"Once the earthly family [with the children having to submit to their father's authority, i.e., having to humble and deny their "self" in order to do their father's will] is discovered to be the secret of the holy family [with the Son, and all following Him having to submit to His Heavenly Father's authority, i.e., having to humble and deny their "self" in order to do His will], the former [the earthly father's authority system, with children having to trust in and obey the father] must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice [in the children's personal thoughts and social actions—no longer having fellowship with others based upon the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth (customs, traditions, doctrine) but, through dialogue, "building relationship" with them upon common "'self interests'" (their carnal desires, i.e., lusts of the 'moment' that the current situtation and/or people or person is stimulating) instead]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)

Of the some five or six negative words Karl Marx could have used to describe his "feelings" and intent toward the father's/Father's authority he chose "Vernichtet," the most caustic (hateful) of all the words, meaning "to destroy; to ruin; to wreck." ( In doing so he established the child's carnal nature, i.e., the child's love of pleasure, which is "positive" as the 'drive' of life, making the 'purpose' of life the augmentation of pleasure, establishing pleasure over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, which is "negative," in order (as in "new" world order) to negate it (called "the negation of negation," where the father's/Father's authority, which is negative to the child's carnal nature is negated).

"The child, contrary to appearance, is the absolute, the rationality of the relationship; he is what is enduring and everlasting, the totality which produces itself once again as such [once he is 'liberated' from the father'/Father's authority to become as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life (separating him from his "self" and the world), of (and now for) "self" and the world only]." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life)

The dialectic process, i.e., 'reasoning' through dialogue, i.e., through "feelings" negates the father's/Father's authority because there is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue. Whenever you are asked (told) not to be "negative," but to be "positive" instead, you are being asked to put aside, suspend, as upon a cross the father's/Father's authority, placing the child's "feelings," i.e., the child's desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' which are stimulated by the world, in its place instead.

"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')

"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to "self" in order to do God the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating God the Father and His authority which "gets in the way," i.e. which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9

Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' as a child of disobedience ('justifying' their "self") can not see their hatred toward God the Father as being evil because their love of "self," i.e., their love of pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," 'justifying' their hate, blinding them to the truth, the deceitfulness and wickedness of their heart.

When in the 50's and 60's, through the introduction of "Bloom's Taxonomies," the affective domain was added to the education curriculum, Marxism entered the American classroom, negating the father's/Father's authority in the students thoughts and actions. Since the introduction of the "group grade," "group psychotherapy," facilitated,' Transformational Marxist, soviet, brainwashing, "safe zone/space/place," "positive," i.e., dialoguing opinions to a consensus classroom it has been nothing but down hill for the father and his authority in the family.

"There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain)

You do not have to tell the students to question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack their parents when they get home. they will do that automatically after participating in the dialogue of opinions to a consensus, i.e., "Make me 'feel' good and I will listen to you," i.e., Marxist, i.e., "negation of negation" classroom. It is just the nature of the heart being 'liberated' from the father's/Father's restraints.
