He wrote his dissertation under the direction of Joseph A. After ordination, he held the following positions: From to he was a member of the editorial board of the "History of Vatican II" project. The faithful know the difference between a bible service and Eucharist, a priest and a lay minister.
By Ian Verrender Posted June 27, How good were the good old days? The Not So United Kingdom and the rest of the world are now about to find out. In the process, we all might discover a few home truths. The first is that maybe those times weren't all they've been cracked up to be.
And the second, more important point, is that it simply isn't possible to wind back the clock. Friday noon our time may well end up as one of those pivotal moments in history; the point that marked the beginning of the end of almost four decades of globalisation and deregulation, a period that saw the dismantling of trade barriers, an incredible rise in global living standards and the ascent out of poverty for millions of people in what once was known as the Third World.
For all the good it has done, however, it has come at a significant cost, particularly in the developed world. The frenetic pace of change has caused enormous social disruption as entire industries and employment have migrated to lower cost centres in Asia and other developing regions.
Those that could take advantage of the changes have enriched themselves beyond imagination. But vast swathes of society have found themselves left behind, forced to compete for jobs at ever lower wages.
That has seen the vast chasm separating rich and poor grow ever wider, fomenting social unrest. In the English capital, there is already talk of "Regrexit" — regret over Brexit — but outside London many are celebrating. Few western politicians even recognise the problem.
Most are happy to continue bowing to the demands of global corporations baying for ever lower taxes in the hope they will end up with a board seat once they're out of parliament. Those that do understand the precarious nature of western industrial society are seeking to exploit it, to whip up hatred and fuel unrest for their own personal gain.
In the UK there is Nigel Farage, a veritable Hooray Henry caricature, who has galvanised the discontent of Northern England and Wales - the areas that once were the engine rooms of the Industrial Revolution - into a nationalistic revolt.
Scratch just a little and it all gets down to immigrants and race. He's been ably supported by the boorish Boris Johnson, who just a few months ago was a vehement supporter of remaining within the European Union, until he saw a once in a lifetime opportunity for self-advancement, his main goal in life.
It's worth reading Nick Cohen's excellent portrait of the man.
And then there's Donald Trump, who takes venality to an entirely new level. There he was on Saturday congratulating Britons on the outcome of the vote. Except that he was on his own golf course in Scotland. That's right, Scotland, the nation that overwhelmingly rejected the exit.
Earlier this year, Trump wrote an editorial for a Scottish newspaper explaining how his determination to ride roughshod over local protesters to his golf course was a shining example of how he would make America great again.
Rather than embracing the future and a world with minimal barriers, the Western world is retreating and starting to look inwards.
The blow dealt to European unity last week may prove fatal. It will deliver succour to those within France and elsewhere whose political and economic ethos is grounded in racism who are advocating a withdrawal from the EU, all under the guise of nationalism.
Perhaps it was inevitable. Throughout the course of human history, wealth, or the lack thereof, has driven social unrest. And so while the incredible benefits of globalisation have lifted many from poverty, it has created alienation and isolation in those areas that have lost out. Globalisation didn't create multinational corporations.
But the free flow of money and the demolition of trade barriers fostered their growth and delivered them the political power to challenge the fundamental ideals of democracy.Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
