"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
History, like faith, comes from and makes us subject to the "past," preparing us to deal with the present and the future. History is not 'limited' to (bound by) the "sense experiences" of our own life. (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) History is in fact greater than the "sense experiences" of our own life. When we were children our parents (teacher's, minister, etc.,) informed (taught) us of things, i.e., of facts and truth that our "sense experiences" could not provide us. They prepared us to deal with the things of the present and the future so we could do what was right and not wrong—so we did not have to repeat history, doing things wrong again. Having learned the lessons of history, i.e., the lessons of the "past" we could then avoid the mistakes of the past. History is under attack. Through the use of dialogue (opinions) history is being turned into social (socialist) studies instead.
"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)
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')
"Once the earthly family [with 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 (have faith in) and obey the father] must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, negated] in theory and in practice [in the children's personal thoughts and social actions—no longer fellowshipping with others based upon the father's/Father's authority, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth (customs, traditions, doctrine) but, through dialogue, "building relationship" upon common "'self interests'" (our and their carnal desires of the 'moment') instead]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)
"Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, i.e., facilitators of 'change' (Transformational Marxists), who chance communication (in the classroom, in the workplace, in government, and even in the "church") from discussion, i.e., from doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth—making us subject to history which is beyond, i.e., not limited to our carnal nature, i.e., not bound by our carnal desires of the 'moment' (including our desire for the approval, i.e., affirmation of men)—to dialogue, i.e., to satisfying (actualizing) our carnal desires (opinions or "self interests") of the 'moment'—make us and therefore history subject to our carnal nature only (which is influenced by the current situation and anyone manipulating it), making history subject to our own "sense experiences" only, instead.
"We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." "If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." "We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled, though they are following a code much more scrupulously than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That's the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement [children affirming each others carnal desires and dissatisfactions over and therefore against their parent's, i.e., the father's/Father's authority]—there's no restraint and no revolt." "By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes [all made manifest in dialogue]. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
To the "dialectician" ("behavior scientist") history is limited to our "sense experiences," i.e., to our carnal nature only, limiting "history" to our "sensuous needs" and "sense perception" ("lust of the flesh" and "lust of the eyes")—limiting history to our past experiences up to the present ("pride of life") only, placing our hope in the carnal pleasures, enjoyments, "lusts" for the things of this world only, rejecting (negating) that hope which is greater than this world, i.e., the hope of glory, i.e., hope in "Christ," (Colossians 1:27) which comes from the Father. The 'changing' (negation) of history lies in our ability to dialogue, i.e., in our ability to 'justify' our "self," i.e., in our ability to 'justify' our love of pleasure (dopamine emancipation) over and therefore against anyone who "gets in our (pleasures) way."
"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
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing right and not wrong according the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, 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], 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 children of disobedience, 'justifying' their "self," can not see their hatred toward God the Father (or any authority that "gets in their way") as being evil because their love of "self," i.e., their love of pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," blinding them to the truth, i.e., blinding them to the deceitfulness and wickedness of their heart.
"The individual may have 'secret' thoughts which he will under no circumstances reveal to anyone else if he can help it. To gain access [through getting him or her to dialogue, i.e., to share his or her "feelings" of the 'moment' with others] is particularly important, for here may lie the individual's potential [for 'change,' i.e., to become of and for his or her "self" and the world only—'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority]." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality)
In doing so, i.e., drawing us into dialogue, socialist engineers turn us into animals, i.e., into Thorndike's chickens, Skinner's rats, and Pavlov's dog, making us subject to the stimulus-response of our own carnal nature and the world which stimulates it. This makes us subject to the seduction, deception, and manipulation of the facilitator of 'change,' whose goal is to gain access to our carnal desires, i.e., our "self interests," i.e., our "lusts," i.e., what we covet—'discovered' through dialogue—in order to turn us into "human resource," to be used for his or her own pleasure and gain.
"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:" 2 Peter 2:3
Through dialogue making history subject to our opinion, i.e., to our carnal desires of the 'moment' we are programed to jump through hoops, run down mazes, salivate on command for the facilitator of 'change's' entertainment, pleasures, "lusts." This is why, when those of dialectic (dialogue) 'reasoning,' i.e., facilitators of 'change' transform our "feelings," thoughts, and actions, and our relationship with others, i.e., "help" us 'justify' our carnal thoughts and carnal actions of the past and the present, i.e., "encourage" us to build bridges to the "future" based upon our carnal nature, burn bridges to the "past," i.e., negate history (the lessons and warning of the "past"). In the process of making history subject to our opinion ("lusts") faith in and respect for the father's/Father's authority is negated.
"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
In dialectic 'reasoning' true history is missing—having been removed (negated), i.e., destroyed in the praxis or the social action of dialogue—"creating" a "new" world order based upon our carnal nature only, with our natural desire to "build relationship" with others—who are in harmony with our carnal nature (desires) of the 'moment'—making our carnal nature and our "self interests" the 'drive' and 'purpose of life. In uniting everyone upon the "imagination of the thoughts of their hearts" only they 'liberate' themselves from parental authority and Godly restraint, negating their having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning (which is engendered by the father's/Father's authority) in the process—so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity. By negating parental authority and Godly restraint in our feelings, thoughts, and actions, and in our relationship with one another, our feelings, thoughts, and actions, and relationship with one another become our only basis for 'reality,' making history subject to our own carnal nature (pleasures, enjoyments, "lusts") only, instead. The "educator" does not have to tell the students to question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack their parents authority. By encouraging them to dialogue their opinions to a consensus in the classroom they will do that automatically when they get home—negating the history of the "past" that gets in the way of their present and future desires.
"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)
"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 one another 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 restraint (and the restrainer, i.e., authority). 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), i.e., relationship upon their own common carnal "feelings" instead. Under one condition children either relate or refuse to relate with one another based upon established commands, rules, facts, and truth (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 doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, and 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 "socialist animals." The laws of the land from then on must be 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. When 'justice' is based upon social worth, there is no justice.
"Jurisprudence of terror takes two forms; loosely defined rules which produces unpredictable law, and spontaneous changes in rules to best suit the state [those in power]." (R. W. Makepeace and Croom Helm, Marxist Ideology and Soviet Criminal Law)
"The relation between theory and practice [between the child's carnal thoughts and his carnal actions] becomes even closer the more the conception [the more his imagination] is vitally [is sensual, i.e. is worldly, i.e., is of his own nature] and radically innovatory [and is put into action] and opposed to old ways of thinking." (Antonio Gramsci, The Prison Notebooks)
"Unfreezing [using dialogue, i.e., dialectic 'reasoning' to 'discover' right and wrong, i.e., 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) "Disconfirming" is creating "cognitive dissonance" in order to affect 'change.'
"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)
"Preventing someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space." (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future)
Robert Owen's son, Robert Dale Owens, after observing his father's works (Robert Owens was the founder of socialism), defined it as having only produced and rewarded the "improvident, unskilled, and vicious."
History teaches (warns) us of the death and destruction that follows a people (children) who become "socialist animals," i.e., subject to their carnal nature ("lusts") only—"tyranny of the masses." By making history subject to our "sense experiences," i.e., to our "lust" for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates and our "lust" for the affirmation (the praises) of men (which we all have in common—making our carnal nature the basis of common-ism) we all become "socialist animals," subject to those who see us as "natural resource," turning us into "human resource" to be seduced, deceived, and manipulated and used for their own pleasure and gain—with our affirmation. The role of those who make history subject to our "sense experience" only is to negate any history which would teach us otherwise—which warns us of them.
"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
"How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?" "And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day." John 3:30
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:14-18
