Above the President

The relevance of much of what happens in the world today escapes public scrutiny, compliments of the corrupt corporate media. This site aims to help change that. Topics include the UN, oil pipelines, monetary policy and the fate of empires.

Catholic Encyclicals

The economic system, known as corporatism, was based on two papal encyclicals which were supposed to prevent class struggle and supremacy of economism:

Rerum Novarum (Pope Leo XIII, May 15, 1891) - On Capital and Labor
Quadragesimo Anno (Pope Pius XI, May 15, 1931)

Supposedly these encyclicals inspired Salazar when he was ruling Portugal.

The popes who issued them:


Pope Leo XIII
(The Social Pope, the Pope of the Working Man)


Pope Pius XI
