The reason 'Dilbert' is my favorite cartoon in the funny papers is that, behind the humor, there is the ring of truth to it. It is cubicle life in the corporate world, in which, the bigger the corporation becomes, the more it becomes about process and the less it becomes about actual work. Dilbert strikes a familiar chord in all who have ever lived the cubicle life.
In my own former cubicle life, my work was repeatedly and sometimes almost constantly interrupted by (usually) pointless meetings. Often meetings that had a point to them meandered off the point and became pointless. I may have doomed my own chances at rising above senior technical level by humorously criticizing meetings about meetings, and the committee to control committees, and calling for a meeting on meetings of the Committee Committee. I may have gotten a few muffled chuckles, but not exactly the admiration of my superiors.
Now we're seeing what appears to be Marxism-dominated bureacratic 'Process' thinking taking over the sole authority of the Pope to decisively keep the Church within the rails of the one true faith, as can be seen in the Complicit Clergy article below.
And we see a complicit Pope abandoning his holy mandate.
What brought this to my attention was an email from a friend pointing to the Fr. Altman story to the right. Another shocking story of the attack on Truth, and the muzzling of those who dare speak it.
If you are a Catholic Trad, despised by the wayward and Left-leaning seeming majority of Catholic clergy today, you need to be familiar or get more familiar with Complicit Clergy and get on their mailing list. We need all the truth we can get, and they need all the support we can give.
The 'Permanent Synod' story above may prove to be the high water mark for Communism inside the Catholic Church. It intends to get some select bunch of Bishops into a permanent, never ending meeting, from which the Church will be governed, as if the permanent synod were an actual government, displacing the original mandate of the Pope. And a Pope going along with it.
Way back in 2010 we wrote the Catholic Communism page, in which we heavily quoted Ludwig Von Mises, the famous Austrian economist, who described early Communism as trying to model itself on the Catholic Church, which he described as 'the perfect bureaucracy'. It was perfect because,
Note well, as Marxism has noted, that the Catholic Papacy is the oldest continuously existing human institution on earth, by a very wide margin.
But the differences between Catholicism and Communism - or, rather, the differences between Catholic bureaucracy and Communist bureaucracy - was that Catholicism had a Creed and a Depositum Fidei to protect unchanged until the end of time, and, Communism is all about change, of everything, always, and continuously.
And, of course, the real biggie pointed out by Mises: Communism had no process for the peaceful transfer of power. New dictators come to rule in Communist lands by ruthless politics, political intrigue, political assassinations, military coup or even Civil War. In Communist lands, when a dictator dies, there are never very many who will publicly announce their candidacy for the position, because that just might be a death sentence. There is nothing transparent or publicly known about high level inner Communist politics. Many do not even want to know.
By now it should be clear to all Catholic traditionalist observers that Communism - both Communist secret agents, and worse, Communist Ideology - has not only infiltrated but taken over most of the ruling hierarchy of Bishops and the Vatican itself.
Just as it has infiltrated and taken over much of the American government.
See the Hildebrand Interview in the Unreferenced Communism page. The late Bella Dodd was a secret Soviet agent, among others, who managed to get hundreds of Communist agents and hundreds of secret homosexual activists into Catholic seminaries, before she was converted into an actual repentant, contrite Catholic by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. But the damage was done.
We have written about the many Islamo-Commie-Homo Bishops and Cardinals who rose through the ranks from that underhanded beginning.
Communism, inside the Catholic Church, is turning Von Mises' comparison of Red bureaucracy to Church bureaucracy upside down. The new 'Communist' Catholic bureaucracy is opposed to protecting immutable truths and unchanging creeds; it is dedicated, instead, to never ending change, for the creation of a more Communist and Communizing world.
Religiously speaking, Catholicism is all about Truth, proselytizing and social stability, and Communism is all about Revolution, and revolutionary change.
Bureaucratically speaking, Catholicism is all about action - the proactive living of Catholic life, and Communism is all about process - the making, changing and remaking of rules restricting and constraining action.
Essentially, Catholicism is about life, and Communism is about death.
Communism itself is a lie. But whole generations of Catholics and Americans don't know that any more. It has been educated out of them. Education today is Communist indoctrination, and journalism today is Communist propaganda.
And that brings us to the differences between bourgeois thinking and Communist thinking.
The bourgeois employer constantly seeks to price his product and sell enough of it to cover licenses and taxes, the wages of his employees, the cost of his raw material, the rent, heat and electric, equipment, etc., and still make enough personal profit to make the personal business worthwhile.
The bourgeois employee constantly monitors the competitive job market for profitable opportunities, works overtime or more than one job in order to 'get ahead', and maybe start a business of his own, or homestead, or build a fortune on which to retire, or find some way to 'be his own boss'.
Bourgeois thinking is independent thinking. Communism hates that.
Independent thinking made the American Capitalist model, which made the largest, most wealthy and highest living Middle Class in all of world history.
But Communism hates Capitalism, and targets the bourgeois for destruction. The most hated and most often repeated words in Marx's Communist Manifesto are bourgeois and the bourgeoisie, singled out for destruction and eventual annihilation.
Until the bourgeoisie are finally annihilated, Communism seeks to grow Socialist thinking at the expense of bourgeois thinking, and schmooze independent populations into dependency on their own ever increasingly Communist governments before they become aware of it, and then, when the time is right, bring the hammer down.
It's happening in the Church, and it's happening in the nations.
The question is, what are we going to do about it?
Communist America thinks that we the bourgeois joined Trump; but the truth is, Trump, the bourgeois billionaire, joined us. Or, he always was one of us. He was one of us by his bourgeois thinking. The truth is, we were always of like minds.
Trump, the classical bourgeois, gets in there and gets things done, always favoring bourgeois American independent thinking.
Our increasingly Communist government works feverishly on process, and creating processes restricting bourgeois independence and action.
Today, most of our own American government hates and restricts the great American middle class, and establishes processes that harm it.
Original bourgeois American independent thinking is almost dead in American government today. No political party, as a party, promotes or defends it. Communists in American government today may call themselves New World Order 'conservatives', or even Globalists, or they may even favor a so-called 'Global Reset' without saying so, but, bottom line, they are Communist in their thinking, because that's what Communism is all about.
And that makes them just as anti-American as the Marxocrat Party.
So here we are, with Communists running Catholicism, and Communists running America, and Communists by other names controlling the whole election process, from the ballots to the booths to the boxes to the counting, all over America.
It's the American bourgeois - the American majority - against the whole world.
Will we do something about it, or will we just wait to be annihilated?
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

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.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"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
