Thanks for the comments--

Chesterton used a lot of hyperbole (just google Chesterton hyperbole), and what he actually espoused was distributism, not socialism. He famously debated with his friend G.B. Shaw, but they maintained a great respect and liking for each other.

What has always interested me most about this quote, as a parent, is his insistence that it is not a frivolous thing to want to help your children look their best, and that it is reasonable to account for it when considering the means a family requires to manage a household.
