Abstract: The question posed in my title is meant to be thought-provoking, but it and the topics announced in the subtitle are broad and not altogether easy to discuss. Moreover the difficulty is not simply one of the scale of the subject matter. For it is by no means clear that there is any single political view that may claim the title "Liberalism" , or that there is a definite set of historically articulated principles that can be set out as giving the content of something called "Catholic Social Teaching", or that there is one thing that deserves the label "Communitarianism".
