The Love of the Child.
"If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." 1 John 2:15 "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
Unlike the love of the Father, the child's love (love of the child) is of and for the world, loving the pleasures of the 'moment,' i.e., the dopamine emancipation the world stimulates within him, resenting (hating) any restraint preventing (inhibiting or blocking) him from "enjoying" it. The child, by nature, is in love with the dopamine (pleasure) being 'liberated' within him by the object(s) of the world which stimulates its emancipation. He is not in love with the object itself. When it no longer stimulates dopamine emancipation within him he is no longer interested in it, his interest now being in some other object(s) stimulating dopamine emancipation within him instead. While the objects of pleasure are ever 'changing,' his "lust" for pleasure, i.e., love of dopamine emancipation, and resentment of restraint—hating whatever or whoever inhibits or blocks its emancipation—remains the same. This is the carnal nature of the child. Therefore the motto of the child is "approach pleasure and avoid pain," i.e., "love pleasure and hate restraint," "good" being whatever or whoever engenders pleasure ('liberates' dopamine) in him, "bad" or "evil" being whatever or whoever inhibits or blocks its emancipation, i.e., prevents its 'liberation,'
When 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." he was declaring pleasure the standard for "good," making the father/Father's authority, i.e., the Father's love the object to be remove from the world (negated) if man was to have "peace" (with his "self," i.e., his carnal nature) and "affirmation" (at-one-ness with those of and for the world only). (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life) Hegel wrote: "When a man has finally reached the point where he does not think he knows it better than others, that is when he has become indifferent to what they have done badly and he is interested only in what they have done right, then peace and affirmation have come to him." (G. F. W. Hegel, in one of the casual notes preserved at Widener) The dialoguing of opinions to a consensus accomplishes the deed, i.e., the 'liberation' of the child's/man's carnal nature from the father's/Father's authority, negating the father's/Father's authority in the child's/man's feelings, thoughts, and actions as well as in his relationship with others and the world, so all children/men can do wrong without having a guilty conscience, so that they can sin with impunity—having "no fear of God before their eyes."(Romans 3:18
When government is run by the consensus process (the soviet system), i.e., the nature of the child, the facilitator(s) of 'change' influences (manipulates) those who are present by asking them to be "positive," i.e., tolerant of everyone's opinion (an opinion carries no father's/Father's authority in it, only the persons "thoughts" of the 'moment,' which are subject to his "feelings" of the 'moment') and not "negative," i.e., holding to the father's/Father's position (prejudice) on issues, therefore the constellation of participants, setting policy according to their "self interest" of the 'moment,' make laws which are ever subject to 'change,' i.e., subject to the facilitator(s) of 'change' intended agenda, i.e., the negation of the father's/Father's authority in establishing policy (law). What laws the committee makes today, which you might agree with, can be changed by the next committee, with different people or the same people with different interests—putting you away. "Jurisprudence of terror takes two forms; loosely defined rules which produces unpredictable law, and spontaneous changes in rules to best suit the state." (R. W. Makepeace and Croom Helm, Marxist Ideology and Soviet Criminal Law) Karl Marx, the child within you, put it this way: "Laws must not fetter human life [get in the way of the child's carnal desire of the 'moment']; but yield to it; they must change as the needs and capacities of the people [the children's "felt needs," i.e., desires, i.e., "self interests" of the 'moment'] change." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')
"And for this cause [because children/men 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of pleasure more than God] 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 world]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
