    All the right wingers are going, “My religion or my wallet? My wallet is more important so this pope is no good.”

    Is he making fun of the morons who believe this, or is he one of the morons?

    The Pope’s views on economics may be a bit jaundiced as they are seen through a monopolistic eye. Besides which there is scant difference to being controlled by big business or big religion.

    I am sure Pope Francis is a against communism as much as John Paul was. The pope was not talking about capitalism but the consumerism that can come with it, the higher ups in the old Soviet Union lived very very well, they had the best Apartments, country cabins for vacations.

    So what is better riches for a few dozen or a few hundred thousands.

    But don’t forget to stuff money in your envelops for the church and put them in the collection basket every Sunday.

    Valid point, we have seen throughout history the power of money and the power and control it represents.
    I’ve pointed out before the economic definations of Capitilism and Communism are more closely tied to the ability to control and manipulate money, they both end in the same place one or a small group controlling everything for their personal gains against the needs of those under them.
    Think of it as a pendulum with Capitalism on one end and Socialism on the other, take the swings to the apex of the swing and you have total control of power AKA Communism/Ultra-capitalism.

    There is a whole lot more to the saying? about:
    “He who dies with the most toys wins” is represented by political powers and the ability to pass that power to their heirs/friends in the end protecting their power base.

    Forgot to add religion as the third best option of that consolidation of power.

    With monopolization of profits we are left to be slaves to those who control profits.

    Better than being slaves to those who control religion. If you want to see an example of medieval, look at any society that is run by their religious leaders, or their puppets.

    Is it not extreme to make a comment like you just made.

    Well regulated markets. No such thing as “Free Markets” that is a mental delusion.

    @CDK

    Profit is important. However the hidden mantra seems to be profit for the few at any cost to everyone else. Why worker pay hasn’t kept pace with the profits of the corps they work for.

    @Truist

    You don’t want to be in a Plutocracy any more than any other totalitarian form of govt. There are many flavors of that particular poison.
