Pope Francis was asked recently by Spain’s El Pais if he was worried about the rise of populism (in the United States). He cautioned that people should not repeat the mistakes of the 1930′s, when people turned to “saviours” like Adolf Hitler, elected to resolve economic and political crises and give back a proud identity to Germany. “Hitler did not steal power”, he said, “but was elected by his people and then he destroyed his people”
