Chesterton: "I despise Birth-Control"

G. K. Chesterton on Babies and Distributism

From The Well and the Shallows

Short excerpt:

They are preferring the very dregs of life to the first fountains of life. They are preferring the last, crooked, indirect, borrowed, repeated and exhausted things of our dying Capitalist civilisation, to the reality which is the only rejuvenation of all civilisation. It is they who are hugging the chains of their old slavery; it is the child who is ready for the new world."
