On Thursday, the Vatican released an encyclical on the environment. Befitting Pope Francis, it was very political and very liberal.
Pope Francis is an avowed leftist. He believes that western countries owe a great debt to other nations around the world. Railing against the supposed ills of “finance and consumerism” this encyclical is thinly veiled in its hatred for capitalism.
Instead of focusing on Christians being slaughtered around the world, he’s fixated on undercutting the fabric of the international economy.
Pope Francis ignores what capitalism has achieved: great developments in human quality of life, in medical care, in wealth and corresponding personal freedom. And he wants us to retreat into a world of the past in which men like himself deny us the freedom to choose our own destinies.
