Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

"Nothing Artifical Between You, It's the Natural Feeling"

Mike Wallace interviews Margaret Sanger in this 1957 video.

Wallace's liberal media bias is over the top here. But the interview is fascinating for a number of reasons.

Sanger's views are extreme, but she tries to distance herself from them during the interview which she knows is a major public relations opportunity.

He tries to be tough on a couple of questions but her a pass on abortion, even after asking her if she thinks murder is a sin.

The discussion of Natural Law is shocking - simply having it appear as a subject on TV is astonishing. We would never hear this today.

Interestingly, Sanger describes her beliefs and she basically describes what is today American mainstream religious belief: God is in me, all religions are the same, etc. The religious syncretism in this context is exposed as the demonic movement that it is.

The irony of the interview is that Wallace is selling Phillip Morris smokes through out the whole thing. The pitch is all about not having anything unnatural or artificial between you and the natural taste of the tobacco.

The language could easily be taken from an anti-contraception chastity talk today. j

At the end of the interview, Sanger says that she is going to take up smoking and use Phillip Morris smokes.

This video is a classic.
