    Yes, that's true, if you notice I mentioned they have a tendency towards Americanism, the Republican party, etc.

  • Ultimately it's analogous to the law of gravity. Without the 'bouyancy' afforded by divine breath, we sink into the waters and drown.

    On a more precise psychological and ideological plane, it can only be because ‘conservatives’ have tacitly accepted the principle at the heart of revolution, namely egalitarianism. Thus they have no principled reason to oppose the left, only pragmatic and often basely economic arguments about avoiding ‘too much of a good thing’ or ‘too much, too fast’. Those to the left are viewed as good-hearted if perhaps a bit rash. On the other hand, such ‘conservatives’ do have a principled reason to oppose people to their right, whether or not those people really believe in hierarchy or not: since they stand further from the central principle of universal equality, they are therefore bad people.

    That being said, I think "SVs" are just dead wrong, and they can also be politically progressive as well or unwittingly embrace positions that have always been hostile to the Catholic one.


    I have never encountered a sedevacantist, in person or on line, who struck me as anything resembling a political progressive.
    Stir up within Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the Spirit with which blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, was filled, when he laid down his life for his sheep: so that, through his intercession, we too may be moved and strengthen by the same Spir

  • Here is what an NO Catholic I know said after the recent death of a Canadian leftist politician: “I’m not quite brave enough for his politics, but he was a good man who cared about the people.” A good example of how an unprincipled 'conservative' works after having tacitly accepted the age-old premise behind revolutionary politics.
