‘Wake up and DRINK the coffee!’ – A know-it-all’s guide to getting yourself (body & soul) into heaven while elevating the culture here on planet Earth. (aka ‘the sane person’s guide to living’)
Intro – Everything I know I learned from stalking my mother.
Chapter I – Become Catholic! It’s really that important!
Chapter II – Family Matters – How the traditional family can save western civilization – no abortion, contraception, etc.
Chapter III – Walk & Think – it will keep you happy & healthy!
Chapter IV – Eat, Drink and Be Merry! Try to grow your own food and certainly learn to cook for yourself!
Chapter V– Got Education? Me no think so.
College or high-priced nonsense – not to mention where are all the great careers we see on TV sitcoms?
A few places you could send your kids and lots you shouldn’t.
Chapter VI – History – Knowledge is power –
Why is western civilization (Ted Byfield) getting a bad rap?
A waste of time or a treasure trove? (Manning Center)- historical mindset – grasp of history
History vs. Ideology – what up with worshiping dead dictators (Mao 72 million dead, countless wounded)?
Chesterton – never take a fence down till you know why it was put there.
The big 3 – Crusades, Inquisition, Galileo – unprovoked attack of militant Christians by victim Muslims?
Muslims invaded Spain 8th century and 8 hundred years later Spanish to keep them out. Not aimed at Jews, aimed at Muslims ever 200 (years?) under Muslim attack. Trying to stop Muslim problem – violent people say they will take the country over.
Galileo staying in a palatial palace, contending that no law should inhibit work of science – basis of his defense vs. fear of science (all research had been done by clergy) “no law ever inhibit work of science” – abortion, cloning, selling body parts (Planned Parenthood)
Good Guys and Bad Guys – whose side are you on? Heroes & Villains – St. Paul. Athanasius (vs. Arian heresy – he was the only bishop ) Athanasius contra mundum – against the world – soldiers coming up the Nile he goes opposite and he says, “You’re very near to him now.” who opposed this whom movement – it gave us the Nicene creed, Villains – bishops & clergy remain on payroll abandoned & undermine Christianity, chain of emperors suppressed faith first 1000 years, popes in 9th century. Pope can be a very bad actor. Conquistadors in Latin America (clergy/priests opposed them). Priests – wouldn’t it be more racist not to tell natives realities of heaven and hell?

Snews – Where do you get yours? Not all sources are created equal. How am I supposed to know more than the people who are reporting it on site? Good question! The media is the battleground. We have to get into the English media – know your history and use it to win the cultural war. Boomers are the common enemy
Chapter VII – Literature – The Good, the bad and the ugly
Chapter VIII – Arts & Crafts – They’re not just for kids!
Let’s Define Art – good, true, beautiful
Why it’s good to know how to do stuff – grow food, fix things, build things
Chapter IX – Is your Home a Hotel?
Chapter X – We’re on Life Support (mostly dead, which is partly alive) so Your contribution is Vital
