Why Integralism Is an Ideology of Despair

. . .Patrick Deneen’s powerful critique of American liberal democracy has moved several Catholic writers to reconsider their church’s relation to it.  Among the best of these efforts since Deneen’s Why Liberalism Failedcame out earlier this year was a provocative essay published by American Affairs entitled, “The Eclipse of Catholic Fusionism.”  Author Kevin Gallagher declared therein that the prominent Catholics who had worked with political conservatives during the 1980s & 1990s to defend free-market principles were “adulterating the faith” with alien ideas & ignoring the “American Church’s long-standing skepticism of free-market economics”. . .
