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.
