Pouring the Concrete for Marxism's Earthly Foundation

by baldilocks

Back in May, I said this.

When we think of lies, we tend to think of them as lin­ear one-​dimensional, straight-​out false­hoods: 2+2=57, for exam­ple — a thing so out­ra­geously false as to be laughable.

And this.

The Devil is build­ing his multi-​dimensional king­dom of lies — in coun­ter­point to the King­dom of God.

And in imi­ta­tion of it.

Usu­ally, the word ‘dialec­tic’ causes my eyes to glaze over, but that didn’t hap­pen while I was read­ing this intro for a site I plan to explore further.

In 1847 the Lon­don Com­mu­nist League (Karl Marx and Fred­er­ick Engels) used Hegel’s the­ory of the dialec­tic to back up their eco­nomic the­ory of com­mu­nism. Now, in the 21st cen­tury, Hegelian-​Marxist think­ing affects our entire social and polit­i­cal struc­ture. The Hegelian dialec­tic is the frame­work for guid­ing our thoughts and actions into con­flicts that lead us to a pre­de­ter­mined solu­tion. If we do not under­stand how the Hegelian dialec­tic shapes our per­cep­tions of the world, then we do not know how we are help­ing to imple­ment the vision. When we remain locked into dialec­ti­cal think­ing, we can­not see out of the box.

Hegel’s dialec­tic is the tool which manip­u­lates us into a fren­zied cir­cu­lar pat­tern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ide­ol­ogy we are play­ing a nec­es­sary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance human­ity into a dic­ta­tor­ship of the pro­le­tariat. The syn­thetic Hegelian solu­tion to all these con­flicts can’t be intro­duced unless we all take a side that will advance the agenda. The Marxist’s global agenda is mov­ing along at break­neck speed. The only way to com­pletely stop the pri­vacy inva­sions, expand­ing domes­tic police pow­ers, land grabs, insane wars against inan­i­mate objects (and tran­sient verbs), covert actions, and out­right assaults on indi­vid­ual lib­erty, is to step out­side the dialec­tic. This releases us from the lim­i­ta­tions of con­trolled and guided thought.

The empha­sis belongs to the author and rightly so. I have called this “binary think­ing” – the idea that only two oppos­ing choices are avail­able when solv­ing a prob­lem; or the idea that a per­son must always choose one of two and only two sides in any dis­pute; or the idea that no “think­ing” per­son could con­ceive of more than two choices. And so on.

If I didn’t have such an aver­sion to most of the Great Philoso­phers, I might have iden­ti­fied dialec­ti­cal think­ing ear­lier. Bless­edly, I have an innate aver­sion to dialec­ti­cal think­ing even if I didn’t know what to call it before now.

But I’ve sensed for a long time that we are being herded into a total­i­tar­ian space. Out­rages of the day –espe­cially those involv­ing race or gen­der issues — are dis­trac­tion from this herd­ing and, iron­i­cally, prod­ding toward it.

The Hegelian Dialec­tic is part of the Devil’s king­dom of lies. And it is a very small part of it, but the pat­tern is a sim­ple one. And, once you rec­og­nize the pat­tern, you’ll see it everywhere.

Back in May, I said this.

When we think of lies, we tend to think of them as linear one-dimensional, straight-out falsehoods: 2+2=57, for example—a thing so outrageously false as to be laughable.

And this.

 The Devil is building his multi-dimensional kingdom of lies—in counterpoint to the Kingdom of God.

And in imitation of it.

Usually, the word ‘dialectic’ causes my eyes to glaze over, but that didn’t happen while I was reading this intro for a site I plan to explore further.

In 1847 the London Communist League (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels) used Hegel’s theory of the dialectic to back up their economic theory of communism. Now, in the 21st century, Hegelian-Marxist thinking affects our entire social and political structure. The Hegelian dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution. If we do not understand how the Hegelian dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement the visionWhen we remain locked into dialectical thinking, we cannot see out of the box.

Hegel

Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology we are playing a necessary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance humanity into a dictatorship of the proletariat. The synthetic Hegelian solution to all these conflicts can’t be introduced unless we all take a side that will advance the agenda. The Marxist’s global agenda is moving along at breakneck speed. The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic. This releases us from the limitations of controlled and guided thought.

The emphasis belongs to the author and rightly so. I have called this “binary thinking” – the idea that only two opposing choices are available when solving a problem; or the idea that a person must always choose one of two and only two sides in any dispute; or the idea that no “thinking” person could conceive of more than two choices. And so on.

If I didn’t have such an aversion to most of the Great Philosophers, I might have identified dialectical thinking earlier. Blessedly, I have an innate aversion to dialectical thinking even if I didn’t know what to call it before now.

But I’ve sensed for a long time that we are being herded into a totalitarian space. Outrages of the day –especially those involving race or gender issues — are distraction from this herding and, ironically, prodding toward it.

The Hegelian Dialectic is part of the Devil’s kingdom of lies. And it is a very small part of it, but the pattern is a simple one. And, once you recognize the pattern, you’ll see it everywhere.
