A Bit of Chesterton the Prophet

 Ran across this VERY pertinent quote the other night.

"The point is that the human intellect is free to destroy itself. ....One set of thinkers can prevent further thinking by teaching the next generation that there is no validity in any human thought.  It is idle to talk always about the alternative of reason and faith.  Reason is of itself a matter of faith.  It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all."

GKC foresaw 'radical deconstructionism' AND the fake 'divide' between faith and reason.

We know where those errors got us.  Will we remedy this?
