“…Subsidiarity is the opposing social and economic moral principle to the globalists’ nightmare vision of a biologically- and digitally-controlled central government for the whole world.
Pope Pius XI, 1931 encyclical On Social Reconstruction (Quadragesimo anno):
As history abundantly proves, it is true that on account of changed conditions many things which were done by small associations in former times cannot be done now save by large associations. Still, that most weighty principle, which cannot be set aside or changed, remains fixed and unshaken in social philosophy: Just as it is gravely wrong to take from individuals what they can accomplish by their own initiative and industry and give it to the community, so also it is an injustice and at the same time a grave evil and disturbance of right order to assign to a greater and higher association what lesser and subordinate organizations can do. For every social activity ought of its very nature to furnish help to the members of the body social, and never destroy and absorb them.
The supreme authority of the State ought, therefore, to let subordinate groups handle matters and concerns of lesser importance, which would otherwise dissipate its efforts greatly. Thereby the State will more freely, powerfully, and effectively do all those things that belong to it alone because it alone can do them: directing, watching, urging, restraining, as occasion requires and necessity demands. Therefore, those in power should be sure that the more perfectly a graduated order is kept among the various associations, in observance of the principle of "subsidiary function," the stronger social authority and effectiveness will be [and] the happier and more prosperous the condition of the State.
…Subsidiarity is a fully-developed social, political and economic moral philosophy that can be used to better challenge and defeat the Luciferian secularist-communist-socialist-capitalist-materialist enslavement system proposed by the deranged lunatics now gathered in Davos.
Subsidiarity can be used to build up the kinds of human societies that Our Lord Jesus Christ wants us to live in, instead…
Covid-times exposed the preemption doctrine — the opposite of subsidiarity — imposed on a global scale.
The transnational corporate powers effectively preempted nation-state powers, using fear (psychological manipulation through centralized, captured mass media); legal mechanisms; and financial coercion…”
May 23, 2023 - A three-part spiritual-geopolitical framework.
“…I’ve also been gathering information and thinking about the parallel process through which the same forces working to sterilize, sicken and kill lots of people, have also pursued — in a similarly deliberate, incremental, covert way — the destruction of the Catholic Church, the Mystical Body of Christ. Some of the relevant events in Catholic Church history are included in the American Domestic Bioterrorism Program [timeline].
I agree with Malachi Martin and many others past and present, who believe, compile evidence, and argue that the destruction of the Roman Catholic Church specifically, and especially the authority of the Pope, has long been a top priority for supernatural beings (Lucifer, Satan, all fallen angels) and for their human contractors (Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Kissinger, Gates, Schwab, Soros, Hariri, Adhanom-Ghebreyesus, Becerra, Fauci and hundreds of others).
Because the worldwide spiritual moral leadership and exhortation of the popes of Christendom, on civil authorities during the centuries since Christ walked on the earth, have been the primary forces keeping evil ideologies of atheist materialism at bay…
The nature of corruption within the Roman Catholic Church began to change significantly sometime around Pope Leo XIII’s terrifying Oct. 13, 1884 vision, during which the Pope heard God grant Satan’s request for more latitude with which to tempt and corrupt humans. The experience prompted Pope Leo XIII to write the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.
Since then, the corruption of the Catholic Church has followed a pattern of intentional, infiltrative, incremental, inversion-of-truth processes, in parallel with and mirrored by the corruption mechanisms inflicted on civil authorities (governments of nation-states) and civil law.
Geopolitical events experienced by humanity in the decades since 1884 — including two world wars and many State-sponsored mass killing campaigns — reinforce this conclusion.
The spiritual-geopolitical worldview outlined here currently has three parts:
Corruption of the Catholic Church, to remove it as an obstacle to corruption of civil society and individual human souls.
Corruption of civil society at the nation-state [State] level, and substitution of global anti-human government: one-world, atheist, materialist programs operated by and for owners and administrators working within Bank for International Settlements, United Nations Security Council, World Health Organization, US Department of Defense and other supranational institutions.
Corruption of human national and international law, to strip it of functions that uphold Christian teachings about God-given human dignity, and transform it to render Luciferian, God-hating, anti-human, body-, mind- and soul-destroying acts and omissions immune from civil and criminal prosecution…
Sept. 5, 2023 Notes
A few months ago, I did a keyword search on “subsidiarity” in my document collection, and got several hits in European Union governing documents produced in recent decades.
In preparation for an October panel discussion, I did a little more subsidiarity research yesterday. Some of the relevant EU documents are linked below for readers who want to study, think about and work on these issues.
The European documents provide a window into how Satanic globalists manipulate the EU power centralization process to suppress Catholic subsidiarity principles that were included in original treaties, and how the Satanic globalists thereby reduce the range of motion and political confidence of nation-states, their elected and hereditary government leaders, and their citizens.
In the United States — as a Constitutional, federal republic — principles related to subsidiarity are enshrined in the Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
In compliance with the Satanic globalist blueprints, this is why SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts moved so rapidly to emasculate US courts at the start of the fake pandemic-predicated push for more comprehensive, more centralized world control.
Roberts unilaterally stripped US courts of their formerly co-equal power during the early fog of the psycho-biochemical war, through his May 2020 stand-down order in South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom, directing judges to not even attempt to review or “second-guess” emergency actions taken by executive and legislative branches.
“The precise question of when restrictions on particular social activities should be lifted during the pandemic is a dynamic and fact-intensive matter subject to reasonable disagreement.
Our Constitution principally entrusts “[t]he safety and the health of the people” to the politically accountable officials of the States “to guard and protect.” Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U. S. 11, 38 (1905). When those officials “undertake[ ] to act in areas fraught with medical and scientific uncertainties,” their latitude “must be especially broad.” Marshall v. United States, 414 U. S. 417, 427 (1974).
Where those broad limits are not exceeded, they should not be subject to second-guessing by an “unelected federal judiciary,” which lacks the background, competence, and expertise to assess public health and is not accountable to the people. See Garcia v. San Antonio Metropolitan Transit Authority, 469 U. S. 528, 545 (1985).”
Chief Justice Roberts’ May 2020 order suppressing the Constitutional review function of US courts remains in effect today (Sept. 5, 2023).
To my knowledge, no Constitutional claims have made it past the motion to dismiss stage1, and statutory or administrative law claims (under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and Administrative Procedures Act, for example) have — at best — resulted in temporary and revocable injunctions to temporarily restrain executive and legislative abuses of power. Those injunctions will hold only until the next “emergency” power grab, or until prosecutors, judges and lawmakers fight back and successfully throw out the technocratic imposters, usurpers and occupiers.
Subsidiarity strikes morally-sound balance between individual and society.
My view is that a legitimate government in each nation-state of the world currently exists, and that they are each being temporarily eclipsed and suppressed by illegitimate, unlawful administrative state overlays.
In most cases, the legitimate nation-state governments — whether elected representatives or hereditary monarchies — have been placed under duress, manipulated, deceived, bribed, tempted, frightened and coerced into adopting laws that purport to transfer ruling power from elected or hereditary governments, into the unelected and non-hereditary hands of technocratic administrators.
The laws purport to carry out these power transfers; the technocrats act every day as if they have power; and they get away with it to the extent that others fall for their deceptions.
But under the terms of natural and divine law, the power transfers and all acts derived from them are illegitimate, because an unjust law is no law at all.
“…For laws only bind when they are in accordance with right reason, and, hence, with the eternal law of God,” citing St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, I-II, Q. 93, Art. 3, ad. 2, “Human law is law only in virtue of its accordance with right reason: and thus it is manifest that it flows from the eternal law. And in so far as it deviates from right reason, it is called an unjust law; in such case it is not law at all, but rather a species of violence.”
Satan works through lies, temptation and fear.
God works by sending His creatures grace and strength to resist temptation, to see through lies, and to trust in His providence, mercy, love and justice.
The eclipsed, coerced, hostage governments sitting in chambers all over the world derive the authority — which they still hold but are not wielding effectively at the moment — from Almighty God, not directly from the people, even if (in some countries) the indirect mechanism by which specific rulers come to power includes popular (albeit more or less corrupt) elections.
It is to Almighty God that today’s government leaders will be required to render an account of how they have conducted themselves and used or misused the power He has placed into their hands: whether they’ve used it to help save souls for eternity, or to damn them.
For these and many other reasons, I do not support, endorse, or recommend participation in the sovereign citizens, state nationals and related movements in which many Bailiwick readers are deeply invested and about which they regularly comment. I don’t think individual human beings can (morally) or should (practically) try to walk away from the human societies into which God has placed us, using the linguistic and paperwork tools advocated by TASA and other organizations.
I share the conviction held by these readers, that the American government and American society are in a deep crisis, as are human governments and societies worldwide.
But I diagnose the crisis differently.
I therefore devote my time to researching, offering and supporting a different set of remedies, urging people to work at the personal, family, parish, county, state and federal levels to refuse compliance with unjust laws, and to identify, educate and support lawmakers, prosecutors, executives and judges who will block, nullify, reverse, and repeal the illegitimate laws that created the unlawful, Satanic, administrative technocrat overlay, which is actively suppressing the functioning of existing lawful legislatures, courts, executives and prosecutors.
The unlawful administrative overlay was added to human society by identifiable acts.
The unlawful administrative overlay is therefore removable.
The Catholic subsidiarity framework provides support and guidance.

WeThePeople50 - WeThePeople50 leadership characterizes intentionally toxic biochemical weapons as ‘experimental vaccines,’ which is an error I hope they will correct soon, but they are methodically putting important information into the public debate and into hands of the Attorneys General of the 50 states, which is good.
European Union documents addressing subsidiarity
The Official Journal of the European Communities (OJEC) and Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) are analogous to the US Federal Register.
They are document publishing platforms through which outlaw/extralegal technocrats pretend to make, execute, interpret and enforce law for nation-states and peoples, usurping the God-given ruling authority of elected or hereditary legislators, judges, executives and prosecutors.
…Article 5 (1). The limits of Union competences are governed by the principle of conferral. The use of Union competences is governed by the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality.

Article 5 (3). Under the principle of subsidiarity, in areas which do not fall within its exclusive competence, the Union shall act only if and in so far as the objectives of the proposed action cannot be sufficiently achieved by the Member States, either at central level or at regional and local level, but can rather, by reason of the scale or effects of the proposed action, be better achieved at Union level.

Update/clarification posted 10 p.m. EST, Sept. 5, 2023:
I’m not aware of any federal or state Constitutional cases challenging government Covid-19 policies (State-sponsored mass murder on public health emergency pretexts, using biochemical weapons camouflaged as ‘vaccines,’) as violations of Constitutional rights to life, property, and due process, (mostly Fourth, Fifth, Fourteenth Amendment cases and 18 USC 242 “color of law” deprivation of rights cases) that have survived government motions to dismiss to enter the discovery phase.
Missouri v. Biden is a federal Constitutional First Amendment case challenging government censorship of information, including information about Covid-19, through social media and other media platforms. That case did obtain some discovery (including November 2022 deposition of Anthony Fauci), and a temporary injunction, followed by a Fifth Circuit stay of the injunction. Missouri v. Biden only challenges the US government’s claim to have authority to censor speech about State-sponsored mass murder on public health emergency pretexts, using biochemical weapons camouflaged as ‘vaccines.’
