"Social sanity"

“WE shall never return to social sanity till we begin at the beginning. We must start where all history starts, with a man and a woman, and a child, and with the province of liberty and property which these need for their full humanity. As it is, we begin where history ends…. We judge everything by the particular muddle of the moment.”

~G.K. Chesterton: Illustrated London News, May 3, 1919.
