Point 148. The Phalange... communitarian

1. The Phalangist knows that “ the Kingdom of God is already amongst us ”, that faith is the way to life, and that charity towards God is realised in love of one’s neighbour. He applies himself in the first place to the communities to which he belongs by birth or situation: his family, his locality, and his corporation. The ecology of the Phalange shows him their flaws and present difficulties and makes him ardently desire their perfect restoration. His optimism and his Christian virtue commit him to working daily for this restoration with all his might.

2. However grave it may be, the state of the French community, of its former empire, as well as of the state of the world, are not desperate. If natural health, if Christian sanctity were not present and ever active among us, it is only too certain that atheist totalitarianism and capitalo-socialist corruption would soon decisively prevail over the community of civilised peoples and even over Christianity. Falling birth-rate, debauchery, crime, impiety, anarchy, appalling wars and genocides, all manifestations of Satan who is Prince of this world, would have subverted everything. Well, it is not so! God is with us. Evil is still, is always, curable.

3. The Phalangist, however, must fight laboriously in the front line against the economic, social and moral disorders of which he is the direct witnesses, disorders that constitute a temptation for him and that could lead him astray. He sets an example of behaviour diametrically opposed to these squalid morals: he has many well-educated children; he maintains good order and exercises domestic authority; he collaborates with competence and devotion in the activities of his locality and profession. In the second line, penetrating the opposing resistance more deeply, he must take part in the great heroic fight for civilised nationalism against politico-economic democracy. He supports the overturning of this regime of death and the godless subversion that dominate the world with their monstrous powers, failing which nothing would remain of our humble efforts at ecological restoration. In the third and last line, the Phalangist will enlist in the fight against irreligion or rather anti-religion, which forms the true basis for all modern evil, the Beast of the Apocalypse. He will fight for the establishment of a wise and holy order of Catholic Counter-Reformation and Renaissance in his country and in the world.
