I think the thing we need to remember is that not all rich people in all countries are alike. Some people in various countries really believe that they are aristocrats, not cut from the same cloth as other people, and so debt slavery and other abuses are par for the course. I was just reading about a factory in Bangladesh in the WSJ today. The worker said it was better than her last job because there was “no hitting”. Rich people who run their companies like that are the target of the Pope’s message, I think. I think he is talking about a baseline of just behavior, and not about communist, government-mandated redistribution.
We, the USA are becoming that country while glued to Pawn Dweebs or Honey fat Mom!!
