Whether that re-revolution will mean physical violence or mental and spiritual painful re-thinking, or some combination, is unknown. But everyone with eyes to see and who is not distracted by nonsensical trivia can see a radical reset coming to America, and to the world.
But there are just so many who are not even paying attention.
For a number of years now I have almost uncontrollably vacillated between the theological virtue of hope and the mortal sin of utter despair - the exact opposite of hope - because the coming reset is so glaringly obvious. It is not me I worry about, but us. All of us.
Writing the book, [Culture = Religion + Politics], brought it all into sharp focus, and so these thoughts are set down here to record the moment, as we await the proofing process before the book is finalized and released to the public.
In among the Winnowing Pages we talked about how it did not take a majority, but a dedicated third, to win our American Revolutionary War. And so it was with just about every major issue the young nation faced. The moral issue of forced black slavery is another example. It took a dedicated moral third to push the abolition movement all the way through even a civil war, to end it. There was an opposing third, and there was an uncommitted, or not so dedicated, lukewarm middle third.
Most people today are unaware of the fact that so many fought and died or were crippled in a civil war not of their choosing, because they were not necessarily part of the winning third or the losing third. Once civil war starts, it affects everyone - everyone is swept into it, like it or not, because the very ground being fought over is just as likely to be yours as anyone else's . When your home is invaded, free choice is gone. You fight or you die.
Many in the South never owned slaves. Many in the North didn't give a damn, one way or the other. But once an army invades your neighborhood, your farm, your Church, your home, all of that changes, and you meet the challenge right in front of you. Many, perhaps most, who enlisted, on either side, did so out of love of home, family and neighbor.
Just as a dedicated third won the Revolutionary War, a dedicated third won the Civil War, but both were won only at great cost. Because it was right. It was the right thing to do.
So the question becomes, not so much "how do you feel about it", but rather, "is the action just, or unjust". Is it right, or is it wrong. If it is wrong, then, the system needs a reset. It seems so obvious, but there must be a realization that everyone won't see it. Just as everyone won't make it to heaven. Everyone will never be dedicated to right and opposed to wrong. And everyone will never be dedicated to wrong and opposed to right. But that does not mean the end of any sense of right versus wrong. Natural law does not change.
Look at your Scripture. Especially, look at St. Jerome's Vulgate version. That Scripture has not changed. We have a fixed peg, a rock, upon which we can depend for discerning right from wrong. No matter what the world says, right and wrong do not change.
The American Reset is already being forced upon us by the American enemy third. It is also the Christian enemy third. We are in the middle of the reset, and most of us are still unaware of it.
We have many diverse Trojan Horses inside the city walls, and most of us don't recognize them for what they are. We are so fooled and so softened to the notion that Marxism, for instance, is a harmless ideology, one among many, that we have elected and appointed Marxists into high office, and our own government is now being run by them. Despite the fact that Marxism, in every variant known, opposes the American Constitution, the natural civil rights outlined in the Declaration, Christianity itself, and everything this nation stands for. But we have put them in charge of us.
A mortal enemy of the American Constitution is driving the American bus.
We are so fooled and so softened to the notion that Islam, for instance, is a harmless religion, one among many, that we have allowed little Islamic Caliphates to grow and metastasize in neighborhoods all over America. But Islam is not harmless; quit the opposite. It is absolutely intolerant of our Constitution, our Declaration, our standing law, our religion and our nation. It's own scripture says so. Jihad - holy war against us - is all over the Koran, and is preached in every mosque on earth. But they lie to us, in accordance with instructions from the Koran, to make us believe Islam is a religion of peace, until they are numerous enough and strong enough to destroy us.
Our government, our courts, our education system, our news media are now so corrupted in thought and overall philosophy that they openly persecute Christians for practicing their faith in America, and they - most of them - don't even see what they are doing as religious persecution. Why, they're not doing what ISIS is doing in the Middle East, after all. They're just sending clerks to prison for not cooperating in mortal sin, and putting Christians out of business for refusing to to bake immoral cakes or photograph sodomic ceremonies. That's not religious persecution, in their tiny little minds.
It's even going on in the Church, of all things. Our Bishops seem to be aligned into a dedicated to Truth third, a lukewarm third and a dedicated to evil third. The last institution on earth we would think could be corrupted is, quite obviously, corrupted. And desperately in need of a reset.
Look around. The only things protected and promoted are immoral. The only things attacked are moral. The reset is upon us. It is a time of choosing sides.
Wake up and Choose.

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.

The Purpose of this grouping of articles is to highlight the three incompatible geopolitical movements in global contention: American Constitutionalism, Marxism and Islam. And to give evidence to the insidious infiltration of Marxist and Islamic thought, and corrosive evil, into American Culture.
A fixed social moral code, born of religion, is what makes a unique, identifiable People, distinct from other Peoples. Distinct People of a common moral code make civil laws representing and reinforcing their common moral code, via Politics. When a distinctly moral People live within a distinct Political organization they form a distinct and identifiable Human Culture.
Truth is the only thing we can Unite on. Yet Real Truth Divides.
Truth Divides, because Truth Hurts. Any "Truth" that indiscriminately Unites is a False Truth.
Broken Communion with God ultimately causes the broken human community. Man is a social being, in need of community with others. Broken Communion is an unnatural disorder for man.

On entering (or avoiding) the Catholic American Discomfort Zone. Let's not talk about Religion or Politics today; it's confrontational and uncomfortable. Let's avoid the Discomfort Zone.
Unique, Distinct, Identifiable Human Culture = Religion + Politics. The Formula [Culture = Religion + Politics] is what makes a distinct, identifiable People a distinct and identifiable People.
The Formula [Culture=Religion+Politics] is Inviolate. Politics merely organize Human Culture around the predominant Religious beliefs of a distinct and identifiable People.
Whether the result means death or rebirth, the American Reset will be painful. America was born in Revolution. If the reset means rebirth, it will only come through re-revolution.

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?
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
