Roberto Graziotto, How Christians Should Think About Politics. Reflections in a Time of War (2004).
Roberto Graziotto argues on both philosophical and theological grounds that an authentically realistic statesmanship lives from an at least implicit openness to the sequela Christi as the form of worldly politics precisely as worldly. According to Graziotto, such realism indicates a certain primacy of non-violence, to be firmly distinguished from any form of “blanket pacifism.”
