Regarding the necessity of discussing the coronavirus crisis as well as militarism, the following video provides a powerful explanation for the near total capitulation of the Catholic Church to State propaganda in regards to both phenomena. The topic is discussed starting at the ten minute mark. Below the video are transcripts of the most important points from the discussion.
E. Michael Jones speaks on the crisis we face:
—“I think it’s the first time the entire world has been subjected to one form of social engineering. This is unique in all of human history. We’ve had various catastrophes in the past. They’ve always been used as an excuse to impose some form of control.”
—“I think a lot of people feel that the Church’s reaction was weak. I think they feel that way and the problem with the Church is consciousness. The Church still does not understand the term social engineering. They still don’t understand what it means, because if they did they would have a whole different view of their own history in the United States of America.”
—“They [the Church] still have a sense that America is a benign force in human history. They believe in, it’s called Americanism, it was even a heresy that was condemned by Pope Leo XIII. They don’t understand that this regime was the enemy of the Church. They don’t understand that, and so they have difficulty coping with this latest crisis, and the classic example of their failure to cope is the Jesuits in America. They have a magazine called America, which is significant, and they had articles, one article was ‘I am a scientist we must close down our churches.’ That is a complete acceptance of the dominant oligarchic narrative, complete acceptance of that, even to the point of shutting down your own worship services.”
—“If your life revolves around promoting homosexuality, you’re at war with nature. If you are at war with nature, then you feel very vulnerable. You need the big state to protect you. You don’t feel that the Church can protect you, because you’ve abandoned all of the principles that the Church is based on, including especially the moral law, which is your primary protection in life because it tells you how to act. That’s the problem with the Church. The Church, to make a long story short, has internalized the commands of its oppressors.”
—“I think the main problem is Americanism…. I think that America after World War Two became a global power and the Achilles heel of the Catholic Church is always reliance on princes ….”
—“We’re now in a position where the Church has to separate itself from the American Empire because the American Empire has become the main enemy, not just of the Church, but of the world. It is the main source of chaos in the world right now.”
—“What is the American Empire based upon and it turns out it’s science and because it’s based on science they can operate in contact with ultimate reality and so what you saw here was the Church completely capitulating to that understanding. It’s implicit in that article that I told you about in America. ‘I am a scientist therefore we must close our churches.’ Well if you’re a scientist, I can’t argue with you. You have absolute truth on your side. What am I supposed to say? And so the bishops just throw up their hands and they say, well, we’ll do whatever the scientists tell us, and so you have this ridiculous spectacle of people wearing face masks in church, they’re 6 feet apart. I just went, they just reopened the churches here. It’s enough to make a grown man cry.”
