Ships in 3-5 business days
In order to be just, money has to be just money, nothing more… not an instrument of power, nor a means of getting rich by pure speculation, without producing anything nor rendering any... More > service. The only role that justifies money, is the distribution of wealth. It can do so, because it has the power to move things - a power which is based on faith, or trust.

If we stop believing it has such a power, money becomes nothing more than an abstract number on a piece of paper, metal, book or computer. The faith we put in money, however, can go too far, This happens when we begin to believe that money is the real wealth rather than only its servant.

The Idea of Regency in Thomas Aquinas By Jean-Nil Chabot
Paperback: $10.47
Ships in 3-5 business days
In the De Regno, Thomas Aquinas gives a descriptive definition of political regency or regency. Man must govern himself because the spirit that is part of its composition gives him a certain measure... More > of freedom and self-determination by virtue of which he is said to be gifted with free will and master of his fate.
