Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center

It is the Saturday of the Paschal Triduum; the day of the Vigil at the Tomb. A day of silence, fasting and waiting; a day of prayer.
But all the Churches are now closed due to the phony crisis.
Looking back at Growing Dependency, its deja vu all over again.
Once upon a time America was a nation peopled by fiercely independent, can-do rugged individualists. That was then; this is now. Cultural Marxism's Progressive Communism has done its work well and transformed much of the American citizenry into social dependents. People who just cant't make it on their own, and people who can no longer depend on families because Progressivism has destroyed families. People who can no longer (or don't want to) depend on a Church family, because Progressivism has destroyed faith in God, and weakened, relativized and subjugated religion.
The whole goal of Progressive Communism is to make everyone in a nation either an employee of the government, or, totally dependent upon the government for everything.
Work; money; benefits; food; housing; you name it.
With one stroke, all of that has been very nearly achieved by the Chi-Comm (Corona) virus manufactured political crisis. The whole nation, the whole economy, has been shut down, and the longer it stays down the more dependent upon the government the whole population is going to become.
We have seen this coming and warned against it, among the Cut The Spending Pages, among the Fixing America Pages and elsewhere all over this website. All that was a gradual "boil the frog" process of slowly conquering America, or actually, getting Americans to conquer themselves.
But now, with this one single crisis, the whole USA could be doomed.
And the once upon a time fiercely independent, can-do rugged individualist citizenry is, for the most part, sheepishly going along with all of it. Scared to death. Accepting yet another one of the Left's "New Normals" as if they had no other choice. Believing it all. Uncritically.
Fully prepared to "social distance" forever and ever; committed to never shaking hands again, to never hugging anyone, to never receiving the Sacraments again, to wearing masks everywhere, and - most importantly - to obeying the government.
And just who, exactly, is "The Government" giving the orders?
The much vaunted Bureaucratic Experts who teach us about the virus.
And why them and not the elected government?
Because they are the keepers of the vitally necessary terrifying numbers.
As pointed out in the Bureaucratic Expert page, once you get a Wuhan Virus victim on a ventilator, it is very difficult getting him back off of it again without killing him.
In a similar manner, once you get tens or hundreds of millions of Americans on government dependency, it may be very difficult ever getting many of them off it again.
The longer we, and President Trump, allow this nonsense to go on, the more likely it becomes that Progressive Communism will have won and Constitutional America will be no more.
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 the Enemy!
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
