Faith, reason and liberty

Um muito recomendável artigo de Alejandro Chafuen: The Forgotten Hayek: An Antidote For The New Populism?

Then as today the promoters of human freedom were divided in matters of faith and liberty. That division has been costly. F.A. Hayek, wrote about the dangers of separating them, “It is, I think, important that we fully realize that the popular liberal creed, more on the Continent and in America than in England, contained many elements which on the one hand led many of its adherents directly into the folds of socialism or nationalism and on the other hand antagonized many who shared the basic values of individual freedom but who were repelled by the aggressive rationalism which would recognize no values except those whose utility (for an ultimate purpose which was never disclosed) could be demonstrated by individual reason and which presumed that science was competent to tell us not only what is but also what ought to be.”
