American Culture Of Ignorance Of Knowledge

In post war era America has gradually grown up a serious problem of ignorance of knowledge. This problem of ignorance of knowledge has now become the cultural tradition in the nation on all levels. In post war era in the postmodern era American schools and colleges have failed to teach and train their students how to accept knowledge, how to gather knowledge, how to love knowledge, how to preserve knowledge, how to carefully use knowledge. Today's matured citizens who were yesterday's school students, now often falter in recalling history lessons, pointing out geographical location of a country or a continent. They don't recollect the political ideology of a certain politician previously told in news, they can't differentiate between a far right nationalist political party and a left leaning democratic party with socialist policies.

It's not only a socio-political problem, it's also an economic problem, for people don't know if capitalism is perfect for the long lasting economic policies of the country, or socialism is the solution of the socio-economic situation of the society. It has its roots in the weak education system of America, which has been going on in the country for decades, if not centuries. American political system has completely taken over the education system through its legalised directives which imply that, Socialism, Marxism, Communism, Racism, Social Justice, Foreign History, are completely forbidden subjects in America. No school shall have syllabus on these subjects to be studied by the children in the classes. These students are weak in English, History and Geography also. They often falter in spelling a word properly, they can not remember a date in history, they can not point out the geographical location of a country on the map.

The impact of weak education system has been on the Christian communities also. Most of the Christians of postmodern era irrespective of sect and denomination, falter in recognizing the scriptures from their Bible, are incapable of understanding a nuanced paragraph or a sentence explaining a doctrine of the faith. They falter in understanding the interpretation of a verse or a paragraph from the scriptures of their Bible. Christians often judge other Christians of other sect, and of their own sect. They are hostile towards other religions, people of other religions, cultures, races, nations, and languages. These Christians don't understand properly other religions, people of other religions, cultures, races, nations, and languages. Christians don't help the oppressed and the people in need much, rather they get engaged in politics in the Church, right infront of the priest, and it's also the far right nationalistic politics, which prefers racial superiority and traditionalism.

In many schools the Theory of Evolution has not been taught to the children, and some other scientific subjects have been ignored to be taught also. The far right politics has infiltrated the academic institutions so deep that books on race history, and colonial history have been removed from both the syllabus and school libraries also. If this trend keeps going on for long in America, then there are chances that this nation will soon become a capitalist, far right land of uneducated farmers and labourers who would not know whom to vote for their own social and economic welfare.

Communism And The Social Welfare

Communism is the movement by the labours for their rights. Before that in the post early industrial revolution era there were no particular rights to the labour class as there was no aegis of a caring administration under a democratic government. As the idea of a democratic nation through election of government was not that popular yet. Monarchy in the most countries was not efficient enough to take care of the welfare of the labour class who were getting exploited by the rich upper class for more profit at the expense of lower rate of daily wages. The economic study of Marx on capitalism put forth the possible remedies to the exploitation of firm owners and the upper class in the form of socialist 'Marxist' economy which included 'Communism' as the economic and political policy for the welfare of all the people of the lower middle class and the lower class. With the progress in the democratic states like America and France, Marx put his hope in the system of democratic governments that they would listen to the communist labours and would take care of their welfare with appropriate political and economic policies to protect them from the exploitation of careless firm owners and the upper class of the society.

Empowering Democracy

To ensure a functioning democratic nation it's important to first defund the political parties. After defunding the political parties, it's essential to separate these political parties from the religious organisations.

Capitalism and communism both coexist in many nations. They make a perfect economic environment when they function together for the society and the nation. N**ism came to Europe for they were afraid of communism.

Marxism Versus Nationalism

If you want to understand the difference between Hitler's writings and Karl Marx's writings, you have to understand what Hitler's book did to the society in Germany, and what Karl Marx's ideas did to the modern society. Why do you think America hates socialism and communism? To protect the capitalism and its neoliberal practices of less investment and more profit.

Atomic Force And Its Implications

There are various types of forces in the universe which either create or destroy. The Big Bang had the forces which created elements. The Antimatter has the forces which annihilate the matter. Atom Bomb acts in the similar way to the Antimatter, which, if comes into contact with the matter, the fusion occurs. Then it reacts to the matter. And it annihilates all the matter surrounding it. Including the gases which we inhale to exist. There are ten countries at present which possess the Atom Bomb. Among these ten countries seven are Asian countries.

1. America
2. Russia
3. China
4. India

Capitalism, Socialism, Communism

Capitalism, Socialism, Communism are three different types of economy which function and affect the society and the nation differently. Here, it is to be made clear that communism is the economic strategy which has never been used politically. If you read the history of the left regimes throughout the modern history, you would never find a single completely communist nation. From Lenin to modern China, except N**i regime of Germany, every nation had been or has been autocratic regime under the false cover of communism or socialism. N**i regime of Germany was never socialist, and they were first to persecute the communists regularly. Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Paul Pot, Fidel Castro, Vladimir Putin, Xi Xinping, Kim Jong Un, every political institute is autocratic under the name of communism or socialism. It is the political systems which use communism to cover up their autocratic fascism just like capitalist nations use the terms democratic nation, free world, to cover up their far right nationalist racism and communalism, so that other nations would not arise their voices against them.

Isolation Of Intellectualism

The present age we are living in is the age in which Intellectualism has been isolated. For how long, we do not know. But why would society isolate Intellectualism? To know the present situation of Intellectualism we have to understand it's journey from the beginning. The journey of Intellectualism can be divided into four parts. They are:

1. The Genesis Of Intellectualism
2. The Evolution Of Intellectualism
3. The Conflict Of Intellectualism
4. The Isolation Of Intellectualism

There are two New World Orders. First one is the present age of democratic and republic nations on earth which are the political manifestations of the rule of the people. Second one is the proposed idea of the far right political parties, their supporters, and far right satanic covens who want to establish the New World Order of far right oligarchic or plutocratic governments with radical societal norms on earth.

What is the difference between MK Ultra and American educational institutions? The answer is, there's not much difference. MK Ultra is forced, educational institutions are subtle. But their goal is same. It is to brainwash the pupil against all those ideas and ideologues who are antithetical to the American values. American values are Capitalism, Nationalism, Social Darwinism, Anti Intellectualism.

Before internet there was Public Access TV. On public access tv we would sometimes see weird videos or sound effects, which would make no sense, and they would creep us out. When internet came, and became widely available on personal computers, cyber cafes, and later on smartphones, some other types of videos or visual and sound effects became popular on internet. They were different in presentation, but not new. These visual and sound effects are known as, ASMR, ARG, and AGRG. What do these terms mean? Let us see.

ASMR: Alternate Sound and Motion Recreation (Scientific term: Autonomous Sound Meridian Response) (CSMR)

ARG: Alternate Reality Game (CR)

AGRG: Augmented Reality Game (CR)

These visual and sound effects can be classified into two categories, Public Entertainment (PE), and, Private Entertainment (PVTE). Private Entertainment can be further classified into two categories, Available Private Entertainment (APVTE), and, Limited Access Private Entertainment (LAPVTE).

The Decline Of Civilization

It is the age we have reached which we can call the age of the decline of human civilization. It is the age when the civilization as we know it, will end. The journey of civilization is a long process, which can be divided into four parts:

1. The Birth Of Civilization
2. The Growth Of Civilization
3. The Conflict Of Civilization
4. The Decline Of Civilization

1. The Birth Of Civilization
There was a moment in the time when the human civilization was born into small tribes, which were scattered across the continents. First they were individual families, then they gathered to establish a tribe, then they elected their tribal leader, who would lead them through laws, and with the help of wisdom of the elders.

2. The Growth Of Civilization
It was the age when the tribes grew their own cultural traits, such as, cuisines, dress, languages, art, historical tradition, beliefs, rituals.

3. The Conflict Of Civilization
It was the age when the tribes felt the urge to expand as larger tribes, which they found to be difficult without merging other tribes. For this process they decided to have talks and discussions between the tribe leaders. Some tribe leaders agreed and they merged their tribes and become nation, but some disagreed remained apart as distinct tribes as earlier they used to be. Trades grew and they tied two different nations together in trade relations. Who were disagree they walked apart and established relations and merged with other tribes, but some of these tribes went to conflict and wars happened. Wars led to conquest of lands and private valuables.

4. The Decline Of Civilization
It is the age when some individuals came up with ideas which were radical (which were as old as the present ideas which which were also traditional for being born in ancient times of the begining of the human civilization and practiced through the ages), different in approach and applied them into societies to establish new societies, with new laws, with new culture, with new identity as a nation. And with new family values different from the values which were regarded highly earlier in the families. But as these ideas were radical, the societies based on these got detached from their older values, traditions, cultures, and identities, and as a nation they began to see a decline of the human civilization, which was triggered by the rejecting of the societies of their own people who held firmly to their older values, older traditions, older cultures, and older identities, who formed their own societies of old values, and came to a conflict with their counterparts to establish a reformed and reidentified nation. But as the radical ideas were as old as the traditional ideas, the conflict only grew, and grew harder and turned out to be as destructive as an electric slicer. Which leaves no survivor to the home earth.

POPE FRANCIS AND THE CULT OF TOXIC TRADITIONALISTS

BACKGROUND AND BUILD UP

July 16, 2021 was a great day for the Roman Rite and for the legacy of the Second Vatican Council. Finally, after years of accommodating those who dislike or actually reject the liturgical reforms of the Council, the Catholic Church’s highest authority took a definitive step to re-establish the reformed rites as normative for the whole Latin Rite Church, without exception.

Pope Francis, in his motu proprio Traditionis custodes, not only firmly abrogated Pope Benedict’s motu proprio Summorum pontificum (2007) which had “freed” the older rites, allowing them to be celebrated by any priest at any time, he also declared and established that the reformed liturgy is “the unique lex orandi [law of prayer]” of the Church today.

This puts an end to the bifurcation of the Roman Rite that Pope Benedict endorsed when he wrote Summorum pontificum. He invented the term “Extraordinary Form” to refer to the older rites, and called the reformed rites the “Ordinary Form.” The Roman Rite had never existed in two forms at the same time, yet that is what he envisioned. He urged the bishops to trust that these “two forms” of the Roman Rite would peacefully coexist and enrich one another. After thirteen years however, it became evident that this dream was not going to materialize.

Clearly, some individuals find serene enjoyment in attending Mass according to the older rites and have no other agenda. But, overall, opening up more space for the older rites has deepened conflict in the Church and led to politicization of the Eucharist. This was always a danger. Traditionalist movements—both those that went into schism, as did the followers of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and those who remained in communion with Rome—have long been associated with hard-right and authoritarian political regimes. Everything from the effort to restore the monarchy in France (a hopeless cause), to suppression of the indigenous peoples of Brazil (an ongoing problem), has flown under the flag of Catholic traditionalism. Pope Benedict did not believe the danger was there, but it was.

Opposition to Pope Francis has also found a base in traditionalist communities. His teaching on marriage and family, his call for pastoral accompaniment, and especially his commitment to ecological responsibility and economic justice, have been virulently opposed in such circles. It is no accident that the American Cardinal Raymond Burke, one of the pope’s most public antagonists, is a worldwide chaplain to Catholic traditionalist communities, or that the Austrian who threw the Pachamama statue into the Tiber during the Amazon Synod was a traditionalist, or that when the disgruntled former Vatican diplomat, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, tried to unseat Pope Francis, he allied himself with traditionalists.

Even beyond the scandal of a series of attacks on a reigning pope, a political struggle over the enduring legacy of an ecumenical council has been hanging in the balance. Vatican II’s opening to the world—its commitment to ecumenism, interfaith dialogue, and discerning the signs of the times—has been sharply criticized and rejected by advocates for the older rites.

Pope Francis has, no doubt, been hearing for a long time about such tensions and difficulties, but a turning point was reached when he commissioned a worldwide survey of bishops to evaluate Summorum pontificum. The results of the survey were deeply troubling, compelling him to act, he said in a letter accompanying his motu proprio.

Opening up more space for the older rites has deepened conflict in the Church and led to politicization of the Eucharist.
The actual responses have not been made public. Only one document has been leaked: the summary report from France. It was fair-minded, yet also critical. Crucially, it observed that the goals of Pope Benedict’s project—reconciliation and enrichment—had not been reached. In a nice turn of phrase, the French bishops reported that those who desired the older rites were “pacified,” but not reconciled.

We’ve certainly seen harmful results in the United States, which has the world’s highest proportion of locations offering the older rites. Instead of promoting greater harmony with and closeness to the universal Church, broad availability of the older rites has been used as an opportunity to create a “Church within a Church,” a community apart from the mainstream. Dubious pastoral practices have attended this development, such as using the Baltimore Catechism instead of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, or reading the Douay-Reims Bible in preference to modern Scripture translations. It is not just a matter of lace and Latin. A reactionary thought world is being cultivated as well.

One can hardly overstate the noise that freeing the older rites has introduced into liturgical discussions, even though the actual number of traditionalists remains small. A constant stream of criticism has poured forth from traditionalist enclaves challenging liturgical decisions flowing from the reform, such as use of the vernacular, Communion in the hand, women in the sanctuary, and the priest facing the people at Eucharist. This noisy opposition grabs attention and causes distraction. A graver problem is that some adherents of the older rites have sown doubts about the validity of the liturgical reform overall, and propagate the erroneous view that the reformed liturgy represents a betrayal of orthodoxy and a departure from “the true Church.” Rather than a softening, there has been a hardening of ideological opposition to the Council as a whole. This is no trivial matter. When someone attacks the liturgical reform, they attack the Council.

This situation is getting worse, too. Leading voices among traditionalists in America lately have totally abandoned Benedict’s project of “mutual enrichment.” There can be no real peace with the newer liturgical forms, they argue, because the reformed rite is fundamentally flawed, a modernist creation. It is not even a rite, they claim, but a mere “construction.”

In this context, Pope Francis’s move is one of great strategic importance. It corrects the balance. It safeguards the integrity of the Council. It decisively rejects frivolous claims (“this isn’t what the Council wanted”; “the reformed liturgy is irreverent and unorthodox”), and calls everyone back to one common path. It will not eliminate political conflicts or disagreements in the Church, but it deprives traditionalists of the possibility of using the Eucharist as a hub of resistance to the Council and its legitimate implementation.

Some have charged that Pope Francis acted autocratically in abrogating Summorum pontificum, but actually his actions have been far more collegial than those his predecessors took in expanding availability of the older rites. A brief look at the history reveals this. In 1980, when Pope John Paul II was considering giving an indult for celebration of the Tridentine Mass, he took a survey of the world’s bishops. Most expected it to cause division and were opposed. Only 1.5 percent were in favor. Nevertheless, he went ahead with it. He was hoping to effect a reconciliation with Archbishop Lefebvre and his followers who had broken with the Church because they would not accept Vatican II. This outreach proved unsuccessful.

When John Paul considered whether to broaden this permission in 1988, he didn’t ask the bishops. Instead, he consulted with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, headed by then-Cardinal Josef Ratzinger. Once again motivated by hope for the healing a the wound caused by schism (which is why the motu proprio is called Ecclesia Dei afflicta), he expanded access further. Still, there was no reconciliation with Lefebvre’s group, the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX).

When Benedict XVI issued Summorum pontificum in 2007, he conducted no survey, but it appears that some bishops did voice doubts and try to dissuade him. He overruled them. History repeated itself; the overtures to the SSPX were again rebuffed. He said (in 2007) that the bishops could evaluate how Summorum pontificum was going in three years. But no evaluation was sought until 2020 when Francis sent out his survey.

If you want to find traditional liturgy, here it is—in the reformed rites.
Once Pope Francis consulted with the bishops of the world, he saw it all clearly. It was time to put his foot down. Accordingly, as of July 16, 2021, there is no more “Extraordinary Form” and “Ordinary Form.” There is but one form of the Roman Rite: the liturgy as it was reformed by decree of the Second Vatican Council. Pope Francis reaffirmed what his predecessors have also been saying since the Council: This reform is an expression of the living Catholic tradition.

Tradition is not the preservation of old things, it is a vital reality, guided by the Holy Spirit working through the Church and its leadership. Francis is saying, if you want to find traditional liturgy, here it is—in the reformed rites. He has not outlawed the older rites altogether. The liturgical books antecedent to the reform may still be used to celebrate the liturgy (according to the 1962 edition) but under limited circumstances, not in parishes, and not at the whim of individual priests. It is up to the local bishop to decide when and where these liturgies may be celebrated, and by whom. Pope Francis has made it clear that the bishops are not to give this permission to anyone who challenges the legitimacy and orthodoxy of the reform or who rejects the authority of the pope and bishops. Any priest ordained after July 16, 2021 who wants to celebrate the older rites must obtain permission from his bishop and from Rome.

The bishop also gets to decide how long such celebrations may continue. Several American bishops have already been responding to Traditionis custodes as though they have carte blanche to continue use of the older rites indefinitely. This is not true. Francis has specifically said that their job is to guide these communities that currently follow the older rites to a state of mind and soul where they can celebrate the mainstream liturgy of the Church with full, heartfelt assent. This is the goal—not pacification, not perpetuation of the older rites, but rather the embrace of the reformed liturgy as a “unitary expression of the Roman Rite.” The bishop, as a custodian of tradition, is obliged to exercise his authority in concert with the Holy See, and this means walking in the direction outlined by Pope Francis.

Most Catholics never objected to Benedict’s initiative because, as they viewed it, it pertained to a small group of people and wouldn’t affect them personally. In an age when individualism and consumer choice seem like the normal state of affairs, it didn’t seem outlandish to provide boutique alternatives for different liturgical tastes, even if this included a taste for a liturgy that had been superseded by a lawful reform called for by an ecumenical council. But liturgy is not just a matter of personal taste. It is a matter of faith and obedience. It belongs to the collective, which is why it is enshrined in law and subject to authority.

It’s worth remembering that establishing the reformed liturgy as the “unitary expression of the Roman Rite” does not in any way compromise the Church’s commitment to inculturation, as Swiss liturgical scholar Martin Klöckener has rightly noted. Inculturation is an entirely different question, because in every case the reformed Roman Rite is the basis of inculturation.

Pope Francis wants to advance the liturgical reforms of Vatican II. His recent decision to open instituted ministries of lectors and acolytes to women gives evidence of this, as does his emphasis on the Word of God, mystagogy, and liturgical catechesis. Through his openness to inculturation, his decision concerning washing women’s feet on Holy Thursday, his return of authority over liturgical translations to the bishops, and even by restricting private Masses at St. Peter’s Basilica in favor of concelebration, he has pressed forward with the reform.

The last surviving Italian bishop who participated in the Second Vatican Council is the retired bishop of Ivrea, Luigi Bettazzi, age 98. He is also the last surviving signer of the “pact of the catacombs” (a pledge made by 40 council fathers to embrace evangelical poverty, humility, charity, justice, and witness). Four days after Francis promulgated his motu proprio, and surely with these events in mind, he said, “We are halfway across the ford, but let’s remember that we still have to cross it.” The ford is the full implementation of Vatican II.

STAY IN THE BOAT (MY 2 CENTS)

Many traditional Catholics are already thinking of leaving Communion with Rome because of Pope Francis' new Motu Proprio. Why though? Was your Catholic faith SOLELY based on the Extraordinary Form? Are you less of a Catholic when attending the Ordinary Form? Do you not receive the same Jesus Christ in the Eucharist celebrated in the Ordinary Form?

I'm also a passionate and devout traditional Catholic and I am extremely sad about this recent news, but it is not proper and just to separate yourself from the Body of Christ just because you disagree with the Vicar of Christ.

May I remind you all that worshipping God in the Holy Mass is our Obligation, but our Mission is outside the church walls. If your frequent attendance to the TLM is what's keeping you Catholic then you never understood what a Catholic is supposed to be, and ** I THINK ** this is one of the reasons why Pope Francis added restrictions to the Traditional Latin Mass.

The Pope wants every Catholic to be united because that's basically part of our Christian faith. And as the Supreme Pontiff, he has the right to change any policies or laws introduced by his predecessors if he sees this fit.

Even before Pope Francis' pontificate, I have already seen how traditional communities (mostly the laity) lack the willingness and passion to fulfill the duties of a Catholic Christian; to preach the Gospel, to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to shelter those without homes, to visit the sick, the imprisoned, and to bury the dead. Even before Pope Francis became Pope he was doing these things.

There is nothing wrong with being a Traditional Catholic, what's wrong is that you limit yourself to just that and forget the other responsibilities of being a Catholic.

You have all the right to be angry, upset, and be disappointed with Pope Francis. It's part of the Catholic faith. But it will always be a stupid idea to jump out of the boat because of an irrational trust with the captain, by doing so you're proving to be not different from the Protestants.

Before you even think of leaving the Church, separating yourself from the Pope, ask yourself first if you were already a good Catholic to begin with. Have you lived your Catholic life the way Pope Francis has, even before he became Pope? Will the Saints do the same?

WAS THE TRIDENTINE RITE BECOMING A CULT OF DIVISIVENESS

(A Personal Experience)

Many years ago, when I first discovered the Traditional Latin Mass, I went to a nearby convent here in Parañaque because it was, at the time, the only place in the city where the TLM was celebrated. I was so excited because, before that, I was only observing and studying the TLM online and now I will be able to attend one!

The Mass finally started. It was beautiful, I'm finally hearing Gregorian Chants! It was all spiritually majestic and nourishing. I had trouble understanding the Priest during the Homily, primarily because of his accent but I still understood what he was trying to say. After the Mass, I left quickly because of work and didn't had the time to get to know the community more. But I kept coming back for almost a year and within those times I was getting to know the community better.

During those times of personally knowing the community made me realize that there's something seriously wrong. I still attend the Mass nevertheless because I do not attend the Mass because of the community, but because of Jesus. They never strike me as a schismatic group because the Mass was being celebrated in a well-known religious convent, and the priest was a member of this religious order, however, when I asked the people what attracted them to the TLM their answers were the same ones a radical traditionalist Catholic would say; Vatican 2 is heretical and false, the Novus Ordo is a Protestant Mass , the current Pope is not the real Pope, etc.

One time, before the Mass for the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, I saw some people reading the ungodly "Book of Truth" by Maria Divine Mercy. I asked them why they were reading that, I informed them it was heretical and contrary to Catholic teaching. They look suprised and then suddenly asked me if I really believe that Pope Francis is the true Pope. They even said that the same priest even endorsed the book, however, I was not able to find any proof of this.

It was absolutely horrifying because I'm surrounded by individuals whom I do not share the same sentiments towards the TLM, nor hold the same beliefs as taught by the Church yet they still profess to be Catholic.

The priest began to worry me too. I remember during the Feast of the Divine Mercy, he said in homily that why is the Church celebrating something that is heretical, it was banned then he blamed Vatican 2 for approving it.

I tried to talk to the priest but all I got was a very confusing answer. I tried to educate some of the people there but they too refused to listen. I wanted to leave that place for good but I love the TLM so much that I still went there for a few months, I decided not to talk to the people anymore and stop listening to the priest when he says something heretical.

When my work schedule finally changed, I saw this as a sign and I was able to attend the TLM in Sto. Domingo. The long travel was worth it.

There, I discovered that the community was different, there were still a few who held the same toxic beliefs but most of those I knew didn't. To my surprise, many of the regular attendees there were Catholic Apologists who were very much aware of the toxic culture brewing in certain traditional communities. They are also active in social media, aside from defending the Church from anti-Catholic rhetoric, they were also defending the Church from radical traditionalists.

This is one of the challenges we must face now. We cannot have Liturgical Unity if many of the traditional communities within the Church refuse to educate themselves and correct their misguided and irrational beliefs.

If we really want the Traditional Latin Mass in our parishes then we have to prove to our Bishops that we deserve it, meaning our community must not become a seedbed for a cult of toxic tradition but rather a community that is of the same mind and heart with the Church while humbly promoting the Church's greatest treasures.

So let's pray for discernment and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in Jesus name. Amen
