Traddy Catholics on the ropes?

RE: Traddy Catholics on the ropes?
The history of the rcc’s campaign to consolidate local and regional spiritual leaders and centers through history would suggest as much - I think.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Then again, that's the main RCC acting on its desire for hegemony. Even if they thought any of these sedevacantist sects could have some real influence, does this mean they're right to think so?

I guess that’s where it gets into the weeds. Even if they weren’t right to think so, their efforts appear to have created the effect.

Historically, it was mixed, and we can add in a third general theme of missing movements that certainly mattered.

Whatever the distribution may be in the specifics, that history has, I think, left the institution with absolutely no patience for any repeat performances.

-all of this is explicitly from the administrative viewpoint. There’s the religion- the people, the culture, and then there’s the business of the religious state, as it were.

At best, I think the surviving sedevacantist movements tend to be more hanging on than catching on. They still exist, but they're not growing more popular. The numbers of groups will likely grow, but the number of adherents isn't likely to get bigger after their initial formation (except maybe from the members having kids and raising them into the horseshit). At least, that's what I see in sedevacantist groups today.

That's my impression, also, which is why, if they are going to survive in the religious marketplace, they need to consolidate. Besides, I think it would be cool if the RCC had some competition!
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

They do have competition. They’re called ‘protestants’.

I've heard that, in parts of France, the movement is fairly consolidated, but, of course, in America, there's a shitton of people vying for the title of antipope, and, of course, this makes the possibility of consolidation even more remote.
