Discussion: Capitalism and Freedom, 1958 edition

This video of Mike Wallace interviewing Mortimer Adler in 1958 is very interesting for a variety of reasons, not least the level of public discourse commonly practiced at the time. You wouldn’t see something so elevated on television in our dumbed down age. The most startling notion put forward here, in my view, is that property ownership divorced from political enfranchisement is inimical to liberty.
