Researchers of the genesis of modern Progressive Leftism say the movement first arose during the Renaissance as a rejection of the Christian church and the Biblical God in favor of ancient pantheist occult-magic science, esoteric Cabbalism, Ancient Mystery Religions, Luciferian Gnosticism, Egyptian Hermeticism, Satanic Theosophy, Roisicrucianism, Anthroposophy, alchemy, Buddism, Karma, evolution, reincarnation, Tantric sex-magic, the Eternal Return, and more.
With passage of time, a secularized version of the former emerged. It subdivided and was called Illuminist Free Masonry, positivist materialism and secular humanism. It then spawned a type of Gnostic 'quietist pantheism,' and eventually took outward expression in a variety of ideological, philosophical, and scientistic systems such as Bolshevism, Marxist Communism, National Socialism, Fabian Progressivism, Transhumanism, New World Order, the Great Reset, nihilism, existentialism, empiricism, scientific socialism, Freudianism, Jungianism, Hegelianism, utopianism, Darwinism, Cultural Marxism, multiculturalism, political correctness, CRT, Social Justice, Queer Theory, and Woke.
Modern Progressive Leftism and Global Transhumanism are continuations of the 20th century's totalitarian mass movements (i.e., Communism and National Socialism), which over time had gradually emerged out of Renaissance Gnosticism and magic science.
It was the apocalyptic prophet, Fyodor Dostoevsky, who foretold the rise of Marxist Communism in Russia and the murder of millions of people by Gnostic-Communists.
Dostoevsky was among the first to understand that the modern mass political movements were devilish Gnostic irreligion's aping science and reason and demonically dedicated to the rejection of the personal Triune Creator, destruction of Western Christian civilization, and to total suppression of the knowledge that man is created in the spiritual image of God.
At bottom modernity's Gnostic irreligion's are evil and spiritually, morally, and intellectually bankrupt, concluded Dostoevsky.
Shortly before the French Revolution-Terror, the rebellion against the living Creator had become so all-encompassing that in the words of Lester Crocker, the rebels desired,
In short, spiritually occluded by hatred, rebels were compelled by a spirit of madness to willfully choose to annihilate themselves by imagining they were soulless machines or plant-beings rather than created in the spiritual image of God. Nature, Gaia, Overmind, the Goddess of Historical Necessity, divinized dialectical matter — all of these irrational, non-existing Forces would eventually be touted as the magical 'un-creators,' and in time, come to be taught to Westerners as 'evolutionary science.'
Unfettered from the Creator and His absolute morality, rebels could now freely act upon their basest, most evil passions — which they would trumpet as 'reason' — and be free of guilt, or so they hoped.
Knowing the Truth, they nevertheless chose to reject Truth and embrace the lie.
The ultimate cause of disorder, chaos, pathological lying, hatred of humanity, murder, tyranny, and all other evils is rejection of God Almighty Creator of heaven and earth.
This evil begets other evils, and from the time of the Enlightenment up to our own time, a massive edifice of interlocking, tightly-woven lies has been spun by Gnostic God-and-human-haters.
Today a consuming Satanic darkness not only overshadows the West — all but obliterating the light of truth, reality, common sense and right and wrong — but under its' covering of darkness, has unleashed murder in numbers so vast that the word 'genocide' had to be invented in order to describe what took place in the USSR, Nazi Germany, and all other societies for whom the bell of death tolled when they fell into the hands of Gnostic irreligionists.
In today's psychological terminology, cognitive dissonance is the term used to describe what is in essence, the spiritually diseased, darkened soul so aptly dubbed liberal 'insanity' by some Conservative writers.
Cognitive dissonance, also known as moral imbecility, means that two opposing ideas or truth-claims — one true and one false — are held within one's mind at the same time. As pride is offended by truth, it selectively rejects truth and reality and instead, willfully embraces falsehood and fantasy, which it then insists is true. In short, the unreal becomes real, evil becomes good, lie becomes truth, abnormal becomes normal, and the guilty become the innocent. Acts 28:26-27 calls this condition 'willful ignorance.'
From the highest corridors of power to the lowest levels of society, moral imbecility is reaching critical mass in America.
Boasting of its scientific, enlightened, and reasoned thinking, the demonic spirit of Progressive Leftism and Global Transhumanism is a deceiver, for in reality their politics are the politics of fools and the wicked. Though the spirit brags it is forward-thinking, it has cast the West back into the darkness of myths, moral relativism, nihilism, death, polytheism, superstition, and the unfettered envy that characterized the Roman Empire as it slowly died.
Gnostic Progressivism’s much-vaunted 'change' and ‘science’ has led to the destruction of Western civilization built upon the true spiritual progress of Jesus Christ and His many disciples, one of whom was St. Augustine.
It was as Rome was dying that St. Augustine revolutionized and brought to a close antiquity's idea of freedom by connecting it with morals.
Augustine revolutionized the concept of freedom by connecting it to morals, or as our Founders said, to Virtues. Man, said Augustine, was not a slave to nature (or nature's 'gods') or to nature's laws, as Aristotle claimed. His freedom was a function of both will and moral state. Thus, man's will is free to turn to his Creator and seek Truth liberty, and life or perversely, to turn away from his Creator into the consuming darkness of willful ignorance and amorality, thus enslaving itself to pride, other vices and death. (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 57)
After the manner of St. Augustine, President Andrew Jackson's Secretary of War, Lewis Cass, much later wrote:
First man is willfully and progressively enslaved by his evil passions. Then he falls head-first into diabolicism. St. Augustine called this 'Libido Dominandi.' Thus, it is Libido Dominandi — wicked passions, moral imbecility and diabolical moral imbecility — that possesses the souls and minds of both Gnostic Progressive Left insiders, Global Transhumanists and their rabidly zealous camp followers.
In a treatise titled, "Leftism as Psychopathy,' John Ray (M.A.; Ph.D.) writes,
It is Ray's contention that this type of person falls within the category of psychopath and sub-clinical psychopath.
The most striking characteristic of the psychopath, notes Ray, is his "moral imbecility" — his breathtaking lack of feeling for other people and his disregard for the rules they live by. They are famous for their utter amorality, lack of remorse, willingness to lie, cheat, steal and kill.
In his analysis of the Progressive Left, Jamie Glazov author of United in Hate writes,
In other words, the Progressive Left hypocritically speaks with forked tongues and pretends not to know truth as it projects its own evils upon the innocent such as white Christians and Conservatives.
Progressives and Globalists are double speakers--the evil men of Psalm 140 whose tongues are sharp with poison under their lips. They set snares for the morally righteous and compass them about with deception.
Snares, lies, and deceptions — these are the evil essence of Saul Alinskys' Rules for Radicals among whose adherents are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. (United in Hate, p.1)
Glazov observes that the Progressive Left dedicates "their lives to erasing individuality — including their own — and becoming part of a group from whose party line they cannot waiver..."
They seek escape from their Creator through creation of what Eric Voegelin termed a 'second reality,' or fantasy that is an illusion of annihilation of self through absorption into nature.
Thus, they are "motivated by the Marxist dream of destroying the world as it is and building a utopia on its ashes..." (United in Hate, p. 2)
In short, with their greed, malice, hatred, and envy superheated by will-to-power, they seek not only the death of the Immortal God, but the destruction of the Created Order so they can build a New World Order.
This is Libido Dominandi super inflated to the critical stage of the demonic. The Gnostics now tread the same highway to hell taken by Nimrod (Genesis 10-8) who rebelled against God, then declared himself god-man and messiah, and with his adherents — who likewise embraced 'self as god' — attempted to bring heaven to earth (a New World Order) in Babylon.
St. Gregory of Nyssa defined envy as,
When we dig deep beneath the rationalizations proffered by Transnational Progressives, Global Transhumanists, and their political and media-mouthpieces calling for hate crime laws, redistribution of wealth, universal healthcare, Sustainability, UNESCO's call for teaching grade-school kids to masturbate, and population control schemes outwardly manifested in abortion (choice), eugenics, and multiple sustainable-growth schemes, we find the spirit of diabolical envy — the face of Satan— squatting there at bottom.
In the final analysis, malice and envy towards God the Father compels man to destroy creation and annihilate his God-given soul by imagining himself as 'one' with nature. This is the definition of damnation, said Fr. Aquaro. Hell is not a punishment meted out by a hateful God as some would think, but an absolute refusal of a pardon granted all mankind. It is impossible to receive good from a person one envies, and so it is that one cannot be saved if one resents God the Father.
This is the message of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32 when the elder brother refused to enter the house upon his brother's return. It is also the underlying meaning of CS Lewis's pointed observation that the door to hell will be slammed and locked from inside.
For all unrepentant God-haters, there awaits a freely chosen eternal equality in Hell:

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
