Chesterton on Fatherlessness

G.K. Chesterton on Absentee Fathers
“What is called matriarchy is simply moral anarchy, in which the mother alone remains fixed because all the fathers are fugitive and irresponsible.”

The Everlasting Man, CW II, p.186

One thought on “Chesterton on Fatherlessness

  1. Whoa! That’s a good quote… so true! I know people who are so proud of their legacy of matriarchy in their family, but the truth is that the fathers have just been almost altogether absent. So, so sad! 😦
