"I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.” Gandhi

At least he didn't throw out the baby with the bath water like many antichrists love to do, despite the brutal British colonization of India, in the name of God and King. What a decent and spiritually honest man he was.

Gandhi had a lot of zingers that's for sure. The movie about him is really great.

"I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing." - Neil Gaiman

If I didn't know better, I would think this person and I went to the same school!

There's no denying the socialist criticism of the 'break-up' of humanity into monads, each having one particular life principle [...] oartly matches up that of the British Tories* and of the traditional French right-wing (and Marx and Engels - who often found this reactionary criticism as "bitter, scathing and spiritual" - never hid there deep admiration for a Carlyle or a Balzac or even for some conservative right-wing British politicians of their time, notably in the days of the struggle for the Ten Hour Bill).

Jean-Claude Michéa, in Les mystère de la gauche (Climat, 2013). [personal translation]

This is why the socialists should join us, monarchists !


There is one thing that is infinitely more absurd and unpractical than burning a man for philosophy. This is the habit of saying that his philosophy does not matter, and this is done universally in the twentieth century, in the decadence of the great revolutionary period. General theories are everywhere condemned; the doctrine of the Rights of Man is dismissed with the doctrine of the Fall of Man. Atheism itself is too theological for us today. Revolution itself is too much of a system; liberty itself is too much of a restraint. We will have no generalizations. Mr Bernard Shaw has put the view in a perfect epigram: "THe golden rule is that there is no golden rule." We are more and more to discuss details in art, politics, literature. A man's opinion on tramcars matters; his opinion on Botticelli matters; his opinion on all things does not matter. He may turn over and explore a million objects, but he must not find that strange object, the universe; for if he does he will have a religion, and be lost. Everything matters - except everything.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton, on the 1st page of Heretics. For me, this is just wow.
Genius !
