Trendy Popeish Globalism By Peter West
The globalist anti-Western Pope has entered the Us presidential debates, with an implicit attack upon Trump’s soft nationalist policies, such as building a wall to protect the US from illegal alien invaders. The Pope does not want any walls for the West, but he is silent about whether China should allow itself to be invaded, and he has never commented about the wall around Vatican City.
“Pope Francis has called on Christians to break down walls and embrace a love without borders in a new encyclical letter released on Sunday. “We achieve fulfilment when we break down walls,” wrote the pope, who ironically rules the world’s only completely walled-in sovereign territory, the Vatican City State. The pope referred to walls a remarkable 14 times in his letter titled Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All), insisting that the Church wants “to build bridges, to break down walls, to sow seeds of reconciliation.” “Each one of us is called to be an artisan of peace,” Francis said, “by uniting and not dividing, by extinguishing hatred and not holding on to it, by opening paths of dialogue and not by constructing new walls.” The pope said that his new letter was inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi who lived in a world “bristling with watchtowers and defensive walls” where “cities were a theatre of brutal wars between powerful families, even as poverty was spreading through the countryside.” Building walls reveals a deep-seated fear of others and fear of the unknown, the pontiff wrote, and a desire for security in one’s own little world. “There is a kind of ‘local’ narcissism unrelated to a healthy love of one’s own people and culture,” Francis said. “It is born of a certain insecurity and fear of the other that leads to rejection and the desire to erect walls for self-defence.”
“Today too, outside the ancient town walls lies the abyss, the territory of the unknown, the wilderness,” he wrote. “Whatever comes from there cannot be trusted, for it is unknown, unfamiliar, not part of the village. It is the territory of the ‘barbarian,’ from whom we must defend ourselves at all costs.” “As a result, new walls are erected for self-preservation, the outside world ceases to exist and leaves only ‘my’ world, to the point that others, no longer considered human beings possessed of an inalienable dignity, become only ‘them,’” he said. This in turn yields to “the temptation to build a culture of walls, to raise walls, walls in the heart, walls on the land, in order to prevent this encounter with other cultures, with other people,” he added. “And those who raise walls will end up as slaves within the very walls they have built. They are left without horizons, for they lack this interchange with others.” “If only we might rediscover once for all that we need one another, and that in this way our human family can experience a rebirth, with all its faces, all its hands and all its voices, beyond the walls that we have erected,” he wrote. The massive, 40-foot high walls surrounding Vatican City State were built by an earlier pope, Leo IV, after Islamic Saracen troops sacked Old St. Peter’s Basilica in 846 AD.”
Well, let us see this Pope tear down the Vatican walls, and share the countless billions in wealth accumulated over the ages by the Catholic Church, well documented in this classic book, The Vatican Billions:
All Western countries, the Pope says, trying to top his absurdities, belong to foreigners. Does Africa belong to Asia then?
“Pope Francis has proposed “a different way of understanding relations and exchanges between countries” that minimizes the idea of citizenship in a particular nation and emphasizes the common humanity of all people.
In a new encyclical letter titled Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All), the pope asserts that the common destination of the earth’s goods “requires that this principle also be applied to nations, their territories and their resources.”
“Seen from the standpoint not only of the legitimacy of private property and the rights of its citizens, but also of the first principle of the common destination of goods,” the pontiff writes, “we can then say that each country also belongs to the foreigner, inasmuch as a territory’s goods must not be denied to a needy person coming from elsewhere.” “If every human being possesses an inalienable dignity, if all people are my brothers and sisters, and if the world truly belongs to everyone,” he writes, “then it matters little whether my neighbour was born in my country or elsewhere.” “My own country also shares responsibility for his or her development, although it can fulfil that responsibility in a variety of ways,” he adds. “It can offer a generous welcome to those in urgent need, or work to improve living conditions in their native lands by refusing to exploit those countries or to drain them of natural resources, backing corrupt systems that hinder the dignified development of their peoples.”
Justice among nations, the pontiff suggests, requires assistance to satisfy the “right to progress” of peoples outside one’s own country, and perhaps even the pardoning of international debt. “Indeed, justice requires recognizing and respecting not only the rights of individuals, but also social rights and the rights of peoples,” Francis writes. “This means finding a way to ensure the fundamental right of peoples to subsistence and progress, a right which is at times severely restricted by the pressure created by foreign debt.” “In many instances, debt repayment not only fails to promote development but gravely limits and conditions it,” he states. “While respecting the principle that all legitimately acquired debt must be repaid, the way in which many poor countries fulfil this obligation should not end up compromising their very existence and growth.” “Certainly, all this calls for an alternative way of thinking,” the pope acknowledges. “Without an attempt to enter into that way of thinking, what I am saying here will sound wildly unrealistic.” “On the other hand, if we accept the great principle that there are rights born of our inalienable human dignity, we can rise to the challenge of envisaging a new humanity,” he proposes. “We can aspire to a world that provides land, housing and work for all.”
OK, let us see that principle applied to China with respect to Africa, inshallah.
“Pope Francis has reiterated his call for a more welcoming attitude toward migrants, insisting everyone has the right to “dream of a better future.” “Certain populist political regimes, as well as certain liberal economic approaches, maintain that an influx of migrants is to be prevented at all cost,” the pope laments in a new encyclical letter titled Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All), meaning that “great numbers of lives are at stake.” “I realize that some people are hesitant and fearful with regard to migrants,” the pontiff declares. “I consider this part of our natural instinct of self-defence.” “I ask everyone to move beyond those primal reactions because there is a problem when doubts and fears condition our way of thinking and acting to the point of making us intolerant, closed and perhaps even – without realizing it – racist,” he warns. “In this way, fear deprives us of the desire and the ability to encounter the other.” In some host countries, “migration causes fear and alarm, often fomented and exploited for political purposes,” he states. “This can lead to a xenophobic mentality, as people close in on themselves, and it needs to be addressed decisively.” “Many migrants have fled from war, persecution and natural catastrophes,” he notes. “Others, rightly, are seeking opportunities for themselves and their families. They dream of a better future and they want to create the conditions for achieving it.”
“Unscrupulous traffickers, frequently linked to drug cartels or arms cartels, exploit the weakness of migrants, who too often experience violence, trafficking, psychological and physical abuse and untold sufferings on their journey,” he adds. “Migrations, more than ever before, will play a pivotal role in the future of our world,” he declares. The pope also insists on the right of people to travel to places where they can find “personal fulfilment” as well as the need to grant full citizenship to long-term residents. We are obliged “to respect the right of all individuals to find a place that meets their basic needs and those of their families, and where they can find personal fulfilment,” he writes. “For those who are not recent arrivals and already participate in the fabric of society, it is important to apply the concept of ‘citizenship,’ which is based on the equality of rights and duties, under which all enjoy justice,” he declares. “It is therefore crucial to establish in our societies the concept of full citizenship and to reject the discriminatory use of the term minorities, which engenders feelings of isolation and inferiority.”
The real problem with this dopey, Popey, diatribe is that the rights of the local residents just get crushed by the frantic desire of the invaders to maximise their welfare. One does not merely argue against such deadly doctrines, but actively organise to fight politically against them, as all patriots must do.
