Pope Francis, from Vatican City, in the context of speaking about the coronavirus pandemic, called on the faithful of the world to rise up, unite and put a stop to all this “personal and collective individualism” that’s going on. Just stop it, he said. Just stop this “individualism” nonsense right now.
Well, we all knew this guy was a closet communist, right? Apparently, he’s coming out of the closet, dropping all pretense of tolerating nations’ sovereignties — nations’ rights to self-rule — and using the coronavirus pandemic as cause to call for an end to all that horrid American-esque individualism that’s been coursing around the world, interrupting globalist elitist plans to control and dominate and subjugate and so forth.
Just stop it, the pope says. Enough is enough.
“The pandemic,” Francis said, The Associated Press reported, “has revealed how vulnerable and interconnected we all are. … [It’s made us] more aware of th spread within our societies of a false, individualistic way of thinking, one that rejects human dignity and relationships, views persons as consumer goods and creates a ‘throw-away’ culture.”
It’s high time we all “overcome our personal and collective individualism,” he went on.
Of course, as with all speeches the pope gives, the communist messaging comes couched in expressions of care and concern for the people. The world of COVID-19, he said, needs followers of the faith who will “look with care at our brothers and sisters, especially those who suffer” and who will see the “human dignity in every person, whatever their race, language or condition.”
