Christopher Hitchens is an outstanding essayist. Writing a withering piece on Roman Polanski he speaks of tragedy with this observation:
"But the types of tragedy that really deserve the name are of two main kinds, the Hegelian and the Greek. Hegel thought it was tragic when two rights came into conflict. The Greeks thought it tragic when a great man was undone by a fatal flaw."
Is the Anglican Communion in its perfect storm because it is simultaneously experiencing both kinds of tragedies? Two or more rights are certainly in conflict - the right to change doctrine and the right to maintain tradition. There is (I suggest) a fatal flaw in the Communion through having (depending how we interpret the Instruments of Unity) either no form of magisterium (teaching authority) or a form of magisterium unable to respond to the present questions.
