This organization’s ideas were discussed at some length by an anonymous poster at Mark Shea’s Catholic and Enjoying It (link takes you to the post, the discussion of CESJ is pretty far down in the comments). The Center’s web site is here. Perhaps some of you have heard of it but it was new to me. I haven’t delved very far into their ideas but they seem to have some good ones, and possibly also some bad ones. They’re not Catholic (as an organization) but seem to have absorbed some Catholic ideas about social justice and property. Widespread property ownership seems to be their main cause, and I’m certainly on board with that. But there’s some stuff about the sovereignty of the individual that smells kind of bad, although as noted I didn’t read closely or extensively.

Anyway, seems worth a closer look.
