I originally thought that “Downward Mobility,” just based on the name, was going to be about the cycle people with few means find themselves in as they struggle to find their way out of hardship. Instead, Brackley suggests that people can become more Christ-like by separating themselves from “ladder climbing” upward, instead choosing to move downward. In moving downward, the people who have chosen this lifestyle (like the judge) have found a way to simplify their lives and find solidarity with...

Luigino Bruni discusses the interrelated nature of economics, relationships and happiness in “The Wound and the Blessing.” This is an extremely dense excerpt, and I almost don’t know where to begin. I’ll start with a quote that stood out to me, “…solitude as the certain prescription for happiness without risk.” Bruni steps away from this idea, towards humanism, and later argues that there can be no real happiness without community and human interaction -- but when I first read it, I had to mo...

It is difficult to even begin to comment on “Monsenor: the Last Days of Archbishop Romero” when I have never experienced anything like the oppression of the El Salvadorian people depicted in this movie. Early on in the movie, one of the women said in passing, “all we want is peace.” I have no frame of reference to understand this statement. Somehow I know that life must be at its absolute worst when every day people disappear, or end up dead on the streets at the hands of the so-called securi...

My mind did a backflip after reading that $9,000/year is the appropriate income so that I do not take income from someone else. I wanted to dismiss the figures in The Arithmetic of Compassion right then and there, but David Ulansey (author) warned me against saying “that’s impossible.” So I read on. It’s frightening to believe that a European cow lives on $2.50/day while 75% of Africans live on less than $2/day. When the suggested maximum world income of $6-9,000 is put into that perspect...

I think I posted this in the wrong place last week... it looks like we all accidentally used the "blog" link at the top. I'm just pasting it in to keep the topics together: Early on in "Using our Purchasing Power for Justice & Hope" the authors make the point that we, the consumers, vote with our dollars. This concept is the perfect counter-argument to the fiduciary duty that corporations hold to their shareholders - usually a large corporation would argue that they have to run the business a...
