Liberty or Equality
Publication Date: April 17, 2014
Every Catholic needs to read Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddhin. This man was a genius capable of writing not only history but a philosophy of history. He's fluent not only in Catholic works but in communist and liberal works. His knowledge of leftist works rather reminds me of Paul Kengor, but Kuehnelt-Leddhin is even more perspicacious. His greatest work is Leftism Revisted: From de Sade and Marx to Hitler and Marcuse, but that one is harder to find. Liberty or Equality is a truly good thing to read in order to understand how democracy erodes the liberties we all love and cherish. Equality devolves from equality under the law to the most destructive forms of envy.
