The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 84 – Disobey Lockdown Now

Sep 9, 2020

Catholic theologian Douglas Farrow and Lutheran political
scholar Andrew Busch be a part of the present to debate their latest essays
on the coronavirus lockdown, and assess the explanations and prospects
for civil disobedience.

In “The Well being-First Heresy,” Farrow examines the responses of
Catholic and different Christian leaders to the state’s orders to stop
company worship. No matter concessions the Church might make to the
state as to the circumstances below which worship is held, she might
not merely droop her correct actions indefinitely till the
state provides the phrase.

In “The Limits of Experience,” Busch assesses the place “following
the specialists” (which of them? in what fields?) has gotten us thus far and
factors out the hazards of pretending to switch statesmanship with

[49:56] Take heed to—Which scientists? In what fields?

[56:30] The monitor report of the specialists

[58:56] The authorized fallout of accepting lockdowns

[62:47] Shifting the goalposts from “flattening the curve” to
eliminating all circumstances

[1:04:13] Rule by specialists is incompatible with the consent of
the ruled

[1:07:47] Different motives behind lockdown

[1:10:29] Why coordinated civil disobedience wants to start
NOW—no ready for a vaccine

[1:21:06] Hanging a stability between resisting irrational worry
and taking acceptable precautions
