In case you missed it on our homepage, NCR has an article up today by Robert Christian on the hyper-individualism that informs many of the talking points coming from the GOP in DC these days, and why that hyper-individualism does not cohere with Catholic social thought. Be sure to read it.
Robert is a graduate fellow at the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies at Catholic University where I am a visiting fellow. One of the pleasures of working at the Institute has been working with him and the other bright, young graduate fellows. They are bright and engaged and, most importantly, they really love the Church, a fact that shines through in our conversations and is evident in Robert's article.
