Time for our often much too grumpy laymen to get to work, praise the Lord and pass the ammo.
I know this is an expression, but I think "many a truth is said in jest" in your case. Again, you seem to be alluding to some kind of lay activism, along the lines of what is most commonly associated with radical Muslims -- i.e., terrorism, blowing things up.
As I've said before, just out with your plan. If you mean terrorism, just say terrorism. You can't describe terrorism without using the term. That's not going to fly. For the sake of honesty and clarity, please don't beat around the bush.
I'd like to know how a few, impatient, deeply principled but vastly outnumbered laymen are going to "radically change the world" without some kind of "asymmetrical" tactics.
Thank you for asking, Mr. Matthew. This blogger will try to put this in terms laymen should understand. No clerical niceties for this audience:
Actually the direction of the use of force in human society is the main function of the State. Catholic laymen should abandon the prevailing Anarchist mind-set and think more seriously about mastery of the State by Catholics. As Catholics we would instantly and effortlessly know that this is entirely a question of elites and we would notice that the existing non-Catholic elites consist entirely of the various Marxist factions derived from the Russian Bolshevik Revolution of a century ago. Then we would remember that these Marxist factions are also Judaic heresies, that Catholicism aims its force against said heresies and therefore those Marxist factions are in a very bad way, thanks to the Catholic elite of the past two centuries or so having generally continuously blasted them to Kingdom Come. Communism meets Anti-communism and that should be a very pleasant thought for Catholic laymen.
The above should indicate to us that what is being referred to is not shadowy terrorism, but rather what is known as "the Armed Forces". True enough, those are the actual reservoirs of terror in the human race, but nevertheless they are also the height of respectability. As the total disintegration of the Marxist factions (caused by us) is felt more and more, the Armed Forces become spiritual orphans. And there is only one elite left functional and standing: the Catholic Nationalists. Hence the Armed Forces (aka N.A.T.O.) are stuck with us. We are the only elite available to them and they must have an elite to lead them. It will dawn on them that, as always, "Paris is worth a Mass". Such is the institutional reality of the Armed Forces of Europe and the Americas. The Catholics have successfully destroyed every rival elite. Day by day the Catholic laymen are more free to do whatever they damn please. Because who is going to tell them "No"? Only the elites the Catholics have destroyed, which is to say only the dead.
The Catholics enjoyed some major victories in the Second World War. The Catholics won the Cold War. The anti-Catholic Bush, Clinton and Obama regimes have been monumental flops of historic proportions. These things have consequences that are very favourable to the Catholic Nationalist elite. Politics favours the Nationalists more and more, the Nationalists must move more and more to the Right for lack of any Marxist elite to stop them and the ever-more successful Nationalists need the Catholic Nationalist elite more and more for lack of any alternative to lead them. The rise of Catholic Caesars is already unstoppable.
In laymen's terms, it pays to be the only game in town and the Catholic Nationalist elite is in elite terms the only game in town, or in N.A.T.O. So it is basically us or Al-Qaida, which is not a serious option. Their global strength has been wasted in the sands of Syria and the region we know as the Holy Land. The winners of the wars in the Middle East (aka the historic Battle of Armageddon) have been first of all the Catholics of Greater Syria. In terms of actual power relations the Catholics (and especially our elite Nationalist formations) are doing quite well, thank you very much.
This lack of alternative non-Catholic elites is the power situation in which the Roman, French and German Republics fell, in which Julius Caesar, Napoleon and Adolf Hitler rose to the supreme Roman power. Thus the Roman and Holy Roman Empires were born; thus Christendom was born and has gone steadily forwards through the centuries. Catholics have never won the popularity contest; we have invariably achieved State power because our elite is the best, and beyond compare, actually. So this is the worst of times for timid Catholic laymen, but the best of times for every layman with the sense to appreciate a good opportunity when it is there to be taken -- which is exactly what the Catholic layman exists to do.Is this terrorism? No! It is the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and none other.
