Can the new Pope, Francis of Argentina, the first non-Latin pope in 1,300 years, be a person of substantial influence in the world?
The new Pope of the Catholic Church failed to attend a Gala Concert created in his honor stating: “...bishops should be "close to the people" and not have "the mentality of a prince ..”
Pope Francis stated that: “...financial speculation and corruption were keeping millions of people in hunger and the financial crisis could not be used as an alibi for failing to to help the poor...”
At a United Nations Food conference in Rome, the Pope stated: “..."It is a well-known fact that current levels of production are sufficient, yet millions of people are still suffering and dying of starvation. This is truly scandalous”
The Pope has revealed the idea that there is a dictatorship run economy on our planet and they are forcing ideals of “Consumerism” on the people of the earth in order to increase and focus the wealth of world into fewer and fewer hands.
Many people throughout the planet earth are suffering from starvation and lack of proper food in their daily diet. Resolving this one planetary problem would be sufficient to boost the moral and energy level of the earths population to a level sufficient to deal with the other problems that face us and prevent us from forming together and becoming a Class I or Type I civilization
It is imagined by some, growing political forces on this planet, that in order to accomplish this transfer from a Class zero to Class I civilization we need to do away with the wealthy class of people, replacing them with Experts in their fields of expertise or Technocrats as they are called. It is further imagined that we may have to do away with money altogether. We will need to transform ourselves on a planetary scale. Failure to do so will ultimately lead us to planetary destruction.
Is this new Pope, the inspiration and leadership the planet needs to get us moving in this direction? As we say goodbye to Nelson Mandela, we need to say hello to the new Pope Francis of Argentina.
