Weekend Read

The Religious Liberty and Social Justice Reader

Ryan vs Georgetown by George Weigel. Here's a snippet:
What Ryan has in fact done is to follow Benedict XVI and push the subsidiarity-solidarity debate forward, suggesting that there is a kind of moral and political space where solidarity — the moral imperative to live responsibly with and for others — and subsidiarity — the anti-totalitarian, pro-civil-society principle of Catholic social doctrine — intersect. At that broad intersection, there are no obvious answers to public-policy questions, and especially to budgetary questions. But there is prudential judgment: the weighing of risks and benefits; the calculus of probable consequences; the fitting of ends to appropriate means.
And here's Ryan again with Applying Our Enduring Truths to Our Defining Challenge.

And something to frighten you out of complacency this election...Karl Rove's First 2012 Electoral Map leans towards Obama.
