Book Summary:
... "Because the democratic process operates apart from the Church, it possesses no corrective against corrupted human nature beyond its own equally corrupt judiciary, which ends by judging not only points of law but morality itself."

"There is no mention of the family in the U.S. Constitution, nor in any others patterned on its principles, and that in itself is ominous. With the onset of democracy, the family's juridical standing disappeared, along with that of God and His Church. Nor is there any mention of marriage, upon which the family rests as a social institution above all others. From the moment all men were declared equal, the family was legally replaced by the individual as basic cell and archetype of society. In other words, family rights simply disappeared into "the Rights of Man."

In a radio broadcast in 1949 Pius XII said, "Counterfeiting God's designs in social matters has taken place at the very root, by deforming the divine image in man. For his true figure as a creature with an origin and destiny in God, has been substituted the false portrait of a man autonomous in conscience, uncontrolled master of himself, irresponsible towards his neighbor and the social group, with no destiny beyond the earth, with no purpose beyond enjoying finite goods, with no law beyond the 'fait accompli' and the undisciplined satisfaction of his desires."

In addition to the previously mentioned topics, Hertz also addresses the clashes between science and faith, the Secret of La Salette, papal politics, and the apocalyptic "abomination of desolation." Whether you agree with her or not, Solange Hertz causes us to reconsider basic assumptions of the Brave New World that we live in; assumptions we might otherwise have never questioned in our lives. Because of its thought-provoking nature, Beyond Politics is a must-read for all Catholics who are seeking to preserve their Faith.

About the Author:

An established writer before the Second Vatican Council, Solange Hertz wrote for most Catholic periodicals and had five books to her credit, one a selection of the Catholic Literary Foundation. When she refused to adjust her theology to the new "Spirit of Vatican II," her manuscripts almost overnight became unacceptable to her former editors. After a series of articles on feminine spiritual for the old Triumph magazine, she continued speaking for tradition by successfully producing on her own, The Thought of His Heart, and Sin Revisited. In 1973 she began writing the Big Rock Papers, published privately throughout the next decade and the source of the highly acclaimed Star Spangled Heresy: Americanism, published in 1992. Currently her articles can be found in The Remnant, and abroad in Apropos, Christian Order and Action Familiale et Scolaire. Mrs. Hertz is universally regarded as one of traditional Catholicism's foremost contemporary writers and lecturers.

Solange Hertz Does It Again
James Capaldi on May 8, 2002
Beyond Politics is another masterpiece from Solange Hertz. Her thinking is exactly in line with the authentic teaching of the Roman Catholic Church before the catastrophic event of the Second Vatican Council. Read this book to learn what the Church really teaches,and to learn more about the cosmic struggle going on now between Satan and the Church. It gives the real causes of the current crisis in the Church, and a simple solution - restore Jesus Christ as King of heaven AND earth. Unless He reigns, all is in vain. Thanks to Solange Hertz, who one day, when all this madness is over, may be declared a Doctor of the Church.

A very nice summary of the traditional Catholic supernatural view of history. Highly recommended as a counterweight to modern materialistic atheistic historical accounts.
