I have always had sympathy for the old Roman liturgy, and, truth be told, whatever intellectual criticisms I may have, my natural inclination was to lean in its direction. Furthermore, I think it a matter of pure honesty to candidly admit the marginalization of Traditionalists in the Roman Church was, plainly, unjust and has only contributed toward cultivating a widespread reactionary impulse among such circles.
Plainly, the situation was handled poorly and pushed a certain segment to the extreme. The aftermath has helped few. The SSPX who, despite protestations to the contrary, are gradually transforming into an institutional alternative to Rome. Even among those in communion with Rome, one sees the aftermath of an ecclesiastical battering, Traditionalist circles becoming a gathering of the maladjusted minority in the Roman Church.
All of the above being noted, Traditionalists do themselves no favors when galvanizing their ranks with whispers of conspiracy and vituperation of the mainline ecclesiastical body.
Intemperance will destroy the Traditionalist option in the end...which is a damned shame - they will have gone on to finish the job they would like to claim the Post-Vatican II Catholic Church started.
