1/ In "Abuse of Language Abuse of Power," Joseph Pieper reflects on the way language has been abused so that, instead of being a means of communicating the truth and entering more deeply into it, and of the acquisition of wisdom,...
2/ ... it is being used to control people and manipulate them to achieve practical ends.
3/ Reality becomes intelligible through words. Man speaks so that through naming things, what is real may become intelligible. This mediating character of language, however, is being increasingly corrupted.
4/ Tyranny, propaganda, mass-media destroy and distort words. They offer us apparent realities whose fictive character threatens to become opaque.
5/ Josef Pieper shows with energetic zeal, but also with ascetical restraint, the path out of this dangerous situation. We are constrained to see things again as they are and from the truth thus grasped to live and to work.
6/ Josef Pieper — Abuse of Language Abuse of Power

One of the great Catholic philosophers of our day..."and an important figure in the resurgence of interest in the thought of Thomas Aquinas in early-to-mid 20th-century philosophy."

7/ It is a gift to become aware of the error of our ways. When blessed by such gifts, we are charged with answering the call and from hence forth, as adults, we are responsible for changing that which is broken in each one of us.
8/ While it may be true that we are the victims of an attack of the unconventional warfare perpetrated against us and are thus not responsible for "not knowing" once we have been made aware, the responsibility is ours to learn what happened, how it happened, and then to change.
9/ We must each explore what is broken in ourselves and commit each day to healing.
10/ By properly educating ourselves and acquiring greater awareness of both the true self and our external environment, the assaults upon our psyche and our higher self can be neutralized and our ability to properly respond restored.

1/ If want to address the faith issue, I think that is a noble pursuit. Consider that people have generally lost faith because the church has been corrupted from within just as has our entire culture and way of thinking has been corrupted.

The enemy is inside the gates & church.
2/ You have to show people the how and why they lost faith, how their corrupted way of thinking is preventing them from rediscovering it, as well as, the manner & methods that were and still are used against them to achieve the state of things.
3/ Then you have to show them why it is their responsibility to self-correct and rediscover faith again through service and self-driven re-education.

1/ As the result of 100 yrs of dialectic/mass line attacks we have lost our moral foundation, ability to think, & communicate. Underpinning this is a sickness of the soul born from unexamined lives lived without a divine rudder to guide them to lead lives of prudence and virtue.
2/ "Prudence is one of the Cardinal Virtues in the Catholic Catechism. They are at the pinnacle of human virtues that flow from the sacred virtues." S. Couglin.
These virtues were once part of the fabric of our society, anchored our founding, and established the foundation from which we could rightly proclaim a great nation. These have not only been abandoned, their meaning is corrupted and reality itself has been forgotten.

Thread: The fact that you asked this question tells me that some part of you recognizes that something is wrong. Your choices going forward will determine if you chart a new course into actual conscious awareness and become genuinely red pilled. Let me explain.
When people enter social media they do so innocently for various reasons. Some believe that they have made the choice to get informed, to meet other like minded people, support a political candidate, etc.
Their initial belief that this is what they are doing becomes the foundation of what in reality is not in fact reality. It is the world of a pseudo reality, the unreal, a fantasy world.

SEC filing: The company BioNTech of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was facing catastrophic financial failure and predicted a potential industry cascade failure due to COVID. Forced Vax is a pharma industry hail Mary bail out despite known health risks. @S_Coughlin_DC
SEC filing: The company BioNTech of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine has incurred significant losses since their inception in 2008 and anticipate that they’ll continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future.
No mRNA immunotherapy has been approved, and none may ever be approved. mRNA drug development has substantial clinical development and regulatory risks due to the novel and unprecedented nature of this new category of therapeutics.

And yet the New Right’s (Trump’s—Anton, Michael Millerman, Jack Murphy, Pedro Gonzales, Posobiec, Darren Beattie, etc.) answer is to seek philosophical counsel from the likes of NAZI Heidegger, Carl Schmitt & Putin’s resident philosopher dubbed “Putin’s Rasputin,”Alexander Dugin.
If the masses want to understand why they are browbeaten, demoralized, & targeted by the security state as NAZIS, racists, Russian assets, & insurrectionists, they should look at the activities of the people they RT that they believe are on their side. They are NOT on your side!
They deliberately make you a target, a victim so they can grift off of you and get your votes.
