Before you read, I know that the current state of the SSPX has changed and some of their positions are going to be more nuanced. The book being referenced has dated information. To summarize.

Why reject the Second Vatican Council if it has the most obvious indicators of being an Ecumenical Council out of all councils? It has 2.500+ Bishops, East and West, in attendance before the Bishop of Rome and was ratified by him and then received by the great majority of the Church. And separating this from the intent of the authors or the chaotic aftermath.

Why did Lefebvre claim that the New Rites were bastard rites and say that their validity could be questioned. This implies that the Church can push defective rites on her children, and thereby lead them to spiritual death.

What is this claim about Eternal Rome? This sounds like a made up claim. Where has allegiance to "Eternal Rome" ever occurred in the history of the Church

What is the idea behind claiming the Latin Mass is the "Mass of the Ages" or "Mass of All Time." This claim is not true. The TLM is one of a plurality of liturgical uses in the west, like the Sarum, Ambrosian and Dominican, and this Mass of Ages language seems exclusive to the equally old and equally venerable Eastern Rites, like that of St. John Chrysostom or St. Basil.
"Especially will I do this if the Lord make known to me that you come together man by man in common through grace, individually, in one faith, and in Jesus Christ... so that you obey the bishop and the presbytery with an undivided mind, breaking one and the same bread, which is the medicine of immortality, and the antidote to prevent us from dying, but which causes that we should live for ever in Jesus Christ." St. Ignatius of Antioch

"But Polycarp... waving his hand towards them, while with groans he look up to heaven, said, 'Away with the Atheists.'" Martyrdom of Polycarp
