Liberty and Property: the Levellers and Locke

October 21, 2010 by

There is no clash between Locke’s libertarian concerns and devotion to “classical virtue.” Devotees of liberty, property, and free markets have generally been moralists as well as adherents of a free-market economy. FULL ARTICLE Murray Rothbard

“A more detailed analysis of 17th-century Dutch politics would show, however, that the free-market, decentralized, propeace party was the republicans or Arminians, followers of the Protestant theologian Jacobus Arminius, who was theologically closer to Catholics in believing in free will for salvation. On the other hand, the “Calvinist” party in Holland favored the Orange monarchy, statism, controlled markets, and a warlike foreign policy.”

Excellent! Few historians recognize this.

Arminianism is closer to catholicism? I always thought they were closer to pelagianism which is definitely non-catholic.
