    The Acton Institute has some pretty good insight on this insitute:

    Here is a video from an Acton thinker speaking at Wheaton–Dr. Anthony Bradley–he calls for mobilizing around human dignity (our own solidarity as human beings–the imagio dei):

    Dr. Bradley arguments that those at the margins need to be loved and respected–not pitied. We tend to view “others” as human beings–we instead label them as less than human. He points to the need to avoid White Messiah complex which David Brooks explains in the context of the movie “Avatar” He then seems to make the (from my perspective erroneous assumption) that new monasticism is based on the messiah complex.

    Dr. Bradley frames much of the speech around African Americans & racism in America.
