Why, he seems no different than the rest of the one-world commie bastards.
We already have a global regulatory body - it’s rule is “pass the tab for the recession onto the American taxpaying class.”
International banks and businesses have covered their butts at your expense. From what Ihave read, the Pope is arguing that multinational banks and businesses currently operating above and beneath the law and are acountable to no one, and pass their failures and misery onto whomever they can.
I do not agree that a multi-national oversight group is the answer, because they are human and are as susceptible to the sin of greed and are as weak before the covetousness of power as the rest of us.
I need to read the Pope’s words themselves, in the context of his speech and argument. Reuters summaries won’t do, much less their headlines.
See CS Lewis: “Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
Why do you have to call the Pope a bastard? Is that really necessary?
