The Paranoia Of Socialists.
(Personal note.)

Dean Gotcher

 'Justifying' "self" before "the group" 'liberates' "self" from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., from personal accountability before God (which engenders a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning) so all can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, i.e., with "the group's" approval (affirmation), since it is being done or was done for the "good" of "the group," i.e., "the people," i.e., for "self."

Socialists can not see anything (find their identity) outside "the group." This is why global socialists equate individualism, under God to Fascism, i.e., national socialism. All forms of socialism (Fascism, Communism, Globalism) negate the father's/Father's authority, i.e., individualism, under God, i.e., personal accountability (being held accountable) for their thoughts and actions before God, making the individual accountable to "the group" instead, having to do so in order to initiate and sustain control over "the people." Even Hitler used "the group" in order to 'liberate' his "self" (his carnal thoughts and carnal actions) from accountability before God. It is in the carnal nature of mankind, "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world ("the group" or "the group" leader) stimulates, justifying' his "self," i.e., his common (collective) identity before one another (biological aka national socialism and/or behavioral aka global socialism) that socialists seek to overcome the guilty conscience (which the father's/Father's authority engenders) for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, doing so for the "good" of "the people," i.e., their "self."

"It is not individualism [the child having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline his "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, having to stand alone against "the group" when they are doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., "lusting"] that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him [makes him "neurotic"—caught between doing the father's/Father's will and doing his own will instead, when his will, i.e., his carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment,' and his father's/Father's will, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth are in conflict with one another]. Society ["human relationship based upon self interest," i.e., "building relationship" with others, based upon the child's carnal desires, i.e., one's "self interest," i.e., finding one's identity, i.e., "self" in the other, i.e., in "the group," i.e., in society] is the necessary framework through which freedom [from the father's/Father's authority] and individuality [to be "of and for self" and the world only] 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)

"As the Frankfurt School [Theodor Adorno, Erich Fromm, etc., including Kurt Lewin who edited their newspaper] wrestled with how to 'reinvigorate Marx', they 'found the missing link in Freud.'" (Martin Jay, The Dialectical Imagination: A History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research, 1923-1950)

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)

"Without exception, [children/students] enter group therapy [the "group grade" classroom] with the history of a highly unsatisfactory experience in their first and most important group—their primary family [the traditional home with parents telling them what they can and can not do]." "What better way to help [the child/the student] recapture the past than to allow him to re-experience and reenact ancient feelings [resentment, hostility] toward parents in his current relationship to the therapist [the "educator," i.e., the facilitator of 'change]? The ["educator," i.e., facilitator of 'change'] is the living personification of all parental images [takes the place of the parent]. Group [facilitators] refuse to fill the traditional authority role: they do not lead in the ordinary manner, they do not provide answers and solutions [teach right from wrong], they urge the group [the children/the students] to explore and to employ its own resources [to dialogue their "feelings," i.e., their desires and dissatisfactions of the 'moment' in the "light" of the situation, i.e., their desire for group approval (affirmation)]. The group [the children/the students must] feel free to confront the ["educator," i.e., the facilitator of 'change'], who must not only permit, but encourage, such confrontation [rebellion and anarchy]. He [the child/the student] reenacts early family scripts in the group and, if therapy [brainwashing—washing from the child's/student's brain (thoughts) respect for and fear of the father's/Father's authority] is successful, is able to experiment with new behavior, to break free from the locked family role [submitting to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will] he once occupied. … the patient [the child/the student] changes the past by reconstituting it [called role-playing]." (Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)

"The child takes on the characteristic behavior of the group in which he is placed. . . . he reflects the behavior patterns [paradigm] which are set by the adult leader of the group." (Kurt Lewin in Wilbur Brookover, A Sociology of Education)

"Change in methods of leadership is probably the quickest way to bring about a change in the cultural atmosphere of a group." "Any real change of the culture [paradigm] of a group is, therefore, interwoven with the changes of the power constellation within the group." (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, "frustration and regression: an experiment with young children" in Child Behavior and Development)

"Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself, 'What would my parents want me to do?' During the process of therapy the individual come to ask himself, 'What does it mean to me?'" (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)

"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." (Rogers, on becoming a person)

"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) It is in dialogue we discover our commonality with one another, i.e., our common "self interests" in each other, 'justifying' our "self," i.e., "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., what which we have in common, i.e., that which is "of the world" only.

"It is usually easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Bennie, Human Relations in Curriculum Change) The dynamics of "the group" ("group dynamics"), i.e., the persons desire for "the groups" approval (affirming his carnal desires) has a direct effect upon his thinking and acting.

"Part of the dialectics of the process of winning independence from parental authority lies in using the extrafamilial peer group as a foil to parental authority, particularly in the period of adolescence." (Bradford, Gibb, Benne, T-Group Theory and Laboratory Method: Innovation in Re-education)

"The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to the group." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Bennie, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)

"One of the most fascinating aspects of group therapy is that everyone is born again, born together in the group." (Yalom)

"Third-Force psychology is also epi-Marxian in these senses, i.e., including the most basic scheme as true-good social conditions [an environment void of the father's/Father's authority where children can "actualize" their "self" without fear of judgment or condemnation] are necessary for personal growth, bad social conditions [where children have to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order to do the father's/Father's aka their parents will] 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." "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)

"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture [their parent's/God's authority aka the father's/Father's authority]. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, Farther Reaches of Human Nature)

"Once the earthly family [with children having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according to the father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth] is discovered to be the secret of the Holy family [with the Son humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining his "self" in order to do the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according to the Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth], the former [the earthly father's authority, i.e., the system itself with children having to trust in (have faith in) and obey the father (their parents), their teacher, the laws of the land, etc.,] must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice [in the children's thoughts as well as in their actions—resulting in children no longer "fellowshipping" with one another based upon the father's/Father's (their parents/God's) commands, rules, facts, and truth but, through dialogue, "building relationship" with one another based upon their carnal nature, i.e., their carnal desires, i.e., their "self interests," i.e., their "lusts" of the 'moment,' 'creating' a "new" world order of "lawfulness without law," i.e., "lawlessness" where the child's carnal nature rules without parental restraint]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)

"'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 or has authority over his children in the home, forcing them to do right and not wrong according to his established commands, rules, facts, and truth that go against their nature, i.e., their carnal desires of the 'moment,' that the world stimulates]." His history is of civilization (what he based psychology on) is that of children who, loving the pleasures of the 'moment,' what he called "incest," hating the father's/Father's authority (restraint), what he called a "barrier to incest," not only "killed" the father but ate ("devoured") him as well. "... 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." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud)

"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

Rejecting the father's/Father's authority, socialists can only find identity in their "self," i.e., in their carnal nature, i.e., in "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," discovering, through dialogue, what they have in common with one another, negating the father's/Father's authority (personal accountability before God) and the guilty conscience which the father's/Father's authority engenders for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin (kill the unborn, elderly, innocent, righteous, and anyone else who gets in their way) with impunity (with affirmation, i.e., group approval). We can only 'justify' our "self" before one another, i.e., what we have in common with one another, our "lust of the flesh," "lust of the eyes," and "pride of life" since we have nothing in common with God, who holds us accountable for our common carnal thoughts and actions, "lest any man should boast." "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; not of works [what "good" we do for others, i.e., "the group" or even God], lest any man should boast." Ephesians. 2:8, 9 "For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:" Romans 7:18 "It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23 "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

"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
