“For the next great heresy is going to be simply an attack on morality; and especially on sexual morality.  And it is coming, not from a few Socialists surviving from the Fabian Society, but from the living exultant energy of the rich resolved to enjoy themselves at last, with neither Popery nor Puritanism nor Socialism to hold them back…The madness of tomorrow is not in Moscow, but much more in Manhattan.”

(G.K. Chesterton: “The Next Heresy,” in G.K.’s Weekly, June 19, 1926).
