There are secular powers in this world, and they are finding that their message is not getting through. At all. It is as tired as Facebook, as any Gen Z kid will tell you, is for the wrinklies, And it shoudl be for no one
Because the young have seen that their elders hears are hardened, and they don't want to be like that.
In other words, VIVA was a socialist propaganda tool designed to rot the minds of young women with the seductive siren calls of feminism, having lots of stuff and consequence free sex. How refreshing then to discover that the young Dutch women of today have no use for this poison.
The socialists attempt to put a positive spin on this, however.
‘That discussion is now being conducted by young women in a different way and the number of subscriptions has been falling dramatically in the last few years. We are left with no other choice than to stop,’ magazines director Joyce Nieuwenhuijs told the Telegraaf.
Just how this discussion continues in a different way is not explained. Most probably because it is not happening to an extent that it can be made profitable. I have had some interactions with Dutch women of the 18-24 year range and I have been struck in my conversations with them at how much they both welcome any type of anti-woke talk and utterly reject the prevailing feminist mantras. It seems that they want to get married, raise families and work for their husbands rather than a corporation. How revolutionary.
Adam gives me hope. But for the older generations there is one thing that will shake them: and that is the power of God. God will remove their security. Over the weekend, we had more floods: there were tornadoes in suburb I grew up in, and our leaders call this global warming and are therefore taxing utes and subsidizing e vehicles.
God will destroy what they have confidence. If the people have been trained to have confidence in the state, he will destroy that idol.
For all will be placed under his feet.
14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh's heart is hardened; he refuses to let the people go. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning, as he is going out to the water. Stand on the bank of the Nile to meet him, and take in your hand the staff that turned into a serpent. 16 And you shall say to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, sent me to you, saying, “Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness.” But so far, you have not obeyed. 17 Thus says the Lord, “By this you shall know that I am the Lord: behold, with the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water that is in the Nile, and it shall turn into blood. 18 The fish in the Nile shall die, and the Nile will stink, and the Egyptians will grow weary of drinking water from the Nile.”’” 19 And the Lord said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, their canals, and their ponds, and all their pools of water, so that they may become blood, and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, even in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.’”
20 Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded. In the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants he lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, and all the water in the Nile turned into blood. 21 And the fish in the Nile died, and the Nile stank, so that the Egyptians could not drink water from the Nile. There was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. 22 But the magicians of Egypt did the same by their secret arts. So Pharaoh's heart remained hardened, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said. 23 Pharaoh turned and went into his house, and he did not take even this to heart. 24 And all the Egyptians dug along the Nile for water to drink, for they could not drink the water of the Nile.
13 Now when the south wind blew gently, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, they weighed anchor and sailed along Crete, close to the shore. 14 But soon a tempestuous wind, called the northeaster, struck down from the land. 15 And when the ship was caught and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along. 16 Running under the lee of a small island called Cauda, we managed with difficulty to secure the ship's boat. 17 After hoisting it up, they used supports to undergird the ship. Then, fearing that they would run aground on the Syrtis, they lowered the gear, and thus they were driven along. 18 Since we were violently storm-tossed, they began the next day to jettison the cargo. 19 And on the third day they threw the ship's tackle overboard with their own hands. 20 When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned.
21 Since they had been without food for a long time, Paul stood up among them and said, “Men, you should have listened to me and not have set sail from Crete and incurred this injury and loss. 22 Yet now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. 23 For this very night there stood before me an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I worship, 24 and he said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar. And behold, God has granted you all those who sail with you.’ 25 So take heart, men, for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told. 26 But we must run aground on some island.”
27 When the fourteenth night had come, as we were being driven across the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors suspected that they were nearing land. 28 So they took a sounding and found twenty fathoms. A little farther on they took a sounding again and found fifteen fathoms. 29 And fearing that we might run on the rocks, they let down four anchors from the stern and prayed for day to come. 30 And as the sailors were seeking to escape from the ship, and had lowered the ship's boat into the sea under pretense of laying out anchors from the bow, 31 Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, “Unless these men stay in the ship, you cannot be saved.” 32 Then the soldiers cut away the ropes of the ship's boat and let it go.
33 As day was about to dawn, Paul urged them all to take some food, saying, “Today is the fourteenth day that you have continued in suspense and without food, having taken nothing. 34 Therefore I urge you to take some food. For it will give you strength, for not a hair is to perish from the head of any of you.” 35 And when he had said these things, he took bread, and giving thanks to God in the presence of all he broke it and began to eat. 36 Then they all were encouraged and ate some food themselves. 37 (We were in all 276 persons in the ship.) 38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, throwing out the wheat into the sea.
What we need to note is that God will work his will.
Despite those who would blaspheme: those who bow the knee not to Christ but to the spirit of this age so their business survives. There is always a cost.
No commitment to pandering to Maori means no funding. The fund is tainted from the get go. Again, this explains the contortions Stuff is currently performing, shoving Maori this and Maori that down our throats.
So we have those who are converged with the spirit of this age defacing that which is true, noble and good. A classic example are the woke scholars infesting the Tolkein society. John Wright is useful here in his counsel.
Please do not contact these people, harass these people, challenge any of them to a duel, or ignite a thermonuclear device in their vicinity. Wrath is a deadly sin, no matter how abundantly deserved or long overdue.
The investigation of such matters rightly belongs to the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition, currently called the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Any punishments, penalties, or lingering yet sadistic and brutally inhuman tortures are matters for the secular authorities.
Despite what may seem, this is not blasphemy.
Blasphemy is any malicious or wanton reproach of God, or malicious accusation made against God or the Church with the purpose of dishonoring the divine majesty and alienating mankind from the love and reverence of God. Blasphemy must be published, that is, uttered in the presence of another party to be an offense. Mere use of profanity is not considered blasphemy.
In France, before the Revolution, it was a blasphemy also to speak against the holy virgin and the saints, to deny one’s faith, to speak with impiety of holy things, and to swear by things sacred. Spain had a similar law against uttering injuries against the Virgin Mary and the saints. Those were sane and wholesome times, not to be seen again.
Until and unless Professor Tolkien is canonized, despite the universal and ferocious sentiment of all hale and sound Men of the West, technically it is not blasphemy to utter injuries and libels against him, not even by grotesque and orkish freaks in service to the Dark Lord.
And the princes and stewards of the decayed remnant of lands not yet conquered by the Shadow have not the valor and wisdom of day of old, and will not lift up the sword against the malefactors. Numenor is fallen, the heroes of old are lost beneath the waves, and we will not see their like again.
We scattered few who remain no longer have freedom of speech our fathers knew, but the trolls and unclean spirits in service to Dol Guldur enjoy the privilege, and were-worm lolls on his ill-gotten heaps of dwarven gold.
I would add: acquire hard copies of the first edition of Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit while you still can. Not electronic: the woke will edit. You want physical copies.
I would add -- do not fund the press, nor watch their broadcasts, nor attend their conferences. If you have to deal with them at work OK, but if they call you, even if your life is as shipwrecked as the Vessel Paul was in was, the correct answer is NO.
They are using your suffering for clickbait: they are owned by those who fund them. Which, in NZ, is not their shareholders. They don't make money: they have no value. They are subsidized by the government, and they are the servants of the government.
Which is aligned not with Numenor, but with Mordor.
And God will work his will. May our leaders repent: may revival come. For God will destroy the false idols of this age, and the confidence the world has in them.
