About the (apparently) inner conflict of the Roman Catholic Church (excerpts)

In those parts of the writing that are not published here and now, the author compares the conservative hierarchy to the one-party system while starting out from the facts of clashes between the conservative and reform forces of the Catholic Church. He analyses the role played by Pope John Paul 2nd and the significance of the pope's recent anticapi-talist remarks. The author recognizes their value but ultimately terms the wording as having an apologetic role and expresses his hope that despite the present, rather conservative wave, the Church will reach a radical standpoint advocating the interests of the poor and the oppressed.
