The Socialist Pope’s Idea of Heaven on Earth

Thomas DiLorenzo writes:

The socialist “paradise” of Venezuela, of course, which ranks 186 out of 189 in the World Bank’s index of business friendliness and is labeled as a “debt and hyperinflation hell.”  Everyone there is “equally poor” except for the bloodsucking political elite, something that is true of all socialist countries everywhere.
One wonders why the pope, who is always quick to use gutter language to describe peaceful voluntary exchange in a free market, has never uttered a single word of criticism of the socialist political thugs who have ruined the economies of Argentina (his home country), Brazil, Venezuela, and many Latin American countries.

  1. Probably because they "mean well". Do-gooding thugs always get a pass.
