Thank God for the Lepanto Institute!
These insights came from http://www.lepantoinstitute.org/faith-and-life/marxists-in-the-pontifical-academy-of-social-sciences/.
The graphic and the poem, copied from there, are particularly appropriate.
“With disdain I will throw my gauntlet
Full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant
Whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious
Through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force,
I will feel equal to the Creator.”
-Karl Marx, “Human Pride,” 1837
Note the Nopoleonic "hidden hand" secret identifying stance of Freemasonry. Marxism, in all its wild variety, represents (I pray) the final depths of depravity into which Freemasonry inevitably settles.
And yet, after all this time, it appears that more people believe the Marxist lie - that it's aim is to feed the hungry, end poverty, etc. - than see and recognize the truly evil tyrannical aim of Marxism.
Through the multiple lies of Marxism, Evil appears to be winning the cultural argument among men. Marxism is now using Liberty to destroy Liberty. Marxism, from birth, is the sworn, implacable, mortal enemy of Western Civilization in general, and the Catholic Church in particular.
That's why it's so devastating to learn, from Marxists in the P.A.S.S., that the Pontifical Academy of Social Science is loaded down with anti-Catholic, anti-Western Civilization Marxists. Who believe in and push everything from contraception to abortion to eugenics to population control, let alone all the nonsense associated with egalitarianism, let alone all the giant frauds aimed at the "final solution" of one, big, global government, with sole power to fix even the climate, and whatever else is wrong with the world, nature and the universe. Which is to say, man. It is always man, who is always bad.
I didn't know, until this report, that Lenin was the first world leader to legalize contraception. Or that he made it illegal again when he saw it's devastating affects on the Russian population. But he still legalized contraception in "inferior" Communist Satellite countries, like Hungary. It figures that Communism would beat Protestantism to the punch on such an anti-human concept as artificial contraception.
But I did know, and you should too, that every one of worst of the 20th century tyrannical dictators and mass murderers of men had their evil ideological roots in Marxism. No exceptions. Lenin; Franco; Stalin; Hitler, Mussolini; Mao; Kim Il Sung; Castro; Ho Chi Minh; Pol Pot; all of them. Untold millions were murdered outright, and millions more enslaved, with whole cultures destroyed, with beliefs suppressed, and thought itself, fiercely controlled.
What may be worse than all of that is all of the theoretically non-Marxist nations that have incorporated various levels and strains of Socialism into their governmental organization, thinking themselves better for it, and not recognizing the evil social worm. They gradually turn the citizens into dependents, and the government into the one thing they depend upon. The slow, insidious loss of citizen independence and liberty, in exchange for being taken care of by the state, which gathers more and more authoritative power, until it becomes another tyranny. And liberty is no more.
Gone the way of private property.
Perhaps we should not be so surprised that the P.A.S.S. is dominated by Marxist ideologues. So is the current American government. One major American Political Party is completely Marxist, and the other one is not particularly opposed to Marxism. Despite all the direct opposition to Marxism expressed in the American Constitution itself. No wonder the Constitution is violated so regularly and even normally.
So, the "Scientific" advisers of the Pope are predominantly Marxist. And the President of the USA is a Marxist. From my lowly viewpoint, that of a Catholic layman and an American citizen, it may be easier to expunge Marxism from America than from the Church.
Pray that there are some Bishops who still see the Truth, and who see a clearer path back to Truth than we can see. And who will do something about it.
Pray for Pope Francis, that the scales may fall from his eyes and he may know the Truth about Marxism, in all of its variant forms.

Each year I despair as i see yet another crop of useful idiots graduated from our colleges and universities. This trend will change when the corruption of our monetary and financial system creates an implosion and a recognition of the virtues of sound money and Austrian economics. The economic collapse that is coming will be catastrophic, especially for the TTRSPTF5 , the MEJTML14 and the adherents to MPAV16 .

This has been made possible by the gradual decline of our educational standards and by the exclusion of God from the school curriculum. This matter has been further exacerbated by the omission of much of the history of this country from our school books, where omission has not occurred the insertion of outright lies have been included in the textbooks. It is an established fact that much of academia are but MEJTML14 s.

Good article, and I'm glad to hear mention of private property.

See also the popular, however mistaken, movement toward a New World Order, which is to be brought about via the advance of purposely caused Disorder, most especially of the instigated Class Warfare variety.
All of this is precipitated by the hidden, masked and evil advance of Marxist thought, throughout the world. Lies piled upon lies piled upon lies. The general acceptance of a false reality.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

Papal Imperfection Pages.
While Popes enjoy the charism of Infallibility when teaching on faith and morals, as established in the unchanging Deposit of Faith, they remain human, and imperfect, as was Peter and the original Apostles. Popes can err when not teaching on faith and morals, and whenever speaking on matters outside the Deposit of Faith. Two of these areas, particularly troubling in these days, involve Papal favor shown to areas of Godless Marxist ideology, and to the belligerent, invasive, domineering and menacing false religion of Islam.
Will Pope Francis become a Self Deposing Pope? "The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church."--Catholic Encyclopedia
Red Pope Francis and the KGB's Liberation Theology. The Russian KGB developed "Liberation Theology" as another path to Global Revolution. Pope Francis may be a victim of it, or, he may be a perpetrator of it.
Vatican War: Are we witnessing a Papal Melt Down? Pope Francis and the "Spirit Of Vatican II" Cardinals now openly attacking Orthodox Cardinals in the now open-to-public-view Vatican War.
On the Question of Papal Deposability. Asking whether Bishops may actually Depose a Pope for Heresy. Is there even such a thing as Papal Deposability?

Pope Francis and the deepening and worsening Catholic Civil War. Letter asking Pope Francis to step down: Can we really do that? Has it been done before? And is Pope Francis even Catholic?
There is No Hell, because Pope Francis said so. Right? "No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!" --Pope Francis
Popephobia: A Catholic Mental Disorder. (I think I have it.) Popephobia is related to American Obamaphobia, and German Merkelphobia. They are all closely related social disorders. (Could they be a Social WMD?)
The Blind Guides leading Western Civilization toward the pit of Human Barbarity. "Establishment" Party Members and "Establishment" USCCB Bishops are not all Evil Traitors; most of them are Deceived Blind Guides.
Unreason in the Church: Who Is Evangelizing Who? On Unreasoned Gathering with Sinners: Who is Converting Who? Is the Church committing "Merciful" Suicide?
Loosey-Goosey Theology, Wishy-Washy Leadership, and Anything Goes Culture. Pope Francis' Exhortation, Obamunist Cultural Diversity, LGBTQP+ "Sophisticated" Social Engineering, and "Whatever" Global Culture.
Why Did Vatican II Ignore Communism? The veil of mystery over the Council’s omitting any reference to Communism has gradually been lifted
I must oppose the pope on globalism, but not on faith and morals. Recent comments of the pope on globalism, calling for a world political authority, is absolutely the last thing the world needs.
The Smoke of Satan is in the Church in America; has it reached the Vatican too? The Smoke of Satan conceals the true object of the Progressive Agenda.
On the "inevitability" of a Perfect Global Government in a "New World Order". Is this "New World Order" idea divinely inspired, or is it the ongoing work of Satan?

Musings on the deep treachery of the most trusted among us. Deep Treachery: Were they all deceiving us from the beginning, or did they somehow "turn" after being raised to positions of trust?
Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
Cliff Kincaid interviewed Vic on TV about Pope Francis and his Marxism. Addressing Marxist and Islamic ideology creeping into Catholicism.
If Francis is a Communist Pope, how does that affect Catholic Faith and Morals? Exploring the links between Comrade Obama (peace be upon him), Pope Francis and Communist Cuba.
Roman Catholic Marxism? Excuse me? Who is evangelizing whom? Roman Catholic Marxism explores the Politics of Private property v. Collective property (i.e., Marxist Redistributionism.)
On the Vague Anti Authoritarianism of Pope Francis And the Relationship between Vague Anti Authoritarianism in High Places and Moral Depravity in Culture
Do we have an anti-American Pope? A Pro-Obama, Anti-Capitalist, Redistributionist, Utopian, Pro-Illegal Alien, quite consistently Anti-American, Pope Francis?
Delusional Pope Francis, molding world culture into one undefinable hodgepodge. Does the Pope want International Communism, or just a border-less, all inclusive, nonsensical, global non-culture?
The Religion Politics Nexus: If the Religion is not true, Politics become evil. For Martin Luther, Politics drove Religion. For Pope Francis, Religion drives Politics. Or does it?
Pope Francis just said WHAT? Excuse me? Can anyone out there help me reconcile what Pope Francis just said with Catholic Revealed Truth?
