Pope Francis: Powerful People Don’t Want Peace Because They Profit from War


Francis responded by saying the question should really be, “Why do many powerful people not want peace?” 
“Because they live off war — the arms industry,” he said. “Some powerful people make their living with the production of arms and sell them to one country for them to use against another country … It’s the industry of death, the greed that harms us all, the desire to have more money.” 
“When we see that everything revolves around money,” the Pope continued, “the economic system revolves around money and not around the person, men and women, but money — so much is sacrificed and war is waged in order to defend the money.
