G.K. Chesterton on How Materialism Puts People in a Bind

"When materialism leads men to complete fatalism (as it generally does), it is quite idle to pretend that it is in any sense a liberating force. It is absurd to say you are especially advancing freedom when you use free thought to destroy free will. . . . You may use the language of liberty, if you like, about materialistic teaching, but it is obvious that this is just as inapplicable to it as a whole as the same language when applied to a man locked up in a madhouse." G.K. Chesterton #MemorialDay
