A Community of Individuals

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament remind us hundreds of times that righteous conduct and justice require each individual to soften his heart to make him attentive to the needs of others, to keep him from being self-centered. 

This is very different from left-wing liberalism’s presumption that the perfect social paradigm ? political-correctness and egalitarian social justice ? is exclusively the product of the collectivized, materialistic political state.
