Body

“it is illuminating to compare the United States and Canada, which share a continent and have their origin in America’s revolution 250 years ago.

Hence, with many caveats, they can provide useful points of comparison, and give a cautionary tale.” - Providence

Mohler, Deneen, & Classical Liberalism

Body

“Classical liberals have assumed that the natural family and the values surrounding it would prevail ‘in a condition of liberty.’ Yet the radical changes in marriage and the family ‘have all been done in the name of liberty.’ Social conservatism however ‘requires language that goes well beyond that of individual liberty.’” - Juicy Ecumenism

“Among Deneen’s more outlandish proposals is the suggestion that the separation of Church and State be abolished. Pointing to rising ‘deaths of despair,’ Deneen insists that it is not enough to ‘ensure [the people’s] freedom to pursue’ essential goods of human life, such as religious faith.” - Juicy Ecumenism

Body
