He Saw It Coming

G. K. Chesterton was a brilliant mind and I have read many of his works, but somehow I managed to miss the quote below:

We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green.

Since Chesterton died in 1936, this quote may be close to 100 years old!  That’s called seeing the future.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
