Lent and technocracy

Those are the topics of my two most recent online columns, one at Crisis Magazine about how to infuse politics with a bit more soul, and one at Catholic World Report about why the Church can’t possibly use modern public language to speak to modern man.



“How to maintain something higher than material interests and power as a basic principle of politics has therefore become an unsolved problem of today’s political life. In a radically secularist age like ours it may be one without a solution.” That last line is really something. I think how the pluralists and others advocating for a neutral state were confident the state could be so unthreatening.
