The Vatican and the Occupy Movement

The Vatican and the Occupy Movement, PDF format

In 2009 I published an article entitled The Pope of Rome Calls for a World Government.[1]  To properly understand the present article, it would be useful to read that earlier article again, for the information covered there has direct reference to what is going to be said here.  That article was an analysis of a major encyclical (papal treatise) published by the Roman pope, Benedict XVI, in June 2009.

  The encyclical was called Caritas in Veritate (“Love in Truth”).  In it, Benedict called for internationally regulated globalisation, and a powerful world government in the form of the United Nations.  As I said in my article, the Papacy wants to use the UN to advance its own agenda for world government and world domination.  Despite the Vatican’s own reservations about, and disagreements with, various aspects of UN policy, it nevertheless still seeks to use the UN to further its own objectives in the world.

  The Vatican is fully supportive of the international Communist call for a New World Economic Order, and this encyclical was a ringing endorsement of that call.  It was brim-full of classic Communist statements and buzz-words.  And in it, Benedict called for a “profoundly new way” of organising global finance and business.  He actually called for the establishment of “a true world political authority” to oversee the world economy and work for the “common good”!

  Which brings me to the Vatican’s latest call, and following this, how it all ties in with the rapidly-expanding “Occupy Wall Street” movement, which is causing such a stir in the United States and spreading worldwide.  In late October, the Vatican called for a “global public authority” and a central world bank to reign over the financial affairs of the world in the wake of the (very engineered) global economic collapse!  Beyond all doubt, this latest call simply builds on the papal encyclical of 2009.  It is merely the next stage in the development of the Vatican’s long-term plans for controlling the world.

  Let’s then look into all this more closely:

  This latest Vatican document is called Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority.  It was released by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.  Its timing was deliberate, with the entire world extremely nervous and anxious about the global economic crisis.  And as correctly pointed out by CNBC, it “should be music to the ears of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.”[2]  More about “Occupy Wall Street” later.  But first let’s dissect parts of this document.

  It condemned what it called “the idolatry of the market”.  Put simply, it condemned outright Capitalism, not only in this statement but in another, where it spoke of the “inequalities and distortions of capitalistic development”.  Yes, the document also mentioned how “Marxist communism” had failed by 1991. But this simply means Rome does not accept all aspects of Marxism.  It has, over the decades, actually created its very own brand of Communism: what we could call a “Catholic Communism” as opposed to a merely “Marxist Communism.”[3]

  Continuing in this anti-Capitalist vein, the document stated that the present global economic crisis “has revealed behaviors like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale”.  Nice-sounding Communistic phraseology.  It also threatened that there would be severe worldwide problems and the collapse of governments if no action was taken: “If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid.”
