Human Culture is:
Culture is the stuff of which Nations are made. Culture is born of Ethos, and Ethos is born of Religion.
Religion forms Culture; Politics, in the best of cases, keeps Culture within the bounds of Religion. While there is a balance required between Religion and Politics, Religion is the most important component, because Religion defines the very purpose for being, imbues disciples with transcendent motivations, and establishes a collective behavioral path that will be voluntarily and happily followed by the Disciples.
Politics - civil government and civil law - works best in a Culture when it agrees with, enhances and does not oppose the Religion of the Culture. Law that opposes the Culture's religion goes against the nature of the Culture.
The principle of "One God" religion, first revealed by God to Judaism, was arrived at by the ancient pagan Greek philosophers through pure reason alone. They reasoned that there must be one and only one originator of creation - of all matter - and that, even if there be other gods, they must have been created by this one original Creator God.
Judaeo-Christianity is the only historical religion in which God revealed Himself to Man, came to man, walked with man, inspired man and taught man. The whole of the Old Testament is a history of salvation history up to the final redemption events of the New Testament, which constituted the birth of Catholicism. The Commandments, first revealed to Moses, reinforced by Jesus of Nazareth, set the foundation stone upon which Western Civilization was built.
The violent wars of the Reformation set the stage for the steady decline of monarchy and nobility ruling nations. Martin Luther, the German Augustinian Catholic Priest who was the first Protestant to break away from Catholicism, in order to succeed in his breaking away, successfully established the purely political rule:
Cujus region, ejus rligio (Whoever’s reign, his religion.) A citizen’s religion became a matter of civil law. “He who owns the country owns the Church, and he that makes your laws for you has the right to make your religion for you.”
With that rule, Luther recruited Princes to his cause, and European Nobility found a new source of profit, if they would abandon their Catholic faith to get it.
This rule brought about the huge territorial wars in which Nobles fought to become little mini-Popes in their existing and new domains and kingdoms, possessing confiscated monasteries, convents, churches and cathedrals, and fiercely dictating their newly adopted religions for the people. From that point on, Europe descended into a bunch of theocracies, in which the nobles enforced the state religions, and other religions were held to be "enemies of the state".
That political interference with religion brought about two seismic changes in Western Civilization government:
History proves that the American idea worked best. If it is now in decline, that is only because her founding principles and Constitution are being violated by the government. American politics, civil government and civil law are now way, way out of Constitutional bounds, and doing things that are clearly unconstitutional and illegal.
But the road map for getting back on the unique American cultural course is right there, in the Declaration and the Constitution itself. Restoring America's greatness involves nothing more than getting back to basics, which is to say, to do exactly what the Constitution says to do, and nothing else.
That, of course, is beyond the capabilities of our Political Parties, which exist merely to exist, and to wield extra-constitutional power over the whole nation. America's Political Parties, which in reality are actually ruling America, are clearly and obviously opposed to America's Judaeo-Christian denominational religions.
That is America's singular problem.
The word Islam means Submission. The mission of Islam, and the whole purpose for being for the Islamic disciple, is to dominate the world, by force. To grow Islam at the expense of the non-Islamic world, bringing all the world into:
Islam has two major doctrines by which to conquer the world; Jihad, or holy war, and Taqiyya, the doctrine of lying to the non-Islamic world about Islam's real intentions toward it until it is possible to conquer it. All Moslems will support the doctrines of Jihad and Taqiyya.
Islam is antithetical to America, because it acts in direct opposition to the Natural Rights of man established in the Declaration, and it opposes the American Constitution in every respect, most especially the citizen rights enshrined in the Bill Of Rights. Islam seeks to destroy if not dominate Christianity, Judaism and every other religion on earth. It also seeks to replace the American Constitution, and every other form of government in existence, with Islamic law.
Islam is an absolute theocracy; a radical combination of Church and State.
In all other religions, man went looking for God, and "found" one or more gods in their imaginations or inner minds, and made various images, idols, temples, liturgies and practices. For the most part, or at least for the largest of these, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Shintoism, etc., they were politically benign or neutral, because they were "compartmentalized" religions. Religion was kept in a "compartment" of the mind, separate from the practical, real-world living of life. Thus these religions could exist under a wide variety of political arrangements.
These religions are usually thought of as relatively harmless to the world social order, because they do not normally seek to impose themselves on others, or force people into the religion.
In America, immigrants holding these religions should be welcome so long as they recognize that the Constitution is the law of the land, and the Natural Law rights of man enshrined in the Declaration may not be violated. If they can embrace the Declaration and the Constitution, once assimilated into the American Culture, they can make good American citizens, regardless of their religion.
The idea of a purely secular society governed by a purely secular government was born of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. From its birth, secular government has proved to be more barbaric and cruel to its own citizens than any pagan society in history. The state crushing of religion could not be accomplished without massive bloodshed and state sponsored terror campaigns.
In every instance, when it proved to be impossible to kill everyone who refused to abandon their religion, state sponsored terror campaigns drove religion underground. When even that proved not totally effective, certain religions were allowed above ground, but totally dominated by and fiercely governed by the secular state. This was as close as secular government could ever come to establishing domination over religious belief in large countries, such as Russia.
The anti-religion theme of the French Revolution was amplified in the Communist revolutionary movement. Inspired by the evil genius of Machiavelli and the "dialectic" approach of Hegel, Karl Marx and others of like mind developed the Communist Revolutionary approach to achieving a global, international, one-world secular government. That is what his Communist Manifesto, co-authored with Frederick Engels, aims to accomplish.
Marxism would like to prohibit all religion, but that has proved impossible to achieve, short of eliminating whole populations of nations. Thus we see, in Russia, a state-sponsored Russian Orthodox Church, under the tight control of the state. And in China, a Chinese "Catholic" Church, in which the Bishops are approved, if not chosen, by the state. And in all countries that call themselves Communist, religions that are severely restricted in what they may preach, and, in essence, owned and operated by government administrators.
The fatally flawed economic doctrines of Marxism - collectivism, community property, redistribution, social-sameness, etc. - are almost never pure. They couldn't be, for very long. Always there is some form of corruption of the Marxist ideal situation. In the Fascistic or National Socialist forms of Marxism, as exemplified under the likes of Mussolini and Hitler, rather than collectivize all of industry and banking under the state, the state got into corrupt incestuous relationship with the owners or managers of industry and banks.
Today, both China and Russia have adopted something more along the lines of National Socialism than pure Communism, just for the sake of economic survival. They still call themselves Communist but - let's face it - pure Communism is and always was quite impossible. The most Communistic of all Communist states in history were always something other than pure Communist. Pure Communism has never existed, because it cannot exist. It is unworkable and impossible. Utopia is impossible to achieve. There is and can be no such thing as any Worker's Paradise.
In this sort of relationship of extreme Crony-Capitalism under Socialism, it was sometimes hard to tell whether the dictator held the leash of the industrialists and the bankers, or they held the leash of the dictator. In every case, whether they called themselves Fascist, National Socialist or Communist, they were always in truth Dictatorships operating under a false facade of whatever they claimed themselves to be.
The citizenry had no voice in the process. The state sought to take the place of God.
Marxism seeks to eliminate Religion; Islam seeks to corrupt it and use it to govern. America established the best balance between Religion and Politics to form a truly superior, if imperfect, Culture. Marxist infiltration into the American political process is working to undo all that, and Islam is always ready to take advantage of situations.
We will explore the Political component, and the Cultural component, in other articles.

These Demons can try as they might, but the majority of people have compassion for their neighbours. Yes they can do mortal damage to souls and many souls are lost, but ultimately people will do submissive acts to save their own and other peoples souls. These Good Souls may be unfortunately not many but their deeds are many and not lost. The early Christians come to mind. Remember "That a shroud has no pockets". Thank God it doesn't as if it did I would not get past coffin.

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
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.
On the Coming Total Global Reset. This Global Reset will touch every aspect of human life, and nothing will be the same again.

[Culture = Religion + Politics] is the inviolate formula of Civilization itself. Culture = Religion + Politics makes a unique, distinct, identifiable People. Take Religion (and religious morality) out of it, and the Culture disintegrates.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
