Pope’s god of money . . .

Blithe Spirit

“​Pope Francis’s edict on climate change will anger deniers and US churches,” says left-wing Guardian of England, quoting him:

“In recent months, the pope has argued for a radical new financial and economic system to avoid human inequality and ecological devastation. In October he told a meeting of Latin American and Asian landless peasants and other social movements: “An economic system centred on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it.” ​

​There’s more in this vein.

​What does he have in mind? something of government control? He’s not big on political freedom, I’d say.
But it’s never been a priority for the Vatican, which has proven it can live with all sorts of autocracies.​
