Marxism And Psychology.
Why Marxists And Psychologists Are Hateful Toward Believers.
(Personal note.)

"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

"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

"Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, 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 5:19, 30; 12:47-50

"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

"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

"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

Marxism and psychology establish the child's carnal nature, i.e., "human nature," i.e., "self interest," i.e., "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride of life" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., over and therefore against having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (capitulate) your "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts and truth, i.e., over and therefore against having to do the father's/Father's will, 'justifying' the negation of the father's/Father's authority, thereby negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating in the process. You can only have ('justify') one or the other, i.e., the child's carnal nature, i.e., "lust" or the father's/Father's authority. You can not have it both ways.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24

"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?" Romans 6:16

"Do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10

Marxism and psychology make "self," i.e., "lust," i.e., "self interest" the 'drive' and the augmentation of "self," i.e., of "lust," i.e., of "self interest" the 'purpose' of life, making hatred toward the father/Father, i.e., the believer the "norm." Pressured to chose between psychology, i.e., your carnal desires, i.e., your "lusts," i.e., your "self interest" and the father/Father, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., to doing the father's/Father's will your hatred toward doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., your hatred toward the believer (who insists you do the father's/Father's will) will become manifest. Marxism and psychology are antithetical to faith in the father/Father, i.e., to doing the father's/Father's will.

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4

The father's/Father's authority, i.e., having faith in the father/Father is the basis of the traditional home ("middle-class" family) and the gospel, which requires the children/men to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (capitulate) their "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's/Father's will. Instead of killing the father/Father outright, as traditional Marxists do, by adding psychology, i.e., through dialogue "helping" the father "build relationship" with his "self," his wife, his children, and others, thus 'justifying' (not judging) his and their "lusts," the father automatically negates (abdicates) his God given authority (to doing the Father's will) to the world, i.e., to the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the psychologists, i.e., the Marxist—for the sake of initiating and/or sustaining human relationship (humanism).

"'Capital' [stored up pleasure, i.e., dopamine]… is, according to Marx, 'not a thing but a social relation [a "top-down" order] between persons mediated through things.' 'These relations,' Marx states, 'are not those between one individual and another ["feelings" based], but between worker and capitalist, tenant and landlord [children and their parents], etc.,. Eliminate these relations [the "top-down" order] and you abolish the whole of society; …… a scientifically acceptable solution does exist ["behavior 'science,'" which, through the use of dialogue 'justifies,' i.e., affirms the children's natural inclination to "lust" after pleasure and hate restraint, i.e., establishes the children's carnal nature over and therefore against their parent's authority, 'liberating' the children (the facilitator of 'change') 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—without fear of losing financial support for being their "self"]… For to accept that solution [discovering common ground through dialogue], even in theory, would be tantamount to observing society from a class standpoint [from the children's perspective, i.e., "lust"] other than that of the bourgeoisie [from the parent's perspective, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth]. And no class can do that-unless it is willing to abdicate its power freely [when parents observe the world, including their authority from their children's perspective, they abdicate their authority to their children's "feelings," i.e., to their children's carnal desires, i.e., to their children's "lusts," negating their authority—you do not have to kill the father that way, he just negate themselves]." (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)

The idea being, instead of fighting against the family (the father)/the "church" (the Father) join it instead, i.e., "help" it (through dialogue, i.e., the language of the world) grow itself, i.e., "help" it built relationship with its "self" and the world around it. (Fellowship is around doctrine, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth. Relationship is around "feelings," i.e., carnal desires of the 'moment.') There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue. In dialogue there is only the children's/man's carnal desires of the 'moment' that the world stimulates. By being tolerant (non-judgmental) of "human nature," i.e., of "lust," i.e., of unrighteousness, intolerance of (hatred toward) the father's/Father's authority, i.e., hatred toward righteousness is made manifest and 'justified.' If the father controls the money (stored up pleasure) then doing right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth becomes the issue, i.e., the children must obey or be corrected, reproved, chastened, or grounded (or cast out, i.e., no longer in the will). If the children (under the influence/control of the facilitator of 'change') control the money then the children's carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating becomes the issue, i.e., the father's authority is negated. Then whatever (whoever) engenders and/or 'justifies' "lust" is real or actual, i.e., is of the world, i.e., is of worth (is rational, i.e., is reasonable), i.e., is to be encouraged, followed, supported, and defended and whatever (whoever) engenders "hate" (gets in the way of pleasure, i.e., inhibits or blocks "lust") is not real or action, i.e., is not of the world, i.e., is of no worth (is irrational, i.e., is unreasonable), i.e., is to be negated.

"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') In other words, according to Karl Marx: "Lust 'reconciles'" man to "the world," 'justifying' the negation of the father's/Father's authority that inhibits or blocks "lust."

"Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure." "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." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History) In other words, according to Sigmund Freud: "Lust' is the foundation" for determining right and wrong behavior, right being that which stimulates, 'justifies,' and/or satisfies "lust," wrong being that which inhibits or blocks the stimulation of, condemns, and/or prevents the fulfillment of "lust," 'justifying' the negation of the father's/Father's authority that inhibits or blocks "lust."

According to Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the Patriarchal paradigm stands in the way of "human nature" ("lust"), i.e., the father's/Father's authority inhibits or blocks (prevents) children/men from becoming at-one-with their "self" and the world, i.e., "self actualized" i.e., the father's/Father's authority prevents the facilitator of 'change' (the Marxist/the psychologist) from taking control of the children and the world (using them for their own pleasure and gain). Therefore the father's/Father's authority must be negated in the children's/men's thoughts as well as in their actions in order (as in "new" world order) for them to become "normal," i.e., to become "of the world" only (their "mental health," i.e., social worth depends upon it—says the Marxist/the psychologist/the facilitator of 'change').

"Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the Holy family, the former must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4) In other words, according to Karl Marx, "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 same system (paradigm, i.e., way of thinking) as "the Holy family," where the Son and all following Him have to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (capitulate) their "self" in order to do the Father's will, the earthly father's authority, i.e., the traditional, "middle-class" family must be destroyed (negated) in the children's thoughts and in their actions.

"... 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." "'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 father no longer exercises his authority in his home or in his business]." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud) In other words, according to Sigmund Freud, as long as the father negates his authority in the home the children do not have to "kill and devour" him, i.e., negate his authority, i.e. he did it to himself, i.e., he "neutered" himself.

"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" 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") is standing in the way. It is in your dialogue, with your "self" and with others you express your "lusts" and your hate, 'justifying' them. Until you recognize the wickedness of your heart you can not see the deceitfulness of your heart, i.e., your being deceived and deceiving others so you can enjoy the "lusts" of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, which includes your "lust" for others approval, i.e., their affirmation

"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

Instead of the prodigal son coming to his senses, humbling himself, returning home, honoring his father's authority—learning that his inheritance was not his father's money but his father's love for him—for Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud he joins with his "friends," returns home, joins with the other children, and kills and eats the father, i.e., negates the father's authority in the children's thoughts and actions so the father's authority does not reappear in the future—taking all that was the father's, using it for their own pleasures, i.e., to satisfy their "lusts" without the father's restraints (accountability for their thoughts and actions, i.e., a guilty conscience) getting in the way.

"Authoritarian submission [humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining "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) Adorno' "problem" was how to 'liberate' children from parental authority, man from God's authority, mankind from Nationalism aka Fascism, etc., so they can be(come) their "self," i.e., "actualize" their "self," no longer seeing their "self" as being subject to a higher authority other than to their carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment' and those 'justifying' it/them. The error in Adorno's "logic" is that all forms of socialism, Fascism included must negate the father's/Father's authority in order to rule over "the people." By the use of generalization, "linking" the father's authority, i.e., "rule of law" to "prejudice," i.e., to established commands, rules, facts, and truth that get in the way of "human nature," i.e., that inhibit or block "lust," the father's/Father's authority, i.e., having to do the father's/Father's will, i.e., "rule of law" is 'labeled' as being "racist," i.e., "systemic racism."

"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 and of his own become identical." (Erich Fromm, Escape from Freedom)

"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

Instead of starting with the father/Father, i.e., focusing upon the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, accepting them as is (which keeps the father's/Father's authority in place), Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud (in concord with Georg Hegel) focused upon the child's "feelings," making "lust," i.e., "human nature," i.e., "self interest," i.e., "sense experience" the standard for (the 'drive' and 'purpose' of) life. If you make the child's "feelings" the thesis then the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth that get in the way of the child's "feelings" automatically becomes the antithesis 'justifying' the negation of the father's/Father's authority in order to arrive at a synthesis where all children can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without fear of judgment (which comes from the father/Father and his/His authority).

"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)

Marxism and psychology are different in that one kills the body (focuses upon killing the father/Father so all can "lust") while the other kills the soul (focuses upon 'justifying' "lust," negating the father's/Father's authority in the children's thoughts as well). This is the difference between a "violent" revolution (physical force) and a "velvet" revolution (social force) which always ends up being emotionally and physically violent toward those who resist, i.e., who refuse to participate, i.e., who continue to hold to the father's/Father's authority in their life.

"Using social-environmental forces to change the parent's behavior toward the child." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality)

Despite Marxism and psychology having the same 'drive' and 'purpose,' i.e., the negation of the father's/Father's authority it is psychology that negates the guilty conscience (that the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating) so "the people," i.e., the Marxist-psychologist can remove (negate) anyone who gets in their, i.e., his way, including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous with impunity, i.e., with "the peoples," i.e., the Marxist-psychologists approval, i.e., affirmation.

"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. The facilitator of 'change' is simply a Marxist under cover of psychology, "helping" children/men 'liberate' their "self" (and the world) from the father's/Father's authority system.

All children are "philosophers," 1) dissatisfied with how the world "Is," where they, having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (capitulate) their "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth are subject to their parent's authority, not being able to do what they want when they want, i.e., missing out on pleasure (the opportunities of the 'moment'), 2) thinking (dialoguing with their "self") how the world "Ought" to be, where they can do what they want, when they want, and 3) imagining how it "Can" be once they grow up and are on their own, "doing what they want when they want." The "problem," according to Karl Marx, et, al, is that once children grow up and become parents themselves, i.e., have children of their own they tell (force) their children to do right and not wrong according to their established commands, rules, facts, and truth, telling them what they can and can not do, getting in their way, i.e., preventing them from "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, i.e., preventing them from being (becoming) their "self," i.e., preventing 'change.' The same behavior appears when they own property or run a business, "forcing" those working for them to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (capitulate) their "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to their established commands, rules, facts, and truth, firing those who do wrong, disobey, sin.

"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)

"The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child 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) Kurt Lewin, in two sentences, explains the origin of the guilty conscience (what he calls a "negative valence")—as being engendered by the father's/Father's authority, i.e., "an induced field of force of an adult"—and how it can be negated—by simply removing (negating) the father's/Father's authority (fear of judgment for one's thoughts) in an environment determining right and wrong behavior. A "positive" environment is void of 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' that the world is stimulating. A "negative" environment is under the influence of the father's/Father's authority, engendering a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating.

It is the "problem" of the guilty conscience (which Karl Marx was concerned about but was not able to resolve) where Sigmund Freud, i.e., psychology comes in.

"As the Frankfurt School 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) Theodor Adorno and Erich Fromm (quoted above, and referenced below) were members of the "Frankfurt School."

"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory) Dialogue, i.e., dialectic 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through your "feelings," i.e., from/through your "sense experience," i.e., from/through your "lusts") is the means to 'liberation' from the father's/Father's authority, where "self," i.e., "lust" is 'justified' before other. Dialogue establishes your identity in the creation, i.e., in the world, i.e., in "I feel" and "I think" instead of in the creator, i.e., in the father/Father, i.e., in "I know" because dad said so ("Because the teacher/the Bible/God says so"/"It is written").

"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. In a discussion you must suspend, as upon a cross your carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., you must humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (capitulate) your "self" in order to hear and receive the truth. In a discussion there is a guilty conscience, i.e., fear of doing wrong or being wrong.

"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. In dialogue you must suspend, as upon a cross any command, rule, fact, or truth that inhibits or blocks (prevents) dialogue, so the other person can sharing their "feelings," i.e., their carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment and resentment toward restraint without fear of being judged, put down, rejected, condemned, or cast out. In dialogue there is no guilty conscience for doing or being wrong since there is no "wrong" in dialogue, since it is only an opinion.

In dialogue, unlike in a discussion (where the father/Father has the final say), there is no father's/Father's authority. There is only the carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment,' i.e., "self interests" of the person being expressed. The same is true in an opinion and in the consensus process. It is in dialogue with your "self" and with others where you 'justify' your carnal desires of the 'moment' that the world is stimulating as well as your dissatisfactions with whoever is getting in the way. "Self," i.e., "self interest," i.e., "lust," as well as hatred toward restraint, 'justified' (affirmed) by others is not only intoxicating, it is addictive and possessive as well.

"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 to dialogue, i.e., to share his "feelings," i.e., his carnal desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment' with others (that he is internally, i.e., privately thinking about)] is particularly important, for here may lie the individual's potential [for 'change,' i.e., to become of and for his "self" and the world only'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority]." (Adorno)

"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)

According to Karl Marx, et al., it is the child's natural inclination to hate the father's/Father's authority (what he calls "Critical Criticism"), i.e., to be "intolerant of any influence from without"—which gets in the way of his natural inclination, i.e., impulse and urge to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates—having to set up "a sinful world" in his own home (in his dialogue with his "self") in order to preserve, i.e., to be his "self." Sigmund Freud had the same idea, calling "lust" "Eros," making "Eros," i.e., "lust" the "norm," 'justifying' hatred toward the father/Father for getting in the way of "human nature," i.e., "lust." The only "problem" was the child is to weak by himself to kill the father (to disregard the father's authority), fearing punishment, i.e., death for disobeying. He needed "help" from outside as well as from his "siblings," i.e., the other children—thus the facilitated classroom and the "group grade." And you thought the "group grade" was just to teach students how to get along with one another while working on a group project. In truth (fact) the "group grade" is all about creating tolerance toward "human nature" ("lust"), i.e., toward unrighteousness, i.e., intolerance toward the father's/Father's authority, i.e., toward righteousness in the next generation of citizens.

"Group members must be able to synthesize individual 'felt' needs with common group 'felt' needs." (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society)

"Only when the immediate interests are integrated into a total view and related to the final goal of the process do they become revolutionary," (Lukács)

"(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)

"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." "Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity in the face of apparent group unanimity." (Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)

"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?'" (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)

"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, subject to their desire for "the groups" 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., having to do 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 "self," i.e., his "Ought," i.e., a world "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the current situation and/or people are stimulating without having a guilty conscience which the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the current situation and/or people are stimulating]." (Yalom)

"The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious [i.e., in the child's carnal nature, i.e., in the child's impulses and urges which are being "repressed" by the father's/Father's authority, i.e., from having to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth]; the foundation has to be recovered [i.e., the child's carnal nature must be 'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority if the child is to become his "self" again (as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life, i.e., of and for the world only)]." "The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination [the father's/Father's authority]." "Freud, Hegel, ... are, like Marx, compelled to postulate external domination and its assertion by force in order to explain repression." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

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

"The Communist Manifesto makes the point that the bourgeoisie [the traditional, "middle-class" family, with parents requiring their children to honor their authority, doing right and not wrong according to their standards] produces its own grave-diggers [children, dissatisfied with their parent's authority, 'justifying' their "self" before one another, killing their parents (at least not caring what happens to them) without having a guilty conscience)].'" (Lukács)

"The whole system of Marxism stands and falls with the principle that revolution is the product of a point of view in which the category of totality [what "the group" thinks] is dominant." (Lukács) This is why the "Democratic" party is so unified in its defiance to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., "rule of law." To be outside "the group" makes you their enemy, i.e., subject to their wrath ("eradication").

"There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain)

All "educators" are certified and schools accredited based upon their use of "Bloom's Taxonomies" (Marxist curriculum) in the classroom. Over one million of the "taxonomies" were printed for the Communist Chinese education system by 1971. (Benjamin Bloom, Forty Year Evaluation) The use of "Bloom's Taxonomies" in the classroom is Mao's long march across America, begun in earnest in the 50's and 60's.

"Bloom's Taxonomy" Cognitive Domain
(Start from the bottom of the chart and work up. This is not how Bloom explains it but instead explains how he is using his "taxonomy" to 'change' the students way of thinking. The top two steps, synthesis and evaluation are his desired outcome (his objective), where "knowing" is based upon the student's "feelings," i.e., his "sense experiences" (making all things material) not upon established commands, rules, facts, and truth that he has been taught—when it comes to attitude and value making him Godless, i.e., god in his "self.")
"Self" 'justification.' "Reality" is only what the children have in common with one another, i.e., their "feelings." If it is not beneficial to their "feelings" (to "lust") it has no meaning, i.e., has no value, i.e., is of no worth. The father's authority is Negated. "Knowing" is now only from "sense experience," i.e., from the children's "feelings" ("lusts") of the 'moment.' "Make me 'feel' good (like God, only God is good) and you are right (you are of worth)." "Hurt my 'feelings' and you are wrong (you are of no worth)." Evaluation
No accountability other than to nature. Truth is "subjective," i.e., subject to the children's "feelings." Negates being "judgmental." Negates chastening for being wrong—for the sake of group harmony (consensus), i.e., for the sake of a "feeling" of "oneness." Synthesis
By adding the children's "affective domain," i.e., "lust" to the curriculum, chastening, i.e., the father's authority for disobeying or doing wrong, i.e., KNOWING from being told is negated. Having rejected persuasion, i.e., established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's authority that gets in the way of their carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment,' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating, children become subject to seduction, deception, manipulation., i.e., to the facilitator of 'change' and "the group." 'Loyalty' to "the group" (and the facilitator of 'change'), i.e., to "lust" negates 'loyalty' to the father, i.e., negates having to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., negates KNOWING from being told. Since the soul KNOWS from being told and the flesh "knows" from "sense experience" the soul is replaced by the flesh as the source of knowing right from wrong.
Chastening. Being held accountable for disobeying or doing wrong. Chastening restores the father's authority. The child KNOWS by being told. Analysis
Disobey. As a result of the child's natural inclination to "lust." Application
Accountability. The father's authority to chasten the child for doing wrong or disobeying maintains "top-down" order, i.e., the father's authority. Comprehension
KNOWING is from being told right from wrong. Truth comes from the father. Truth is "objective." Knowing

"Blooms' Taxonomies" are "a psychological classification system" used "to develop attitudes and values ... which are not shaped by the parents." "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." (Benjamin Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objective, Book 1: Cognitive Domain and Book 2: Affective Domain)

"The affective domain [the student's natural inclination to "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates and hate restraint] contains the forces that determine the nature of an individual's life and ultimately the life of an entire people." "The affective domain is, in retrospect, a virtual 'Pandora's Box' [a "box" full of evils, which once opened, can not be closed—once 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 child's carnal nature from the father's/Father's authority] through challenging the student's fixed beliefs [challenging the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth] and getting them to discuss issues [evaluating the world through their carnal desires, i.e., their "lusts," i.e., their "self interests" of the 'moment']." (Book 2: Affective Domain)

"In the more traditional society a philosophy of life, a mode of conduct, is spelled out for its members at an early stage in their lives." "A major function of education in such a society is to achieve the internalization of this philosophy." "This is not to suggest that education in an open society does not attempt to develop personal and social values." "It does indeed." "But more than in traditional societies it allows the individual a greater amount of freedom in which to achieve a Weltanschauung1." "1Cf. Erich Fromm, 1941; T. W. Adorno et al., 1950." (Book 2: Affective Domain) Erich Fromm and T. W. Adorno were two Marxist's who were members of the "Frankfurt School" who came to the states, fleeing Fascist Germany in the early 30's—who entered our universities and "assisted" our government in making policies.

"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." (Book 1: Cognitive Domain)

"In the eyes of the dialectic philosophy, nothing is established for all times, nothing is absolute or sacred." (Karl Marx)

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

"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." (Kenneth Bennie, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)

"Our aim is not merely to describe prejudice [the effect of the father's/Father's authority upon children/mankind] but to explain it in order to help in its eradication. Eradication means re-education." (Adorno)

"The peasantry [the father's/Father's authority system] constantly regenerates the bourgeoisie [the traditional "middle-class" family]—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)

"Concerning the changing of circumstances by men, the educator must himself be educated." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach # 3)

"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) How the "educator" teaches directly effects how the students think.

"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) By replacing traditional education, which supported the father's/Father's authority with the facilitated, dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process the next generation of citizens way of thinking and acting (paradigm) was changed from "Nationalist," i.e., individualism, under God (Patriarch) to Socialist, Marxist, Communist (Heresiarch), making "self," i.e., "lust," i.e., "self interest" the standard for life instead of their parent's/God's established commands, rules, facts, and truth.

The "educator" 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 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 restraint, 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" peoples "feelings" resulting in "the group" rejecting them—the student's natural desire for approval and fear of rejection forces him to participate.

"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]. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature)

The soul knows by being told. The flesh by "sense experience." While God (dealing with the soul) told Adam right from wrong, the Serpent (dealing with the flesh) created a "safe zone," i.e., a "positive" environment ("Thou shalt not surely die") where the woman could dialogue with her "self," i.e., could decide for her "self," i.e., from her carnal nature, i.e., from her "lust" what was right and what was wrong behavior, with Adam following. Genesis 3:1-6

"Prevent someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space." (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future)

"... the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws.'" (Lukács)

"... 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

"Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." (Rogers)

"I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students 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)

"Marxian theory needs Freudian-type instinct theory 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" 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." "The whole discussion becomes species-wide, One World." "This is a realistic combination of the Marxian version & the Humanistic. (Better add to definition of "humanistic" that it also means one species, One World.)" (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)

"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)

"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you." 2 Peter 2:3

By finding, through dialogue your "self interest," i.e., what you covet, i.e., what you "lust" after and 'justifying' it ("Thou shalt not surely die"), those "of and for the world," i.e., "of and for their self" "own" you, i.e., are able to buy and sell your soul. The moment the master facilitator of 'change' got the woman in the garden into dialogue (regarding right and wrong behavior) he "owned" her. The same applies to you

"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) For the flesh, "freedom" is "freedom" from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., "freedom" from having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for "lusting." You can not control "lust." "Lust" controls you. The only way to be "free" from the power/control of "lust" is in the Son, i.e., in doing the Father's will. The world can only offer you "freedom" from the conscience, negating your God given right of freedom of the conscience.

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: [but] the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:32, 34-36

"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

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

"... and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3

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

Marxism and psychology both deny (reject) the father's/Father's authority. To focus on the family (human relationship) is to negate the father's/Father's authority in the home. The 'moment' the father goes into dialogue with his family regarding right and wrong behavior he has negated his authority under God, i.e., to do the Father's will, i.e., he has abdicated his office of authority and his children (family) to the world. The earthly father is not perfect but his office is, having been given to him by God (the Father), who is perfect, in which to do His will. All the Marxism-psychology can do is 'liberate' men, women, and children from the father's/Father's authority (system) so they can become at-one-with the world. In the end they, as the woman (with Adam following) "own" all that is around them, i.e. what they see they own (until judgment day).

Sounding more like Karl Marx than Karl Marx himself, who was not yet born, Georg Hegel wrote:

"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 of others], where there is no antithesis [no "top-down," right-wrong way of thinking and acting, i.e., no father's/Father's authority] 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) In other words your spouse is not yours, your children are not yours, your property is not yours, your business is not yours, you are not yours, all belongs to the state. As J. L. Moreno stated it in his book Who Shall Survive?: "Parents have no right upon their offspring except a psychological right. Literally the children belong to universality [to the facilitators of 'change,' i.e., to the Marxists]."

While the Lord Jesus Christ (obeying His Father in all things commanded, dying for you on the cross) 'redeems' you from His Father's judgment upon you for your sins, with the Father 'reconciling' you to Himself in raising Him from the grave, Marxists-psychologists can only 'redeem' you from the father's/Father's authority, 'reconciling' you to the world, so you might die in your sins, spending eternity with them in the lake of fire that is never quenched.

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

"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," 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)—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., "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
