Catholic Political Thought

I’m taking an ICC course on Catholic Political Thought, taught by Dr Chad Pecknold, with over 2500 participants from over 65 countries. Here are a few of my presuppositions:

  • Politics is about the tension between human nature and the common good for a reasonably cohesive and well defined group of people.
  • Political thought has, historically, been founded upon city government and the importance of communication and coordination has been underrated with regard to more dispersed groups of people.

Somewhat related to this:

Can a large organization do without one dominant, official language? The Roman Catholic Church’s abandonment of Latin has implications for the Catholic Church as a whole; in particular, both English and Italian become more important, albeit for different reasons.
