The Collapse Of Sound Thinking And The Rise Of The Functional Retard.

Until not long ago most people were, in a way, simply educated. As a result, in what concerns big matters they would allow their betters, and their forefathers, to decide for them. The farmer of 1910 trusted what his forefathers had believed in matters of religion with the same natural, sound attitude with which he trusted them in matters concerning the way to run his farm. Likewise, he knew that he was simply educated, and that wiser or better learned people than him should be entrusted with the running of things above his pay grade.

All this collapsed in the Sixties. For the first time in history, the young generation could feel, and was universally recognised as, better educated than their parents. They compared their undoubtedly higher degree of conventional education with the one of their simply educated parents, and felt that the world was run by the wrong people, in the wrong way. Inebriated by a feeling of superiority – also fuelled by the many things their parents did wrong; their petty superstitions first and foremost – they started to throw away the baby together with the bathwater.

Suddenly, everything had to change. The dawn of a new age required a new thinking. Everything those old people were doing was simply old, and wrong. A vast exercise in collective hubris started to take place, and the very humility of the older generation, up to then a virtue, was now seen as a part of the problem, and the direct result of their lack of education and self-consciousness.

The older generation, made of simple people, often did not have the resources to articulate their thoughts. They saw their children where better educated, and had often undergone great financial deprivation to achieve that result. The rebellious and condescending attitude of their children was, in the end, exactly what they had worked so hard for. The rebellious son sounded rather stupid, or even evil to their ears; but hey, “they have studied”, would they say to themselves, and not without parental pride. The young began to win the war for the hearts and minds.

Here, the biggest catastrophe ensued: the Church, who should have remained a bulwark against this folly, decided to make friends with those who were – as it was abundantly clear by then – her enemies. The slogans of renewal were soon incorporated in the thinking and acting of our hierarchy. Predictably, the revolutionary process took its course even within the Church. The Aggiornamento never stops at Kerenski: at some point, you will get Lenin.

If the Church had opposed Her wall of timeless wisdom to the arrogance of those young people – who thought an accountant was vastly more qualified to decide what is right and wrong than a peasant – things could have been stemmed rather easily, and much of the revolutionary wave would have been stopped; but the attitude of the Church starting with John XXIII told the world exactly this: that the young accountants were now the leading force, and the old peasants had to change with the times; as the Church Herself was, in so many little and great things, doing.

When the time of a generational battle came, the Church hierarchy decided to side with the wrong side; possibly thinking, in the best cases, that in this way the revolutionary wave would have been domesticated, or asphyxiated in the warm embrace of a Church too strong and too dominant to be seriously damaged by them. However, it is clear by now that in many cases utter and totally willed complicity with evil was at work.

The new generation thought they knew better. Actually, they started to think they can decide (as opposed to learn) what is Right and what is Wrong. This attitude is, of course, vastly more arrogant and vastly more ignorant than anything their less educated parents ever were; but it is a vastly known phenomenon that people with a thin varnish of knowledge are those who think themselves smartest, and most educated.

As human things always go, the evil seeds of one generation became poisonous plants in the following one. The new generation started to reject everything even their “revolutionary” parents considered taboo. The first generation of destructors had still grown up with a sound foundation, the second did not have even that. What followed is a moral vacuum filled with the cheapest sentimentalism imaginable, the deification of “love” in whatever form, even perverted lust, and the astonishing confusion between goodness and allowing anyone to do anything with himself, including planned annihilation.

“Would you be happy if YOUR love was outlawed?”, said the message outside a well-know Londoner shop chain after Obergefell. This astonishing senseless piece of childish stupidity would have had the allegedly uneducated peasant of 1910 laughing out loud, but the allegedly far better educated young people of today are unable to even see what functional retards they have become, what total absence of thinking lies behind this emotional, brainless fluff unable to even recognise the possibility of anything like good and bad, provided they can sacrifice on the altar of the new god of their functionally retarded minds, Lurv.

The West has created, in only two generations, an army of stupid oxes utterly unable to think logically, without any concept of morality, without the slightest idea of right and wrong, and manipulated at will by a bunch of proto-communists who hate everything that is sacred, and in many cases certainly side with Satan. How more intelligent, and how less prone to manipulation were their peasant ancestors: who, though not educated, had firm coordinates concerning right and wrong, justice and injustice, true love and veritable abomination, the law of God and the sinfulness of man.

The modern Functional Retard has a degree in something often useless even in real life, and almos always utterly unusable to get to heaven. In this Country, he is not unlikely to be even unable to spell. But he thinks he is well educated, and able to decide what it right, or wrong, or “love”.

Retards with a useless degree, prepped for hell in huge numbers. This is what the last two generations have given us.

The Chuch hierarchy, collectively considered, has been an accomplice every step of the way.

  1. Love it Mudabor, hit the idiots right between the eye’s wake em up. Unfortunately I don’t that will work up here in Canada, a good kick in the nuts is about the only thing that will wake up our retards. And even then I wonder.

  2. sixlittlerabbits

    Too true, Mundabor!

  3. Wisdom comes from the Holy Ghost.

    I often what that means about all the catholics in the Novus Ordo Masses who flip-flop up to Communion in shorts and strapless tops?

  4. One of the best posts ever! I’ve often used the term “intellectual patricide” to describe what the baby boom generation did to their forebears, but this is the best description yet of the phenomenon, its whys and wherefores

  5. “He wasn’t a complete human being at all. He was a tiny bit of one, unnaturally developed; something in a bottle, an organ kept alive in a laboratory. I thought he was a sort of primitive savage, but he was something absolutely modern and up-to-date that only this ghastly age could produce. A tiny bit of a man pretending to be whole.”

    -Julia speaking about Rex Mottram in Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited

  6. What people seem not to know, and Blessed Jacopone of Todi made clear 700 years ago, is that our loves have to be set in order – there is a hierarchy of loves; and as Dante points out in the Purgatorio, the fact that something is a love for something, does not tell us that it is a good love. Love of another’s harm AKA grief at his having received a good from God, AKA envy, is not good – it is a deadly sin. I suspect and fear that many of our fathers in God do not read Dante – maybe they should. (Reading the Inferno is what first set me thinking about becoming a Catholic – so I owe him rather a lot.)

  7. A true tale, with a slight twist on your theme: the youngest of my four older brothers was sent away to university in the 70s, as a member of the ‘catholic’ fraternity house, which cost my parents plenty, I’m sure. This is where he became a ‘saved’ fundamentalist ‘christian’, and 40 years later he is the pastor of his own ‘church’ which is a family business wherein he employs his sons (music ministers, youth ministers, etc), who are mostly illiterate (it’s nearly impossible to decipher the sons’ spelling), but they can sure belt out some emotionally fluffy Jesus songs of their own writing. I’m sure they have degrees! And there are plenty of vacations to Mexico to save the poor Catholics while intermittently lounging on the beach. I rarely see this brother, which I suppose is better for my nervous system.😉

  8. I’ve always disagreed with this assessment because I lived through it and the so-called ‘greatest generation” were also the most progressive. They couldn’t throw out the old fast enough, or tear down old-fashioned buildings soon enough…everything had to be new and improved! Modern! I lived through the fifties and saw it all. I felt a kinship with my grandparents as did many my age and we rejected all mania for modernism. No one seems to remember the ‘return to the land” , the respect for crafts and homemade REAL things, bartering, etc.of the seventies begun under Joseph Pieper’s writings. Now all is looked at as just drugged old hippies. How sad how all this is playing out. If nothing else, we saved the world from polyester pants and white shoes. It was the ‘greatest generation’ that embraced liberalism in the church. They fought in WWII bravely enough, but it was a war that HAD to be fought. Vietnam was a liberal cause started by democrats like Lyndon Johnson…part of the so-called greatest generation. SHOULDN”T have been fought! I hope someday the whole truth comes out someday.It wasn’t my generation that brought all this on.

    • I blame those born, generally speaking, from 1945 on, and most certainly from 1950 on. They certainly did not fight WWII. They tried not to fight in Vietnam. They decried everything old as bad.

  9. Well, I can certainly agree that there was a vocal minority of spoiled brats, aka radicals, that gave my generation a bad rap but if you check the statistics, the vast majority just carried on as our parents did…if you look at Vatican II, for example, it was carried out by people who’d known nothing but traditional, orthodox Catholicism…the seeds of destruction were planted in the 1930’s at least. Saul Alinsky and The Beatniks et al were in the fifties. My dad said this country came close to a communist revolution in the thirties. Actually, read the Brothers Karamazov…there’s always this nihilistic type in all generations plotting evil to overthrow good, no? Anyway, keep up the great work.

    • yes and no. They carried on. Dressed in jeans. Grew longer hair. Started having premarital sex more often. Started not attending on a Sunday. Were sold to an extent.
      The revolutions are always made by a minority. The bigger problem are the sheep who follow them.

  10. Truth is in the title. Until the mid-sixties, people had the common sense of right and wrong, good and bad and were able to declare it in families, churches, and schools, and arts. As each of the four began to degenerate, the young over the decades to now have no ‘approved’ moral framework for thought. They’ve turned to selfish feelings of gratification being ‘good’ and deprivation being ‘bad’ and lowest common denominator for goals. It seems that the functional retards are highly susceptible to the new global virus of insanity found in the leaders on whom media focuses. Since Pius XII is pictured here, his eyes stand as example for the clarity and sobriety of those who are being forced into becoming voices in the wilderness,

  11. Here is a quoted passage from Sunday’s column from Fr. Rutler, which, in the last two sentences, well addresses the collapse and rise.

    “An example of insuppressible prophecy was Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea, a representative of the Association of Catholic Doctors of Bucharest, Romania at the Synod on the Family in Rome. In the midst of speeches of varying quality, her brief remarks set a unique tone in the assembly of bishops and consultants. She spoke of her parents who were engaged to be married, but waited seventeen years while her father was a political prisoner of her country’s harsh dictatorship, and her mother kept vigil all that time, not knowing if he was dead or alive. She went on to say: “The Church’s mission is to save souls. Evil, in this world, comes from sin. Not from income disparity or ‘climate change.’ The solution is: Evangelization. Conversion. Not an ever increasing government control. Not a world government. These are nowadays the main agents imposing cultural Marxism on our nations . . . Our Church was suppressed by the Soviet occupation. But none of our 12 bishops betrayed their communion with the Holy Father. . . . Now we need Rome to tell the world: ‘Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.’”

    Seven of the twelve bishops she mentioned died in prison. It was a sobering reflection during a Synod where there were not a few receptions and much dining, most innocent in themselves but different in tone from the laments of the countless Christians suffering in the Middle East. It was also very different in urgency from the offended academics whose pomposity was pricked by an “unqualified” newspaper columnist. They should have been more offended by the Romanian doctor whose only theological credentials were bestowed by the witness of her parents and the blood of her bishops. “
