Korea's Cardinal Cheong on Ecology
His Eminence gets close to Distributivism, Agrarianism, and The Principle of Subsidiarity, it seems, with his latest pastoral letter.

From Gospel call to live ecological life: Korean cardinal:
    In the 16-page letter, Cardinal Cheong said that the concentrated use of fossil energy, threats to the diversity of species on the planet, the effects of petrochemical agriculture, the shortage and unbalanced distribution of food and the insufficient degree of food self-support are all reasons for the crisis.

    "The church should give priority to the practice of the gospel by transforming our life to sustainable and renewable way," he said.
I wonder if the good Cardinal has been reading Mr. Wendell Berry of Kentucky.
