“Opposite evils, far from balancing, aggravate each other.” – C.S. Lewis, cited by Mark Shea. The quote is from the Afterword to The Pilgrim’s Regress and continues:
‘The heresies that men leave are hated most’; widespread drunkennes is father of Prohibition and Prohibition of widespread drunkenness. Nature, outraged by one extreme, avenges herself by flying to the other.
