A Question of Liberty

For Lent, I am reading The Collected Works of G. K. Chesterton, Volume III. I came across this today, in an essay entitled "On Courage and Independence"; it is even more appropriate now than it was in 1929:

It is no longer a question of liberty from kings and captains and inquisitors. It is a question of liberty from catchwords and headlines and hypnotic repetitions and all the plutocratic platitudes imposed on us by advertisement and journalism. (p. 265)
