“One of the key principles of Catholic social thought is known as the principle of subsidiarity. This tenet holds that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization. In other words, any activity which can be performed by a more decentralized entity should be. This principle is a bulwark of limited government and personal freedom. It conflicts with the passion for centralization and bureaucracy characteristic of the Welfare State.”

  1. And it’s also why we need a world full of independent, sovereign nations. NOT a one-world government. Unless, of course, you could get someone awesome to run the world gov’t, like Hillary. Then it would be a-okay. *eyeroll*
