The Leftists don’t use Reason—that is why Ayn Rand stated that they were “irrational”-—her word.
The only time they use Reason is when they plan their agenda to fool the masses and create “happy slaves”. They plan infiltration of all institutions that have “power” and coordinate all their MSM mouthpieces with specific soundbites since the 20s. They are great at it because they are Jackboots and people fear they will end up like a Breitbart if they don’t do as told. “Fear” is necessary for them to get “control” over others.
That is why true Christians are so dangerous (Bonhoeffer)—they fear God, not Man and will fight for Truth. Marxists get the dirt on all their targets (NSA/CIA) and will use it to destroy people’s reputation and wealth. When they can’t (like Breitbart), they kill them.
The repetition is essential—and the control of all information is essential. The internet is a Godsend-—we are getting much more “truth” now.
All public school textbooks have been designed by psychologists to train children (Pavlovian methodology) to “think” one way and destroy Reason and Virtue. They tie emotions to concepts-—so words elicit the correct “feeling”. It is operant conditioning and they have done this for 30 years at least. In Common Core, 1st grade book they tie “Nag to Mother”. This is one of the less obvious ones.......
All concepts undermine the Natural Family—mother and father-—and Christian Ethics. They want to destroy those things which created Individualism and Courage and Reason (Christianity). Alone—without family you are weak, ineffective.....no problem for the State to crush-—that is why the Lenin’s No Fault Divorce laws to destroy the contract and encourage divorce so children become emotionally damaged and people are too busy with dealing with life to watch government officials.
After being brainwashed for 12 years, it is almost impossible to get these zombies OUT of Plato’s Cave. Common Core is complete annihilation of Classical Thinking (Reasoning).
My simple suggestion:
Back to Common Sense/Laws of Nature/Reason/Truth/God.
Burn all public school textbooks. All of them, and put parents in control of their children’s education with a free market-—all local control and throw out the TV (for the children). Control the TV at least and use it very sparingly. If children very rarely watch tv—it is better for IQ. TV watching is related to lower IQ.
BTT! Great post - as usual.
Prescient of you as well...(either that, or the author was inspired BY you:)
Good post. I didn’t know Lenin created no fault divorce laws but I’m not surprised.
Did you notice in the cartoon that it used the word “discriminate” as a good thing that man’s reason needs to use? Our society has been brainwashed into thinking that it’s always a terrible thing but it simply means to discern or distinguish.
Here are two good articles I posted on this topic:
“It especially annoys me when racists are accused of ‘discrimination.’ The ability to discriminate is a precious facility; by judging all members of one ‘race’ to be the same, the racist precisely shows himself incapable of discrimination.”-Christopher Hitchens on a rare occasion when I agreed with him. Sadly, we know emotion has overtaken reason when it’s become a “virtue” to be indiscriminate and undiscerning.
Similarly, "judge" is distorted to mean "abuse" --- it's been given the emotional impact of "bully" or "sodomize" --- when judging justly (and in a discriminating manner!) is the essential task of reason as applied to matters of right and wrong. We need to beg the Holy Spirit to give us more and more people who can judge rightly, to give us courage and discernment in judgment --- something very pleasing to God.
I realized how the Leftists have always controlled the “words”-—in the Wittgensteinian sense-—which creates the “proper” perceptions-—when I read, “Blacklisted by History” about how McCarthy was set up and destroyed because he was exposing all the infiltration. Put out a lie in the AP and it is constantly repeated over and over-—and becomes the truth in the minds of the masses. (herd instinct is very strong). JP Morgan bought up all major press outlets by 1920 so he and his men could control the ideas given to the masses.
I studied Wittgenstein and Wundt and Pavlov.....and the Communists/Lenin and the rest, absorbed every single word these people ever wrote or said.
You control words-—and you control all perceptions eventually. Every word the Left uses is calculated in the Wundt sense. The Left had a vice on all information for 100 years-—until the internet. All info is suspect..that we have taken for granted-—we have to research everything we “thought” we knew. I think this was one of Reagan’s brilliant lines-—”It is not what you know that is the problem. It is what you know that ain’t so, that is the problem.” That is Marxism to a “T”-—everything is irrational, lies, misinformation.
Confusion and fear and ignorance is essential. Montesquieu stated promotion of fear is necessary for totalitarian governments-—Promoting Virtue for Free Republics and promoting Loyalty for Monarchies.
The public schools have got to be free of all the Billy Ayers-type curricula/Common Core. It teaches ignorance and destroys Virtue intentionally (confuses)-—it is destroying the minds of our children—filling them with nonsense and erasing Classical ideas so Reason will be removed and “feelings” will be embedded-—the proper ones, of course, for a Marxist utopia.
Great Hitchen’s quote-—he could be very quick at times.
Wittgenstein knew to control words/language could control perceptions.
The Left flips Good and Evil to destroy Christian Ethics—that which created the Age of Reason and the Enlightenment and USA. Without Logic (Classical Education) we can not understand very much-—especially ideas. Ideas matter and have to be understood—so we know where they will take us (by understanding History).
Discrimination is a virtue and necessary for Excellence and to live. It can be misused-—as Aristotle stated in the Nicomachean Ethics-—there is a Golden Mean (middle)-— the extremes will be bad. Not enough—too little.
Leftists teach our little kids-—in the Billy Ayers curricula that discrimination is bad-—it is a lie....it is essential for Life.
Tolerance is the other big one they teach little children. Tolerance is a Virtue-—but it ceases to be a virtue when you tolerate evil around you. Bonhoeffer had the greatest quote about being Silent in the face of evil-—is evil.
This warps children-—embeds ‘feelings” which will make them “feel” bad when they do discriminate in a good sense and make them think they are “good” when they see evil and they are “nice” and accepting of it.
Wisdom is discerning Good and Evil and the Left is literally destroying Wisdom in our children on purpose. Common Core does it....confuses and teaches lies/misinformation and in an illogical manner.
