Papal Fascism


Koot van Wyk


It is relevant for us to look at fascism in our times and especially papal fascism of the past in order to expect a continuity to play out soon after a period of twists and turns.

Maleachi Martin claimed that after 1956 and 1962 with Vatican II, John Paul II has changed his catholic church in something different than it was before 1798 when the “deadly wound” was given according to Bible prophecy in Revelation 13. But that wound was to heal for the first beast, identified by Seventh-day Adventists as the catholic church.

As A. Treiyer shows, also currently pope Francis want to work on the concept of diversity with inclusive paradigms for the common good of the majority. But what about the particularistic ideas of the minorities? Will they be squashed to submission in future? No information. Let us then look at papal fascism in the Catholic system before 1962:


Thomas Aquinas favored Fascism as system of government


The Roman Catholic Scholar in the 12th century, Thomas Aquinas, favored fascism as a system of government.

“In order to rightly rule society, it requires the government of a single person, the monarchy, because it is easier “to reach unity by one person than by many,” Thomas Aquinas, The Monarchy, 14. The entire treatise of De Regno is a permanent advice to the king on how better to obtain peace. The stronger the government, the better the peace obtained. Strength comes from unity, which makes a unipersonal government more convenient, La Monarquía, 19. See A. M. Rosales, El Poder Político en “La Monarquía” de Santo Tomás de Aquino (2011). []” (Treiyer August 2018: 4 footnote 20).


Soul and Body distinction by Thomas Aquinas for church over earthly government


Thomas Aquinas insisted that the church is the soul and the earthly governments are the body. The church is the ruler over the earthly governments.


Pope Pius IX favored Fascistic clamp down on freedom of religion, speech, association and press

In 1864, pope Pius IX issued his encyclical Quanta Cura, “and probably most importantly and best known for its accompanying encyclical known as the ‘Syllabus Of Errors.’ It stated that it would be an error for any good Catholic to believe that the pope could exist without being also a king over his own lands, therefore king over the Papal States. It stated that no Christian could believe in freedom of religion, in freedom of speech, in freedom of association, or freedom of the press, as these were all condemned by the Christian religion.” (Treiyer August 2018: 4 footnote 21) Says Pius IX: ““Freedom of worship is the worst of freedoms. It cannot be sufficiently accursed or abhorred,” Liberty of the Press [MC151]. []” (op. cit. Treiyer August 2018: 4 footnote 23).


Pope Pius XII wanted to use cleric-fascist dictators to return to Middle Ages dominancy


“The last openly antidemocratic pope was Pius XII, who thought that through fascist and clero-fascist dictators, he could again impose papal dominance over the world.” “Ecclesia, the official organ of the Spaniard Catholic Action, proudly extoled Pius XII in 1950 for his support of fascist regimes, and referred to “His Holiness,” as “the best antidemocrat of the world.” The new Roman Catechism denies freedom of conscience when it says that “the right to religious liberty is neither a moral license to adhere to error, nor a supposed right to error” (point 2108). These statements are taken from both popes Leo XIII (Libertas praestantissimum 18) and Pius XII (AAS 1953, 799). These two popes never assimilated the modern concepts of democracy and freedom of conscience.” (Treiyer August 2018: 4 footnote 24).


Fascism defined by Alexandr Dugin


Fascism is defined by Alexandr Dugin, the Russian popular philosopher as follows: “Fascism - this is nationalism yet not any nationalism, but a revolutionary, rebellious, romantic, idealistic [form of nationalism] appealing to a great myth and transcendental idea, trying to put into practice the Impossible Dream, to give birth to a society of the hero and Superhuman, to change and transform the world.”[1]

He also suggest that a heaven of fascism should be created for a superhuman and the world should change. It must be transcendental in thinking albeit including God, Christ, Satan, Allah of Islammic Suffism, astrological symbolism, numerology, with the paradigm of diverse inclusion.


Current role of pope Francis


The papal role out of pope Francis currently is also this inclusive multi-dimensional reality but the agenda is similar to what Dugin has in mind, namely for the common good of the majority. Dugin suggest that wars should be kicked in to bring a radical change and inaugurate his fascistic heaven or neo-Fascist Eurasia to start.
