America and Seductive False ‘Liberty’.

America… “not in any sense Christian”

“….she licensed every form of lust with laws to cleanse the stain o f scandal she has spread.” — Dante, The Inferno, canto V, 57

The fatal mischief in the U.S. Constitution was in the purposeful ambiguity embedded in the Enlightenment concept “liberty”. This is what logically led us all the way to the travesties of Rainbow Wokeism, or to any other abuse of freedom one may wish to read into the concept.

A distortion of “liberty,”(1) far removed from sacred revelation (John:8:32, 2 Cor. 3:17, etc ), and blurring the lines between political and metaphysical meanings, is the crisis of our time.

This was no accident.

And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away [with] all this artificial scaffolding…”  —Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 11 April, 1823; Adams-Jefferson Letters, ed. Lester J. Cappon II, 594

And so it is coming to pass. Coming to pass in the media-darkened minds of very many, spurred on by ideological women and men who prefer impulse, passions and money to reason, regardless of the consequences.

It is not any foreign or domestic enemy which is destroying us today… It is we, ourselves.

The Revolution. 1776, 1789.

Revolutionary French and American ideology together are the recipe, the recipe for this abuse and transvaluation of “liberty” into the unnatural opposite of the liberty given to us by the Lord, Jesus Christ. As Jefferson knew, this “liberty” involved far more than the mere separation of powers in government. This “liberty” was a new way of being. It erodes our true spiritual (and political) liberties and is also the new missionary mandate to change the whole world. Few concepts are more open-ended, or more dangerous.

Many Founding “Fathers” were influenced by Enlightenment Deists and similar philosophies bringing a new and false “light,” a “light” at war with traditional Christianity, the gospel, the traditional family and every traditional moral precept (2). The American Founders generally supported the French Revolution’s overthrow of Christendom and the substitution of a “New World,” New “Philosophy,” even if some had problems with the methods the French employed in “Year One“.

Immanuel Kant: Philosopher of the New Light

Immanuel Kant wrote, “Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage. Nonage is the immature inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) “Have the courage to use your own understanding,” is therefore the motto of the enlightenment.” — Immanuel Kant, What is Enlightenment?(3)

Here Kant lays out the plan, the “daring” emergence from thousands of years of knowledge, knowledge both received and conceived, to begin the project of building a New World from the ground up without the “tutors” and “guardians, i.e., without Christendom’s priests, philosophers and authorities of the past in order to emerge into the wholly New.

As if this New World would not impose its own authoritative tutors and guardians, lest the whole world collapse philosophically into chaos and jungle.

It all happened more slowly on this side of the Atlantic, but to the same ends. The “Novus Ordo Seclorum” which we see etched on every dollar bill today was underway all over the West after 1776. Here was a new, secular, syncretistic and powerful Republican messianism set in ideological opposition to two thousand years of Christianity. The American Founders were more sophisticated in the weaponization of deception than the French. They knew how to wait on “progress” until opposition (all those Presbyterians, Baptists, Catholics and others) slowly weakened.

The licentious Marquis de Sade was one of the prophets. A false rationalism and specious revaluation of “Science” was substituted for genuine hard science, Christian revelation, metaphysics and the teaching of every moral precept. A new gospel was announced to all humankind, where new human “rights” slowly eclipsed traditional human obligations.

Today, a phenomenaly licentious and sophisticated propagandistic media is the Revolution’s handmaid and the main means of indoctrination, though Kant, a Republican, opposed “democracy” – “which, in that era, meant direct democracy – believing that majority rule posed a threat to individual liberty. He stated, “…democracy is, properly speaking, necessarily a despotism, because it establishes an executive power in which “all” decide for or even against one who does not agree; that is, “all”, who are not quite all, decide, and this is a contradiction of the general will with itself and with freedom.” [Wikipedia]

Futurism. A new transhuman view of “progress” was superimposed over all previous certainties and institutions. The Future is now to be heralded in glorious Utopian terms and concepts.  Those who do not play may be sanctioned, targeted, or worse, often at first in subtle ways.

A new liberation theology: in the name of Freedom: “Liberty,” “Equality”.

The Final Revolution

“…the Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.” — Treaty of Tripoli, President George Washington

Evil is Unnatural opposition to the Creator, to His Commandments, to creation’s natural and moral laws; and today the spiritual war extends even to the biological order, natural gender, and family. The new Man today seeks collectively to be God (Gen.3:5), the New lawgiver, the Creator and Parent of all values, now and forever into the Future.

Even pronouns distinguishing biological gender are declared obsolete even in the White House. Nature itself is transvalued in service to the new concepts of “progress” and “evolution”.

This is the “New World,” the new gospel, “Enlightenment,” “Science”… announced first in blood, the blood of the French Revolution and then in the schools. Novus Ordo Seclorum. Young ‘men’ and ‘women’ are expected to kill and die for it because the Revolution worships only itself. Worships itself as “progress” for the whole of humankind.

Today everyone must choose. Not to choose is to choose. Signs and wonders are manifest every day everywhere as the new “Science”  (Scientism) and Magik, more and more, converge into one. 

And if peoples cannot be persuaded of these “truths” nonviolently then they must be persuaded by other means.

The Holy Trinity has been, their philosophers think, toppled, replaced by the Masonic Grand Architect whose mission or building project for the world must in their minds remain incomplete, forever seeking final dominion over the entire world.

We did not create ourselves however. And, despite all variations of its practical atheism, nothingness is nothing, and therefore impotent to “create” anything — but delusions.

And because we sow to the wind we inevitably reap the whirlwind.

“The effect of liberty to individuals is, that people may do what they please: We ought to see what it will please them to do, before we risque congratulations, which may be soon turned into complaints”. —Edmund Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France, 1790

True “Liberty”. Leo XIII.

“Those who are in authority owe it to the commonwealth not only to provide for its external well-being and the conveniences of life, but still more to consult the welfare of men’s souls in the wisdom of their legislation. But, for the increase of such benefits, nothing more suitable can be conceived than the laws which have God for their author; and, therefore, they who in their government of the State take no account of these laws abuse political power by causing it to deviate from its proper end and from what nature itself prescribes.’ — par. 18 of Libertas, encyclical of Pope Leo XIII, on the nature of human liberty. June 1888.

In Catholic-scriptural teaching there is no real “liberty” or “freedom” from God to sin, even if there is an evil political liberty to do so. In Catholic teaching evil has no rights. Only to prevent greater disorders can some evils be tolerated within carefully circumscribed limits. But evil can never be accommodated or rationalized as not evil. Isa.5:20: “Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.”

Jn. 8:12: “Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

8: 31 Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham, and have never been in bondage to any one. How is it that you say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, every one who commits sin is a slave to sin.”

Year One is the very opposite of Christic Enlightenment (Jn. 8:12, 32) (4)— SH

(1) “Verily no one of sound mind can doubt the issue of this contest between man and the Most High. Man, abusing his liberty, can violate the right and the majesty of the Creator of the Universe; but the victory will ever be with God — nay, defeat is at hand at the moment when man, under the delusion of his triumph, rises up with most audacity. Of this we are assured in the holy books by God Himself. Unmindful, as it were, of His strength and greatness, He “overlooks the sins of men” (Wisd. xi., 24), but swiftly, after these apparent retreats, “awaked like a mighty man that hath been surfeited with wine” (Ps. Ixxvii., 65), “He shall break the heads of his enemies” (Ps. Ixvii., 22), that all may know “that God is the king of all the earth” (Ib. Ixvi., 8), “that the Gentiles may know themselves to be men’ (Ib. ix., 20). — E. Supremi. On the Restoration of All things in Christ. Pope Pius X – 1903, emphasis supplied
