Wow... just wow MT. What an eye you have! So Johnson is "wilding" now.
BTW, I heard a great lecture by an SSPX priest, (Father Ruiz?) years ago on Rousseau.
He was a madman, but his anti-Catholic theology has kept an insidious influence on modern society.
What else could preserve such lies than a spell from Kabbalah magic?
I would love to listen to an audio recording of that lecture. I studied both Rousseau and Voltaire in college and sometimes had to stop reading their personal correspondences because they were so vulgar. Rousseau's autobiography, Confessions
, is especially graphic and shows what a depraved person he was. He undoubtedly chose that particular title for his autobiography because he was deliberately setting himself up as an anti-St. Augustine. Augustine emphasized man's fallen condition and the need for grace, faith, and baptism. Rousseau wrote the exact opposite, claiming that man is naturally good.
Rousseau told Voltaire in one of his letters that he should have three mistresses in honor of the Trinity. They both were clearly filled with a satanic hatred of God. They, with the help of the intelligence of a fallen angel, were able to realize that the most effective way to destroy the Church would be to get people to think that there is salvation outside of her. Voltaire expressed the same hatred for EENS as did Rousseau. I started another thread on Voltaire a couple years ago with a quote of his https://www.cathinfo.com/baptism-of-desire-and-feeneyism/voltaire-on-eens/
Msgr. George Dillon wrote the following about occult practices performed at the tomb of Jean-Jacques in his Grand Orient Fɾҽҽmαsσɳɾყ Unmasked:

"It is known," he says, "that the Chateau de Ermanonville belonging to the Sieur Girardin, about ten leagues from Paris, was a famous haunt of Illuminism. It is known that there, near the tomb of Jean-Jacques [Rousseau], under the pretext of bringing men back to the age of nature, reigned the most horrible dissoluteness of morals. Nothing can equal the turpitude of morals which reigns amongst that horde of Ermanonville. Every woman admitted to the mysteries became common to the brothers, and was delivered up to the chance or to the choice of these true Adamites'. "[Abbe Augustin] Barruel in his Memoires sur le Jacobinisme, vol. iv. p. 334, says "that M. Leseure, the father of the hero of La Vendee, having been affiliated to a lodge of this kind, and having, in obedience to the promptings of conscience, abandoned it, was soon after poisoned." He himself declared to the Marquis de Montron that he fell a victim to "that infamous horde of the Illuminati..."
