"Self Interest" Is "Self Preservation:"
(the "tyranny of the masses").
(Personal note.)

"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., having to set aside your carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline your "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's/Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating and striking out against the father's/Father's authority that "gets in the way," i.e. that prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9

You can not see your "self interest," which includes your hate of restraint, as being evil, i.e., "wicked" ("desperately wicked") because your love of pleasure ("self interest"), getting in the way, blinds you to it. Like a drug, pleasure (dopamine emancipation), i.e., "self interest" which the world stimulates blinds you to your hatred toward restraint, i.e., blinds you to your "wickedness" which is being expressed toward those who are preventing (or trying to prevent) you from having access to the drug, i.e., to pleasure (dopamine emancipation) when you are doing wrong, disobeying, sinning—making you not just "wicked" but "desperately wicked" in your effort (doing "whatever it takes") to attain it, keep it, or get it back.

"Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD." " Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:5, 7 "

"It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man." Psalms 118:8

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16

"And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15

"Self interest" is "self preservation." "Self interest," i.e., "self preservation" will show no mercy to you if and when you get in its way. "Building relationship" with others based upon common "self interest," for example: prospecting for gold with a "friend" can sound good (at first). But once you find gold you had better watch your back, your "friend's" "self interest" could cost you your life (thinking, i.e., reasoning with his "self" what he could do with it if he had it all—especially when he has other "friends," who he has "interest" in, who agree with him).

Dialoguing opinions to a consensus results in a "group of people" (students), uniting as "one," in preserving its "self," negating all who get in its way—called "the tyranny of the masses." It is where we find ourself today as a result of the "group grade" classroom, i.e., the use of "Bloom's Taxonomies" (Marxist curriculum) in the classroom. By incorporating the children's carnal "feelings," i.e., their likes and dislikes, i.e., their love of pleasure and hate of restraint, i.e., the "affective domain" ("Pandora's box") in the classroom curriculum the children's hate of the father's/Father's authority, i.e., hate of restraint is 'liberated,' i.e., 'justified' (affirmed) by one another, negating their having a guilty conscience (which the father's/Father's authority engenders) for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process, so they can do wrong, disobey (question, challenge, disregard, defy, attack authority), sin ("lust") with impunity. All schools today, i.e., pre-school, grade-schools, high-schools, undergraduate, graduate, Vo-Tec, Business, etc., (even, increasingly, home-schools), whether public, private, or "Christian" ("church" schools, including "youth groups" and "bible studies") incorporate the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process ("How do you feel," "What do you think," "What about your or your children's social life?") in their curriculum, accomplishing what Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud both had in mind, the negation of the father's/Father's authority in the children's ("the people's") thoughts and action, so they could be their "self," i.e., of and for the world only, establishing their "self" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., establishing their "feelings" over and therefore against established commands, rules, facts, and truth that get in the way of their carnal desires ("self interests") of the 'moment,' which the world (the situation, i.e., the classroom environment, i.e., "the group") stimulates, which "educators," i.e., facilitators of 'change,' i.e., psychotherapists manipulate, i.e., get paid to manipulate.

"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
