Really though we should be thankful for what we have, especially if we are blessed with the opportunities to worship and live in the traditional manner. Christ is King of everything but in the end His Kingdom is "not of this world" and so while it's good and noble to try to make Him the King and center of all hearts here on earth politically we should never lose sight of the otherworldly savor of Christianity. We have all the tools both natural and supernatural at our disposal to become holy and to have a place in that otherworldly kingdom...what else are we waiting for?

Barring supernatural intervention, traditional Catholicism definitely won't be anything but a minority, fringe element -- one that will most likely die all the way off as soon as the kids of the Toxic Trads turn 18 and are able to get out of the house and their Toxic Trad parents die.  I think that'd be the case even if we had a liturgically trad Pope, unless he were to ban the Novus Ordo outright.
