For quite some time the Vatican has been an outspoken activists for installing world wide government and a singular global financial and monetary system to oversee, manage and reform the growing global financial crisis.
The Vatican has posted their thoughts for humanity to reflect upon in a document called, ‘Towards Reforming The International Financial And Monetary Systems In The Context Of Global Public Authority.’
PONTIFICAL COUNCIL FOR JUSTICE AND PEACE
THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL AND MONETARY SYSTEMS
IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBAL PUBLIC AUTHORITY
The document states, “At every stage of the crisis, one might discover particular technical errors intertwined with certain ethical orientations.”
Published years ago under Pope Benedict XVI, it continues by asking and then concluding:
“What has driven the world in such a problematic direction for its economy and also for peace?
First and foremost, an economic liberalism that spurns rules and controls. Economic liberalism is a theoretical system of thought, a form of “economic apriorism”. It purports to derive the laws for how markets function from theory, these being laws of capitalistic development, but it exaggerates certain aspects of markets and downplays or ignores others.”
In section 3, “An Authority Over Globalization,” while underscoring a degree of urgency in implementation, it says:
“Consistent with the spirit of Pacem in Terris, Benedict XVI himself expressed the need to create a world political authority. This seems obvious if we consider the fact that the agenda of questions to be dealt with globally is becoming ever longer. Think, for example, of peace and security; disarmament and arms control; promotion and protection of fundamental human rights; management of the economy and development policies; management of migratory flows and food security; and protection of the environment. In all these areas, the growing interdependence between States and regions of the world becomes more and more obvious as well as the need for answers that are not just sectorial and isolated, but systematic and integrated, rich in solidarity and subsidiarity and geared to the universal common good.”
It then calls for a non-coerced process of installing this new political global authority (while consistently capitalizing the ‘A’ in the word ‘Authority’) on top of pre-existing governing authorities:
“The establishment of a world political Authority should be preceded by a preliminary phase of consultation from which a legitimated institution will emerge that is in a position to be an effective guide and, at the same time, can allow each country to express and pursue its own particular good.”
In addition to this, it calls for a financial transaction tax.
That is the challenge – setting up another human layer of authority that can be trusted with everyone’s money while charging banking fees! It seems like the trendy thing to do in our days: bring in a disaster to relieve us of the current disaster.
I think individual churches and religious congregations everywhere should be taxed before the will and wishes of the Vatican are seriously considered at all if ever considering their long and dubious history of 1700 years once Constantine made The Church the official religion of the Roman Empire. For many of those, The Church was the tax collector for Rome at ceremonies such as baby baptisms, weddings and funerals.
