PlayerWhile it’s true we are in end times — have been for two thousand years — contemporary man is less prepared than ever to meet his last (divine) end in the consummation of human history, because he has broken the right order that should reign within himself as well as between himself and other men and all creatures.

RAW17The American way of activism — featuring individuals in despair, driven by a peculiar admixture of aims, seeking justice (vengeance) and identity in their struggle for rights, while at the same time rebelling against truth and life itself — was on full display in the fulminations of opposing, yet similar, rebel groups in Charlottesville.
