Title

The Reasonable Limits of State Activity

Description

In this address to the Educational Convention in St. Louis, MO on June 24, 1919, Cardinal O'Connell warns of the dangers of government interference in business and citizens' private lives. Cardinal O'Connell saw government legislation regarding labor and business as opening the door to a socialist form of government. Consequently, he criticized Bishops' Program of Reconstruction and its call for social reform legislation that would regulate working conditions and wages.
