Politics: In Pursuit of the Common Good

Politics is simply how we order our common life in pursuit of the common good. Thus, just about everything is political–or at least has political implications. Here, though, I have posted essays that are specifically political in that they critically analyze our contemporary institutions and ideologies. My aim is always the authentic application of the teachings of the Catholic Church–first, in living within modern political society; and second, increasingly, in considering what the Social Kingship of Christ might look like in the twenty-first century and beyond.

I have been privileged to have been able to write about politics at venues such as First Things, Public Discourse, and National Review, among others.
