It is not surprising, since most errors of our time can be traced to the falsely named "Enlightenment". It, in turn, can be traced back to the Protestant "Reformation". When we study history we can see that all these evils are connected.
Totally agree. And to introduce a slight tangent, when you view Ven. Bartholomew Holzhauser's writings on the "7 ages of the Church", it's easy to see that we are living in the 5th age (and, thankfully, the tail-end of it). The beginning of the 5th age, in my opinion, would've been 1517 and the Protestant Revolt, which as you correctly point out, was the end of the catholic-high point of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Church's problems, which continue to effect us even today.
But I do firmly believe that feminism and all other "isms" are beginning to lose steam. People are waking up to the fact that they are empty promises. It is always the NWO's plan to take everything to the extreme, so that when the current solution then becomes a problem, a new solution is introduced (which is just as bad as the former solution, but in a different way. When this newest solution is taken to the point of extreme, then solution #3 is proposed, and taken to the extreme, etc). All of these "solutions/problems/solutions" just further the plan towards the ultimate anti-christ society. And people don't see it unless they study history...which most do not (and even if they do, they study false history, not through the lense of catholicism).
Yet, I believe Our Lady will "upset the apple cart" of the globalists/satanists soon. You can see it slowly happening in many countries, but still, most people think that things can turn around through human/political means. Not gonna happen. She will let things continue to accelerate, so that people will "wake up" from the atheist/communist indoctrination and see that the "solutions" offered do not work. Some won't wake up until rioting/social chaos hits their front door. Let's pray that it does not take a life-and-death situation for society to turn to God. I'm afraid it will.
