I do not completely understand the politics between Russia and Ukraine, even after having it explained to me.
But I can see that there has long been an effort underway to cajole us into supporting an American military intervention in the event Russia invaded Ukraine, and there is a Big Party Line that we are supposed to adopt now that this has happened.
I do not think I am equipped to opine as to which side is in the right in this conflict. But after two solid years of wall-to-wall lies out of government, big business and their publicity agents in the "news" media, I am hard-pressed to see why I should believe anything they say about this affair now, or go in the direction to which they are now trying to drive me.
Meanwhile, at least it's reassuring to know that while the world is melting down, the Catholic hierarchy is hard at work on projects that really matter, like stamping out the traditional Mass in parochial churches, and the Synod on Synodality.
