Powerless in My Return

We are safely back from the 'Burg, but the power is out.

Still reading Chesterton, in the heart of WWI now, commenting on the long history of German belief from Frederick the Great until hisw time. A great deal of the philosophy of Nazism which we regard as having sprung surprisingly on the world in the 30's, with faint support in its history, Chesterton anticipates in his discussion of German attitudes up until 1916. Much to think about.
