"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
Psychology is Marxism - Psychotherapists are Marxists:
(I am giving you the structure, method, system, or formula, leaving it up to you to come up with examples of its application and affect in the world around you—affecting your family, relatives, friends, neighbors, fellow workers, leaders, etc., even the leadership in the "church.")
Psychology is a political system. Like Marxists, psychotherapists are dedicated to 'liberating' children from the father's/Father's authority—coming between the father/Father and the children, "encouraging" the children to dialogue, i.e., to share with one another their desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, along with their dissatisfaction, resentment, hatred toward the father/Father and his/His authority which gets in the way, 'discovering' that the common ground (common-ism) they have with one another is their carnal nature, thereby, in consensus (having negated the father's/Father's authority in their feelings, thoughts, and actions, as well as in their relationship with themselves, others, and the world), uniting with one another in negating the father's/Father's authority from the face of the earth. "Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself, 'What would my parents want me to do?' During the process of therapy [dialogue] the individual comes to ask himself, 'What does it mean to me?'" (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
You can deny it all you want (practice "denial"), but it will not change the facts or the truth. Psychotherapists, like Marxists, make all participants common-ists, i.e., of the world only, negating the father's authority in the home in order to negate God the Father's authority over man, i.e., negating individualism, under God, i.e., negating nationalism, i.e., negating rule of law, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process—accomplishing what Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud all had in mind, socialism-globalism—advancing the ideology of Immanuel Kant, who in his book Critique of Judgment, wrote of "lawfulness without law" where the law of nature, i.e., the child's carnal nature rules "without" the law of God, i.e., "without" the father's/Father's authority.
"The ideas of the Enlightenment taught man that he could trust his own reason [his own "feelings," i.e., his carnal desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment,' i.e., his "sensuous needs" and "sense perception," i.e., "sense experience" (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3)] as a guide to establishing valid ethical norms and that he could rely on himself, needing neither revelation [the Word of God, i.e., the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth] nor that authority of the church [the Son of God, Jesus Christ] in order to know good and evil." (Stephen Eric Bronner ,Of Critical Theory and Its Theorists) Carl Rogers, a famous psychotherapist, explained it this way: "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." "The words 'seem to' are significant; it is the perception which functions in guiding behavior." (Rogers)
The Word of God instructs us: "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25 "Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness." Luke 11:35 "Woe unto them that call evil [the child's carnal nature] good, and good [the Father and His authority] evil; that put darkness [their "self"] for light, and light [the Son in obedience to the Father] for darkness;" Isaiah 5:20 "And this is the condemnation, that light [the obedient Son of God] is come into the world, and men loved darkness [their "self," i.e., the pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates] rather than light [doing the Father's will], because their deeds were evil ["of and for self"]." John 3:19 "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 "Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD." Jeremiah 17:5 "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 "It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23
The role of the "psychotherapist," i.e., the facilitator of 'change' is to come between the father/Father and the children, "helping" children to think for their "self," i.e., according to their "feelings" of the 'moment,' i.e., according to their carnal nature, 'justifying' their natural desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, along with their dissatisfaction, resentment, hatred toward restraint, i.e., toward the father's/Father's authority—which the facilitator of 'change,' i.e.., the "psychotherapist" manipulates through his or her use of inductive reasoning, i.e., presenting or recognizing "appropriate," i.e., "feelings" or "opinion" based information, rejecting or resisting (refusing to recognize) "inappropriate," i.e., facts based information when it gets in the way, i.e., does not support the desired outcome (the answers are in the questions, i.e., "feelings" or "opinion" based questions engender "feelings" or "opinion" based answers while facts or "knowing" based questions engender facts or "knowing" based answers)—establishing their "self", i.e., their "feelings" (their desires and dissatisfactions) of the 'moment' as being "equal" with, and therefore "above" (therefore "against") the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, thus 'liberating' their "self" from the father's/Father's authority so they can question, challenge, disregard, defy, attack the father's/Father's authority without having a guilty conscience, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity. In this way anyone holding to knowledge or facts that are antithetical to the "appropriate information," i.e., the "feelings," i.e., opinion or theory of the 'moment' are perceived as being unreasonable, i.e., irrational, i.e., extreme, i.e., prejudiced, i.e., hard headed, i.e., hateful, i.e., maladjusted, i.e., a lower order thinker, i.e., mentally ill (or potentially mentally ill), etc., making them and their knowledge, truth, or facts (from then on) irrelevant to the so called "discussion." Incapable of accepting their being "wrong," they reject any information that offends them (that hurts their "feelings"—"Make me 'feel' good, i.e., 'justify' or affirm my 'feelings' of the 'moment' or I will not listen to you, i.e., I will 'unlike' or 'unfriend' you."), i.e., that gets in their way, making it impossible for them to carry on an honest discussion with anyone. "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 all places." (Benjamin Bloom, et al., Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, Book 1, Cognitive Domain—"Bloom's Taxonomies"; "a psychological classification system" which all teachers are certified, schools accredited, and children and adults are graded, i.e., taxonomized by today) Karl Marx likewise advocated the same ideology: "In the eyes of the dialectic philosophy [dialogue], nothing is established for all times, nothing is absolute or sacred."
The father's/Father's authority is based upon the father/Father 1) preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as given, teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and discussing, at the father's/Father's discretion, any misunderstands, 2) blessing and/or rewarding the children who obey and do things right, 3) chastening (correcting, reproving, rebuking) the child who disobeys or does things wrong, in order for him or her to learn to obey and do what is right, and 4) casting out any child who questions, challenges, disregards, defies, attacks the father/Father and his/His authority. The child's nature is conversely based upon approaching pleasure and avoiding pain, including the pain which comes with missing out on pleasure—which the child dialogues with himself and/or with others about (when and if he can) throughout the day. It is here, in the child's carnal nature seeking 'liberation' from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., in dialogue that "psychotherapists," i.e., Marxists find the 'drive' for 'change'—making the 'liberation' of the child's carnal nature from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the negation of the father's/Father's authority, i.e., 'change' the 'purpose' of life. Karl Marx wrote: "The philosophers [those thinking about how the world "is," still subject to the father's/Father's authority, how it "ought" to be, where they can do what they want when they want, and how it "can" be once authority is in their control] have only interpreted the world in different ways [created a world subject to their personal desires, with everyone having to submit to their authority], the objective however, is change [where everyone, through dialogue, is able to identify their commonality with one another, according to their "feelings," i.e., their "self interests," i.e., their carnal desires and dissatisfaction of the 'moment,' and in consensus, i.e., affirming one another's carnal nature, put it into social action (affirmative action)—called praxis—negating the father's/Father's authority in everyone's feelings, thoughts, and actions, removing the father's/Father's authority from the face of the earth]." "Once the earthly family [with children having to submit their will to their father's authority, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to their "self" in order to do their father's will] is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly [Holy] family [with the Son and those following Him having to submit their will to His Heavenly Father's authority, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to their "self" in order to do His Heavenly Father's will], the former [children having to submit to their father's authority, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to their "self" in order to do their father's will] must be destroyed [Vernunft, annihilated] in theory and in practice [in the children's feeling, thoughts, and actions as well as in their relationship with themselves, others, and the world—resulting in them, in praxis (consensus) removing the father's/Father's authority from the face of the world]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #11, # 4)
"So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God." Romans 8:8 6 "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 As the child hears the father's commands and obeys them by faith, so man hears the word of God, obeying it by faith. It is the child's nature, when the father's commands stand in his way, to disobey. It is from this well, i.e. the carnal (rebellious) nature of the child, i.e., the heart of man, that Marxists and psychologists, as well as philosophers drink. "The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating whoever prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' it desires]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9
While the father/Father grades the child between obedience and disobedience, i.e., doing right and not wrong, i.e., obeying commands and rules, knowing facts and truth, the "psychotherapist," i.e., the Marxist "grades" the child along a spectrum or continuum of 'change,' i.e., "changingness," i.e., "feelings," i.e., how far down the dialectic road of compromise—rejection of the father's/Father's authority—the child has traveled, revealing his willingness to 'change,' i.e., to be a part of "the group," i.e., to be a globalist, i.e., a 'liberal' in mind, i.e., both in thought and in action—Very Liberal, Liberal, Moderate, Conservative, or Very Conservative. Abraham Maslow wrote: "History, almost universally, has dichotomized this higher & lower, but it is now clear that they are on the same continuum, in a hierarchical-integration of prepotency & pospotency." (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow) Carl Rogers wrote: "Individuals move not from a fixity through change to a new fixity, though such a process is indeed possible. But [through a] continuum from fixity to changingness, from rigid structure to flow, from stasis to process." "At one end of the continuum the individual avoids close relationships, which are perceived as being dangerous. At the other end he lives openly and freely in relation to the therapist and to others, guiding his behavior on the basis of his immediate experiencing – he has become an integrated process of changingness." (Rogers)
While true history is the commands, rules, facts, and truth of the past, guiding the child in making decisions in the present, effecting the future, for the "psychotherapist," i.e., Marxist history is the child's own life experience, i.e., his or her love of pleasure and hate of restraint which is used to determine the worth or value of any command, rule, fact, or truth of the past, in making decisions in the present, effecting the future. In this way of 'reasoning' anything of the past which stands in the way of the present and the future, i.e., which sustains or reinforces the way of the past must be removed (negated) for the sake of the present and future, i.e., for the sake of "peace and affirmation," i.e., for the sake of "worldly peace and socialist harmony"—which is role-played, i.e., programed in the child in the consensus meeting (classroom).
By simply placing the child in an environment of "feelings," i.e., "changingness," i.e., dialogue, striving for consensus, the child is exposed ("graded") as to where along the continuum or spectrum of 'change' he or she resides at any given 'moment,' in any given situation, whether he or she is willing to either hold on to, disregard, compromise, reject, or attack the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth in the face of group rejection, i.e., the consensus process, i.e., the desire for affirmation. "Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [their faith in authority, be it in their parent's, their teacher's, their boss's, their leader(s), or God's authority] in the face of apparent group unanimity." (Irvin Yalom, Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy) "The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs ['liberation' from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., 'liberated' to be his "self" again, i.e., carnal, i.e., of the world only, as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life] by accepting belongingness to the group." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change) It is the power of affirmation, i.e., "the group's" affirmation of the child's carnal nature (which is intoxicating, addictive, and possessive) over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority (which carries with it restraint) that makes the child "readily adaptable to" and thereafter 'loyal' to 'change.'" The very act (praxis) of putting facts based, i.e., traditional, i.e., "do right and not wrong" minded children (or adults) in a "feelings," i.e., "opinions" based, i.e., dialoguing to consensus environment frustrates them, creating a condition in them called cognitive dissonance, where they are caught between holding onto their belief, which restrains their carnal nature, while desiring to be a part of "the group," which affirms their carnal nature, making them more "willing" to participate in the process of 'change'— in order to get out of the pain (fear) of rejection. "Unfreezing," i.e., the praxis (social action) of drawing an individual into dialogue, i.e., "encouraging" them to share, along with others, their personal desires and dissatisfactions without fear of reprimand, "refers to the process of disconfirming an individual's former belief system." (Yalom)
There is no other 'drive' for psychology, i.e., "group psychotherapy" than the carnal nature of the child seeking 'liberation' from the father's/Fathers authority. There is no other 'purpose' for psychology, i.e., "group psychotherapy" than the use of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification" (dialoguing opinions—"I feel," "I think"—in a group setting, with everyone seeking affirmation, i.e., consensus, i.e., to be "positive") in order to 'liberate' the child's ''liberal mind," negating the father's/Father's authority in the child's thoughts and action, i.e., the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning so he can be "of and for self," i.e., of and for the world only. Discussion makes facts and truth, i.e., knowledge the foundation from which to communicate, requiring the setting aside of feelings, opinions, and theories in order to arrive at a conclusion, i.e., determine the outcome while dialogue makes facts and truth, i.e., knowledge subject to feelings, opinions, and theories, thus preventing facts, truth, and knowledge from determining the outcome. "Then [through dialogue] both parties recognize their rigidified position in relation to each other as the result of detachment and abstraction from their common life context [due to the father's/Father's authority]. "In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other [through the praxis of dialogue], they experience the common ground of their existence [their desire for the carnal pleasure of the 'moment' which the world stimulates and their resentment toward authority that stands in the way]." (Jürgen Habermas, The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory) In dialogue, i.e., feelings, opinions, and theories the father's/Father's authority, i.e., commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., knowledge is negated. "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 What has happened (is happening) to our children?
How parents communicate with their children reveals their curriculum, i.e., their method of instruction, i.e., their political system. How children communicate with their parents reveals their paradigm, i.e., how they feel, think, and act, relate with themselves, others, and the world, and respond to authority—whether they are patriarch, matriarch, or heresiarch in paradigm. Curriculum engenders paradigm. 'Change' the curriculum, i.e., how "policy" is established or arrived at in the home or in the classroom and you 'change' the child's paradigm, i.e., how the child relates with the world and responds to authority. Psychotherapy, as Marxism is a curriculum, i.e., a political system which is found in Genesis 3:1-6 where"self" justification negated Hebrews 12:5-11, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, negating Romans 7:14-25, i.e., the children having a guilty conscience for doing wrong disobeying, sinning, resulting in the children 'justifying' themselves by blaming someone (or something) else for the crisis they find themselves in, i.e., for their bad (wicked) behavior, i.e., refusing to see themselves as being "wrong," seeing themselves as being a "victim" instead. Psychotherapists are Marxists initiating and sustaining a political system which is antithetical to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the rule of law. It is why we see such drastic 'change,' i.e., disrespect of law, sovereignty, jurisdiction, authority, etc., (restraint) taking place in the world today—not only in the classroom, the workplace, government, the neighborhood, and the home, but even in the "church."
Karl Marx sought to negate the father's authority in society, starting with the King and those who supported him (the nobles, religious leaders, and the bourgeoisie). Sigmund Freud sought to negate the father's authority in the individual, i.e., in the child, negating the father's authority in his or her thoughts and action. Sigmund Freud's story of history is about children uniting as one (in consensus), killing and "devouring" their father so they could have sex (incest) with one another and their mother (Freud considered all children sexually active, i.e., the idea of two or more becoming one in feeling, though, and action, despite children not being able to procreate). "Freud noted that patricide and incest are part of man's deepest nature." (Yalom) Psychology is grounded, i.e., is based upon Freud's "story," i.e., his fable that the child's carnal nature, his or her natural desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates and his or her natural resentment toward restraint is the fountainhead from which 'truth' is 'discovered' and 'known.' Psychology can not exist without Freud's fable—"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, and the establishment of the brother clan," (Marcuse) "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
"Freud's individual psychology is in its very essence social psychology." "Freud's theory is in its very substance 'sociological.'" (Herbart Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud) In other words, according to the teachings of psychology, the child's natural desire for affirmation, i.e., his desire for approval from others—approving of his desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates and his resentment toward restraint—makes him social, transcending the approval of the father/Father who restrains his carnal nature, i.e., who's authority, according to psychotherapists, "represses" him, preventing him from being his "self" and "alienates" him from others who have the same carnal desires and dissatisfactions (which is only discoverable through dialogue, i.e., through the language of psychology, i.e., "I feel," "I think," i.e., through the language of seduction, deception, and manipulation, i.e., the language of "group psychotherapists," i.e., facilitators of 'change').
Neurosis, according to psychotherapy, is the result of the child desiring to do right and not wrong, according to the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, while at the same time desiring to do what he wants, when he wants, i.e., to be himself. It is this conflict between the child's carnal nature, i.e., his desire to approach pleasure and avoid pain and do the father's/Father's will, i.e., obey the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth at the same time (which prevents him from being his "self") that destabilizes the child, i.e., that causes neurosis, making him readily adaptable to 'change,' i.e., willing to negate the father's/Father's authority if and when he is provided the right conditions and opportunity. Psychotherapy is all about providing the child with those right conditions and opportunity. "Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure, . . . have all left man overly docile, but secretly in his unconscious unconvinced, and therefore neurotic." "Neurotic symptoms, with their fixations on perversions and obscenities, demonstrate the refusal of the unconscious essence of our being to acquiesce in the dualism of flesh and spirit, higher and lower." "Our repressed desires are the desires we had, unrepressed, in childhood; and they are sexual desires." "The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious [in the child's carnal nature]; the foundation has to be recovered." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History) According to psychotherapy, not only is the child 'liberated' from repression and alienation in the consensus process, i.e., by his participation in the dialectic process (dialogue), he is 'liberated' from the affect the father's/Father's authority has had on his life as well, i.e., neurosis., i.e., feeling guilty for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for being "human."
Karl Marx, as Freud, saw the 'liberation' of children from the father's authority as key to 'changing' the individual and society. "It is not individualism [the child under the father's/Father's authority, doing the father's/Father's will] that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society ["human relationship based upon self interest"] is the necessary framework through which freedom [i.e., 'liberation' from the father's/Father's authority] and individuality [being able to think and do what comes naturally, i.e., being "of and for self" without having a guilty conscience] are made realities." (Karl Marx, in John Lewis, The Life and Teachings of Karl Marx) According to Karl Marx "The life which he [the child] has given to the object [to the father, by obeying the father] sets itself against him as an alien and hostile force." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3, pp. 83-84) Therefore, according to Marxists (as well as psychotherapists), God is created by the child when the child accepts the father's authority, establishing the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth over and therefore against his own carnal nature, i.e., repressing his carnal thoughts and actions. "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) Psychology and Marxism are based upon the same ideology, the negation of the father's/Father's authority in order to 'liberate' the child and society from the father's/Father's restraints. "'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 over his children, i.e., in the home]." (Marcuse) The idea being, if you want to get rid of God, i.e., the fear of judgment, i.e., the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, you must first get rid of (negate) the father's authority not only in society but in the home as well. Conversely it is understood (by Marxists and psychologists) that if you restore the father's/Father's authority in the individual, in the home, and in society, Marxism, along with psychology is condemned. "If the 'restoring of life' of the world is to be conceived in terms of the Christian revelation [where children, men, and women, as the Son, have faith in and obey the Father, doing the Father's will], then Marx must collapse into a bottomless abyss." (Jürgen Habermas, Theory and Practice) In other words, wherever the traditional, middle class home prevails, i.e., wherever the father's/Father's authority rules, socialism-globalism is inhibited or blocked. "The dialectical method was overthrown [the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's "Because I said so"/"It is written" prevented dialogue, i.e., prevented 'change']—the parts [the children] were prevented from finding their definition within the whole [within "the group," i.e., within society; which is only 'discoverable' through dialogue, i.e., through the "dialectic method"]." (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)
"Human consciousness can be liberated from the parental (Oedipal) complex only be being liberated from its cultural derivatives, the paternalistic state and the patriarchal God." "Freud speaks of religion as a 'substitute-gratification'– the Freudian analogue to the Marxian formula, 'opiate of the people.'" "The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination [the father's/Father's authority]." "To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit." (Brown)
1) Chastening a child when he does wrong, disobeys, sins, 2) letting him be permissive and do what he wants when he wants, and 3) encouraging him to do what he wants with the consent of "the group" are different political systems. Psychotherapy is a political system dedicated to the negation of the patriarchal paradigm, i.e., the father's/Father's authority. As does Marxism, psychology establishes the child's carnal nature, i.e. the child's "sense experience," i.e., the child's "sensuous needs" and "sense perception" of the 'moment,' and the world that stimulates it over and therefore against the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's/Father's authority. (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) It is therefore imperative, according to Marxist's-psychologist's, i.e., "group psychotherapists," i.e., facilitators of 'change' that the child experience a "safe zone," where, along with other children, he can share his thoughts which are antithetical to the father's/Father's authority without fear of reprimand, i.e., being judged, put down, condemned, punished, restrained, etc., for his "feelings," i.e., opinion. As Kurt Lewin explained it: "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: Selected Papers) In other words, since it is the father's/Father's authority (threat of being chastened for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning or fear of being cast out for questioning, challenging, disregarding, defying, attacking authority) that engenders a guilty conscience in the child when he is thinking about doing, is doing, or has done what he wants against the father's commands and rules, by placing the child in an environment (a "safe zone") where he, along with other children, can share his opinion, i.e., i.e., his "feelings," i.e., his desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment' without fear of the father's/Father's authority, i.e., judgment and condemnation, i.e., being chastened or cast out, the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning is negated, allowing him (along with the rest of the children) to do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity—questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking their parent's authority when they get home. "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; one of two books referred to as "Bloom's Taxonomies"—which are based upon the "Weltanschauung," i.e., world view or ideology of two Marxists, "Erich Fromm, T. W. Adorno"—which are foundational for teacher certification and school accreditation around the world today, including "Christian" school and increasingly in home schooling material as well.)
These "new practices" are not new. They are the same method that was first put into praxis in a garden called Eden (Genesis 3:1-6), with someone coming between the children and the Father, washing their brain of the Father's authority, doing what is called a soviet. Kurt Lewin's "unfreezing, moving, refreezing," "force field analysis," and "group dynamics" are essential to the process of 'change,' i.e., brainwashing, i.e., the soviet system, i.e., the consensus process.
"Protestantism was the strongest force in the extension of cold rational individualism." (Max Horkheimer, Vernunft and Selbsterhaltung) The "priesthood of all believers," "doing your best as unto the Lord," "freedom of the conscience," i.e., the Protestant reformation, restoring the child-father relationship is seen as the greatest barrier to a Marxist-Freudian takeover of the world—requiring the individual to abandon his faith in the one above, i.e., in the father's/Father's authority in order to become subject to and 'loyal' to "the group," i.e., to the "mass," i.e., to affirmation and the one(s) leading, i.e., "guiding," i.e., seducing, deceiving, and manipulating them below. The use of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification' in a group setting, with group affirmation (the consensus process) is seen as the quickest (most "affective") way to overcome the effect the father's/Father's authority has upon the individual and society. "It is usually easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Benne)
While Jesus Christ had "a group" he held them, as himself, accountable to his Father's authority first and foremost. "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 "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 "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9
Psychotherapists, i.e., Marxists are prejudiced against the patriarchal paradigm, i.e., the father's/Father's authority—placing the child's "feelings," i.e., the affective domain between himself and the father/Father, thereby placing the carnal nature of the child over and therefore against the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., the father's/Father's authority. Dedicated to the carnal nature of the child (the proletariat) their praxis is dedicated to the negation of the father's/Father's authority, i.e., 'liberating' the child's carnal nature, i.e., the child's "lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life," and therefore the world from the father's/Father's authority, turning the child and the world against the father's/Father's authority. Look at how the 'liberal's' are acting today, as spoiled, unthankful, hateful children insisting upon everyone accepting and supporting their way of thinking and acting, i.e., questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking the father's/Father's authority so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with no sense of guilt.
There is no such thing as a Christian psychologist. Anyone claiming to be a "Christian psychologist" is a deceiver, seducing all who listen to them into their lair (lie) so they can manipulate them (as natural resource) and use them for your own pleasure and gain, "justifying" their "self," i.e., their carnal nature, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity. Psychologists, like Marxism, praxis Genesis 3:1-6, i.e., "self" justification, negating Hebrews 12:5-11, i.e., negate the father's/Father's authority in order to negate Romans 7:14-25, i.e., negate their having a guilty conscience for doing wrong disobeying, sinning.
"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 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8, 9 "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4 "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?" 2 Corinthians 6:14, 15 "For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10
"The 'original sin' [disregarding the commands, rules, facts, and truth of the father/Father] must be committed again: 'We must again eat from the tree of knowledge [i.e., we must do what we "feel" like doing in the moment,' i.e., be our "self," thinking and acting according to (in harmony with) our carnal nature, i.e., be as we were before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into our life] in order to fall back into the state of innocence.'" (Marcuse)
"In the process of history man gives birth to himself ['liberates' himself from God's authority]. He becomes what he potentially is [of the world only], 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) "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." [Fromm believed that man could] "not take the last logical step, to give up 'God' and to establish a concept of man as a being who is alone in the world, but who can feel at home in it if he achieves union with his fellow man and with nature." (Erick Fromm, Escape from Freedom)
Georg Hegel wrote: "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's/Father's authority so that he can be himself again, as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life]." (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
"Psychoanalysis, mysticism, Freud, Hegel, and Marx – the unseen harmony is stronger than the seen." "Common to all of them is a mode of consciousness that can be called the dialectic imagination ["self" 'justification, where the "imagination of man's heart can be evil continuously" without having a sense of guilt]." "The key to the nature of dialectical thinking may lie in psychoanalysis, more specifically in Freud's psychoanalysis of negation." "Freud saw that in the id there is no negation [no father's/Father's authority, i.e., no restraints against the child's carnal nature], only affirmation and eternity." (Brown) In other words, get rid of the "negative," i.e., the preaching and teaching of the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and obeyed (the father's/Father's authority) in the room (treat any command, rule, fact, or truth as an opinion or theory) and all you have is the "positive," i.e., the child's carnal nature, i.e., how everyone is "feeling" and what everyone is "thinking" in the 'moment,' i.e., their opinion (which carries with it no father's/Father's authority)—"My or Our will be done" negates "Thy will be done," "I think" negates "I know," theory negates belief, opinion negates facts and truth, dialogue negates preaching, teaching, and discussion resulting in "the negation of negation," i.e., the negation of father's/Father's authority, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process, so all (questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking the father's/Father's authority) can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity.
"As the Frankfurt School wrestled with how to 'reinvigorate Marx', they 'found the missing link in Freud.'" "The antithesis of the 'authoritarian' type [the opposite of the father's/Father's authority] was called 'revolutionary [the rebellious nature of the child].'" "By The Authoritarian Personality [a book published in the 60's, written by Theodor Adorno, a member of "The Frankfurt School," a group of Marxists who immigrated to America from Germany in the 30's] 'revolutionary' had changed to the 'democratic,'" with Marxists infiltrating and taking over the Democratic party through their promotion and use of facilitated, "group psychotherapy," consensus (bipartisan) meetings, politicizing all departments of government, from the local to the national, making them subject to a globalist, humanist, environmentalist, i.e., common-ist agenda—why President Ronald Reagan stated he had not left the Democratic Party but it had left him. (Martin Jay, The Dialectical Imagination: A History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research, 1923-1950)
Abraham Maslow wrote: "Marxian theory needs Freudian-type instinct theory to round it out [Freud considered all children sexually active, i.e., sexually promiscuous with themselves, one another, their mother, etc.,—Maslow in agreement wrote: "So it looks as if nudism is the first step toward ultimate free-animality-humanness. It's the easiest to take. Must encourage it. 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."]. 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 are necessary for personal growth, bad social conditions 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, at least so far as the guiding goal is concerned. To get to that goal is politics & is in time and space & will take a long time & cost much blood." ". . . A caretaker government could immediately start training for democracy & self-government & give it little by little, as deserved." "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.)" ". . . I've decided to get into the World Federalists, become pro-UN, & the like." (Maslow, Journals) emphasis added
"Authoritarian submission [children humbling, denying, dying to their "self" in order to do their 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." (Adorno)
"I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students [students who remain loyal to their parent's and/or God'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 Jesus [the obedient Son of God, i.e. obeying His Heavenly Father in all things commanded] called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me [turning them away from having faith in him, i.e. from obeying him, i.e. from following him in his obedience to his Heavenly Father, turning them back to their carnal nature instead], it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." Matthew 19:2-6
"Any non-family-based collectivity [social-psychological based organization or institution] that intervenes between parent and child and attempts to regulate and modify the parent-child relationship will have a democratizing [liberalizing] impact on that relationship." (Warren Bennis, The Temporary Society) "Only when the immediate interests [the "self interest" of the children] are integrated into a total view [brought to a consensus] and related to the final goal of the process ['liberation' from the father's/Father's authority] do they become revolutionary." "For to accept that solution [the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus], even in theory, would be tantamount to observing society from a class standpoint [from the child's perspective] other than that of the bourgeoisie [from the parent's perspective]. And no class can do that-unless it is willing to abdicate its power freely [parent's are willing to sacrifice their authority in order to initiate or sustain "relationship" with their children]. ' (Lukács) "All that matters is that the opportunity for genuine activity ["self interest"] be restored to the individual [to the child]; that the purposes of society ["the group"] and of his own become identical ["of and for self" only]." (Fromm, Escape) "Persons will not come into full partnership in the process until they register dissatisfaction." (Benne)
"The individual is emancipated in the social group." "The resurrection of the body [the 'liberation' of the child's carnal nature from the father's/Father's authority] is a social project . . . a practical political problem." "Freud commented that only through the solidarity of all the participants could the sense of guilt be assuaged." (Brown) "Only within a social context [where compromise is required in order to initiate and sustain relationships] individual man is able to realize his own potential as a rational being." (Joseph O'Malley in Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') "The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach # 6) "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, the "new" world order is not established upon the father's/Father's authority, but upon the carnal nature of the child, i.e., upon the child's desire for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, including (and especially) his desire for affirmation, and his resentment toward restraint (authority), which all children have in common.
The negation of the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning is at the heart of the process of 'change,' i.e., "psychotherapy," requiring the negation of the father's/Father's authority in order to accomplish it. Kurt Lewin explained it this way: "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) In other words, the guilty conscience, which prevents the child from doing what he wants when he can, which is produced by the father's authority, is overcome (replaced with the "super-ego") by placing the child in a "positive" environment where he can think about doing (and even do) what he wants without fear of being judged, condemned, put down, reprimanded, punished, etc., in effect 'liberating' the child from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., from "negativity."
"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) Through children dialoguing their opinions to a consensus in a facilitated, "group grade," "psychotherapist" (soviet) classroom, children are 'liberated' from their parent's authority, i.e., their thoughts are being washed of their parent's authority, 'changing' them into socialism-globalism, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience, fulfilling Georg Hegel's, Karl Marx's, and Sigmund Freud's political agenda, the negation of nationalism, creating a "new" world order based upon "human nature" only, i.e., a world void of Godly restraint, where man could do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity. Marxism and psychology is nothing more than the praxis of Genesis 3:1-6 ("self" 'justification'), negating Hebrews 12:5-11 (the father's/Father's authority), negating Romans 7:14-25 (the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning).
"Parents have no right upon their offspring except a psychological right. Literally the children belong to universality." "We propose, therefore, the specialization of the notion of parenthood into two distinct and different functions-the biological parent and the social parent. They may come together in one individual or they may not. But the problem is how to produce a procedure which is able to substitute and improve this ancient order." (J. L. Moreno, Who Shall Survive?)
Psychotherapists, i.e., Marxists see your children as being theirs, shaping them in their image (children of disobedience), making them 'liberals,' i.e., hostile toward authority, ruling, as children over you. Talking to 'liberals,' i.e., psychotherapists is like talking to a snake, they never answer a question honestly—which would expose them and their agenda, i.e., taking control over you and your children, i.e., over the nation and the world. Do you really want a psychotherapist, i.e., a Marxists defining the "mentally ill," as is being done today? You would more than likely be on the list, as mentally ill, or potentially mentally ill, unless you were, of course a Marxist, i.e., one of them, doing psychoanalysis on everyone else, i.e., filling out portfolios, writing out the list of who's in (Marxists) and who's not (individuals, under the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the mentally ill)—like them, questioning, challenging, disregarding, defying, attacking, i.e., negating the father's/Father's authority so you can do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience, i.e., so you can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity.
"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
"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the pleasures of the 'moment' 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
"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
