Pleasure And Hate - Drugs and Violence.
A neurotransmitter called dopamine is a chemical our body naturally produces and 'liberates' or 'emancipates' into a small gap called a synaptic gap—a gap between our nerve endings—when we come into contact with (or think upon) an object of pleasure in the environment (real or imagined). It is the drug of choice when it comes to our carnal thoughts and actions of the day. It is not that God is against dopamine emancipation, He created it that we might enjoy His creation. It is that when it comes between Him and us (when we love it more than Him) it becomes wrong, i.e., sin, i.e., "lust."
"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
"From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts." James 4:1-3
"Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death." James 1:13-15
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." "... the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth;" (Genesis 6:5; 8:21)
In most cases more dopamine is emancipated into the synaptic gap when we are thinking about having the object of pleasure we desire ("the imagination of the thoughts of the heart") than when we actually have it. In fact, we (as a child) are not in love with the object (toy) we desire, we are in love with the dopamine it liberates in us. When the object (thing or person), i.e., that which is in the world stimulates dopamine emancipation in us (when we come into contact with it or imagine it), we are drawn toward it for more dopamine emancipation. In our carnal nature, while we say we love someone or something, in reality we love (covet) the dopamine emancipation they or it stimulates in us. Our natural tendency is therefore to control the object or person who stimulates dopamine emancipation in us in order to have more dopamine emancipation in the future. Just having (or imagine having) the object or person under our control stimulates dopamine emancipation within us. When we love it (dopamine emancipation) more than the one who gave it to us, i.e., God it is called "lust of the flesh," "lust of the eyes," and "pride of life."
"No servant 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." Luke 16:13
"Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." John 5:19
"For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Matthew 12:50
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6
Money, which is simply stored up dopamine emancipation, is not the problem. It is when we love it (money, i.e., stored up dopamine emancipation) more than the father/Father, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will. When we refuse to humble, deny, die to, discipline, control our "self" (set aside our desire for dopamine emancipation, i.e., refuse to detox our "self") in order (as in "old" world order) to do right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will we make pleasure (dopamine emancipation, i.e., our "feelings," i.e., our "self," i.e., our "self interest," i.e., "lust") the 'drive' and the 'purpose' of life. It is through dialogue (with our "self" and with others) we 'justify' our "self," i.e., we 'justify' our "lust of the flesh, "lust of the eyes," and our "pride of life," establishing our "self" (our love of dopamine emancipation, i.e., love of pleasure, i.e., our "sensuous needs," "sense perception," and "sense experience") over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will, making our "lust" for pleasure, i.e., dopamine emancipation (and the world which stimulates it) the medium through which we determine right from wrong, good from evil—making the father's/Father's authority, which gets in the way of pleasure (dopamine emancipation) "wrong," i.e., "evil," i.e., the object to be hated (and negated). The father's/Father's authority, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth and the child's carnal nature, i.e., "lusting" after dopamine emancipation, i.e., "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which are being stimulated by the world are antithetical to one another.
"To enjoy the present ["lust"] reconciles us to the actual [to our "self" and the world which stimulates dopamine emancipation]." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')
"Sense experience 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 and sensuous need, that is, only when it proceeds from Nature." (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) "Behavioral scientists" can only find their identity in the carnal nature of the child, i.e., in "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., in dopamine emancipation. Through their use of dialogue they 'justify' their "self," i.e., 'justifying' their "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates.'
"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)
"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
What the scriptures call "the lust of the flesh," "the lust of the eyes," and the "pride of life," Karl Marx, reclassified as "sensuous needs," "sense perception," and "sense experience," making our carnal nature, i.e., i.e., pleasure, i.e., dopamine emancipation, i.e., "lust" academic, i.e., the 'drive' of and the 'purpose' for life. (Karl Marx, MEGA I/3) When the object or person first stimulates dopamine emancipation in us 1) "sensuous need," we look for what stimulated it 2) "sense perception," and then we seek to control it so we can continue having the pleasure of dopamine emancipation it stimulates, hating whatever or whoever gets in the way 3) "sense experience." It is what "self interest" is all about. When others affirm ('justify') our "self interest," i.e., our love of dopamine emancipation we become intoxicated with, addicted to, and possessed with the pleasure which comes with affirmation, making it ("humanist/socialist relationship") the 'drive' and 'purpose' of life, hating anyone who gets in its way, accusing them of being hateful toward us (and others 'like' us) when they do so, i.e., when they restrain us (and therefore others 'like' us). With love of pleasure, i.e., "lust" for dopamine emancipation comes resentment toward restraint, i.e., hatred toward the father's/Father's authority.
"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature)
"I have found whenever I ran across authoritarian students [those who adhere to the father's/Father's authority] that the best thing for me to do was to break their backs immediately." "The correct thing to do with authoritarians is to take them realistically for the bastards they are and then behave toward them as if they were bastards." (Abraham Maslow, Maslow on Management)
"Nakedness is absolutely right. So is the attack on antieroticism, the Christian & Jewish foundations." (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)
All habitual drugs are tied to dopamine, either replicating it, emancipating it, or preventing its uptake. Instead of using chastening, i.e., the father's/Father's authority (teaching the child to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline his "self") to get the child off of drugs (detoxing him), the agenda today is to "help" him, through dialogue, focus upon another source for dopamine emancipation, i.e., upon "building relationship with others based upon common self interest," leaving "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life" in place, along with the hate of restraint (and the restrainer).
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do the father's/Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating the father's/Father's 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
Hate and violence comes when we can not attain the dopamine emancipation (have access to the object) we desire in the 'moment,' with hate and violence actually creating dopamine emancipation in the brain as well. Therefore we can not see our hate and violence as being evil since our love of pleasure, i.e., love of dopamine emancipation—being "good" in our eyes—blinds us to our hate and violence as being evil. Turning a "blind eye" to violence, especially when it serves our 'purpose' is evil, i.e., is an act of hate.
You, dialoguing with your "self," i.e., 'justifying' your "self," i.e., 'justifying' your love of pleasure (dopamine emancipation), "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world is stimulating, can not see your hatred toward the father's/Father's authority (questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking the father/Father and his/His authority) as being evil because your love of "self," i.e., your love of ("lust" for) pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," blinding you to the truth of the deceitfulness and wickedness of your heart, which is not just deceitful but "deceitful above all things" and not just wicked but "desperately wicked," willing to destroy anything that who gets in its way.
Pleasure (dopamine emancipation), "self," dialogue, hate, and violence go hand in hand. In dialogue we 'justify' our "self," i.e., we 'justify' our love of pleasure (dopamine emancipation) and our hate of restraint (and the restrainer), i.e., hate of missing out on the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates. Dialogue ties us to the world, i.e., our love of pleasure and hate of pain (which includes the pain of missing out on pleasure). When dialogue, pleasure (dopamine emancipation), "self" conflicts with doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., doing the father's/Father's will it becomes "lust," engendering hate and violence within us against restraint.
"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) Bringing dopamine emancipation (the affective domain), i.e., dialogue, i.e., the child's "self interest" into the classroom, making it the curriculum, automatically turns the children against their parent's authority. All "educators" are certified and schools accredited based upon their use of what are called "Bloom's Taxonomies" in the classroom, 'liberating' the children (students) from their parent's authority.
Bringing dialogue into an environment where we are to determine right and wrong, establish policy and law, makes the outcome subject to dopamine emancipation, i.e., to "self interest," i.e., to "self" 'justification,' i.e., to "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., to only that which "proceeds from Nature," i.e., is of the world. The moment the "church" brings dialogue into its midst, making it ("feelings," i.e., dopamine emancipation) the means whereby to determine right from wrong, it becomes apostate, turning against God's authority, i.e., the Word of God (and anyone who holds to it) when it gets (they get) in its (the "church's") way.
"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
The objective of the "new" world order—making dopamine emancipation, i.e., pleasure the standard for "good"—is to negate the father's/Father's authority, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process, therefore negating "lust" as being evil or wrong, making "lust" ("self interest") an essential part of "human nature," i.e., the "norm." In this way anyone who gets in the way of the "norm," i.e., in the way of dopamine emancipation, i.e., "lust," i.e., who humbles, denies, dies to, control, disciplines his "self" (detoxes his "self") in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, i.e., in order to do the father's/Father's will is labeled as being "neurotic," since he is going against "human nature," i.e., resisting 'change,' i.e., preventing, i.e., inhibiting or blocking dopamine emancipation.
"[We] must develop persons who see non-influencability of private convictions [those who hold onto the father's/Father's authority] in joint deliberations [in the facilitated, consensus, "group grade" "relationship building" classroom/meeting] as a vice rather than a virtue [as being "negative," i.e., "the problem" instead of "positive," i.e., contributing to the solution]." (Kenneth D. Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)
"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
It is the role of psychologists, i.e., "behavioral scientists," i.e., group psychotherapists, i.e., facilitators of 'change', i.e., Transformational Marxists to seduce, deceive, and manipulate all who come before them into dialoguing their opinions (their "feelings," i.e., love of dopamine emancipation) to a consensus (affirmation), using the method or formula of dialectic 'reasoning' ('reasoning' from/through dialogue, i.e., from/through their "feelings" of the 'moment, i.e., dopamine emancipation which is being stimulated by the world, i.e., by the situation, which is being manipulated by the facilitator of 'change') in order to turn them into chickens, rats, and dogs, i.e., "human resource," negating the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience in the process (called "the negation of negation" since the guilty conscience is "negative" to the child's carnal nature, getting in the way of dopamine emancipation which is "positive" to the child) in the group grade," "safe zone/space/place," soviet style, brainwashing, "Bloom's Taxonomy," affective domain classroom. Immanuel Kant, Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud (not knowing of dopamine emancipation in their day) had this same agenda in mind, 'liberating' the child's carnal nature (dopamine emancipation) from the father's/Father's authority ("self" restraint) so they could rule the world, doing wrong, disobeying, sinning (doing unconscionable things) with impunity—using the praxis of Genesis 3:1-6 in order to negate Hebrews 12:5-11, negating Romans 7:14-25 in the process (the real agenda).
"And for this cause [because men 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of pleasure (dopamine emancipation) 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
We discipline (chasten) our children to get them off the drug of "self," i.e., off their "lusting" after dopamine emancipation, teaching them to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline (detox) their "self" instead, in order to become mature. What we have today is a culture of children (in adult bodies) chasing after anything that or anyone who stimulates dopamine emancipation, hating anyone and anything that gets in their way, using violence (physical and verbal) in order to get their dopamine fix for the day—so they can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity (without having a guilty conscience).
