Commonweal Catholic Magazine

Commonweal Magazine
Associate Editors: Grant Gallicho, Matthew Boudway, Mollie Wilson O'Reilly
About the Magazine
Commonweal’s mission is to provide a forum for civil, reasoned debate on the interaction of faith with contemporary politics and culture. Read by a passionate audience of educated, committed Catholics, as well as readers from many other faith traditions, Commonweal presents well-argued, respectful points of view from across the ideological spectrum. In an often contentiously divided Catholic church and secular culture, its status as an independent, lay-run journal of opinion encourages conversations that can be difficult in other settings.

Since its founding in 1924 Commonweal has staked a claim for Catholic principles and perspective in American life, and for laypeople’s voices within the church. It has been credited with helping prepare American Catholics for Vatican II and its aftermath, and Commonweal’s current readers say it has helped them weather the sexual-abuse scandal in the church and work through questions and frustrations related to the role of women, the relationship between religion and politics, and church teachings on sexuality. Today the magazine maintains prolife convictions while being critical of single-issue abortion politics, and provides a space for marginalized voices in the church and on the national scene. Commonweal publishes many of the leading Catholic theologians, writers, and public figures in the United States, including Alice McDermott, Luke Timothy Johnson, Margaret O’Brien Steinfels, Ken Woodward, Paul Elie, and Sidney Callahan, among many others.

Commonweal is published 20 times a year in print as well as in digitally enhanced multimedia formats, including special issues each year dedicated to contemporary theology, interreligious dialogue, books, and fiction. It also operates a continuously updated website and blog at www.commonwealmagazine.org. Thanks to the generosity of donors, many of its resources are available at no charge to Catholic undergraduate and graduate students. It is edited by Catholic laypeople and published by the nonprofit Commonweal Foundation. A brief history of the magazine is available here.

Was Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) A Nazi? Why Join the Hitler Youth?
By Austin Cline
K. Rupert Murdoch is a papal knighthood knight, and the titled of his biography is “The Man Who Owns the News”.
The power of the press can be used to deliberately lead people astray, and to make them believe whatever propagandists want them to believe. In honor of the first man to use them I call modern propaganda and information-management techniques "Hitler's Legacy".
When Adolph Hitler took power in Germany he also took over the media, and he used it to shape a modern, civilized country to his ends. With full control of the national press his propaganda minister Paul Josef Goebbels developed sophisticated and very effective tools of propaganda to control public opinion in Germany, and even in other countries.
He proved that if you repeat a lie often enough in mass media, most people will accept it as the truth.
