On liberal high-culture vultures
By Jeff Culbreath

I’ve long been acquainted with a version of this. In this case the political leftism is either of the modern kind or comes from the intended charity of orthodox Anglo-Catholicism past (which often described itself as socialist), in this resembling the Democratic politics of city and rust-belt American Roman Catholics and 1930s Catholic Action (Dorothy Day). Theologically sound but economically naïve and politically wrong.

Of course you can be friends with all kinds of people and God uses any means he wants but both as Catholics and as libertarians our alliances with the left just like with the right are always only provisional.
