Pope Slams Capitalism, Inequality Between Rich And Poor In New Years Message
#51
Japan's rise to a top nation was accomplished through their version of distributism. Dad would buy a CNC Milling machine on time, and he'd do the machining, while mom strapped the part on the mo-ped and sped off to the next supplier in the chain for the process. For instance Dad bid on an Aluminum manifold for cartridge valves and he got the job. He has a program which he wrote for a similar one, and he can edit it for use quickly, and reduce his labor cost, and get it down the line to the slurry deburring operator in 4 hours instead of the 7 hours he bid, so he gets 3 hours pay for being smart. This is in a nutshell what business should be, but it does not happen anymore. Free traders push down prices in order to have the supplier absorb all the costs. They expect him to carry their parts in stock, which means the supplier has all ready paid for the material and labor, allowing the Free trader to invest his money and make profit while the supplier has problems getting working capital, causing him to go belly up. Ichan said it is the purpose of business today to shoot the walking wounded. What he didn't say is he and the free traders wounded them. But remember Diamin says they are doing god's work, Lucifer.

I always thought Benedict had some strong socialist tendencies.... He even praised Marx one day.
In fact inequality is in the order of things. God created a hierarchical universe. Benedict should complain with Him.

I often wonder why it is an absolute. Either you're for Capitalism with all that means, or you're for Socialism, with all that means. Is there no middle or third way ?

Because ideology admits no compromise.  That's something I've learned here...

This is a case in point.  Do you see how His Holiness's concerns about "unregulated capitalism" immediately becomes a "strong socialist tendency?"

Well, Pilgrim, that's what bothers me. The conservative ideology or progressive ideology have supplanted Catholicism it appears.
