While commending civil society revivalists' commitment to freedom and equality, this Article argues that the revivalists' moral vision is marred by exclusivity. Roberts locates this moral exclusivity in a flawed account of the relationship between social inequality and moral decline. By discounting the importance of social justice for creating civic faith, involvement, and solidarity, the revivalists' proposals tend to benefit society's most privileged families.
