If You Want To KNOW What Is Going On.
("The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity." "God is not in all his thoughts." "There is no fear of God before his eyes." "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind." "Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee." "It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." "In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths." Excerpts from Psalms 94:11 Psalms 10:3, 36:1; Romans 1:28, 32; Hosea 4:6; Jeremiah 10:23; Matthew 4:4; Proverbs 3:6 explaining man's carnal nature and carnal mind, i.e., human nature and his need for God's direction, i.e., for God's Word to KNOW right from wrong behavior. The objective of those "of and for the world," i.e., "of and for self" is to "prevent someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space [is to prevent the preaching, teaching, and discussing of God's Word (presenting it as is) in the public arena, i.e., in public meetings, i.e., in any environment where right and wrong behavior is being established or decided so they can sin, i.e., lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without God's Word judging them, i.e., condemning their carnal thoughts and their carnal actions—It is why you are being "asked," i.e., pressured (out of fear of "the group's" rejection of you) to be "positive" (tolerant of ambiguity, i.e., tolerant of the deceitfulness and wickedness of men's heart) and not "negative" (calling "human nature," i.e., lust what it is, sin) in meetings. God is patient, that we might repent. But He is not tolerant. He calls "human nature," i.e., lust what it is, sin. Your fear of "the group's" rejection of you for (with the Word of God) exposing and condemning its sins reveals your lust for pleasure, including your lust for its affirmation, approving your—and therefore its—lusts. The 'justification' and preservation of your (and "the group's") lust, i.e., your (and its) self interest, i.e., human nature resides in "the group" (and in you). Not in God, i.e., not in God's Word, who, i.e., which condemns lust. Now you KNOW what is going on. Apart from God, i.e., God's Word all you have is your self, i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interests and the world that stimulates them (that which those "of and for the world," i.e., "of and for self" want you to only know so they can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without, in their mind/in their thoughts being held accountable by God for their sins)]." Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future)
(The following is difficult reading as, amongst the many verses and quotations I give very few examples or illustrations, leaving that up to you to provide.)
"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
"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, i.e., lust is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating anyone preventing, i.e., inhibiting or blocking it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' it lusts after]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 Your heart can not see its hatred toward the father's/Father's authority as being evil, i.e., "wicked," i.e., "desperately wicked" because it's lust for pleasure is standing in the way, 'justifying' the hate. (Mark 7:21-23)
"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man." Matthew 7:21-23 Karl Marx is in the heart of the child, in praxis 'liberating' his self from the father's/Father's authority.
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') Self, according to Karl Marx, et al is actualized in lust, i.e., in self interest making man subject only to the world, i.e., to the current situation that is and/or the people who are stimulating pleasure, 'liberating' him from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., from having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate his self in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth that get in the way, i.e., that prevent him from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, 'justifying' (in his mind) his hatred toward the father/Father, i.e., toward the father/Father's authority that is getting in the way.
"Marx urged us to understand 'the sensuous world,' the object, reality, as human sensuous activity." (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?) In other words, for the Marxist it is stimulus-response that directs men's steps not external commands, rules, facts, and truth that inhibit or block, i.e., that prevent him from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating.
"In the words of Thoreau: 'We need pray for no higher heaven than the pure senses can furnish, a purely sensuous life.'" (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History) In other words self, i.e., self interest, i.e., lust is all there is to life, i.e., there is nothing above man, i.e., there is only man and the world that stimulates lust (for pleasure) and hate (hatred toward restraint, i.e., toward the restrainer) in him. Since it is the child's nature to lust after pleasure and hate restraint anyone who inhibits, i.e., who prevents or blocks the child from lusting after pleasure, thus engender hate must be removed from the environment (negated) in order for the child to be "normal," i.e., to think and act according to his carnal nature. The same, for the Marxist being true for all "the people."
"Neurotic symptoms [where one is caught between doing the father's/Father's will and their own will, which are in conflict with one another], with their fixations on perversions and obscenities [one's natural inclination to lust after the things of the world], demonstrate the refusal of the unconscious essence of our being to acquiesce in the dualism of flesh and spirit, higher and lower." (Brown) In other words, if you start with the flesh, i.e., with your self, i.e., with your lusts, i.e., with your self interest, i.e., with "I feel" and "I think," i.e., with your perception of right and wrong, evaluating everything from it, you 'justify' your self, i.e., your lusts, establishing your self, i.e., your lusts over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, negating the father's/Father's authority, i.e., fear of judgment for your sins (in your mind), directly effecting your actions (putting theory, i.e., your opinion, i.e., your "I think, therefore I am," i.e., your "Reason" into action, making your soul subject to your flesh, i.e., to the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains, i.e., to only that which is of the world—all other things "observable," but not fully understood (not "definable") being classified as a phenomina).
"There cannot be two kinds of reason and two kinds of Spirit; there cannot be a Divine reason and a human, there cannot be a Divine Spirit and a human, which are absolutely different. Human reason — the consciousness of one's being is indeed reason; it is the divine in man, and spirit, in so far as it is the Spirit of God, is not a spirit beyond the stars, beyond the world. On the contrary, God is present, omnipresent, and exists as spirit in all spirits." (Georg W. F. Hegel, Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion) This is a Gnostic, i.e., "divine sparks" mindset, where all is one, becoming aware of it self by negating that which is not "of and for self." In other words, using your (God given) reasoning ability to 'justify' your self, i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interest, you make (in our mind) your reasoning ability (given to you by God) yours, i.e., only of the world, using it to exclude anything that is "unreasonable," i.e., "irrational" to your carnal mind.
"For it, namely reason [ your ability to 'justify' your "self," i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interest], is itself the essential fact, the spirit, the Divine Spirit." (G. W. Hegel in Carl Friedrich, The Philosophy of Hegel) Karl Marx rejected Georg Hegel's use of the word Spirit (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') as it pointed to something other than man's natural inclination to lust after pleasure and hate restraint. In his mind, why bring it up if it does not exist in his flesh, i.e., if all there is the flesh (lust and hate) and the world that stimulates it, i.e., stimulus-response.
"Feelings, joy, and pleasure ["Empfindung, Lust, und Genuss"] are sanctioned and justified so that nature and freedom, sensuousness and reason find their unity, their right, and their gratification." (Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Vorlesungen über die Aesthetik Volume 1) Therefore, according to Hegel, lust, i.e., sensuousness and reasoning must be united if man is to know his self as he is, only of the world.
"It is not the will or desire of any one person which establish order but the moving spirit of the whole group. Control is social." (John Dewey, Experience and Education) In other words, it is your ability to 'Reason,' i.e., to 'justify' your self, i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interest before others (and them before you) that creates order ("team spirit"), not the Word of God—that divides between those doing right and those doing wrong according to it (the Word of God).
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." Ephesians 2:2,3
"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14
For the Marxist it is the child's natural inclination to lust after pleasure and hate restraint, that which he has in common with all children, not the father's/Father's authority that is the bonding agent of society, i.e., that unites. Common self interests, i.e., lust, i.e., "What can I get out of this situation and/or these people for my self?" i.e., what everyone has in common, i.e., "Building relationship upon self interest" (lust) unites. Doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will divides (between those doing the father's/Father's will and those who are not).
"Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied." Proverbs 27:20
Therefore the objective of the Marxist (basing life upon stimulus-response, i.e., upon that which is only of the world, i.e., upon on what he can see, i.e., perceive) is to remove from the environment anyone who divides "the people" based upon who is doing right and who is doing wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the Word of God, so the Marxist can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, i.e., be his "self" without having to admit he is wrong or is doing wrong, i.e., without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without having a fear of judgment for his carnal thoughts and carnal actions.
"Words and actions should help to unite, and not divide, the people." (Mao Zedong) In other words, lust for pleasure and hatred toward restraint (toward the restrainer), i.e., what everyone has in common must become the means to knowing right from wrong behavior (not the father's/Father's authority that divides "the people" on who is doing right and who is doing wrong according to his/His established commands, rules, facts, and truth).
"I am nothing and I should be everything" (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') Karl Marx, speaking for "the people," i.e., for his self is saying, "I am called a sinner, condemned, and cast out when I should be recognized as being in 'ownership' of all things and worshiped."
"The proletariat [the "child of disobedience"] thus has [I (Karl Marx) have] the same right as has the German king when he calls, the people his people and a horse his horse." (Karl Marx, Critique of 'Hegel's' Philosophy of Right) In other words, as was put into praxis in the garden in Eden "What the father/Father has is mine, i.e., what I see I own." Having participated in the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process (the praxis of common-ism) this is the mindset of most politicians today. Thinking what they see they "own" they are now making laws that 'justify' and support their self interests, i.e., their lusts, of course doing it in the name of "the people." When right and wrong behavior, i.e., law is made, i.e., established via dialogue, i.e., by the self interest, i.e., the lusts, i.e., the carnal desires of those making it, restraint of behavior, i.e., the restraint of law becomes subject to 'change' (to rapid 'change'), i.e., subject to the one(s), i.e., to the opinions of those making it ('justifying' and supporting their lusts), usurping the authority of anyone over or above them, i.e., any law restraining them. Discussion, as will be explained below restrains the law maker, making him subject to authority, i.e., to laws above him, restraining his carnal desires, i.e., his lusts, i.e., his self interests. Dialogue on the other hand 'liberates' him from any restraint, i.e., from any authority (be it God or man, i.e., his constituents) above him. He in essence becomes God, i.e., the decider of right and wrong behavior himself, making law (in his case) subject to his carnal desires, i.e., to his lusts, i.e., to his self interests of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating; the laws of the past, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., restraint having been negated (at least in his mind). All he sees he "owns," i.e., is his. The same is true for the child (of disobedience), asking the father "Why?" in response to the father's command, rule, fact, or truth (that gets in the way of his self interest, i.e., his lusts of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating), in order to draw the father into dialogue (into "I feel," "I think"—making the father's commands, rules, facts, and truth only an opinion) in order (as in "new" world order) for the child to do what he wants without the father's restraint getting in the way (so the politician can do what he wants without "rule of law" getting in the way). There is no father's authority (the father abdicates his authority, i.e., has no right to chasten the child) when right and wrong behavior is decided through dialogue, making right and wrong behavior subject to the person's opinion of the 'moment,' which is being influenced by the flesh, i.e., by lust and the world that stimulates it (and anyone manipulating it). The father's authority can only be retained in discussion, where he has the final say (if and when the child refuses to participate, i.e., insists upon dialogue), i.e. "Because I said so," "It is written," "Never the less," with threat of chastening, i.e., punishment following if the child disobeys.
The Marxist, rejecting "The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof" believes "The fruits of the earth belong to us all [to the one making this statement, i.e., to him], and the earth itself to nobody [there is no higher authority above the one making this statement, i.e., above him]." (1 Corinthians 10:26; Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on Inequality) Making his self, i.e., his natural inclination to lust after pleasure the foundation from which to distinguish between right and wrong behavior the Marxist makes the father's/Father's authority the initiator and sustainer of wrong behavior, i.e., the object to negate. For the Marxist, if there is to be worldly peace and socialist harmony the father's/Father's authority, i.e., fear of judgment for one's sins must be negated in "the people's" thoughts, directly effecting their actions, i.e., their behavior toward their self, others, the world, and authority, i.e., their relationship with one another.
"The direction which constitutes the good life is psychological freedom to move in any direction [where] the general qualities of this selected direction appear to have a certain universality." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy) In other words the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" would appear to be "good for food," "pleasing to the eyes," and "desirous to make one wise," i.e., "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride of life" would be perceived as being right to anyone (and everyone) evaluating it from their carnal nature, i.e., from their lust, i.e., from their self, i.e., from their self interest.
"For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." Romans 10:3 Leaving God's righteousness out (what "Is," i.e., I KNOW because I have been told), all man has is his perception of righteousness (what "seems to be," i.e., "I think therefore 'I am'"), making righteousness that which is only of the world.
"The words 'seem to' are significant; it is the perception which functions in guiding behavior." (Rogers) Emphasis added. In other words opinion rules instead of KNOWING (from being told).
"Social action [desire for affirmation from others] no less than physical action [lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'] is steered by perception ["What can I get out of this environment, i.e., this situation and/or these people for my self, i.e., in order to satisfy (fulfill, i.e., actualize) my lusts, i.e., my self interest"]." (Kurt Lewin in a NEA and National Training Laboratory manual edited by Kenneth D. Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change) Emphasis added. Every institution (education, business, government, religious, etc.,) has been influenced by the NTL's and organizations like them.
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
It is clear what God (God's Word) has to say about Karl Marx's, Mao Zedong's, et al way of thinking, i.e., about their rejection of the father's/Father's authority, i.e., about their not fearing judgment for their doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for their lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating, with impunity (at least in their mind). This is why prayer (to the Lord Jesus Christ), the Holy Bible, i.e., the reading of the scriptures, the Ten Commandments, and chastening were removed from the classroom, the manger scene from the county court house yard, etc., so the Marxist could sin without feeling guilty (without being reminded of his sins and of a need for a savior), thinking the same should be true for everyone else.
"Every one that is proud in heart [who establishes his self, i.e., his lusts, i.e., his self interest over and therefore against the Father's authority] is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished." Proverbs 16:5 Neither your opinion, nor the opinion of others will count on the day of judgment. So why do you "think" your opinion or the opinion of others counts today (when it comes to establishing right and wrong behavior).
"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools," Romans 1:21, 22 Witnessing the work of God in the creation, i.e., established laws (true science, i.e., stimulus-response) they make their self subject to the laws of nature, i.e., their carnal nature (so called science, i.e., "Reasoning" from their flesh), leaving God's law, i.e., God's judgment out (being told) regarding their self, i.e., their behavior.

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding." Proverbs 9:10

"For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." Acts 28:27
"Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?" Proverbs 20:9 We can not save our self from our self. Doing so we can only 'justify' our self, i.e., our ability to save our self, making our self God.
"Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me." Psalms 51:10
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverb. 3: 5-6
"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:7
The book of Job is all about four counselors, with three being false and the other being scripturally correct but all being incorrect, with more going on in heaven and on the earth than man's understanding, even the understanding (reasoning) of the righteous.
"Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies." Psalms 40:4
"... it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23

"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." Romans 8:7

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness." Romans 8:16-18
"... casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ [doing the Father's will];" 2 Corinthians 10:5
"... for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10
The gospel message is about the Father—with the Son and those following Him doing the Father's will.
"The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." John 5:30; 12:47-50
"I and my Father are one." "he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;" "the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." John 10:30; 14:9, 10 (excerpts) See also John 17:1-26
"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 12:50
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 7:21
"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it." Matthew 10:32-39
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself [deny his lusts], and take up his cross [denying the lusts of others enduring their rejection of him for doing so], and follow me [doing the Father's will]." Matthew 16:24
"... and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3 Note the word order: you fellowship with me ("that ye also may have fellowship with us") as I fellowship with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. Until the other person KNOWS the Father and the Son and you KNOW the Father and the Son they can not fellowship with you and you with them. Fellowship is based upon KNOWING the Father and the Son. Anything outside this order is only relationship, i.e., of the world, i.e., lust.
"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
"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12
"And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." 1 John 2:18
If you want to KNOW what is going on with you and the world around you must turn to the Word of God. You can not understand what is going on until you turn to (weigh everything from) it. It is all about the Father and the world, i.e., the Father's authority and your carnal nature, with you (and everyone else on the face of the earth from the garden in Eden on, i.e., in the past, in the present, and in the future) deciding between the two, i.e., which one to follow, i.e., it is all about your soul and your flesh, i.e., where you will spend eternity. You can not serve both. Without the Father all you have is self and the world that stimulates pleasure and hatred toward that which gets in the way (all you have is stimulus-response), lusting after pleasure and hating restraint (using your [God given] 'reasoning' ability to 'justify' your self, i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interest), fearing what man will do to you instead of God, i.e., concerned about what will happen to you in the here-and-now (your flesh) instead of in the there-and-then (your soul) Apart from the Father the here-and-now, i.e., fear of man blinds you to the there-and-then, i.e., to God's judgment of you for your thoughts and actions, i.e., for your "What can I get out of this situation and/or this person (or these people) for my self?" i.e., for your lust which always leads to "What will happen to me if they reject and/or turn on me?" leading to you removing from your life and the life of others anyone who gets in the way of "human relationship," i.e., "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride of life," i.e., what you and the other person have in common (the basis of common-ism; "building relationship upon self interest," thinking you are in control of life, i.e., in control of lust, when lust, i.e., fear of man, i.e., "What is going to happen to me?" is in control of you).
"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would." Galatians 5:16, 17
"A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." James 1:8 Merging your carnal desires, i.e., your "I think," i.e., your opinion and the will of God, i.e., the Word of God, making the Word of God subject to your "feelings" is confusion.
The father/Father and his/His authority is regarded as spirit/Spirit by those "of the world," i.e., by those who are "of and for self" since his/His commands, rules, facts, and truth are external and contrary to their "sense experience," i.e., to their understanding. Thus faith on their part or force by the father/Father is required in order for the them to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their self and do the father's/Father's will (spirit) instead of their will (satisfying the flesh, i.e., their lusts). Whoever defines terms for you controls your life. Man defines his self and the world around him according to his "sense experiences," i.e., according to his understanding, i.e., according to his lusts, which is contrary to the father's/Father's definition (being told). Apart from the Word of God all you have is your, i.e., man's understanding of who you are, why you are here, and where you are going, i.e., of what life is all about.
"Miserable Christians, whose words and faith still depend on the interpretations of men and who expect clarification from them! This is frivolous and ungodly. The Scriptures are common to all, and are clear enough in respect to what is necessary for salvation and are also obscure enough for inquiring minds ... let us reject the word of man." (Martin Luther, Luther's Works: Vol. 32, Career of the Reformer: II, p.217)
The following is the result of eight years of accumulated college and University classes (with a focus upon Constitutional law, European history, and philosophy) and seminary (where I went to study God's Word only to find out it was all about studying men's opinion of God's Word), five years of researching over six hundred social-psychology books (all evaluated from the Word of God, with God giving me understanding) resulting in my teaching in a University (480 level class), afterwards having over five thousand meetings across the nation, including radio and T.V., speaking on the dialectic process and its effect upon the individual and the nation (even the professors in liberal Universities, after I spoke, told their students "We can not refute a word he said."—because I had read their books, exposing them with the Word of God). It is either the Father or you. Where you spend eternity depends upon who you put your trust in. If all you are concerned about is the here-and-now, i.e., the pleasures, i.e., the lusts of the 'moment' (that which the world is intoxicated with, addicted to, and possessed by—just look at everybody staring at their i-phones, i-pads, etc.,), thus leaving the Father, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to His Word out of your conversation with your self and with others (effecting your behavior) it will not go well with you in the there-and-then. It is easy to leave the Father out when you are focused upon pleasure, i.e., your self, i.e., your lusts, i.e., your self interests as well as the pleasures, i.e., the lusts, i.e., the self interests of others, i.e., human relationship. That is what those of the world are betting on, i.e., wanting you to do (in order to "get along," i.e., in order to not make them feel guilty for their sins, i.e., admit they are wrong, and repent). The world's solution to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., having to do the father's/Father's will is to define terms according to its nature, i.e., is to "lean to its own understanding," excluding, calling into question, redefining (according to its nature), and/or removing all other definitions/people that/who are contrary to its nature (its definition) and live accordingly. This is contrary, i.e., antithetical to God's Word. If you leave God's Word, i.e., what God has to say out of your conversation with your self and with others all you have is your and their word, i.e., that which is only of the world.
"But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4
Doing the Father's will is by faith, i.e., by believing what you have been told. Doing your will is by sight, i.e., by "sense experience." While you know the world by "feelings," i.e., by "sense experience" you can only KNOW the Father by faith, i.e., by being told., i.e., by His Word.
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Timothy 3:16, 17
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
Both God and man reason from their nature, God from His righteousness, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, which is established forever, i.e., absolute, man from his carnal nature, i.e., approaching pleasure and avoiding pain (which includes avoiding the pain of missing out on pleasure), which is ever 'changing' according to the current environment (internal and external), i.e., which is temporary.
"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption." 1 Corrinthians 15:50
"So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." Romans 7:25
"... I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet." Romans 7:7
Important to KNOW: the father's/Father's authority teaches you right from wrong behavior according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, holding you accountable for being wrong, disobeying, sinning. While our earthly father is not perfect, he might be or may have been a tyrant, lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates without restraint, his office, given to him by God (to do His will in), is. His office of authority is summed up in his preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as given, teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is, i.e., by faith until understood, and discussing with those under his authority any questions they might have regarding his commands, rules, facts, and truth at his discretion (providing he deems it necessary, has time, those under his authority are capable of understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking his authority), rewarding (blessing) those who are doing right and obeying, chastening (correcting) those who are doing wrong and/or disobeying in order for them to learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their self and do right according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, casting out or expelling (grounding) those who are questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority. This is also the method or system, i.e., the political system of traditional education. It is a "top-down" political system socialist/Marxists, i.e., those of and for their self (and the world) are well aware of and seek to negate, as will be explained farther on (in their own words).
"And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." Hebrews 12:5-11
"He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." "Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him." "Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell." Proverbs 13:24; 22:15; 23:14
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6;
"Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth." Ephesians 6:1-3
"Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding." "He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding." Proverbs 4:1; 15:32
"Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1 Peter 5:5-7
"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." Ephesians 6:4 Nurture entails chastisement aka correction. Admonition entails focusing upon the Lord, making the child's thought and actions subject to Him, i.e., desires to do His will.
Not only the authority of the father over the children is hated by those of (and for) the world, in defiance to the Word of God but also the authority of the husband over the wife. It is this authority (initiated in the garden in Eden) that those of (and for) the world seek to negate so they can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience (which is the product of the father's/Father's authority) which those of (and for) the world call neurosis (where a person is caught between doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth and doing his own will, which is stimulated by the world, i.e., by the current situation and/or people present, imagined or real, having a guilty conscience, i.e., feeling guilty when thinking about or doing it).
"Adult sexuality, restricted by rules, to maintain family and society . . . leads to neurosis." "Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure [lust], . . . have all left man overly docile [subject to the father's/Father's authority], but secretly in his unconscious [in his urges and impulses to lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates] unconvinced, and therefore neurotic." "If society imposes repression [supports the father's authority in the home], and repression causes the universal neurosis of man [children obeying their parents instead of following after their own natural inclinations], . . . there is an intrinsic connection between social organization [the traditional family structure] and neurosis." "The bondage of all cultures to their cultural heritage is a neurotic construction." (Brown)
"In psychology, Freud and his followers have presented convincing arguments that the id [the child's impulses and urges of the 'moment'], man's basic and unconscious nature, is primarily made up of instincts which would, if permitted expression, result in incest, murder, and other crimes. The whole problem of therapy, as seen by this group, is how to hold these untamed forces in check in a wholesome and constructive manner, rather than in the costly fashion of the neurotic [where the person is missing out on the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, doing the father's/Father's will instead, judging, i.e., dividing from those who are not doing the father's/Father's will but their will instead]." (Rogers)
If you negate the father's authority in the home and the Father's authority in the mind of the citizens, i.e., if you negate fear of judgment for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning (for breaking the law)—in order to negate neurosis—you must have a police state ("sight based management") in order to keep order. The attack upon the traditional home requires the collecting of information on all the citizens of the world in order (in the mind of the Marxist) to prevent Fascism aka Nationalism from rising up, where the citizens turn to government to protect the traditional home. "The people," in the mindset of the Marxist (Transformational Marxist) must be global in mind not national—yet both globalism (Transformational Marxism or Communism) and nationalism (correlated to Fascism by the Traditional Marxism or Communism—since they can not perceive the individual being able to stand alone apart from "the group," i.e., apart from "the people") require the negation of the father's/husband's authority in the home, i.e., the replacement of individualism, under God (limited, representative government) with a "group think" (whether socio-centric or ethno-centric, i.e., socialistic) mindset in order to initiate and sustain control over "the people." Georg Hegel wrote some thirty years after the United States of America had become a nation, "Concerning politics in North America the need of a firm cohesion is not yet present..." "For a state to become a state it is necessary that the citizen cannot continually think of emigrating ['Go west young man'], but that the class of cultivators, no longer able to push to the outside, presses upon itself and is gathered into cities and urban professions. ... for a real state and a real government only develop when there is a difference of classes, when riches and poverty become very large and a situation arises where a great number of people can no longer satisfy its needs in the accustomed way [and revolution, i.e., overthrow of local/traditional government and family occurs]." "But America does not yet approach this tension . . ." (Georg Hegel in Carl Friedrich, The Philosophy of Hegel) Only when "the people" can no longer escape socialism (whether national or global) can socialism succeed—Fascism (Nationalism void of individualism, under God) and Communism (Globalism) both come from the same mother, i.e., socialism, which is antithetical to the traditional home (with the father/husband in control, i.e., setting the standards, under God, i.e., under a "higher authority" than man). In the traditional home the many (the children) do not make the rules, the one (the father) does.
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Genesis 2:24 God sets the standard, not man.
"This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop [pastor or shepherd in the Greek], he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil." "Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well." 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 12
"Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;" "Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered." 1 Peter 3:1, 7
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them." Colossians 3:18, 19
"Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence." 1 Timothy 2:11, 12
"To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:5
"The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife." 1 Corinthians 7:4
"Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." Ephesians 5:33
"Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication [πορνεία porneia, which we get the word pornography from, which includes adultery and incest]. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." 1 Corinthians 6:15-20
"But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." 1 Corinthians 11:3
Abraham Maslow, once he had children of his own, wrote in his journal about his children getting him into conflict with his own theory regarding how parent's are to raise their children, i.e., how parents are to behave (enjoying their lusts):
"Who should teach whom?" (children adults or adults children) he wrote, describing his own education theory, "I've been in continuous conflict over this Esalen-type, orgiastic, Dionysian-type education." (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)
"I certainly enjoy nudism as at Esalen & have no trouble with it. And I approve in principle of the advancement of knowledge & experimentation with anything." "Nakedness is absolutely right. So is the attack on antieroticism, the Christian & Jewish foundations." "Must move in the direction of the Reichian orgasm." "I must put as much of this as is possible & usable in my education book, & more & more in succeeding writings." (Maslow, Journals)
"The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination." "Freud, Hegel, ... are, like Marx, compelled to postulate external domination and its assertion by force in order to explain repression." (Brown)
"In a democratic society a patriarchal culture should make us depressed instead of glad; it is an argument against the higher possibilities of human nature, of self actualization [of man being able to lust, i.e., sin without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without feeling like he is doing something wrong]." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)
"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture [their parent's/God's authority aka the father's/Father's authority system]. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species [of the world only—that stimulates lust for pleasure and hatred toward restraint] first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature)
It is because of our earthly father's carnal nature (he has power to teach us right from wrong, holding us accountable to established commands, rules, facts, and truth but he has no power to save our soul) we are to turn to our Heavenly Father in all matters regarding right and wrong behavior, i.e., how we are to behave, i.e., what to do each and every day for our soul's sake. While the Heavenly Father is from above and our earthly father is from below they both have the same system or method of authority—authoring commands, rules, facts, and truth and enforcing them, referred to as a Patriarchal paradigm, i.e., a way of feeling, thinking, and acting toward self, others, the world, and authority where the father/Father establishes right and wrong behavior for his children/man. This is important to KNOW since the following is all about how those of the world want to negate the father's/Father's authority, making their carnal nature, i.e., lust the foundation from which to establish right and wrong behavior, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., so they can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience, i.e., with impunity, with affirmation (with your approval). Seeking after, i.e., coveting the approval of men, regarding one's lust, i.e., one's self interest is in itself lust. This is why those of (and for) the world use the children's/men's lust for the approval from one another to 'justify' their lusts. The 'justification' and preservation of your lust resides in "the group," i.e., in "the group's" approval aka affirmation. It is why you are fearful of "the group's" (man's) rejection of you, i.e., fearful of what they might do to you if you get in the way of their lust, i.e., your lust, cutting you off from "actualizing" it ("If you cut me off, i.e., get in my way I will cut you off."—fear of man, i.e., loss of lust replacing fear of God, i.e., 'judgment' for lust).
"Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee." Acts 8:22
God loves us all but judges us according to our thoughts and actions, holding us accountable for our carnal thoughts and carnal actions, forgiving us when we repent (there can be no forgiveness, i.e., mercy until you admit you are wrong, i.e., admit you are guilty, deserving no mercy, i.e., no forgiveness). The same is true for the benevolent father.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." John 3:16-19
"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous." Romans 5:19
The child's love is based upon pleasure, i.e., dopamine emancipation. The child is not in love with the toy. He is in love with the dopamine (sensation of pleasure) which contact with (or thinking or looking upon) the toy 'liberates' (emancipates) into the synaptic gaps of his nervous system. Our body naturally produces a chemical (a neurotransmitter) call dopamine that is emancipated (liberated) into a small gap (called a synaptic gap) between nerves (the posterior of the first nerve emancipating it-the anterior of the next nerve receiving it) sending (transmitting) information to the brain (and in the brain-via dendrites) that we have come in contact with something in the environment (in the world) that is pleasurable, i.e., that stimulates dopamine emancipation. For example, when a child comes in contact with something that is pleasurable in the environment (via the senses of touch, taste, sight, smell, and sound), say in this case a toy that "feels" good, i.e., that stimulates dopamine emancipation, the child's natural inclination is to look into the environment to find out what it was (that stimulated dopamine emancipation, i.e., pleasure—this is "the lust of the flesh"). Once located (this is "the lust of the eyes") the child then moves in the direction of the toy (the object) in order to gain control of it (with controlling the toy or the environment in which the toy exists guaranteeing more dopamine emancipation, not only in the present but in the future (this is "the pride of life"—all based upon approaching pleasure-avoiding pain, including the pain of missing out on pleasure). When the toy is not the child's, i.e., the child is told the toy is not his to play with and he continues to play with it, the "lust of the flesh," i.e., stimulus-response, the "lust of the eyes," coveting or lusting after the things in the environment, i.e., in the world that stimulates dopamine emancipation, and "the pride of life," i.e., the ability to control the environment, i.e., the situation and/or the people/objects that stimulates dopamine emancipation (lust) controls the child's thoughts and his actions, i.e., controls his life. You do not control dopamine emancipation. If there is no restraint, i.e., no father's/Father's authority, i.e., no fear of accountability for your carnal thoughts and carnal actions lust for dopamine emancipation controls your thoughts, controlling your actions.
"... every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death" James 1:14,15
"The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity." Psalms 94:11
"Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity." " ...: for childhood and youth are vanity." Ecclesiastes 1:2, 11:10
"Flee also youthful lusts:" 2 Timothy 2:22
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23
"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." Galatian 5:19-21
"This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness." "But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Ephesians 4:17-19, 20-24
"Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his praxis [deeds]; and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." 1 Corinthians 2:16 The old man, 'justifying' his lusts is void of God's judgment upon him for his sins. The name for the national test for teachers is Praxis, void of God's judgment upon man for his sins—all there is is that which is of (and for) the world, i.e., of and for self. The person is 'judged' based, not upon what they KNOW but how they 'Reason' in solving a problem (without prior knowledge, i.e., right and wrong based upon established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., God's Word, i.e., God's judgment upon their thinking or doing wrong controlling their thoughts).
Lust leads to violence, in order to initiate and sustain it.
"From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 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 4:1-3 (Read James chapters 4 and 5 for the total picture.)
The soul KNOWS from being told. The flesh by "sense experience." When God created Adam he made him, unlike any other living thing in the creation "a living soul." He then told ("commanded") him what he could and could not do, i.e., He told him what was right and what was wrong behavior, i.e., which trees he could eat the fruit of and which one he could not (lest he die).
"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Genesis 2:7
"And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Genesis 2:16, 17
No animal, which are all subject only to stimulus-response (approach pleasure - avoid pain) and impulses and urges (instincts) can read or write a book, i.e., can be told or tell others what is right and what is wrong behavior, i.e., what they can and can not do. By making man subject to stimulus-response (only that which is of the world) man is (deceptively) equated to an animal, approach pleasure and avoid pain, denying the fact that man does what animals can not do, i.e., reason from being told.
"Any time we teach [tell] a child something, we keep him from discovering it himself," (Jean Piaget)
The father/Father (God) always tells you up front what is going to happen to you if you disobey or do wrong, not leaving it up for you to 'discover.' Thus with the Marxist's mindset, man does not sin, he just 'discovers' his self.
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night." Psalms 1:1, 2
"Sense experience must be the basis of all science." "Science is only genuine science when it proceeds from sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) In other words: "sense experience," i.e., only that which is "of the world," i.e., that "proceeds from Nature" is the basis of law, making "the lust of the flesh," i.e., "sensuous need" and "the lust of the eyes," i.e., "sense perception" the basis from which to know right from wrong behavior.
"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen." 1 Timothy 6:20-21
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36, 37
The 'Reasoning' of man is all about him 'justifying' his self, i.e., 'justifying' his natural inclination to lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people that are stimulating, 'justifying' his natural inclination to hate restraint, i.e., to hate the father/Father and his/His authority for getting in the way. It is the father's/Father's law (that restrains/condemns the flesh) that those of the world hate, not the law of the flesh (that engenders lust).
"Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God." Romans 3:19
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." James 2:10
"For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:" "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." Romans 8:3, 2
"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." 1 John 3:8
While the law can save no one it is by the law we come to KNOW we are sinners, i.e., that we are not God, i.e., that we are not perfect, i.e., that we are not in control of life (that pleasure, i.e., lust, i.e., self interest ends, i.e., death comes—then comes 'judgment'), i.e., that we need salvation, i.e., reconciliation to the Father.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8, 9
"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." 2 Corinthians 5:10
"And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:11, 12
"For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world." 2 Corinthians 1:12
"Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead." 1 Peter 4:1-5
While the Son of God, by his shed blood on the cross, 'redeems' us from eternal damnation (for our sins, i.e., for disobeying the Father), with the Father 'reconciling' us to Himself in raising the Son from the grave—to spend eternity in His glory, man's 'reasoning' 'redeems' his self from the Father's authority, 'reconciling' his self to the world and the pleasures, i.e., lusts it stimulates—with man dying in his sins, being cast into the lake of fire that is never quenched prepared for the master facilitator of 'change' and his followers.
"When a man has finally reached the point where he does not think he knows it better than others, that is when he has become indifferent to what they have done badly and he is interested only in what they have done right, then peace and affirmation have come to him." (G. F. W. Hegel in Carl Friedrich, The Philosophy of Hegel)
By replacing wrong, the opposite of right (according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth) with "badly" (an opinion, subject to 'change') Hegel 'liberates' himself and those who follow after him from accountability before the father/Father for being or doing wrong, according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth. Hegel's "peace and affirmation" means the child/man is at peace with his "self," i.e., at peace with his carnal nature, i.e., with his lusts as he has the approval (affirmation) of others. When people dialogue their opinions to a consensus they affirm their carnal nature, i.e., their lusts (pleural in that is it not only their lust for pleasure that the environment is stimulating but also their lust for the approval from others, affirming their lusts, i.e., the "human relationship" factor), i.e., their self interests, establishing pleasure, i.e., lust and the world that stimulates it above and therefore against the father/Father and his/His authority. This ideology is also being brought into "the church."
"Our children are not strengthened when we point out what they've done wrong, but when we commend them for what they've done right." (Josh McDowell and Norm Wakefield, Chapter 10 Nurturing Christian Values, The Dad Difference: Creating an environment for your child's sexual wholeness) Nurture in the true meaning of the word entails chastisement, i.e., correction, not looking the other way when the child has done wrong.
God's peace is not man's peace and visa versa.
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33
While for the world, peace is being able to do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., to lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without fear of judgment, for the believer peace is being redeemed (by the Son) from God's judgment, i.e., being reconciled to the Father, being filled with His Holy Spirit, having joy (unspeakable) and peace (that transcends understanding) in doing the Father's will.
"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged." John 14:16, 17, 26, 27; 16:7-11
As will be explained later, there is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue. When we establish right and wrong behavior, i.e., define "truth" via dialogue, i.e., via our feelings and and our thoughts (which are subject to our feelings) we leave the Father out, i.e., we deny the Father (and therefore the Son), making our self, i.e., our lusts, i.e., our self interests the standard from which to know right and wrong behavior. There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, in an opinion, or in the consensus process, there is only our feelings, i.e., our lusts, i.e., our self interest, i.e., the "eternal present" being 'justified,' making us God (the establisher of right and wrong behavior) for the 'moment' (in our mind).
"He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." 1 John 2:22
"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." Isaiah 14:13, 14
"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; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4
"And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." Luke 4:8
Those of (and for) the world (making all subject to stimulus-response), making lust right and anyone getting in the way of lust (judging lust, i.e., prejudiced against lust, i.e., inhibiting or blocking lust) wrong, KNOW what they are doing is wrong but refuse to admit it, i.e., refuse to repent, silencing any who remind them, i.e., who get in their way.
"If the 'restoring of life' of the world is to be conceived in terms of the Christian revelation [being told], then Marx must collapse into a bottomless abyss." (Jürgen Habermas, Theory and Practice)
"Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Romans 1:32 They know of God's judgment for their sins but refuse to think upon it (accept Him) so they can sin with impunity, i.e., with men's approval (affirmation).
The law of the father/Father vs. the law of the flesh.
"For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." Romans 7:14-25
By making man only subject to the laws of nature, i.e., to "sense experience," i.e., to stimulus-response, the Marxist seeks to 'liberate' man from the law of God, i.e., from the Father's authority so man (the Marxist) can have a "better" life. Throughout history the conflict in life has been between doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth and having a "better life." While there is nothing wrong in seeking a "better life," when you do wrong and not right in order to have it you are wrong. Parent's were concerned about their children doing right and not wrong but seem now more concerned about their having a "better" life. It is the difference between the marriage vow of the past, "for better or for worse" and the present, "until someone better comes along."
"And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife." 1 Corinthians 7:10, 11 See the issue on Divorce. It is every where you turn.
By rejecting the father's/Father's authority, those of the world make law, and therefore judgment for sin null and void in their mind.
"... the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws.'" (Lukács)
"Laws must not fetter human life [inhibit or block lust]; but yield to it; they must change as the needs [the lusts] and capacities [interests/attractions of lust] of the people change." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') "Situation ethics," "values clarification," etc., where the child's carnal nature replaces the father's/Father's authority in establishing right and wrong behavior come to mind.
"Lawfulness without law [where the law of the flesh, i.e., the child's carnal nature, i.e., lust rules without (over and therefore against) the law of the father/Father getting in the way, negating the father's/Father's authority (in the individuals mind) thereby negating the guilty conscience (for disobeying his/His laws) in his thoughts, directly effecting his actions, and society]." (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment)
"Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it." Jeremiah 6:10, 13-19
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6
"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." Isaiah 3:4-5
"And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all." Luke 17:26, 27
Karl Marx built his ideology off of Heraclitus, establishing "sense experience," i.e., lust, i.e., "the boys" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the "grown" men of Ephesis.
"Every grown man of the Ephesians should hang himself and leave the city to the boys." Heraclitus
"Once the earthly family [where children learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their self in order to do the father's will] is discovered to be the secret of the Holy family [where the Son of God and those who follow Him humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their self in order to do the Father's will], the former must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice [in the persons personal thoughts and in his social actions]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)
"The family [with the father's/Father's authority] is one of these social forms which ... cannot be changed without change in the total social framework." (Max Horkheimer, Kritische Theori)
"Human consciousness [lust] can be liberated from the parental complex [the father's/Father's authority, i.e., restraint] only by being liberated from its cultural derivatives, the paternalistic state and the patriarchal God." (Brown)
Since the potential for lust, i.e., "the attraction of what is forbidden" resides in the believer as well, he has the potential of becoming his self, i.e., only of the world, providing he is placed in an environment where he can be his self, i.e., an environment 'liberated' from the Father's authority where he can think and act without fear of judgment.
"The unspeculative Christian [the believer, the man of faith in God] also recognizes sensuality as long as it does not assert itself at the expense of true reason, i.e., of faith, of true love, i.e., of love of God, of true will-power, i.e., of will in Christ [Karl Marx wrote this]. Not for the sake of sensual love, not for the lust of the flesh, but because the Lord said: Increase and multiply." "It is not sensuality which is presented ..., but mysteries, adventures, obstacles, fears, dangers, and especially the attraction of what is forbidden." (Karl Marx, The Holy Family) Emphasis added.
"Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat." Genesis 3:1-6
All you have to do, in an environment establishing right and wrong behavior is remove the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the fear of judgment and the person (the persons' paradigm) is 'changed.' By drawing the woman into dialogue, i.e., by creating a non-hostile environment, i.e., a "positive" environment, i.e., a "Ye shalt not surely die" environment where she could share her lust to "touch" the "Thou shalt surely die" tree (without fear of judgment) she was 'liberated' (in her mind) to be her self—self actualized—replacing the "Father's" authority with her lust(s) of the 'moment' that the world stimulated. Reality, i.e., what was "actual" became subject to her carnal nature, i.e., to her impulses and urges of the 'moment' that the world stimulated, no longer subject to the Word of God, i.e., to what she was told, with Adam following (lusting) after her instead of obeying God, i.e., instead of doing what he was told. (After all, all she "saw" made "sense" to her, i.e., there was nothing wrong with the "forbidden" tree, i.e., it was like all the other trees—her "Reasoning," i.e., her understanding did not and could not KNOW that the issue was not that the tree itself would kill her but her and Adam's disobedience would lead to their no longer having access to the tree of life, leading to their and everyone else's eventual death for disobedience, i.e., for sinning.) When caught, like 'liberals' they blamed someone else for their "bad" behavior, with Adam blaming the woman—"throwing her under the bus" (along with "the Father" for creating her, i.e., for creating an "unhealthy environment" for him to live in)—and the woman blaming the master facilitator of 'change'—"throwing him under the bus" for "helping" her 'justify' her lusts. The facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the Marxist, using the same method, i.e., through the use of dialogue is able to 'discover' what you covet, i.e., what you lust after, i.e., your self interest. He is then able to gain your trust, i.e., he has your best interest, i.e., your self interest, i.e., your lust(s) (what you covet) in mind. Having gained your trust he "owns" you, i.e., he is able to use you (as "human resource") to satisfy his lusts, i.e., his self interest with your affirmation, casting you aside when you no longer satisfy his lusts, i.e., his self interest or when you get in his way, doing to you what you did to the father/Father for getting in your way, i.e., in the way of your lust(s)—it is the "game" you decided to play when you turned to him for direction (advice) instead of to the father/Father. He is dependent upon you, i.e., your lusts and affirmation in order to gain and retain power (control over you), getting rid of you when you get in his way (hurt his "feelings," i.e., get in the way of his lusts which he will not forget, nor forgive) since he is only interested in lust, i.e., in the pleasures of the 'moment,' with your affirmation, not your soul, i.e., where you (and he) will spend eternity. God the Father is the Father of obedience. The master facilitator of 'change' is the father of disobedience, with all facilitator's of 'change' and those following them emulating him.
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44
Sigmund Freud rejected the father's/Father's authority as well.
"'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 husband/father no longer exercises his authority in the family, over his wife/children]." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud)
"The hatred against patriarchal suppression—a 'barrier to incest,' ... the desire (for the sons) to return to the mother culminates in the rebellion of the exiled sons, the collective killing and devouring of the father." (Sigmund Freud in Marcuse) Sigmund Freud's history of the prodigal son is not of the son coming to his senses, humbling his self, returning home, submitting his self to his father's authority, learning his inheritance was not his father's money but his father's love for him (Luke 15:11-24), but of the son joining with his "friends," returning home, killing the father, taking all that was his (the father's), using it to satisfy their carnal desires, i.e., their lusts of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, killing all the fathers in the land so all the children could be the same, i.e., like them, thereby affirming them, i.e., their "incest," 'justifying' and supporting their control over them.
"According to Freud, the ultimate essence of our being is erotic." "Eros is fundamentally a desire for union with objects in the world." "Eros is the foundation of morality." "Freud saw that in the id there is no negation [no parental authority, i.e. no Godly restraint, i.e. no "Thou shalt not"], only affirmation and eternity [only the child's/student's natural inclination to lust after dopamine emancipation]." "Children have not acquired that sense of shame which, according to the Biblical story, expelled mankind from Paradise, and which, presumably, would be discarded if Paradise were regained [if pleasure (lust) became the agenda, i.e., the 'drive' and 'purpose' of life]." "The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination [on doing the father's/Father's will]." "Our repressed desires are the desires we had unrepressed, in childhood; and they are sexual desires." "Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure, . . . have all left man overly docile, but secretly in his unconscious [in his urges and impulses of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world] unconvinced, and therefore neurotic [caught between his desire for parental approval and his lust for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulation, having a guilty conscience for thinking about or doing the latter]." "The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious; the foundation has to be recovered ['liberated' from the guilty conscience, requiring the negation of the father's/Father's authority]. (Brown)
"‘Have you merely released the beast, the id, in man?' There is no beast in man. There is only man in man, and this we have been able to release." "The innermost core of man's nature, the base of his 'animal nature,' is positive in nature." (Rogers)
Both Marxism and psychology have this one thing in common, the 'justification' of self, i.e., of lust, thus 'justifying' the negation of the father's/Father's authority that gets in the way.
"Marxian theory [society] needs Freudian-type instinct theory [man's natural inclination to lust after pleasure, including his lust for approval from others, affirming his lusts and his natural inclination to hate restraint, i.e., to hate the father's/Father's authority for getting in the way] to round it out. And of course, vice versa." "Third-Force psychology is also epi-Marxian in these senses, i.e., including the most basic scheme as true-good social conditions ['liberation' of "self," i.e., lust from the father's/Father's authority] are necessary for personal growth, bad social conditions [submission of "self" to the father's/Father's authority] stunt human nature,... This is to say, one could reinterpret Marx into a self-actualization-fostering Third- and Fourth-Force psychology-philosophy. And my impression is anyway that this is the direction in which they are going now." (Maslow, Journals)
"I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students [those who adhere to the father's/Father's authority] that the best thing for me to do was to break their backs immediately." "The correct thing to do with authoritarians is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient [decent]; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:" Romans 1:28-32
The objective is to negate the guilty conscience by replacing it with the super-ego. The guilty conscience ties us to the past, i.e., to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., to individualism, under God, effecting the present and the future. The super-ego ties us to the past, i.e., to our past resentment toward the father's/Father's authority, 'justifying' the present, i.e., 'justifying' our present resentment toward the father's/Father's authority.
"The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself." "What we call 'conscience' perpetuates inside of us our bondage to past objects now part of ourselves:'" (Brown) A definition of the guilty conscience from a Marxist's perspective.
"The personal conscience is the key element in ensuring self-control, refraining from deviant behavior even when it can be easily perpetrated." "The family, the next most important unit affecting social control, is obviously instrumental in the initial formation of the conscience and in the continued reinforcement of the values that encourage law abiding behavior." (Dr. Robert Trojanowicz, The meaning of "Community" in Community Policing)
"... the superego 'unites in itself the influences [impulses and urges, i.e., lusts and hates] of the present and of the past.'" (Brown)
"Superego development is conceived as the incorporation of the moral standards of society. Therefore the levels of the Taxonomy should describe successive levels of goal setting appropriate to superego development [socialism]." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain) Emphasis added.
How to negate the guilty conscience. Remove the father's/Father's authority, i.e., fear of 'judgment' when establishing right and wrong behavior and the guilty conscience, i.e., fear of 'judgment' is negated.
"The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child [the guilty conscience] thus usually derives from an induced field of force of an adult." "If this field of force loses its psychological existence for the child (e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority) the negative valence also disappears." (Kurt Lewin; A Dynamic Theory of Personality)
The difference between discussion and dialogue. Dialogue is the key to 'change.' Discussion inhibits or blocks it.
"In an ordinary discussion people usually hold relatively fixed positions and argue in favour of their views as they try to convince others to change." (Bohm and Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity) Discussion divides upon being right and not wrong, i.e., KNOWING, which is formal, i.e., judgmental, i.e., the father/Father retains his authority in discussion, i.e., has the final say, i.e., "Because I said so," "Never the less," "It is written." Majority vote retains the father's/Father's authority system although the father might lose out on the particular issue at hand.
"A dialogue is essentially a conversation between equals." "The spirit of dialogue, is in short, the ability to hold many points of view in suspension, along with a primary interest in the creation of common meaning." (Bohm and Peat, Science, Order, and Creativity) Dialogue unites upon "feelings," i.e., "I feel" and/or "I think," i.e., an opinion, which is informal, i.e., non-judgmental, i.e., the child retains his carnal nature in dialogue, having the final say (against authority, i.e., absolutes, i.e., the father's/Father's authority). There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, or in an opinion, or in the consensus process. There is only the child's natural inclination to lust after pleasure and hate restraint being 'justified.' Dialogue moves opinions to a consensus, negating the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience it engenders in the process.
Communism is built upon what man has in common, "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," only that which is "of the world," requiring the negation (removal from the environment) of the father's/Father's authority in order for man to become his self, i.e., able to lust without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without feeling guilty for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for being his self.
"Not feeling at home in the sinful world, Critical Criticism must set up a sinful world in its own home." "Critical Criticism is a spiritualistic lord, pure spontaneity, actus purus, intolerant of any influence from without." (Karl Marx, The Holy Family) Emphasis added.
"Criticism proceeds on to praxis [for the Marxist it is not enough to criticize authority, authority which restrains human nature, alienated man from himself and the world, in thought or in word, criticism against the Patriarchal authority must be put into social action, i.e. treating the patriarch as "irrational" and therefore "irrelevant" until he responds in reaction, then by force, with social approval, remove him (annihilate him)]." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right ed. Joseph O'Malley)
"Estrangement is a phase of the dialectical process, and that by experiencing and overcoming it [children 'discovering' their commonalty with one another and uniting as one in overcoming parental authority, i.e., separating themselves from, i.e., rejecting that which divides them] man creates his own self and then fulfills himself as a man [the child creates and fulfills his "self" in 'liberating' his "self" from the parental authority system itself, finding his identity in the collective, i.e., in the children of the community instead]." (Karl Marx in John Lewis, The life and Teaching of Karl Marx)
"The dialectic will go on until we reach the absolute whole, that which includes everything within itself, and so cannot possibly depend upon anything outside itself." (Frederick Beiser, Hegel) In other words, in a "healthy" environment there is no father's/Father's authority telling the children what they can and can not do.
According to Karl Marx, the child being judged for his sinful nature, i.e., his natural inclination to lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, in his effort to "save" his self create, in his imagination a sinful world, i.e., a world that "ought" to be, where he will not be judged for his carnal thoughts and carnal actions. Without the facilitator of 'change' "helping" the child express (role-play) his "ought," thereby negating the father's/Father's authority in his actions the child can not overcome the father's/Father's authority in his self, which, according to Karl Marx the child 'created' in his obedience to the father/Father in the first place.
"The life which he has given to the object sets itself against him as an alien and hostile force." (Karl Marx MEGA I/3, pp. 83-84)
"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." "... the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth;" Genesis 6:5; 8:21
By negating the father's/Father's authority you negate the law, thus negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, removing those who get in the way without having a guilty conscience.
"The peasantry [the traditional family] constantly regenerates the bourgeoisie [the father's/Father's authority system]—in positively every sphere of activity and life." "We must learn how to eradicate all bourgeois habits, customs, and traditions everywhere." (Vladimir Lenin, Left-Wing Communism: an Infantile Disorder An Essential Condition of the Bolsheviks' Success May 12, 1920) Millions, hundreds of millions of people have died (and continue to die) violent deaths as a result of this ideology.
"Can the student accept the fact that the traditional family might be changed and might possibly disappear?" (Paul Dressell et al. General Education: Explorations in Evaluation, American Council on Education)
"All cooperative schemes which provide equal remuneration to the skilled and industrious and the ignorant and idle must work their own downfall. For by this unjust plan they must of necessity eliminate the valuable members and retain only the improvident, unskilled, and vicious." (Robert Dale Owen, Robert Owen's son)
"Socialism rewards bad work, capitalism rewards good work." (Common knowledge in Europe, by those who have had to live under socialism.)
"The re-interpretation and eventually eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainty of the old people, these are the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapy." "If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility." "Psychiatry must now decide what is to be the immediate future of the human race. No one else can." (G. B. Chisholm, Reestablishment of Peacetime Society: The Responsibility of Psychiatry)
"As the Frankfurt School [Theodor Adorno, Erick Fromm, etc., including Kurt Lewin, who edited their newspaper] wrestled with how to 'reinvigorate Marx', they 'found the missing link in Freud.'" (Martin Jay, The Dialectical Imagination: A History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research, 1923-1950)
The soviet system was an effort to negate the father's/Father's authority in establishing policy in Communist Russia. György Lukács, in the 1920's headed up a group of Marxists working out a procedure to make the soviet system (a diverse group of people, dialoging their opinions to a consensus, over social issues, in a facilitated meeting, to a predetermined outcome, that no policy be made without a diverse group of people, dialoguing their ...., thus negating the father's/Father's authority in setting policy) more effective in controlling the outcome of meetings (preventing the father's/Father's authority from taking over meetings, setting policy—TO PARTICIPATE IS TO ABDICATE, I.E., TO NEGATE). In the early 30's The Institute of Social Research (György Lukács' research group), having settled in Frankfurt, Germany (Lukács himself having returned to soviet Russia), fleeing Fascist Germany, came to America where they entered our Universities, from there spreading their dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process throughout the land, injecting it, via the National Training Laboratories, Western Behavioral Sciences Institute, etc., into education, into business, into government, and even into the "church," establishing "sense experience," i.e., lust over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority in setting policy. Instead of fighting the "church," those of the world have now joined it—through the praxis of facilitation (being "positive," i.e., building relationship with one anther based upon common self interests and not "negative," i.e., judging one another's thoughts and actions from God's Word) "helping" it grow itself (by being tolerant of ambiguity, i.e., by tolerating unrighteousness, i.e., by replacing doctrine, i.e., the preaching, teaching, and discussing of the Word of God, accepting it as it is, making man subject to it with the building of relationships, i.e., by the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, i.e., to a feeling of oneness, making it, i.e., God's Word and the "church" subject to men's opinions). Question the use of psychology, even in the "church" today and see how quickly you will be censored (being perceived as being "irrational" therefore becoming "irrelevant" to "the people," i.e., getting in the way of their "experience"—who, instead of worshiping God, worship the "experience, " i.e., the sensation of worshiping God; that is the outcome of tolerating unrighteousness, i.e., of tolerating sin [God is patient, that we might repent but not tolerant, looking the other way when we sin]).
"Experience [lust and the world that stimulates it] 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." (Rogers)
"Humanism asserts that the test of human conduct must be found in human experience; concern for man replaces concern about pleasing God. Humanism elevates man to the rank of God." "The answer to man's predicament lies in the realization by individual man, that all men are essentially one and that the one is God." (Leonard Wheat, Paul Tillich's Dialectical Humanism)
"The person at the peak experience is godlike . . . complete, loving, uncondemning, compassionate and accepting of the world and of the person." (Abraham Maslow, Toward a Psychology of Being)
"The ideas of the Enlightenment taught man that he could trust his own reason [using the reasoning ability God gave him to 'justify' his lust for pleasure and hatred toward restraint] as a guide to establishing valid ethical norms and that he could rely on himself [his own carnal nature], needing neither revelation [the Word of God] nor that authority of the church [the preaching of the Word] in order to know good and evil." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and Its Theorists)
"Enlightenment is man's release from his self-incurred tutelage. Tutelage is man's inability to make use of his understanding without direction from another. Self-incurred is this tutelage when its cause lies not in lack of reason but in lack of resolution and courage to use it without direction from another. Sapere Aude! Dare to know! 'Have courage to use your own reason!'- that is the motto of enlightenment." (Immanuel Kant, Konigsberg in Prussia, 30 September 1784)
"We must ultimately assume at the highest theoretical levels of enlightenment ... a preference or a tendency ... to identify with more and more of the world, moving toward the ultimate of mysticism, a fusion with the world, or peak experience, cosmic consciousness, etc." "Enlightened economics must assume as a prerequisite synergic institutions set up in such a way that what benefits one benefits all." "Enlightenment management and humanistic supervision can be a brotherhood situation." "The more enlightened the religious institutions get, that is to say, the more liberal they get, the greater will be the advantage for an enterprise run in an enlightened way [according to man's carnal nature]." (Maslow, Management)
In 1881 the "Textus Receptus," the Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic source of the German (Luther) and English (Tyndale, Geneva, and King James) bibles was intentionally replaced with Alexandrian (dialectic, i.e., dialogue, i.e., gnostic) manuscripts (Vaticanus B, Sinaiticus Alef, Codex X, MSS; which are the source of the Nestle, Aland, Metzger Greek which are used for translation into all modern bibles), which conflict with one another forcing confusion and conflict (uncertainty) into the World of God (which is no longer the Word of God) bringing dialogue, i.e., men's opinions (heresy) into the study of the bible—the intended purpose—engendering apostasy.
"Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness." Luke 11:35
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." 2 Corinthians 11:14, 15
"Woe unto them that call evil ["human nature," i.e., lust] good, and good [the Father's authority] evil; that put darkness [pleasure] for light, and light [obedience to the Father] for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5:20, 21
"In the eyes of the dialectic philosophy [using dialogue, i.e., "feelings," i.e., "sense experience" to come to the "truth"], nothing is established for all times, nothing is absolute or sacred." (Karl Marx's ideology, as explained by Friedrich Engels)
"We recognize the point of view that truth and knowledge are only relative and that there are no hard and fast truths which exist for all time and places." (Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 1: Cognitive Domain)
While for God, change is your heart being changed from serving your self and the world that controls you to serving and worshiping Him (according to His Word) 'change' to those of the world is your adaptability to the 'change'—in response to the situation of the 'moment' (that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating). It is therefore your holding onto established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., faith in God that stands in the way of you being your self, according to your carnal nature that has to be negated. If you are "tolerant of ambiguity" you are "intolerant of absolutes."
"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways, the objective however, is change." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #11) Inscribed on Karl Marx's tomb so it must be important.
"Oughtiness is itself a fact to be perceived." "We have to study the conditions which maximize ought-perceptiveness." "Discovering one's real nature is simultaneously an ought quest and an is quest." (Abraham Maslow The Farther Reaches of Human Nature)
"... changing human relations ... must consider not only what 'is' and what 'can be' but also, what 'ought to be.'" (Benne)
"In short, philosophy as theory finds the 'ought' implied within the ‘is', and as praxis seeks to make the two coincide." (Joseph O'Malley translator of Karl Marx's Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right) Finding the lust ("ought") in the father makes it possible to unite the father with the child's lust ("ought"), the role of dialogue.
All children are "philosophers" or potential "philosophers," thinking about how the world "ought" to be ('justifying' and supporting their lusts of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating), hating restraint, i.e., hating the world that "Is," i.e., a world with the father's/Father's authority getting in the way. "The problem" comes (according to the Marxist, i.e., to the facilitator of 'change,' having rejected the world that "Is," i.e., the world of restraint, i.e., the father's/Father's authority) when children become parents themselves they force their children to do right and not wrong according to how they think the world "ought" to be, making their "ought" the world that "is," according to their needs, restoring the father's/Father's authority, preventing their children from becoming their self, i.e., self actualized, i.e., of the world only, preventing 'change.' The father also knows the cost of being wrong. The child does not. Thus the father forces the child to do right and not wrong according his standards for the sake of the child, sustaining the authority of the father in the home and in society. Without "help" from the Marxist, i.e., the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the psychotherapist children and society will remain forever subject to the father's/Father's authority system, i.e., subject to the world that "Is," i.e., that refuses to 'change,' i.e., refuses to justify lust for everyone, including the children.
"Dr. Skinner says: 'We must accept the fact that some kind of control of human affairs is inevitable. We cannot use good sense in human affairs unless someone engages in the design and construction of environmental conditions which affect the behavior of men.'" (Rogers)
"We have to study the conditions which maximize ought-perceptiveness." "Oughtiness is itself a fact to be perceived." "If we wish to permit the facts to tell us their oughtiness, we must learn to listen to them in a very specific way which can be called Taoistic [sense experienced]." (Abraham Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature)
"In short, philosophy as theory ["Reasoning" from an opinion, i.e., from "feelings," i.e., from lust] finds the 'ought' [lust, i.e., the child's carnal nature] implied within the 'is' [within the one in authority], and as praxis [setting aside the father's/Father's authority] seeks to make the two coincide [making the child's carnal nature and the father's carnal nature, i.e., lust the source for authority]." (Comments by Joseph O'Malley Ed. of Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') Tolerance of ambiguity negates the father's/Father's authority.
"The philosophy of praxis is the absolute secularization of thought, an absolute humanism of history [where all thought and action is void of the father's/Father's authority]." (Antonio Gramsci, Selections from the Prison Notebooks) The name for the national test for teachers is Praxis.
"Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds [the Greek word for deeds is praxis];" Colossians 3:9 The "old" man sinned, i.e., lusted after the things of the world without fearing judgment, i.e., without fearing God (without bringing God and his judgment, i.e., His Word up in his conversation with his self and with others).
A "change agent... should know about the process of change, how it takes place and the attitudes, values and behaviors that usually act as barriers.... He should know who in his system are the 'defenders' or resisters of innovations [who are 'defenders' or resisters of 'change,' i.e., of lust and the world that stimulates it]." (Ronald Havelock, A Change Agent's Guide to Innovation in Education)
"For actual changes in 'content' and 'method' we must change the people who manage the school program. To change the curriculum of the school means bringing about changes in people—in their desires, beliefs and attitudes, in their knowledge and skill . . . curriculum change should be seen as a type of social change, change in people. Curriculum change means a change in the established ways of life, a change in the social standards. It means a restructuring on knowledge, attitudes, and skills in a new pattern of human relations. Educators and others in the role of change agents must have a method of social engineering relevant to initiating and controlling the change process." (Benne)
"A successful change includes, therefore, three aspects: unfreezing the present level ['justifying' your natural inclination to lust after pleasure in a non-judgmental, non-hostile environment (judgment and hostility will now be directed toward those who resist or refuse to participate, i.e., who continue to hold onto the father's/Father's authority], moving to the new level ['liberation' from, i.e., negation of the father's authority and the guilty conscience it engenders for lusting after pleasure], and freezing group life on the new level [finding your identity in "the group," with lust (yours and "the groups") being the common denominator, i.e., the bonding element]." (Benne)
"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) It is the key to brainwashing, i.e., washing the father's/Father's authority, i.e., accountability for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning from the persons thoughts, effecting his actions. See Unfreezing, Moving or Changing, Refreezing People, Force Field Analysis, and Group Dynamics for more on the subject.
"Change in organization [from 'loyalty' to the father/Father to 'loyalty' to "the group" and the facilitator of 'change'] can be derived from the overlapping between play and barrier behavior [between dialogue and discussion, which when used together (in establishing right and wrong behavior) engenders confusion i.e., cognitive dissonance—"The lack of harmony between what one does and what one believes." "The pressure to change either one’s behavior or ones belief" (Ernest R. Hilgard, Introduction to Psychology)]." (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, "frustration and regression: an experiment with young children" in Child Behavior and Development)
The facilitator of 'change' engenders a political system that is hostile toward the father's/Father's authority. KNOWING by being told and knowing by "sense experience" (when it comes to knowing right from wrong behavior) are both political systems. They are antithetical to one another. One is based upon the father's/Father's authority the other upon the facilitator of 'change.' The facilitator of 'change,' perceiving his self to be the personification of "the people," who like him lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating sees it as his duty to 'justify' them, i.e., their lusts, i.e., their self interests thus 'justifying' his self, i.e., his lusts, i.e., his self interests, converting, silencing, censoring, removing anyone who gets in his, i.e., in "the people's" way. When he says "It is not about you" when you question his actions he is saying "It is all about me, so I can lust after pleasure without having a guilty conscience, with your affirmation. If you refuse to affirm me, i.e. my lusts or get in my way, 'the people' will remove (negate) you (since, having 'justified' their lusts I now "own" them). It appears I must keep an eye on you from now on for my 'good.'" All facilitator's of 'change' and their followers are intoxicated with, addicted to, and possessed by lust, 'justifying' all who think and act like them, converting (seducing, deceiving, and manipulating), silencing, censoring, removing anyone who gets in their way (including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous) so they can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, without having a guilty conscience, with your affirmation.
"Our aim is not merely to describe prejudice [established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's/Father's authority that get in the way of lust, i.e., that inhibits or blocks "human nature"] but to explain it in order to help in its eradication. Eradication means re-education." (Adorno)
The greatest opportunity for 'change' to take place is in the environment where the child is learning what is right and what is wrong behavior. By replacing the father's/Father's authority (KNOWING by being told) with the facilitation of 'change' (knowing by "sense experience") the child's way of thinking is 'changed,' directly effecting his behavior. While the child in the home is subject to the one, i.e., to the father, thus subject to his established commands, rules, facts, and truth in "the group" he becomes subject to his and everyone else's carnal nature, i.e., to what they have in common (the basis of Common-ism). Twenty students, for example, from twenty different homes, with father's who disagree with one another on personal-social issue (regarding right and wrong behavior) results in twenty students, holding onto their father's position (authority) refusing to get along with one another when it comes to right and wrong behavior (personal-social issues). By switching ("shifting") communication, i.e., curriculum in the classroom from the preaching, teaching, and discussing of established commands, rules, facts, and truth which are to be learned by faith and obeyed as given, which retains the father's/Father's authority system (engendering division based upon those doing right and who is doing wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, which is correlated to being "prejudiced") to the students dialoguing their opinions, i.e., their carnal desires (lusts) of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or students are stimulating, to a common "feeling" of agreement (at least tolerance), i.e., to a consensus (in an environment void of the father's/Father's authority system, where the students can share their carnal desires, i.e., their lusts without fear of being judged, condemned, and cast out), unity (which is based upon the students carnal nature, i.e., lusts—what they all have in common) negates division (which is caused by the father's/Father's authority system engendering individualism, under God, i.e., "rule of law").
"The dialectical method was overthrown—the parts [the children] were prevented from finding their definition [their identity] within the whole [within "the group," through dialogue 'justifying' their lusts]." (Lukács)
"Thinking through the process it is dialectically faulty to start with the negative, with anxiety [with the father's/Father's authority, i.e., with having to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., with being held accountable for being wrong, disobeying, sinning]. The problem is to name the dynamic factor provoking anxiety to emerge [the father's/Father's authority coming between the child and the object he is lusting after, taking or threatening to take it away]. Anxiety is a function of spontaneity [reaction of hate and violence toward the restrainer, i.e., toward the person(s) taking the object of lust away (forever)]. Spontaneity can be defined as the adequate response to a new situation, or the novel response to an old situation. With decrease of spontaneity anxiety increases. With entire lose of spontaneity anxiety reaches its maximum, the point of panic [when the child is totally focused on the object of his lust and fears it being taken away from him, i.e., losing it forever he is primed to act, i.e., to attack (at all cost, i.e., without considering the consequences)]." (J. L. Moreno, Who Shall Survive)
As long as the father/Father remains the thesis, i.e., the father's/Father's authority remains in control of the environment synthesis, i.e., unity based upon the child's carnal nature (socialism) is prevented from becoming reality. By making the child's feelings, i.e., lust the thesis, instead of the father's/Father's authority (doing right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth) the father/Father authority becomes the antithesis, engendering synthesis, with the children 'discovering' their identity in one another, i.e., in their natural inclination to lust after pleasure and hate restraint. Placing a commands, rules, facts, truth based child in a feelings (lust) based environment (replacing discussion with dialogue), when it comes to establishing right and wrong behavior reveals his "adaptability to 'change,'" He is either going to be converted, silenced, censored, or removed (martyred). All children are being graded by this method.
"Individuals move not from a fixity through change to a new fixity [from doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, truth, changing their position only when persuaded with facts and truth], though such a process is indeed possible [in other words, "We do not want to think about/focus on/accept that way of thinking"]. But [through a] continuum from fixity to changingness [from belief, i.e., faith and obedience to theory, i.e., opinion], from rigid structure to flow [from "What does the father/Father want me to do?" to "What do I want to do?" and "What will 'the group' think?"], from stasis to process [from doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth to self (lust) 'justification']." "At one end of the continuum the individual avoids close relationships [with those who are deviant, i.e., doing wrong, disobeying, sinning], which are perceived as being dangerous. At the other end he lives openly and freely in relation to the therapist and to others [those doing wrong, disobeying, sinning], guiding his behavior on the basis of his immediate experiencing [his lust for pleasure (lust) and his lust for "the group's" affirmation, 'justifying' his lusts]– he has become an integrated process of changingness." (Rogers)
"A natural step in the present study, therefore, was to conceive of a continuum extending from extreme conservatism to extreme liberalism and to construct a scale which would place individuals along this continuum." (Adorno)
"All individuals (organisms) exist in a continually changing world of experience (phenomenal field) of which they are the center." (Carl Rogers, Client-Centered Therapy) Thus, anyone in the environment who engenders or 'justifies' lust ('change') is "good." Therefore, anyone in the environment who inhibits or blocks lust ('change') is "evil" and must be, converted, silenced, censored, and/or removed for the "good" of the environment, i.e., "the people."
"And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God:" Matthew 19:17
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." James 1:17
"Aristotle is to theology as darkness is to light." "Virtually the entire Ethics of Aristotle is the worst enemy of grace." (Luther's Works: Vol. 31, Career of the Reformer: I, p.12) Aristotle believed a "good" environment created a "good" (virtuous) person, that "goodness" resides in a person, waiting to be realized (actualized) if properly nurtured, i.e., if the person is raised (educated) properly—making man, i.e., self the definer of good and evil instead of God (who alone is good).
By man defining "good" (via dialogue) he makes his self, i.e., lust God, making God, i.e., "good" readily adaptable to 'change,' i.e., subject to the lusts of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating. 'Creating' a "good" environment in which to 'create' a "good" man can not produce a good man, it can only 'create' a man who is "good," i.e., God in his own image.
"That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing." (The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, translated by Dennis W. Hauck.) "The Hermetic tradition was both moderate and flexible, offering a tolerant philosophical religion, a religion of the (omnipresent) mind, a purified perception of God, the cosmos, and the self, and much positive encouragement for the spiritual seeker, all of which the student could take anywhere." (Tobias Churton The Golden Builders: Alchemists, Rosicrucian's, and the First Freemasons.)
"... the meaning of sin [good and evil]... is dependent on the arbitrary choice of the sophists [the 'reasoning,' i.e., lusts of men]." (Luther's Works: Vol. 32, Career of the Reformer: II, p.216)
The power of "the group," i.e., finding one's identity in "the people."
"(T)he group to which an individual belongs is the ground for his perceptions, his feelings, and his actions" (Kurt Lewin, Resolving social conflicts: Selected papers on group dynamics)
"It is usually easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately." "The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to the group." (Kurt Lewin in Benne) Your desire to be approved (affirmed) by the group, i.e., "What can I get out of this situation and/or these people (or person) for my self?" and fear of being rejected by the group, i.e., "What will happen to me if the reject and/or turn on me?" i.e., lust for pleasure and fear of man (socialism) controls your life.
"One of the most fascinating aspects of group therapy is that everyone is born again, born together in the group." "There is no more important issue than the interrelationship of the group members." "To question the value or activities of the group, would be to thrust himself into a state of dissonance." Long cherished but self-defeating beliefs and attitudes may waver and decompose in the face of a dissenting majority." "… few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [loyalty to the father's/Father's authority] in the face of apparent group unanimity; and the individual rejects critical feelings toward the group at this time to avoid a state of cognitive dissonance. (Irvin D. Yalom, Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy) Emphasis added
"... once you can identify a community [where people are willing to 'compromise,' i.e., are willing to set aside their belief or faith, i.e., the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth in order to get along or solve problems], you have discovered the primary unity of society above the individual and the family that can be mobilized ... to bring about positive social change." (Trojanowicz) Emphasis added. Trojanowicz then wrote of using crime (the citizens fear of crime) to gain access [by the community police, i.e., by the communist police] to the geographic community [overcoming the loyalty of the local police to the local (traditions and customs of the local) neighborhood].
"It is not individualism [the child, humbling, denying, dying to his "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will] that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society [the child's desire for approval from others, requiring him to compromise in order to "get along," i.e., in order to "build relationship"] is the necessary framework through which freedom and individuality ["freedom" from the father's/Father's authority and "freedom" to "lust" after pleasure without having a guilty conscience] are made realities." (Karl Marx, in John Lewis, The Life and Teachings of Karl Marx)
"The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #6)
"The individual is emancipated ['liberated' from the father's/Father's authority] in the social group." "Freud commented that only through the solidarity of all the participants could the sense of guilt [the guilty conscience which is engendered by the father's/Father's authority] be assuaged." (Brown)
"For one class to stand for the whole of society, another must be the class of universal offense and the embodiment of universal limits. A particular social sphere must stand for the notorious crime of the whole society, so that liberation from this sphere appears to be universal liberation. For one class to be the class par excellence of liberation, another class must, on the other hand, be openly the subjugating class." "The only practically possible emancipation is the unique theory which holds that man is the supreme being for man." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right) In other words, not until the children can find their identity in one another can they unite as one in overcoming the effect of the father's/Father's authority in themselves, 'justifying' their negation of the father's/Father's authority in society.
While for the father/Father money is used to sustain a way of thinking and doing things that are in agreement to his standards, to those of the world, money is stored up pleasure, i.e.., dopamine emancipation. The father, controlling the flow of money distributes it to those who are doing right and not wrong according to his/His standards, sustaining his way of thinking, cutting out of his will (casting out of the garden) those who are antithetical to him and his authority, i.e., who are doing their will instead of his, i.e., who are spending money on their lusts instead of living according to his standards. The children of the world, as Sigmund Freud explained, thinking whatever they see they own, seek to gain access to the father's money in order to spend it on their self, i.e., to satisfy their lusts., requiring the negation of the father's authority (in their thoughts and in their actions) to accomplish the deed. Money, in local's hands is spent to sustain their customs and traditions while the children of the world seek to gain access to it, removing it from local control in order to spend it on their lusts. Discussion, with the father having the final say on how the money is to be spend, keeps the money local, making money and those having access to it subject to the father's authority. Dialogue, on the other hand, allows money to flow from the local to the global, to the children of disobedience, based upon the children's self interest not the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth. As they say "follow the money trail" and you will know who is in control of the land. This is the 'change' that has been taking place over the years in the nation, where limited government, which once recognizing and protecting private convictions, private property, private business (freedom of speech and religion) has now, via corporations, banks, utilities, education (all subject to Federal control) now force social (socialist) ideologies down the throats of the citizens. Replacing discussion with dialogue, regarding right and wrong behavior, i.e., regarding the laws your town council are subject to, 'liberates' them and local money from local control, making it, them, and the citizens subject to global control. To participate is to 'change,' i.e., their participation 'changes' everything.
To participate in the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process, i.e., the dialectic process, i.e., the so called "scientific" process (in establishing right and wrong behavior) is to capitulate (abdicate) your soul to the process of 'change,' i.e., to Marxism
"'Capital' [stored up dopamine emancipation]… is, according to Marx, 'not a thing but a social relation between persons mediated through things.' 'These relations,' Marx states, 'are not those between one individual and another [as equals], but between worker and capitalist, tenant and landlord [children and their parents, worker and the boss, i.e., a "top-down" order], etc.,. Eliminate these relations and you abolish the whole of society [anarchy prevails, production comes to a halt]; …… a scientifically acceptable solution does exist [dialogue, i.e., dialectic "Reasoning"]… For to accept that solution, even in theory, would be tantamount to observing society from a class standpoint [from the children's perspective, i.e., feelings] other than that of the bourgeoisie [from the parent's established commands, rules, facts, and truth which are to be accepted as "Is," by faith and obeyed]. And no class can do that-unless it is willing to abdicate its power freely [either the child humbles, denies, dies to, controls, disciplines, capitulates his self in order to do the parent's (the father's/Father's) will or the parent's abdicate their "top-down" authority ('justifying' the child's carnal nature in the mind of the child) in order to keep "relationship" with the child]." (Lukács)
Replace a "negative" environment (where the father/Father is in charge) with a "positive" environment (where the facilitator of 'change' is in charge, i.e., 'liberating' the child from fear of the father's/Father's authority so he can be his self, i.e., of the world only) and the child's way of thinking is 'changed,' thus 'changing' his behavior.
"The individual may have 'secret' thoughts ["lusts"] which he will under no circumstances reveal to anyone else if he can help it [out of fear of being judged, rejected, and/or punished]. To gain access [through getting him or her to dialogue, i.e., to share his or her "feelings," i.e., carnal desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment' (that he is internally, i.e., privately struggling with) 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] ." (Adorno)
"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself [one's lusts] 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)
"Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure." (Brown)
"Group members must be able to synthesize individual 'felt' needs [lusts] with common group 'felt' needs [lusts—turning on those who remain loyal to the father's/Father's authority]." (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)
"Only when the immediate interests [lusts, i.e., self interests] are integrated into a total view and related to the final goal of the process do they become revolutionary [overthrowing the father's/Father's authority in the individual, in "the group," and in society]." "The whole system of Marxism stands and falls with the principle that revolution [negation of the father's/Father's authority in setting policy] is the product of a point of view in which the category of totality ["group think," what all children have in common, i.e., lust for pleasure and fear of losing it] is dominant." (Lukács)
"Revolutionary violence [overthrow of the father/Father and his/His authority] reconciles the disunited parties [the children/"the people"] by abolishing the alienation of class antagonism [the father's/Father's authority over the children/"the people"] that set in with the repression of initial morality [lust]. … the revolution that must occur is the reaction of suppressed life [hatred toward restraint, i.e., toward authority], which will visit the causality of fate upon the rulers [the parents, the property owner, the business owner, etc., i.e., the father]. It is those who establish such domination and defend positions of power of this sort who set in motion the causality of fate [hate and violence toward them], divide society into social classes [parents over children, owners over workers, God over man, etc.,], suppress justified interests [lusts], call forth the reactions of suppressed life [hate and violence], and finally experience their just fate in revolution [violence against and overthrow of their right of person (individuality, under God), right of conviction (freedom of speech and religion), property, and business]." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory)
"An act of violence is any situation in which some men prevent others from the process of inquiry ...any attempt to prevent human freedom is an 'act of violence.' Any system which deliberately tries to discourage critical consciousness [questioning authority] is guilty of oppressive violence. Any school which does not foster students' capacity for critical inquiry is guilty of violent oppression." (Paulo Freire Pedagogy of the Oppressed)
"Bypassing the traditional channels of top-down decision making [the father's/Father's authority, i.e., "rule of law"] our objective centers upon transforming public opinion into an effective instrument of global politics." "Individual values must be measured by their contribution to common interests and ultimately to world interests transforming public consensus into one favorable to the emergence of a stable and humanistic world order." "Consensus is both a personal and a political step. It is a precondition of all future steps." (Ervin Laszlo, A Strategy for the Future: The Systems Approach to World Order)
The Constitution, unique amongst the nations, limited the power of those in government (telling those in government what they could and could not do) so the individual citizen could have the most rights, protecting him from governmental control over his life. Instead of having a King or getting rid of the King it made the citizen, i.e., the father over his home, property, business the King.
"despotism ... predominates in the human heart." (George Washington, Farewell Address)
By drawing your representative into dialogue, when it comes to making law, law becomes subject to his (your "representatives") self interests, not to his constituents (your) standards (the reason he was voted into office) or to established law (which were established in order to protect you from his self interest, i.e., from his using the office making law to satisfy, i.e., to fulfill his lusts—at your expense).
"On account of the absolute and natural oneness of the husband, the wife, and the child [their common lust for pleasure including their lust for the approval from others], where there is no antithesis [no "top-down" right-wrong way of thinking and acting] of person to person or of subject to object, the surplus is not the property of one of them, since their indifference is not a formal or a legal one." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
"Parents have no right upon their offspring except a psychological right. Literally the children belong to universality [to him and to those who think like him]." (J. L. Moreno, Who Shall Survive?)
In other words, your spouse, your children, your property, your business, and even your soul does not belong to you but to the socialist, i.e., to the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., to the one defining these terms. Rejecting the father's/Father's authority, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father/Father having the final say, i.e., "Because I said so," "It is written," replacing it with your carnal desires of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating those of the world negate your having the right of inheritance, posterity, history, tradition, unalienable rights, sovereignty, representation (representative government), limited government, local control, culture, heritage, absolutes, private convictions, private property, private business, "limits and measures," being wrong, humbling, denying, dying to, disciplining, controlling, capitulating your "self," having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, for hating and negating anyone who gets in your way, including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous, contrition, repentance, forgiveness, salvation, conversion, redemption, and reconciliation (for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning), fellowship, etc.. They are all missing (negated) in and through your "representative" using the dialectic process, i.e., dialogue in establishing right and wrong behavior, i.e., law. What You Lose In Dialogue.
Building relationship upon self interests: Building relationship upon self interest ("What can I get out of this situation and/or person or people for my self, i.e., to fulfill my lusts) is the hallmark of Socialism-Marxism-Globalism, i.e., totalitarianism on a global scale—you can run but you can not hide, i.e., as in the garden in Eden, "what they see they own. " (See the issue Sight Based Management.) You lose your rights (freedom of speech and religion) when dialogue, i.e., your representatives self interest, i.e., his lusts, i.e., his "What can I get out of this office for my self" is used to make law. The same is true for those applying (interpreting) the law. When they ask you to list your assets (your children's inheritance, etc.,) instead of whether you know the difference between right and wrong you know you are in the heart of the beast.
"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) When the court turns to dialogue, i.e., to feelings, i.e., to self interest when it comes to right and wrong behavior, i.e., to when it comes to the law, the criminal, being punished for being his self becomes the victim and the victim, making the criminal feel bad about himself, i.e., feel guilty for being his self becomes the criminal.
"The justice of state constitutions is to be decided not on the basis of Christianity, not from the nature of Christian society [not from the father's/Father's authority] but from the nature of human society [from the child's carnal nature, i.e., lust, i.e., from the child's self interest]." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') Heraclitus's ideology (get the father's to negate their self so the children can be their self) is the foundation of Marxism.
Opinion trumps law, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth when it is used to carry out law, making established commands, rules, facts, and truth subject to 'change,' i.e., subject to the one carrying out law (making law subject to their "feelings," i.e., to their self interest).
In ROE V WADE "rule of law," i.e., "Every system of law known to civilized society generated from or had as its component one of two well known systems of ethics, stoic or Christian [men's opinions or the Father's authority]. The COMMON LAW draws its subsistence from the latter, its roots go deep into that system, the Christian concept of right and wrong or right and justice motivates every rule of equity. It is the guide by which we dissolve domestic friction's and the rule by which all legal controversies are settled." was replaced with self interest, i.e., "there has always been strong support for the view [opinion] that life does not begin until live birth. This was the belief of the Stoics." (Strauss Vs. Strauss., 3 So. 2nd 727, 728, 1941) Heraclitus' ideology is the foundation of the Stoics, i.e., of the Marxists, replacing true science (facts and truth, i.e., what is) with "so called science," i.e., "feelings," i.e., opinions (what "ought" to be, in the person's eyes, i.e., perception, i.e., "reasoning," i.e., "reasoning" that is subject to self preservation, i.e., the preservation of lust instead of doing what it right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will.
"The child takes on the characteristic behavior of the group in which he is placed. . . . he reflects the behavior patterns which are set by the adult leader of the group." (Kurt Lewin in Wilbur Brookover, A Sociology of Education) Whether he holds each child accountable to established commands, rules, facts, and truth or makes commands, rules, facts, and truth subject to the children's carnal desires of the 'moment.'
By replacing the traditional teacher (preaching, teaching, discussing, rewarding, chastening, casting out) with a facilitator of 'change,' i.e., a Marxist "educator" (with the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process) the students in the classroom are 'changed,' i.e., are turned into Marxists.
"An examination of the role of education in the revolutionary processes in Hitlerian Germany and Soviet Russia demonstrates that a new controlling group can use the educational system to advantage to bringing about the changes it desires. This illustrates the effectiveness of the educational system in indoctrinating the youth with a desire for the type of society wanted by those in control. . . . To do this they must persist in the maintenance of a new system long enough for controlling interests to be thoroughly indoctrinated in the new social system." (Wilbur Brookover, A Sociology of Education)
"Change in methods of leadership is probably the quickest way to bring about a change in the cultural atmosphere of a group." "Any real change of the culture of a group is, therefore, interwoven with the changes of the power constellation within the group." (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, "frustration and regression: an experiment with young children" in Child Behavior and Development)
"A change in the curriculum is a change in the people concerned—in teachers, in students, in parents ....." "Curriculum change means that the group involved must shift its approval from the old to some new set of reciprocal behavior patterns." "... people involved who were loyal to the older pattern must be helped to transfer their allegiance to the new." "Re-education aims to change the system of values and beliefs of an individual or a group." (Benne)
"... prevent someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space." (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future)
"The major barrier to mutual interpersonal communication is our very natural tendency to judge, to evaluate, to approve or disapprove, the statement of the other person, or the other group." (Rogers)
"When we learn to silence the inner voice that judges yourself and others, there is no limit to what we can accomplish, individually and as part of a team. Absence of judgment makes you more receptive to innovative ideas." (Michael Ray in Maslow, Maslow on Management) When you "silence" God (God's judgment upon you for your sins) in your thoughts you become god (in your mind), making all subject to your carnal thoughts and actions, i.e., lusts—without having mercy.
"During the period of innovation, an environment is invisible. The present is always invisible because the whole field of attention is so saturated with it. It becomes visible only when is has been superseded by a new environment." (Federal Education Grant, Dec. 1969, Behavior Science in Teacher Education—commonly referred to as BSTEP—all Federal Education Grants are subject to this Grant. The book "1984" was a result of it, exposing what is in it, planned control of society.) In the 'moment' of 'change,' where you are trying to make up your mind whether this is a good thing or not, 'change' is taking place, with you becoming aware of it being bad only after it has taken place (now established).
"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 know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "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." 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." "By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Rogers)
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:36 Freedom is not found in your carnal nature, which makes you a slave to the world but in the Son who 'liberates' you from it (individualism, under God).
"Protestantism [the priesthood of all believers, doing your best as unto the Lord, putting no man between you and the Lord, engendering individualism, under God] was the strongest force in the extension of cold rational individualism." (Max Horkheimer, Vernunft and Selbsterhaltung; English. Reasoning and Self Preservation) Freed from "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" you are no longer under the control, i.e., the influence of those "of the world," controlling you through your lusts.
"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you." 2 Peter 2:3 By 'discovering' your lusts of the 'moment' the facilitator of 'change,' offering to "help" you actualize your lusts (thus gaining your trust) is able to use you as natural resource ("human resource") to satisfy his own lusts, discarding you when you no longer serve his purpose, i.e., when you no longer stimulate pleasure in him or you get in his way, (doing to you as you did the father/Father).
"Let no man deceive you with vain words [self 'justifying, i.e., lust 'justifying' words]: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them." Ephesians 5:5-7
"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Titus 3:3-7
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." Colossians 2:8
"I greatly fear that the universities, unless they teach the Holy Scriptures diligently and impress them on the young students, are wide gates to hell. I would advise no one to send his child where the Holy Scriptures are not supreme. Every institution that does not unceasingly pursue the study of God's word becomes corrupt." (Luther's Works: Vol. 1, The Christian in Society: p. 207)
"Perhaps one of the most dramatic events highlighting the need for progress in the affective domain ['liberation' of the student's carnal nature, i.e., lust from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., 'liberation' of the college student from his or her parent's established commands, rules, facts, and truth] was the publication of Jacob's Changing Values in College (1957)." (Book 2: Affective Domain)
"Concerning the changing of circumstances by men, the educator must himself be educated." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach # 3)
All "educators" are certified and schools accredited today based upon their use of "Bloom's Taxonomies" i.e., Marxist curriculum in the classroom. By 1971 over one million of Bloom's "taxonomies" were published for the Communist Chinese education system. (Benjamin Bloom, Forty Year Evaluation)
"Bloom's Taxonomies" are "... a psychological classification system" used "to develop attitudes and values ... which are not shaped by the parents." "There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." "Ordering" "different kinds of affective behavior," i.e., "the range of emotion(s)" "organized into value systems and philosophies of life." "It was the view of the group that educational objectives stated in the behavior form have their counterparts in the behavior of individuals, observable and describable therefore classifiable [true science is "observable and repeatable," i.e., objective, i.e., constant not "observable and describable," i.e., subject to an opinion, i.e., subject to 'change']." "Only those educational programs which can be specified in terms of intended student behaviors can be classified." "What we are classifying is the intended behavior of students—the ways in which individuals are to act, think, or feel as the result of participating in some unit of instruction." "… ordering and relating the different kinds of affective behavior." "… we need to provide the range of emotion from neutrality through mild to strong emotion, probably of a positive, but possibly also of a negative, kind." "… organized into value systems and philosophies of life …" "...many of these changes are produced by association with peers who have less authoritarian points of view, as well as through the impact of a great many courses of study in which the authoritarian pattern is in some ways brought into question while more rational and nonauthoritarian behaviors are emphasized." "The student must feel free to say he disliked _____ and not have to worry about being punished for his reaction." "The affective domain is, in retrospect, a virtual 'Pandora's Box' [a "box" (jar) full of evils, which once opened, can not be closed—once parental authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., fear of judgment, i.e., "the lid" is removed it is difficult if not impossible to put it back on again].' It is in this 'box' that the most influential controls are to be found." "In fact, a large part of what we call 'good teaching' is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives ['liberating' the student's "feelings" from his or her parent's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority system] through challenging the student's fixed beliefs [pressuring the student (out of fear of group rejection) to publically, i.e., in "the group" (for the sake of group approval) question, challenging, disregard, defy, attack, etc., his parents commands, rules, facts, and truth] and getting them to discuss issues [evaluating the world through his carnal desires, i.e., his "lusts," i.e., his "self interests" of the 'moment,' that which he has in common with "the group"]." "... allows the individual [the student] a greater amount of freedom in which to achieve a Weltanschauung [World View]1" (Bloom's "Weltanschauung," as he noted, was that of two Marxists, i.e., "1Cf. Erich Fromm, 1941; T. W. Adorno et al., 1950.") "The affective domain [the student's natural inclination to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (DE) that the world (including "the group") stimulates and hatred toward restraint] contains the forces that determine the nature of an individual's life and ultimately the life of an entire people." (Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 1: Cognitive Domain; David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain)
Erick Fromm wrote: "Personal relations between men have this character of alienation. Hegel and Marx have laid the foundations for the understanding of the problem of alienation." "We are proud that in his conduct of life man has become free from external authorities, which tell him what to do and what not to do." "All that matters is that the opportunity for genuine activity be restored to the individual; that the purposes of society [lust] and of his own [lust] become identical." "... to give up 'God' and to establish a concept of man as a being ... who can feel at home in it [the world] if he achieves union with his fellow man and with nature [his and other's carnal nature and the world that stimulates it]." (Erick Fromm, Escape from Freedom)
"Every form of objectification results in alienation" "Alienation is the experience of ‘estrangement' (Verfremdung) from others, . . ." "Alienation has a long history. Its most radical sense already appears in the biblical expulsion from Eden." "God is thus the anthropological source of alienation . . ." "Alienation will continue so long as the subject engages in an externalization (Entausserung) of his or her subjectivity." (Stephen Eric Bronner, Of Critical Theory and its Theorists) For the Marxist, alienation is the result of prejudice, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth that conflict with, i.e., that get in the way of "the peoples" lusts, i.e., that get in the way of human nature (what they have in common), resulting in people judging, condemning, and dividing from one another based upon who is doing right and who is doing wrong according to the standards they have accepted as "Is."
Theodor Adorno wrote: "Authoritarian submission [humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining, capitulating one's "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will] 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." "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." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) The error in Adorno's "logic" is that Fascism, instead of supporting the father's/Father's authority in the home and in the individual's thoughts and actions, negated it. "Our problem," according to Adorno, i.e., the Marxist is the father's/Father's authority in the children's/"the people's" thoughts, i.e., in the environment directly effecting their actions.
Both Erick Fromm and Theodor Adorno, rejecting the father's/Father's authority made "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., only that which is "of the world" the means to knowing right and wrong behavior. Traditional education bases knowing on being told, comprehending on knowing you will be rewarded for obeying and doing things right and punished/corrected (chastened) for disobeying or doing things wrong (according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth being preached, taught, and discussed), applying on, if you disobey or do wrong, analysis being, as "dad is taking you to the woodshed" you know you need to do what you are told, sustaining the father's/Father's authority in the students thoughts and actions. Benjamin Bloom adding synthesis, i.e., the children uniting as one on what they have in common, i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," thus negating the father's/Father's authority, with the children from then on evaluating their thoughts and actions (aufheben) from their carnal nature—whether they are initiating and sustaining unity, i.e., being 'loyal' to "the group," i.e., 'justifying' lust or inhibiting and blocking it, i.e., remaining loyal to the father/Father. In short in traditional education the children evaluate their thoughts and their actions, i.e., their behavior (and the behavior of other children) from the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., from what they have been taught, i.e., told, separating themselves from children who are doing wrong, sinning, i.e., who, in disobedience are lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating, while in transformational education they evaluate their thoughts and actions, i.e., their behavior (and the behavior of other children) from their "sense experience," i.e., from their lust for pleasure and their hatred toward restraint, i.e., from what they have in common with all the children of the world.
"Words and actions should help to unite, and not divide, the people." (Mao Zedong)
Anyone who comes between the father/Father and his/His children liberates them from the father's/Father's authority, as was done by the master facilitator of 'change' in the garden in Eden (Genesis 3:1-6), making himself the children's authority instead.
". . . any intervention between parent and child tend to produce familial democracy [replacing discussion, which retains the father's/Father's authority with dialogue, which 'justifies' the child's carnal nature 'liberates' the child from the parent's authority, i.e., from having to do right and not wrong according to the parent's (the father's/Father's) established commands, rules, facts, and truth] regardless of its intent." "The consequences of family democratization take a long time to make themselves felt—but it would be difficult to reverse the process once begun. … once the parent can in any way imagine his own orientation to be a possible liability to the child in the world approaching." "… Once uncertainty is created in the parent how best to prepare the child for the future, the authoritarian family is moribund [the father's/Father's authority is negated in the child's thoughts, directly effecting his or her actions—questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking the father's/Father's authority for getting in the way, doing so without having a guilty conscience], regardless of whatever countermeasures may be taken." "The state, by its very interference in the life of its citizens, must necessarily undermine a parental authority which it attempts to restore." "For however much the state or community may wish to inculcate obedience and submission in the child, its intervention betrays a lack of confidence in the only objects from whom a small child can learn authoritarian submission." (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)
Replacing facts and truth (I KNOW) with theory and opinion (I think) makes everything relative, i.e., subject to 'change.'
"Certainly the Taxonomy was unproved at the time it was developed and may well be 'unprovable.'" (Benjamin Bloom, Forty Year Evaluation)
"It has been pointed out that we are attempting to classify phenomena which could not be observed or manipulated in the same concrete form as the phenomena of such fields as the physical and biological sciences." (Book 1: Cognitive Domain)
"Whether or not the classification scheme presented in Handbook I: Cognitive Domain is a true taxonomy is still far from clear." (Book 2: Affective Domain)
Benjamin Bloom dedicated his first Taxonomy to Ralph Tyler, who's student Thomas Kuhn (quoting Max Planck) wrote
"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it." (Thomas Kuhn, The Structure of Scientific Revolution) As Irvin Yalom, in his book Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy pointed out, "The current generation is the first in the history of the world which has nothing to learn from grandparents." Kuhn continued: "If a paradigm [a 'change' in culture, from Patriarch to Heresiarch] is ever to triumph it must gain some first supporters, men who will develop it to the point where hardheaded arguments can be produced and multiplied" which eventuates "an increasing shift in the distribution of professional allegiances" whereupon "the man who continues to resist after his whole profession has been converted is ipso facto ceased to be a scientist." "Thomas S Kuhn spent the year 1958-1959 at the Center for Advanced Studies in the Behavior Sciences, directed by Ralph Tyler, where he finalized his 'paradigm shift' concept of 'Pre- and Post-paradigm periods.'" "Kuhn admitted problems with the schemata of his socio-psychological theory yet continued to urge its application into the scientific fields of astronomy, physics, chemistry, and biology [which found its way into the classroom]." (Kuhn)
All Tyler, Bloom, Kuhn, et al. did was 'shift' communication in the lab (classroom) from discussion, which holds everyone accountable to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., to limits and measures to dialogue, which makes the experiment itself (opinion) the outcome, putting the theory into practice (praxis), silencing any true scientist who (using established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., limits and measures, i.e., "rule of law") questions and/or rejects the outcome, i.e., the theory.
"No hypothesis in this body of writings [Human Relations In Curriculum Change] has been fully tested. Nor will it be tested fully until it has been used widely in thoughtful experimentation with actual social changes. The school offers an important potential laboratory for the development of a truly experimental social science. Experimentally minded school workers can develop and improve the hypotheses suggested in these readings as they put them to the test in planning and evaluating changes in the school program." "Experiments on groups and leadership training suggest the following conclusions: (a) The change of a group atmosphere from autocracy or laissez faire to democracy through a democratic leader amounts to a re-education of the followers toward 'democratic followership.'" "(b) The experiments show that this shift in roles cannot be accomplished by a 'hands off' policy. To apply the principle of "individualistic freedom" merely leads to chaos. Sometimes people must rather forcefully be made to see what democratic responsibility toward the group as a whole means." "It is true that people cannot be trained for democracy by autocratic methods. But it is equally true that to be able to change a group atmosphere toward democracy the democratic leader has to be in power and has to use his power for active re-education [once in power the facilitator of 'change' will do whatever it takes to remain in power, what Patrick Henry. warned us about]. The more the group members become converted to democracy and learn to play the roles of democracy as followers or leaders, the more can the power of the democratic leader shift to other ends than converting the group members." "(c) ... lecture and propaganda do not suffice to bring about the necessary change. Essential as they are, they will be effective only if combined with a change in the power relations and leadership of the group. For larger groups, this means that a hierarchy of leaders has to be trained which reaches out into all essential subparts of the group. Hitler himself has obviously followed very carefully such a procedure. The democratic reversal of this procedure, although different in many respects, will have to be as thorough and as solidly based on group organization." (Benne)
The role of the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the psychotherapist (making the children, i.e., the children's carnal nature the foundation from which to know right from wrong behavior) is to 'liberate' children from the father's/Father's authority, so they (the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the psychotherapist) can lust without having a guilty conscience, i.e., with the children's affirmation and support.
"Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself, 'What would my parents want me to do?' During the process of therapy the individual come to ask himself, 'What does it mean to me?'" (Rogers)
"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 for self" and the world only]." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
"Without exception, [children] enter group therapy [the "group grade" classroom] with the history of a highly unsatisfactory experience in their first and most important group—their primary family [the traditional home with parents telling them what they can and can not do]." "What better way to help [the child] recapture the past than to allow him to re-experience and reenact ancient feelings [resentment, hostility] toward parents in his current relationship to the therapist [the facilitator of 'change]? The [facilitator of 'change'] is the living personification of all parental images [takes the place of the parent]. Group [facilitators] refuse to fill the traditional authority role: they do not lead in the ordinary manner, they do not provide answers and solutions [teach right from wrong from established commands, rules, facts, and truth], they urge the group [the children] to explore and to employ its own resources [to dialogue their "feelings," i.e., their desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment' in the "light" of the current situation, i.e., their desire for "the group" approval (affirmation)]. The group [children] must feel free to confront the [the facilitator of 'change'], who must not only permit, but encourage, such confrontation [rebellion and anarchy]. He [the child] reenacts early family scripts in the group and, if therapy [brainwashing—washing respect for and fear of the father's/Father's authority from the child's brain (thoughts) ] is successful, is able to experiment with new behavior, to break free from the locked family role [submitting to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will] he once occupied. … the patient [the child] changes the past by reconstituting it ['creating' a "new" world order from his "ought," i.e., a world "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the current situation and/or people are stimulating, i.e., a world void of the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience which the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after pleasure in disobedience]." (Yalom)
Changing the classroom environment in order to 'change' the student, i.e., in order to wash the father's/Father's authority from the students mind (thoughts), directly effecting his actions (behavior).
"To create effectively a new set of attitudes and values, the individual must undergo great reorganization of his personal beliefs and attitudes and he must be involved in an environment which in many ways is separated from the previous environment in which he was developed.... many of these changes are produced by association with peers who have less authoritarian points of view, as well as through the impact of a great many courses of study in which the authoritarian pattern is in some ways brought into question while more rational and nonauthoritarian behaviors are emphasized." "The effectiveness of this new set of environmental conditions is probably related to the extent to which the students are 'isolated' from the home during this period of time." "… objectives can best be attained where the individual is separated from earlier environmental conditions and when he is in association with a group of peers who are changing in much the same direction and who thus tend to reinforce each other."* (Book 2: Affective Domain)
The following section is from a book explaining how the Communist Chinese brainwash their victims through the use of "Lewinian change theory," which is being used in the "group grade," facilitated, "Bloom's Taxonomy" classroom. Any one having participated in the "group grade" classroom can readily identify the steps of brainwashing described below.
"The manner in which the prisoner came to be influenced to accept the Communist's definition of his guilt can best be described by distinguishing two broad phases—(1) a process of 'unfreezing,' in which the prisoner's physical resistance, social and emotional supports, self-image and sense of integrity, and basic values and personality were undermined, thereby creating a state of 'readiness' to be influence; and (2) a process of 'change,' in which the prisoner discovered how the adoption of 'the people's standpoint' and a reevaluation of himself from this perspective would provide him with a solution to the problems created by the prison pressure."
"Most were put into a cell containing several who were further along in reforming themselves and who saw it as their primary duty to 'help' their most backward member to see the truth about himself in order that the whole cell might advance. Each such cell had a leader who was in close contact with the authorities for purposes of reporting on the cell's progress and getting advice on how to handle the Western member . . . the environment undermined the (clients) self-image."
". . . Once this process of self of self re-evaluation began, the (client) received all kinds of help and support from the cell mates and once again was able to enter into meaningful emotional relationships with others." (Interpersonal Dynamics: Essays in Readings on Human Interaction, ed. Warren G. Bennis, Edgar H. Schein, David E. Berlew, and Fred I. Steele)
"If the goal is a group goal rather than individual goals of the members, then the introduction of content into the group makes the group almost certain to be a brainwashing group." (Dr. Shofstall; Dr. William Coulson, "Encounter Groups and Brainwashing" Notre Dame Journal of Education)
The "educator" (the facilitator of 'change') does not have to tell the students to question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack their parent's authority when they get home from school, if they were not doing that already (telling them would be "old school," maintaining the "old" world order of being told even if it was done for the 'purpose' of 'change,' i.e., for the 'purpose' of creating a "new" world order), all they have to do is use a curriculum in the classroom that "encourages," i.e., pressures the students to participate in the process of 'change,' i.e., into dialoguing their opinions to a consensus, 'justifying' their carnal nature, i.e., "lust" over and therefore against their parent's authority. Being told to be "positive" (supportive of the other students carnal nature) and not "negative" (judging them by their parent's standards) pressures students to 'justify' their and the other students love of pleasure and hate of restrain, doing so in order to be approved, i.e., affirmed by "the group," resulting in "the group" labeling those students who, holding onto their parent's standards, i.e., refusing to participate in the process of 'change' or fighting against it as being "negative," divisive, hateful, intolerant, maladjusted, unadaptable to 'change,' resisters of 'change,' not "team players," lower order thinkers, in denial, phobic, prejudiced, judgmental, racist, fascist, dictators, anti-social, etc., i.e., "hurting" people's "feelings" resulting in "the group" rejecting them—the student's natural desire for approval and fear of rejection forces him to participate. The same outcome applies to all adults, in any profession who participate in the process. Once you are 'labeled,' you are 'labeled' for life. In the soviet union, once you were 'labeled' "psychological," no matter how important you were in the past, your life was over, your career was done.
"To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit;" (Brown)
"... the 'original sin' must be committed again: 'We must again eat from the tree of knowledge in order to fall back into the state of innocence.'" (Marcuse)
"This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish." James 3:15
"In the process of history man gives birth to himself. He becomes what he potentially is, and he attains what the serpent—the symbol of wisdom and rebellion—promised, and what the patriarchal, jealous God of Adam did not wish: that man would become like God himself." (Erick Fromm, You Shall Be As Gods)
"Freud noted that patricide [hatred toward the father's/Father's authority] and incest [lust for pleasure] are part of man's deepest nature." (Yalom)
Leave the father's/Father's authority (God) out of your thoughts and your actions will become only that which is of the world—dying in your sins, spending eternity in the lake of fire that is never quenched, prepared for the master facilitator of 'change' and all who followed after him, instead of the Lord.
"For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts." Psalms 10:3, 4
"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
"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-
"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." Hebrews 10:23-31 If you leave the rest of the verses out, following "Not forsaking the assembling ourselves together," tolerating unrighteousness and not condemned sin in the fellowship you are deceived, deceiving others. Fellowship is around the Word (the preaching, teaching, and discussing of the Word, with the Word having the final say), relationship is around the flesh (the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, with "the groups" feelings, affirmation having the final say). This is why you get that "deer in the headlight look" from people when you share the truth with them, who are caught between the two, knowing you are right but wanting to sustain the relationship that 'justifies' their lusts.
"Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD. Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people? Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait." Jeremiah 9:1-8
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." 1 Timothy 3:13 The role of the facilitator of 'change' is to seduce, deceive, and manipulate all who come before him into lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating in order to 'justify,' i.e., affirm his self, i.e., his lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating so he can lust without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without having a fear of judgment, i.e., with impunity (in his mind).
"By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:6
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:11
"You make me feel wicked. You make me feel like I'm doing something wicked." Response from a kindergarten teacher (a relative) after only two minutes into my explaining "Bloom's Taxonomies" to her. WOW!!! I was not ready for that response (much less that soon). I was just getting started. Needless to say she walked away, not wanting to hear any more, i.e., to repent and turn from her wicked ways. This is why I call "Bloom's Taxonomies" secularized Satanism, intellectualized witch craft, all disguised as academics, where the "educator" becomes the children's parent, usurping their parent's authority.
"Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." Isaiah 55:7
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," "open ended, non-directed," 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, i.e., no established aka absolute command, rule, facts, or truth to be accepted as is, by faith and obeyed; there is only the persons carnal desires, i.e., lusts of the past and the present being verbally expressed and 'justified'), 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)—as predators, charlatans, pimps, pedophiles, 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., can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, 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." Jeremiah 6:16
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, capitulate your "self" (your lusts) 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
