"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverb. 3: 5-6

Does Anybody Get It?
(Personal note.)

Dean Gotcher

"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

It is not about the other guy or government it is about you, i.e., your heart. It is God who raises up nations and it is He who brings them down (turns them over to their own demise, i.e., lusts). He looks at the heart of the people to determine what to do with the nation. With the nation (and the world) now lusting after pleasure as never before, refusing to be told, is it worth saving? If you do not address your heart you have addressed nothing. It is where everything starts.

"I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet." Romans 7:7

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2 Timothy 4:3, 4

Without being told we would not know.

"Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding." "He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding." Proverbs 4:1; 15:32

"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." Ephesians 6:1-3

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6

"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psalms 119:11

To remove any confusion the Father is above all. He is the only one we answer to in the end (who has the final say).

"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9

"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." Ecclesiastes 11:9

". . . every one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12

"And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." 1 John 2:18

"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?" Romans 6:16

"No man 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." Matthew 6:24

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8, 9

Anything or anyone you put between you and the Father is lust. What He says you can do is not sin. What he says you can not do, and you do it is sin. While the earthly father and the Heavenly Father have the same paradigm, only the Heavenly Father is perfect, i.e., right all the time. Those only "of (and for) the world," i.e., only of and for stimulus-response, having rejected the Heavenly Father's authority seek to negate the earthly father's authority in order to rule the world without having to obey the law, i.e., so they can lust without being judged, condemned, and cast out, so they can do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., lust, removing anyone who gets in their way, including the unborn, the elderly, the innocent, the righteous without having a guilty conscience (which is engendered by the father's/Father's authority). Those of the "deep state" are built upon stimulus-response, i.e., "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life," i.e., "sensuous needs, sense perception, and sense experience," and the world that stimulates it, success in their eyes is having fancy houses, fancy cars, fancy boats, fancy trips, fancy women, i.e., all that the world of pleasure has to offer them, as the woman in the garden in Eden, making themselves god over all the creation, i.e., what they see they "own." It starts with the child touching everything in the store.

". . . despotism . . . predominates in the human heart." (George Washington, Farewell Address)

Anything or anyone the person in government puts between the Constitution (the Bill of Rights), i.e., what he has sworn to uphold and the citizen (who he is sent to re-present) is lust, i.e., self interest. Put another way anyone in government who puts his self interest above the Constitution (refuses "governance") is the enemy of the citizens (has become a "despot"). The King issue, i.e., "despotism" was solved by the American Revolution and the Constitution, making the father, i.e., the head of the home the King, limiting the power of government with his right of conviction (religion and speech), right of property (right to bear arm), and right of business, with his right to hold his children accountable to his standards (with no one coming between them and him, except God), with the children (the next generation of citizens) learning there is right and there is wrong behavior (even though the father can be wrong, the children, knowing he is wrong sustain the right-wrong way of thinking), that they will be held accountable for their thoughts (when spoken) and their actions, developing a guilty conscience in them for doing wrong, sustaining the father's/Father's authority system in them when they grow up and leave home, i.e., when they start a family of their own. Only by limiting the power of government can the traditional family, i.e., the father's authority system be initiated and sustained, under God.

"Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD." "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:5, 7

But father's, now depending upon the government to feed their lusts (both go hand in hand), instead of trusting in the Lord, like children in adult bodies have replaced their God given 'liberties' with the pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates (that the government "guarentees"), turning their children over to the government to educate them instead of training them up in the admonition of the Lord themselves, lust for the "good life," i.e., for the pleasures of the 'moment' being more important to them than doing the Father's will.

"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. " Ephesians 6:4

"And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 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. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." Hebrews 12:5-11

When you bring "social(ist) worth" or "social(ist) cause" into the courtroom (for example) the right's of the individual are (the father's/Father's authority is) negated. It is the difference between the tower of babel (socialist government) and being scattered (limited and local government). You can not get any more local than the "middle-class" home, with the father/Father in control, with the latter engendering individualism, under God—the reason the traditional home is so vehemently hated by those "of (and for) the world."

"... the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws.'" (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)

". . . prevent someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space [the child's/men's thoughts]." (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future)

Everything God created is based upon stimulus-response, i.e., upon approach pleasure and avoid pain (for organisms), that was until He created man. "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Genesis 2:7 He then did something else with man that He did with nothing else in the creation, He told him how he was to behave, i.e., what was right and what was wrong behavior, i.e., what he could and could not do. "And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Genesis 2:16, 17 Only man can read or write a book, tell others and be told what is right and what is wrong behavior. All the rest of the creation is stimulus-response. When man turns to stimulus-response, i.e., lust and the world that stimulates it in order to establish behavior he rejects the father's/Father's authority, i.e., he rejects being told what is right and what is wrong behavior. Those "of (and for) the world" turn to stimulus-response ("create a 'health' environment and you can 'create' a 'healthy' person") in defiance to God and His Word (that all have sinned, needing a savior; ". . . it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23), so they can sin, i.e., lust without having a guilty conscience, i.e., without being judged, condemned, and cast out (at least in their mind, until death, i.e., judgment). Rejecting being told (thus rejecting doing what they are told) they reject faith, i.e., they reject their salvation. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8, 9 "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:" Romans 5:1 "So then faith cometh by hearing [being told], and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6 "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4

What we have today in government is "lawfulness without law," where the law of the flesh, i.e., lusts, i.e., self interest rules without the law of God, i.e., righteousness "getting in the way." (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment) [Side bar: when you leave the Lord out of your conversation with others "so you can witness to them in the future," you have already witnessed to them Godlessness, in your Godless conversation with them now. "In all thy ways acknowledge him," Proverbs 3:6] That was not always the case. In 1941 our Supreme Court wrote: "Every system of law known to civilized society generated from or had as its component one of two well known systems of ethics, stoic or Christian [men's opinions or rule of law]. The COMMON LAW draws its subsistence from the latter, its roots go deep into that system, the Christian concept of right and wrong or right and justice motivates every rule of equity. It is the guide by which we dissolve domestic friction's and the rule by which all legal controversies are settled." (Strauss Vs. Strauss., 3 So. 2nd 727, 728, 1941) In 1973 our Supreme Court, following after the idiology of Karl Marx, i.e., "The justice of state constitutions is to be decided not on the basis of Christianity, not from the nature of Christian society but from the nature of human society" replacing the law of restraint, i.e., the father's/Father's authority with the law of the flesh, i.e., lust, disquised as self-control wrote: ". . . there has always been strong support for the view [opinion] that life does not begin until live birth. This was the belief of the Stoics." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right'; ROE v. WADE, 410 U.S. 113 15, 1973) The conservative court uses discussion, i.e., "It is written," i.e., what the constitution says in dealing with issues, with the constitution having the final say. The liberal court uses dialogue, i.e., "I" or "We feel" and "I" or "We think," i.e., their opinion in dealing with issues, with their lust for pleasure and resentment toward restraint having the final say. The former is objective (deductive reasoning), restraining lust. The latter is subjective (inductive reasoning), 'justifying' lust. The same is true for all activies of life.

Does anybody get it? Everyone is going after organizations, people, etc., instead of addressing the real problem, i.e., the heart of man, i.e., sin, i.e., lust and the issue of righteousness (dare I say it without being censored—which I have been by "conservative" radio, as well as by the "church").

"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you." 2 Peter 2:3

All I have to do is get a child (your child or your spouse, your educator, your town council, your legislator, your judge, the media, your sheriff, your boss, your minister, etc.,) who was raised in a traditional home, i.e., taught to do right and not wrong by being told, to share (dialogue) his "feelings" and "thoughts" regarding what he has been told he can not do (that he wants to do), without having to fear being judged, condemned, or cast out and I "own" him. (You think your "home schooled" child can withstand this, I hope they can but those "of (and for) the world" are looking forward to having them in their classes to practice their wares on them, i.e., to "cook" them. If they do not KNOW the Lord personally, doing the Father's will being their heart's desire, they are game, i.e., the mark of the day. If they refuse to participate or resist, maintaining their faith, they are a witness for their faith, the greek word for witness being martyr, i.e., they will, and must be martyred for "the groups" sake.) It is what the master facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the master psychotherapist did to the woman in the garden in Eden (with Adam following after her)—Genesis 3:1-6. For example, by think tanks (social-psychologists, i.e., facilitators of 'change') identifying your legislators weakness, i.e., what he is lusting after and entrapping him (providing him opportunities to participate in activities that satisfy his lusts, at least in his imagination and "helping" him remain in office in the next election), he is progressively drawn toward supporting their ideology. No longer re-presenting his constituents, at least not the conservative ("narrow minded") one's, his 'loyalty' is now toward those who 'justify' his self interests, resulting in him passing laws that increase their influence in government (their control over "the people," passing laws that make "the people" subject to their financial gain). While he may not profit much financially while in office (other than fancy trips, parties, entertainment, perks and other privileges, and contact with "important" and famous people, etc.,), providing his 'loyalty' to the think tanks, i.e., the deep state continues to the end, he will be supported (reap the reward) in retirement, having served their purpose all along. Doing it in a group makes it even easier.

"It is usually easier to change individuals formed into a group than to change any one of them separately." "The individual accepts the new system of values and beliefs by accepting belongingness to the group." (Kurt Lewin in Kenneth Benne, Human Relations in Curriculum Change)

All "teachers" are trained in and certified by and schools accredited based upon their use of this method (curriculum) in their classroom(s), included "Christian."

"A change in the curriculum is a change in the people concerned—in teachers, in students, in parents ....." "Curriculum change means that the group involved must shift its approval from the old to some new set of reciprocal behavior patterns." "... people involved who were loyal to the older pattern must be helped to transfer their allegiance to the new." "Re-education aims to change the system of values and beliefs of an individual or a group." (Benne)

The "old" education system (curriculum) is based upon the father's/Father's authority system where the educator 1) preaches established commands and rules to be obeyed as given, teaches established facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith, and discusses with the students any question(s) they might have regarding the commands, rules, facts, and truth being taught, at the teacher's discretion, i.e., providing he or she deems it necessary, has time, the students are able to understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking authority, 2) rewards the students who do right and obey, 3) corrects and/or chastens the student who does wrong and/or disobeys, that he might learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate his "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to the established commands, rules, facts, and truth he has been taught (told), i.e., in order to do the father's/Fathers' will, and 4) casts out (expels/grounds) any student who questions, challenges, defies, disregards, attacks the father's/Father's authority system, which retains the father's/Father's authority system in the students thoughts and actions, resulting in the the student KNOWING right from wrong from being told (especially when it comes to behavior).

The "new" education system (curriculum) is based upon the "feelings" and "thoughts" of the students, who are seduced, deceived, and manipulated (as Thorndike's chickens, Skinners rats, Pavlov's dog) by the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the psychotherapist—remember it is based upon stimulus-response, not upon being told.

"Bloom's Taxonomies" (by which all educators are certified and schools accredited today) are "a psychological classification system" used "to develop attitudes and values ... which are not shaped by the parents," "The student must feel free to say he disliked _____ and not have to worry about being punished for his reaction." "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)

"We recognize the point of view that truth and knowledge are only relative and that there are no hard and fast truths which exist for all time and places." (Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 1: Cognitive Domain)

Karl Marx's ideology as explained by Friedrich Engels was: "In the eyes of the dialectic philosophy [when you use dialogue, i.e., your feelings and thoughts of the 'moment,' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or people or person is stimulating in order to determine right and wrong behavior, without fear of being judged, condemned, or cast out], nothing is established for all times, nothing is absolute or sacred." If, according to Karl Marx "nothing is established for all times, nothing is absolute or sacred" then the father's/Father's authority system must be removed from the environment in order for the individual to do what comes natural to him in the current situation (making reasoning subject to stimulus-response, i.e., subject to the individuals lusts and resentments of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., that the current situation and/or object, people, or person is stimulating, instead of doing right and not wrong according to what you have been told).

"Laws must not fetter human life [inhibit or block lust]; but yield to it; they must change as the needs [the lusts] and capacities [interests/attractions of lust] of the people change." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')

"The affective domain [how you "feel" when it comes to right and wrong behavior, directly effecting what you "think"] is, in retrospect, a virtual 'Pandora's Box' [a "box" (jar) full of evils, which once opened, can not be closed—once parental authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority, i.e., fear of judgment, i.e., "the lid" is removed it is difficult if not impossible to put it back on again].' It is in this 'box' that the most influential controls are to be found." "In fact, a large part of what we call 'good teaching' is the teacher's ability to attain affective objectives ['liberating' the student's "feelings" from his or her parent's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's authority system] through challenging the student's fixed beliefs [pressuring the student (out of fear of group rejection) to publicly, i.e., in "the group" (for the sake of group approval) question, challenging, disregard, defy, attack, etc., his parents commands, rules, facts, and truth] and getting them to discuss issues [evaluating the world through his carnal desires, i.e., his "lusts," i.e., his "self interests" of the 'moment,' that which he has in common with "the group"]." "... allows the individual [the student] a greater amount of freedom in which to achieve a Weltanschauung [World View]1" (Bloom's "Weltanschauung," as he noted, was that of two Marxists, i.e., "1Cf. Erich Fromm, 1941; T. W. Adorno et al., 1950.")

"We are proud that in his conduct of life man has become free from external authorities, which tell him what to do and what not to do." "All that matters is that the opportunity for genuine activity be restored to the individual; that the purposes of society [lust] and of his own [lust] become identical." "... to give up 'God' and to establish a concept of man as a being ... who can feel at home in it [the world] if he achieves union with his fellow man and with nature [his and other's carnal nature and the world that stimulates it]." (Erick Fromm, Escape from Freedom)

"Authoritarian submission [humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining, capitulating one's "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will] was conceived of as a very general attitude that would be evoked in relation to a variety of authority figures—parents, older people, leaders, supernatural power, and so forth." "God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing authority." "Submission to authority, desire for a strong leader, subservience of the individual to the state [parental authority, local control, Nationalism], and so forth, have so frequently and, as it seems to us, correctly, been set forth as important aspects of the Nazi creed that a search for correlates of prejudice had naturally to take these attitudes into account." "Family relationships are characterized by fearful subservience to the demands of the parents and by an early suppression of impulses not acceptable to them." "The power-relationship between the parents, the domination of the subject's family by the father or by the mother, and their relative dominance in specific areas of life also seemed of importance for our problem." (Theodor Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality) The error in Adorno's "logic" is that all forms of socialism, including Fascism must negate the father's/Father's authority in the home/in the individual in order to intiate and sustain the socialist's control over "the people."

"Protestantism was the strongest force in the extension of cold rational individualism." (Max Horkheimer, Vernunft and Selbsterhaltung) Even the Marxist, Max Horkheimer recognized the effect of an individual putting no one or thing between him and the Father (no man, institution, lust, etc.).

"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

You can not do the Father's will with lust, i.e., your self, i.e., your self interest, which includes the approval of men in the way. Doing so 'liberates' you (in your mind) from the Father and His authority (until judgment day). The "there-and-then" (accountability for one's thoughts and actions) is replaced with the "here-and-now" (what one can get out of the situation and/or object, people, or person for his self) when lust comes between the person and the Father, i.e., when self interest comes between the elected offical and the Constitution.

"The individual [the student] is emancipated [is liberated from the father's/Father's authority] in the social group [in the "group grade"]." "Freud commented that only through the solidarity of all the participants could the sense of guilt [the guilty conscience which is engendered by the father's/Father's authority] be assuaged." "Self-perfection of the human individual is fulfilled in union with the world in pleasure." "According to Freud, the ultimate essence of our being is erotic." "Eros is fundamentally a desire for union with objects in the world." "Eros is the foundation of morality." (Norman O. Brown, Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History)

"The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #6)

"There is no more important issue than the interrelationship of the group members." "To question the value or activities of the group, would be to thrust himself into a state of dissonance." "Few individuals, as Asch has shown, can maintain their objectivity [their loyalty to the father's/Father's authority] in the face of apparent group unanimity." (Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy)

The father/Father demands no compromise. The group does.

"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." John 5:30

"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

"Change in organization [from 'loyalty' to the father/Father, who condemns your lusts to 'loyalty' to "the group" and the facilitator of 'change,' who 'justify' your lusts] can be derived from the overlapping between play and barrier behavior [between dialogue and discussion, which when used together (in establishing right and wrong behavior) engenders confusion i.e., cognitive dissonance—with the pressure of "the group," i.e., your desire for approval and fear of rejection, i.e., with dialogue, i.e., your self interest, i.e., your lust for pleasure, i.e., dopamine emancipation controlling the outcome]." (Barker, Dembo, & Lewin, "frustration and regression: an experiment with young children" in Child Behavior and Development)

By simply bringing dialogue into an environment establishing right and wrong behavior the father's/Father's authority system, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth is negated making the participants, i.e., their lust for pleasure and dissatisfaction with, resentment toward, hatred of restraint right (good) and the father's/Father's authority, i.e., having to do the father's/Father's will instead of yours wrong (evil).

All the master facilitator of 'change' had to do, in the garden in Eden was to get the woman to share her lust of the 'moment,' in a non-judgmental environment, where she could 'justify' it and he "owned" her, i.e., he changed her paradigm, i.e., he changed her way of feeling, thinking, and acting toward her self, others, the world, and authority.

The "educator," i.e., the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., the group psychotherapist does not have to tell the students to question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack their parent's authority when they get home from school, if they were not doing that already (telling them would be "old school," maintaining the "old" world order of being told even if it was done for the 'purpose' of 'change,' i.e., for the 'purpose' of creating a "new" world order), all they have to do is use a curriculum in the classroom that "encourages," i.e., pressures the students to participate in dialoguing their opinions to a consensus, 'justifying' their carnal nature, i.e., "lust" over and therefore against their parent's authority. Being told to be "positive" (supportive of the other students carnal nature) and not "negative" (judging them by their parent's standards) pressures students to 'justify' their and the other student's love of pleasure and hate of restrain, doing so in order to be approved, i.e., affirmed by "the group," resulting in "the group" labeling those students who, refuse to participate in the process of 'change' or who fight against it as being "negative," divisive, hateful, intolerant, maladjusted, unadaptable to 'change,' resisters of 'change,' not "team players," lower order thinkers, in denial, phobic, prejudiced, judgmental, racist, fascist, dictators, anti-social, etc., i.e., "hurting" people's "feelings" resulting in "the group" rejecting them—the student's natural desire for approval and fear of rejection forces him to participate. The same outcome applies to all adults, in any profession who participate in the process as well. Once you are 'labeled,' you are 'labeled' for life. In the soviet union, once you were 'labeled' "psychological," no matter how important you were in the past, your life was over, your career was done.

"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

"For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts." Psalms 10:3, 4

"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 1 Timothy 3:2-5

All the facilitator of 'change' has to do (in a "positive" environment, i.e., in an environment which will not judge, condemn, or cast you out for lusting after pleasure or for being wrong) is ask you how you feel and what you think regarding the commands, rules, facts, and truth you have been taught (that get in the way of your carnal desires), especially when it comes to behavior and the facilitator of 'change' "owns" you. This applies to all who participate in the facilitated, dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process (establishing lust over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority).

"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

"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure, i.e., lust is the standard for "good" instead of doing the father's/Father's will], and desperately wicked [hating anyone preventing, i.e., inhibiting or blocking it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' it lusts after]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 The unregenerat (carnal) heart can not see its hatred toward the father's/Father's authority as being evil, i.e., "wicked," i.e., "desperately wicked" because its lust for pleasure is standing in the way, 'justifying' the hate. (Mark 7:21-23)

"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

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

In other words, according to Karl Marx it is lust, i.e., enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the current situation and/or object, people, or person is stimulating that makes us at-one-with the world, establishing lust over and therefore against the father/Father's authority that gets in the way. Self is therefore "actualized" in lust, not in doing the father's/Father's will.

"The real nature of man is the totality of social relations." (Karl Marx, Thesis on Feuerbach #6)

"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." (Karl Marx, in John Lewis, The Life and Teachings of Karl Marx)

In other words, according to Karl Marx the child having to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate his "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will is not what "fulfills" the child. "On the contrary" it is the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the child having to do right and not wrong according to the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth that "destroys him," i.e., that prevents him from becoming his self, thinking and acting according to his carnal nature, i.e., according to what he has in common with all the children of the world. The child's desire for approval from others, requiring him to compromise in order to "get along," i.e., in order to build relationship "is the necessary framework through which freedom" from the father's/Father's authority and "freedom" to lust after pleasure, i.e., to do what he wants without having a guilty conscience (which the father's/Father's authority engenders) "are made reality."

"The individual is emancipated in the social group." "Freud commented that only through the solidarity of all the participants could the sense of guilt be assuaged." (Brown)

According to Sigmund Freud the guilty conscience is a product of the father's/Father's authority, which sustains the father's/Father's authority in society. It is only in the "social group" that the guilty conscience can negated. According to the Marxist, Norman O. Brown without the "social group" the child and society remains subject to the father's/Father's authority. Therefore the child and society can only be liberated from the father's/Father's authority and the guilty conscience which the father's/Father's authority engenders in the "social group," which 'justifies' the child's carnal nature, i.e., eros, i.e., lust.

"(T)he group to which an individual belongs is the ground for his perceptions, his feelings, and his actions" (Kurt Lewin, Resolving social conflicts: Selected papers on group dynamics)

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

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

"Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the Holy family, the former must then itself be destroyed [vernichtet, i.e., annihilated, i.e., negated] in theory and in practice." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4)

While the heavenly Father is holy and the earthly father is born into sin both have the same authority system, preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as given, teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is (at first at least by faith) and applied, discussing with those under his/His authority any questions they might have regarding his/His commands, rules, facts, and truth, providing he/He deems it necessary, has time, those under his/His authority are able to understand, and are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking his/His authority, 2) rewarding those who do right and obey, 3) correcting and/or chastening those who do wrong and/or disobey, that they might learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline, capitulate their "self" in order to do right and not wrong according to the established commands, rules, facts, and truth they have been taught (told), i.e., in order to do the father's/Fathers' will, and 4) casting out (expels/grounds) those who question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack his/His authority, which restrains the father's/Father's authority system in the child's/man's thoughts, directing effecting his actions, resulting in the those under the father's/Father's authority KNOWING right from wrong from being told (especially when it comes to behavior).

It is the guilty conscience, which is engendered by the father's/Father's authority that sustains the father's/Father's authority in the child and in society.

"The guilty conscience is formed in childhood by the incorporation of the parents and the wish to be father of oneself." "What we call 'conscience' perpetuates inside of us our bondage to past objects now part of ourselves:'" (Brown) A definition of the guilty conscience by a Marxist's perspective.

"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." (Dr. Robert Trojanowicz, The meaning of "Community" in Community Policing) Trojanowicz then promotes bringing the police and the community together with the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus process, negating local control, i.e., the father's/Father's authority system. Done with the use of 'crime' to bring "the people" together.

There is no father's/Father's authority, i.e., judgment, condemnation, fear of being cast out in dialogue therefore using dialogue to establish right and wrong behavior negates not only the father's/Father's authority it negates the guilty conscience as well.

"The negative valence of a forbidden object which in itself attracts the child [the guilty conscience] thus usually derives from an induced field of force of an adult." "If this field of force loses its psychological existence for the child (e.g., if the adult goes away or loses his authority) the negative valence also disappears." (Kurt Lewin, A Dynamic Theory of Personality)

While the guilty conscience ties the child to the father/Father or rather the father/Father to the child the "super-ego" ties the child to society.

"Superego development is conceived as the incorporation of the moral standards of society. Therefore the levels of the Taxonomy should describe successive levels of goal setting appropriate to superego development." (Book 2: Affective Domain)

It is the father's/Father's authority system itself that Karl Marx was out to negate. Having denied the Heavenly Father's authority all he had to negate was the earthly father's authority (which he believed engendered the Heavenly Father's authority, i.e., religion) Sigmund Freud had the same agenda.

"... the hatred against patriarchal suppression—a 'barrier to incest,' ... the desire (for the sons) to return to the mother culminates in the rebellion of the exiled sons, the collective killing and devouring of the father." "'It is not really a decisive matter whether one has killed one's father or abstained from the deed,' if the function of the conflict and its consequences are the same [the husband/father no longer exercises his authority in the home, over his wife/children]." (Sigmund Freud in Herbert Marcuse, Eros and Civilization: a psychological inquiry into Freud)

Sigmund Freud's history of the prodigal son is not of the son coming to his senses, humbling his self, returning home, submitting his self to his father's authority, learning his inheritance was not his father's money but his father's love for him (Luke 15:11-24), but of the son joining with his "friends," returning home, killing the father, taking all that was his (the father's), using it to satisfy their carnal desires, i.e., their lusts, killing all the fathers in the land (devouring the fathers) so all the children could be the same, i.e., like them, thereby affirming them, i.e., their "incest," 'justifying' and supporting their control over them.

"Marxian theory needs Freudian-type instinct theory to round it out. And of course, vice versa." "Third-Force psychology is also epi-Marxian in these senses, i.e., including the most basic scheme as true-good social conditions are necessary for personal growth, bad social conditions stunt human nature,... This is to say, one could reinterpret Marx into a self-actualization-fostering Third- and Fourth-Force psychology-philosophy. And my impression is anyway that this is the direction in which they are going now." (Abraham Maslow, The Journals of Abraham Maslow)

In otherwords society needs man's natural inclination to lust after pleasure in order to become one and man's natural inclination to lust after pleasure needs societies 'justification.' The 'liberation' of self, i.e., of lust out from under the father's/Father's authority "is necessary for personal growth," while submission of self to the father's/Father's authority "stunt(s) human nature." Marxism is philosophy and psychology becoming at-one-with one another. It is in dialogue (which does not recognize the father's/Father's authority) that all can become one, "bypass" the father's/Father's authority in making rules, policies, and law, i.e., in establishing right and wrong behavior—resulting in lust being right and the father's/Father's authority being wrong.

"In the dialogic relation of recognizing oneself in the other, they experience the common ground of their existence." (Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge & Human Interest, Chapter Three: The Idea of the Theory of Knowledge as Social Theory)

"Bypassing the traditional channels of 'top-down' decision making our objective center's upon transformation public opinion into an effective instrument of global politics." "Individual values must be measured by their contribution to common [lust] interests and ultimately to world interests, transforming public consensus into one favorable to the emergence of a stable and humanistic world order." "Consensus is both a personal and a political step. It is a precondition of all future steps." (Ervin Laszlo, A Strategy For The Future: The Systems Approach to World Order) This from the man who developed the theory of "climate change."

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in different ways, the objective however, is change." (Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #11) Inscribed on Karl Marx's tomb so it must be important.

In other words it is the father's authority system, i.e., the father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth (which differ from father to father) that divides the people. It is in the child's propensity to respond ('change' in accordance) to the situation and/or object, people, or person in the 'moment (stimulus-response; approach pleasure and avoid, resist, or remove restraint, that gets in the way of pleasure) that is the objective of life. Without the "help" of the facilitator of 'change' the children remain subject to the father's/Father's authority system. The facilitator of 'change,' perceiving his self as being the personification of "the people," who, like him lust after the carnal pleasures of the moment the world stimulates, hating restraint, sees it as his duty to 'justify' the people's natural inclination to lust after pleasure in order to 'justify' his natural inclination to lust after pleasure. When you question the facilitator of 'change's' actions he will respond with "It is not just about you," really meaning "It is all about me, so I can lust after pleasure without having a guilty conscience, with your affirmation. If you refuse to affirm me, i.e., my lusts or get in my way 'the people' will remove (negate) you (since having 'justifying' their lusts I now 'own' them). It appears I must keep an eye on you from now on for my 'good.'" This is the true meaning of "sight-based management," i.e., cameras everywhere. With a culture that has a guilty conscience for doing wrong you do no need cameras everywhere (you do not need sight-based managment). When a culture has no guilty conscience for doing wrong you need cameras everywhere (you need sight-based managment), i.e., you need a police state, where the police, no longer having a guilty conscience for doing wrong are 'loyal' to the socialist cause, i.e., lust.

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," "open ended, non-directed," 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, i.e., no established aka absolute command, rule, fact, or truth to be accepted as is, by faith and obeyed; there is only the person's carnal desires, i.e., lusts of the past and the present being verbally expressed and 'justified'), 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)—as predators, charlatans, pimps, pedophiles, 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., can "lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' that the world stimulates, 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, capitulate your "self" (your lusts) 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.
