I know mainstream liberalism is totally incompatible with Catholicism but what about Classical Liberalism? What I mean by ‘Classical Liberalism’ is the political philosophy which finds its origins in the writings of thinkers like John Locke and Edmund Burke. Classical Liberals are very passionate about limited government, the free market and very little interference in what people do (so, absolute free speech for example). I can see how the last of these could cause problems as absolute free speech would include blasphemy and, if there is little interference in what people do, many evils would be permitted.
What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance
