The Church doesn’t support any type of government.
What it is concerned about is the freedom of religious belief and practice.
I remember Pope John Paul II saying some remarks similiar to Pope Francis’ when the former was elected. Later after some more exposure to Western economies after growing up in Poland, JPII said that the best ‘economic’ system – his personal opinion – was the free market with a strong moral voice.
I also remember reading that Mexico, and not the USA, was the center of learning for the New World. The Spanish colonialists through the leadership of the church there, primarily Bishop Zumarraga, was responsible for educating the native Indian peoples, and giving women and girls the right to an education hundreds of years before North America provided that right.
Indians were teaching at Mexican universities in the early 1500’s. There came about a well being of most people there. However, in time the clergy began to be perceived as wealthy, contradicting the Gospel, which in turn led to the Masonic Revolution and later persecution and martyrdom of good priests and Mexican Catholics. After that, the country became poor, and now today the condition in parts of Mexico are horrific due to the drug cartels.
I remember St. John Vianney in time being responsible for closing down the bars in Ars, France, and then the end of poverty.
The middle class is the one now carrying the highest tax burden. The average American is $10,000 in debt. Jobs are going overseas; now even our produce such as chicken is being sent to China for processing and sent back here for consumption…that plan now in the making.
I think those who are the most rich now are the transnational corporate heads and Washington, DC is the richest city. The transnationals are essentially in identity nationless. Their profits compared to combined low and middle income ,makes ours a blip.
My retired husband just found out he lost his medical insurance provider, his pension cost up $15 but must pay out of pocket until he gets expenses covered, and Medicare Advantage is intended to be phased out which is providing exceptional care for its patients vs Medicare, of whom many doctors no longer want to serve because of lack of compensation.
It takes 3 incomes now to raise a family. And to think the young people will take on the huge national debt, pay through insurance the sick and infirm, college debt…they are already economically destroyed. How can they even afford to have a family of their own.
I heard our administration say just so many years back that it would be the elderly who would have to sacrifice. So there goes our veneration and care of the aged.
The young and the old…what care for them???
And the rich who subsidize our taxes…they can always leave our country and go someplace else to live without impunity.
Anyway, I see the present changes happening in our country the work of a death culture that will destroy the future of our young and take away care of the old, the weak, the infirm.
