unlikely bedfellows

It’s interesting — and, to me, encouraging — to note how much overlap there is between the critiques of the existing order embodied in the platform of the American Solidarity Party (who are basically a bunch of conservative Catholic subsidiarists) and in this op-ed by Cornel West (who is, you know, Cornel West). Put these two documents together and you basically have my politics. If all the people who share these concerns were to find one another, America could be in for a pretty cool shake-up.

I think I’ll be voting Solidarity this election.
