The Pope Just Called Private Property a 'Secondary Right.' He Couldn't Be More Wrong

Since becoming the head of the Catholic Church in 2013, Pope Francis has not shied away from the political domain.

On Sunday, the religious leader used the COVID-19 pandemic to renew his criticisms of free-market capitalism.

"The fragility of world systems in the face of the pandemic has demonstrated that not everything can be resolved by market freedom," Francis wrote in part of a lengthy religious text. "To care for the world in which we live means to care for ourselves. Yet we need to think of ourselves more and more as a single family dwelling in a common home. Such care does not interest those economic powers that demand quick profits."

"In today's world, many forms of injustice persist, fed by… a profit-based economic model that does not hesitate to exploit, discard and even kill human beings," Francis lamented.
