The world has gone insane.
Of course, that is obvious to anyone with eyes and ears. The news daily reminds us of how insane the world has become. This insanity has spread like a disease into every sector of life: politics, media, education, entertainment, sports, even the Church. At some point during any given week, there will be something even more insane being reported on. Some of the things that go on in the world look like they took inspiration from The Babylon Bee (an excellent satirical site, I may add). But who is responsible for all this insanity?
I am currently doing the Bible In A Year plan by Ascension Press. On Day 2, where we read about the Fall of Mankind in the Garden of Eden, I saw something that I hadn't taken note of from previous readings of the text. The moment Satan is allowed a foothold in human society, he immediately begins to collapse it. When Adam and Eve permitted Satan influence into their society, what happened? They ate the fruit which God had forbidden to them and they immediately fell from grace and were now in a state of original sin.
Thus, they were punished with not only death, but also their banishment from the Garden, amongst other penances. After this, we are introduced to their son Cain who becomes the father of murderers after he commits fratricide against Abel due to the fact that the Most High accepted Abel's sacrifice but not Cain's. Of course, these two events - the Fall and Murder of Abel - happened years apart, but the Bible conveniently shortens the time for us (thank You, Holy Spirit!). Cain and Abel didn't exit Eve's womb fully formed and matured like Athena did from Zeus's head.
Throughout the Old Testament, we are repeatedly shown how society collapses very quickly when Satan is allowed to influence it. It got really bad after the Monarchical Schism, when the United Kingdom of Israel broke into the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah. Whilst Judah remained mostly loyal to the True God, the Kingdom of Israel had nothing but a constant apostasy.
The Kingdom of Israel was heavily influenced by the heathenism of its neighbours, whom the Israelites married. They went through a bad epoch where they engaged in child sacrifice and had a witch-king for a prince. They became a society under the close grip of Satan, oppressed and obsessed by him to such a degree that they went insane. That's the only word to describe how any person, particularly a mother, could willingly throw a baby into a fire in sacrifice to a deity that looked like it literally crawled out of Hell! And Israel isn't the only example. Look at the Aztecs, for example. Just watch Mel Gibson's Apocalypto to see what happened to those poor heathens.
And it's happening all over again in our own age. We are witnessing the collapse all over again, only this time it could the last time. As in the rise of Antichrist and then the Day of Judgement.
The pagan practises of the past have returned, only this time it's all made up to look scientific, modern, and free of religion and superstition. Example: instead of priests throwing screaming children into bonfires in worship of Moloch, modern pagans go to an abortion clinic and a doctor dissects the baby alive and sucks it up through a vacuum. Its organs may be sold for a profit. The priest is replaced by a doctor, the bonfire for the abortion instruments, and the temple for the clinic. The same could be said for sodomy. It's now presented as a legitimate, alternative lifestyle, with a flag, a holiday and all the rest. But, sodomy was almost always connected to sex rites for some deranged, sex-pervert of a god.
All Satan has done is taken good, old-fashioned paganism and dressed it up for a more "sophisticated" society. Neo-paganism is now the religion of the vast majority of the population. And it requires no outward profession of religion, so it's perfect for atheists.
But, how does Satan collapse society? It's very simple.
Think of the four stages of Extraordinary Diabolic Activity: Infestation, Oppression, Obsession and Possession. Firstly, Satan (and his demons) infests a society and begins the process of influencing it. Secondly, after said society is infested enough, he moves to Oppression, whereby he begins to visibly inflict society. Thirdly, he then moves to Obsession, whereby he causes society to obsess about evil. Lastly, once obsessed enough, he takes Possession of the society. The perfect fulfilment of all this will be, of course, the Kingdom of Antichrist.
In my opinion, we are now at the Obsession stage. Society is obsessed by constant evil. The words of Scripture can be applied to us today: Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth (Genesis 6: 11-12). Anyone who has seen what's happened as of late in the United States since the leaking of the judgment of the US Supreme Court to de-legalise abortion and return the decision to the States, can see how obsessed people are with utter evil. Oppose abortion and a group of frothing Molochians will come screaming after you like you were a Prophet sent by God. Oppose sodomy, and sodomites will rage at you like the Sodomites of old did against Lot. Oppose transgenderism and the heathens will have you cancelled.
Oppose any Leftist movement or destroy their arguments, and they will come after you like the religious fanatics they actually are. These poor lemmings are the result of being quite literally under the oppression of the Devil. They have lost the ability to think, reason or even communicate in most cases. They are jibbering fools. They are, literally, zombies. And of course, they are cannibalistic and go after their own kind who aren't as "woke" as they are, or who are not on the right bandwagon. They are insane. And insane people are dangerous, as the Left daily remind us.
And any society that goes after children either to murder them or to abuse them is clearly under the influence of the demonic.
Secular political commentators, even conservative ones, are at a loss as to what's happening because they won't accept the basic fact that the world is in the grip of the Preternatural, the Demonic. Satan is collapsing society at such a rate, that it's a free-falling as the Twin Towers on 9/11. Society dethroned Christ the King and enthroned Satan. And this is the result.
Sister Lucia of Fatima once said that society was under Diabolical Disorientation. That was then. We are far beyond that now. We are in the realm of Diabolical Insanity!
