It would have been more creative for Pope Francis to say~”hey rich guys~employ some poor guys.”

For now, I’ll say this–I do think that Papa Francis took a look at his position and thought something like this~~”I am 77 years old, I have one lung, I am not well~~what do I want to do with the years I have left~~get all involved in the banking scandal at Vatican Bank~~or the problem with the homosexual priests~~or do I want to go out among the people and live as Jesus lived~~after all the Pope represents Jesus here on earth~~I have decided to go among the poor and let the enormous bureaucracy take care of the PR problems”~~this is how I think his mind works~~I think Pope recognizes that he~~like the American President and the English Crown as we’ve discussed in our notes, Karen, ~~are symbols~~Pope is supposed to be a symbol of Jesus on earth.  Queen a symbol of England. Our President a symbol of America.

That’s where it gets tough~~the Church has had right-wing and left-wing Popes but all of them have written notes of this sort reminding the rich to care for the poor, reminding the rich that the poor have a right to form guilds and unions and reminding the rich of their Christian charitable obligations~~it is Pope’s duty to be a champion of the poor.
And, this has always been tough sledding~~in Europe the unions are controlled by the communists~~whereas in America the unions are controlled by the Mafia~~so the Popes have always had a difficult time getting out their message of the need for Christian charity without appearing to be favoring communists or Mafia.
As in the earlier question~~I would caution Pope Francis to advocate for the employment of the poor at good jobs and train them to be independent rather than appearing to get tied up in some tired social leveling gambit~~now that would have been creative for Pope to say~~”hey rich guys~~employ some poor guys.”
That said~~it remains to be seen how he develops~~but remember this~~he was elected King by his fellow Princes of the Church and to that extent he is representative of the majority point of view at Rome~~or else he would not have got into office.

The rich man ought not be taxed~~he ought be compelled to employ the poor man~~

~~The principal need in America today is~~financial and industrial De-Globalization~~to facilitate the promotion of the possibility for the average man to get and keep a good job with good benefits paid by the employer~~as was done not very long ago.~~

~~In sunshine and in shadow~~I hold tight to the Republican view of time and money~~I write night and day~~yet~~while impecunious~~I am vastly overpaid~~in that taking pay to do what I love is unfair~~to my employer~~in a fair system~~under such circumstances~~I should pay him~~not he me~~I am far, far too old a man to be sexually confused~~praise Jesus~~but I am yet young enough to be politically confused~~is anyone not~~in an absolute sense~~I am a Catholic Royalist~~in a practical sense~~I am a Classical Liberal~~a Gaullist~~a Bonapartist~~an American Nationalist  Republican~~in either sense~~my head is soon for the chopping block~~to hasten my interlude with Madame La Guillotine~~I write without fear~and without favor of~any man~~

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
