We are no longer a nation – it’s time to restructure

We are no longer a nation, and that is what's so painful. That's why this is so ugly. Historians years from now will mark the end of America, not as a point in time in our future, but one in our past. We exist today as warring clans who really do not want to live… Continue reading We are no longer a nation – it’s time to restructure

Heresy of Americanism

It is due to Catholic and Royal France that there is a United States in the first place.

It is due to Catholic and Royal France that there is a United States in the first place. We were taught that our Founding Fathers were the bravest of the brave, who selflessly, with blood-bandaged feet and bloodied faces, shed the shackles of serfdom for freedom. But the truth is, without the Catholic and Royal… Continue reading It is due to Catholic and Royal France that there is a United States in the first place.

I’m not so sure I am totally opposed to Ocasio-Cortez

I'm not so sure that I am totally opposed to Ocasio-Cortez. She is the Reactionary Left, while Trump is the Reactionary Right. Most tend to focus on the Left and Right part of that equation. I focus on the Reactionary commonality. The goal for me is not so much Republicans winning over Democrats, I belong… Continue reading I’m not so sure I am totally opposed to Ocasio-Cortez

Royal Hearts

The Royal Heart’s abbreviated testament of consecration to Joan of Arc and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Royal Heart of RoyaumeFrance is committed to Joan of Arc and her mission "on earth as it is in Heaven" for the coming of the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. For the full consecration made to St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux for Christ the King and the Immaculate… Continue reading The Royal Heart’s abbreviated testament of consecration to Joan of Arc and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Critique of Marx, Royal Quips

Royal Quips: What is the Devil’s side of the story? It would be in part Marxist.

Have you ever wondered what the Devil would say if he were allowed to give his point of view on the fall of Adam and Eve and the eating of the apple from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? We always hear God's side of the story. Let's be good sports and… Continue reading Royal Quips: What is the Devil’s side of the story? It would be in part Marxist.

Critique of Marx, Royal Quips

Royal Quips: Democrats and Republicans both are Marxist at their core

This might make my "conservative" Republican friends uncomfortable. I have said for a decade that Democrats and Republicans both are liberal and only two sides of the same coin. Both believe in freedom from God as He has revealed Himself through His Holy Catholic Church. The Catholic Church is the seed of the Kingdom of… Continue reading Royal Quips: Democrats and Republicans both are Marxist at their core

Critique of Rousseau

The Royal Heart and Rousseau

I love my enemies. Or, at least I try to love my enemies, especially those who are philosophers. Jeanne-Jacques Rousseau is a good example. Reading through the first section of his Social Contract, I see much with which many Americans would agree but much with which I cannot agree. Still, I like what I see… Continue reading The Royal Heart and Rousseau

Plato's Academy

St. Joan of Arc, Plato, and Aristotle (or, St. Joan versus the American and French Revolutions)

We have two warring philosophies in Western society and perhaps in the whole world. These are the Platonic and Aristotelian paradigms (see Arthur Herman, The Cave and the Light: Plato Versus Aristotle, and the Struggle for the Soul of Western Civilization.) Our philosophical views determine how we decide what is true and therefore how we… Continue reading St. Joan of Arc, Plato, and Aristotle (or, St. Joan versus the American and French Revolutions)

Monarchy, Plato's Academy

Monarchy as the Platonic Form of the Divine Order

Monarchy properly understood is a Platonic, ultra-real Form. As Catholics, we recognize the Platonic Forms of natural philosophy as those supernaturally created by and resting eternally in the Mind of God. The Forms exist as Plato postulated, only he had no way in time and space (though we cannot be certain of this) to grasp… Continue reading Monarchy as the Platonic Form of the Divine Order

New Christendom

America is supposed to be Catholic and Royal – its destiny is to be New Christendom

As Catholics in America, we will never fully be Catholic, nor will we ever truly restore the Church, nor will we ever effectively evangelize others for the Church unless we start becoming more truly American, i.e., Catholic and Royal and the land destined to be the New Christendom through the influences of New France and… Continue reading America is supposed to be Catholic and Royal – its destiny is to be New Christendom
