Nov 19 Bp WIlliamson Column

I don't find the encyclical vague, but when I first read it I immediately understood why American Catholics were almost all Democrats until Roe V. Wade. Socialists indeed can find a reason to nationalize anything, and Liberals (i.e. free-marketers) can find a reason to privatize anything. Thus:

"46. Accordingly, twin rocks of shipwreck must be carefully avoided. For, as one is wrecked upon, or comes close to, what is known as "individualism" by denying or minimizing the social and public character of the right of property, so by rejecting or minimizing the private and individual character of this same right, one inevitably runs into "collectivism" or at least closely approaches its tenets."

It is impermissible to baptize Marx; it is equally wrong to baptize von Mises.
