Secondly, picking up on the What's Wrong with the World discussion, I am wondering how to define "common sense".
I grew up with a mother who firmly and solidly believed in common sense; I know this because my lack of it was regularly the cause of her to say:
"Use your common sense!"in a rather exasperated way.
I wasn't sure then just exactly what she meant. I *knew* I wasn't born with this "common sense", in my case, anyway, maybe I was unusual, I had to learn it. So, to me, it couldn't have been that "common".
I really didn't feel that I learned common sense until I began to read Chesterton. But I still have trouble defining it. Any suggestions?
