The actual problem will not arise until the majority no longer has morality. At present, those who are immoral can exist in a relatively safe environment because they are not the majority. However, when most people are no longer held in check by morality, then the immoral majority will cease to tolerate one another, and laws will no longer constrain people. Imagine a world where everyone was acting in only their own self interest instead of today when people are restrained by faith based tenants of civility towards society. Imagine that everyone is taking and charity no longer exists.
To put this in a clearer prospective, understand a world where children are unrestrained by becoming responsible adults and that they seek only gratification of oneself; that individuals are immature to the point that they demand society give them everything they want; imagine a United States where everyone is a democrat demanding that they be given everything and that there is no one else to take from in order to supply their demands. This is the crisis the Pope refers although he does not yet understand that the world is fast becoming one in which all men are takers, not makers, and God's restraints upon mankind no longer serve to temper his Passion.

In some parts of the world (including areas in these United States) this is already realized. God have mercy on those of us who still have ears to hear Him.
