Chesterton on the Health Care Non-Debate

Apropos the now-invisible health care debate (which, thanks to all the backroom dealing from which even most Democrats are excluded, has virtually dropped off the radar) and the woefully inadequate Republican response:
“The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.”
-G. K. Chesterton (April, 1924)
