Two Roads: Didactic or Dialectic and their praxis - Part 2

To obey or to circumvent?—that is the question.

by Dean Gotcher  -  October 10, 2007

L. S. Vygotsky, in his book Mind in Society: the development of higher psychological development wrote “to study something means to study it in the process of change; that is the dialectical method’s basic demand.” "If you don't change, you are going to be left behind" seems to be the banner displayed in every church today. This change is not directed to your heart in relationship to God (repent of your sin—quit your justifying for your justification is found in Christ and in him alone), in other words the crisis of life is not between you and God, but rather the focus is upon relationship with others (situation ethics—justified compromise for your justification is found in what the group thinks, in the consensus) where the crisis of life is between you and others. This shift in crisis is the shift in paradigm. “The eclipse of a way thinking cannot take place without a crisis.” Antonio Gramsci The shift in crisis solution (responding to "changing" times) is a change from evaluating the situation from God's position, then repenting and depending upon him, to the evaluating of situations, the crisis of the time, from the groups position, then confessing before others of your individualism (hoarding of resources, including your feelings) and the need for your dependence upon others (the group). The shift is from "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19) to the village shall supply all your "felt" needs according to the resources it has at hand (distributed to you according to their perception of your "felt" needs, you hug them and then they hug you, maybe). "Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD." Jeremiah 17:5

Are you standing in the way?

Jesus called himself "the way." The early church was called "the way." Both praxised the way of obedience to God, even to death. The "way" being presented today is that of seeking common ground through sensation or feelings (how we make one another feel). Marcuse saw it this way: “... the aesthetic dimension and the corresponding feeling of pleasure ... is the center of the mind ... medium [whereby] nature [ i.e. sensuousness] becomes susceptible to freedom, necessity to autonomy [con-sensuous determined laws, i.e. where sensuousness and morality are synthesized, the emerging synthesis is synergy: "Partnership is the same as synergy. Synergy can be defined as the resolution [synthesis] of the dichotomy between selfishness and unselfishness (altruism)." God says humble and deny yourself, not to worship or sacrifice yourself. "The problem for the accountants is to work out some way of putting on the balance sheet the amount of synergy in the organization, the amount of time and money and effort that has been invested in getting groups to work together." Abraham Maslow Maslow on Management].” He identified, as did others, that Kant's Critique of Judgment, his aesthetic dimension, was the pathway out from under God's law (seen as repression since there is no intent in diaprax to repent) and the pathway to finding peace in mankind's ever-changing, ever-common laws of the flesh (freedom to be one's self in harmony with others). “These archetypes envisioned the fulfillment of man and nature, not through domination and exploitation, but through release of inherent libidinal forces [the sensations of the flesh: touch, taste, smell, sight, sound].” (Marcuse) Marcuse wrote: “... (O)n the basis of Kant’s theory, the aesthetic function becomes ... the philosophy of culture ... a non-repressive civilization, in which reason is sensuous and sensuousness rational ... [according to Schiller this gives hope to] the possibility of a new reality principle .” From this foundation the transformational Marxists, socio-psychologists, justify their diabolical dialectical praxis. Total Quality Management, Total Quality Leadership, Outcome Based Education, School-to-Work, DARE, COPS, HMO, Church Growth, Emerging Church, etc. are built upon this "secularized Satanism, intellectualized witchcraft," "sin is in!" foundation. Those who follow "the way" of Christ Jesus are standing in the way, standing in the way of the world, that is. The worlds attitude is "Get out of our way or we will annihilate you." Of course they say they are doing it in "love"—Eros.

The pathway to "peace"
The "logical outgrowth" of diaprax
It is not how far down the road you have traveled, it is the road that you are taking.

"And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." John 1:5
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27
"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." Matthew 10:34
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Mathew 7: 13, 14

The Tower of Babel and God's obstruction to peace on earth:
"The dialectical method was overthrown―the parts were prevented from finding their definition within the whole."
Marx The Holy Family

If man is ever to find "freedom," Marcuse believed that the absence of authoritarian domination, judgment, and repression must be actualized in both the individual and society, where both subject (man, children) and object (God, parents) must build relationship through the use of discourse (anti-revelation), where differing parties must focus on the identification of common "felt" needs, desires ,and attributes and common means of "actualizing" them; “... the autonomy of the subject is to have an ‘effect’ in the objective reality, and the ends that the subject sets for itself must be real [attainable by all, i.e. carnal].” This very praxis negates any voice as worthy of consideration if it speaks outside the naturally attainable desires, "felt" needs, of the moment, in other words it must be apprehensible by natural man and can not be above his discursive abilities in the moment—this affectively negates revelation. The child's "Why?" (discourse, pathway toward the satisfaction of sensuous needs, i.e. freedom), to the parents "Not" (categorical imperative, pathway of repression), must become accepted as the pathway of deliverance, both for God and man, parent and child, owner and worker, teacher and student etc. (the public private partnership). Any "authority figure" who does not or can not participate in this discourse (willingness to change, to see it differently, to perceive it outside God's, parent's, position) must be regarded as irrational, unreal, and therefore irrelevant. He and his laws (commands) would therefore become negated. This would not only free the "church" from an autocratic God but also his autocratic law, freeing man from both the Patriarch (that which is above, external repression) and his own conscience (that which is below, internal repression), freeing all from that which is above. Thereby the distinction between sacred and secular become blurred if not moribund.

“God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority.” Theodore Adorno The Authoritarian Personality

"The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents." (Brown) Karl Marx understood this link when he wrote “Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly family the former must itself be annihilated, both in theory and in practice.” Karl Marx Feuerbach Thesis #4 In other words, once you realize that the earthly parents, who give commands to their children and chastens them when they disobey, praxis the same paradigm as God, who gives commands to his children and chasten them when they disobey ("Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them." Colossians 3:5-7), the traditional parent paradigm must be neutralized, marginalized and removed—annihilated. Since God, to Marx, was illusionary, children must come to see and respond to parental authority as illusionary. This is a praxis (system, practice, purpose) which would eventually destroy the traditionally family paradigm (patricide) and thereby negate a Godly paradigm in the mind of the individual—brainwashing, brain detachment. This would also sanitize the community of any patriarchal praxis, whereby the "village" would refuse its exercise in all policy situations, from the home to the highest political offices. This is the purpose of a soviet system. Thus, any person continuing to praxis a patriarchal paradigm would be considered neurotic. Any effort they might make to support their didactic praxis, by cautioning others of the dialectical praxis, would be seen as divisive. And any effort they would make to propagate the praxis of a patriarchal paradigm—"Do it my way or else," producing a sense of guilt and fear of judgment upon others—would be seen as an act of hate.

“Freud commented that only through the solidarity of all the participants could the sense of guilt be assuaged.” Norman O. Brown Life against Death

"One of the most fascinating aspects of group therapy is that everyone is born again, born together in the group."
Irvin D. Yalom Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy

“It is not individualism that fulfills the individual, on the contrary it destroys him. Society is the necessary framework through which freedom and individuality are made realities… only in a socialist society.” Karl Marx

According to Marcuse “... the origin of repression leads back to the origin of instinctual repression ... early childhood.” In other words, the enforced commands of parents (negative force field) repress the child's natural urges which drive him (natural inclination), as the environment draws him (positive force field), into discovering his true identity and purpose in the world, causing a "self-environmental dialectical rift," what Freud called neurosis and Marx called alienation and reification. “... the ‘external restrictions’ which first the parents and then other societal agencies have imposed upon the individual ‘interjected’ into the ego and become its ‘conscience’; henceforth, the sense of guilt permeates the mental life.” “The id carries the memory traces of the dominion ... forward into every present future: it projects the past into the future.” (Marcuse) Brown defined the difference between the conscience and what Freud called the 'super-ego': “What we call ‘conscience’ perpetuates inside of us our bondage to past objects now part of ourselves: the super-ego ‘unites in itself the influences of the present and of the past.’” “Eros is fundamentally a desire for union with objects in the world.” “Eros is the foundation of morality.” (Brown)

While the superego finds morality within social sensuousness (Eros), the conscience finds morality above both individual (self) and societal (environment) sensuousness. The later is caused as a result of a traditional family structure, which must be annihilated for the expressed purpose of initiating and sustaining a world unity and peace built upon Eros—"making love not war." A "change agent" must properly identify what it is he wants to change, or annihilate, before he begins the change process. The following quotation explains what it is that needs to be identified and annihilated if it can not be changed. “Social control is most effective at the individual level. The personal conscience is the key element in ensuring self-control, refraining from deviant behavior even when it can be easily perpetrated.” “The family, the next most important unit affecting social control, is obviously instrumental in the initial formation of the conscience and in the continued reinforcement of the values that encourage law abiding behavior.” “... social control is now often more dependent on external control [the village and the police state], than on internal self-control [the individual and the family].” Dr. Robert Trojanowicz The meaning of “Community” in Community Policing Trojanowicz Dr. Trojanowicz was noted for his development of the Community Oriented Police System (COPS), a soviet structured policing procedure, now a standard for police training across America. He then acknowledges the necessity to place the community between the child and the parent, if a globalization of the community is to be actualized. "The theme underlying much of the research is that once you can identify a community, you have discovered the primary unity of society ABOVE the level of the individual and the family that can be mobilized to take concerted action to bring about POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE." Dr. Robert Trojanowicz, et al. (emphasis added) Thus "positive social law" (collective man) determines worth, not a voice above man's common "felt" needs. No longer God or any objective force (law) above the common human experience is permitted jurisdiction in setting social policy. This is the difference between Lex-Rex and Rex-Lex (law above man—conscience above Eros—and man above law—Eros above conscience), the difference between a constitutional republic and a democracy, the difference between rule by principles (Truth) and rule by the mob (feelings) i.e. you either persuade with facts or influence through feelings.

In the book, which I call "A Cookbook on Humans," Human Relations in Curriculum Change, edited by Kenneth Benne, we find the the outcome of a dialectical praxis, where the man who is based on persuasion (knowing) must be replaced (negated) by the man who is based on influence (thinking through one's feelings). “We must develop persons who see non-influencability of private convictions[*] in joint deliberations as a vice rather than a virtue.” Kenneth Benne Human Relations in Curriculum Change * people with principles, not swayed by opinions of men, deductive in thought and not easily or quickly moved by inductive "reasoning." "The ideal of democratic [globalist, socialist, communist, environmentalist] deliberation is an intelligent and uncoerced [anti-patriarch] consensus concerning what should be done. This consensus will attempt to incorporate the valid [social, materialistic] insights and values of all parties in the conflict. The validity of these various insights and values is to be tested [dialectically evaluated—looked at through "neo-Marxist lens"] by the common study, deliberation, and discussion of the group and ultimately by the consequences of the common plan [negation of patriarchal leadership in setting policy] as it works out in action [sanitization of patriarchal praxis from the social praxis] and as these consequences are evaluated by the common judgment of the group [what the "group think"s]. It cannot be stressed too emphatically that the ideal goal of democratic co-operation is a consensus in the group concerning what should be done—a consensus based on and sustained by the deliberation of the group in the planning, execution, and evaluation of the common action of the group [a soviet method of policy making-used to neutralize, marginalize and remove patriarchal outcomes]. No other method of social control depends so crucially on the deliberation of the whole group concerned in resolving the conflicts ["right" vs. "wrong" i.e. the conscience] which for the time impede and prevent community of action [commun-ism]. And, as a corollary, no other method of social control depends so centrally for its effective working-out upon the habituation and responsible discipline [brainwashing] of all of its members in conscious methods of deliberation and discussion." ibid.

The Enemy Within
Trafficking with the enemy ... collaborating with and giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
What every person does when they come to a consensus with a facilitator, over social issues, in a diverse group, seeking common ground through discourse (to praxis a soviet system to solve public-private, individual-social problems).

It is not the problem being solved which is at issue here, it is the paradigm being used to resolve it. Jesus needed food to stay alive, yet he refused to go into discourse with Satan on how to obtain it. He refused to praxis a dialectical, heresiarchal, inductive paradigm. The trickery of those who attempt to initiate and sustain a dialectical paradigm is their relentless effort to inject themselves into the middle of a conflict as agents of mediation between opposing positions for the sake of all parties involved. Without the heat of a crises they can not function in stealth. All have had training in presenting the "appropriate answers" to the "appropriate questions" which guarantee the "appropriate information" being introduced and used in the "group think" meeting, to guarantee the "appropriate method" being used to set policy and make decisions. The "appropriate outcome" is the praxis of the dialectical paradigm, the negation ("annihilation") of a patriarchal paradigm.

A Federally funded book on how this is done reads: A "change agent... should know about the process of change, how it takes place and the attitudes, values and behaviors that usually act as barriers.... He should know who in his system are the 'defenders' or resisters of innovations [innovation is the code word for change of ones paradigm to a dialectical, relativistic, humanistic paradigm]." Ronald Havelock The Change Agents Guide to Innovation in Education 1973 Carl Rogers pushed for the same dialectical paradigm "What we need to learn, it seems, are ways of gaining acceptance for a humanistic person-centered venture in a culture more devoted to rule by authority." Carl Rogers Freedom To Learn FOR THE 80’S in his chapter Some Disappointments in Innovation A Pattern of Failure As Abraham Maslow wrote: "We don’t know the answers to the question: What proportion of the population is irreversibly authoritarian [non-innovative, believers]?" Abraham Maslow Maslow on Management The benchmark Federal document, authorizing the criterion for the use of federal grants in all educational institutions, reads: “During the period of innovation, an environment is invisible. The present is always invisible because the whole field of attention is so saturated with it. It becomes visible only when is has been superseded by a new environment [ a new paradigm]." Federal Education Grant, Dec. 1969 Behavior Science in Teacher Education Program p. 237 In Theodor Adorno's book, The Authoritarian Personality, the book used to justify the use of Freud and Marx in the American class room, reads: “Another aspect of traditionalism is the tendency to oppose innovations or alterations of existing politic‑economic forms.” (Adorno)

The two roles of the facilitator are: 1) get everyone to think global (environmental) through the use of global or environmental crisis; 2) get them to act local, to question all local authorities who prevent a global focus, to question the authority of those who do not look outside the home, the community, the nation, for answers to their problems. These people can be identified through their use of the language of restrain (belief, "good" vs. "evil") and their use of actions of resistance (patriarchal paradigm). This dialectical agenda is being used all around the world today. "Former" communist Estonia's "new" education program promotes this same globalist agenda (disguised as local):

"Robert Young sees Habermas [*a Marxist-see below] speaking on macroeducational questions and on 'learning levels' of societies and bringing in as the main macroproblem characteristic the problem of difference (that roots in the history of globalisation of culture and communication). This idea corresponds to the idea of Learning Estonia - where the high innovation capacity and integration on the global and local level is one of the key-assumptions. 'But the microproblem is the problem of critique. This problem manifests itself as the problem of interpretation, dialogue and, in some sense 'relatively autonomous', praxis for intellectuals and professionals, including teachers and learners' (Young, p 21). The scenario-development process itself is already appeared to be the strong voice of critique. And as the scenario-studies have become the entire part of different teacher training courses in Tallinn Pedagogical University and in in-service training and in the big projects as 'Quality-School of Estonia' (40 school-teams and 40 consultants), it works in teacher discourse, and shows the signs to become one of narratives to 'approve or try out the direction of progress' in everyday (pedagogical) life."

This article also promotes the use of current educational practices in America (dialectical education) as the proper method for globalization. Recognizing Hilda Taba, a Communist from Estonia who became a popular innovator in the globalization (communization) of the America education system, it reads:

"The main ideas of J. Käis pedagogy were 1) integration of the different ideas of western innovative pedagogy into one system; 2) recognition of only such ideas of western innovative pedagogy which can be directly applied in public school. (Inge Unt 'Impact of American Progressive Education on the Didactic system of Johannes Käis. Hilda Taba`s Article 'Governing Directions in American Education' in Jubilee Conference Hilda Taba - 90. Invited Addresses and Reports, Tartu 1992, p 142 - 147, 144). His model to put his innovations into practice involved step-by step movement from idea and its integration into one system to textbooks and worksheets system, actual introduction into school practice via teachers in-service training and feedback system. " ibid

This same agenda is expressed in Richard Paul's works in America: “Only by bringing out the child’s own ideas in dialogical and dialectical settings can the child begin to reconstruct and progressively transcend concepts [to negate the patriarchal paradigm, by questioning their parents authority locally as well as thinking globally, environmentally, cosmically, i.e. thinking "outside the box."].” Richard Paul Critical Thinking Handbook Just getting the next generation to rebel against their parents would produce anarchy and destruction, they had to at the same time be re-aligned within groups to the global agenda through their discourse with others on social issues outside their home, county, state, and nation. “In fact, a large part of what we call “good teaching” is the teacher’s ability to attain affective objectives through challenging the student’s fixed beliefs [questioning their parents paradigm] and getting them to discuss issues [collective paradigm].” Benjamin Bloom Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2 Affective Domain p. 54 This is something the traditional, patriarchal paradigm would not knowingly permit.

*"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." "the revolution that must occur is the reaction of suppressed life, which will visit the causality of fate upon the rulers." [patricide; annihilate the patriarchal paradigm] "Therefore the dialectic of the moral life must repeat itself until the materialist spell that is cast upon the reproduction of social life, the Biblical curse of necessary labor, is broken technologically." Jürgen Habermas Knowledge & Human Interest, 1968, publ. Polity Press, 1987. Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory emphasis added

The annihilation of the traditional home.
The emancipation of hedonism.
(How homosexuality, lesbianism, pedophilia, bestiality etc. is taking over America and the world, with religious support.)

“While adult sexuality serves the socially useful purpose of breeding children, it is for the individual in some sense an end in itself as a source of pleasure – according to Freud, the highest pleasure.” (Brown)

"But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth." Titus 5:6

Marcuse saw a hope, which Freud did not, in how mankind could overcome the repressive cultural condition of domination, a condition which found its origin in obedience to God, the traditional home, and the conscience. “The historical possibility of a gradual decontrolling of the instinctual development [the "decontrolling" of the conscience over the id; i.e. let's be positive (love the creation, love pleasure) and not negative (love the creator, love God)] must be taken seriously, perhaps even the historical necessity – if civilization is to progress to a higher stage of freedom.” (Marcuse). This "higher stage of freedom" carries with it some calamitous concerns for mankind. It carries with it a mandate for the liberation of behavior which God calls abomination: homosexuality, lesbianism, pedophilia, bestiality, all that which is highly esteemed among men. “Non-repressive order is possible only if the sex instincts can generate lasting erotic relations among mature individuals ... a ‘libidinal rationality’ which ... promotes progress toward higher forms of civilized freedom.” "The road to 'higher culture' leads through the true love of boys (όρζως παιδεραστειν)." translated by B. Jowett as "under the influence of true love." Consider the fact that Freud's mythological Greek hero was Orpheus who "... set the example for the people of Thrace of giving his love to tender boys, and enjoyed the springtime and first flower of their growth.'" Orpheus is the Greek figure who represents "... the introduction of homosexuality," the unifying of all things natural.

"I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." John 8: 38-45

"He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour." John 12: 25, 26

"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

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 7:21

"For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." John 12: 49, 50

“‘Every renunciation ... becomes a ... conscience; every fresh abandonment of gratification increases its severity and intolerance ... every impulse of aggression which we omit to gratify is taken over by the super-ego and goes to heighten its aggressiveness (against the ego).’ ‘That which began in relation to the father ends in relation to the community.’” Freud Civilization and Its Discontents, 1949 in Herbert Marcuse's book Eros and Civilization

"Higher Civilization"

"And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins." John 8:23, 24

In the dialectical praxis, where "as above, so below" and "as below, so above" become actualized, this "higher civilization," as Marcuse calls it, must be grounded not only upon Marx's sociological praxis but also upon Freud's psychological praxis. “Freud ... compares the attitude of civilization toward sexuality.” “... lasting erotic relations among mature individuals ... a ‘libidinal rationality’...” (Marcuse). Freud saw the conflict in civilization as one where sex (the sensuous: touch, taste, sight, smell, sound) plays the determinant agent “‘... The conflict between civilization and sexuality is caused by the circumstance that sexual love is a relationship between two people,...” "'... whereas civilization is founded on relations between large groups of persons. (... the effort) to combine organic substances into ever larger unities,’ to ‘establish ever greater unities and to preserve them thus―in short, to bind together?’” Freud Civilization and Its Discontents (Marcuse). Freud then reveals his true sexual bias: “‘In no other case does Eros so plainly betray the core of his being, his aim of making one out of many; but when he has achieved it in the proverbial way through the love of two human beings, he is not willing to go further.’” ibid. (bold added) In other words a patriarch paradigm (procreation—husband, wife) predominates with mankind and not a matriarchal/heresiarchal paradigm (adulterous-homosexual culture) As Marcuse explains: “... according to Freud, the drive toward ever larger unities belongs to the biological-organic nature of Eros itself.” “This dialectic constitutes the unexplored and tabooed core of Freud’s metapsychology.”

"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 1:14-15

"For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." Romans 7:18, 25

"As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 15: 9-14

"Will the real Sigmund Freud please step forward."

"Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith:"
Titus 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

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach." 1 Timothy 4:1, 11

"Freud noted that … patricide and incest … are part of man’s deepest nature."
Irvin Yalom Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy

The pathway of repression in civilization, according to Freud's fable, is caused by a patriarchal figure. “The primal father, ... the archetype of domination, [who] initiates the chain reaction of enslavement, rebellion, and the reinforced domination which marks the history of civilization.” (Marcuse). According to Freud, the sequence of "historical" events which initiated repression began when the sons sought sexual relations (sensual pleasure: touch, taste, sight, sound, smell—it is important to note this is not for the purpose of procreation, but for the satisfaction of "felt" needs, urges) with their mother (triggering events which led up to the Oedipus complex). According to Marcuse, “... the prehistory of the sense of guilt ... has ‘its origin in the Oedipus complex and was acquired when the father was killed by the association of the brothers.’ [the brotherhood, the fraternity]” According to Freud the sons kill the father to regain sensuous relationship with the mother, which was forbidden by the father, but their praxis of domination produces guilt within them resulting in their establishing laws of "repression" upon themselves and their clan, separating others from gaining sensuous relationship ("self-actualized 'felt' needs") with the mother. As a result civilization was created: "... original domination becomes eternal, cosmic, and good, and in this form guards the process of civilization.” “The ‘historical rights’ of the primal father are restored.” (Marcuse) Supposedly, with the expansion of the guilty conscience, which followed the sons killing of their father, “[t]he despot-patriarch has succeeded in implanting his reality principle in the rebellious sons.” (Brown) The patriarchal paradigm, the father figure, i.e. the top-down husband-wife-children hierarchal institute, the bourgeois (the middle-class establishment), dominate again the matriarchal paradigm, the mother i.e. mother-earth or natural resources, thereby preventing the heresiarchal paradigm, the adolescent, the proletariat (the lower class), from attaining self-actualization, i.e. the praxis of incest, a sibling-mother orgiastic consensus. Instead of bending your knee before God (fear God) you now bend your knee before the village (fear man) for your daily "felt" needs.

"And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." Mark 8: 34-38

Jude 1:4-25

Memory becomes a key factor, either continuing repression-domination or eliminating it, depending upon how memory is defined. According to dialectical reasoning, memory, when applied to the past standards of civilization, acts as an agent of repression, but when applied to the present "felt" needs of society, the carnal inclinations of the flesh, the "Great Refusal," it acts as an agent of "deliverance." It becomes the pathway of salvation. “If the guilt accumulated in the civilized domination of man by man can ever be redeemed by freedom, then 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." It is the memory of innocence (unrestrained Eros) which draws man again to eat from the forbidden tree. "...the pleasure principle is not redeemed ... liberated [because t]he sense of guilt is sustained...‘the consequence of uncommitted aggression ...,” (Brown) In other words, it is not enough to remove the patriarchal from society, his importance must also be removed (washed) from one's thought process, giving him recognition results in the toleration of intolerance, i.e. the acceptance of absolutes, the unquestioned obedience to authority. The "great refusal" (mans carnal nature, the laws of the flesh) triggers the questioning of everything which inhibits its actualization. “Some tolerant people are fighters. . . they are intolerant of intolerance.... Whether the tolerant person is militant or pacifistic, he is very likely to be liberal in his political views.” (Adorno)

With the aid of psychoanalysis, Marcuse saw memory (the "ought"—Eros restrained but subconsciously the desire retained) as a apparatus to be used in assisting mankind out of the repressive standards of the present civilization. “The rediscovered past yields critical standards which are tabooed by the present.” “... the restoration of memory is accompanied by the restoration of the cognitive content of phantasy.” “... psychoanalytic theory recaptures the strict truths of daydreaming and fiction.” "Memory," the law of the flesh, therefore, is an organ, a truth, which remembers currently suppressed carnal urges of past erotic acts of childhood, natural acts which were suppressed by parent standards. Thus it serve as a tool for the therapist, as it did for Satan in the Garden in Eden. “If memory moves into the center of psychoanalysis as a decisive mode of cognition, this is far more than a therapeutic device; the therapeutic role of memory derives from the truth value of memory.” “Its truth value lies in the specific function of memory to preserve promises and potentialities [love and support by the parent and carnal hopes] which are betrayed and even outlawed by the mature, civilized individual, but which he had once been fulfilled in his dim past and which are never entirely forgotten.” “... all thinking ‘is merely a detour from the memory of gratification ... memory of gratification is at the origin of all thinking, and the impulse to recapture past gratification is the hidden driven power behind the process of thought.” (Marcuse). Brown writes about memory as a cause for repression, when it is used to retain patriarchal standards: “The core of the neurosis of individuals lay in the ‘memory-traces of the experiences of former generations.’” All this has changed, as several generations have praxised the dialectical process in their homes. Irvin Yalom writes: "The current generation is the first in the history of the world which has nothing to learn from grandparents;" Irvin Yalom Theory and Practice and Group Psychotherapy Thomas Kuhn writes “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.” Kuhn quoting Max Planck’s famous dictum. Thomas Kuhn The Structure of Scientific Revolution

Excerpts from the mind of Freud reveal the use of phantasy as a tool to activate "memory" “‘... phantasies of all person ... infantile tendencies ... the sexual feeling of the child for the parents.... the attraction of the son for the mother, and of the daughter for the father.... with the overcoming and rejection of these ...incestuous phantasies, ... one of the most painful psychic accomplishment of puberty; ... the breaking away from the parental authority, ... opposition between the new and old generation ... important for cultural progress.’” Freud Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex The language of phantasy "dream language" is the language of "ought." Maslow in his book The Farther Reaches of Human Nature wrote, "We have to study the conditions which maximize ought-perceptiveness. Oughtiness is itself a fact to be perceived. If we wish to permit the facts to tell us their oughtiness, we must learn to listen to them in a very specific way which can be called Taoistic. Discovering one’s real nature is simultaneously an ought quest and an is quest. An 'Ought-Is-Quest' is a religious quest in the naturalistic sense. Is becomes the same as ought. Fact becomes the same as value. The world which is becomes the world which ought to be." Maslow. Karl Marx recognized the same nature in mankind: “In short, philosophy as theory finds the ‘ought’ implied within the ‘is’, and as praxis seeks to make the two coincide.” Joseph O’Malley, summing up Marx in Marx's work Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'

Marcuse wrote that: “Phantasy ["ought"] plays a most decisive function in the total mental structure: it links the deepest layers of the unconscious with the highest products of consciousness, the dream with the reality [the 'ought' with the 'is' negating the 'not,' a circumvention of restraining commands] ... the perpetual but repressed ideas of the collective and individual memory, the tabooed images of freedom.” “Phantasy is cognitive in so far as it preserves the truth of the Great Refusal, ... in so far as it protects, ... the aspirations for the integral fulfillment of man and nature ... the ‘lower depth’ of instinctual gratification assumes a new dignity.” Phantasy “... unit[s] the whole person, the universal and particular under pleasure.” (Marcuse) Perversions, according to Marcuse “show a deep affinity to phantasy” since phantasy is “free from reality-testing” and “subordinated to the pleasure principle alone” and can be aroused through “artistic imagination.” (Imagination-"the act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or never before wholly perceived in reality" Merriam-Webster Dictionary) Phantasy “links perversions with the images of integral freedom and gratification.” (Marcuse)

“Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

The "animalization" of the traditional home.
Redefining man as a "social animal."

"And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him." Genesis 2:18

Therefore, according to Brown, "Human consciousness can be liberated from the parental (Oedipal) complex [sense of guilt] only be being liberated from its cultural derivatives, the paternalistic state and the patriarchal God." The reason for the sense of guilt, so prevalent in western civilization, Brown writes: "... appears to be historically connected with the rise of patriarchal religion (for the Western development the Hebrews are decisive)." (Brown) The sons (pleasure seeking sons) are first driven off by the father. Their praxis, their natural desire to "relate sensuously" with their mother was seen by the father as perverse. Freud used the phrase "polymorphous-perverse" in describing the child-mother praxis (matriarchal paradigm) in light of the father praxis (patriarchal paradigm). “Children are polymorphously perverse. . . . by the standards of normal adult sexuality” (Brown) since they naturally utilize “all ... the sex instincts [touch, taste, sight, smell, sound] ... which do not serve or prepare for the procreative function.” All such “... perversions thus express rebellion against the subjugation of sexuality under the order of procreation, and against the institutions which guarantee this order.” (Marcuse) Brown put it this way: “The discarded elements of infantile sexuality [all body parts] are, judged by the standards of normal adult sexuality, perverse [erotic activities] . . . if they are pursued as substitutes [not used toward procreation].” Looking at it from the child's position Brown writes “Normal adult sexuality, judged by the standard of infantile sexuality, is an unnatural restriction of the erotic potentialities of the human body.”

This is the neo-Marxist (Freud and Marx) lens, those who now "serve" us in government, use to determine right and wrong behavior. Therefore according to Brown “Parental discipline, religious denunciation of bodily pleasure, . . . have all left man overly docile, but secretly in his unconscious unconvinced, and therefore neurotic.” Therefore, the "laws of the flesh" is man's "Great Refusal." A "neurotic" condition is produced when man's natural inclinations are blocked by "unrealistic" (unnatural) demands, i.e. by God, parent, law. Therefore Brown writes “According to Freud, the ultimate essence of our being is erotic, and demands activity according to the pleasure-principle.” “Fore-pleasure is the preliminary play with all parts of the body, and represent a perpetuation of the pure polymorphous perverse play of infantile sexuality.” The energy or desire with which the human being pursues pleasure is the pleasurable activity of an organ of the body. Infants are absorbed in their own bodies; they are in love with themselves. Infants know no guide except the pleasure-principle. Infants have a richer sexual life than adults. In man, infantile sexuality is repressed and never outgrown; repression, (and consequently neurosis) distinguishes man from the other animals.” (Brown) The quest is "To rediscover the animal in man." Maslow believed the road to health began with the animal trait of nudity. "It looks as if nudism is the first step toward ultimate free-animality-humanism. Must encourage it. Nakedness is absolutely right. So is the attack on antieroticism, the Christian and Jewish foundations." Lowry The Journals of Abraham Maslow Carl Rogers wrote: “The innermost core of man’s nature, the base of his ‘animal nature,’ is positive in nature." “Maslow puts up a vigorous case for man's animal nature . . . anti-social emotions – hostility, jealousy, etc. – result from frustration of more basic impulses for love and security and belonging [Eros].” “Do we dare to generalize from this type of experience that if we cut through deeply enough to our organismic nature, that we find that man is a positive and social animal? This is the suggestion from our clinical experience.” Carl Rogers On becoming a person

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us–ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." 2 Peter 3:9-14

The problem lies, according to Brown, in man's ability to "promise." He wrote: “Nietzsche begins by defining man as the ‘animal that can promise.’” “The ability to promise involves the loss of the natural animal forgetfulness of the past, which is the precondition for healthy living in the present.” “Through the ability to promise, the future is bound to the past.” “It is what makes man responsible; it is his conscience.” “Man is the animal which represses himself and which creates culture or society in order to repress himself.” But, according to Brown “Man is distinguished from animals not simply by culture, but also by a desire to change his culture and so to change himself.” It is this ability of man to change himself which gives the socio-psychologists, i.e. the globalists, hope in achieving world "peace." Marcuse, as Brown, promoted the sensuous nature of man as the pathway out of repression. Marcuse writes, concerning the use of two of man's "animalistic" senses (quoting Freud), “The vicissitudes of the ‘proximity senses’ (smell and taste) ... is ‘much more a bodily, physical one, hence also more akin to sexual pleasure' .... give, as it were, unsublimated pleasure per se (and unrepressed disgust). They relate (and separate) individuals immediately. Such immediacy is incompatible with the effectiveness of organized domination, with a society which ‘tends to isolate people, to put distance between them, and to prevent spontaneous relationships and the the natural animal-like expressions of such relations.'”

"Freud takes with absolute seriousness the proposition of Jesus: ‘Except ye become as little children, ye can in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven.’” Norman O. Brown Life Against Death

According to Brown heaven can be found on earth: “In the words of Thoreau: ‘We need pray for no higher heaven than the pure senses can furnish, a purely sensuous life. Our present senses are but rudiments of what they are destined to become.’” The famous socio-psychologist Abraham Maslow wrote: "Heaven is available to us now, and is all around us." Abraham Maslow Maslow on Management “The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious; the foundation has to be recovered.” (Brown) Brown writes: since “[s]exual instinct seeks union with objects in the world....” and “[e]ros is fundamentally a desire for union (being one) with objects in the world ... [e]ros is the foundation of morality.” Therefore "... self-perfection (narcissism) of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure.” “Human perfection consists in an expansion of the self until it enjoys the world as it enjoys itself.” Any such praxis of Eros is "tabooed" in a patriarchal society. Yet in a civilization of Eros (built upon sensitivity training) a patriarchal society is seen as enslaving "the pleasure ego by the reality ego" i.e. "enslaving" the children and the mother by the father. Take note: this is the foundation on which "hate" crimes are being defined and will be judged. "Children ... have not acquired that sense of shame which, according to the Biblical story, expelled mankind from Paradise [seen as an act of hate], and which, presumably, would be discarded if Paradise were regained." (Brown) The issue with all these men was how to restore the Garden in Eden (Eden means "pleasure"; "And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil." Genesis 2:9), a lifestyle of (p)leasure and guaranteed sustenance ("the good life," the sensuous life). But this time the world wants a garden of pleasure without God.

Consciousness, instead of being the watchman over a dangerous and unpredictable lot of impulses, becomes the comfortable inhabitant of a society of impulses and feelings and thoughts. The individual increasingly comes to feel that this locus of evaluation lies within himself [as Eve felt in the Garden in Eden]. Individuals move not from a fixity through change to a new fixity, though such a process is indeed possible. But [through a] continuum from fixity to changingness, from rigid structure to flow, from stasis to process [from absolutism-faith to relativism-doubt]. The good life is not any fixed state [found in obedience to God]. The good life is a process [found in Satan's process as used in the Garden in Eden]. The direction which constitutes the good life is psychological freedom to move in any direction [where] the general qualities of this selected direction appear to have a certain universality [Eros]. Doing what ‘feels right’ proves to be a competent and trustworthy guide to behavior which is truly satisfying. As we reach the fork in the road. Thinking starts at that point. If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors will follow. 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 [this is the condition every one of our elected officials face in a facilitated subcommittees striving for consensus]. Walden Two [quotation of Skinner]: ‘Now that we know how positive reinforcement works, and why negative doesn’t’ … ‘we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design.’ “We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled, though they are following a code much more scrupulously 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 restraint 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. . . .we will inevitably find ourselves moving toward the chosen goal, and probably thinking that we ourselves desired it. …it appears that some form of completely controlled society … is coming. “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. The choice is up to use, and the human race being what it is, we are likely to stumble about, making at times some nearly disastrous value choices, and at other times highly constructive ones.” Carl Rogers On becoming a person

Marcuse & Freud

Dad and mom may not be perfect but the office is.
The liberal agenda is to negate the patriarchal office in the thinking (theory) of every individual and in actions (practice-praxis) of society.

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him." Ephesians 6:1-9

Liberals may not like the concept of being servant to any master. Yet they refuse to recognize themselves as being servants to their master, the flesh and the prince of the power of the air. They, by their nature, seek to be masters over others, making them servants. How many people pay taxes to support this process against their will and their conscience for fear of the liberals punishing them with fines and imprisonment. The American citizen is now servant to their master Eros and unfortunately most love it.

The Sexual Revolution
"If it feels good, just do it." Herbert Marcuse Eros and Civilization

"And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts:" 2 Timothy 2: 19-22a

Fleshly desires are subject to a higher authority, the sons are subject to the father's will, his commands. "Thy will be done on earth, as in heaven." All this is against their own natural inclination of relationship with the one whom they love—the mother, natural resources, the beauty of the cosmos. Following the Gnostic story, man is now subject to God's will (demiurge), he is thus repressed. This subordination to a higher authority, against a persons natural inclination, splits (alienates) man from his "rightful" (sinful) relation with nature, the creation—Sophia, "mother earth," Gaia, the cosmic forces. Marcuse reveals the danger which lies in Freud's line of reasoning: "A society which employs sexuality as means for a useful end, the perversions upheld sexuality as an end in itself; they thus place themselves outside the domain of the performance principle [obedience toward God, parent, commander, law of the land, the very essence of sovereignty] and challenge its very foundation.” This is a mandate to execute patricide and a call to perform incest. Remember that Freud is not calling sex the act of procreation (he called the praxis of procreation castration). “In terms of the pleasure principles ... reproduction is merely a ‘by-product.” (Marcuse) Sex, to Freud, was the orgiastic, Dionysian, sensuousness of touch, taste, sight, smell, sound, seeking expression (Orpheus) and unity (Narcissus) with that Dr. Kinsey interviewing a respondent to his survey.with which the senses are "naturally" drawn through (Eros). The pathway of "world peace," including the church, is via Eros. “Dionysus affirms the dialectical unity of the great instinctual opposites: reunifies male and female, Self and Others, life and death.” (Brown) Thus adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, pedophilia, etc. can be justified as forms of expressing love (tolerated), and thus can become the core of social unity. Any opposition would be labeled as hate, as the trend is today. Alfred Charles Kinsey, a Rockefeller, federally funded pedophile, noted for his "Kinsey Report," coined the phrase sexual revolution. His defense of homosexuality assisted the American Psychiatric Association in removing homosexually from their list of mental illnesses. Wilhelm Reich, a Marxist, who advocated a guilt-free sex life, promoted Freud's perverse agenda in America. In light of this definition of sex and according to those using sensitivity training to bring peace and harmony upon the earth, what Satan got Eve to praxis in the Garden in Eden ("polymorphic-perverse" behavior) is the desired outcome for every person on the face of the earth. As stated before it is not how far down the path you have traveled that matters, you may have just started and all seems well, it is the path that you are on.


"But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil." Matthew 5:7

"Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity." "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. Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity." "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." Ecclesiastes 1:2; 11:9, 10; 12:13, 14

"What can I get out of this relationship for myself?"

"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. 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. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up." James 4:1-10

Does anyone notice these trends in the "church" today?

The Seat!
To chasten, to spank for doing wrong.

Patricide: either there is no father in the family or he does not act like one.

"‘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 .” Herbert Marcuse Eros and Civilization, quoting Sigmund Freud

It does not really matter whether the family no longer has a father (God) or he is present as long as the "family" is not restrained by the act of chastening (negative "force field"). In other words, the fear of judgment from either a heavenly father or an earthly father is no longer justifiable in the life (praxis) and the thoughts (theory) of the "earthly family."

“Once the earthly family [which chastens] is discovered to be the secret of the heavenly family [which chastens] the former must itself be annihilated, both in theory and in practice [chastening no longer accepted as proper behavior in the thoughts, the theory, of each individual and in the life, the praxis, of the community "family"].” Karl Marx Feuerbach Thesis #4

"When a man has finally reached the point where he does not think he knows it better than others, that is when he has become indifferent to what they have done badly and he is interested only in what they have done right, then peace and affirmation have come to him."
G. F. W. Hegel, in one of the casual notes preserved at Widener.

Psychology is all about the negation of the patriarch (negative) and the promotion of incest (positive). This is Abomination in the eyes of the Lord.

To see a child spanked is not a pleasant thing in the eyes of the world, for "boys will be boys." Satan knew that the world would back this one.

Regarding spanking, a friend of mine shared about a woman with a key chain which read : "I'm not mean, your a sissy."

"For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons." Hebrews 12:6-8

 "When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors. As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works." Psalms 73:16-20, 25-28

    New Age author Marilyn Ferguson outlined this paradigm shift in The Aquarian Conspiracy.  It was sobering to see that the changes she sought in the seventies had become reality in the nineties. Now, in 2008, they have transformed churches as well as schools.

    Study her chart below.  Notice, in the first comparison, how she differentiates between the old paradigm's "right" information and the new paradigm's "right things." To shift from the left to the right side, teachers as well as children must be made "open to" new concepts.  




Emphasis on content, acquiring a body of "right" information, once and for all.

Emphasis on learning how to learn... pay attention to the right things, be open to and evaluate new concepts, have access to information....

Hierarchical and authoritarian structure.

Egalitarian. Candor and dissent permitted.

Emphasis on the "appropriate ages for certain activities"

Flexibility and integration of age groupings.

Priority on performance.

Priority on self-image as the generator of performance.

Emphasis on external world. Inner experience often considered inappropriate in school setting.

Inner experience seen as context for learning. Use of imagery, storytelling, dream journals, "centering" exercises, and exploration of feelings encouraged.

Emphasis on analytical, linear... thinking.

Augments left-brain rationality with holistic, nonlinear, and intuitive strategies.


Blueprint for secual "freedom" & social depravity. Debate flies over 'sex play' in kindergartens: "Norwegians woke up Tuesday morning to news that a respected Oslo pre-school teacher, backed by child psychologists, thinks children should be allowed to openly express their own sexuality, not least through sex play and games in the local day care centers.... The vast majority of Norwegians send their children from the age of one to the kindergartens, where they spend their days until they begin school at age six.... Pia Friis... a well-known pre-school educator, told newspaper Dagbladet on Tuesday that children should be allowed to express their own sexuality at day care centers. She doesn't want to stifle what comes naturally." This is what Freud wanted! See Warnings against promiscuity
