The Catholic Culture Podcast: Episode 45

Jul 28, 2019

Thomas discusses his libertarian past, explains why he abandoned
that political philosophy, and summarizes an article on the topic
by the Catholic philosopher Edward Feser. Feser, himself an
ex-libertarian who has written books on Hayek, Nozick and Locke,
argues that the libertarian view of self-ownership and private
property rights cannot be reconciled with classical natural law
theory, and lays out a proper natural law theory of private
property rights and taxation.
