The comparison with Communism is striking. An original idea (but better than Karl's) converted into an oligarchy if not kraterocracy with no democracy.
Sure needs a big overhaul.

Thank you for this educational perspective on early Chritianity, the monarchical hierarchy and their Church politics.

Certainly congregational voices lead the way with their Jesus-infused values of compassion, inclusion and justice in the recent community debates around same sex marriage and assisted dying. Most bishops were left in the wake spluttering rule-based, 15th century counter-reformation requirements after consulting their well-thumbed Catholic Emclopedias.
Their casuistry comes across not only as bit odd. It is sometimes quite cold too.
