“The new rebel is a skeptic, and will not trust anything…[but] therefore he can never be really a revolutionary. For all denunciation implies a moral doctrine of some kind…Therefore the modern man in revolt has become practically useless for all purposes of revolt. By rebelling against everything he has lost his right to rebel against anything…There is a thought that stops thought. That is the only thought that ought to be stopped.”


-G.K. Chesterton in Orthodoxy (1908) quoted in Tim Keller’s Reason for God (2008)
