A little over five years ago we ranted on about the once prominent but now lost virtue of individual Industry in America's youth. Young people, we complained, were no longer being allowed to be industrious, by their parents, by their elders, by their teachers and even by their own government. Children were ever increasingly being transformed from industrious learners into over-protected perpetual dependents.
What people learn in their youth gets exaggerated in what they pass on to their own children. Each generation that is over-protected over-protects the next generation even more. We have forgotten the cultural fact that our founding fathers were less geniuses than they were already highly accomplished if not master craftsmen of some sort before they ever reached adulthood. Being highly skilled at something before reaching majority was common, not rare.
This came from participating in the business of the family, as we imagine that Jesus participated in the carpentry of Joseph. And it grew from children learning from whatever other skills were being practiced all around them that drew their interest the most. And they were allowed to pursue those interests and to seek and experiment and learn.
Now, it seems that children are prevented from doing practical work until after they have earned a Phd degree in some useless subject and accumulated massive student loan debt, while they still live with their parents.
What is lost, along with the virtue of industry, is simple practicality. The average adult today "knows" everything, but can "do" next to nothing.
And much if not most of what they "know" is wrong. Not even true.
Darwinism. Freudianism. Marxism. Anthropomorphic Climate Change. Genders other than male and female. Atheistic Materialism. The social acceptability of sin and perversion of nature. The establishments of actual legal "rights" to sin and to be perverse. The supposed "evil" of human kind. The supposed "goodness" of a world devoid of mankind.
How is it that President Donald J. Trump does so much for America in so short a time with so little cooperation and against all the massive opposition to him coming from every quarter?
Is he breaking the mold, or, did he fall out of the old Industrious mold?
In President Trump, more than anyone else in public view today, we see proof positive that it is industriousness that produces, feeds and grows Capitalism. And Capitalism produces and grows national Wealth.
He learned at his father's knee; his children learn from him; they epitomize industriousness and practicality. We should pray that future American Presidents may come from among them, because America needs practical and industrious leadership as much as the American citizenry need to become more industrious and practical, as they once most typically were, historically speaking.
The real reason President Trump succeeds in his programs against all opposition is that he is a doer of things and they are mere thinkers of things. They think and they ponder and they pontificate, write, speak, etc., and they are all stuck in process, while Trump simply acts. He actually does what so many of them merely propose should be done.
In physics, work is measured only by something having been moved. If nothing has moved, no work has been done, regardless of the sweat on anyone's brow or how tired they may be from some effort to accomplish something. If nothing has moved, no work can be measured.
How long have we heard various Republicrats and Marxocrats in high office promising an economic turn-around and economic prosperity for the nation?
Trump has done it, and he has done it almost singlehandedly. On his own.
But the worst thing that has arisen from the continual social quashing of individual industry is the resulting incompetence, sloth and indolence among the citizenry that increases with every generation.
It must be stopped.
A citizenry is dependent and not independent to the same degree that a citizenry is steeped in indolence and incompetence. And a dependent citizenry seeks increasingly Socialist government to feed it and take care of it, since it can no longer do those things for itself.
Cultural industry is replaced by cultural anger aimed at the industrious.
What is even worse than that is that a Socialism-leaning citizenry is ripe for tyrannical Marxist takeover, and the more Socialist any culture becomes they more necessary the takeover becomes, because Socialism is a false ideology that does not and cannot work, in the practical world.
"Progressive" Socialism induces progressive economic failure and chaos.
It doesn't work because it cannot work, and modern models of it are all lies. Marx was a liar; Machiavelli before him was a liar; Luther and Munzer before Machiavelli were liars. It's all a lie. Lenin, Stalin, Franco, Azana, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Fidel, Che, Ho, Pol, Hugo, all, were liars.
There is and can be no Socialist utopia, no super race, no corporatism, no Socialism or other anti-capitalism of any kind. No salvific, wealth producing or even self sustaining government, and certainly no worker's paradise. There is not and cannot be any such thing. It's just a lure; a trick, to fool enough of a citizenry to trust their government to save them and/or to feed them, to enable and empower a tyrannical ruler to use them to seize all power, take over and rule them. Tyrannically. That's all it is and that's all it has ever been. A betrayal of trust; a fooling of a citizenry.
It is a betrayal of honest politics, in as much as politics can be honest.The whole reason, years ago, that we wrote the MEJTML14 hover-link was so that we wouldn't have to keep typing over and over again the same old "You show me a Marxist and I'll show you an ends-justify-the-means liar" every time we were speaking of yet another lying Marxist.
Marxists lie because Marsists have to lie, since Marxism itself is a lie. If a Marxist ever tells the truth, he loses. Marxism, in any form, cannot achieve the power it seeks without lying, big, bold and without letup.
Just as everyone in and involved in advancing the Cultural Marxism movement is necessarily a liar, the whole Marxocrat Party today is a liar. It is exceedingly difficult today for any Marxocrat Party politician or government employee to remain a member of that party and not be a liar. The Clintons and all the Clintonistas still holding any kind of government positions or positions in the news media are all liars. The Obamas and all Obamunists still holding any kind of government positions or positions in the news media are all liars.
Just look at the lies they heap on President Trump. Every single one of them that repeated the statement that there was "overwhelming evidence" supporting wrongdoing in office worthy of impeachment if not criminal prosecution was lying. And all the leading big names in the party repeated that flagrant lie. Not only do they not have any such overwhelming evidence, they don't have any such evidence at all.
They don't even have a crime; they cannot name the criminal code or statute supposedly violated. They have all been consistently lying along these lines for a full three years, and some of them, longer.
Now they say, over and over again, that Trump demanded something from the Ukrainian President; yet we have the transcript, and there was no demand in it. They say over and over again that Trump withheld funds due to the Ukraine in that conversation, and yet, we have the transcript, the the funds were never even mentioned. They say that Trump demanded help with his political campaign (as if he needed it), and yet, we have the transcript, and no political campaign was ever even mentioned.
They insist that witnesses be called, and yet, if there was no crime, there were no witnesses, unless they want witnesses to something other than a crime, like, perhaps, second or third hand opinions about hidden meanings, or even first-hand opinions about how something that was said meant something other than the clear meaning of the actual recorded words.
All subjectivity; all political opinion; no objective facts involved at all.
All purely political lies.
And accompanied by the lies with which the citizenry are being fooled. That anthropomorphic climate change is dooming life on earth, and that the Marxocrats and only the Marxocrats can somewhat prolong life on earth if they are elected, or perhaps colonize Mars to save the human species that they have been demonizing as evil, perhaps so that the evil humans can destroy "life" on other planets.
Yeah, there are Marxocrats promoting this crapolla.
And look at what else Marxocratism has brought upon us all, with the non-resistance and even bipartisan cooperation of the Republicrat Party.
That sin should be normalized, and sinners welcomed in society, and given special rights, and the Constitutional rights of those who oppose sin should be suppressed, so that no one may speak or act or discriminate in any way in opposition to sin.
That perverts and perversion should be "naturalized" welcomed and blessed everywhere in culture, and given special legal rights protecting them, and that the Constitutional rights of all who oppose perversion should be suppressed, so that no one may speak or act in opposition to perversions of nature, and no one may discriminate in any way against any perverse activity or person.
As proof of this moral switcheroo, we have men going into lady's rest rooms, and we have men competing on women's sports teams and in women's events.
With the protection of the courts and sponsorship of the Marxocrat Party.
We even have a male candidate for President in the Marxocrat Party, who is "married" to another man. And he refers to his "spouse" as his husband; which, we must suppose, makes this Presidential candidate the "wife" in this rather queer arrangement. So, if he were to actually win the Presidency, America would have its very first First Husband.
And nobody is saying one word against this absolute nonsense.
Not one word.
No one in any Party says anything about it, which means, everyone in every Party sees no real problem with it. They agree with it. They think it's wonderful. They see that as cultural Progress.
It isn't just industry that is being progressively expunged from American culture; it is simple adult judgment, and it is also manhood.
Have all the decent politicians gone cowardly? Or are there no decent politicians left in America.
How about all the decent Pastors of all the decent Churches? Are there any left?
We should not be surprised at the silence of the Roman Catholic hierarchy, because it looks like they, in their majority, may be even more queer than Pete Buttigiege-Glezman, and most of those who are not queer are too cowardly even to be Catholic, let alone Bishops.
Satan always blurs the lines between good and evil with shades of grey.
Are all black and white issues, no bones about it.
Satan is a liar.
Very simple; nothing to it.
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.
Print, sign and send The Letter, 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.
Get in the fight! Engage!

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
