Still Fighting the Cold War

Many of these old “cold warriors” – along with the post-Cold War world they inhabit – no doubt make the mistake (we are being charitable) of reading into the mutual opposition to Soviet expansionism and atheism of both the Church and the modern, materialist West the unconditional support by the former of the social and philosophical system of the latter. From such a viewpoint, any “third way” beyond capitalism and communism would seem a futile, if not dangerous, compromise between the forces of evil and the forces of evident good.
