"The disintegration of rational society"

“THE old order has been reversed. The people, instead of surveying the world from their doorsteps, survey their mortgaged doorsteps through a vague and hazy mental screen compounded by international misunderstanding and national mistrust. . . .

"The disintegration of rational society started in the drift from the hearth and the family; the solution must be the drift back.”

~G.K. Chesterton: G.K.’s Weekly, March 30, 1933.

  1. A true prophet, Chesterton.

    In 2016, not only has the drift from the hearth and family become a deluge away from both, but the very definition of family now includes every kind of perverse arrangement the indoctrinated mind and heartened heart can invent.
