, evil is bad choices.

The Truth: SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST IS OUR FREE GIFT OF SALVATION when we choose to Believe in JESUS, Confession of sins, Repent, and we shall be Saved.

Pure is what we shall be when we transcend from earth to HOLY GOD’S HEAVENLY KINGDOM.

Just: the root word for Justification, to declare Righteous; acquitted of confessed sins.

Strength: to be gained through Fellowship with CHRIST, Studying HOLY GOD’S Truth in HOLY SCRIPTURE, our Spiritual Food and Spiritual Water for Eternal Life. “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” (James 3:17-18, NKJV).

Grace and Peace to you! I Love Everyone!

AMEN? AMEN!!!

I am more interested in humanity, philosophy and social justice. Chomsky is much greater than merely being a linguist.

...and of those again who have the strength, even fewer have the discernment required to be just. And of those again, very few have the sense of humor.

An acute sense of justice is a curse unless tempered by a good sense of humour and moderated by very small expectations. Yes…. It is a curse.
