    Who Was Dorothy Day? (Christian Anarchism Clip 5)

    In this selection from the final session of Summer Seminar 2022 on Christian Anarchism, I discuss Dorothy Day's background and motivation for co-founding the Catholic Worker movement with Peter Maurin. Dorothy Day is currently being considered for sainthood by the Catholic Church, and there is a growing interest in her philosophy and work.

    The Amish and Bruderhof Are Partly Right (Christian Anarchism Clip 4)

    The Amish and Bruderhof Are Partly Right (Christian Anarchism Clip 4)

    In this segment from the fourth session of the Christian Anarchism Summer Seminar, I discuss the pros and cons of communities like the Amish and Bruderhof. The inherently exclusive nature of such communities is both heir strength and weakness. Is there any way to learn from them while doing something that includes more people and thus has more promise for solving social and environmental problems?

    Why Overturning Roe is Not a Victory

    Why Overturning Roe is Not a Victory

    Abortion in the US is a part of the torn social fabric that pro-life Christians, along with everyone else, have created.Without taking real responsibility for that reality, the changes in state law will probably just make things worse. What would Christians have to do next to be truly pro-life and to abandon what Pope John Paul II called the culture of death? … More Why Overturning Roe is Not a Victory

    Why Religion and Politics Don’t Go Together (Christian Anarchism Clip 2)

    The second session of the Summer 2022 Christian Anarchism seminar went deeper into major themes in Christian Anarchism, including the importance of the Sermon on the Mount. The Jesus that emerges in that sermon is a revolutionary, but not the typical type. The ideas in the sermon and elsewhere in Jesus’ teaching reveal a God … More Why Religion and Politics Don’t Go Together (Christian Anarchism Clip 2)

Thank you

Great readings of Mouffe. Much appreciated for sharing!

Excellent exploration of big political ideas.

Was looking for someone who engages with the communitarian critique and I think I’ve hit the jackpot. I hope she keeps looking at other communitarian thinkers like Charles Taylor, and I’d especially like a commentary on Michael Walzer’s Spheres of Justice.
