Fr. Robert Sirico was recently interviewed by Fr. Robert McTeigue, S.J., on The Catholic Current. Their topic: ‘Socialism & Venezuela: What Can Catholics Learn?’
The conversation was wide ranging. It begins with a consideration of the disastrous socialist commitment to central planning and its present fruit of shortages, starvation, and totalitarianism in Venezuela. The role of profits, rule of law, and morality in the market economy is also explored with an in depth discussion of the unique contributions of Catholic social teaching to our understanding of the proper role of the state, business, charity, and individual responsibility in our world today.
This engaging interview is now available from The Station of the Cross Catholic Radio Network for streaming.
