I am not sure if most of the essays were previously published or not, but some of the titles look familiar. At least the title isn't Reclaiming Our Catholic Birthright.

Bishop Georg Bätzing of Limburg says he is “very much in favour of transporting to Rome, to the level of the whole Church, the insights and decisions that we garner from the Synodal Process – also with regard to [the role of] women and ecclesial ministry.”
Last year the German bishops announced plans for a two-year “Synodal Way,” bringing together lay people and bishops to discuss four major topics: the way power is exercised in the Church; sexual morality; the priesthood; and the role of women.
They said the process would end with a series of “binding” votes — raising concerns at the Vatican that the resolutions might challenge Church teaching and discipline.

Nevertheless, I cannot in good conscience, relate the triumphs of the past while neglecting a duty to urge my fellow Traditionalists to join together to raise up our moribund Mother in her present plight. I do so through this four-pronged Plea that is as simple to state as it will require the greatest self-effacement and willpower to act upon effectively.
It is now or never. This is the last act in the modern revolutionary drama and the enemy is determined.
- Let each segment of the Traditionalist Movement— each “clan”, to use The Remnant’s terminology — avoid the very understandable temptation to secure its own particular survival in this moment of worldwide pandaemonium, and work together as one unit;
- That a Central Committee of representatives of each Traditionalist “clan” be established — clerical and lay, or lay supporters alone if there be danger to the priestly fraternities and congregations concerned — to coordinate intellectual, spiritual, and practical advice and actions, whether formally or informally;
- That every opportunity be exploited immediately to restore public worship according to the Traditional Rite, whether they are permitted by unjust State or episcopal fiat or not;
- That as a symbol of our failure to accept the mass hysteria around us, we visibly wear a symbol of the Sacred Heart of Christ instead of the Mask of Oppression.
I'll just ad this: the EF Mass and Holy Communion are important, but they are ordered to living the life of Christ, and Latin Traditionalists, if they want to preserve their communities, need to do the heavy lifting that is required for that, rather than assuming having a common form of worship is enough.

It's an argument against a modern notion of sovereignty, but by itself it is not a sufficient check against tyranny.

But it doesn't mean that everything that is written at (R)CST in connection with it is well-reasoned.
