Guest post today. It just as well could have been two, very long ones. So consider yourselves lucky, dear readers. But I will not post anything tomorrow, so consider this weekend reading.
First, over at the One Peter Five blog, a post written by Hilary White appears. (see here) This post is a very good analysis of what is waiting for the Catholic Church in the not too distant future. I agree with most of what is written and therefore highly recommend that you read it. Consider it an introduction to the post below.
One observation though. What is typical in posts of this nature and this one as well, is that they give the impression that the future is STATIC. One can say: pre-DETERMINED. And you all know what this humble blogger thinks about DETERMINISM! (see here) But I digress… Specifically, these types of posts depict a future that is already set in stone to a large extent, one can say.
The outcome is already DETERMINED, was the thought that ran through my mind as I was reading it.
Yet, your humble blogger knows that DETERMINISM is a false “religion” and that the ability of God’s creation for rational, abstract thought combined with their God given FREE WILL introduces a lot of VOLITILITY into any pseudo-DETERMINISTIC model.
The VOLITITLITY in turn, is something that can be understood and dare I say, even measured. The manner in which God’s children, who incidentally were created in His image, can come to understand the manner in which this VOLITILITY will assert itself. And this VOLITILITY MUST assert itself according to the “non-material laws and processes that regulate the visibilium omnium (e.g. the laws of physics – classical mechanics and quantum mechanics, laws of mathematics, rules of logic, etc.)”, or what we call the et Invisibilium. (see here)
If not, trash-heap of history.
Yet Our Lord told us that the gates of hell shall not prevail. So in that sense, this pre-DETERMINED RESULT is REAL.
So what we have in the et Invisibilium is nothing more than a statement of what is defined as UNIVERSAL (existent or operative everywhere or under all conditions). Therefore, if we understand the UNIVERSAL underlying mechanisms at work in any given OBJECTIVE PROCESS, we will be able to better predict that PROCESS going forward.
But that is not all. If we can then go and disseminate that information as to the UNIVERSAL elements at work underpinning said PROCESS, then what we have done is provide OBJECTIVE and VERIFYABLE information upon which other individuals, through the exercise of their FREE WILL, are able to react and further effect that PROCESS going forward.
Making the PROCESS itself DYNAMIC.
To this end, I am re-publishing a post that was written by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com, and appeared at the catholic Zero Hedge website. This post deals with the same PROCESS as that Hilary White’s explains in her above linked post. The only difference is that while Hilary focuses on that sub-set that we call the ECCLESIASTICAL area of human endeavor, Brandon focuses on the POLITICAL and GOVERNANCE part. Yet both are explaining the same PROCESS.
What is of added value in Brandon’s post is that it provides us a historical CONTEXT (contained in the video above) for the PROCESS that is transpiring in the different areas of the Visibilium Omnium.
A couple of observations. The video above is an interview with a Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov. The video is dated 1984.
What is of interest is that the information that Mr. Bezmenov provides is OBJECTIVELY VERIFIABLE. In other words, we have been OBSERVING it for the past 32 years. Or to be more precise, it’s OBJECTIVE CORRECTNESS has withstood the test of time, as they say.
While Mr. Bezmenov’s focus in this video is on the Soviet era propaganda and the destabilization efforts against the United States, notice that the “template” has been developed for a generic country. In other words, it can be applied to any organized state (think The Vatican) that the Soviet Union saw as its threat. Or rather to the underlying principles that serve as the foundation to that state.
Next, it would appear that the Soviet Union tapped into, and took advantage of a wider PHENOMENON, or what Mr. Bezmenov called the International Communist Conspiracy. Yet individuals who comprised this Conspiracy were considered useful idiots by the KGB. The people who the KGB really wanted to recruit were not the useful idiots, but rather those that are described as follows:
Cynical egocentric people, who can look into your eyes with angelic expression and tell you a lie. These are the most recruit-able people. People who lack moral principles, who are either too greedy or suffer from self importance. They feel that they matter a lot. These are the people who the KGB wanted very much to recruit.
Does this fit the psychological profile of any one that we deal with on this blog?
But by far the greatest value of this video is in that it provides us with an understanding this present-day PROCESS. The reason being, the present-day PROCESS is nothing more than the extention of the same PROCESS that Mr. Bezmenov explained in this 1984 video.
And what was the ROOT COMPONANT of this KGB instigated “DEMORALIZATION PROCESS”? Here is how Mr. Bezmenov explains it (begins at the 5:00 mark):
What it basically means (DEMORALIZATION PROCESS) is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent, that despite their abundance of information, no one is able to come to any sensible conclusions, in the interest of defending themselves, their family, their community and their country. It’s a great brain washing process which goes very slow and is devided into 4 basic stages. The first one being DEMORALIZATION, it takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years that it requires to educate one generation of students, in the country of your enemy. (…)
I will stop here. What is important to understand at this point is that the KGB had actually identified a UNIVERSAL principle of human behavior. They then took this UNIVERSAL principle and applied it in their PROPOGANDA efforts against their targeted states.
What is of greater importance to understand here though, is that the real aim of this Soviet PROPOGANDA effort was OBJECTIVE REALITY itself. At its ROOT, the entire purpose of this vast organization, i.e. the KGB was to simply create enough confusion in the minds of the citizens of the targeted state, that would bring them to the point were those citizens could not think RATIONALLY.
And the first thought that came to my mind when I was listening to this fragment of the video above is: Francis v. the 4 Cardinals.
To be more specific, what we are seeing in this confrontation is nothing more than a demoralized bishop of Rome and his court, who is/are so confused that even with an abundance of information, he/they can’t or are not able to come to any sensible conclusions, in the interest of defending themselves, their
family followers, their community and their country His Church.
So to sum up the above, it would appear that the “spirit” of Vatican II, whether those promoting “the spirit” were conscious of this or not, is nothing more than the product of this above described DEMORALIZATION PROCESS.
And the promoter’s argumentation bears this out. (see here)
And now to the second post.
Below is the Brandon Smith post. I suggest you dear reader superimpose “Catholic Church” onto “America” and “conservative/liberal” onto “right/left”. Although the situation in the post is not totally analogous to that in the Catholic Church, it is worth reading to understand the general trends and the post provides a good idea about how to counter the enemy’s efforts. (see here)
I will write about this counter-offensive in a follow-up post.
The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible
You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!
I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive.
With Donald Trump on the way to the White House in January, along with a Republican majority in Congress and the Senate, leftists long accustomed to dominating the public narrative through the mainstream media have found themselves without leverage. Now, they must resort to ankle biting with efforts like the “fake news” meme, which is designed to undermine the alternative media through ad hominem. Obviously this will fail. It is far too late for the mainstream media to gain back any social capital, and they will have to adapt or die out.
With this avenue closing for the left, the next stage will be direct asymmetrics; they will use subversion at a more localized level; working to provoke “marginalized” groups into taking extreme action in order to illicit a negative and totalitarian response from conservatives.
I am rather well versed on the history of communist insurgencies, and one simple reality that consistently stands out to me is that wherever communist movements exist, war follows. They may claim to be peaceful in their aims and methods, they may claim to want what is best for society as a whole, but when these movements are denied access to social evolution, they almost always revert to violent means. The primary reason for this, I believe, is that they really do assume at their very core that their ideal is the ONLY ideal.
They think they are heroes, awakened to a world view that the rest of us are incapable of comprehending. In their minds, anyone seeking to obstruct them is either dangerously ignorant or a fascist hellbent on sabotaging humanity’s “natural progression” into the leftist utopia. Therefore any and all actions are justified on their part. They are fighting “evil.” And, of course, conservatives like you and I are the physical manifestations of that evil. We are the super-villains that must be destroyed at all costs in the leftist fantasy world.
As I noted in my last article, Order Out Of chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost, regressives in the form of social justice warriors are currently more cute in their provocations than dangerous, but this is only an early stage of their movement. When these people do not get what they want, when they realize that propaganda methods are not effective, they will inevitably turn toward militancy and aggressive mob action. This is the problem with zealots: they are infinitely capable of moral relativity. They are monsters in people suits just waiting to be unleashed, but made even more dangerous by their self-image as guardians.
There is nothing worse than a psychopath with a desperate desire to nurture you.
After my last article, some readers responded that they understood my basic premise — that the left versus right dynamic is being instigated by global elites, and that this could result in both sides moving to opposing extremes of the political spectrum; communism versus fascism. That said, they also wanted to know what I thought should be done about the left in particular? Sure, the elites are the root cause of the threat, but what about all the crazed leftists the elites hide behind and exploit? Don’t we have to deal with them at some point as well?
I would say yes, though our reaction must be measured or we risk falling into the paradigm trap the elites have constructed for us.
So, here is the reality — when a movement like the social justice cult reverts to zealotry, there is nothing that can be done to persuade them otherwise. Some will leave the movement behind, but the majority will refuse to acknowledge that their ideology has failed to sway the masses, and that this might be due to the fact that their ideology is highly flawed. They will seek instead to FORCE us into compliance. This ensures that a violent conflict will eventually arise.
