Included in most people’s baskets was bread. Most Europeans have a healthy respect for the bread-making process, and how bread needs a certain amount of cooking time to achieve the best results. Instant bread is not an option. But when it comes to changing governments, some people (even Catholics) think that it can be done immediately on a whim, in violation of truth and nature.

So-called Western values are moving away from Christian values (nature and truth), and are undermining the possibility for real progress and development.
