    Have linked an interesting book below - a powerful analysis of the current trends and proof that we are quickly heading for a global dictatorship on an Orwellian scale.


    "Mrs. Kuby is a brave warrior against ideologies that ultimately result in the destruction of man."--POPE BENEDICT XVI

    The core of the global cultural revolution is the deliberate confusion of sexual norms. It is the culmination of a metaphysical revolution as well--a shifting of the fundamental ground upon which we stand and build a culture, even a civilization. Instead of desire being subjected to natural, social, moral, and transcendent orders, the identity of man and woman is dissolved, and free rein given to the maximum fulfillment of polymorphous urges, with no ultimate purpose or meaning.

    Gabriele Kuby surveys gender ideology and LGBT demands, the devastating effects of pornography and sex-education, attacks on freedom of speech and religion, the corruption of language, and much more. From the movement's trailblazers to the post-Obergefell landscape, she documents in meticulous detail how the tentacles of a budding totalitarian regime are slowly gripping the world in an insidious stranglehold. Here on full display are the re-education techniques of the new permanent revolution, which has migrated from politics and economics to sex. Kuby's courageous work is a call to action for all well-meaning people to redouble their efforts to preserve freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and in particular the freedom of parents to educate their children according to their own beliefs, so that the family may endure as the foundation upon which any healthy society is built.

    Cardinal Caffarra wrote the forward for the book before his death. This Cardinal was a prophet for our times!! How can one ignore a prophet?

    Full text of Cardinal Caffarra's unpublished forward to Gabriele Kuby’s book The Global Sexual Revolution – The Destruction of Freedom in the Name of Freedom. Translated by Diane Montagna.

    Gabriele Kuby’s survey of the cultural landscape in the present book is a clarion call to awake from the slumber of reason that is leading to the loss of freedom and hence of ourselves. And Jesus has warned us that this, the loss of ourselves, would be the most tragic loss of all, even if we were to gain the whole world.

    As I read each page, I heard within myself the words of the deceiver of the whole world, “You will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Gen. 3:5).

    The human person has elevated himself to a position of sovereign moral authority in which “I” alone determine what is good and what is evil. This is a freedom that is literally mad: it is a freedom without logos (i.e., reason or ordering principle).

    But if this is the theoretical context (if I may put it this way) of the entire book, the work specifically examines the destruction of the last reality that stands in its way. As I will explain, the book also shows how freedom that has gone mad gradually engenders the most devastating tyrannies.

    David Hume wrote that facts are stubborn things: they stubbornly challenge any ideology. The author argues, and I think rightly, that the last barrier which this insane freedom must break down is the sexual nature of the human person in its duality of man and woman, and in its rational institution established by monogamous marriage and the family. Well today this insane reason is destroying natural human sexuality, and thus also marriage and the family. These pages, dedicated to examining this destruction, contain a rare depth of insight.

    But there is another theme that runs through the pages of this book: the work of this insane freedom has a precise strategy, for it is being directed, guided and governed on a global level. What is its strategy? That of Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, who says to Christ, “You give them freedom; I give them bread. They will follow me.” The strategy is clear: to dominate man by forming an alliance with one of his base instincts. The new Grand Inquisitor has not changed strategies. He says to Christ, “You promise joy in the wise, just and chaste exercise of sexuality; I promise pleasure without any rules. You will see that they will follow me.” The new Inquisitor enslaves through the mirage of a sexual pleasure completely deprived of any rule.

    If, as I believe, Gabriele Kuby’s analysis is one that is shared, there is only one conclusion. What Plato foresaw will come to pass: extreme freedom will lead to the gravest and most ferocious tyranny. It is no coincidence that the author has made this platonic reflection the subtext of the first chapter: a kind of key to interpreting the entire book.

    And clerics? It is not uncommon that they seem content to be the facilitators of this euthanasia of freedom. And yet, as Paul instructs us, Christ died to make us truly free.

    I hope that this great book will be read especially by those who have public responsibilities; by those who have educational responsibilities; and by the young, the first victims of the new Grand Inquisitor.

    I weep at the death of this man.:cry: It is sad that I knew nothing of him until the Dubia and now his death. As the good Cardinal Caffarra points out:

    But there is another theme that runs through the pages of this book: the work of this insane freedom has a precise strategy, for it is being directed, guided and governed on a global level.
