Catholic Regional Message Board
Most series or films became political because to the Academic elite who rule the media and studios, everything is politics, even on microcosmic aspect, this is in fact a cultural totalitarianism, when all aspects of society and the individual must be always linked with a political agenda.
Well let's be honest here, Star Trek was ALWAYS progressive, the UFP is a multicultural diversified democracy that became a superpower dealing with mostly isolationist empires or traditional societies, it is an atheist universe despite the UFP having religious tolerance, on Deep Space Nine they give the other side of the coin and the other every non-UFP species mocked the Federation for it's moralism, hypocrisy and naivete, ironically exactly what I say about Western Civilization today. When a ferengi, a political neutral libertarian capitalist to the extreme civilization citizen mocked Sisko for the Erath having history of genocide and they don't because it don't give any profit, that was one of the best moments of the series, when the Romulans (or Klingons?) mocked how the Federation is "sweet" while drinking a harmless modified alcohol with no side effects made by the Federation, my God, the Romulans and Klingons get a point that episode.
Even the Borg Collective have it's moments, with the exception of individuality they are exactly everything that UFP aim, arguing that UFP would need to be like them to survive or there will be dissenters.
The Left remembers the Federation, and the Block League Masters look like the Borg Collective but with the Klingon capacity of violence, the Social Media is their borg cubes, and the media, and sadly it includes Star Wars and Star Trek, is just borg nanoprobes trying to assimilate us, the assimilation now happen since childhood on schools (I was a communist until 14!) and the mass assimilation centers of course are the University, the Academia is Unimatrix Zero, and they are invincible today.
The same thing happened to me, I almost quit the game, but I couldn't leave a community like this one!
This is good commentary on how there is kind of a generational clash going on today.
Does anyone here follow instagram accounts about History?
As bordering Zeemer Millennial, I can say that the word "tradition" is most of the minds of Millennials and Z is seen as opposed to the what we love so much too.
This was a mistake and part of us Millennial and Zeemers already perceived it:
We thought that technology would always make life better.
And this leads to: Tradition is an old thing, we must destroy everything and build a new world.
We got our Brave New World, enslaved by smartphones since teenagers or childhood.
And culturally it leads to progressivism, as it was sold as the "way to the future, that will let us free and equal."
We don't became free, we don't became equal, we became anxious depressed people without real friends, with "liquid" relationships and that in most cases became desperate, to the point of people crying because don't received more than 50 likes on a photo, eager for external validation.
On the Church there is two problems:
1- We live on a "libido dominandi" society, almost everything is about power, money and sex. To be a priest, on most rites of the Catholic Church, you need to abandon these three things, the problem is that most of us were show to porn, some to the point of addiction since childhood, sex outside marriage is considered ridiculous by today standards, in fact even monogamous sex is considered ridiculous. This will obviously lead to a total lack of priest.
2 - Most priests on the Catholic Church are elders, and this enhance what Millennial-Z Generations think about it, it's an old, middle ages, without technology (so, a nightmare) outdated Institution that for example say that there is only two genders and opposes gay marriage (to most of us, not me, this is an extreme outrage, a "fascism"), our generation don't ever lived on a Christian Culture, our culture was made by fashion, by the meme of the moment, we must show more of an intellectual church to smart people and a charismatic one to the rest, we must not show only love but intelligence, we have a lot of philosophers and saints with things to say, but most of our generation don't ever read them because the educational system mostly censor it or because it was said in a dumb way by a boomer, that now claims ageism but until the Z's got the "Ok Boomer" card, was always making joke about how loser we are compared to them.
I have a problem with Boomers, Ok Boomer it is not about conservatism, it is because Boomers invented the smartphone, I will never forgive them for it!
Instagram? I'm not into drugs, thank you.
PS: I am not intended to offend you Brother, but I hate Social Media so much that I needed to say that, I used Instagram for one day and hated it, well, there is good sites and channels about history, even on YT that is now behaving like a social media censoring almost every conservative non-progressive historical narrative today, but there is things like that.
Oh and a good metal band about military history:
You may hear it and history channels on Spotify too.
Are you talking like accounts devoted to the discipline of history or more like comedic meme history accounts?
Dude I already knew that band was Sabaton just from how you described it! Amazing stuff. Weird enough it was the last stand and also listening to an actual crusader song about St. Louis IX that made me finally decide to study the faith (well it's more like a desire for truth and for finding the purpose of life, these songs were just the trigger to finally get me to get off my lazy behind and start studying the faith.)
Funny enough the Last Stand is about the Swiss Guard but all of youtube seems to think it's about the Crusades.
"Then the 189
In the service of heaven
They're protecting the holy line
It was 1527
Gave their lives on the steps to heaven
Thy will be done!
For the grace, for the might of our lord
For the home of the holy
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Gave their lives so boldly
For the grace, for the might of our lord
In the name of his glory
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Come and tell their story again"
I don't usually listen to heavy metal rock but Sabaton will always be one of my favourite bands.
Honestly I can somewhat see the argument of our generation (me being a Millennial born growing up with a mix of gen Z and Millennials being born at that same time) being a tad bit too extreme. Some people fly off the handle and reject the Pope and other stuff because of abuses. We should call out when bad stuff happens, yes, but not reject the Church.
At the same time we need to show the world, as you very well put it, the intelligence and love of the Church. I'd add that we need to show the world our piety for God and the beauty of God and His Church. We need to show people that life isn't just aimlessly going about doing nothing. I think this is why stoicism (which does have flaws as much as I like it) is becoming more popular. That is to say that stoicism encourages taking action and enduring life's suffering.
Overall I think hedonism, the belief that as long as we are materially provided for and that we are comfortable that we will be content with our lives and that living such a life is good, is one of the greatest evils of our time. Then again maybe I have that sentiment because of my specific sins
I am disgusted by my sin and hate it very much not because I'm some sort of oppressed man who hates himself but because I love the sacred gift of sexuality God has given all of us. When you love something you want to protect it. Why must acts so vile have pleasure mixed in. Why must acts so vile even exist. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. Why do I occasionally fall for the temptation to do it? I'd say addiction though apparently even though gambling is an addiction it's controversial to say that porn is an addiction...honestly if it's not an addiction I am the most weak willed person in the history of humanity (I'm a wimp but not that much of a wimp) because I am literally disgusted to the point of wanting to vomit, which I'm only half exaggerating because sometimes I actually want to vomit, when I think of porn and masturbation...and even when I do said sins I'm just immediately sad because I know I've betrayed Jesus. It's 3 seconds of pleasure and a living hell (being separated from God...seems like the world "living hell" is accurate here) until I go to Confession and repent.
Compared to my parents I live a very privileged and spoiled life. As far as I'm aware this is essentially Gen Z and Millennials in a nut shell. If people want to say Boomers were privileged then idk what Gen Z and Millennials are. This obsession we have with always being comfortable has messed us up. It's our very privilege that messed us up. The humble shall be exalted not the people who treat themselves as "gods."
There was a lot of snobbery t'wards the Phantom Menace from the older audience who wanted a film geared exclusively for them rather than kids.
I thought is was the best of the bunch; it had something for everyone.
Sadly the reaction was so bad the creators lost control and it was bludgeoned by other interests from that point.
