Her judgement about journalism makes me think well of her though I never heard of her except the name

Francis Bennett was a Roman Catholic, Trappist monk for a number of years.

The growing concentration of wealth in fewer hands—including among corporate robber barons’ descendants who continue, after multiple generations, to wield the “financial, political, and philanthropic clout” afforded by enormous inheritances to “advance their dynasty-building agenda”—intensifies working-class suffering in the U.S. and poses a t…[Read more]
