Re Sheehan/McClory article, April 21, 1989:

“There is little philosophy in these pages in which the idea of emancipation and of struggle against oppression, in itself a great and holy idea, is turned into the old story of revolutionary pedantism and seasoned with the trash of confusions and untruths in which a facile journalism delights.”–a perennially applicable comment of Jacques Maritain, from his Moral Philosophy, 1964 (p. 361).
