Pope Francis is warning world leaders of a “viral genocide” if they prioritize the economy over their people. He said that their first test is to “defend the population.”
“I am edified by the reaction of so many people — doctors, nurses, nurses, volunteers, religious, priests — who risk their lives to care for and defend healthy people from contagion,” the pope wrote in a letter.
The letter, which was sent to Buenos Aires judge Roberto Andrés Gallardo and made public by Télam, also said that “some governments have taken exemplary measures with well-marked priorities to defend the population.”
“Governments that face the crisis in this way show the priority of their decisions: people first. And this is important because we all know that defending the people is an economic disaster,” the pope continued, “It would be sad if the opposite were chosen, which would lead to the death of many people, something like a viral genocide.".
“Preparing for the aftermath is important,” Francis added. “There are already some consequences that have to be faced: hunger, especially for people without permanent work (those who do odd jobs, etc.), violence, the appearance of usurers, (the true plague of the social future, dehumanized criminals), etc.”
While I get where the pope is coming from, I do not agree with him. While the people are priority, the economy is extremely important as well. Both must be protected, because the economy directly affects the population.
