NewsWithViews.comOne cannot understand world and national events without a knowledge of the Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte. Comte, who was French and lived from 1798 to 1857, made it his life's work to devise a plan for establishing a system to organize the entire world.Despite the fact that he was an egotistical, obnoxious little twerp, Comte was a mathematical genius who probably also had a photographic mind. As a child he read and remembered everything he could lay his hands on about mathematics, science, history, philosophy and psychology. By the time he was eleven he had already placed his own mind above those of his teachers, his parents, and his priest. He was already talking about constructing a new order for the world.Comte believed the world was evolving with each succeeding generation in the direction of greater unity and order. He decided that a system was needed to control and accelerate the evolution toward unity. His vision was a totally unified system under a one world religion which he called the Religion of Humanity. The object of worship would be humanity as a collective entity which he called the "Great Being." He appointed himself the first High Priest of Humanity.Science and human relationships were to be under the supervision of the new priestly "science" he invented which he called sociology or social science. If the system could be enlarged and made all-comprehensive, and if it could be used to unite people worldwide under a single head, Comte believed the world would become nearly perfect and permanent peace would be established. Individuality and personality would be eliminated in favor of groups which could be managed as units. He wanted everything and everyone to be organized and supervised by the High priest of Humanity and his regional priests. Comte was an organization fanatic.If you believe such unity would bring peace and happiness to the world try imagining it on a smaller scale. Take a few city blocks. Imagine an organization fanatic moving into your neighborhood and declaring that henceforth he and his cohorts will be in charge, and will be setting up a system to take care of all decision making and problem solving for residents in the area. Everyone will have to consult the system rules to ask if it is OK to plant a tree, move a rock, uproot a bush, have a party, say a prayer, change jobs, get a raise, hire a worker, buy a car, take a trip, have a child, move away, smoke a cigarette, kill a snake, trap a mouse, swat a fly, avoid a neighbor, choose a friend, build a house . . . whatever.This organization fanatic has no legitimate authority, but he is brazen, has political savvy, influential cohorts with deep pockets, and pretends to care about, and be influenced by the needs and opinions of the residents. Will you allow him to get away with taking over your neighborhood? Will you let him make all decisions affecting your family, your associations, your home, your job, your recreation, your diet, your beliefs, your education, your children, etc.? Will total supervision and the enforced unity of organization fanatics bring peace? Or will it bring resentment hate, and misery?Well, whether you like it or not, the organization fanatics are in your neighborhood, your city, town, county and state, and among your elected officials. They are turning you and your family over to new world order managers and United Nations internationalists who worship collective humanity and total organization.The larger percentage of citizens do not believe such a takeover could happen. They say the conservatives would not allow it or the liberals would not allow it; women would not allow it; parents would not allow it; our government would not allow it...etc.,...etc...etc.If you are among those complacent sleepers, let me give you an example of how the organization fanatics work to intrude on our lives and turn us over to the new world order. We will start with economic theory. There are two main economic groups claiming sanction for their theories:1. The liberal--Keynesian: Spend, spend, spend by the government. Buy benefits for the people. Debt does not matter as long as we say we are helping people. The government should interfere to help people.2. The conservative--free market economics: Private enterprise can solve the problems. Private enterprise should be left alone no matter how big and powerful a company becomes. If everybody works to benefit himself things will come out for the best. Regulation is bad. The purpose of business is to make a profit. No other moral principle is necessary.Believe it or not, these two groups can be made to cooperate. They can meet and arrive at what Comte would have called "Positive Synthesis."
POSITIVE SYNTHESIS:The government spends more, not less; but spends it in such a way as to make it possible for private enterprise (multinational corporations, Chamber of Commerce members, etc.) to pick up a piece of the action on every program. The liberals get their programs and their spending. The conservatives get their profit, and the positivist organization fanatics get their power.One formula that accomplishes the organization fanatics' purpose is the full potential formula. It says everyone has a right to reach his full potential--to satisfy his upward reach. Despite the fact that no intelligent person can ever reach his full potential in everything, the formula serves its purpose which is control.
THE HUMAN POTENTIAL FORMULA IN ACTION:
MORAL JUSTIFICATION: Everyone has the RIGHT to reach his full potential.
PSYCHOLOGICAL: Tests must discover what each person's full potential might be.
SOCIOLOGICAL: Laws will be needed to support full mental, physical, occupational, emotional and sexual potential.
ECONOMIC: Funds must be provided and institutions dedicated to full potential.
EDUCATIONAL: All persons of all ages must be educated to reach their full potential according to their psychological evaluation. All childhood education must be child centered rather than subject centered so children can be trained to reach their full potential for the new world order.The result is that everyone is responsible for all others. No one can be comfortably prosperous until all others prosper. No one can be totally happy until all others are happy. No one can be allowed to be well educated until all others reach their potential--no child left behind! No one can choose his own friends and associates because everyone is entitled to equal treatment. No one can have peace until the whole world has peace. Perhaps, viewing the picture of where we are headed one can better understand why Jesus said:
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16.
andCome unto me, all ye that labor, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11: 28-30.
