Does Catholic political philosophy reduce to practical anarchism?
For instance, Catholic political philosophy entails wanting both tolerance and justice, unchanging laws and a changeable application of those laws, subsidiary and solidarity, it is an “either or” philosophy.
But a political system that favors a thing and its opposite according to differences of circumstance and intention is basically “anarchy”. Indeed we need people in a perfect Catholic state to, IMO, be unimpeded when they both follow laws and when they break them (in the case of unjust laws). And since most laws are opinions and since opinions should not become the subject of contentions, it follows that sometimes people can be allowed to disagree about what law they want to follow or not.
So is Catholic political philosophy “anarchistic”?
