Get updates from Catholic and Enjoying It! delivered straight to your inbox
…because they are basically saying the same thing.
Ethika Politika is a great journal. Bookmark it if you haven’t.
Unfortunately I found their blog extremely difficult to read: Narrow column on the left, half blocked by their claim for support, and leaving at most 5 narrow lines of space to actually read the content. As a senior, I just cannot afford to donate to all the blogs on the Internet, since once the rent is paid, and if I do not happen to have managed to get a little work, I have less than $300 for all the other expenses of the month including phone, electricity and food. So I am certainly not going to “bookmark” it…
Marthe, thanks for your feedback. I publish Ethika Politika and would be happy to consider making corrections / updates to our page layout if it is causing frustration. (Hearing from readers about their experience is critical to making the site as usable as possible.) Can you offer more information about what type of device / browser / screen resolution you are using? That will help me to adjust the page for readers in similar circumstances.
That, alone, would be an enormous contribution to our cause!
The layout is fine for me, except for the slightly irritating popup, and the fact that when you narrow the window to 940px there appears some icons over the text, and they are fixed (not scroll), see screenshot: http://imgur.com/q0GOHkZ
There was, is, and will be a consistent and continuous body of doctrine on the social questions. The pope really is Catholic, and “[e]conomic activity, conducted according to its own proper methods, is to be exercised within the limits of the moral order, in keeping with social justice so as to correspond to God’s plan for man” (CCC 2426). But perhaps this seems an innovation to some because, as Kirk put it, “[i]n a revolutionary epoch, sometimes men taste every novelty, sicken of them all, and return to ancient principles so long disused that they seem refreshingly hearty when they are rediscovered” (The Conservative Mind).
