"Estates and Distinctions."
"Education as yet is unable and unwilling to bring all estates and distinctions into its circle. Only Christianity and morality are able to found universal kingdoms on earth." (Karl Marx, The Holy Family)
While most people look at content, determining right and wrong behavior according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth they have learned, Karl Marx's focus was upon ways of thinking, called paradigms, from (one end of the spectrum) doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth (known as a Patriarchal paradigm, i.e., the father's/Father's authority system, i.e., the King and bourgeoisie), to doing and continuing to do wrong despite feeling bad, i.e., having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, with "feelings," i.e., the person's carnal desires of the 'moment' being the focus of life, yet continuing to recognize authority, just trying not to get caught (known as the Matriarchal paradigm, i.e., setting aside established commands, rules, facts, and truth for the 'moment' for the sake of initiating and sustaining relationships yet feeling bad afterwards while trying to 'justify' it, still sustaining the father's/Father's authority system, i.e., the peasantry), to (on the other end of the spectrum) right and wrong thinking, i.e., the father's/Father's authority system itself being wrong, making wrong, i.e., the person's carnal desires of the 'moment' right, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process, so that all people can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity (which was Karl Marx's paradigm, known as the Heresiarchal paradigm of 'change,' i.e., the proletariat and vanguard party). That being said, since "Christianity and morality" is based upon the Son's obedience to the Father, i.e., the Son humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining His "self" in order to do the Father's will, i.e., honoring the Father's authority (the father's/Father's authority system), demanding that all mankind follow Him, doing the same, i.e., doing the Father's will as well, "estates and distinctions" are, for Karl Marx, the recognition that the wife (having to submit her "self" to her husband's authority) wants to be her "self," doing what she wants, when she wants, and the children (having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order to do the father's [and their mother's] will), wanting to be their "self," doing what they want, when they want as well, what he called "estates" ("classes") and the talents, abilities, preferences, etc., that distinguish everyone from one another, what he called "distinctions," it is the father's/Father's authority system, i.e., "Christianity and morality" that prevent children, women, and even men from becoming their "self," thinking and acting according to their carnal nature, i.e., "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates.
"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
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')
According to Karl Marx, not until you negate the father's/Father's authority system in education, removing it from the classroom can children, women, and men become their "self," of and for the world only, "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, without having a guilty conscience. Until the classroom environment (curriculum) is 'changed,' the world can not be 'changed,' i.e., be 'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority system so all (including Karl Marx himself and all who think like him) can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity. As you will see, by replacing the father's/Father's authority system, i.e., the preaching of commands and rules to be obeyed, as given, the teaching of facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and the discussing of questions the students might have regarding the commands, rules, facts, and truth they are learning, at the teachers discretion, providing they deem it necessary, they have time, the students are able to understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority, with the students carnal desires of the 'moment' that the world ("the group") stimulates, dialoguing their opinions to a consensus in the classroom (there is no father's/Father's authority in an opinion, in dialogue, or in the consensus process, only the child's carnal nature, "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates), the students are 'liberated' from the father's/Father's authority system, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking their parent's authority when they get home from school (if they were not already doing that), putting into praxis Karl Marx's agenda (dream), negating the father's/Father's authority from the face of the earth.
"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)
All teachers are certified and all schools are accredited today (including private and Christian grade schools/high schools/Colleges/Universities) based upon their use of what are called "Bloom's Taxonomies" as their curriculum in the classroom. As documented (from "Bloom's Taxonomies" themselves)—exposed in my issue Teacher Training—"Bloom's Taxonomies" is the praxis of Marxism (the 'liberation' of the child's carnal nature from the father's/Father's authority) in the classroom, calling itself "academics." Even homeschooling material and coops are using it (don't be fooled).
"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
