Intolerance Vs. Tolerance.
(Personal note.)

Dean Gotcher

"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

"Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." Matthew 5:48

God is not tolerant. He is patient (that we might repent—"for His mercy endureth for ever") but he is no tolerant. Being "tolerant of ambiguity" is the praxis of 'justifying' "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride of life," making all that "is" subject to the carnal nature of the child and the world that stimulates it/him, turning good (only God is good) into evil and evil (lust) into good, worshiping the creation instead of the creator.

"The philosophy of praxis is the absolute secularization of thought, an absolute humanism of history." (Antonio Gramsci, Selections from the Prison Notebooks)

"... the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws.'" (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9

Your heart is "deceitful ("deceitful above all things") thinking pleasure, i.e., "lust" (dopamine emancipation) is the 'purpose' of life instead of doing the father's/Father's will, making you wicked ("desperately wicked") in your effort to negate the father's/Father's authority that gets in your way. You can not see your heart as being wicked because your "lust" for pleasure (your "lust" for "lust," i.e., dopamine emancipation) is standing in the way. The child is not in love with the toy. He is in love with the dopamine emancipation (pleasure) that the toy (the world) stimulates, throwing the toy away when it no longer brings him pleasure, gets in the way of pleasure, or something (someone) more pleasurable comes his way, doing to it what you did to God, i.e., the Father for getting in your way. The flesh is subject to ('driven' by) the pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) that the the toy (the world) stimulates, called "the lust of the flesh." The eyes look into the environment (the world) to locate the source of pleasure (dopamine emancipation) that the toy (the world) stimulates, which stimulates dopamine emancipation (pleasure) in itself (anticipation), called "the lust of the eyes." The child then seeks (Reasons) to control the environment (the toy) in order to continue experiencing the pleasure (dopamine emancipation) that the toy stimulates, hating anyone who gets in the way, called "the pride of life." When you tolerate unrighteousness, i.e., lust, i.e., pleasure (dopamine emancipation), unrighteousness, i.e., self, i.e., self interest becomes the "norm," making the father's/Father's authority, i.e., intolerance, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth wrong, making your self, i.e., your lusts God.

"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')

"Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure." (Norman O. BrownLife Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

When you make "enjoying the present," i.e., lust, i.e., self interest, that which is stimulated by the world "good," you make the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience it engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating evil.

"Once the earthly family [where children have 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, Jesus Christ humbled, denied, died to, controlled, disciplined, capitulated his self in order to do the Father's will], the former must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negatedin theory and in practice [in the children's thoughts, directly effecting their actions, i.e., their behavior toward their self, others, the world, and authority]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)

"... 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 Herbert MarcuseEros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud) 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, 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.

"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)

Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, et al. made the child's carnal nature, i.e., lust , i.e., what all men (and children have in common) the standard for right (good) and the father's/Father's authority wrong (evil), thus engendering intolerance toward righteousness, i.e., toward the Father (the Father's authority) and His Son (and anyone believing in them), 'justifying' the negation of anyone who gets in their way, i.e., in the way of lust (dopamine emancipation), including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous. Discussion retains the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth (limits and measures), thus the father/Father, i.e., the commands, rules, facts, and truth have the final say. Dialogue on the other hand retains the child's carnal nature, i.e., the child's natural inclination to lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, as well as his hatred toward restraint. Dialogue is thus used by the child to 'justify' his self, i.e., his lusts within his self and before others. This is why those "of and for self," i.e., "of and for the world," i.e., "of and for lust" (when it comes to right and wrong behavior) move communication away from discussion (no tolerance, i.e., right is right and wrong is wrong) toward dialogue (tolerance, i.e., "Everyone is entitled to their opinion") so they can lust after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience—without being held accountable for their carnal thoughts and actions.

"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12

"Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment." Ecclesiastes 11:9

Since desire (lust) for approval (affirmation) from others (human relationship) is such a deep part of our nature it is natural for us to compromise, i.e., to be tolerant of unrighteousness when it comes to right and wrong behavior. This is why we tend to move to dialogue (toward that which is "positive" to, i.e., tolerant of the flesh, i.e., tolerant of our lusts) and away from discussion (away from that which is "negative," i.e., intolerant of the flesh, i.e., intolerant of our lust) when want to "build relationship" with others we lust after (having lust to gain from them and/or from the situation).

"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen HabermasKnowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory)

The basis of common-ism is lust, i.e., what we all have in common.

"Group members must be able to synthesize individual 'felt' needs [lusts] with common group 'felt' needs [lusts]." (Warren BennisThe Temporary Society)

In other words, only when we unite on that which we have in common with one another, i.e., our lust for pleasure as well as our lust for affirmation (approval from one another) can we become at-one-with the world—requiring us to be "tolerant of ambiguity" (which unites us on lust) and "intolerant of absolutes" (which divides us on right and wrong, according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth).

"Only when the immediate interests [lusts] are integrated into a total view and related to the final goal of the process [overthrow of all that stands in the way of lust] do they become revolutionary," (Lukács)

"The revolution that must occur is the reaction of suppressed life, which will visit the causality of fate upon the rulers." (Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest)

As the father's/Father's authority engenders a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for lusting after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, lust for pleasure always engenders hatred toward restraint, i.e., hatred (intolerance) toward the father/Father and his/His authority. All the educator, i.e., the facilitator of 'change' has to do is create an environment which is tolerant of ambiguity, where children can dialogue their opinions (their carnal feelings and thoughts, i.e., their lusts) to a consensus (to a feeling of oneness) regarding right and wrong behavior—without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without fear of judgment, i.e., without the father's/Father's authority being present—and the children will automatically turn against the father/Father and his/His authority, i.e., become intolerant of intolerance, i.e., intolerant of righteousness.

"Not feeling at home in the sinful world [a world where people accuse me (Karl Marx) of being a sinner]. Critical Criticism must set [dialogue sets] up a sinful world in its own home." "Critical Criticism [dialogueis a spiritualistic lord, pure spontaneity, actus purus, intolerant of any influence from without." (Karl Marx, The Holy Family)

"I am nothing and I should be everything" (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')

In dialogue ("I feel" and "I think"), when it comes to right and wrong behavior we establish our self as God, determining right and wrong behavior according to our carnal nature, i.e., our lusts of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, 'justifying' our hatred toward restraint, i.e., our hatred toward the father's/Father's authority—as was done by the master facilitator who "helped" two "children" (in a garden in Eden) 'justify' their self, i.e., their lusts before one another, establishing their self, i.e., their lusts, i.e., their self interests over and therefore against the "Father's" authority, i.e., over and therefore against doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., over and therefore against doing the "Father's" will. A little lust, i.e., tolerance of ambiguity, i.e., tolerance of unrighteousness (intolerance of absolutes/righteousness), like yeast, can go a long ways, i.e., can take over everything.

"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)

"Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:5-6

"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

"He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." 1 John 2:22

"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, 4

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), 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, pedophilesseducing, 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., "lust" 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. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken." Jeremiah 6:16, 17

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 your "self" 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
