"For one class to stand for the whole of society, another must be the class of universal offense and the embodiment of universal limits. A particular social sphere must stand for the notorious crime of the whole society, so that liberation from this sphere appears to be universal liberation. For one class to be the class par excellence of liberation, another class must, on the other hand, be openly the subjugating class." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right)

"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'/Father's authority to become as he was before the father's/Father's first command, rule, fact, or truth came into his life (separating him from his "self" and the world), of (and now for) "self" and the world only]." (Georg Hegel, System of Ethical Life)

"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')

By making the child's carnal nature, i.e., the child's love of pleasure, i.e., his or her love of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates the 'drive' of life, the 'purpose' of life becomes not only the augmentation of pleasure, i.e., the 'liberation' of the child's carnal nature from the father's/Father's authority, but also the negation of the father's/Father's authority which restrains, i.e., which, engendering a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning "gets in the way," preventing the child from being his or her "self," i.e., doing wrong, disobeying, sinning with impunity. The child, in disobedience to the father's/Father's authority, i.e., 'justifying' his or her "self" always sees himself/herself as being a victim when he/she can not "get his/her way"—not only being "repressed," i.e., prevented from being his/her "self" according to his/her carnal desires of the 'moment' but also "alienated," i.e., separated from the other children of the world, who, like him/her, love pleasure and hates restraint—who think and act like him/her.

A true victim is that person who has had that which is private, i.e., that which is no body else's business but his or her own, infringed upon (betrayed)—the basis of private convictions, private property, private business, ete.,—why we have 'limited' government, "rule of law," majority vote, unalienable rights, etc.,. Victim-ist's ('liberal's,' socialist's), as children of disobedience, always see themselves as victims, i.e., as being victimized by any who keep them from doing what they want, when they want, where they want, and with whoever they want, hating restraint, i.e., hating the father's/Father's authority, i.e., hating (and destroying) anyone who gets in their way.

"The dialectical method was overthrown—the parts were prevented from finding their definition within the whole." "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?)

"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 carnal thoughts and actions (behavior)—it is here that dialogue becomes the focus of attention, i.e., the means to 'change,' 'liberation' the child (the victim) from the father's/Father's authority]." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)

Discussion, which is formal, always proceeds from and leads to doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth. Dialogue, which is informal, always proceeds from and leads to our carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., our love of pleasure, which the world stimulates, 'justifying' our hate of restraint. Without dialogue, victim-ism, liberalism, socialism can not be initiated and sustained. This is why the classroom curriculum, from the 50's on, has 'shifted' from the preaching, teaching, and discussing (at the one in authorities' discretion) of commands, rules, facts, and truth (to be learned and obeyed), to the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, 'creating' a "safe place/zone/space," "be positive - not negative environment" where victim-ism, liberalism, socialism can be initiated and sustained.

"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,' i.e., his or her love of pleasure and hate of restraint 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]." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality)"

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)

"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)

Victim-ism begins with the heart, i.e., with the love of pleasure. This is why victim-ism, 'liberalism,' socialism always uses ('justifies') hate, i.e., revolution, i.e., violence (physical and/or emotional) as the means to the end.

"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating whoever prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' it desires]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9

Victim-ists, i.e., psychologists, group psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' Transformational Marxists, as a child of disobedience ('justifying' their "self") can not see their hatred toward the father's/Father's authority as being evil because their love of "self," i.e., their love of pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," 'justifying' their hate, blinding them to the truth, i.e., to the deceitfulness and wickedness of their heart. While the father/Father chastens those who do wrong, disobey, sin, casting out any who challenge, i.e., reject his/his authority, victim-ists, liberals, socialists, in order to create a "healthy world," in order to create a "healthy man," have to remove, i.e., censor, imprison, and kill any who get in their way.

"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

Refusing to repent, all victim-ists can do is get others to join them—perceive themselves as being victims as well—'justifying' their "self"-ish, why-ning way, rejecting any fact or truth that gets in their way.

"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' 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

"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
