Thomas Merton and Anarchism/1948
"What is this Christian anarchism? Robert Ludlow(Assoc. Editor of the Catholic Worker in the early 1950s) says he is a Christian anarchist. No organized state. That is a hot one, but secretly I am attracted to that sort of thing. Tell it to the hierarchy. Tell it to St. Peter for that matter......Anarchy is a waste of time and a way of getting many headaches."   Thomas Merton on page 203 of  ENTERING THE SILENCE, Volume Two of THE JOURNALS OF THOMAS MERTON, Harper, San Franciso, 1997
