Has the left won?

I happen to have a long list of blogs and other opinion sites that I sample using Internet RSS feeds, though I'm sure lots of people wouldn't consider my lest to be particularly long. At any rate, one of the feeds I monitor is The Black Sphere. Evidently, Kevin Jackson, or a member of his blogging team, came across an interesting example of conservative "speculative journalism" on another site, RightVoice Media, entitled, "Surrender." Kevin's link to the piece is entitled, "Has the Left Won?"

What is Modernism, really, and why is it a problem?

It was Blessed Pope Pius IX who first condemned modernism (although, evidently, not by that name, per se) in his "Syllabus of Errors." In ¶ 80, he condemned the proposition that "The Roman Pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern civilization." Among the ideas the Church was expected to reconcile itself with at the time was the Communism of Karl Marx. By the time of Pius X, the Church was expected to reconcile itself with the Eugenics of Sir Francis Galton.
