ChestertonInAmerica“The Americans go mad when they make laws; but they recover their reason when they disobey them.” G.K. Chesterton, What I Saw in America

The United States is collapsing under the weight of misguided freedom — the “deification of the irrational, of blood and instinct, of the beast of prey in man” (Bonhoeffer, Ethics).
