G.K. Chesterton’s take on contraception and on global trade. Fr. Fessio, Vivian Dudro, and Joseph Pearce argue about the essays “The Surrender Upon Sex” and “Reflections on a Rotten Apple” from the Chesterton collection In Defense of Sanity.
What happens when we start seeing people as animals? We debate birth and population control—as well as Eucharistic miracles—in our discussion of G.K. Chesterton’s essays “Babies and Distributism” and “The Rout of Reason.”
Jaded policemen, the broken pharmaceutical industry, and a debate over free trade. All of this as we discuss just three essays by G.K. Chesterton: “The Efficiency of the Police,” “About Beliefs,” and “The Common Man.”
Are men more selfish than women? Are people naturally attracted to arrogance? We discuss three more essays by G.K. Chesterton: “Two Stubborn Pieces of Iron,” “The Revival of Philosophy—Why?”, and “If I Had Only One Sermon to Preach.”
