By returning to a transcendental and supernatural vision of society, we touch on issues that go to the very core of our modern afflictions. We address those desires for spiritual things long suppressed by the acedia of our materialistic culture. We engage in a search for meaning beyond the frustrations of self-interest and the great unhappiness that now mock us amid our prosperity.

Above all, this vision of society sets in motion a natural and dynamic driving force inside the human soul that captures the imagination and moves us to act.
