NOTR - Communism, Social Justice & Rome - 8.15.16


Chris discusses some of the history of Social Justice and Communism dating back to the 19th century, when the ideas of Karl Marx first emerged.  But was there more to Marxism than meets the eye?  It is worth noting that the term "social justice" was first coined by a Jesuit priest in 1843 -- five years before Marx published the Communist Manifesto (1848).  Marx himself had been educated at a Jesuit high school.  In the twentieth century, the concept of social justice was promoted by Pius XI, the same pope that supported Mussolini, and whose pontificate signed a Concordat with Hitler's Germany in 1933.
