In the video at the end of this post, Michael Matt exposes the connections between the secular efforts to bring about a one world order and the infiltration of the Church by that same "spirit of the antichrist." It's well worth the 20 minutes spent watching.
I'm re-reading 1984 at present and it is chilling to realize how close we are to the reign of Big Brother vs. the reign of Christ the King. When you hear the expression, "the brotherhood of man," ask yourself what those who call for this brotherhood of "love" really have in mind. In the world of 1984, language was inverted and often meant the exact opposite. The Ministry of Love was the organization responsible for torturing and murdering those who committed "thoughtcrime," "facecrime," and refused to embrace "doublespeak" which required believing two opposite ideas simultaneously. At the Ministry of Truth, lies abounded. History was altered daily to fit the policy of the moment. Isn't this what we are seeing from Democrats on a regular basis? As the 1984 mottos stated, "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength."
We are living in the 1984 world and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents the "thought police." She attacks all those who believe in the America of our grandparents. She is the icon for the party of Big Brother that encourages social media giants (YouTube, Twitter, Google, Facebook), all of which are rabidly leftist, to suppress opposing ideas as hate speech and restrict the reach of conservative groups like Prager U. The left cheers for the censorship of all views opposing their agenda.
If you take Prager University as an example of targeted speech, you can see why the left wants to censor and shut them up so badly. Visit their website, Sixty percent of their viewers are under 35. God help the "progressive" agenda if millennials wise up and reject their lies! The left's bias is so blatant and pervasive that media giants ignore violent threats against conservatives while conservatives are blocked for innocuous "violations" of their "standards."
Don't underestimate the enemy. He prowls about the world like a ravenous lion. He also often wears the mask of compassion and concern for others. We need to recognize the conspiracy of evil being directed by Satan that includes evil people in both the Church and the state. Conspiracy means "to breathe together." It doesn't require bad men meeting in underground bunkers to plan world domination to be a conspiracy. It simply requires many different groups and people to embrace the evil mind of Lucifer who plants ideas of a world "Utopia" that can be brought about by men (and women) like those leading the left.
Faithful Catholics are called to work for the reign of Christ the King! There will NEVER be a worldly Utopia united under one-world religion. There will never be "peace" as the world defines it. Satan is called the "prince of this world." How can the battle not rage until Christ returns?
Pope Francis who says God "wills" the diversity of religions trivializes the sacrifice of the martyrs who devoted their lives to the conversion of those following false religions and embracing heresies. He chooses friends and allies who are enemies of Christ and his Church. All one has to do is look at his actions as he elevates the worst members of the hierarchy to positions of power while he punishes and sidelines those who defend Christ's truth.
Let us pray and make novenas seeking the intercession of all the courageous souls who met gruesome deaths for refusing to abandon the one true faith, that faith that is under daily assault.
Viva Cristo Rey!
