The new Pope had a meeting today with Buenos Aires governor Daniel Scioli, at the Santa Marta residence in the Vatican City.
We should fight against wild capitalism and confront social injustice, expressed the official in a press release.

The official, I would presume, is not the pope but the governor. wildly poor journalism run amok. IF anyone has another source confirming who exactly made the statement, I would strongly urge you to post it to this thread to clear this up one way or another.
Why not... socialism is working so well in Argentina.
WTF is ‘wild capitalism’? I tell ya’, this Pope is turning into a lib whackjob every month.
If he actually made the statement — it seems from the article that the governor of BA said it. But I can’t tell because the writing is so terrible.
“Pope Francis meets with Scioli, urges him to ‘fight against wild capitalism”
Posted yesterday, same source.
But who was it who said “fight wild capitalism”? Pope Francis or Daniel Scioli? Surely that matters?
I know, see comment #2.
I posted on the original thread of my curiosity as to the context of the quote, or even if it was the whole quote. We finally have a new bishop (who seems to be pretty good so far) after ours was transferred to Joliet, Illinois. Bishop Conlon is a commie and we’re glad to be rid of him, so I’m a bit frustrated when it appears that the Pope is making these comments. I’d love to know more about this comment and conversation if anybody has anything to add!
There’s a lot more “social injustice” under Progressivism/Socialim/Communism than under “wild capitalism,” if you consider the democide of a few hundred million people to be “social injustice.”
I think you’re right...”wild capitalism” is not “capitalism”.
True capitalism is an outgrowth of the Judeo-Christian ethic.
Remember, the forces of evil pervert EVERY good thing...
But the question is — what did the person who made this statement (either the pope or the governor of BA) mean by his statement?
Does Bergoglio affirm the “universal ownership of all goods?”
“Papal Promotion of Collective Ownership and Theft” (By Richard Bennett, former Irish priest)
From the link:
“Another Vatican Council II document upholds the same principle of the universal ownership of all goods and emphatically teaches, If one is in extreme necessity, he has the right to procure for himself what he needs out of the riches of others.
Gaudium et Spes, Vatican Council II: The Conciliar and Post Conciliar Documents, Para. 69.
What in the H is “wild capitalism”? Capitalism?
This Pope and his minions are starting to give me the heebee-jeebees.
If so, it is a poor name for fascism.
Post number 7 explains it, “wild capitalism”. There is another term for it, “crony capitalism”.
