Communism is based upon what we all do that is "common,"
i.e., "build community" or "relationship" based upon "compromise."
Communism is based upon what we all do (or have) that is "common," that is indicative of our "human nature." 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 commands, rules, facts, or truth which would 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 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 the preaching of commands and rules and the teaching of facts and truth to be obeyed and learned as given, i.e., to be accepted by faith in the classroom (in the home), with the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, the bases of the "group grade," i.e., the soviet system 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," i.e., liberté, égalité, fraternité can do unconscionable things, such as kill the unborn, the elderly, the helpless, and the innocent 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" upon "self interest."
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] in theory and in practice." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis # 4)
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." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization)
George Hegel: "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." (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
