Drawing from historical examples, Mr. Potter gives a “Social Kingship 101″ spelling out exactly what is meant by Christ’s social kingship, and why it must be the foundation of any just and enduring civilized society.

Speech #4—Jim Condit, Jr.
The 2012 Presidential Election and a Society for Christ the King
Far from being a “who to vote for President” speech, Jim Condit talks about some of the ways that those who strive for the Social Kingship of Christ can take real steps in that direction. Jim discusses the “Watch the Vote” movement, beseeching good American Catholics to become involved in the election process to prevent the underhanded practices often witnessed towards truly-conservative statesmen.
Speech #5—Dr. Robert Sungenis
Corruption of a Discipline: The Chimera of “Science” and Its Stranglehold on the Modern Mind
Dr. Sungenis speaks about the group of men who have combined to form one of the powerful criminal syndicates that dominate our modern society. These men call themselves scientists, but they are actually a powerful clique of superstitious liars who have formed one of the most pernicious propaganda machines ever established, that promotes their own religions views that are implacably opposed to the creator and his right to reign over society.
Speech #6—James G. Bruen Jr., Esq.
Law in the Ruins: Good Americans and Bad Catholics at a Time Near the End of the Law
Drawing from several examples in the past century, James Bruen asserts that Catholics (at least those who are not fighting contrary to Church teaching), have been selling themselves short by fighting the battle for morality on the plane of civil rights instead of the plane of the natural moral law.
Speech #7—Dr. Peter Chojnowski
Prospects for a Catholic Recovery: A Blueprint for a Distributist Community
Starting from from sound Thomistic priciples and proceeding immediately to the actions that are necessary to incarnate our Faith in this world, to make it tangible and visible, Dr. Chojnowski tells the story of the mini-economic system that was designed to become a small parallel economy following the advice of Fr. Vincent McNabb.
Speech #8—Robert Hanten
What Grows After the Fire — Catholic Principles of Financial and Economic Reconstruction
From his perspective as a financial analyst, Robert Hanten describes the coming financial collapse and explains why it is inevitable. From his perspective as a forester he uses an analogy from nature to illustrate the situation we are in and what happens to the forest (our current national economy) after the fire. The prognosis for our economy is bad, but Mr. Hanten ends on an optimistic note.. “To those who love God all things work to the good.”
Speech #9—John Vennari
Father Denis Fahey against the New Barbarians
John Vennari gives the famous Six Point Program for the establishment of God’s Divine Plan for Order in Society as presented in the works of Father Denis Fahey, who is one of the best proponents of Catholic social teachings in the 20th Century.
Father Fahey does not propose his own ‘doctrine,’ rather he reiterates clearly the perennial teaching of the Church which Mr. Vennari makes perfectly clear.
Speech #10—Gary Potter
What Does “The Social Reign of Christ the King” Mean? Part II
This second portion of Mr. Potter’s presentation begins with a substantial exposition of the nature and attributes of Kingship and sovereignty. He then discusses the nature of a Christian state versus a liberal democracy, and why a Christian state can only spring from a Christian culture. Included is a powerful meditation upon to the matter of freewill and human freedom.
Speech #11—John Sharpe
Property Ownership in the Catholic and Classical Traditions: Tools for a Revolution of Return
Continuing to espouse the principles he presented earlier, Mr. Sharpe speaks of one element of positive action that we would like to see come to fruition quickly in order to lay the groundwork for a Christian society. We must abolish the wage system as we know it and replace it with property ownership.
Speech #12—Dr. David Allen White
“Let’s Pretend”: The Proper Role of the Arts in Catholic Culture
The essence of Dr. White’s superb presentation lies in his philosophical clarification of how the arts, especially the linguistic arts, are fundamental to the definition of a human being and how humanity and the Christian civilization produced by the Catholic arts is being systematically and maliciously reduced to neo-pagan barbarism by the attack on language and the arts.
Speech #13—Daniel McAdams
The Totalitarianism of the Global Democratic Revolutions
Daniel McAdams, with 20 years of experience working in foreign policy affairs both abroad and on Capitol Hill, discusses current American foreign policy initiatives. He speaks of the currently ongoing Global Democratic Revolution in its various incarnations in such places as Hungary, Serbia, Albania, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tunisia, Egypt, and other places around the globe. And he points out how the efforts by the U.S. government to create a one-world “democratic” revolution owes its current successes to the groundwork laid by the National Endowment for Democracy (founded 1983) and the anti-Stalinist Trotskyites who have controlled the Republican party since the 1970’s and who have also had the Democrat party largely under their control here in America for many years.
