07/20/2005Murray N. Rothbard

In this unpublished memo to the Volcker Fund in May 1960, Rothbard discusses some of the enormous differences among Catholics on political and economic questions: Catholics can be found who are left-wing anarchists, socialists, middle-of-the-roaders, fascists, and ardent free-enterprisers and individualists. Furthermore, even on such strict dogmatic matters as the immorality of birth control, for example, Catholics agreeing on that point differ as to whether birth control should or should not be illegal.
