Revisiting the Road to Serfdom

Friedrich Hayek’s 1944 The Road to Serfdom is firmly established as one of those books you’re supposed to read. But on the spectrum of works about economics, it probably falls more on the Wealth of Nations and Das Kapital side than on the Economics in One Lesson or even Freakonomics side. If its style and language appear somewhat dated, that’s because it was published in 1944. It is also focused on conditions to be found in prewar England and Germany, which takes the book into questions of not just economics but politics too.

Life Lived without Law

Two unrelated events have connected themselves in my mind this week. My first story concerns a piece I read a couple of months ago about a priest in the diocese of Fall River, MA.  He had begun his career as a seminarian at St. John’s Seminary, Brighton, MA, in the early 1990s.  In his first-year there, the academic dean, one Fr. John Farrell, not only described one of his homosexual adventures to the whole first-year class, but “inappropriately touched” our student twice or, as we would say in the language of the law, assaulted him. He was not the only...
