A recent post on the Tea Party Movement was meant to elicit some discussion of how the central core of the Tea Party Movement seemed to be like the basic thrust of Rerum Novarum, published 15 May 1891. For me, one of the big takeaways of Rerum Novarum is the idea of subsidiarity. Subsidiarity is the idea that no higher or larger level organization should take action or make decisions when some smaller unit of organization is perfectly capable of doing the job itself.
I will try to be briefer in the future.
