The Ideal of a Leisure State G. K. Chesterton

 Originally Published in the The Illustrated London News, March 21, 1925

Among the strange and rather stiff antics of the rather antiquated art of party journalism is the duty laid upon the good party man of trying to disagree with his opponents when they have the impudence to agree with him.

Social Reform versus Birth Control by G.K. Chesterton

The real history of the world is full of the queerest cases of notions that have turned clean head-over-heels and completely contradicted themselves.

Democracy and Industrialism by G. K. Chesterton

It grows plainer, every day, that those of us who cling to crumbling creeds and dogmas, and defend the dying traditions of the Dark Ages, will soon be left alone defending the most obviously decaying of all those ancient dogmas: the idea called Democracy. Continue reading
