Pope warns of "invasion" of the libertarians

A Response to Pope Francis' Attack on "Invading" Libertarians - The Dollar Vigilante - Jeff Berwick:

May 1, 2017 -"Pope Francis came out last week with a scathing assault on libertarians. 'I cannot fail to speak of the grave risks associated with the invasion of the positions of libertarian individualism at high strata of culture and in school and university education,' the Pope said in an message sent to members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences meeting in the Vatican....

"That’s news to me. I know libertarianism is getting fairly popular … but 99% of schools I’ve seen are dominated by liberals, leftists and Marxists. The same goes for 'culture' where Hollywood is infested with the same type of communist mindset. I just returned from UC Berkeley where I was pepper sprayed and tear gassed by the communist students who were fighting against free speech, as just one example!...

"Pope Francis ...  went on to say, 'A common characteristic of this fallacious paradigm is that it minimizes the common good,' and continued to call it a 'selfish ideal.'

"Libertarianism doesn’t 'minimize the common good.' How can you minimize the common good by not stealing from or killing your neighbors?

"Someone else had a catchy little thing about that. I think it was Jesus who said, 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' They call it the Golden Rule. And that is essentially the same motto of the libertarians/anarchists and their non-aggression principle (NAP) worded another way....

"The Pope  ... has called countless times over the years for global communism which countries like Venezuela and Cuba are currently enjoying. Libertarians are against theft. It’s actually one of the commandments…. Meanwhile, the Pope is calling for a global system of theft via communism… just like Jesus would have done, right?

"Surely we all remember ... where Jesus said, 'And send forth armed men to extort and rob all in order to give unto those who are in need after the King and his bureaucracy taketh their share'....

"What might be the funniest thing about the Pope attacking libertarians is the fact that he lives one of the most libertarian lives on Earth. He has his own private tax free compound where he hordes tonnes of guns and gold. He is living the libertarian dream ... while he admonishes people to give to the poor from his golden throne."
