Going With the Stream; Setting Up False Devils

Thoughts for the day:

"A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it."
G. K. Chesterton, "Everlasting Man" (1925)

"Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice."
G. K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News (ILN) September 11, 1909)

Both via The American Chesterton Society.
