The right move …

… C.S. Lewis' Turn From Argument to Poetry - Washington Free Beacon. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Lewis' stories are not mere propaganda, nor are they dogmatic diatribes against the newest philosophical fads he encountered throughout his life. By showing how characters informed by the new ethics of moral relativism met challenges in the worlds he created, Lewis showed how those ethical frameworks broke down and proved insufficient, even as he avoided using philosophical or ethical language to prove it. … Through his stories, Lewis illustrates the conditions for the best human life.
