In 1938, Hillaire Belloc
described what he called "the Modern Attack," which, even seventy years ago, he clearly saw advancing upon the Church and society.
, uno de sus mayores criticos, y quiza su mejor amigo, sostuvo que esa vena epigramatica es el ingrediente basico del arte de Chesterton, su sello mas caracteristico, gracias al cual consigue dar concision a un pensamiento ya de suyo preciso, e insuflar de animo ludico un pensamiento ya de por si jugueton, basta elevar la paradoja a una forma de conocimiento, si no es que de epifania.
Unable to find an ideology with which he was comfortable, Chesterton, along with his friend and fellow writer Hillaire Belloc
, decided to invent one.
With Hillaire Belloc
, he was a "Distributist", a philosophy of which I suspect many at the Rally would not approve.
By 1924 the situation was such that Hillaire Belloc
could write scathingly of the `false method' which had `struck deep root' in contemporary history teaching, which had abandoned facts and dates in favour of a more woolly concern for making history interesting.
