Acton Institute on the Pope's new encyclical: “a familiar mixture of dubious claims, strawmen, genuine insights”

"Like most social encyclicals, Fratelli Tutti addresses a hodgepodge of topics. These range from detailed analysis of contemporary populism to explorations of the meaning of kindness, reciprocity and gratuitousness.... [it] insists on the need for Christians and others to be open to learning from others. In fact, the word 'open' is used no less than 76 times, and goes hand-in-hand with a stress on the need for dialogue (referenced 49 times)." - Acton
