The Roman Catholic philosophy and the fair distribution of wealth

by R. Rodríguez Bencomo

Pope Leo XIII on May 15, 1891 authored a Papal Encyclical – a latter by His Holiness to a particular audience of Bishops – titled Rerum Novarum (on Capital and Labour) – see here -. In it he addressed the pervasive arguments of socialists, popular at the time, about the abolition of private property through the acting capacity of the State.

Tolerance of intolerance

by Marzouk Ahmed

What is multiculturalism?

by Marzouk Ahmed

We have learned something the hard way, but which a lot of well-meaning people in the Modern West especially Canada where I currently reside has a hard time accepting: All human beings are equal, but all cultures and religions are not. The culture of the Western Enlightenment is better. Read the rest of this entry »
