What's Wrong with the World?

Basically, the answer is that not enough people read Chesterton.

If they did, they would know what's wrong with the world.

I just got my order from the American Chesterton Society. I am reading What's Wrong with the World, and I also ordered the TV version of the Father Brown mysteries, which I will watch with my young Chesterteen in a week or so when our life allows. We are both looking forward to that.

Meanwhile, I'm just going to kick back and see just what is wrong with this 'ole world.


  1. We've been getting the Fr. Brown TV series from Netflix, They are really good. I've read the stories, but my husband is not one who reads much. We've really enjoyed them together, he is really becoming quite fond of Chesterton, enough so that he let me join the Chesterton Society.

  2. Yay Deb! Also, see The Detective with Alec Guiness. We've watched that and enjoyed it a lot.

    You can also get the Apostle of Common Sense from EWTN on Netflix, that will keep you guys busy all winter.

  3. Both are already in my queue

  4. What's Wrong with the World? there seems to be such a dearth of Common Sense lately. And G.K. Chesterton has been relatively ignored for several decades. Think there is a connection?
