I think the issue is not talking about government control over economics, rather about the responsibilities of individuals within those economies.

Bull. There is no way to sugarcoat what this pope is saying:

Pope Francis denounced “ideologies which uphold the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation, and thus deny the right of control to States, which are themselves charged with providing for the common good.”

This is socialist claptrap. Period. This is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect to hear from an economic leftwing Argentinian - which is exactly what Pope Francis is.

This same Pope that said two days ago:

"Let us think of that moment with the Magdalene, when she washed the feet of Jesus with nard, which was so expensive: it is a religious moment, a moment of gratitude, a moment of love. And he [Judas] stands apart and criticizes her bitterly: 'But ... this could be used for the poor!'. This is the first reference that I personally found in the Gospel of poverty as an ideology. The ideologue does not know what love is, because they do not know how to gift themselves".

Whatever you say Hoss.
