Pope Francis in his Christmas message on Friday said political and business leaders must not allow market forces and patent laws to take priority over making Covid 19 vaccines available to all, condemning nationalism and “the virus of radical individualism”.

In a sign of the times, Francis delivered his traditional “Urbi et Orbi” (to the city and the world) message virtually from a lectern inside the Vatican instead of from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica before tens of thousands.

The pandemic and its social and economic effects dominated the message, in which Francis called for global unity and help for nations suffering from conflicts and humanitarian crises.

“At this moment in history, marked by the ecological crisis and grave economic and social imbalances only worsened by the coronavirus pandemic, it is all the more important for us to acknowledge one another as brothers and sisters,” he said.

Stressing that health is an international issue, he appeared to criticise so-called ‘vaccine nationalism’, which U.N. officials fear will worsen the pandemic if poor nations receive the vaccine last.

“I beg everyone, heads of state, companies and international organisations to promote cooperation and not competition, to find a solution for everyone – vaccines for all – especially for the most vulnerable and needy in all areas of the planet,” he said.

“The most vulnerable and needy must be first,” he said, in the Vatican’s Hall of the Benedictions, with only about 50 Vatican staff wearing masks sitting along the long walls.

“RADICAL INDIVIDUALISM”

“We can’t put ourselves before others, putting market forces and patent laws before the laws of love and the health of humanity,” he said. “We cannot let closed nationalisms block us from living like the true human family that we are.”

What’s so wrong being a Radical Individualist when you know the truth? Or if you just freaking cant help being one? God bless you Pope. I see what you are doing.

If it were a vaccine we could have a conversation.
This is anything and everything but what they say it is.
Dr Fucai was injected (with saline, no doubt) in his left arm. When questioned later about any resulting discomfort, he rubbed his right shoulder where he said it had been ‘a little sore’ the morning after.
They have already admitted that it will not prevent contraction of the disease.
They really care about us and we should follow all government instructions and guidelines at all times.

Radical individualism is the EXACT opposite of Collectivism. I’m not a conservative, nor an anarchist, but consider myself a minarchist, I am opposed to to tyranny of overreaching government and would prefer a very limited form of government.
incidentally, it was a group of radical individualists that Founded the U.S.A.
