Marxism always leads to bloodshed

Is the U.S. a Marxist Communist Country

John-Henry Westen writes:
Dr. Hickson wrote at LifeSiteNews of the interview conducted by the well respected American historian and author, William Thomas Walsh. In 1947, Professor Walsh authored a book about Fatima, titled Our Lady of Fatima, at the end of which he recounts an interview he conducted with Sister Lucia of Fatima the year before.
One of the messages of Fatima received by the children in 1917 pertains to the then-impending Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.
“What Our Lady wants is that the Pope and all the bishops in the world shall consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart on one special day. If this is done, she will convert Russia and there will be peace. If it is not done, the errors of Russia will spread through every country in the world,” Lucia told Walsh.
“Does this mean,” Walsh then asked, “in your opinion, that every country, without exception, will be overcome by Communism?” And Sister Lucia answered: “Yes.”
The interpreter during the interview, allowing Walsh to converse with Sr. Lucia in her native Portuguese, was Father Manuel Rocha, who later revealed that Walsh had asked explicitly about the United States of America, adding: “And does that mean the United States of America, too?” Whereupon Sister Lucia responded once more: “Yes.”[1]
That consecration did not occur until very late — too late, in fact. While JP IIs consecration did stop a nuclear war, the errors foretold by Mary did infect the whole world. Given the fact that the U.S. is now governed by Marxist/Socialist/Communists, I’m confident that Sr. Lucia’s prognostication was correct.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen (soon to be called Blessed) writes, “Communism is the final logic of the dehumanization of man.”[2] What happens when a being created in the image and likeness of a good and loving God is dehumanized? In the case of the antichrist, He makes himself into a Beast. The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us, “The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God [SML] and of his Messiah come in the flesh [CCC 675].”
By its very nature, atheistic governing figures of the Communists, Socialists, and Progressives are guilty of the ultimate pride — denying the existence of God, elevating themselves to the status of gods. In Revelation 13:15 it is written, “It [the first Beast] was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship [SML] the image of the beast to be slain.” These governing atheists believe they are both supremely capable of, and entitled to, create a sort of heaven on earth. A utopia on earth. Most important (to themselves), they believe they deserve the best of everything, in exchange for the inestimable value of their perfect governance. As Sheen tells us, “If you do not worship God, you worship something, and nine times out of ten it will be yourself. You have a duty to worship God, not because He will be imperfect and unhappy if you do not, but because you will be imperfect and unhappy.”[3]
These Marxist governments always have a short lifespan. They are not sustainable. Yet, despite the miserable track record, they keep cropping up. Why? It is because these followers of Satan are so full of pride, just like their father, Satan. They believe they can succeed where all others have failed. Lucifer committed this same prideful sin when he tried to make himself equal to God, to have his own kingdom. As Sheen tells us, “Pride is the king of vices...it is the first of the pallbearers of the soul...other vices destroy only their opposite virtues, as wantonness destroys chastity; greed destroys temperance; anger destroys gentleness; but pride destroys all virtues.”[4]
Communists, Socialists, Progressives (we will refer to all of these as the governing elite) are the secular modern-day Pharisees and Sadducees (we will refer to them as the Ancient Jewish Elite). As with the Ancient Jewish Elite, the governing elite are generally highly educated, i.e., book-learned. I use the term book-learned to make a distinction between intellect/knowledge, on one hand, and Wisdom, God’s Truth, and common sense on the other. Generally, the greater the intellect or the greater the celebrity, so follows the greater temptation to pride. So, too, the greater the temptation to believe yourself to be better/greater/more valuable than the others. To be superior to the common man. This was exemplified by the pride of the Pharisees during their prayers. Jesus tells us, “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get’” (Luke 18:11-12).
The ruling Marxists are the elites. They believe as the Ancient Jewish elite did. They felt that Judaism would be doomed if it were not for their intelligence and their leadership. The governing elite believe the common people could not survive without them. What did Jesus think about these prideful Judaic elites? According to Matthew, Jesus tells them, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness” (Matt 23:27).
The elitists of these governments view the peoples as nothing more than tools to serve the elite. The working class have no human value whatsoever. When I was in college in the late 1960s, the professor of my Political Science class enlightened us with his elitist estimate of the value of the ordinary people. The phrase he used was, “The masses are the asses.” Since atheists do not believe in God, man is not esteemed as a being created in the image and likeness of a Good God. Ergo, man possesses no intrinsic value.
Marxists are the secular version of the tower of Babel story in Scripture (Gen 11:1–9). The people inhabiting the land of Shinar believed they could build a tower tall enough to reach Heaven. Like the Shinarans, our modern day Governing Elites believe they can build a tower (kingdom) high enough to reach societal utopia. Pride, which is a blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, always leads to hatred, violence, division, and spiritual blindness. In biblical times, this pride led to confusion of language which is symbolic of this division. The Marxist towers always collapse. The spirit they follow is not Holy, but is the spirit of the Dragon, the Father of lies and division. The Governing Elite and those that are governed always end up at war with each other. Proof can be seen below. That is why no Marxist government has lasted more than a few decades.
Here is the text of that entry into the Congressional Record. I have italicized the ones dealing with non-morality goals and emphasized with bold text the ones related to morality:
Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35
Current Communist Goals
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” (Remember these goals were published to expose them in 1958) Coincidence?
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI. [or, as in the case of the modern-day FBI, corrupt it]
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat]. [as Minneapolis, MN is attempting to do  SML]
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. [Not in the Congressional Record, for obvious reasons, is the following: Encourage promiscuity, masturbation[5], i.e., intentional sterility -- hmm. How did that work out for Onan (Gen 38:9)]
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“] united force [”] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.[6]
Are we responsible for allowing this to happen? I could make a case that the vast majority, including this author, have contributed to the achievement of these goals. There is a saying coined by Joseph de Maistre that sums up our personal responsibility for the evil that is in the world (and our country) today. He said, “Every nation gets the government it deserves.” and also, “In a democracy people get the leaders they deserve [Letter 76, on the topic of Russia's new constitutional laws (27 August 1811); published in Lettres et Opuscules.].’”[7] Franklin D. Roosevelt writes, “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country”[8] who voted them in and gave them the power.
How could we allow it to happen? The following sections are from the three-part blog series titled: The Beast in Scripture is Not Coming: It’s Here! [and has been here for over a hundred years].

Satan’s Efforts to Destroy Jesus’ Church: One Battle, Two Fronts

Repeating what was written earlier in this blog series, fallen man, whose sins against God have become so grievous, so widespread, and so devoid of any fruit, is the substance of the Beast who comes out of the sea. When did this Beast arrive? As was mentioned in Apostasy and Prophecy in The Beast in Scripture is Not Coming: It’s Here!, Satan was granted 100-120 years (consisting of two consecutive 50-60 year periods, as was also the case in the book of Job) of time, together with extra power, during which the followers of Satan could attempt to destroy the Church (the kingdom of God) Jesus built.[9] This period following the unleashing of Satan probably started one year after Jesus asked Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart, in 1898, to have the Pope consecrate the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. That consecration occurred 1899. From that point on, Satan would waste no time in turning his rage on men, turning them into beasts that he could use to populate his kingdom of death.
A sign that confirms the beginning of Satan’s time and power can be seen through the unleashing of the dogs/beasts of war. All wars are punishments brought on by man himself. They are the consequences of their grievous sins. Furthermore, while the Holy Spirit is Divine Unity, the UNholy Spirit (the spirit of the Antichrist) is hatred, division, and violence. The twentieth century saw more bloodshed and war than any other century in human history. Just in the period from 1900 to 1960, there have been one-hundred thirty-three wars. Without counting civilian deaths there have been 74.6 million deaths .
If we count the Spanish influenza, which was spread by soldiers returning from WWI, the death count would be 124.6 million deaths. The second half of that 120-year period ended in 2019. While war was a sign of his arrival, it was not a battlefront he would choose to use in his attack. Satan wanted to destroy their souls together with their bodies (Matt 10:28). Hence, war would not be the most effective means of achieving that goal. Remember, Satan was on a tight schedule, so to speak. He needed something to kill body and spiritual soul together — and do it quickly. Thus, we have the two battlefronts (discussed below) of Satan’s war with the Church.
The key to understanding the two Beasts (both possessing the spirit of Satan, aka the spirit of the antichrist) described in Revelation 13, is the last passage written in Chapter 12. It reads, “Then the dragon took his stand on the sand of the seashore” (Rev 12:18).[10] This is the point at which the dragon gave his spirit to the first Beast described in Rev 13. In John’s letters, he wrote, “And every spirit [SML] which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist [SML], of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already” (1 John 4:3). The dragon, who took his stand on the sand of the seashore (very important words), is a description of Satan immediately after failing to destroy the woman and her male child (Chapter 12) and just as he sets out to make war with the rest of her offspring. It is also the point at which the Dragon’s spirit, the spirit of the antichrist, was given to the Beasts to wage war on the Church, the Bride of Christ, in order to destroy that Church, i.e., the Mystical Body of Christ on earth.
As was said in other posts and articles on STOSS Books, sand/dust/stone in Scripture is a reference to the collective DNA of our entire body. In Scripture, sand/dust do not possess a general connotation of good or bad. It simply denotes the entire collective genome of man, in general. The land upon which Satan stood (the sand/dust of the seashore—Rev 12:18) denotes the second Beast which was on the land (Rev 13:11). Both Beasts are one in the same spirit of the antichrist, with the same substance, i.e., the dust of DNA. The Beast coming from the land will be explained later in the section titled, Battle Front Two. Both salt and the sea (salt together with bio-structured water) refer to fallen man, the bad consequences flowing from the actual genetic functioning of fallen man.
The Beast who arises from the sea will be discussed next. Before doing so, let me add that the confession of demons during the exorcism performed in Earling, Iowa (memorialized in 2005 movie, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) supports my characterization of the two battlefronts being employed by Satan in his final attempt to destroy the Church. One's first response would likely be: aren't demons liars? Under certain conditions, no. According to notes from the exorcist priest, “When, however, the exorcist does his duty and places pertinent questions for the success of the exorcism or for the purpose of humiliating the demon, the authority of the Church in the person of the exorcist forces the demon to speak the truth.”[10-A]
So was the information from this book pertinent to the prayer written by Pope Leo XIII as a result of his vision of the dialogue between Satan and God?
The bishop submitted the records [of the priest exorcist] to the Holy Office at Rome. The author was informed by the Holy Office that the work was highly praiseworthy and that it contained nothing contrary to the teachings of the Church. They called his attention especially to the fact that his entire work harmonized with the considerations which at that very time moved the Holy Father, Pope Leo XIII, to compose the prayer to be said after Mass in order to counteract the attacks of Satan.[10-B]
So what truth were the demons forced to reveal?
Since the Pontificate of Pius IX the Church has entered into a period of severe persecutions. The militant Church has to suffer under a twofold evil: externally, through the persecution of her enemies [the Beast from the Land (Rev 13:11)—SML], and interiorly, through the corruption of her members [the Beast from the Sea (Rev. 13:1)—SML] .... this twofold tendency is constantly increasing. The cause of this heavy burden laid upon the Church is due, according to the confessions of the demons, to the unusually strong and numerous invasion of diabolical spirits [part of the increased power granted to Satan, per Pope Leo XIII’s vision—SML] upon this earth.[10-C]
Battle Front One: The De-moral-ization of the Church (aka the Beast from Out of the Sea)
His choice of the first battlefront reveals Satan’s plan to destroy Christ’s Church Militant. He plans to de-moral-ize, and thus weaken the Church. I am not using this term to refer to morale, meaning mental and emotional state. Rather, I am using it to specifically point to virtues and vices—specifically vices tied to the lusts of the flesh. It is Satan’s desire to weaken the members of Church Militant by destroying their moral underpinnings; the very thing that makes us strong. This approach is actually explained in Revelation.
In Rev. 2:12-17, we read about the church at Pergamum. The people of this church are told, “To him who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone which no one knows except him who receives it.” So, what was it that the Spirit wanted this particular church to conquer? The sin of the church at Pergamum was fornication and/or adultery, both of the flesh and of the spirit (idolatry); both are rampant in the twentieth century. Interestingly, none of the other churches were promised a white stone should they succeed in conquering their particular brand of sinfulness. We know this because of the reference to the “teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak” (Rev 2:14). What was it Balaam taught Balak? Balaam knew that the Churches strength came from God. Balaam knew that without God, they would become weak and vulnerable. In order to make God angry at the Israelites, Balaam taught Balak to place stumbling blocks before them. To put that teaching into action, Balak employed some of the most beautiful women in his kingdom to lure the men into unclean fleshly and spiritual acts, i.e. sexual intercourse and idolatry.[11] The stumbling blocks were the DNA/salt/dust/stone bodies of beautiful and desirous women. This is why the Spirit informs them of the white stone. He is telling them, if the men conquer their lust of the flesh, then, at the resurrection, their bodies will be raised from the dead, be glorified, and become as pure as snow (as clean as a white stone).[12]
There is no more effective means of luring souls to hell than sins of the flesh. There is one particular sin from which all other subsequent sexual perversions take root. It is so very dangerous because one of the consequences of committing such powerfully induced sin is this: once committed, it will hormonally induce an ever–growing addiction toward experiencing the excitement associated with that sin. Unfortunately, the nature of biologically generated hormonal rewards is that they necessitate new perversions in order to obtain that same level of excitement as was experienced the first time the sin was committed. This constitutes battlefront #1. It is through this front that Satan destroys marriage and the family structure.
According to the recordings of a priest-exorcist:
The demons admit that they penetrate everywhere to bring about the ruination of souls, especially through impurity. Everywhere they are spreading “the blackest deceptions.” One demon who called himself “Luxuria” and who used the possessed person to imitate femininity, told me proudly: “I have by far more servants than your Virgin (Bl. Virgin) has.” [12-B].
Satan boasted to God that he could destroy the Church. Why the Church? The family is the closest image on earth of the Covenant relationship existing between the three Persons of the Trinity—the Family of God. It is also the actual Covenant of Salt existing between Jesus and his Church. He is the bridegroom; the Church (consisting of all of the baptized) is his bride. Satan had already tried to get Jesus to worship him in the desert. He failed. Therefore, the devil decided to use an older tactic he had used before that had worked. Satan sought to hurt the Son of God by destroying the bodies and souls of his Bride—a replay of his tactic for destroying Adam and his seed. Knowing of Adam’s great love for his wife Eve (bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh, a family); the serpent led her to sin, knowing that she could, and would, convince Adam to do the same. Here is an interesting question. Why were their eyes not opened until after both had eaten the apple? That eye–opening (sorry, couldn’t resist) question will be addressed in a future post.
In close chronological proximity to the events at Fatima, there was another event taking place. It involved the work of a particular socialist who was also a nurse. Margaret Sanger belonged to the American Eugenics Society, a group who supported Nazi Germany’s eugenics policies. She was also on the American Advisory Board of the Euthanasia Society of America. Yes, confirmed by Snopes, the Nazis were indeed anti-capitalist and Socialist.[13][14] It was an event that, arguably, launched Satan’s attack on marriage and the family.
In 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S., for which she was arrested. Equally, if not more, significant: in 1917, she launched the monthly periodical Birth Control Review (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger; see also http://www.lifedynamics.com/library/), thus beginning the spread of her evil/beastly agenda. For those who may not be aware, Sanger also started the American Birth Control League in 1921,[15] which later morphed into Planned Parenthood. By the way, if anyone is in doubt about the evilness of Margaret Sanger, read articles she wrote in her publication, Birth Control Review. Her open racism and willingness to kill those she deemed unworthy will shock you. You can read those articles at the Life Dynamics link above.
Beginning of the Decisive Battle with Satan Over Marriage & the Family
A sacramental marriage is sacred (only if made sacramental by the Holy Spirit) because God instituted it as an image of both the Trinity, and the relationship existing between Jesus and his one and only Church. This is the reason why the spirit of the Antichrist wants to destroy marriage, the spouses, and the children of the spouses. There have been over 60 million abortions in the U.S alone between 1973 and 2017.[16] This figure does not even include spontaneous abortions resulting from the use of artificial contraceptives. Additional horrors include partial-birth abortion and the selling of fetal body parts for money. Worldwide, there has been 1.72 billion babies murdered in the womb.[17] Again, this is what happens when an atheistic government is voted in by those who have, wittingly or unwittingly, become part of the Beast.
Cardinal Carlo Caffara was tasked by Pope John Paul II to plan and establish the Pontifical Institute for the Studies on Marriage and the Family. He wrote to Sr. Lucia, one of the three children who received apparitions from Mary, the Mother of God (for information on Fatima and the miracle of the sun click here and here). The purpose of his letter was to ask for her prayers for the success of this endeavor. She responded with a six-page letter, telling the Cardinal, “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family [emphasis mine]. Don’t be afraid, she added, because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue [my emphasis].”[18] Are we now in this final battle?
According to a Wall Street Journal article, the U.S. marriage rate has dropped to the lowest rate since 1867 (the point at which records became available).[19] More and more Americans are choosing to cohabitate. In 1970, about 70% of the population were married and only 1% cohabitated.[20] In 2019, 7% were cohabitating. Americans are choosing cohabitation because of strained finances, declining religious adherence, and growing acceptance of unmarried cohabitation.[21] This is another example of Scripture informing us that people will believe they need the mark of the Beast in order to buy and sell (Rev 13:16-17).
It is my belief that this event described above marked the beginning of Satan’s final attack on mankind … the decisive battle, as Sister Lucia of Fatima described it above.[22] Artificial and intentional sterility automatically removes the family unit from existing in a state that can be said to be in the image and likeness of a Triune God; a God who is a Triune family in an eternal living and fruitful relationship. This was the Beast that comes out of the sea (Rev 13:1) — see also Dead/Salt Sea. I urge all to ponder these words carefully!
God revealed to St. Hildegard,
And falling thus from disobedience into death, when they [Adam and Eve] knew they could sin [thanks to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil—SML], they discovered sin's sweetness [see next paragraph for more about the meaning of sweetness–SML]. And in this way, turning My rightful institution into sinful lust, although they should have known that the commotion in their veins [i.e., hormones] was not for the sweetness of sin but for the love of children, by the Devil’s suggestion they changed it to lechery; and, losing the innocence of the act of begetting, they yielded it to sin. This was not accomplished without the Devil’s persuasion; for that purpose he sent forth his darts, and it did not come to pass without his suggestion ; as he said, ‘My [Devil's] strength is in human conception, and therefore humanity is mine’ [emphasis mine]![23]
When the disordered soul lost control over the body, the sweetness of sin was discovered through the uncontrollable (by the soul) expression of hormones such as dopamine, oxytocin, vasopressin, and others. These hormones are both sweet ... but also addictive (aka slavery to sin). These hormones produce knowledge of good and evil. The biological sciences tell us, unlike most other proteins, hormones are carried to their target cells via the bloodstream. Hence, we understand the “commotion in the veins” as quoted in the previous paragraph. Hildegard informs us that after Adam’s sin, blood carried within itself: 1) sweet, but deadly, poison;[24] 2) shameful and turbulent acts, thus increasing the body’s appetite for those very crimes carried in the blood;[25] and, 3) impure filth which changed Adam’s blood into a liquid of pollution.[26]
Artificial Birth Control, for the first time in history, has provided mankind with the technology to commit grievous and relatively consequence (remember Sanger’s quotes above)–free grievous and deadly sins on a truly massive scale. Sins directly targeting fruitfulness and the family structure. In the past, there always been great evils, but they primarily harmed the bodies of its victims, but not their souls. As Matthew says, “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Mt 10:28). Artificial Birth Control not only profoundly harms the body of self and others, it also destroys the soul of those who freely partake of it. It turns man into beasts, no longer in the image and likeness of God, as we have repeatedly shown in this blog series. Satan together with his spiritual and human followers are the ones who can destroy both. Furthermore, through epigenetic plasticity/change and subsequent heritability (e.g., here), our offspring can be pre-disposed to compulsive addictions—to the third and fourth generation[27][28] as Scripture tells us (e.g., Ex 20:5, 34:7; Num 14:18; Deut 5:9). It is my belief that there is no greater evil that can be committed than the sin of purposely making oneself sterile.
Contraception is bad enough by itself, but its tentacles of evil consequences spreads to every aspect of our society and our world, particularly to the developed countries. Let us look at a brief history of artificial birth control (ABC) and other consequences that result from it. The timeline below come from MedicineNet:
1898—Nineteen-year-old Margaret Sanger's mother dies at age 50, exhausted from giving birth to 11 children. Sanger becomes a nurse and aids survivors of botched abortions. Later she turns her attention to the development of better contraceptives. Her dream: A birth control pill.
1906—Cyrus McCormick, inventor of the mechanical harvester, is diagnosed with schizophrenia. His wife, Katherine, dreads passing on the mental illness to future children. Later she forms a partnership with birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger. She funds contraception research with her sizeable fortune. This work eventually leads to the development of the birth control pill.
1918—Condoms become legal in the U.S. Troops fighting in World War I ignored official Army advice to abstain from sex. They obtained condoms overseas—and brought them home. [Note: this was only a year after Mary’s warnings to the world at Fatima]. Satan has now fully embarked on his plan.
1921—In the 1920s, the U.S. birth rate drops by half [the contraceptive mentality is beginning to take root]. Condom reliability is still terrible by modern standards, but people achieved effective birth control by combining condoms, the rhythm method, male withdrawal, diaphragms, and/or intrauterine devices.
[1938—In a case involving Margaret Sanger, a judge lifted the federal ban on birth control, ending the Comstock era. Diaphragms, also known as womb veils, became a popular method of birth control. https://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/book-excerpts/health-article/a-brief-history-of-birth-control/]
[1950—‘While in her 80s, Sanger underwrote the research necessary to create the first human birth control pill. She raised $150,000 for the project.’ https://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/book-excerpts/health-article/a-brief-history-of-birth-control/] Incidentally, 1950 is the year in which many modernized countries reached a peak level of personal happiness. Even though per capita incomes raised significantly, happiness progressively dropped.[29] [When a progressively large portion of the population voluntarily transitions into state that takes them out of being in the image and likeness of God, unhappiness cannot help but be the result–SML].
1951—Katherine McCormick funds Gregory Pincus's research into developing an oral contraceptive. Luckily [MedicineNet’s wording] two drug companies, Syntex and Searle, each developed a form of synthetic progesterone. They allow Pincus to explore use of this female hormone in his work.
1960—The Searle drug company receives FDA approval for Enovid - the first birth control pill. "The Pill" revolutionizes contraception. It's 100% effective -- but has terrible side effects, including life-threatening blood clots. Eventually it's realized that the dose is 10 times too high. [This is approximately when the sexual revolution began and the “Beast” grew exponentially].
1965—The U.S. Supreme Court strikes down the Comstock laws that banned contraception.[30]

[28] “In a study published in 2005 (Science, Vol. 308, p. 1466), researchers at the University of Idaho showed that male rats exposed to the crop fungicide, vinclozolin, experienced higher rates of cancer and kidney defects. The effects were also passed down to all of the affected male’s offspring, and through three generations of father to son offspring.” Quote Source: Emma Young, "Rewriting Darwin: The new non-genetic inheritance," New Scientist, http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg19926641.500-rewriting-darwin-the-new-nongenetic-inheritance.html: Reed Business Information Ltd., July 09, 2008 (accessed 02/15/2012).
[29] “Numerous studies from the United States, Europe and Japan confirm that increasing per capita incomes do not result in increasing happiness. In the United States real incomes rose substantially between the 1940s and the 1970s; new detailed studies of that period have confirmed Easterlin's 1974 finding that happiness peaked in the late 1950s and then declined. From 1972 through 1991, a period when per capita income after tax rose by one third, annual survey data from the national Opinion Research Centre likewise show no upward trend in happiness. Surveys of life satisfaction in nine European countries from 1973 through 1989 show a slight upward tend [sic] in two countries, a slight downward trend in two, and no trend in the remaining five, during those years real per capita gross domestic product rose from 25 to 50% in the nine countries. A study of Japan found no increase in subjective well being from 1964 to 1987, despite the fact that real per capita GDP more than doubled.”
