R. R. Reno on the triumph and the downsides of capitalism:
The history of modern politics shows again and again that we can exercise political power to ameliorate and mitigate the social consequences of free market capitalism. This can only be done by limiting its powering motor, which is economic freedom, whether directly through regulation, or indirectly, through taxation.
Also today, Aaron Taylor on Christianity and same-sex attraction:
The distinction between sexual and erotic desire is vital to grasp if Christians wish to speak intelligibly to our culture about same-sex attractions and relationships. Many who reject the Church’s teaching on homosexuality do so because they mistake it for a blanket statement that it is wrong for two people of the same sex to love and be committed to each other.
