When The Father Is Overthrown and the Boys Become Dysfunctional

When The Father Is Overthrown and the Boys Become Dysfunctional
Bernard Pyron

This is a big topic and important at the present time in history.

"As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over
them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy
the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3: 12

"But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work
wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred
up." I Kings 21: 25

Georg Lukács, 1885-1971, was one of the original Founders of the Frankfurt School of Transformational Marxism.  He understood that Protestant Christianity, in its spiritual transformation of the individual, and the Culture that Protestant Christianity created, prevented Marxism from taking over Western Europe and the United States. So Marxism must get rid of that Protestant Christianity and that Culture it created.

Though Lukács himself did not develop a specific method for the abolition of that Culture which grew out of the Northern Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation, Theodore Wiesengrund Adorno, 1903-1969, with other Frankfurters in the U.S. did lay the foundation for the Identity Politics now being used by Marxists to combat that Western dominant culture from the Renaissance-Reformation  which  Lukács had identified.

The Northern Renaissance was important for the development of that Culture which Lukacs understood to be a major hinder to the takeover of Western Europe and the U.S. by Marxism because that Northern Renaissance created the scholarship which enabled the Reformation to began in Northern Europe.  For example, Desiderius Erasmus, 1466-1536, was from Holland.  Erasmus created the Textus Receptus, which made the original Greek of the New Testament again available to translate into the common languages of Europe, including English in about 1526 by William Tyndale. Before Erasmus created the Textus Receptus, the Bible was only available  to most people in the form of the Latin Vulgate of Jerome.

See:  http://newpol.org/content/frankfurt-school-and-jews

"Fortunately, Horkheimer and Adorno’s approach began to change in 1939-1940, when they began to develop a vast research project on anti-Semitism, ultimately sponsored by the American Jewish Committee."

"Adorno and Horkheimer organized, as mentioned above, a vast research project on anti-Semitism, which resulted in several books published as a series, “Studies in Prejudice.” The best known is The Authoritarian Personality (1948), written, in part, by Adorno, which showed that anti-Semitism is intimately associated with certain character structures, such as blind submission to authority, violent aggressive attitude toward the “other,” and rigid stereotypical thinking. Leo Löwenthal and Norbert Guterman wrote the second book of the series, Prophets of Deceit (1949), dealing with American anti-Semitic agitators such as Father Coughlin, Gerald L. K. Smith, and a few others. Curiously enough, there is hardly a mention, in this context, of the most influential—by far!—American anti-Semite, namely Henry Ford, author of The International Jew (1921), who not only had a big impact in the United States, but whose book became a favorite of a German fascist named Adolf Schickelgruber. "

Note that the "theory" which Adorno and Horkheimer created around their interest in anti-semiticism looks a lot like a theory within American Personality and Social Psychology. In fact, in the fifties, this theory was accepted by many people then working in American Personality and Social Psychology.  At that time one of the most referenced topics in the Social and Personality   Psychology peer review journals was the F Scale, which Adorno and his associates used in heir paper and pencil questionnaire study of anti-semiticism and the Authoritarian Personality.

And in the 1950 book, The Authoritarian Personality, Adorno as senior author does get into his original interest in the study of anti-semiticism.

"The present inquiry into the nature of the potentially fascistic
individual began with anti-Semitism in the focus of attention.
The authors, in common with most social
scientists, hold the
view that anti-Semitism is based more largely upon factors in
the   subject   and   in   his   total   situation   than   upon   actual
characteristics   of   Jews,   and   that   one   place   to   look   for
determinants of anti-Semitic opinions and attitudes is within the
persons who express them.."

"And since from the start the
research was guided by the hypotheses stated above, it was
supposed (1) that anti-Semitism probably is not a specific or
isolated   phenomenon   but   a   part   of   a   broader   ideological
framework, and (2) that an individual's susceptibility to this
ideology depends primarily upon his psychological needs. "

"The   task   of   fascist   propaganda,   in   other   words,   is
rendered   easier   to   the   degree   that   antidemocratic   potentials
already exist in the great mass of people."

Although Adorno and other Frankfurters in the U.S. at the time talked about "Critical Theory" and pretended their theory on the cause of fascism and the Authoritarian Personality being centered around anti-semiticism and rigidity was real social science, what they were creating was more of a strategy for political propaganda purposes to change the American Culture - and, as it worked out, through the Universities.

"Once the earthly family is discovered to be the secret of the
heavenly family, the former must be destroyed (annihilated), in theory
and in practice." Karl Marx, Feuerbach Thesis #4

“The authoritarian family becomes the factory in which the state’s
structure and ideology are molded.” Wilhelm Reich The Mass Psychology of
Fascism.

“The conception of the ideal family situation for the child:
uncritical obedience to the father and elders, pressures directed
unilaterally from above to below, inhibition of spontaneity and
emphasis on conformity to externally imposed values.” Theodore. W.
Adorno, The Authoritarian Personality

“Psychoanalysis must treat religion as a neurosis.” Norman O. Brown
Life Against Death

“God is conceived more directly after a parental image and thus as a
source of support and as a guiding and sometimes punishing
authority.” Theodor W. Adorno The Authoritarian Personality (1950)

Transformational Marxist Identity Politics makes certain identities politically incorrect, and in doing so it divides the people.  The White Male becomes politically incorrect - in part because in Transformational Marxism the White Male as Father and ruler over the family is what causes the Authoritarian Personality.

You might think that therefore the Mother as head of the family would be acceptable to Identity Politics.  But -  think of the current Leftist chant, "No borders, no wall, no USA at all."  What the Left or Marxists want is "no family at all."

During the time of the Counterculture many Hippies and others in that Culture were taught to focus on sex, but in having many different sex partners over relatively short periods of time, like a year, what was happening was a diminishing of the heterosexual relationship itself.  Pornography on the Internet can be seen as a part of Transformational Marxism, to diminish the heterosexual relationship, which is the foundation of the family.

Later, as homosexuality and lesbianism became more popular in the Leftist culture, the heterosexual relationship itself  began to become politically incorrect among the Marxist Left.

Now there are consequences of all this rebellion against the
patriarchal structure of Christianity and the family.

See http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/...#ixzz2SeHMQ7eV

"Four years ago, psychologist Leonard Sax (M.D., Ph.D.) wrote a
well-received book titled Boys Adrift. The doctor tried to answer the
question, why have so many young males fallen into passivity and
indifference?.........."Something scary is happening to boys today,"
Sax concluded. "From kindergarten to college, American boys are, on
average, less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere
twenty years ago. The gender gap in college attendance and graduation
rates has widened dramatically."

The book's full title is Boys Adrift: The Five Factors Driving the
Growing Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men.
Sax lists the five factors right on the cover: "video games, teaching
methods, prescription drugs, environmental toxins, devaluation of
masculinity."

It's worrisome that he seems to like them all. That might be a clue
that he has not solved this mystery. Indeed, let's consider the
possibility that none of these theories is the deep answer we want.
Let's start from scratch and consider the things we know for sure.

First of all, critics have often noted that schools seem organized
more for girls than for boys...........Consider that all school
activity revolves around two basic skills: reading and arithmetic.
Students spend a lot of each day on these and must learn them in order
to advance to any other subjects. Failure in these two subjects
virtually guarantees failure in all subjects, and in all of life.

Perversely, our public schools, for more than 50 years, have used
dysfunctional methods that virtually guarantee failure for the
ordinary boy."

Remember that Transformational Marxist educational psychologist
Benjamin Bloom was the guy who wrote the books that have been used to
certify all American school teachers since about 1956. Some blame the
problem of dumbing down the American generations born after 1945 on
"Government Schools." It is true that Transformational Marxism got
its foot in the door and then marched fully in with a lot of help from
the federal government. But it was that form of Marxism which didn't
call itself Marxism that has helped to mess up the American boys.

The article above also says "Dr. Sax speaks of masculinity being
undervalued. Maybe it's more directly a case of masculinity hemmed in
and, as the school years pass, neutralized.

Finally. one can never escape the impression that there is
premeditation in all of this." My comment: Right, read Benjamin
Bloom.

There are other reasons for the boy problem. Russell Blaylock, MD, a
former brain surgeon, has articles and youtube videos on how
vaccinations cause brain damage. Here is a 2004 article of Blaylock's
with a huge number of peer review articles on brain damage from over
vaccination. http://www.whale.to/a/blaylock.html

Blaylock says people born before 1945 are less depressed.

It is known that autism, a form of mental retardation, which has
been increasing greatly in the last few decades, affects boys more than girls.
It may be that over-vaccination, which causes brain damage, especially in some
people, may have a greater effect on the male population than on girls.

And -there has been changes in the American diet, and addition of more toxins,
which result in lower levels of testosterone in the younger
generations, in both males and females. But this lowering of testosterone
in boys, especially teen age boys, is likely one factor in the boy problem
that Dr.Sax wrote about. Testosterone not only has some benefits for the heart,
but it also benefits the brain and brain functions like memory.
Studies show that attention, memory, and spatial ability are cognitive
functions affected by testosterone levels in humans. And -
testosterone
levels in boys may be important for early learning."

Christina Hoff Sommers (born 1950) is an American author and former
philosophy professor who wrote the book, The War Against Boys:
How Misguided Feminism Is Harming Our Young Men (revised 2001).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christina_Hoff_Sommers

"She describes "gender feminism" as having "transcended the
liberalism" of early feminists. Instead of focusing on rights for all,
gender feminists view society through the "sex/gender prism" and focus
on recruiting women to join the "struggle against patriarchy."[16] A
reviewer of Who Stole Feminism characterized gender feminism as the
action of accenting the differences of genders in order to create what
Sommers believes is privilege for women in academia, government,
industry, or the advancement of personal agendas"

"Sommers wrote in The Atlantic, about her own book The War Against
Boys, that misguided school curriculum, based on flawed research, is a
likely cause for many problems in education including the falling
reading scores of lower-school boys. Sommers writes that there is an
achievement gap between boys and girls in school, and that girls in
some areas are achieving more than boys. She writes, "Growing evidence
that the scales are tipped not against girls but against boys is
beginning to inspire a quiet revisionism. Some educators will admit
that boys are on the wrong side of the gender gap."[19] Writing for
The New York Times, Richard Bernstein wrote of The War Against Boys,
"Observations like that lift Ms. Sommers's book from polemic to
entreaty. There is a cry in the wilderness quality to her book, a
sense that certain simple truths have been lost sight of in the smoky
quarrelsomeness of American life. "

My Comment: The "smoky quarrelsomeness of American life" describes
the current obsession of American culture with the use of the dialectic and suggests America is run by the dialectic mind.

A vigorous American Christianity, which emphasizes that transformation of the individual in John 3: 1-6,  Romans 12: 2,  II Corinthians 5: 17, Galatians 6: 15, Colossians 1: 27, and Galatians 6: 15-16, could oppose and successfully defeat that attack upon it by the Left under Marxism and the Culture derived from  Reformation Theology in the vigorous Christianity.

But that Reformation Theology has been weakened from within.

Above, I quoted Dr. Russell Blaylock as saying that people born before 1945 are less depressed.

Why would people born before 1945 be less depressed?

There are generational differences between the older generation, born before 1945 and the Baby Boomer Generation born after 1946, that is, from 1946 to 1964, and the descendants of the Baby Boomers.

One factor that Dr. Blaylock mentioned is the lowering of testosterone levels in the younger generations.

But in addition to the toxins in the food, air and water, and the estrogen mimickers in the food the Culture in the U.S. now works against masculinity.

Both the toxins and estrogen mimickers on the one hand and the Leftist Culture on the other hand could be in part responsible for the higher levels of depression in the younger generations, especially in the males.

When was Dr. Blaylock born?  Wikipedia says Dr Blaylock was born November 15, 1945.   He just barely made it before the Baby Boomer Generation began.

Here is a video by Dr. Blaylock:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4HCKhAlpEQ

I first came across the studies in American Personality and Social Psychology on the F Scale, associated with Transformational Marxist Theodore W. Adorno and the 1950 book, The Authoritarian Personality in the late fifties and early sixties.  The topic of F Scale Studies was popular in social psychology at that time.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-scale_(personality_test)

"The California F-scale is a 1947 personality test, designed by Theodor W. Adorno and others to measure the authoritarian personality.[1] The "F" stands for "fascist". The F-scale measures responses on several different components of authoritarianism, such as conventionalism, authoritarian aggression, anti-intraception, superstition and stereotypy, power and "toughness," destructiveness and cynicism, projectivity, and sex.["

https://acpress.amherst.edu/books/riseoftrump/chapter/the-study-of-authoritarianism/

"From the observation that anti-Semites were also predisposed toward intolerance to others, the authors of The Authoritarian Personality hypothesized that the systemic prejudice observed in some individuals could be measured by a series of questions probing nine distinct, covarying traits. Answers to these questions could be summed and arrayed across a scale—what Adorno and his colleagues called the F-scale, in which F stands for fascism.[5] The psychological dimension estimated by the F-scale was then dubbed the authoritarian personality, and became the name of what quickly assumed status as a groundbreaking book."

"The scientifically unfalsifiable basis of The Authoritarian Personality, faulty design of F-scale questions that created answer bias through acquiescent responses, and the multidimensional reality of the F-scale’s intended unidimensional output, all led to withering criticism of The Authoritarian Personality’s methodology.[6] It also led to new attempts to measure authoritarianism."

Psychologist Milton  Rokeach, in his 1960 book, The Open and Closed Mind, was highly critical of the methodology of the original Marxist F Scale researchers because they only focused upon Right Wing or Conservative Authoritarianism and not at all upon Left Wing Authoritarianism.  Rokeach offered his Dogmatism Scale, another paper and pencil questionnaire which tired to measure both Left Wing and Right Wing Dogmatism or Authoritarianism.

But is was my introduction to the work of Dean Gotcher in about 2004 to 2010  when I was in two Christian Yahoo Groups, who were interested in the ideas of Gotcher which gave me a much better insight into the work of the Frankfurt School of Transformational Marxism in the American universities.

See: https://www.timesexaminer.com/community/2685-dean-gotcher-speaks-on-destruction-of-the-family-and-indoctrination-of-youth

"Dean Gotcher, a Christian expert in education and psychology, spoke on Thursday, June 9 at the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia about how children are being indoctrinated with secular values in the public school system and society, while parental authority is simultaneously being destroyed.  Times Examiner readers know that America is on the verge of destruction, and although we may not understand why, Gotcher documents that we have been infiltrated, and he connects the dots by naming the perpetrators."

"Gotcher said that the modern school system is based upon groupthink, and sending your child to public school will result in the group figuratively killing your child unless he conforms.  Eventually the child will come home from school angry and rebellious towards the parents.  Destroying individualism and promoting politically-correct groupthink means that the rare “negative” individuals who speak the truth, e.g. whistleblowers, politicians, preachers, etc. are no longer welcome in society."

"Marx said that the earthly family must be destroyed, and Satan’s goal is to destroy the husband-wife relationship, because socialism is a society without parents.  Satan’s New World Order cannot exist until the authority of the father in the family and our Father in Heaven is destroyed.  The NWO plan is for children to rule and for Big Brother to be the father.  Gotcher said that America got rid of God in the fifties and that now He considers us a bastard nation and we are no longer His children.  Unfortunately, American churches have also succumbed to the consensus philosophy in an effort to expand their membership rolls and fellowship, while these principles have even infiltrated home school teaching materials.  America now stands unprotected, as a nation without a conscience will yield to global government.  We now see how the Transformation Marxists have destroyed America from within, like a homeowner who suddenly discovered that his house has been destroyed by termites, which ate away at the inside of the wood for years unnoticed, such that his house is now only a weak, disintegrating shell."

"Gotcher says that people come to many churches now to worship themselves, not God.  The emphasis is on the self and attaining one’s desires.  Instead, Gotcher says that Christianity is about seeking and doing God’s will, and this pursuit of satisfying personal desires goes back to the Garden of Eden when Eve disobeyed God’s commandment not to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge."

good thread
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
