SOCIOLOGY IS NOT A SCIENCE
November 29, 2008
Sociology is not a science. It is a system of strategies being used to reach a particular goal.
What is that goal?
“the entire systematisation of human life on the basis of the preponderance of the heart over the intellect.”
That is what Auguste Comte, the father of sociology, revealed in 1851 in the preface to the first volume of his System of Positive Polity
He repeated this thought in the dedication that followed to the memory of his love, Clotilde De Vaux, stating the essential purpose of his work was:
“to systematize human life as a whole on the principle of the subordination of the intellect to the heart.”
Later, he explained:
“ . . . what is meant is, that the intellect should devote itself exclusively to the problems which the heart suggests, . .” SPP. P. 15
it! That is basis for the whole sociological dictatorship. Suggest problems
for emotional involvement and demand the intellect devise social solutions.
It can turn any personal problem into a social problem, a social problem
into a national problem, and a national problem into an international
problem belonging to all humanity. Social science treats life as a series
of problems for ‘society’ or united ‘Humanity’
to solve. When all the problems the social scientists can concoct from
any part of the world become social problems for the WORld Management
System (WORMS) to solve, the sociological dictatorship will be complete.
The basic tactic for turning personal problems into social problems is to promote otherism. To be otheristic one must abandon all thought of self and think constantly of the problems of others. The French word Comte coined to explain this concept is “altruism.”
In his Catechism of Positive Religion he explained further:
we have belongs then to Humanity; for everything comes to us from her--life,
fortune, talents, information, tenderness, energy, etc. . .
The whole of the Positive education, intellectual as well as affective, will familiarise us thoroughly with our complete dependence on Humanity, so as to make us duly feel that we are all necessarily meant for her unintermitting service.” P. 213
of the sociological problem centered strategy begins, of course, in
the schools. Social studies are presented to students as the means to
solve social problems. The curriculum designers at the National Council
For The Social Studies know their purpose is create problems for students
and also to:
“bring about changes in behavior—changes in ways of thinking, organizing content learned, reaching decisions, and participating in social action.“ 
“Any attempt by a teacher to create a problem without arousing students emotionally can only result in a pseudo-problem. When students are disturbed, upset, perhaps even angry, they are closer to having a problem than is ever the case when teachers make preservation of objectivity their only concern. A teacher can sometimes create in students a feeling that their beliefs, concepts or values are inadequate in some respect. When students are puzzled over what to believe, they are more likely to have an authentic problem in their possession.” 
Unless a student has a problem in what to believe, he has no problem at all. 
“The teacher can convert the unexamined beliefs of students into problems. The teacher can point up conflicts within the students’ patterns of beliefs, thus creating problems. The teacher can point up conflicts within the course content, thus creating problems.“ 
Unless one is aware of the problem solving technique to control behavior, the strategies are almost undetectable, and so effective millions of clueless students cooperate in efforts to destroy their own ability to act on the basis of personal intelligence. They become emotionally involved in the social problems that are dumped in their laps.
Sociology and other “social sciences” are required courses for many careers so students who become community organizers, reporters, politicos, lawyers, teachers, etc., etc., are thoroughly indoctrinated before they begin work.
Many of those who become involved in government sincerely believe they have the right, by legislation or executive privilege, to claim the service or property of anyone for any altruistic reason, at any time. They become thieves and slave masters who think of themselves as humanitarian angels.
If you do not want to be one of those who responds like a robot to every social problem someone tries to dump in your lap you have to remember to:
Think before you feel. Think before you speak. Think before you act.

Learn to say: That is not my problem. That is not our problem. Say it the very next time someone tries to dump a social problem in your lap and force you to contribute to the self sacrifice they propose
