Chesterton and Freedom by Dr. Dermot Quinn - YouTube

A conversation and staged reading with Dr. Dermot Quinn, Professor of History at Seton Hall University, a member of the Board of Advisors of the G. K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture, and Associate Editor of The Chesterton Review. "The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog." -- Broadcast talk, June 11, 1935. "Most modern freedom is at root fear. It is not so much that we are too bold to endure rules; it is rather that we are too timid to endure responsibilities." -- What's Wrong With the World. "The man of the true religious tradition understands two things: liberty and obedience. The first means knowing what you really want. The second means knowing what you really trust." -- "G.K.'s Weekly," August 18, 1928
