JTW Podcast: Communism, Part 4: Modernism Madness

Ninety years ago, the noted English writer G.K. Chesterton gave his opinion of socialism and modernism.  As he said, “anything can be called Socialism, . . . it seems to mean Modernism; in the sociological as distinct from the theological sense. In both senses, it is generally a euphemism for muddle-headedness.” (“There Was a Socialist,” G.K.’s Weekly, May 10, 1930.)

Of course, as we introduce this week’s podcast, we again issue the caveat that these videos are recorded for a “Catholic audience,” and may use terms in ways with which some people are not familiar and may raise questions.  After all, what is so wrong about being modern?  Well, of course, that depends on what you mean by it, and in this context it means that the end justifies the means, which is the first principle of the “new things” of socialism, modernism, and the New Age.
