Every major question in history is a religious question. It has more effect in molding life than nationalism or a common language. Belloc

What Americans do not realize is the real fight between far-left and either moderate or far-right politics in Europe. More money was just give last week to help the still-floundering Euro. But, what is more crucial is the spiritual soul of Europe, which has been weakened by years of Catholics not understanding the dangers of the materialist, as in Modernist heresy, philosophy completely taking over the thought of Europe. Church teaching seems to be completely ignored in the far-left, so-called Catholic commentators here. How France goes, except for Germany, there goes Europe.

Excessive debt is being backed by those who want the ruin of conservative values.

In the Autumn, I was amazed at the Italian commentators referring to the syndicalist movement, which many Americans have never studied, as a movement alive and well in Italy. I had studied the syndicalist movement when looking at Italian history and the notebooks of Gramsci. That these movements, including anarchy, which are alive and well as movements which are basically anti-political process, have gained ground among the youth  in Europe. Sadly, these people are being used by other groups to break down Europe as a civilization.

Americans cannot see that the same thing is happening in America. Slowly, but surely, those who do not want the traditions of Christian culture, Christian family life, even Christian business, are winning the media battle here in Europe.

If Sarkozy, who has not been the best leader at all, loses out to the more radical groups, all of Europe is affected. What I see is envy (against, believe it or not, Germany and those nations who bailed out the more socialist nations) and the use of the European crisis as an excuse to get rid of conservatives. The Marxist language of class struggle. a language based on false premises of materialism and utopianism. 44.5 million people could vote today, and, at noon, only 28% of those who can vote have done so.

The far-left are pushing for the civil unions of homosexuals and weak immigration legislation. This is against the possibly most unpopular president to seek re-election in this first round.

Please don't give the euro more importance than it actually has, whatever its legislators want you to do; you write "five pounds" and "twenty dollars," so you should write "euro" without the initial capital.

France has never forgiven the U.S. for bailing it out in and after WWII. Similarly, and for the same reasons, I would suppose, other European countries will find Germany's largesse insufferable.
