The Karl Marx In You (In Your Heart).
"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 it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 You, as a child of disobedience, i.e., using dialectic 'reasoning ('reasoning' from your "feelings"), i.e., through dialoguing with your "self" and with others 'justifying' your "self," can not see your hatred toward the father's/Father's authority as being evil because your love of "self," i.e., your love of ("lust" for) the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world is stimulating is "in the way," blinding you to the truth, i.e., to the deceitfulness and wickedness of your heart, i.e., to the Karl Marx in your heart.
The heart is in favor of the child's carnal nature over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, loving pleasure, that which is below (of the world) and hating restraint, that which is above (of the Father). "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
"Sense experience [sensuousness, i.e. the child's "lust" for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' being stimulated by the world, i.e., responding to the world, i.e., the situation according to his own carnal nature (approaching pleasure avoiding pain, including the pain of missing out on pleasure) thinking he is in control of his life (and the world)] 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 ["lust of the eyes"] and sensuous need ["lust of the flesh"], that is, only when it proceeds from Nature [from "all that is in the world"]." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) Karl Marx simply made "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and "the pride if life" the laws of nature, making them academic, i.e., science, using them to determine a persons worth. Therefore (since all sin), anyone against sin, i.e., "human nature" becomes irrational, therefore irrelevant.
"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)
"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
Karl Marx wrote: "To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') The Marxist, György Lukács wrote: "for the dialectical method the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws'." (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)
According to Marxism, not until children (through dialoguing with one another) are able to 'discover' their common nature of loving pleasure and hating restraint (the basis of common-ism) can they know reality—reality not only being the carnal pleasures which the world stimulates but the pleasure which comes with affirmation, i.e., "human relationship." "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)
Karl Marx explained it this way: "It is not individualism [the individual subject to God's and/or the parent's, bosses, etc., authority] that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society ["the group"] is the necessary framework through which freedom [from the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning] and individuality [to be one's "self," i.e., "of and for self," i.e., carnal, i.e., of the world only without having a guilty conscience] are made realities." (Karl Marx, in John Lewis, The Life and Teachings of Karl Marx)
According to Karl Marx, not until children are 'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority can they know their "self" as they 'really' are, of nature only. Karl Marx wrote: "Once the earthly family [with the children having to submit to their father's authority, i.e., having to humble and deny their "self" in order to do their father's will] is discovered to be the secret of the holy family [with the Son, and all following Him having to submit to His Heavenly Father's authority, i.e., having to humble and deny their "self" in order to do His will], the former [the earthly father's authority system, with children having to trust in and obey the father] must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated] in theory and in practice [in the children's personal thoughts and social actions (relationship with one another)]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)
Sigmund Freud had the same mindset. "'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 functions with a father's authority in the home, with the family now dialoging opinions to 'discover' what is right and what is wrong behavior for the 'moment']." "... the hatred against patriarchal suppression—a 'barrier to incest,' ... the desire (for the sons) to return to the mother—[which] culminates in the rebellion of the exiled sons, the collective killing and devouring of the father," (Sigmund Freud quoted in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: A philosophical inquiry into Freud)
Abraham Maslow wrote: "Marxian theory needs Freudian-type instinct theory [Freud considered all children sexually active] 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 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." "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)
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 his "self," i.e., as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life, i.e., carnal, i.e., of the world only]." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life) Hegel then wrote, sounding more like Karl Marx than Karl Marx himself (who was not yet born): "On account of the absolute and natural oneness of the husband, the wife, and the child [their common "lusting" after the pleasures of the world, including (and especially) their desire for approval from others (affirmation) and their common hatred toward restraint], where there is no antithesis [no "top-down," "right-wrong, "Mine, not yours" way of thinking and acting] of person to person or of subject to object, the surplus is not the property of one of them, since their indifference is not a formal or a legal one." ibid.
It is therefore imperative, according to Marxists (psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' Transformational Marxists) that all children (including those in adult bodies) be "encouraged" (pressured) to dialogue their opinions to a consensus in "group psychotherapy," facilitated, Transformational Marxist (soviet) meetings, in order for them to become themselves, Karl Marx in nature—'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority—so they can do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience, i.e., so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, i.e., so they can be "of and for self" and the world only.
The Berlin Wall did not come down because Communism was defeated. It came down because Communism (in the form of Transformational Marxism) had succeeded, using the consensus meeting to make all one in nature—in the image of Karl Marx—"building relationships upon self interest." i.e., upon the carnal nature of the child, i.e., thinking and acting according to the heart of man, loving pleasure and hating restraint (the restrainer)—you can see it in the say 'liberal's' react when they do not get their way. Marxism works (and fails) because Karl Marx resides in you, i.e., in your heart, waiting to be 'liberated' from the Father's authority, needing the "help" of a facilitator of 'change,' as the one in the garden in Eden, to accomplish the deed.
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;" 2 Timothy 3:1-4
"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
"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
"Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD." Jeremiah 17:5
"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' 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
If you do not "take care of" the Karl Marx in your children's heart, they will "take care of" you. Likewise, loving pleasure and hating restraint they will, via abortion, "take care of" your grandchildren. Genesis 3:1-6, i.e., the consensus process is all about negating Hebrews 12:5-11, i.e., the father's/Father's authority in order to negate Romans 7:14-25, i.e., the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning so the facilitator of 'change' can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity. "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)
Liberalism is all about Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité, i.e., opinions being dialogued to a consensus, i.e., the praxis of the French Revolution negating the principles of the American Revolution, i.e., liberty, under law (rule of law), i.e., individualism, under God. In 'liberating' our "self" from the father's/Father's authority we become victims of those who seduce, deceive, and manipulate us for their own pleasure and gain, losing our freedom (from their control over us) in the end.
"We know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." "If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." "'Now that we know how positive reinforcement works [dialoguing opinions to a consensus, i.e., dialoguing our feelings (our carnal desires of the 'moment') to a feeling of oneness ('discovering' through dialogue the common carnal desires that we can all agree on, thereby affirming ourselves, and working together, as one, in fulfilling them, we establish our carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., our "self" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., his/His restraints)], and why negative doesn't' [the father's/Father's authority to 1) give us commands and rules which go counter to and therefore restrain our carnal desires of the 'moment,' 2) reward us or bless us when we do what is right and obey, 3) chasten us when we do wrong and disobey, and 4) cast out those who disrespect i.e. who question and/or challenge his/His authority, i.e., who reject his/His restraints]... 'we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design. We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled [the manipulated] though they are following a code much more scrupulously [more government regulations and oversight (sight based management)] than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That's the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement—there's no restrain and no revolt. By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
It is taking place in your children's "group grade" classroom, 'liberating' the Karl Marx in your children's hearts, preparing them to question, challenge, defy, and attack your 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—"Bloom's Taxonomies")
"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
