Pope Francis Calls for Fight against Globalism
– Support for PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory) Confirmed -

I have told you that Pope Francis belongs to the Nathaniel camp and that the Nathaniel camp denounces globalism, while advocating PROUT, which is the opposite of globalism. The Pope’s call for “fight against globalism” supports my assertion. The person who has an enormous influence on the Christianity community has made such remark. I think that he took the initiative ahead of other leading figures in the world who would make the same remarks.

Pope Francis Calls for Fight against Globalism

The Pope has called for fight against globalism.
I have learned about it on a blog “Learn from “Houkoku Sensei.”
The news translated into Japanese was posted on the Japanese site of the Wall Street Journal. I’ll copy and paste it here.

(Original text:
ROME— Pope Francis laid out his first major manifesto since becoming the head of the Catholic Church eight months ago, calling for the church to renew its focus on the poor and launching a salvo against global capitalism.

The document, called "Evangelii Gaudium," or "The Joy of the Gospel," pulls together many of the themes Pope Francis has emphasized since his election, including an exhortation for the church to focus far more on its pastoral mission, while denouncing inequality and social injustice.

Using unusually blunt language, he sharply criticized the market economy. "Just as the commandment 'Thou shalt not kill' sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say 'thou shalt not' to an economy of exclusion and inequality," wrote the pontiff in the 224-page document known as the apostolic exhortation.

"Such an economy kills," wrote Pope Francis, denouncing the current economic system as "unjust at its roots" and one "which defend(s) the absolute autonomy of the marketplace and financial speculation." Such a system, he warned, is creating a "new tyranny," which "unilaterally and relentlessly imposes its own laws and rules."
Tuesday's papal pronouncement is the first major document written entirely by Pope Francis. Although the pope jointly signed the encyclical "The Light of Faith" in July with his predecessor, it was mainly written by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI before he resigned in February.

"Benedict seemed to aim his critique at state and market alike, whereas Francis seems to move the ball considerably in the direction of the idea that the market has far more power—the power to do good for humanity as well as to dehumanize—than the state," said Chad Pecknold, assistant professor of theology at the Catholic University of America in Washington.
The pope urged care for the weakest members of society, particularly the homeless, the addicted, refugees, migrants and elderly. 

In reaching out to such groups, the church must be prepared to be "bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security," he wrote in the document. The pontiff singled out as a major challenge of the contemporary world an economic system that produces vast income inequalities, arguing that it leaves the oppressed and marginalized as "leftovers."

The Pope of the Catholics Church calls for the fight against global capitalism.
This article makes the intellectual deterioration of Japanese intellectuals stand out.
I feel that people called left-wingers are less sensitive to the risk of globalism.

As for left-wing legal scholars, they have almost devastating mentality.
No legal scholars, administrative law scholars, or international law scholars have tried to take a firm stand against globalism yet.

Though it might be about the unknown, they won’t correct undisputed injustice.
I’d rather not say, but I feel an impulse to abuse them verbally: “You thought-stopping left-wingers!”
