An interview with Robert A. Sirico regarding the synthesis between religion and liberty. Questions and issues addressed include: What is the origin of the idea that the State has no claim on the soul? What do you say to those who embrace the message of liberty but are fearful of the religious and moral agenda you are describing here? Let me ask you about consumerism and materialism in particular. Are these phenomena intrinsic to capitalism? What particular dangers, if any, are associated with new technologies?
“The capitalist ethic must be tempered by tradition, morality, respect for the settled ways of the past, and active civic involvement. The economic truth about man is true, but it is not the whole truth. Markets do not contain within themselves a moral logic; that must be provided by faith and reason.”
Robert A. Sirico
Robert A. Sirico (1951) is an American Roman Catholic priest and founder of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty.
In 1990, Sirico founded the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting "a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by religious principles." That same year, Sirico was inducted into the Mont Pelerin Society. He served on the Michigan Civil Rights Commission from 1994 to 1998. The Franciscan University of Steubenville awarded Sirico an honorary doctoral degree in Christian Ethics in 1999. The Universidad Francisco Marroquín in 2001 granted him an honorary doctorate in social sciences. He is a member of the American Academy of Religion and of the board of advisors for the Civic Institute in Prague.
Sirico's writings have appeared in First Things, Crisis, Journal of Markets and Morality, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Financial Times, Washington Times, National Catholic Reporter, and National Review. In his writing, he addresses such topics as the ethics of political/social freedom, business ethics, the history of the civil rights movement, and bio-ethics.
