Matt Kibbe sits down with Father Robert Sirico, president of the Acton Institute. There’s a lot of talk lately about giving workers “dignity,” as if a higher minimum wage or government-run health care can accomplish this. Father Sirico points out that respect for individual liberty and self-determination is the only way to allow people to realize the intrinsic dignity that exists in every person. It’s not something that can be granted by a government agency. Through a series of colorful anecdotes, Father Sirico shows that while collectivist governments can trample on our rights, they can’t offer us something we already possess by the very nature of our humanity.
