Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX),
who is scheduled to be tried in absentia later this month in Germany for
doubting the Holy People's gas chamber relics, comments on the despair
and retirement of journalist Paul Craig Roberts.
Bishop Williamson also makes the point that people indifferent to
investigating who really was behind the 9/11 terror attacks will be
indifferent to finding divine reality: "...how can souls that are
unconcerned to get to the truth, get anywhere near to the true God?"

Another voice of truth risks falling silent in the United States. It is
not, at least overtly, a voice of Catholic truth, but are not the great
problems for truth today not problems specific to Catholics, but
problems so basic that they are common to all men ? Therefore when a
columnist and writer of the stature of Paul Craig Roberts, who has
outstanding Establishment credentials and who was an Assistant Secretary
of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, announces that, apparently
out of discouragement, he is laying aside his pen, it is a sad day for
all of us.
His farewell article of about ten days ago deals precisely with the
universal loss of truth. Its opening section deserves to be quoted at
"There was a time when the pen was mightier than the sword...when
people believed in truth and regarded truth as an independent power and
not as an auxiliary for government, class, race, ideological, personal
or financial interest. Today Americans are ruled by propaganda. They
have little regard for truth, little access to it, and little ability to
recognize it. Truth is an unwelcome entity. It is disturbing. It is
off-limits. Those who speak it run the risk of being branded
"anti-American", "anti-semite" or "conspiracy theorist". Truth is an
inconvenience for government... and for ideologues."
He goes on, "Today many whose goal once was the discovery of truth are
now paid handsomely to hide it." Examples from many domains prove that
"wherever one looks, truth has fallen to money. Wherever money is
insufficient to bury the truth, ignorance, propaganda and short memories
finish the job."
Further examples confirm that "Intelligence and integrity have been
purchased by money... Americans, or most of them, have proved to be
putty in the hands of the police state." They have been brainwashed by
the mainstream media which "do not serve the truth. They serve the
government and the interest groups that empower the government".
Fascinatingly, Roberts argues that "America's fate was sealed when the
public and the anti-war movement bought the government's 9/11 conspiracy
theory. The government's account of 9/11 is contradicted by much
evidence. Nevertheless, that defining event of our time, which has
launched the USA on interminable wars of aggression and a domestic
police state, is a taboo topic for investigation in the media. It is
pointless to complain of war and a police state when one accepts the
premise on which they are based."
I would only add the religious dimension: how can souls grasp the one
true religion of God when they accept the premises on which their whole
godless environment is based? In the early 2000's many Catholics in the
USA did not want to hear sermons emphasizing the fraud of 9/11, but how
can souls that are unconcerned to get to the truth, get anywhere near to
the true God? How can souls losing their taste for reality keep any
taste for the supreme realities of the soul and the after-life?
Roberts concludes sadly, "As the pen is censored and its might
extinguished, I am signing off."
No, dear Dr. Roberts. The pen is still, despite all appearances,
mightier than the sword, only not if it is dropped. Keep writing,
however few be the souls that will still read you for the sake of the
truth, because such souls, like the Truth, "are mighty and will
