Or should that be The Greater Reset on Archangel Radio Podcast? For today’s podcast, we again let somebody else do all the work of producing it while we just talk . . . mostly about our new book, The Greater Reset, but also about fundamental principles that should guide economic, political, and even personal life. That’s why, despite the fact that The Greater Resetis from a “Catholic publisher,” it’s really for everyone because it’s based on universal principles of natural law that apply across the board to everyone:

Again, this week we have a significant number of situations that could be settled and problems that could solved if countries adopted the Economic Democracy Act. So, why doesn’t anyone implement the EDA? Is it stubbornness, ignorance . . . or something else? Without discounting stubbornness or ignorance, recent research suggests that another factor should also be considered: that the current paradigm isn’t held by reason, but by faith.

In the previous posting on this subject, we noted that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s worldview is not entirely connected with reality, i.e., does not constitute “truth.” Truth, of course, means conformity with reality. Anytime you hear someone prating of a higher truth that goes beyond reality, he (or she) is lying, is mistaken, or is simply ignorant.

Despite Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s accusations of “Nazi” against anyone who has become the target of his ire, many people have commented on the resemblance of Adolf Hitler’s ideology and that of Putin, as well as other things, such as Hitler’s concept of Greater Germany as an alliance of all Aryan peoples, and Putin’s “Rusky Mir,” or “Russian World,” a Pan Slavic union of all Russian-speaking peoples under the leadership of Moscow . . . whether they want it or not.

Perhaps not unexpectedly, the news items have a depressing sameness, which will continue to be the case as long as we delay adopting the Economic Democracy Act. At that point, we can have an invigorating sameness, right? In any event, here are this week’s news items:

This past Sunday, May 15, 2022, an article appeared in the Washington Post that cast some light on the beliefs and antics of Russian Dictator Vladimir Putin, “The Far-Right Mystical Writer Who Helped Shape Putin’s View of Russia” (p. B-4). It was written by Tara Isabella Burton, author of Strange Rites (2020), a book which examines the odd turns that religion has taken in the United States, especially under the influence of what Pope Gregory XVI in 1834 called rerum novarum, “New Things,” today better known as socialism, modernism, and the New Age.

As has become usual, this week Putin’s War on Ukraine is the focus of the Just Third Way. Frankly, not only is the Just Third Way pretty much the only game left in town when it comes to what’s going to happen after the war, it is becoming increasingly obvious that had it been in place before the war, there would not even have been a “before” to talk about, as the war very likely would not have happened in the first place. In any event, here are this week’s news items:

As the war in Ukraine drags on, even after Putin’s rousing Victory Day speech (described by one news source as “treading water” and by another as a tacit admission of defeat), President Zelenskyy still has the three goals he has had almost from the beginning of the first, greatest, and most unnecessary European war of this century:

Today we have Part II of II of Jeff “the Regular Catholic Guy” Garrett’s interview on The Greater Reset: Reclaiming Personal Sovereignty Under Natural Law from TAN Books, featuring co-authors Michael D. Greaney and Dawn K. Brohawn. Ironically, given that today is Putin's Victory Day celebration, while the book was not written with Putin’s War in mind, the solution given in it to counter the “Great Reset” of Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum applies just as well — if not better — to the problems Putin has created:

. . . in a general way, of course. To paraphrase the military aphorism, no business plan survives contact with reality. A business plan, like a book outline or a military campaign, must be flexible and readily adaptable to new conditions as they change. If, on the other hand, a plan, outline, or operation is followed rigidly regardless of reality, only by chance will disaster be averted.
