Pope Francis Contra Property Rights, Borders

Imagine a world of Antifa-style anarchy taken to the last extreme, with no national borders and no private property. It would be pointless to lift a finger with the entire Third World at your doorstep, ready to seize any wealth you are foolish enough to create. Civilization would be impossible. We would degenerate to a level below even animals, which at least understand the concept of property. Unfit to exist, the human race would die out. This is the vision implied by Pope Francis Sunday:

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that “the wealthy few” enjoy what, “in justice, belongs to all” and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants.

The word “migrants” is now used to describe people of one country who invade another to help themselves to its wealth like locusts.

Francis said the poor were weeping “while the wealthy few feast on what, in justice, belongs to all. Injustice is the perverse root of poverty.”

Only by a grotesque misconception of justice does wealth belong equally to those who create it and those who don’t. This contradicts the Bible.

It is true that injustice is the root of poverty. When property rights are not respected, this injustice invariably leads to poverty; the greatest wealth is produced when property rights are upheld.

The antipode of poverty is wealth, not moonbattery.

On a tip from 1-Bodhisattva.
