The Catholic Tradition Podcast: Episode 45


Jul 28, 2019

Thomas discusses his libertarian previous, explains why he deserted
that political philosophy, and summarizes an article on the subject
by the Catholic thinker 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 personal
property rights can’t be reconciled with classical pure legislation
principle, and lays out a correct pure legislation principle of personal
property rights and taxation.
