If I comment about politics, it is from the belief that, at its best, politics (which is the pursuit and management of positions of power) gives us a chance to connect or reconcile with other people, to coordinate my efforts with the efforts of others to work towards worthy goals. Politics ideally balances solidarity (standing with and in support of others) and subsidiarity (I don't leverage power to impose a solution to a problem at such a high level of organization and logistics that the dignity of those being helped is lost in the process). It is my intention that Christian/biblical concepts of human dignity guide my opinions on public policy.
