G. K. Chesterton
"... the very fitness of the new creeds [whether they are religious, political or "life-style" creeds] makes them unfit; their very acceptability make them inacceptable. Thus they all profess to be progressive because the peculiar boast of their peculiar period was progress; they claim to be democratic because our political system still rather pathetically claims to be democratic. ... These people merely take the modern mood, with much in it that is amiable and much that is anarchical and must that is merely dull and obvious, and then require any creed to be cut down to fit that mood."
