The Pope’s Problem with Basic Economics
*** begin quote ***
As Rothbard has written:
It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.
When it comes to economics, the Pope’s views reflect the uninformed views of most of the masses. He is one among billions.
Catholics and atheists should give him no special attention on this topic.
*** end quote ***
Unfortunately, I think that Pontiffs, straying outside of faith and morals, have damages the image of the Church.
This Pope’s embrace of “climate change”, “greedy businessmen”, and “pedophilia” has just destroyed the moral high ground that he should occupy.
It’s just more “watermelon”— green on the outside and red on the inside — trying to take away individual liberty and give power to Gooferments.
It’s hard to be a big C “catholic” any more.
