Part 05 - Antonio Oliveira Salazar and the Catholic Corporate State

SKU: 4484D-05


Salazar, an economist at the University of Coimbra, was called in by the army that took power in Portugal from a virulently anti-Catholic government in the late 1920's in order to put the nation on an even keel once again. Perhaps the most intelligent, far-seeing, and prudent representative of the Catholic social movement from the interwar period, Salazar proceeded to create in Portugal a socio-political order founded upon the principles of subsidiarity. This principle understood the individual to be a social being, whose full perfection required participation in many different social organizations, from that of the family up to the Church and State, with all of them playing a role in authoritatively guiding the human person and representing his true will politically. Presented in Gardone, Italy in July of 2018.
