Central Banking And No Child Labor: A Near Occasion of Sin for Abortion

Whenever a society adopts central banking and a prohibition on child labor, the result is a near occasion of sin for the heinous crime of abortion. These institutions are wicked on their own, but it goes a lot deeper. In this article, I intend to illustrate how these two evils have plagued America for over 100 years and are leading families into a near occasion of sin for abortion.

Central Banking & Child Labor Prohibition: Very Commie Ideas

First things first, central banking and prohibition on child labor are BOTH tenets of COMMUNISM. Don’t believe me. Read about the 10 Planks of Marxism from none other than Uncle Karl himself. Central banking is the 5th plank. Prohibition of child labor is the 10th plank. We as Catholics, conservatives, and Christians have nothing in common with communists.

Communism is the ideology of the enemies we face in the battle against child murder and Satan’s war on the nuclear family. They use the 10 Planks of Marxism as their rubric, so we better pay attention. Better yet, we should cull out any semblance of that filth from society altogether. Deus vult!

Near Occasion of Sin? Really?

How can we make the connection between the American Federal Reserve (the U.S. central bank), the abolition of child labor, and the slaughter of babies in the womb? I’ll explain but let me apply one more layer of groundwork for the analysis. I want to remind the reader about the concept of a near occasion of sin. From the Baltimore Catechism (Lesson 18 on Contrition):

“Q. 771. What do you mean by the near occasion of sin?
A. By the near occasions of sin, I mean all the persons, places, and things that may easily lead us to sin.”

Note how it says “persons, places, and things.” This leaves room for the interpretation that certain things, perhaps government and regulations, could lead people to sin. We would want to avoid and eliminate these as much as possible.

Why Central Banking and No Child Labor Are Awful

It’s rotten enough when the government taxes people out of a chance for family formation (taxation is another plank of Marxism), but what if the government discovers a far worse and clandestine way do it? The Federal Reserve does so through a backdoor tax of monetary inflation.

The Fed’s expert-bureaucrats manipulate the currency to extract the purchasing power of your money, and one of the ways they do so is by inflating the number of dollars circulating. They increase the money supply to pay down government debt when they don’t have the guts to approach the public for a tax hike. More money in circulation means the money you have becomes less valuable.

They have been doing this since 1913, which is why your money is worth so much less than it was during your grandparents’ days. Use this government resource to calculate how much a dollar is worth compared to 1913 ($1 then is like $26 now). The dollar has lost 97% of its value!

This leaves young people with a nagging temptation to contracept and abort their offspring for fear of having to feed yet another mouth with a budget that covers fewer expenses due to currency depletion. Housing, gasoline, food, healthcare, and education costs have gone through the roof because of this and it strains a family’s budget beyond sustainability (worse for single parents). All other factors held constant, ruining a family’s money will entice them be rid of so many mouths to feed. Want to save lives? End the Fed!

Child labor is vilified so much because the media has conned everyone into thinking that working children are exploited like chimney sweeps and become beggars reminiscent of Oliver Twist. This is not true. By prohibiting children from working, we’ve not only taken away their opportunity for gaining entry-level experience, but we’ve also made them an economic liability until they are old enough to legally do anything productive.

Also, when young people (especially teenage men) are barred from working, it stunts their chances of having a chance of attracting a wife early enough to have a big family. We extend childhood forever, which means nobody can get married and have kids until their mid-20’s. This prevents us from outbreeding anti-Christians who idolize childlessness. Is it any wonder why the only children conceived nowadays are by single moms who would go broke trying to raise them? This creates an incentive for abortion on so many levels.

Near Occasions or Involuntary Occasions?

Ah, you might respond “The Federal Reserve and no child labor are destructive, but we can’t do anything about them. Therefore, they are involuntary occasions.” This is a lame objection and imagine what it would be like if we took that approach to the issue of abortion itself. Imagine if we decided to stay quiet about it because we determined it to be beyond our scope of influence; impossible to remedy.

Yes, we’ve done that already too. Haven’t we?

This would almost fly for a suitable objection except for the fact that we, as Catholics, are also bound to at least OPPOSE these wicked things. Nobody in Catholic Land appears to be doing so with much fervor. As I currently see it, Catholics have not so much as educated themselves on these two evils let alone made any effort to oppose them.

Few Catholics are educated on basic economics. You won’t grasp the problem without a modicum of economic literacy. It’s yet another reason we see so many clueless, cognitively dissident Catholics who would vote for politicians like Sleepy Joe Biden, Bernie “tight mittens” Sanders, or Alexandria Occasionally-Castro. They espouse all 10 Planks of Marxism, have no qualms with abortion through the 100th trimester (euthanasia), are staunch proponents of printing money out of thin air with the Fed, and two of them are Catholic.

Catholics have no excuse not to oppose the wicked ideas of central banking and no child labor, which our country and every western democracy has enacted. These institutions do not help the poor or protect children. They do the opposite. They create a miserable mindset of consternation where children become economic liabilities for young, potential parents who would otherwise welcome the gift of life.

One last thing to remember: We shouldn’t call abortion a “child sacrifice.” This implies that the ones who elect to kill their offspring ever valued them in the first place. It’s “child slaughter.” This bears no resemblance to the love Abraham had for Isaac when he had to commit his will to sacrificing his son. Parents today can’t wait to be rid of their children because their economic calculation is that they are of negative net value. Our social/political structures encourage this. Let us do everything we can to reverse this unfortunate socioeconomic situation. Central banking and no child labor will lead people to sin.

Russia Consecrated? Give Me a Break.

There’s a new argument going around that says that Russia HAS ALREADY been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, thus fulfilling Our Lady’s request at Fatima. We should be wary of this ill-begotten position, however.

The argument goes something like this: Russia, unlike other places in the world, has its churches open and is a Christian nation once again following all those years of tyranny. Therefore, the consecration was completed. Half of the world’s Eastern Orthodox live in Russia and are practicing happily in contrast with western civilization and its lockdown paranoia. With all the burgeoning joy of Christian love in Russia, we can set aside our Fatima-fundamentalist concerns over a consecration. The issue resolved itself with the culmination of communism in the east. Russia was consecrated; let’s worry about our business now. At least that’s what we’re being told.

This of course ignores the fact that the consecration has never been attempted the way Our Lady requested (by the Pope in communion with ALL the bishops of the world). To his credit, St. Pope John Paul II attempted a consecration in 1981, but he failed to command the bishops to join him. This doesn’t matter to those who think Russia has turned a new leaf away from its days behind the Iron Curtain. Some even go as far as to say that Russia has officially adopted Christianity as its state religion (this is false; no evidence for it), disavowing the several decades of forced atheism.

Nevertheless, if we confine our understanding of Russia to reality, we can plainly see that the fruits of Russia are rotten and indicative of a place NOT consecrated to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart. Russia leads the world in abortions. It’s near the top of the world in other categories such as suicide, alcoholism, single motherhood, divorce, etc. If you think the U.S. is bad with abortion (it is!), you don’t want to delve too deeply into Russia. They have 53.7 abortions per 1,000 women. The U.S. has 20.8 per 1,000 women. In other words, the U.S. is closer to being abortion-free than it is to Russia’s astronomical rate. The second-most-child-slaughtering country is Vietnam (the USSR’s old commie buddy), which kills at a rate of 35.2 per 1,000. Kazakhstan is third at 35 per 1,000 women. Most of the world’s worst offenders are connected to the old Soviet bloc one way or another. Their child-murdering habits give no indication that they ever repudiated material atheism and totalitarianism.

I could spend all day detailing why Russia remains economically backwards and has been the great harbinger for everything American and wretched in the 2020’s, but the abortion issue tells the story with perfect lucidity. Would it be much of a stretch to say that abortion is the perfect proxy for communism and brutality? Russia, just like the US, doesn’t engage in child sacrifice either. That’s being way too generous. That implies that women committing their abortions VALUE their children beforehand. Unlike Abraham, who didn’t want to sacrifice Isaac but was willing to do so out of fealty to God, today’s women place no value in their offspring. Most find the prospect of motherhood contemptible, an obstacle to further fornication, and an economic albatross. This means that their abortions are nothing better than an outright slaughter, and the eugenicist dictators, marionetted by Satan, are overjoyed by it. Russia, the U.S., and the rest of western civilization fall squarely into this demonic paradigm.

These countries never truly disavowed communism. They may have renamed their authoritarianism or dressed it with a different set of trousers. Irrespective of whether we choose to acknowledge it, the U.S. has a long love affair with all 10 Planks of Marxism. It takes nothing more than a pair of working eyes to see the obvious horror of these social-political circumstances for a world that’s not even in the ballpark of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. To suggest otherwise, would be to diminish the purity and splendor of Her Immaculate Heart to the point of blasphemy.

If we take seriously Our Lord’s admonition of “by their fruits, you’ll know them,” then we ought to ponder long and hard about the condition of the Russian Federation (still second in the world in suicides) and whether it comports itself to the holiness of the Blessed Virgin. It’s either that or we have completely misunderstood the significance of a consecration. Bad fruits come not only from false prophets and bad teachers, but also from wicked nations that follow the model of the Old Testament kings, ignoring the good prophets and warnings from heaven:

Sedecias was one and twenty years old when he began to reign: and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And he did evil in the eyes of the Lord his God, and did not reverence the face of Jeremias the prophet speaking to him from the mouth of the Lord.
– 2 Chronicles 36: 11-12.

The visions of Our Lady of Fatima were not only seen by the three holy children: Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco, but by some 70,000 others as well. Although the Church will never elevate an apparition of private revelation to the binding level of holy scripture, and by extension, God’s holy prophets, we have good reason to believe that Our Lady of Fatima was the most significant revelation since St. John’s Apocalypse. When clergy and secular rulers ignore such warnings, they do so at the peril of their subjects and citizens, just like Sedecias and the Old Testament kings did by ignoring Jeremiah and the prophets.

We don’t have to be part of any “Cult of Fatima” to see that Russia spread her errors long ago and has not since recovered. Pray for the consecration of Russia. Pray for the poor Russians. Pray for the healing of the entire world, which has had an Iron Curtain descend upon it.

Consecration of Russia – Black Pill

Russia is becoming a new Evil Empire ·Euromaidan Press

Our Lady of Fatima requested that Russia be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart or else chastisements would worsen (up to and including the annihilation of nations). This was supposed to be done by the pope in union with all the bishops in public.

For various reasons, the early attempts at this consecration have not come to fruition (Pope JPII did not do it with ALL of the bishops, first and foremost). What do you think it would take to get the bishops to join a willing pope in this endeavor?

Could the 3rd Secret of Fatima have anything do with it? We know from what’s been revealed about the secret that it may involve the death of a pope (the bishop in white), but it also mentions the deaths of many religious, priests, and BISHOPS.

According to the interpretation of the “little shepherds,” which was also confirmed recently by Sister Lucia, “the Bishop clothed in white” who prays for all the faithful is the Pope. As he makes his way with great difficulty towards the Cross amid the corpses of those who were martyred (Bishops, priests, men and women Religious and many lay people), he too falls to the ground, apparently dead, under a hail of gunfire.

So, here’s the black pill, if you haven’t already guessed — it may be required that the 3rd Secret of Fatima go into effect to eliminate a significant portion of the bishops, who would otherwise be unwilling to perform the consecration. This makes sense because one is left to wonder how such an enormous undertaking would happen with today’s clergy. It doesn’t seem likely that Pope Francis would make the consecration, let alone get the Cardinal Cupich’s of the world to participate.

If ALL means ALL, then I take that to mean that even just a single prelate could veto the whole thing or ruin it like a senate filibuster. However, if the 3rd Secret were to come true, and it was a widespread/worldwide clerical slaughter, then it would lead to a steep truncating of Church hierarchy, which might be necessary in order for the consecration to ever be feasible.

I’m not telling anybody to massacre bishops or anything of the sort, but given how dark things are now, this seems plausible, albeit horrifying and lamentable. Has it come to this, an Old-Testament-style wipe out of the clergy needed before the consecration would happen? We can plainly see that today’s hierarchy have no interest in the supernatural and would be hard-pressed to even pay lipservice to any consecration of Russia.

It seems clear then . . . In order for the pope to consecrate Russia to Our Lady in union with ALL the bishops, there would likely need to be far fewer bishops in the world. For those who have shown no interest in allowing Our Lady to heal our world, this Gospel passage seems apt:

“For now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that doth not yield good fruit, shall be cut down, and cast into the fire.” –Matthew 3:10

We only get so long to bear fruit.

Pray for mass conversions so that we can avert mass destruction. Pray for the consecration of Russia, the worldwide leader in abortions, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

God bless everyone.
