Prescience in a letter received this morning from the Chesterton Society

"We are no longer in a world in which it is thought normal to be moderate or even necessary to be normal. Most men now are not so much rushing to extremes as merely sliding to extremes; and even reaching the most violent extremes by being almost entirely passive. . . We can no longer trust even the normal man to value and guard his own normality."

-G.K. Chesterton, America, January 4, 1936
