Scaperlanda (from Nov. 2008), "Beyond Politics"

I thought it might be a good time to review our own Michael Scaperlanda's series of posts, from Nov. 2008, "Beyond Politics."  The first installment is available here:

Now that the election is past, I’d like to encourage us to move beyond politics (at least for two years but maybe longer) and to think more creatively about how MOJ and the development of Catholic Legal Theory can contribute its small part to the transformation of our culture. . . .

I'm not sure we're getting the culture back, Professor. Dr. MacAntyre's save-what-can-be-saved approach is looking a lot more promising today.

Professor Garnett,
I would suggest that while you, Michael Moreland, Robby George and others are at the ND conference, you all should start planning a new political party, the Common Good party, where we politically homeless Catholics can finally find a party responsive to the full range of Catholic Social Teaching. That way we can all avoid Professor MacIntyre's increasingly attractive No Voting option (Professor MacIntyre, I understand, is working on a new book on the common good, so get his thoughts...) . I nominate you to lead the party. So Good luck and have fun!
