     The term “political theology” has never been a more adequate definition of any corpus of thought[1] created by a philosopher, than when applied to the work of Spanish traditionalist Juan Donoso Cortés (1809-1853), who affected the social teachings of the Catholic Church (in statements of Blessed Pope Pius IX) in such a material way, that contemporary Catholic writer Rino Cammilleri is fully justified to call Cortés “the Father of the Syllabus”[2].

Social centers, white monkeys, red flags. With the iconografic complement of Marcos and the Che Guevara. Soon, you give account that no one of them puts in discussion the Global Dogma, the interdependence of the towns and the cultures, the melting pot and the multiracial society, the end of the father countries. They are internationalist, humanitarian, ecumenist, globalist. It is more: the more extremist and violent they are, the more internationalist and antitraditional they are”.
