As well-meaning politicians (who are not grounded in the history of ethics, morality, and even the fundamental understanding of how their Christian faith has understood “the good”) offer up “solutions” to the various current crises, it would be well to keep in mind what G.K. Chesterton said:
[T]here is a conflict not on policies but on essential things. There is also confusion which is more dangerous; for it causes men to take action against evil without knowledge of what is good.
As true as this might have been back in the 20s and 30s, it probably is truer today. (Which is no doubt why the good folks over at the Distributist Review posted the article this weekend.)
