Peter Lawler - The Moral Foundations of Personal Evolution

From the Big Think blog: Peter Lawler is a postmodern conservative, by his own definition. Here's more from Wikipedia:
Lawler writes broadly from within a Catholic intellectual tradition that emphasizes the importance of limits on unfettered personal autonomy in shaping well-lived lives, as well as the centrality of the love of truth in making sense of the human experience. By no means dogmatic in matters of religion, Lawler does argue that our human moral anthropology suggests the possibility of God's existence and love. His influences include both Catholics (Augustine, Thomas, Pascal, Tocqueville, Flannery O'Connor, and Walker Percy) as well as non-Catholic thinkers (especially Leo Strauss).
On to the post - this is an interesting argument coming from a Catholic.
