So what he’s exactly saying is, anyone dedicating his/her life (leaders or even just cogs in the wheel) to punish the very people whose existence actually benefits society (supporting brute state force in stealing large chunks of their livelihood and handing it over to others of their choosing), as well as bone crushing top-down authoritative one party rule, but are nice to their own families and kindred spirits, and who knows even friendly in town, are deep down good people.
Sorry, but not in my book, they’re deeply misguided evil doers, theft is never to be applauded as a ‘kindness’, just because the state is doing it. Theft is theft, force is the exact opposite of free choice. You would think that a pontiff would understand the difference.

Some of the passages in the “Evangelii Gaudium” attracted the criticism of ultraconservatives in the USA. As a Pope, what does it feel like to be called a “Marxist”?
“The Marxist ideology is wrong. But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended.”
