AMERICAN FAMILIES PLAN: As per usual, Democrats have given a backwards name to an initiative. One might think that something called an “American Families Plan” would promote the family.

CATHOLICISM & ECONOMICS: Thirty years ago today, Pope John Paul II issued a landmark encyclical on economics called Centesimus Annus. Catholic scholar Stephen White notes that John Paul recognized that socialism had a fundamental error in reducing the human person to a cog in a machine that denied the transcendent destiny of every person.
