All I have to say about the 2012 elections
I really, really try to avoid hyperbole in my writing (the dinner table is occasionally something else)—and indeed some of the hyperbole of the past contributed to the crisis of today (by exaggerating how bad things were yesterday, it discouraged folks from trying to save tomorrow)—but, that said, the 2012 American elections were, I think, a watershed event that any moderately sapient adult should be able to read.
I have a dozen thoughts on the elections, of course, but few of mine are as articulate as those offered by these three veteran observers and clear Catholic thinkers: George Weigel, James Schall, Phil Lawler. Ninety-eight percent of what I think about the elections are found in their essays.
Oremus pro invicem.
