Pope Francis: All Talk and No Game

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. One of the oldest institutions in the world, notorious for it’s resistance to change, isn’t changing. Salon has a good piece on it, mentioning that while he does talk a good talk, the actual policy of the Vatican is the same as before. I did have a little hope. I swear between Obama, the Arab Spring, and now Pope Francis, I keep getting all excited for, you know, change. It never seems to happen. Change is incremental and generally unfocused by policymakers. How do we enact change? How can we actually make the world a better place?

Activism? Becoming politicians and incrementally changing the country? Becoming a Supreme Court justice? Sounds unlikely.

Man I don’t know.
