Social justice, the common good, and individual liberty—common terms, loosely used today. According to Michael Novak [1], “all three need, in every generation, to recover their often lost precision.

Follow Novak’s three-part series “On the Square” [2] (First Things) as he seeks “to find some precision in these three realities.” Watch Novak’s recent lecture at The Heritage Foundation, “Social Justice Is Not What You Think It Is.” [3] To read more, click here [2].
