Over at The Catholic Weekly, we take a look at some utter nonsense from Prager U:
Recently, PragerU sent out a tweet that is worth considering since it demonstrates for those still capable of thought the degrading effect that living in an ideological bubble has on the human heart and mind. It read:
“Since the Left is so much more interested in fixing society than in fixing the individual, politics inevitably becomes the vehicle for societal improvement.”
What can it possibly mean?
That societal improvement is bad? That’s idiotic.
That politics (which is about absolutely nothing other than rightly ordering our common life) should not be a vehicle for societal improvement? That’s idiotic too, as everybody from Aristotle to Aquinas to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church will tell you.
That politics should be about “fixing the individual”? That’s not just idiotic, but deadly dangerous and the polar opposite of anything any conservative of the past has ever believed. Precisely what nobody in their right mind should ever want is a political regime obsessed with “fixing” individual human beings. The state was made for man, not man for the state.
