First Things discovers Taparelli

Earlier, I called him a forgotten founding father of the Right.  A little while ago, First Things had an “On the Square” article on Luigi Taparelli D’Azeglio’s understanding of “social justice”.  (Basically, social justice=doing justice to man in his social nature, i.e. promoting the social structures in which integral human virtue can flourish.)  It’s a pretty good article, although it more-or-less reduces Taparelli to a Red Tory type.  As John Rao has shown, Taparelli was much more interesting than this.
