Do Not Be A Slave to Free Thought

“We may say broadly that free thought is the best of all safeguards against freedom. Managed in a modern style the emancipation of the slave’s mind is the best way of preventing the emancipation of the slave. Teach him to worry about whether he wants to be free, and he will not free himself.”

G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy, New York: John Lane Company – London: John Lane: The Bodley Head, MCMXIV, PG. 198

Do not be a slave to free thought, or you’ll succumb to being managed.

“The damned are, in one sense, successful, rebels to the end; the doors of hell are locked on the inside….They enjoy forever the horrible freedom they have demanded and are therefore self-enslaved.”
