The modernest attacks morality…

[The modernist] goes first to a political meeting where he complains that savages are treated as if they were beasts. Then he takes his hat and umbrella and goes on to a scientific meeting where he proves that they practically are beasts…. In his book on politics he attacks men for trampling on morality, and in his book on ethics he attacks morality for trampling on men.

G. K. Chesterton, quoted in Tactics by Greg Koukl, kindle location 2026
