The ideology of radical libertarianism is both mistaken and harmful?not least, to legitimate free expression in the service of truth. The error lies in exalting freedom “to such an extent that it becomes an absolute, which would then be the source of values….In this way the inescapable claims of truth disappear, yielding their place to a criterion of sincerity, authenticity and ‘being at peace with oneself’ There is no room for authentic community, the common good, and solidarity in this way of thinking.
Ouch. As a Catholic this harsh criticism from the Church concerns me. They seem to be having as much trouble as anyone adjusting to the changes brought on by the net.
