Psychology Is A Political System:
known as Marxism.
Kurt Lewin, famous for his work on "group dynamics," "force field analysis," and "unfreezing, moving or changing, and refreezing" knew the effect that psychology has on the thoughts and actions ("theory and practice") of those who come under its influence. His formula B = F (P · E)—behavior (B) is the function (F) of the person's (P) response to his environment (E), overcoming any barrier which stands in the way of his desired goal (outcome)—makes the child's carnal nature, i.e., "human nature," i.e., the child's love for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates and his hate of restraint—anger heightens the dopamine level in the brain (which is common with all carnal minded children, i.e., children of disobedience)—the foundation from which we are to determine what is right and what is wrong in any given situation, overcoming (negating) the barrier (restraints) of the father's/Father's authority, in order to become "of and for self" only, which is (according to psychology) the goal ('purpose') of life. Psychology is at the heart of 'liberalism,' socialism, humanism, globalism, i.e., the "new" world order.
"Sense experience must be the basis of all science." "Science is only genuine science when it proceeds from sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3)
"Experience is, for me, the highest authority." "Neither the Bible nor the prophets, neither the revelations of God can take precedence over my own direct experience." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
"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
"Behavior science" redefines the soul. It 'liberates' it from God—being accountable to Him alone—by 'creating' (discovering) its "self" in its relationship with the world, i.e., 'liberating' its "self" from that which is not in harmony with its "self," i.e., its carnal nature and the world which stimulates it. The very act of science materializes all that it evaluates, making it subject to the world (carnal) only. In science, if it is not material (of the world, i.e., sensuous) it is not real. By making "feelings," i.e., "sensuous needs" and "sense perception," i.e., "sense experience," i.e., the affective domain a science, only that which is of the child's carnal nature becomes 'real,' negating the father's/Father's authority which restrains the child, i.e., which gets in the way of pleasure, i.e. which gets in the way of the child's carnal desires of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world, negating the guilty conscience which the father's/Father's authority engenders in the process. Karl Marx wrote:
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual [in other words the pathway to reality, i.e., to know one's "self," i.e., "self actualization" is to enjoy the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world, overcoming all barriers to pleasure, which are illusionary, which are not in harmony with nature]." "The justice of state constitutions is to be decided not on the basis of Christianity, not from the nature of Christian society [obedience to the father's/authority, i.e., "rule of law"] but from the nature of human society [in harmony with the child's carnal nature]." "The state arises out of the exigencies of man's nature." "Laws must not fetter human life; but yield to it; they must change as the needs and capacities of the people change [making law subjective, i.e., subject to the "felt needs" and perception of those in power, i.e., "If I feel this way, i.e., loving pleasure and hating restraint, everyone one else should feel this way as well"]." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')
"Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)
The guilty conscience, i.e., "feeling bad" for wanting or doing something "forbidden" is (according to Karl Marx) created by the child accepting the father's/Father's authority—empowering the father/Father to rule over him. Karl Marx explained it this way: "The life [authority] which he [the child] has given to the object [to the parent, to the teacher, or to God—when the child humbles, denies, dies to, disciplines, controls his "self" in order to do their will] sets itself against him as an alien and hostile force." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) 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." (Kurt Lewin, A Dynamic Theory of Personality: Selected Papers)
"The guilty conscience ["negative valence"] is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)
"Authoritarian submission [obedience to a "higher authority," i.e., parents, the teacher, the boss, ... God, tantamount to Fascism (nationalism) in the mind of 'liberal's'] 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 [racism] had naturally to take these attitudes into account." "The power-relationship between the parents, the domination of the subject's family by the father or by the mother, and their relative dominance in specific areas of life also seemed of importance for our problem." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality)
"The 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)
Kurt Lewin knew that by placing the child in a "safe place/zone/space," i.e., "positive environment," where the father's/Father's authority is called into question and rejected or left out, i.e., negated the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning (against the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., for being "human") would be negated as well (called "the negation of negation"). In one short sentence Lewin explained how, by changing the child's learning environment, the guilty conscience—which interferes with the child becoming, i.e., actualizing his "self"—can be negated.
"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)
Psychology is antithetical to the father's/Father's authority. It has no other 'purpose' than that of 'liberating' children from the father's/Father's authority, so they can be "of and for self" and the world only, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity (without having a guilty conscience for being their "self," i.e., for being "of and for self" and the world only).
"... 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 [the negation (annihilation) of the Father's authority] and its consequences are the same [there is no Father's authority restraining the child's carnal nature, i.e. "human nature" in the child's/father's id]." (Herbart Marcuse explaining Freud's historiography in his book, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud)
"In psychology, Freud and his followers have presented convincing arguments that the id, man's basic and unconscious nature, is primarily made up of instincts which would, if permitted expression, result in incest, murder, and other crimes." "The whole problem of therapy, as seen by this group, is how to hold these untamed forces in check in a wholesome and constructive manner, rather than in the costly fashion of the neurotic [neurosis is, according to psychology, a product of the parent's authority over the child, preventing the child from becoming his "self," i.e., becoming of and for the world only]." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
"Freud noted that patricide and incest [love of pleasure and hate of restraint] are part of man's deepest nature." (Irvin Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)
In psychology by beginning with the child, i.e., the child's carnal desires, the father's/Father's authority is automatically negated. This is why the child's "feelings" take precedence over the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth, making them subject to the child's carnal desires, i.e., opinion.
"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 'liberated' from the father's authority]." (George Hegel, System of Ethical Life)
"Once the earthly family [where the children learn to be obedient to their parent's] is discovered to be the secret of the holy family [where the only begotten Son of God and those following him are obedient to His Father's authority in all things commanded], the former [parental authority, i.e. the father's authority in the traditional home] must itself be annihilated theoretically and practically [in the child's personal "feelings" and thoughts and in his social actions, i.e. in his relationship with others, no longer being "judgmental," i.e. condemning of his and their carnal thoughts and actions]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)
"It is not individualism [the child subject to the father's/Father's authority, obeying the father/Father, doing the father's/Father's will instead of his own] that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society ["human relationship based upon self interest," i.e., finding one's identity in "the group," i.e., in society] is the necessary framework through which freedom [from the father's/Father's authority] and individuality [being "of and for self" and the world] are made realities." (Karl Marx, in John Lewis, The Life and Teachings of Karl Marx)
"The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #6)
"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)
Sigmund Freud believed "the individual is emancipated in the social group." "Freud speaks of religion as a 'substitute-gratification'—the Freudian analogue to the Marxian formula, 'opiate of the people.'" "Freud commented that only through the solidarity of all the participants could the sense of guilt [the guilty conscience for disobeying the father/Father] be assuaged." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)
"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture. 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)
"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 the children from the father's/Father's authority] are necessary for personal growth, bad social conditions [obedience 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." "Only a world government with world-shared values could be trusted or permitted to take such powers. If only for such a reason a world government is necessary. It too would have to evolve. I suppose it would be weak or lousy or even corrupt at first—it certainly doesn't amount to much now & won't until sovereignty is given up little by little by 'nations.'" "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.)" (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)
"To experience Freud is to partake a second time of the forbidden fruit;" (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)
"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.'" (Herbart Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: A philosophical inquiry into Freud)
In the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, "group grade," soviet style, brainwashing, psychotherapy, facilitated, Transformational Marxist classroom (environment) there is no father's/Father's authority. There is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, in an opinion, or in consensus. .Dialogue requires suspending commands, rules, facts, and truth, as upon a cross, in order to continue the dialogue, i.e., the child's carnal "feeling," i.e., desires. Opinions dialogued to a consensus, i.e., the praxis of psychology is the motto of the French Revolution: Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité. It is what Immanuel Kant, along with Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud had in mind.
"Bypassing the traditional channels of top-down decision making, our objective centers upon transforming public opinion into an effective instrument of global politics." "Individual values must be measured by their contribution to common interests and ultimately to world interests transforming public consensus into one favorable to the emergence of a stable and humanistic world order." "Consensus is both a personal and a political step. It is a precondition of all future steps." (Ervin Laszlo, A Strategy for the Future: The Systems Approach to World Order)
"Bloom's Taxonomies" (which all teachers are certified and all schools are accredited in) are "a psychological classification system." "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." "Educational procedures are intended to develop the more desirable rather than the more customary types of behavior." (Benjamin Bloom, et al., Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, Book 1, Cognitive Domain)
"To create effectively a new set of attitudes and values, the individual must undergo great reorganization of his personal beliefs and attitudes and he must be involved in an environment which in many ways is separated from the previous environment in which he was developed." "...many of these changes are produced by association with peers who have less authoritarian points of view, as well as through the impact of a great many courses of study in which the authoritarian pattern is in some ways brought into question while more rational and nonauthoritarian behaviors are emphasized." "What we call 'good teaching' is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives through challenging the student's fixed beliefs and getting them to discuss issues." "The affective domain is, in retrospect, a virtual 'Pandora's Box.'" "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 Doman)
Psychology is the "injection site" of the 'liberal's,' i.e., the socialist's "dirty little secrets" into society, 'justifying' their "self," i.e., 'liberating' their "self" and all who listen to them from having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for being "human."
"The individual may have 'secret' thoughts which he will under no circumstances reveal to anyone else if he can help it. To gain access [through getting him or her to dialogue, i.e., to share his or her "feelings" of the 'moment' with others] is particularly important, for here may lie the individual's potential [for 'change,' i.e., to become of and for his or her "self" and the world only—'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority (Genesis 3:1-6)]." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality)
"Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure [Hebrews 12:5-11], . . . have all left man overly docile [obedient to authority], but secretly in his unconscious unconvinced, and therefore neurotic [believing one thing while feeling and/or acting contrary—called belief-action dichotomy, i.e., desiring to obey God/parent yet sinning/disobeying, feeling guilty as a result (Romans 7:14-25)]." "Neurotic symptoms, with their fixations on perversions and obscenities ["lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, which goes contrary to the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], demonstrate the refusal of the unconscious essence of our being [our "human nature" "lusting" after the pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates] to acquiesce in the dualism of flesh and spirit, higher and lower [to submit to the father's/Father's authority]." "The repression of normal adult sexuality is required only by cultures which are based on patriarchal domination." "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)
"Nakedness is absolutely right. So is the attack on antieroticism, the Christian & Jewish foundations." (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)
In other words the child must be 'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the child, dialoguing with his "self" (expressing his love of pleasure and hate of restraint and the restrainer) must be "grouped" with other children, who are themselves dialoguing with their "self" (expressing their love of pleasure and hate of restraint and the restrainer), and through dialogue, 'discover' common ground with one another, "building relationship" with one another based upon what they all have in common (their love of pleasure and hate of restraint and the restrainer), i.e., their common "self interest"—making the child's love of the world and hate of the father's/Father's authority the basis of life, 'creating' common-ism through dialogue, i.e., dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification' (with one another), i.e., affirmation. Dialogue (psychology) is the pathway to common-ism, making "feelings" the foundation of right and wrong, making all children, i.e., mankind, like Pavlov's dog, Thorndike's chickens, Skinner's rats, seducible, deceivable, and manipulatable, bringing everyone under the control of the psychologist, i.e., the psychotherapist, i.e., the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the Transformational Marxist, i.e., the vanguard party, to be used by them as "human resource" for their own pleasure and gain, claiming that what they are doing is for the "good" of mankind, i.e., society, i.e., "the people" (of course).
"As the Frankfurt School wrestled with how to 'reinvigorate Marx' [since "hard line" Communists ("Traditional Marxist") had entrapping Marxism within traditional, "top-down," Nationalist tendencies, thus failing the "purpose" of Marxism, i.e. global dominance], they 'found the missing link in Freud [they could bring Marxism into the classroom and into the community without the parent's knowledge]." (Martin Jay, The Dialectical Imagination: A History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research)
A group of Marxist's (known as Transformational Marxists) who, coming to America in the early 30's—along with Kurt Lewin and Wilhelm Reich who edited their journal, Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung (while they were all still in Germany)—set up shop in our Universities, i.e. Columbia, Berkley, San Diego, Iowa, MIT, Michigan, etc., training professors and advisors to legislators, judges, presidents, governors, mayors, school administrators and educators, military and corporate leaders, etc., i.e. "human resource personnel," "facilitators of 'change,'" etc., on how to influence Federal policies regarding education, the workplace, government, and even the "church." By circumventing nationalism (by focusing upon the individual himself, through the praxis of psychotherapy, i.e. group psychotherapy to be more exact, by utilizing "therapy groups," "T-groups," "youth groups," "consensus groups," etc.—which incorporate J. L. Moreno's "role-playing" techniques, a "Transformational Marxist" who came to America, from Austria, in the late 20's) they were able to bring Marxism into the American classroom, workplace, government, and even into the "church," through the praxis of psychology 'changing' how policies, i.e. how decisions are made, 'changing' the participants (and the community, state, nation, the world, and the "church") in the process.
What psychology and Marxism have in common is the negation of the father's/Father's authority, the barrier that stands in the way of the child's carnal desires, i.e., "human nature." When you start with the child's carnal nature, making pleasure the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will all you have is man's carnal nature. Psychology is Mao's "long march" across America and around the world, 'liberating' children from parental/Godly restraint so they can used be socialist for their own pleasure and gain—dying in their sins. You can call yourself a Christian psychologist all you want. In the end all you have done is perpetrated eternal death on all who listen to your "self" 'justifying' lies.
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to "self" in order to do God the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating God the Father and His authority which "gets in the way," i.e. which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' as a child of disobedience ('justifying' their "self") can not see their hatred toward God the Father as being evil because their love of "self," i.e., their love of pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," blinding them to the truth of the deceitfulness and wickedness of their heart.
"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
George Washington understood the nature of man's heart and the demise of "free government" if man's heart, i.e., if "self interest" had unfettered reign.
"The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them."
"If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for, though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield." (George Washington Farewell Speech)
The political system of psychology is at the heart of 'change,' 'liberating' children from the father's/Father's authority, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., be human with impunity, i.e., without having a guilty conscience, leaving them to die in their sins.
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12
"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;" 2 Timothy 4:3 1
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" 1 Timothy 4:1
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety [through the seduction, deception, and manipulation of counseling, i.e. through the facilitating of 'change, i.e. putting Genesis 3:1-6 into 'praxis' 'liberating' the flesh, i.e. negating the Father's authority, i.e. Hebrews 12:5-11, 'justifying' the child's nature, i.e. "human nature," i.e. negating man's need for salvation from the power of sin and the wrath of God upon him for his praxis of it, i.e. dialectic 'reasoning' (psychology) saves us from eternal life, that we might "enjoy" the "lusts" of this life, inheriting eternal death instead, i.e. 'redeeming' us from Romans 7:14-25], so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ [in His obedience to His Heavenly Father in all things commanded]." 2 Corinthians 11:3
"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' themselves, i.e., 'justify' 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
