Science & Honesty

It is no good telling us that science will give us
a world of honest men. It would need a world
of honest men for science to be run honestly.

– G. K. Chesterton

Reason, Reality & Faith

mind 21

Reason itself is a matter of faith.
It is an act of faith to assert that
our thoughts have any relation
to reality at all.

When The State Becomes God

GK Chesterton 21

The truth is that it is only by believing in God that we can ever criticize the Government. Once abolish the God, and the Government becomes the God. The fact is written all across human history; but it is written more plainly across that recent history of Russia.

— G. K. Chesterton
