Die Stuhl-Petrifizierung des Elends

Papst Franziskus bemerkte vor wenigen Tagen in einem Interview:

As we speak there is a refugee crisis. How are you experiencing this Situation?

It is the tip of an iceberg. These poor people are fleeing war, hunger, but that is the tip of the iceberg. Because underneath that is the cause; and the cause is a bad and unjust socioeconomic system, in everything, in the world – speaking of the environmental problem –, in the socioeconomic society, in politics, the person always has to be in the centre. That is the dominant economic system nowadays, it has removed the person from the centre, placing the god money in its place, the idol of fashion. There are statistics, I don’t remember precisely, (I might have this wrong), but that 17% of the world’s population has 80% of the wealth.

And this exploitation of the third world countries, in the medium run, brings these consequences: All these people who now wish to come to Europe…

And the same thing happens in the big cities. Why do the slums appear in the big cities?

It’s the same criteria…

The same. These are people who came from the countryside, because it has been deforested, because of monoculture. They don’t have work, so they go to the big cities.

Leider ist an den Äußerungen Seiner Heiligkeit soviel falsch, daß man kaum weiß, wo man anfangen soll. Die Ökologismus sei vermerkt, aber hier beiseite gelassen. Schlimmer noch ist der Antikapitalismus: Denn das Einzige, was den Menschen in der Dritten Welt helfen kann, ist mehr Kapitalismus. Hören Sie noch einmal Dambisa Moyo zum Thema.
