Pope Francis Calls for “Copernican Revolution” of Economy in the Wake of COVID-19 Pandemic

Yikes.

Pope Francis has urged world governments to transform their economic systems to be more equitable and just, calling what he envisions a “Copernican revolution.”

There is need for a kind of new Copernican revolution that can put the economy at the service of men and women, not vice versa,” the pope said, referring to the paradigm shift that occurred in the 16th century when Nicolaus Copernicus posited that the universe was heliocentric, not geocentric.

This new economy would be “one that brings life not death, one that is inclusive and not exclusive, humane and not dehumanizing, one that cares for the environment and does not despoil it.”

The pope made these remarks in his annual address at the Apostolic Palace to ambassadors accredited to the Holy See. He not only spoke about the economy, but a wide range of issues. The most serious issue we face, he said, is a “general anthropological crisis” of human relationships.

I am convinced that fraternity is the true cure for the pandemic and the many evils that have affected us. Along with vaccines, fraternity and hope are, as it were, the medicine we need in today’s world,” the pope said.

Pope Francis’ traditional gathering with the ambassadors was originally scheduled for January 25 but had to be pushed back two weeks because of recent sciatica nerve pain that limited his ability to stand and walk.

Because he’s the chief pastor of the Church and the spiritual authority of over a billion Christians, Pope Francis often has to speak in general principles and employ vague language. But it’s hard to imagine how he’s not envisioning a quasi-socialist world order.

Cheryl Chumley, writing an op-ed in the Washington Times, is thus not wrong when she says that the pope’s words, though not outright endorsing socialism, will nonetheless “quietly, softly, soothingly guide his followers down a path of acceptance for a new economic model that has zero to do with the free market, zilch to do with American capitalism.”

AMERICA IS BACK BABY!

You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).

This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.

On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.

On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.

Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
