Dignity comes from work, not money, pope tells young people

ROME — Promoting employment is a key part of promoting and protecting human dignity, especially the dignity of young men and women, Pope Francis said.
If this is a doctrine of Catholic faith, then this is another good reason why Catholic Americans must see to the public excommunicate of Joe Biden.


No one ever accused Donald Trump of failing to promote jobs and an environment of full employment.

The micro economics of one's own family is much more important than the macro economics of national and global culture.
The universal idea of "one having their own family" is in itself a "global" idea.

Otherwise one's sense of identity wouldn't extend beyond the immediate family or "tribe" - so there would be no need for ideas and institutions (e.x. such as churches with a worldwide following, nations, global ideas such as "localism" being applicable to people universally - and so on).

Yes, "Family" is a universal human institution. That's why I am saying that we should focus more on supporting families, and less on government policies and schools and programs and such.

A culture with strong families can survive an era of bad government, crushing inflation, and lots of other Biden-stuff.

But a culture of weak, broken families and epidemic fatherless homes cannot support ourselves, much less any sort of adequate government. In soviet amerika, we'll all be miserable. And there will be Biden-levels of corruption throughout every level of government.

Families of my generation got through the inflation and race riots of the '70's.

But I don't know if families of the 2020's are strong enough to hold their communities together. After 50 years of indoctrinating young people with critical theories regarding race, class, and gender.... The Democrats may finally defeat us.

We need to unthink the notion that government has a role in everything. It's time to start undoing some government stuff.

Let's start with closing down the federal Department of Health & Human Services. They try to manage our lives with everything from education and healthcare to birth control and childcare -- and we don't want any of it from them.
