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.
“Pope Francis meets with Scioli, urges him to ‘fight against wild capitalism”
Posted yesterday, same source.
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.”
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.
Rarely if ever does the media report things correctly regarding statements of the Pope.
More than likely this ‘wild capitalism’ means something similar to ‘greed’.
Remember, all Christian teaching agrees this is a sin called: ‘avarice’.
I think one could consider that things like debt slavery and horrible sweatshop conditions are “wild capitalism”. Capitalism is not completely unbridled for good reason— because some people start treating others worse than the machinery, and will do so when they can get away with it. That’s one of the reasons why faith and morality have a roll in the public square, counteracting through culture and the rule of law, the tendency toward cruelty that powerful people can have.
Pope Francis doesn’t like greedy capitalists, but at least he also doesn’t like corrupt governmental leaders, either.
I’m hoping you are correct - not a Catholic, but I really like this guy. Past popes have gotten diverted from the task at hand and made global warming and other off the wall remarks which is not the place of any Church - especially if one believes that God has a plan and it doesn’t say we ruin the earth so we can’t live here any more. The Church should put positive influence on society to hopefully either effect some positive changes, or at the very least reach some new souls for the Kingdom which follows as we get introduced to Eternity vs. the tiny blip we now exist in.
I doubt that it matters who said it, if there were any truth to the word wild capitalism, or if there were any true capitalism of any kind the anti God socialists would not be in control of every thing in the world.
