Perhaps coincidentally, our illustrious Editor has linked an article at ANU.ORG
Standing up to the O'Briens</span>
..........from a site whose homepage presently features another fine Dorothy Day article:
Dorothy Day : My Kind of Saint</span>
I never knew how good the lady apparently was. Intriguing quote:
<br style="color: rgb(153, 0, 0);">But it would be a mistake to consider her a liberal with the
connotation that word carries today. We have all, evenCatholics,
become brainwashed into thinking that there are only two political
points of view, liberal and conservative, and that we must fit
ourselves neatly into one category or the other. But that is not
correct - and that is definitely not Catholic.</span>
Her (and other people's) "distributism" sounds a lot like truly free enterprise. Belloc and Chesterton were for it:
I see Wolfram started a thread on it a few years back:

That is fascinating, GardenState. Thanks for bringing Miss Day more to our attention. I love good, ripe, colorful vitriol against what's phony and rotten! Bill Buckley could be good at it, but made a much better target for it in the end.
National Review was my first conservative magazine. I knew nothing of the gewish problem back then (early/mid 1980s) and really enjoyed NR's assaults
on communism and liberalism, but soon came to see through its rapturous Reaganism. Today I can't even stand the smell of the mag.
Are you Catholic yourself, GardenState? If I may ask, that is. We need somebody to report to us on useful Catholic groups and periodicals, maybe in the Bold Catholic priests </span>thread (or a new one). I used to enjoy second-hand copies of Catholic World Report and The Wanderer. Morris Disease and company chew their teeth over the rise of "far right" Catholic organizations and leaders, but alas there don't seem to be any active in my area.
