Faux humanity


“They hate kings, they hate priests, they hate soldiers, they hate sailors.


They distrust men of science, they denounce the middle classes, they despair of working men, but they adore humanity.


Only they always speak of humanity as if it were a curious foreign nation.


They are dividing themselves more and more from men to exalt the strange race of mankind.


They are ceasing to be human in the effort to be humane.”

G. K. Chesterton.
