Aquinas and Nietzsche on the politics of envy
I joined Postliberal Order as a regular contributor. Today, my essay “Against the Politics of Envy” appears at the site. It discusses Aquinas’s account of the nature and effects of the sin of envy, Nietzsche’s account of the nature and effects of ressentiment, and how woke politics is clearly an expression of envious ressentiment as Aquinas and Nietzsche understand it.
