The Journal of the American Medical Association has an article titled “Addressing the Long-term Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Children and FamiliesA Report From the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.”  Regarding this article, the Richmond Times-Dispatch ran the stats from this on “Deaths among children and teens.” Notice the upsurge of suicides and other poisonings (intentional or unintentional, often unknown to even the medical examiner) during lockdowns:

The Richmond Times-Dispatch then comments on the above stats of children and teens: “Deaths of American children and teens spiked between 2019 and 2021, the result of increased car wrecks, shootings and drug overdoses, according to a Virginia Commonwealth University survey of federal data published Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.”

This is why I was warning my readers and listeners at the beginning of the lockdowns that not only were the C-19 vaccines going to kill more than C-19, but even the lockdowns were going to take more lives.  This wasn’t prophetic.  It was because I had studied communism and population-control so much.  I knew all of this was to take lives, not save them.

So what is the solution?

Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Mag writes about this, “Some of this, especially among teenage girls, can be blamed on the pandemic and the lockdowns, but this is a trend that way underway before all this and still appears to be underway… The negative though is only part of the answer. The bigger problem is that as a society we are starved of the positive. Our culture has been nuked. We have nothing aspirational worth mentioning. No art, no music, no frontiers, no religion and no future. A generation that has been told to live in digital skinner boxes is going mad.”

That is precisely is the answer to what kids need to gain purpose in life: art, music, frontiers (boundaries? exploration?) and religion.

Do you see why I harp so much on returning to real Catholic roots instead of the new religion and new liturgy invented the past 70 years?  It’s not because I grew up in tradition.  (I grew up quite a liberal Catholic.)  It’s because I believe what Karl Marx wrote: “Keep people from their history and they are easily controlled.”  Once the left got Catholics to believe it was “obedience” to stop attending the Traditional Latin Mass and hold to all the Roman traditions of their fore-fathers, they were easily controlled.  We were told “ACKSHULLY the Novus Ordo is older than the Mass of Trent, DONCHAKNOW?”  And in such lies, the leftists who infiltrated the Church perfectly fulfilled making Catholics group-think sheep to the rest of the world.  Again, Karl Marx: “Keep people from their history and they are easily controlled.”

That is why Catholics put on masks and took the vaccine at almost the same rate as the rest of the USA.  In fact, we were greatly outdone by evangelical Protestants, for at least they had their Bible and a basic prayer life not based on false-obedience to globalists and the globalist-chaplains.  But still, this is why TLM-Catholics were the least likely to take the vaccine and put on masks:  Because we knew how to trust Jesus and how to distrust communists.  Why? Because we read the old books, not the new books.

Milan Kundera once wrote:  “The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long that nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was… The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.”

This is why whatever comes after the lockdowns—whether it’s nuclear war or Traditiones Custodes 3.0 or another scamdemic or a new “synod on the synodopolis” or a new scare-tactic from the globalists—we can not live in fear.   Holding to Christ and tradition is not only going to save our souls.  It’s also going to save our bodies and our minds.  To live in the hope of Jesus Christ and to resist the lies of the world and the flesh and the devil means we do not believe what Kundera called “the new books” or “the new culture” or a “new history.”  We have strength as Catholics not only spiritually, but even psychologically when we hold to the old books, the old culture and our full rich history of the saints as Catholics.  That is our history, not the past 60 years of confusion and theological opinions.

There will be few forthcoming blogs and podcasts and videos this Spring for three reasons:  1) I am assisting my mother in what seems to be her last days on earth.  2) I was locked out of my YouTube channel for thought-crimes against the left.  3) My pro-life trial from three years ago in New Jersey is delayed until April or May 2023… All of these things seem to have piled up in a way that is far outside my control at this point.
