"Horror of humanity"


“I MIGHT inform those humanitarians who have a nightmare of new and needless babies (for some humanitarians have that sort of horror of humanity) that if the recent decline in the birth-rate were continued for a certain time, it might end in there being no babies at all; which would console them very much.”
 
~G.K. Chesterton: Illustrated London News, May 24, 1930.
