Soooo....the pope's message is to equalize income so there won't be as many poor. Or we can give money to the poor on our own, but either way there will still be The Poor. Because other people will always find a way to enrich themselves off The Poor. Unless the gov't regulates the process, taking from the rich before they can give to The Poor. And the gov't can then give to The Poor, but not before the people in charge of the gov't enrich themselves. We had a war on poverty started by Lyndon Johnson. It didn't work because it started a new class of The Professional Poor....those who figured out a way to live off the system forever.
