Europe Syndrome

This article was recommended to us, and has quite a few good Chestertonian ideas in it.

H/T/: Mike B. who says: I'm an occasional reader of the American Chesterton Society blog, I just wanted to let you know about a good (if a bit lengthy) opinion piece by Charles Murray I read on the Online Wall Street Journal. It's called Europe Syndrome and his basic premise is that when a a government takes the difficulties out of something ( say, for example, raising a family) by socializing it, they also remove any satisfaction one may receive from achieving something of worth.


  1. I finally noticed the link in the item title.

    What a wonderful article. I've sent it to several of my friends who are leaning "social democrat". It is well reasoned and hard hitting. Thanks for calling it to our attention.
