Why don't you ask Vatican to implement? You Pope is a big dictator.


I like your pope analogy, let's look at what it tells us.

Not too many centuries ago the Pope had a great deal of control over many European nation states.
He told the Spanish and the Portuguese where they could colonise.
An earlier pope allowed the English to control Ireland.
The pope held sway over kings and queens in Europe.

Finally the power of the pope was confined to areas of a spiritual nature and the nation states of Europe went their own way politically.
When will the same apply to the heirs to the "papacy" constructed by the great helmsman ?

Emu,

Let's not forget: he was given his own country large enough to contain the clerical offices to ensure that he was not under political pressure by Italy or anyone else.
