All the yakking about good intentions. On the surface all socialist utopian proposals are pregnant with good intentions but poisoned by the lust for power and control.
My experience with jesuits has taught me they lack humility–the most important characteristic of great men.
They are like oligarchs everywhere–utopia is just one more blue ribbon commission and regulatory regime away.
I could have written this encyclical if I could stop laughing long enough–central planning, fatal conceit ring a bell?
Oh, and like all WELL INTENTIONED SOCIALIST TRACTS–THE POPE GAVE US A HEALTHY DOSE OF ANTI-AMERICANISM CLOAKED AS ANTI FREE MARKETISM. How else would this little man take up for the Palestinians and the Cubans? He thinks he is on the winning side–the side of the socialist oligarchs–just want to get a place at the table of power. Advises Catholics to pray for the Climate Treaty to be completed.
Also recall that a majority of Catholics voted for the Bamster, who hates them and the Jews, with a deep hatred. Catholics are well schooled in accepting oligarchs with a socialist bent.
You see the Catholic church, from the time it became a secular power and more hierarchical, has always been in favor of authoritarianism, and what’s one step away from authoritarianism–totalitarianism.
I knew he was a despot, but this writer thinks he is well-intentioned–so was Mao, and Lenin, and Mussolini–they were for the progress of the human race–a utopia. Let’s call it social justice–maybe a little cramped but good for you and your fellow humans.
