    Come on dude. You know quite well that corporate America greasing the palms of politicians who are responsible for oversight (fettering or regulating) compromise the process and that's what Francis is talking about and guess what, he's right.

    Unfettered capitalism has a definition and you obviously don't know what it is.

    Sawyer, unfettered/ uncontrolled/unregulated! What are you trying to do here. The US has a facade of controlled, fettered, regulated capitalism but is compromised by corruption amongst those that are responsible for such. Both Francis and I understand the definition of unfettered, perhaps you need to look it up.

    You and the pope seem to make up your own communist leaning version of the word. To you it means any capitalism the state does not fully control and manipulate.

    I wouldn't say so considering the whole give unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's thing and the fact that the Lazarus he raised was the richest man in that territory, a huge capitalist.

    I think the church's message has been hijacked.

    He was speaking critically of the entire industrialized world but feel free to keep thinking this is solely about you.

    There are other nations in the world besides the US, but none of them really have "unfettered" capitalism.

    For now at least. China has been catching up pretty fast since they discovered capitalism.
