An extended excerpt:

“My friends, all this might seems self-evident, and it even sounds good, but there is a rub! Countries in Europe decided that they will overstep their Christianity, and will even overstep their own nationality. They want to enter a post-Christian and post-national era. Today the questions are clearly visible: Are we going to continue on the road set by the principles of Christian life and national cultures? Will we still believe in moral truths independent of time and space? For those questions, we presently give different answers. There are some countries that answer YES, and there are those who answer with a NO. The big question of the future: How will a united Europe come from this?

My friends, there is one way I am sure there will not be: if each of us wants to force upon the other our mentality, our interests and goals. There is only one way to retain our unity, and that is if we accept our differences, if we have mutual respect. And instead of the United States of Europe, we create the Alliance of Free European Nations. There is no other way!

Respected Congress, my dear friends! Now I would like to talk about what and why we have to defend. It is a well-known fact that we Hungarians do not like empires. We especially do not like their rulers. We do not like it when the fate of our nation, instead of in our own, is in the hands of the rulers of an empire. Today an empire is once again threatening us. We are an obstruction to a plan that wants to eliminate nations and wants to create a mixed-race Europe. We are an obstruction to a financial and political empire that wants to execute this plan, no matter the cost.

Let’s not prevaricate! For the sake of the execution of the Soros plan, over all of Europe, they want to clear out of the way the governments that represent national interests, including us. In recent years Soros’ NGOs encompassed all determinant levels of the European decision-making process. They are also present in some Hungarian parties in the heartland. They behave like the activists of the Agitation and Propaganda Department of the late Soviet Communist Party. We — old warhorses — can recognize them by their stench! With more refined methods.

But Soros’ soldiers want to determine for us what we shall do, what to think, and moreover what we ourselves should be. [reference to progressive gender theory] For so long the situation was so simple: a human being was a man or a woman, was mother or father. Hungarian, German, or perhaps Russian, Christian or Muslim. Today, they want to force us into a world where these natural and clear outlines are definitely missing. That world has no sure points. It is not clear who is a man or a woman, what a family is, what it means to be Hungarian and Christian. They create a third gender, they mock fate, they qualify families as unnecessary, nations as outdated.

My dear friends, let’s speak clearly! Migration is not the goal but the instrument the of the Soros plan. Millions of people who ended up in unfortunate circumstances from Africa and the Middle East are lured to Europe, moreover are directly transported there, to weaken the nations and provide the final blow to Christian culture.

Let’s speak honestly: in that way, the Soros plan seriously endangers the safety of our everyday life, too. In the immigration-accepting countries of Europe, terror attacks become frequent, crime has increased, violence against women has multiplied, and anti-Semitism has flamed up again. That is what we must prevent! That is the danger we must protect our country from! When we say: let’s defend Hungary, we advertise that we must protect our work, our families, our safety, our rule of law, our industry and the Hungarian culture. And we must defend our future too.

What we did not tolerate from the Soviet empire, we will not tolerate from the Soros empire, either! We will defend our borders, we will prevent the implementation of the Soros plan, and finally, we will also win this fight!”

“This, in short, is the difference between us and others who know not God, that in misfortune they complain and murmur, while the adversity does not call us away from the truth of virtue and faith, but strengthens us by its suffering.”

“Liberalism is our biggest threat to our culture and our way of life” …

“I think the left causes people to sell themselves out to identity and all sorts of ideas and idealisms and so forth. The left encourages them to take these multiculturalism, diversity, inclusion, all these sorts of things, and identify with them and give themselves a self esteem based on these empty idealisms that have no connection to reality.”

Malcolm Muggeridge: “Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself”

13 November 2017

Malcolm Muggeridge

 

 

“So the final conclusion would surely be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions, and then providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over–a weary, battered old brontosaurus–and became extinct.”

Nektarios of Aegina: “A Christian must be courteous to all.”

“A Christian must be courteous to all.

His words and deeds should breath with the grace of the Holy Spirit, which abides in his soul, so that in this way he might glorify the name of God.

He who regulates all of his speech also regulates all of his actions.

He who keeps watch over the words he is about say also keeps watch over the deeds he intends to do, and he never goes out of the bounds good and benevolent conduct.

The graceful speech of a Christian is characterized by delicateness and politeness.

This fact, born of love, produces peace and joy.

On the other hand, boorishness gives birth to hatred, enmity, affliction, competitiveness, disorder and wars.”

St. Nektarios of Aegina, The Path to Happiness
