The first episode of Root of the Rot after the midseason break is quite possibly the most important we have ever done.  It discusses the French Revolution in its inception and execution until the Napoleonic era.

We start by examining the definition of revolution as it is defined by Father Denis Fahey, C.S.Sp., what it does to the social order of society, and how it affects both Church and State.  We also examine the unique perspective of Americans, as the young United States played an integral role in inspiring the French Revolution.

The new French "values" of "liberty, equality, and fraternity" are also well dissected and examined.  Sure, they sound nice, but what do they really mean? How have these principles of the French Revolution permeated into the modern mind as dogmas, and what do these principles actually mean once one scratches the surface beyond their lofty sound and seemingly acceptable aims?

The Declaration of the Rights of Man, another Masonic triumph in the vein of "liberty, equality, and fraternity," is also looked at, as well as the role of Freemasonry and Judaism.

As Pope Leo XIII wrote in his encyclical letter Tametsi Futura Prospicientibus: "The world has heard enough about the "rights of man." Let it hear something about the rights of God." (cf. Tametsi, #13, 1900)

Join us as His Excellency, Bishop Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude the Great Catholic Church in West Chester, Ohio and host Stephen Heiner review this important part of history that has produced so many effects that modern man still feels today.
