Lecture 10: The Catholic Response – Part III

Dr. Matthew Petrusek

February 7, 2023


In the final lecture, Dr. Petrusek examines progressivism’s problem with evading hypocrisy and how it undermines freedom of speech. We conclude with the Catholic response both to these problems and to the overarching issue that bedevils the entire progressive-wokeist enterprise: the idolatry of group identity.

In this lecture series, Dr. Matthew Petrusek discusses contemporary progressive ideology, also frequently referred to as “wokeism,” and the response of the Catholic social thought tradition.
