What's wrong with aggiornamento?

Almost the whole world is aware of the reason why John XXIII announced the Second Vatican Council: aggiornamento -  updating. Updating to the world which had changed a lot in the first part of the twentieth century. The idea seemed to be flawless, but from the point of view of the Catholic Church it is absolutely unacceptable. Our Saviour Jesus Christ has said clearly: Now is the judgment of the world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. (John 12,31) and: I will not now speak many things with you. For the prince of this world: cometh: and in me he hath not any thing. But that the world may know that I love the Father: and as the Father hath given me commandments, so do I. Arise, let us go hence. (John 14, 30-31) Saint James adds: Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world becometh an enemy of God. (James 4,4)
And what has John XXIII done? He summoned a council to strike up a friendship with the world.

Sapienti sat.
