Consequential reading

I’ve posted 5 excerpts from Ideas Have Consequences, which may seem like quite a few considering that the book is only 187 pages. But I have fully 20 other quotations that I have typed up to save for myself and future reference that I have not posted. Truly, a quotable book. It reminded me a great deal of reading Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton. Both are books from the first half of the 20th century, both were written by men arguing against the general trend of thought in their society, and in both cases I agreed with most, though not all, of what they had to say. Very useful and instructive books. Ideas Have Consequences is a short book, as I noted, I encourage everyone to read it. Even if you don’t agree with his conclusions, you will think deeply about what you do believe and in a new way. And that’s always a good thing, neh?
