By davidswanson - Posted on 23 May 2012
We often know WHAT exists and WHERE the failures are, History provides us with an endless set of empirical facts where the FAILED MINDSET keeps repeating through decades, centuries, even milleniums, through new forms of the same FAILED MINDSET, but never trying to find a common denominator to account for HOW, this failed mindset keeps repeating itself. If we actually looked carefully through History, we would also be able to explain, not only HOW, but WHY these failed outlooks, ideologies keep repeating themselves, but then could RECONSTRUCT, REVERSE this generic failed mindset, and like REVERSE ENGINEERING, could come up with the CAUSUAL ELEMENTS to produce another kind of history, , another kind of mindset and another form of Human Nature. That is what makes History and Philosophy so important because real History is not only explaining sets of facts and counter facts, but piecing all its contradictory elements into a SOCIAL THEORY that moves Humanity forward.
We need to get reacquainted with all social theorists and elements of Social Theory to offer Humanity a way to deal with class dogmas, class myths, both in religious or secular clothes to end all support for deformed (class) history, class deformed language and terminologies, so that anyone can confront all the ignorance, racist, and fascist arguments that Liberalism and Conservatism, any class ideology offers. These failed class parties, failed class states are linked to class hierarchies and its generic (Patriarchal) class mechanism, which began the enslavement of Humanity, and deformed its HUMAN NATURE, thus producing ALL failed arguments, failed mindsets. It is an imposed, deformed outcomes as NATURAL when it clearly is UNNATURAL, CORRUPT, DESPOTIC AND TOTALITARIAN. We need to develop our own social language to expose the false mindset, false claims all class ideologies make that their deformed class outcome is a SOCIAL PRINCIPLE, when it is a CLASS PRINCIPLE.
Since All ideologies, mostly class ideologies, start with the assumption that social principles guides their outlook, so those who produce a consistent , inclusive, universal, social, moral construct would be able to take on all class politicians, class parties, class ideologies, for a SOCIAL STRAGETY TO END CLASS HISTORY, AND A NEW FORM OF HUMAN NATURE, SOCIAL NATURE. The world needs a social agenda, world wide and a SOCIAL MANIFESTO to explain not only the failed mindset, degenerating principle of Late Capitalism, but the whole of class history. Here is mine, it offers an explanation why Social revolutions have failed so far, and how a global social solution could end class history, and its failed mindset permanently:
A SOCIAL MANIFESTO AND HISTORICAL THEORY
THE WHOLE IDEA THAT WE SHOULD EXPECT SOCIAL OUTCOMES, SOCIAL PROMISES FROM BETRAYING CLASS POLITICIANS IS THE GENERAL FAILURE OF ALL CLASS DEFORMED CIVIL SOCIETIES. EXPECTING TWO, OR DOZENS OF CLASS PARTIES TO OFFER REAL SOCIAL SOLUTIONS IS LIKE ASKING TWO DONKEYS TO PRODUCE AN ELEPHANT. IT AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN. HOWEVER, TWO DONKEYS COULD MORPH INTO ELEPHANTS, CONSERVATIVES, WHO THEN MORPH INTO TOTALITARIANISM/FASCISM THROUGH THE PRINCIPLE OF CLASS DEGENERATION AND THE ORWELLIAN CLASS/TOTALITARIAN FUNCTONS AND ITS DEFORMING GLOBAL CLASS HIERARCHIES. WE MUST DISMANTLE , DISSOLVE THESE ENSLAVING FUNCTIONS OF PATRIARCHY AND STOP VOTNG FOR OUR OWN DIS EMPOWERMENT, BETRAYAL.
