“It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged.”
(from his 1921 American tour to the Cleveland Press)
A related quote applies to our "unhanged" politicians (No, I didn't say unhinged, but that is probably true as well.) who, if truth be known, are our own aristocracy.
“The real argument against aristocracy is that it always means the rule of the ignorant. For the most dangerous of all forms of ignorance is the ignorance of work.”So now we know why Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, and other career politicians are such ditzes! They've never worked a day in their lives (unlike mothers who are as industrious as honey bees working their hives).
Read Chesterton. He really is the Apostle of Common Sense.
