"A fanciful semblance of decency"

“THERE are many who insist on all that was dark or gross or negligent in the conditions of early barbarism, so that modern civilization may for one wild moment take on a fanciful semblance of decency. But old things have to be made very black indeed, if modern things are not to look blacker.”

~G.K. Chesterton: Generally Speaking.
