Even a fool can be profound taken out of context:
“If someone tells young people to ignore their history, to reject the experiences of their elders, to look down on the past and to look forward to a future that he holds out, doesn’t it then become easy to draw them along so that they only do what he tells them?”
“He needs the young to be shallow, uprooted and distrustful, so that they can trust only in his promises and act according to his plans.”
That’s the Pope inveighing against populism, somehow, on behalf of progressive secular globalism. This could have been one of the more insightful passages in Mein Kampf.
It’s testament to globalism’s power the Church won’t touch right-wing populism with a ten-foot crosier. Despite right-wing populism being its natural ally against degeneracy, abortion, war; despite it being the last defender of religion and the status of the Church, for the love of you know Who!
What a strange world.
