I’m fond of saying that division of labor is fundamental to culture. In an instructive article on economics, Jeffrey Tucker concludes:
The law was formalized by David Ricardo in England, and further emphasized by economists ever since. The significance is impossible to exaggerate: It means that it is not necessary that all people of the world have the same talents in order to benefit from cooperation. In fact, it is the very diversity of the human population that makes it advantageous for them to work together and trade to their mutual benefit.
What this means is that isolation and self-sufficiency means poverty. Cooperation and the division of labor is the path to wealth. Understand that, and you can refute libraries full of nonsense from both the left and the right.
Now, apply that same natural law to one’s parish, diocese, et cetera and one has a useful focus for a non-partisan ecclesiology.
