The Trouble with the American Chesterton Society

Yes, there is trouble, serious trouble. Trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with C and that stands for Chesterton.

Chesterton is the trouble. He's so amazing, he's so thoughtful, he's such a complete thinker, that we can't but help and think that more people ought to read him. And that's the trouble. We have so many great ideas about how to make Chesterton more well known that we can't keep up with ourselves. We need more money. Why? We'd like to publish things. Books about Chesterton. Talks about Chesterton. Poetry of Chesterton's. Essays about Chesterton. Chesterton's work and how it relates to us and our society today. Video games about Chesterton. Etc.

We are not lacking in ideas. We are working on AMBER, to get all of Chesterton's work in electronic format, searchable, so that anyone who is writing, talking or working on Chestertonian stuff could easily search for what Chesterton had to say about sex, love, rock 'n roll, truth, Christianity or Neitzsche.

We are working on other stuff too. Stuff that requires time and money. Neither of which anyone ever has. What we do have, though, is love. A love for the big guy, Uncle Chesterton.

So if you'd like to help us out of trouble, consider the many ways in which you can help support the Chesterton society. You can buy books through our website. You can become a member, a deal that includes a subscription to our magazine Gilbert. You can simply donate. Or, if you have time, contact us and let us know what you might be able to do to help the world to know Chesterton.

Thanks. That's all I'll trouble you about today.


  1. I bought more books. And a friend in Sandusky, Ohio has begun circulating "The Globalist Weed/Join the American Chesterton Society" at the Ford/Visteon plant where he is a union rep.


  2. Excellent, thanks Tom. We appreciate it more than we can say. If you were in our presence we might hug and kiss you. As long as you wouldn't sue for that.
