20. Every Pope in my lifetime has denounced unbridled capitalism

The Pope is saying that although we have a right to own property, we don't have a right to be want to own everything to the point that people are lacking basic human needs.

The Catholic church, since Vatican II at least, has always hated the idea of unrestrained greed; that's the liberal side of the Church. They're only socially conservative.
