Why Russia? Perhaps because it was among the first of the Catholic countries to split away from the Western Church in the Great Schism? In parallel, they would also undergo this great spiritual chastisement first and emerge first into the true faith. Perhaps the political-social order is arranged in such a way that Russia is the only effective instrument God could find?
Or, to keep things simple, perhaps it's just because God said so. After all, He's God. "Let there be light. And there was light."
God has already decided what will happen to Europe and Russia. He is now placing the United States into the balance to be weighed. The United States has been given a chance with Donald Trump to begin our conversion as a nation. We can accept it, or we can reject it. Whichever we do will determine our fate in God's plan.
The Russian elite is corrupt, there is no question. They do not practice the true faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and they do not have a political system founded upon it. God has plans to take care of that. The Russian elite in the aftermath of the fall of Communism does seem to be insular and is not the same as the free-masonic satanists in the West. Russia is outside of their control. God wills it.
The United States was not founded a Catholic country. Demographically, it could've become one around the time of Roe vs. Wade and if the American Catholics hadn't been so susceptible to the changes in the 1960s both in the Church and in American culture. It may yet become one given continuation in certain demographic trends. It almost looks like God keeps trying to convert our country. Oh wait, He is, and every other country besides.
What America did correctly, though, was establish a governmental system that was in the entire age of the nation-state, with the possible exception of Switzerland, the most thoroughly based on the natural law tradition. "Conceived in liberty," as Murray Rothbard put it. We will leave the ante-Westphalian world out of our analysis for now. We will also leave an analysis of the true definition of 'liberty' for another article.
The American system far better than others, and until nearly the same time as the Bolshevik revolution, upheld a governmental system that did not violate its people's natural right to property. While we have pointed out the moral order is greater than just the libertarian assertion of the non-aggression principle, Catholics and many others often do not appreciate just how important property rights are to enduring Christian [that is to say Catholic] freedom. It is in fact only through a highly-centralized system that Satanists can find the power to impose their will on all of humanity. Conversely, the Church reached Her height of influence during the highly-decentralized pre-Westphalian political order.
We have argued elsewhere that this dichotomy will eventually be resolved.
The American system, therefore, founded in many ways upon the same principles as those illustrated by the Spanish Scholastics and their heirs the Austrian economists is, in this way at least, by no means one entirely at odds with the Catholic world order. If we trust - fully - in God again we will not undergo the full extent of the chastisement that will befall the world that has given itself over to Satan.
But my people heard not my voice: and Israel hearkened not to me. So I let them go according to the desires of their heart: they shall walk in their own inventions. If my people had heard me: if Israel had walked in my ways: I should soon have humbled their enemies, and laid my hand on them that troubled them.Trump is the test.
And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.
