Facebook Mentality

Dean Gotcher

The "new" world order is 'driven' by the child's' carnal nature, i.e., by the affective domain, i.e., by the child's "feelings" of the 'moment, i.e., by "human nature" (which is stimulated by the world, including the approval of other children, i.e., affirmation) and is 'purposed' in augmenting pleasure, i.e., the child's carnal nature (that which is of the world only) over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority (along with his/His commands, rules, facts, and truth), 'justifying' the negation of the "old" world order, i.e., the father's/Father's authority and anybody who, and anything which honors and perpetuates it, fulfilling Immanuel Kant's dictums of "lawfulness without law," i.e., the law of the flesh without the law of God, and "purposiveness without purpose," i.e., "enjoying" the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates without having to do what the father/Father says, thereby no longer having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment) Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud all had the negation of the father's/Father's authority in mind, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process, so they could do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., be "human" with impunity, demanding that all people be like them, i.e., "of [and for] the world" only as well.

By 'changing' communication (in the home, in the classroom, in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the government, in the "church") from the language of the parent's, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the preaching of commands and rules to be obeyed as given, the teaching of facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and discussion (at the discretion of the one in authority—you discuss facts, which are used to persuade, you dialogue opinions, i.e., "feelings" which are subject to manipulation, with authority using discussion to clear up any misunderstanding or for clarification without loosing their position of authority with the emphasis being "doing or being right and not wrong") to the language of the children, dialoguing their opinions to a consensus (Facebook mentality), where, with the "help" of a facilitator of change,'' i.e., the "psychotherapist," their "feelings" of the 'moment' (in the 'light' of the given situation) guide them in determining right from wrong, i.e., the right way to think and act in the situation (known as "situation ethics," "values clarification"), the "new" world order is able to usurp, i.e., negate the "old" world order, making all children the same, i.e., of and for their carnal nature, i.e., "of [and for] the world" only, "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, including affirmation, and resenting or hating restraint, including the restrainer.

Children are in fact being seduced, deceived, and manipulated in the consensus, i.e., "building relationship upon self interest" environment, created by facilitators of 'change,' since children do not come to consensus naturally, i.e., tending to divide from one another based upon their "self"-ish interests of the 'moment' or their parent's commands, rules, facts, and truth, insisting upon doing things their way, initiating and sustaining the traditional way of thinking and acting, i.e., a "top-down," "Mine. Not yours," "right-wrong" way of thinking and acting. In other words, according to those intoxicated, addicted, and possessed with the "new" world order, i.e., the consensus process, i.e., affirmation when children yield to their parent's authority (or any authority) against their carnal desires of the 'moment' they "create" the father's/Father's authority, a "top-down," patriarchal way of thinking and acting. Karl Marx wrote: "The life [authority] which he [the child] has given to the object [to the parent, to the teacher, to the boss, to the ruler, or to God—when the child humbles, denies, dies to, disciplines, controls his "self" in order to do their will, thus "empowering" them] sets itself against him as an alien and hostile force." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) While the father rewards or chastens each child individually, according to their behavior, creating individuality, with each child focusing upon doing right and not wrong according to commands, rules, facts, and truth they have learned from authority, the social media environment leads children to believe their identity, i.e., the purpose of life is based upon what they have in common with other children, i.e., the love of pleasure and the hate of restraint, making social relationship, i.e., social-ism, i.e., affirmation the bases of life. Karl Marx would agree: "It is not individualism [under the father's/Father's authority] that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society ["human relationship based upon self interest"] is the necessary framework through which freedom [from the father's/Father's authority] and individuality [being "of and for self"] are made realities." (Karl Marx, in John Lewis, The Life and Teachings of Karl Marx) The problem with self interest is that while you and a "friend" might have the same interest in discovering gold, once you find it you had better watch your back, your "friend's" self interest could cost you your life.

"Authoritarian submission [nationalism, tantamount to Fascism in the mind of 'liberal's'] was conceived of as a very general attitude that would be evoked in relation to a variety of authority figures—parents, older people, leaders, supernatural power, and so forth." "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) By removing discussion, Hitler negated the father's/Father's authority, using the office for his own carnal desires instead, thus 'justifying' to the socialist-commonist-globalists their use of dialogue, i.e., the language of the children of disobedience in order to initiate and sustain 'change,' taking control over and keeping themselves in power over "the people," ruling the world for the own pleasure and gain, in the name of "the people." "Submission to authority, desire for a strong leader, subservience of the individual to the state [parental authority, local control, Nationalism], and so forth, have so frequently and, as it seems to us, correctly, been set forth as important aspects of the Nazi creed that a search for correlates of prejudice had naturally to take these attitudes into account." "The power-relationship between the parents, the domination of the subject's family by the father or by the mother, and their relative dominance in specific areas of life also seemed of importance for our problem [how to take control over "the people"]." ibid.

The paranoia of the liberal mind is that the next generation might restore the father's/Father's authority, engendering a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, turning to government to save it from globalism, becoming Fascist in the process. By the next generation moving away from discussing facts and truth to dialoging "feelings" or opinions, as is done on Facebook, they are being 'liberated' from parental authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, finding common ground instead with those who, like them, "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates (including affirmation) and resent (or hate) restraint and the restrainer, which is the basis of globalism.

The "spirit" of the Facebook generation is: "You had better 'like,' 'friend,' be 'positive' toward me, i.e., make me 'feel good' or I will unlike, unfriend, negate you, i.e., make you "feel bad." Just take the iPhone away from the child and experience for yourself the "spirit" of the new world order, i.e., it's hatred toward parental restraint, i.e., its contempt for the father's/Father's authority, its inability to do without the pleasures of the 'moment,' i.e., its intoxication, addiction, possession by the drug of affirmation. Interestingly if the pleasure of affirmation is the basis of your friendship with others, you have no friends, i.e., you are a lonely person, since a true friend will warn you of the dangers of being intoxicated, addicted, possessed. "Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Proverbs 27:6
