English term or phrase: saintly
It is the raw compassion that is at the bedrock of the human condition. We might think of it as the first principle of the heart. It is not saintly to experience such a sense of compassion: it is sociopathic not to experience it.
Some commentators in the West have attempted to ground the case for helping
refugees in arguments which extend to particular aspects of post-Christian
ethics. They urge us to be more morally demanding of ourselves: to be saintly
The saintly can go beyond what we propose, and we will cheer them along; but our book is for people who privately might recognize that their moral standards are typical rather than exceptional.
