History, like faith, comes from the "past," i.e., is not 'limited' to or is greater than the "sense experiences" of our own life—like our parents, when we were children, informing (teaching) us of things, i.e., facts and truth which our "sense experiences" had not provided (or could not provide) us—preparing us to deal with the things of the present and the future so that we could do what was right and not wrong, i.e., so that we did not have to repeat history, having learned the lessons of history, i.e., the lessons of the "past" instead. Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, i.e., facilitators of 'change,' making children subject to their own "sense experiences" only, instead (which is the "dialectician's" definition of history, limiting "history" to the child's own "sense experiences"—the child's own "sensuous needs" and "sense perception," i.e., from their past experiences to the present only, placing their hope in the carnal pleasures, enjoyments, "lusts" of this world only, rejecting that hope which is greater than this world, i.e., the hope of glory, i.e., "Christ in you" Colossians 1:27), turn children into animals, i.e., into Thorndike's chickens, Skinner's rats, and Pavlov's dog, making them subject to the stimulus-response of their own carnal nature and the world only, instead (thus making them subject to the seduction, deception, and manipulation of the facilitator of 'change,' for the facilitator's of 'change's' own gain), programing the child to jump through their hoops, at their command, for their entertainment, pleasures, "lusts." This is why, when those of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., facilitators of 'change' transform the child's feelings, thoughts, and actions, and their relationship with other children, "helping" them 'justify' their carnal thoughts and carnal actions, i.e., "encouraging" them to build bridges to the "future," bridges to the "past," to history, and to faith, i.e., respect for (hope in) authority is missing—having been removed (negated), i.e., destroyed in their praxis or social action of "creating" a "new" world order based upon the "building of relationship" with others of like "self interests," uniting themselves upon the "imagination of the thoughts of their hearts" only, 'liberating' themselves from parental authority and Godly restraint by negating parental authority and Godly restraint in their feelings, thoughts, and actions, and in their relationship with one another, feeling, thinking, and acting, and relating with one another according to their own carnal nature (pleasures, enjoyments, "lusts") only, instead. "And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." Genesis 6:5

"Social animals" are therefore children (programed children, i.e., socialist children, even in adult bodies) who are "positive," i.e., who openly question their parent's commands, rules, facts, and truth and openly challenge their authority, i.e., who have overcome, i.e.. negated "negativity" by "building relationship" with other children upon their common "self interests," feeling, thinking, and acting and relating with one another according to their common desires of the moment,' i.e., according to their common love of pleasure, i.e. according to their common "lusts" and their common resentment toward restraint, i.e., according to their common hatred of restrainers. Instead of feeling, thinking, and acting, and relating with (or not relating with) one another according to their parent's commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., having "fellowship" with one another according to their common faith, they establish unity (consensus) upon their own common carnal "feelings" instead. Under one condition children either relate or refuse to relate with one another based upon established standards (being in the world but not "of and for" it), maintaining their individuality (under their parent's or God's authority), having a guilty conscience for relating with those who they are not supposed to relate with, i.e., who think and act wrong, while with the other they must relate, i.e., sacrifice (negate) their individuality (under their parent's or God's authority) or face alienation, rejection, and possible negation from—death at the hands of—the rest of the "social animals," the laws of the land from then on being based upon "feelings," i.e., upon the child's social worth instead of upon facts and truth, i.e., upon their individuality, under their parent's or God's authority. "The relation between theory and practice [between the child's thoughts and his actions] becomes even closer the more the conception [the more his imagination] is vitally [is sensual, i.e. is worldly] and radically innovatory [and is put into action] and opposed to old ways of thinking." (Antonio Gramsci, The Prison Notebooks) "Unfreezing [brainwashing]. This term, also adopted from Lewinian change theory, refers to the process of disconfirming an individual's former belief system." (Irvin Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy) "In brief, unfreezing is the breaking down of the mores, customs and traditions of an individual – the old ways of doing things – so that he is ready to accept new alternatives." (Edger Schein and Warren Bennis, Personal and Organizational Change Through Group Methods: The Laboratory Approach)

History teaches (warns) us of the death and destruction that follows a people (children) who become "social animals." "Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts." James 4:2, 3 "And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable." "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:4-5, 12 ", and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death." Matthew 10:21 "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." Jeremiah 6:16
