Ed Morrissey, guest host –

Dr. Randall Smith: Greater respect for the Constitutional order & a willingness to sacrifice our “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” in its preservation are the only things standing between us and tyranny; students should learn a required understanding of the text of the Constitution; important debate about the virtues and dangers of nationalism, Jacques Maritain can help clarify what nationalism means. 

Elizabeth Scalia: Engaging online: Five tips from St. Benedict; people are reacting-at instead of responding-to each other; we need to learn to listen well, see Christ in others, be humble, laugh more; restoring the health of our society will be a long haul.
