The Hearts of Men...
As we ponder what just happened and the nuttiness that is and will continue to follow, G.K. Chesterton sheds some light on the subject:
"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." - Chesterton, ILN 9/11/09
"America has a genius for the encouragement of fame." - Chesterton, The Father Brown Omnibus
