More > former Soviet bloc, under the Communist state apparatus of repression, in the midst of the baroque art of the Catholic Church. His work subverts the bombast of the authoritarian state and the solemnities of religious piety with a set of symbols even more grimly mechanical and rigidly pious than those he so drily quotes.

More > pictures and very reasonably priced! The book tells the story of how Saint John Paul II politically deployed sacred weapons and profane enemies in his war on communism. The effects of his deployment – chiefly during his three pilgrimages to communist Poland – were to evoke and refashion nationalist and religious cultural memories shaped over centuries and thereby influence the prevailing political culture of opposition. In his doing so, the Polish Pope inspired the opposition to peacefully and successfully challenge a communist regime that had at its disposal a full panoply of repressive forces.< Less

The Pope’s sacred weapons were above all the powerful myths and symbols attached to holy figures, wars, insurrections and martyrdom, and the potent rituals of anniversary commemorations, holy masses, beatifications, canonizations and pilgrimages afforded to him as Head of the Roman Catholic Church.

More > Communism and the destruction of civilized society. It focuses on the downbreeding of existing European populations and of how the worst elements of society are continually outbreeding the best, leading to lower average IQs and civilizational levels. Although directed at Soviet-era communism, the reader will find the discussions on racial and social degeneration appallingly familiar and present in twenty-first century Western societies. Finally, a solution to the problem is proposed: not repression, but eugenics. “Where but in the slender ranks of the racially superior---those 'A' and 'B' stocks which, in America for example, we know to-day constitute barely 13 1/2 per cent of the population? It is this "thin red line" of rich, untainted blood which stands between us and barbarism or chaos."< Less
