Communism is based upon what we all have that is "common:"
"the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life."
Communism is "building community" or "relationship" based upon your carnal (sinful) nature, 'justifying' your "self," i.e., 'justifying' your "lust" for pleasure, which the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating and your hate of restraint, i.e., hate of the father's/Father's authority before one another. Communists have only one 'drive,' "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" and only one 'purpose,' that of negating the father's/Father's authority in the home/in your soul so they can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience (which the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating), 'justifying' their negating anyone who gets in their way, including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous, with "the peoples" affirmation. Communism is engendered through the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process where the father's/Father's authority is negated. There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, in an opinion, or in the consensus process. There is only the carnal nature of the child, i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" being 'justified.'
"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16
"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory)
"And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15
Communism is based upon what we all do (or have) that is "common," that is indicative of our "human nature," i.e., "all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life ... [which] is of the world." (1 John 2:16), i.e., our "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates, including the affirmation of men, and our dissatisfaction with, resentment toward, hatred of restraint and the restrainer who/which gets in the way. Desiring pleasure, including the pleasure which comes with the "approval" (or "affirmation") from others, we build community or relationship with them based upon compromise., i.e., setting aside or not bringing up, i.e., suspending, as on a cross, commands, rules, facts, or truth which get in the way of our carnal desires of the 'moment' and which cause division. Communism is based upon the praxis (social action) of not telling others that they are wrong, wicked, or evil, because we fear "offending" them, i.e., we fear hurting their "feelings"(thus inhibiting or blocking our ability to initiate and/or sustain relationship with them), basing relationship with them upon "feelings"—upon our "self interests" (our desire for pleasure) and their "affirmation," instead of upon facts and truth—upon the father's/Father's authority system of doing right and not wrong, i.e., obeying and not disobeying his commands and rules. While the "earthly father" might give (preach and teach) commands, rules, facts and truth to his children, holding them accountable to them, He, in order to initiate or sustain relationship with (have approval from) others, i.e., with his relatives, neighbors, boss, etc., 'compromises' ("sets aside") his commands, rules, facts, and truth for the 'moment,' i.e., he does not bring them up when he is around them, being silent or dialoguing his opinion, i.e., how he "feels" and what he "thinks" with them instead. This is what separates the "earthly father," who, not being righteous in and of himself, desiring the pleasures of this life, including the pleasure which comes from the approval of others, from the "Heavenly Father," who, being righteous in and of himself, needs no approval from man. Yet the "earthly father's" system (though he is not righteous in and of himself) is like the Heavenly Father's system, i.e., demanding faith and obedience from his children, i.e., doing right and not wrong. To be silent in the midst of unrighteousness, i.e., wrong, i.e., evil—not to reprove, correct, rebuke unrighteousness, i.e., those doing wrong or doing evil, in order to initiate and/or sustain relationship with them—is to 'justify' unrighteousness, i.e., wrong, i.e., evil in their thoughts and actions, making unrighteousness and socialism, i.e., 'compromise,' i.e., doing wrong, i.e., evil the "norm," turning good, i.e., the father's/Father's authority system into evil, and evil, i.e., the child's nature ("lusting" after the things of the world) and his pride of life (seeking the approval of men) good.
While the "earthly father" might compromise in order to initiate and/or sustain relationship with others he does not instruct (preach to and teach) his children to do right and not wrong and then tell them to 'compromise' his commands, rules, facts, and truth if (and when) they get in the way of "building relationship" or "community" with others. It is why he responds with "Because I said so" to his children's "Why?" (their response to his command or rule—in an effort to draw the father into dialogue, thus getting him to abdicate his office of authority since there is no father's authority in the dialoguing of opinions). He instead requires that his children deny, humble, discipline, and control their "self" in order to do right and not wrong, not "esteeming" their "self" (which comes from the approval of others), i.e., letting their "self interest," i.e., their desire for pleasure, including the pleasure which comes with the approval of others, control their lives. It is after all the child's (our) carnal nature to desire (to "lust" after) pleasure, i.e., the "lusts of the flesh and eyes," i.e., "sensuous needs" and "sense perception" (including the pleasure which comes from the approval of others, i.e., the "pride of life") and resent or hate restraint. Socialism (society), i.e., communism (community), i.e., "building relationship" is based upon the child's natural (carnal) desire for the pleasures of the 'moment,' including (especially) the pleasure which comes with "group" or "community approval," and his natural resentment toward or hate of the father's authority (system) which prevents, i.e., which blocks or inhibits him from apprehending what he desires in the 'moment,' including "group," i.e., "community" approval, i.e., Hegel's "peace and affirmation."
According to communism (socialism-globalism) it is our desire for approval from the father which causes us to "repress" our "self" in order to do the father's will (the "old" world order), and it is our insistence upon holding to, i.e., having faith in the father and his facts and truth, obeying his commands and rules as given, that gets in the way of "building relationship" or "community" with others, i.e., which "alienates" us from them and them from us, since the father's commands, rules, facts, and truth condemns them, producing a "guilty conscience" in them for doing wrong. Tell someone that they are wrong (concerning something they are doing or desiring to do) and see where the relationship goes from there. None of us, as children, got up in the morning thinking about (looking forward to) doing the father's will when it prevented, i.e., blocked or inhibited us from enjoying the pleasures of the 'moment,' i.e., his commands, rules, facts, and truth preventing us from "enjoying" the pleasures of our heart's desire of the 'moment,' including experiencing the pleasure which comes from those who approve of (who are doing or desiring to do and want us to join them in doing) what we desire, and therefore approve (affirm) us (doing wrong) over and therefore against the father's will. "Building relationship," i.e., society AKA socialism, i.e., community AKA communism can not be initiated and sustained while the father's authority system holds sway over the child's feelings, thoughts, and actions, i.e., affecting his relationship with others, with the "guilty conscience" for doing wrong, i.e., the voice of the father in him preventing him from building "common ground," i.e., "community" with others. It is why the father's authority is under such attack, with barely a soul recognizing. Bring the issue up and you will more than likely get that "deer in the headlight" look from others ("Your wasting your ... or rather ... my time"). Tell them that they are wrong in doing what they are doing (or thinking about doing) and need to do what is right, and you will more than likely get that glare, revealing the Karl Marx in them, i.e., the common-ism, i.e., the "community" or "society" of "urges and impulses" in them that demands 'compromise,' i.e., "tolerance of deviancy."
While traditional communist (Traditional Marxists) used the father's "top-down" authority system (forcing Marxism upon "the people") in order to initiate and sustain common-ism (killing the father's outright—there were millions of orphans after the revolution, who ended up working in the gulags, doing unconscionable things), transformational communist, i.e., Transformational Marxists, i.e., psychoanalysts and psychotherapists—who merge Karl Marx (socialism) and Sigmund Freud (psychology), i.e., the society and the individual (hiding Marxism in Psychology)—use "group psychotherapy" in the classroom in order (as in "new" world order) to 'liberate' children (the next generation of citizens) from the father's authority system, creating a "new" world order based upon the nature of the child, i.e., based upon the child's carnal desires (his impulses and urges—mimesis—of the 'moment,' including his desire for the approval of, i.e., affirmation from the other children, and his natural resentment toward or hatred of the father's authority system which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks him from apprehending them, i.e., the pleasures of the 'moment' and "group approval"). "Bloom's Taxonomies," based upon the works of transformational Marxists, such as Erick Fromm and Theodor Adorno, i.e., psychoanalysts and psychotherapists such as Kurt Lewin, J. L. Moreno, Carl Rogers, Abraham Maslow, Benjamin Bloom, etc., have been the curriculum used in our classrooms (since the 50's, with Marzano, Anderson, and Webb updating them). They are now being used in our "Christian" colleges and universities, even in writing homeschooling curriculum. It is, after all, all about "community," i.e., making you and your children "social capital."
It worked. Look at us today. Voting for Marxists, i.e., Communists. As I keep saying: the Berlin wall did not come down because communism was defeated. It came down because communism had succeeded, in the form of Transformational Marxism, i.e., "group psychotherapy," i.e., don't just kill the father's in society, kill the father's authority system in the feelings, thoughts, and actions of the children, including in their relationship with one another. Replace 1) the preaching of commands and rules to be obeyed as given, the teaching or facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, the discussing of any questions those under authority might have regarding any command, rule, fact, or truth being taught, at the one in authorities discretion, providing they deem it necessary, there is time, those under authority are able to understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority, 2) the rewarding of those who obey and do things right, 3) the chastening of those who do things wrong and/or disobey. and 4) the casting out of those who question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack authority, in the classroom (in the home) with the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process, the bases of the "group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "Don't be negative, be positive," brainwashing (washing the father's/Father's authority from the children's thoughts and actions), inductive 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings," i.e., their natural inclination to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'), "affective domain," i.e., soviet, "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité" style "education" and you 'change' the child, the home, the neighborhood, the state, the nation, and the world. In this way children, under the banner of "Making the world safe for Democracy" can do unconscionable things, such as kill the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, and the righteous without having a "guilty conscience" (which only comes from the father' authority), i.e., they can sin, doing unrighteous and abominable things with impunity, while "building relationships," i.e., "community" with one another upon their common "self interests," i.e., "lusts."
"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)
Start with the nature of the child and you start with that which we all have in common. But to do so, you must not only kill the father in society, you must also kill the father inside the child, thereby negating the "guilty conscience" for doing wrong, i.e., for sinning (restoring the father's authority in the child and in society). It is through the use of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., turning to our carnal nature ("self 'justification"), i.e., "leaning to our own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5), following after the pattern of Genesis 3:1-6, that the father's authority system, i.e., Hebrews 12:5-11 and the "guilty conscience" for doing wrong, i.e., Romans 7:14-2 (which requires us, born into the world with our deceitful and wicked heart and our body of death, to turn to the Father, and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ in order to be saved from damnation) is negated. "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" 2 Thessalonians 2:3 "And truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 3:1
"The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good. He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil." Psalms 36:1-4
Karl Marx: "Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly [Holy] family, the former must be destroyed [Vernunft, annihilated, negated] in theory and in practice." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis # 4) The father's/Father's authority system no longer resides in the children's thoughts or controls their actions, other than to attack it when it appears.
Sigmund Freud: "'It is not really a decisive matter whether one has killed one's father or abstained from the deed,' if the function of the conflict and its consequences are the same [the father no longer has authority in the home]." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization)
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2 Timothy 4:3, 4
Facilitators of 'change,' i.e., psychologists, i.e., behavioral "scientists," i.e., "group psychotherapists," i.e., Marxists (Transformational Marxists)—all being the same in method or formula—are using the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus (affirmation) process, i.e., dialectic 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings" of the 'moment,' i.e., from/through their "lust" for pleasure and their hate of restraint, in the "light" of their desire for group approval, i.e., affirmation and fear of group rejection) in the "group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "Don't be negative, be positive," soviet style, brainwashing (washing the father's/Father's authority from the children's thoughts and actions, i.e., "theory and practice," negating their having a guilty conscience, which the father's/father's authority engenders, for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process—called "the negation of negation" since the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience, being negative to the child's carnal nature, is negated in dialogue—in dialogue, opinion, and the consensus process there is no father's/Father's authority), inductive 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through the students "feelings," i.e., their natural inclination to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—dopamine emancipation—which the world stimulates, i.e., their "self interest," i.e., their "sense experience," selecting "appropriate information"—excluding, ignoring, or resisting, i.e., rejecting any "inappropriate" information, i.e., established command, rule, fact, or truth that gets in the way of their desired outcome, i.e., pleasure—in determining right from wrong behavior), "Bloom's Taxonomy," "affective domain," French Revolution (Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité) classroom "environment" in order (as in "new" world order) to 'liberate' children from parental authority, i.e., from the father's/Father's authority system (the Patriarchal Paradigm)—seducing, deceiving, and manipulating them as chickens, rats, and dogs, i.e., treating them as natural resource ("human resource") in order to convert them into 'liberals,' socialists, globalists, so they, 'justifying' their "self" before one another, can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., "lust" with impunity.
"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken." Jeremiah 6:16, 17
Home schooling material, co-ops, conferences, etc., are joining in the same praxis, fulfilling Immanuel Kant's as well as Georg Hegel's, Karl Marx's, and Sigmund Freud's agenda of using the pattern or method of Genesis 3:1-6, i.e., "self" 'justification,' i.e., dialectic (dialogue) 'reasoning," i.e., 'reasoning' from/through your "feelings," i.e., your carnal desires of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world (including your desire for approval from others, with them affirming your carnal nature) in order to negate Hebrews 12:5-11, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will, negating Romans 7:14-25, i.e., your having a guilty conscience when you do wrong, disobey, sin, thereby negating your having to repent before the father/Father for your doing wrong, disobedience, sins—which is the real agenda.
"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justify' their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
