A Little Something on Chesterton’s BirthdayBy Jason Peters for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
“The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives,” said G.K. Chesterton, whom another G.K. honors in today’s Writer’s Almanac. “The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.”
Chesterton was born this day (May 29th) in London, 1874.
