News from the Network, Vol. 15, No. 37


As the world drifts faster into insanity . . . okay, gallops headlong . . . it becomes increasingly evident that the Economic Democracy Act is the only game in town that would put a stop to things like this:

Inflation or Deflation?

There’s an old joke about a hobo who comes to the back door of a farmhouse asking for a handout.  “Can you help a poor man out of his misery?” he asks the tired and overworked housewife.  “Certainly,” she replies.  “Would you rather be shot or hit with an ax?”

JTW Podcast: The Joe and Joe Show

This week we have a special podcast, one specifically about the Just Third Way of Economic Personalism, the Joe and Joe Show with special guests Dawn K. Brohawn, CESJ’s Director of Communications, and Michael D. Greaney, CESJ’s Director of Research, authors of The Greater Reset: Reclaiming Personal Sovereignty Under Natural Law:

News from the Network, Vol. 15, No. 36

As usual, people are in a panic this week over economics and finance when the solution, the Economic Democracy Act, is staring them right in the face.  We know we’ve been saying this for years, but you never know when someone might start paying attention:

A Modest Meditation on Money

The other day we came across an article in Catholic World Report all about how we shouldn’t make a false god out of money, etc., so on, so forth.  Nothing to see here, move one, yaddah, yaddah.  No, this isn’t a lecture on Catholic or even religious views of money, other than to agree with St. Paul when he reminded Timothy that love of money is the root of all evil.  You can probably find the same thing expressed by most other faiths and philosophies in the world, so it’s not particularly Christian; it’s human.

JTW Podcast: The Politics of Aristotle

No, this is not a video about Aristotle’s political activities or opinions . . . at least, not in the modern sense.  Instead, this is a look at one professor’s opinion about a book Aristotle wrote called the Politics, meaning how human beings live together as “political animals”:

News from the Network, Vol. 15, No. 35


This week we again leave it to other media to cover the death of Queen Elizabeth II and specifics regarding the counteroffensive in Ukraine.  We, of course, aren’t ignoring Ukraine, but we are pointing out things that the major media have a habit of overlooking:

Culture Wars

From the 1930s on, Robert Maynard Hutchins of the University of Chicago and Mortimer J. Adler, the “Great Books” philosopher, expressed great concern about the state of American education.  As they saw it, what passed for education had degenerated into vocational training for jobs that either didn’t exist or were completely different than those for which people had been trained.

JTW Podcast: Aristotle on Virtue

Okay, in today’s blog video, forget about the big words and the politically correct lingo and attitudes.  It’s a good overview of Aristotle and his theory that “virtue” is the habit of doing good.  This is the heart of western concepts of what it means to be fully human.  Was Aristotle completely correct?  Of course not, but he was on the right track.  (There was another video that was better for content, but the sound quality was very bad.)

News from the Network, Vol. 15, No. 34

A few things have crowded out Just Third Way-type news this week, such as the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the new offensives in Ukraine that are making astonishing gains.  Still, there are a few items of interest:

A University for Justice?

We’ve been doing a bit of reading in the works of Robert Maynard Hutchins and Mortimer Jerome Adler regarding the state of education today and thought it might be a good segue into a short presentation on “Justice University.”  JU has been around for a while, since 2008 in fact, but it never hurts to have a refresher course, especially since as Hutchins and Adler both noted, education is a lifelong process.

JTW Podcast: The Robert Maynard Hutchins Animated Cartoon

And now for something completely different.  Today we bring you Zuckerkandl! — the “!” is part of the title, by the way — starring the voice and image (more or less) of Dr. Robert Maynard Hutchins, president and then chancellor of the University of Chicago, with Mortimer Adler one of the prime movers behind the Great Books program, educational reformer, and cartoon character . . .

News from the Network, Vol. 15, No. 33

Once again, many of the news items this week make it obvious that the Economic Democracy Act is pretty much the only game in town if you want something that will actually work.  Otherwise, you’re stuck with:
