It isn't effective because the goal is to kill people off.

This looks very interesting, but would take up too much of my time away from my duties. How far are you into watching it?

BTW, where did you get the idea that "usury is the root of evil" and that it worse than sơdơmy?

The root of evil according to St Paul in his instruction to St. Timothy is the love of money.
1 Tim 6: 6But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7For we brought nothing into this world: and certainly we can carry nothing out. 8But having food, and wherewith to be covered, with these we are content. 9For they that will become rich, fall into temptation, and into the snare of the devil, and into many unprofitable and hurtful desires, which drown men into destruction and perdition. 10For the desire of money is the root of all evils; which some coveting have erred from the faith, and have entangled themselves in many sorrows.
I think the OP has been reading a little too much of Michael Hoffman's works. That man believes usury is the most vile evil imaginable to mankind, apparently above that of blasphemy, as he goes as far as to blaspheme the Church by stating that saints and Popes have been complicit in usury for over 500 years since the Renaissance.

Blessed Mother and the apostles made the first novena starting the day after the ascension of Our Lord in preparation for the coming of the Holy Ghost at Pentecost.

With all the trouble the world is in lately, all true Catholics might consider following their example.    :pray:

I think it's interesting that so many "cօռspιʀαcʏ theories" of just a few years ago are admitted to be facts by the mainstream today.

The Social Credit Party was a provincial organization/party that ruled Alberta in the early part of the 20th century. What comes around goes left then  into the brick wall.

Thanks for catching that.

I should replace it with the death counts of both WWI and WWII.

The Cult of Medicine and the Great Credulity of Unbelievers
By
Louis Veuillot
(L'Univers, April 1, 1847)
 
Medicine holds a great place in unbelieving societies. The more man moves away from Christian truths, the more he clings to life.  Whether he believes he is reserved for nothingness, whether the thought of another life sometimes comes to torment him, living for a long time is his main business; for his nature abhors nothingness, and his conscience is afraid of eternity.
He fears illness not only because it is the deprivation of enjoyment, the only happiness to which he knows how to aspire, not only because it is pain (the price of which he does not know and against which his soul is without strength), but because it is the announcement or the threat of this death which is going to either destroy him like a vile animal, or perhaps deliver him imperishable and defiled to the judgments of the supreme justice. As long as he is well, he is willingly sceptical and irreverent towards the art of healing, [but] at the first shiver, medicine becomes his only hope. He puts himself into its hands, docile to the point of cowardice, credulous to the point of stupidity.

The cult of medicine knows no atheist among those who deny everything else. How many of these strong spirits do we not see?  Superb mockers of religious practices and abstinence, who, once afflicted with a real or imaginary evil, become sober, continent, flee the world and business, make retreats in the country to the countryside and pilgrimages to the baths, go far away to consult scientists and hypnotists, wear a piece of camphor as a scapular on their person or some bottle of perfume as a scapular!  There is nothing that the doctor cannot get from them. This body that inspires them with so much worry, they subject to painful treatments. They pay for and swallow the most infamous drugs without a murmur, they guard the prison, they beat the countryside with forced marches, they flog themselves, they go into exile, they immerse themselves in icy or putrid waters. What would they not do?

If the doctor told them to spend two hours every day on their knees on the flagstones, in front of a lighted candle, they would certainly clutter up our churches and force the State to build new ones!

Good thing they're separating the ναccιnαted and unναccιnαted fans.  ::)

Where is it then? Is it because you now realise the SSPX are correct?
You sound pretty dishonest to me.
You do not use an American idiom. What country are you from? How many accounts did you set up? (Poke, Gardner, now Pax)

Stuff like this is why Traditional Catholics should not expect a Restoration any time soon.

cօռspιʀαcʏ theories proliferate because of a breakdown in social trust. A good and healthy society/government/elite, would respond by addressing this breakdown in social trust, take some responsibility for it, and try to fix it. A sick one would not, or even worse as in our time, censor and browbeat its people instead while spreading false propaganda.
