Good News: A Sunday Message from the Pope!
Pope Francis says coronavirus pandemic has further exposed capitalism’s flaws


ROME (AP) — Pope Francis says the coronavirus pandemic has proven that the “magic theories” of market capitalism have failed and that the world needs a new type of politics that promotes dialogue and solidarity and rejects war at all costs.

Francis on Sunday laid out his vision for a post-COVID world by uniting the core elements of his social teachings into a new encyclical aimed at inspiring a revived sense of the human family. “Fratelli Tutti” (Brothers All) was released on the feast day of his namesake, the peace-loving St. Francis of Assisi.

Pope says free market, 'trickle-down' policies fail society


VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis said on Sunday that the COVID-19 pandemic was the latest crisis to prove that market forces alone and “trickle-down” economic policies had failed to produce the social benefits their proponents claim.------

As a Catholic, I agree that the current Pope is communist scum.

What he supports was already done in 1917. Ended up in the death of 60 million people.

He needs to be removed from his post.

What is the Popes alternative suggestion to capitalism? Does he have a viable option or is he just hot air?

Covid is going straight with the 1917 playbook.

We have a commie revolution underway under the guise of containing a pandemic

The biggest hint, as if you needed one, is he didn't only accept that crucifix above, but he kept it!

Me? I would have done like an auto da fe ritual with it.

Maybe refused to accept it, if I wanted to minimize controversy.

there is no capitalist , socialist divide.

every country is a mix of both and it has to be that way.

the church has traditionally been left on economics and right on social issues.

now with the jesuit infiltration they are left on economics and left on social issues.

the church is subverted.

I don't know what he's proposing (probably communism) but there is a third way that's based on Catholic social teachings, i.e. Distributism. Hilaire Belloc was probably its best proponent. I recommend his book The Servile State. He argues that both Capitalism and Communism lead to tyranny and that a mix of the two is no better.

What does he recommend then? I'm really curious what the best workable system really is. I know some systems can work if they have a spiritual foundation but that doesn't exist. So what's the right option for non-spiritual peoples?

Distributism. I'm an atheist, but I still see it as the best solution.

This looks like a good, somewhat short, explanation of Distributism.
