Even as states and nations continue to open up while not seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases and deaths, lockdown measures are still in effect across the nation and world. How is it that COVID-19 justifies just about everything a socialist state would do to its people? Is it just a coincidence that this virus is allowing authorities to:

You would think the right to not wear a mask would be obvious, but in today's world, fundamental liberties are being trampled upon, so I need to explain why I will not wear a mask. 

  1. It spreads bad germs worse and good germs less. Masks cause me, and most other people to touch our faces more than we normally would because masks itch and need...

We are being told certain workers are "essential" and others are not. Therefore it is necessary to explain why, first of all, no authority has the right to deem who is essential and who is not; but furthermore that every job is essential whether granted that classification by the authorities or not. 

Any of these reasons alone would be enough to ill...

There is so much information regarding SARS-CoV-2, I think it's necessary to share the info that flies below the radar. Here are some widely-respected doctors who are saying the lockdown of our society is a bad idea, and providing the data to back up their position.

This article was updated on May 17 and May 21, as more data was discovered.

We now live in a world based on charts and studies that record the deadliness of COVID-19, so I will keep trying to point out how unreliable these charts and data are.

In the chart on this page, the number of deaths from all causes in April in the U.S. is approaching a concer...

Charts and articles throughout the internet are saying there have been about 47,000 deaths from COVID-19 in the U.S and 848,000 confirmed cases, as of April 23. Using these numbers, the death rate would be 5.5 percent. These raw numbers are supposedly what have justified the lockdown of our society. But as we learn more about how widespread the vir...

More research needs to be done regarding COVID-19 deaths. Questions I have are:

  • How many people tested positive for COVID-19 but then died of something else? In other words, was it death from COVID-19 or death with COVID-19.

  • How many people were tested for the virus, died before the results came back, but then had COVID-19 written on their...

The world was made to be lived in. It is not natural for people to be confined to their homes.

Many people may think we are taking action with COVID-19. We're told locking ourselves inside our doors is the best action we can take; but hiding inside is the very opposite of action. If this virus is as serious as we're being told, we should all be doin...

We read during Lent many stories and verses proclaiming how God manifests his glory through healing the sick. These passages are meant to symbolize the sickness of sin, and how Christ cures us from that as well. In John's Gospel we read, "And his disciples asked him: Rabbi, who hath sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind? Je...

Masses are canceled in dioceses across our land due to a pandemic that needs no introduction, but apparently the other causes of death in the U.S. need re-introduction: heart disease - about 655,000 deaths per year; abortion - about 638,000 per year; cancer - about 600,000; the common flu - about 59,000; pneumonia, which has a death rate of 10 perc...

Just as a refresher, I'd like to give a brief overlook of what Rambling Spirit magazine is about, and its unique role in young adult communities and the new evangelization.

Catholicism is not just about faith and morals -- it's not something that can be confined within our church walls on Sunday -- rather, our religion offers a full worldview tha...

One of the criticisms I've gotten about Rambling Spirit is that it will inevitably have a slant or spin to it, like so many publications do. But I say that doesn't have to be the case. Our foundation is Catholicism in its full form. If we sway from that foundation, it certainly is possible for us to become slanted and spun. To believe my words thou...

Catholic culture is an elusive term. It is -- by definition -- the most nuanced, most diverse, most complex culture on the planet. Catholics practice their faith freely in some areas and underground in others. They're among the poor and the rich. Indian Catholics are completely different from American Catholics. In fact, Filipino Catholics have dif...

A man walks down the main street of a traditional American town. He sees a pharmacy, a bank, a few restaurants, a police office and a church. Does it occur to him that a grand history of ideas has come together in the place that is right before his eyes? Or does he just see it all working together by chance? 

We could go into deeper detail abou...

Many of us millennials chose a profession at a young age, pursued the pertaining academic path, and then began a career in that profession that will consume the greater part of our life. We went to college to learn a trade, not to become educated. Our true education will come from life experience, because our academic education just gave we what we...
