Today on the Ed Morrissey Show, Father Marcel Guarnizo discussed his recent article regarding socialism, communism and Christianity. He made clear that three types of freedoms are inherently intertwined: cultural, political and economic. We cannot have one of these be trampled and expect the others to remain intact. Here is the link to the video.
As a supplement to understanding these matters as they're unfolding before our eyes, I recommend the following book. It's called "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes Of Political Madness", written by Lyle H. Rossitter, Jr, MD. I recommend it particularly so that we might understand why socialism has such seductive sway over so many, as Father Guarnizo noticed. It's not an easy read, but well worth the time investment.
Father Guarnizo will be interviewed tomorrow night, 10:00pm est, by Christine Le Niles on her Forward Boldly blog-talk radio show. Here is the link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/forwardboldly/2014/02/09/forward-boldly-interview-with-fr-john-hollowell-fr-marcel-guarnizo
