Jesuit Says "Communism Can Remedy No Evil, And Remove No Social Grievance

Well-administered government and wise laws are the means intended by nature for protecting and securing all classes of citizens in their genuine civil rights.
But the principles of communism can remedy no evil, and remove no social grievance.
Nay, to reduce that execrable theory to practice would be to substitute for occasional troubles that can be quieted by authority of just law, manifold evils that could not be endured in any but a savage nation.
