A gift of clarity from 1937

It seems that the appropriation by Communist China of a 19th-century capitalism has--in many minds--worked well to obscure the fact that it is still Communist. In 1937, the Vatican published the Encyclical Divini Redemptoris, which articulated most clearly and forcefully the slavery that is life under Communism. Whether or not a person is Catholic (or even anti-Catholic), this document clarifies the humanity-destroying nature of Communism.

Seventy-two years later, and there's still nowhere for the enslavers to hide.

Thanks for directing to this 1937 letter which really should be read all, Catholic or non-Catholic.
