Vatican to anti-anticommunism

This is much more than a simple moral lecture; are a placement of who should control the financial markets.
At least this time, says Francis, the global economy needs more government control - and this is an argument that in the last fifty years was unthinkable expressed by the Pope. He writes:

"It is vital that government leaders and leaders of financial institutions to broaden their horizons and to pay particular attention to ensure that all citizens decent work, education and healthcare.

While the profits of a minority grow exponentially, so does the gap between the majority of the abundance that this happy minority enjoys ... Consequently, the favored reject the right of states, which are charged with the defense of the common good, to exercise any form of control. Thus is born a new tyranny, often invisible but real, which unilaterally and ruthlessly impose their own laws and rules.

"A new tyranny", indeed. It is clear that communism does not represent anymore for Francis a major ideological threat. Pope sees biggest threat in politics and economy of different regions of the world: the United States and Europe.

In terms of "ecclesiastical strategy ', if we can say so, these rhetorical goals seem extremely memorable. In the last decade, the Roman Catholic leaders in the U.S. have faced one crisis after another, among them numerous accusations of pedophilia. In communities of Catholics in Europe, so the turnout in liturgy and interest in becoming a priest is diminishing, especially after the recent revelations in Ireland for the abuse of children in religious schools and orphanages.

On the other hand, the links with the Church seems to deepen in the southern regions, Latin America and Africa. It is important that there are emerging economies hit extremely hard by the global economic crisis of the past five years. Perhaps this trend is partly motivated Pope. The places where the body of the Church is growing most rapidly are the places where live the poorest people on the planet - people who are victims of free market capitalism, says Francis. I quote again the words:

"The ongoing economic crisis may cause us to overlook the fact that it stems from a deeper crisis: denial of protarchikotitas the human face! Created new idols. The worship of the ancient golden calf (see Exodus 32: 1-35) returned in a new and ruthless version as idolatry of money and the economy as a faceless dictatorship that has no real human purpose.

The global crisis affecting the financial sector and the economy undress imbalances and, above all, the lack of any real care for people; characterizes man shrinks its discounted only one needs: eating. "

The Pope, among others, may express the generalized frustration felt by his congregation. Youth unemployment reaches 40% in Italy and 56% in Spain - two of the largest Catholic countries in Europe. And although Greece is a country dominated by Catholicism continues to be a symbol of a generalized concern for the economic policies followed in Europe as austerity. The harsh words of Francis seem to catch that spirit of protest against the dominant economic order.

Apart from this, his words also indicate something important in the field of geopolitics: the distance between the American and European capitalism. The Pope's statements mark a bold ideological recasting of the Church which has been historically the physical, spiritual and ideological base in Rome. Objecting to the Church in a free market, the Pope gave significant weight and legitimacy of progressive leftist groups that support increased state control over markets. If it was not already clear, these statements confirm that the ghosts he saw the Church during the 20th century have now faded - at least as regards the Vatican. Visit Website for more information.
