Embrace Humanity, not Ideology

One of the great contributions of the Christian Humanists of the twentieth century–in particular, Christopher Dawson, C.S. Lewis, and Russell Kirk–is the realization that no left-right divide exists beyond the contrivance of those who seek power.  They employ it as a means to divide those who would challenge them.

Some great quotes from Christopher Dawson, 1946.

The virtues of justice and goodwill, the virtues of truth and patience, above all the virtue of prudence. . . . It is only by the exercise of these virtues that it is possible to save society from the political disintegration that threatens it, and maintain an island of society amidst the rival barbarians of Left and Right.

The way of life is the way of justice which turns neither to the Right nor to the Left.
