Catholic Economics, Part 4: Are You Sure You Own Yourself?

Pavel P

Daniel Schwindt - published on 04/22/14 - updated on 06/07/17

At this point, justice would naturally be our next subject of discussion. First, however, we need to clear the fog away from a certain confusion of terms which has made any discussion of justice impossible. I am referring here to the intermingled definitions of the terms “Charity” and “Justice.” While these are two very distinct concepts, the distinction between them has decayed in the modern vernacular. Charity now means essentially whatever the speaker wants it to mean, leaving the concept of justice to spiral off into incoherence. This vital differentiation, then, is what we’ll talk about next week.

Daniel Schwindtis a member of the Solidarity Hall thinker-space, and the author of several books including Holocaust of the Childlike and The Pursuit of Sanity.
