Is this an invention? – The Kremlin and Eurocommunism – Suspense on the Brazilian scene

1981-04-08 – What Next ? / While a certain degree of cunning is required of the spy, much more is required of the deviator.

1939-10-15 – The Unending Conflict / The tragic danger of our time lies in false remedies lacking effective authority, remedies based on insufficient principles, remedies derived from extremisms that propose to heal the mortal suffering that afflicts us.

1945-10-14 – Communism, Property, and Family. Predictions and Denunciations / For Communists, the notion of a crime loses its raison d’être if that crime does not disturb the progress of humanity’s evolution toward happiness.

Reflections on a Cold Draft Beer

The Three Falls of Our Lord and the Three Degrees of Tiredness

1964-11-06 – How ‘Peaceful Coexistence’ Enables Russia to Invade Other Nations. A Lesson on Private Property and the Natural Law. The Freedom of the Church in the Communist State / Instead of trusting God, placing our hope in Him, and asking Him to save us from nuclear catastrophe, we trusted the word of Russians, handed over power to them, and opened the gates of our countries to them. Instead of making a pact with the thrice-holy and infinitely faithful God, asking Him to descend with His Angels visibly or invisibly to save us, we placed our trust in the powers of darkness, saying, “here are our hands, handcuff them; here are the keys to our homes, governments and institutions: keep it all. We trust in you; you will do us no harm.” Could such sin not be the cause of an atomic deluge? Would God’s mercy subject the world to nuclear catastrophe if that huge sin did not happen? Imagine a people who dare to say: “I do not know how God will operate. I do not know how He will save us. But I say NO, that is not legitimate! I trust in God and in Our Lady who assists me, in the angels and patroness saints of nations who defend me. I say NO! Let the world fall on me. I will be faithful and say NO unto death!”
