Robert George's "Wisdom" on Friendship

And so if a friend disagrees about murder being an injustice and even practices it, should one still be friends with that person?

Can one be a dogmatist about theft or murder?

A failure to distinguish between practical and speculative truth, even though in general NNLTists still emphasize the distinction between the speculative and practical intellectg. Apparently they don't understand the implications of their own theory. It is not enough to be a "truth-seeker" to have a real friend. Real friendship is based upon shared agreement on goods and the ordering of actions leading to those goods, because they know that such a unity is necessary for living together. Liberal academics don't have to live with their friends, and so they know nothing about what real friendship requires.

Overselling Catholic Liberal Arts Education

CWR: “Our goal is to help our students find their vocation in life”

“Many people have been attracted by the education we offer, and we’ve grown as an institution,” says Christopher Ice, the third president of Ave Maria University. “This previous school year we had 1,100 students; this fall, we expect to have 1,200.”

Our goal is to help our students find their vocation in life. That could be a priest or religious, marriage or the single life, or it could be in a particular secular career. When our graduates leave, we want them to have a clear picture of where they want to go. They’re aided by an active spiritual life on campus, which includes three daily Masses, daily confession, perpetual Eucharistic adoration, praise and worship and rosary nights.

What do they know about vocation for the majority of Catholics other than wage slavery?

Hillsdale's Brand of Conservatism


A Straussian Fantasy

And a poor understanding of the Constitution:

The U.S. Constitution’s letter gives nearly all powers of government to the states, and reserves unmentioned ones “to the people.” Surely that includes powers over bathrooms, marriages, who competes with whom in sports, etc. It certainly includes power over elections. Customarily, we have regarded counties and cities purely as legal creatures of the states, enjoying only such autonomy as the states may concede. Though a federal statute granting broad autonomy over such matters to the states’ constituted sub-units and giving enough likeminded people the power to form units that enjoy such autonomy would run against more than a century of court decisions, it finds no barrier in the Constitution’s letter. Congress and the president can do this.
