Despite Marxism’s growing popularity among young people, church authorities spend little time discussing the topic – and when they do, they often speak in a misleading way. Thankfully, Bishop Robert Barron, the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, addressed the topic at length last week.
He made “Karl Marx and Millennials” the topic of a recent episode of his podcast, “Word on Fire.”
In addition to giving a brief overview of Communist philosophy, Bishop Barron answers such questions as:
Can you be a Marxist without being an atheist?
What is the relationship between private property and freedom?
Is Communism inherently violent?
