Laying to Rest the Speculative European

The democratic movements throughout Europe in the 1840s were extensions of the French Revolution that Burke warned would envelop all of Europe if the Jacobin snake was scotched but not killed. The so-called Civil War in the United States was our extension of the French Revolution: the Jacobin North made war on the Christian South. Though all the democratic bloodbaths were couched in high-sounding words such as freedom, equality, fraternity, and emancipation, the intent in each and every democratic movement was the same – to supplant the Christian faith, the guiding light of the European people, and replace that faith with the darkness of liberalism. And by World War I the Jacobins’ utopian dream had become a reality. It’s significant that Woodrow Wilson justified his anti-nation’s entrance into the war with the words, “The world must be made safe for democracy.” He did not say that the European nations needed to become democracies; that would have implied a pre-1840s Europe. He said that the world needed to be made safe for democracy, which implied, correctly, that the European nations had become liberal democracies and were now an aggressive, expanding power determined to destroy all the non-democratic elements – translation: non-liberal elements – in their own and other nations. And let us have no doubt that when we are talking about democracies we are talking about utopian, liberal states completely opposed to European Christianity. They might be compatible with speculative Christianity, but they are not in line with bred-in-the-bone European Christianity, which is the only Christianity that St. Paul and our European forefathers knew.
