History Repeating Itself
The following is by Kevin Straub. Kevin is an astute student on what is transpiring in the world today. Because of willful ignorance and indifference because of that ignorance, history always repeats itself and new generations repeat the errors of their progenitors. Ron
“As I've been saying, WATCH these ideas grow. Ahh, the utopian dream is being sold once again. I did not live through any of the wars and revolutions (except the later part of the hippy movement, being a teenager in the 70's). But I am learning to see in the modern cultural, social, political, and religous environment those same things that transpired in previous times, which lead to despotism and tyranny.
Look at the language, and study the modern doublespeak and doublethink. (Have you ever heard things like "we must give up some liberties to protect our freedoms?") This is real, people! This all happened before. But we won't know that if we don't read and study. No time? Make time!
Some catch words and phrases to consider:
"real needs of every human," (hearkens to the "felt needs" of the Purpose-Driven movement)
"search for the common good" "dramatic imbalances" (laws are getting more "balanced" now -- i.e., they are tipping the scale away from individual rights and freedoms and favoring the agenda of the globalists, who try and make you believe that the balancing is for the good of society at large)
"fully human" the philosophy behind this catch-phrase is that we cannot live a fulfilled life until there is full unity of church and state; such a happy life comes only in the New World Order. Roger Williams suffered for opposing this idea and it is he who laid the foundation principles that govern the free world in separation of church and state. The "fully human" promise of the papacy is a complete lie.
“ending poverty by "raising all peoples" economically. This is an idea that is sweeping up religous people by capitalizing on their desire to do the works of Jesus and minister to the poor and needy. Little is it realized that this is a tool employed by the religio-political globalists.
"stable peace for all" . . .when they are saying "Peace and safety. . .comes sudden destruction."
"economic development" within a "culture of solidarity" that should be promoted by Catholics in public office is again the furtherance of the aims of communitarian law, which purports to be for the good of all but is none other than jackboot fascism under the guise of a happy face.
this list by no means exhaustive; every line of the Vatican's philosophies is charged with globalist, New World Order agenda.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THESE THINGS WHEN YOU HEAR THEM IN YOUR CHURCH! KS
Pope: Globalization Needs Solidarity
VATICAN CITY, MAY 21, 2007 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI says that in today's globalized economy, there is no true development without solidarity.
On Friday and Saturday the Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice Foundation invited some 350 experts to the Vatican to discuss "The Growing Role of Emerging Countries in Global Competition: Economic, Social and Cultural Consequences." The Pope received them in audience Saturday.
The lay foundation was created in 1993 by Pope John Paul II to promote the social doctrine of the Church in professional and business sectors.
Citing John Paul II's encyclical "Centesimus Annus," Benedict XVI noted: "Development must not be understood solely in economic terms, but in a way that is fully human.
"It is not only a question of raising all peoples to the level currently enjoyed by the richest countries, but rather of building up a more decent life through united labor, of concretely enhancing every individual's dignity and creativity, as well as his capacity to respond to his personal vocation, and thus to God's call."
This message, the Holy Father explained, was already present 40 years ago in Pope Paul VI's encyclical "Populorum Progressio."
Benedict XVI said: "Attention to the real needs of the human being, respect for the dignity of every person, a sincere search for the common good are inspired principles that are good to keep in mind when planning a nation's development.
"Unfortunately, however, this does not always happen. Today's globalized society is filled with dramatic imbalances."
During the conference it was noted that China and India are experiencing economic growth, but that growth does not correspond mathematically to widespread social, cultural and economic development for the entire population.
The Holy Father said, "When we consider the sustained increase of taxes on economic growth, when we stop and analyze the problems linked to modern progress, not excluding environmental damage and irresponsible consumption of natural and environmental resources, it is evident that only a globalization that is attentive to the needs of solidarity can ensure an authentic future for humanity and a stable peace for all."
The Pope asked Catholics, in particular those involved in applying the norms of social doctrine in public life, to promote "the culture of solidarity and to favor an economic development that is sensitive to the expectations of individuals and peoples."
He added, "Only by weaving the three threads of development together -- economic, social and human -- can a free and just society be born."
