The following article from John Lackin of The Lumen Fidei Institute rings a chord for those who know their Irish history - we have a allowed a Trojan Horse into our land. There are many people in Ireland who labour under the illusion that they live in a democracy where power derives from the people and is given as a privilege to those who govern us. This is far from the reality that exists in Ireland. We now live in a totalitarian state. The free online dictionary defines totalitarianism as “a form of government in which the political authority exercises absolute and centralized control over all aspects of life, the individual is subordinated to the state, and opposing political and cultural expression is suppressed. They then quote the American historian Arthur M Schlesinger Jr, who said, "A totalitarian regime crushes all autonomous institutions in its drive to seize the human soul" Anyone with eyes can see that this is fast becoming true of the Ireland in which we now live. We are fed with platitudes and lies from those in power and told that we live in a democracy. But if the people happen to vote against the wishes of those in power, their vote will be ignored, and they will be asked to vote again in order to bring their vote into line with the wishes of the ruling elite. Our elected representatives are men who follow an ideological agenda which is set by a ruling class outside of Ireland. The privately-owned mainstream media becomes a mouthpiece for this foreign ruling power’s governmental agenda, and the mainstream media is also used to control our elected representatives and to crush any and all opposition to the imposed ideology. They wage an incessant propaganda war on faithful Catholics and on our families, particularly the children whom they wish to indoctrinate early in their lives, as this makes them easier to control in later life. People are seen as units of production for the economic enterprises of the ruling class, and those who cease to be productive are eventually either forced to work for the state’s economic machine or else they are eliminated from society always in the name of a false compassion and with slogans such as ‘death with dignity’, and ‘every child a wanted child’. The English author and historian Hilaire Belloc wrote about this in his essay ‘The New Paganism’. He is worth quoting at length on this, as it clearly shows us the path that the ‘new’ Ireland is on. “In the sphere of social texture the New Paganism must also inevitably and of its nature, wherever it gives its tone to society, reintroduce that status of slavery from which our civilization sprang and which only very gradually disappeared under the influence of the Christian ethic.
