Cardinal Rodríguez criticizes free-market Libertarian ideologies

   Cardinal Rodríguez, Papal advisor, had some strong words on Tuesday for capitalists and believers in classical liberalism.


"Those who criticize the pope do not know the rest of the world"
Libertarian ideologies, Rodríguez said, have a "limited perspective of the reality, according to particular interests."
"Libertarianism has ... an anthropology that is reduced to individualism, cutting the social dimension that is also part of the constitution of the human being," he said. "It is impoverishing humanity. Because the rest of the people are like objects I can use, but they're not really persons to relate with."

   But at least he doesn't think Libertarians are bad people, just misguided.

Court holds sign censorship unconstitutional.

Whose sign is it anyway?

   It seems that when a law is "not narrowly drawn to satisfy a compelling government interest,"you often have grounds to have it declared unconstitutional when it's abused.
