THE HEGELIAN DIALECTIC
A theory of social change advanced by German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
(August 27, 1770 November 14, 1831):
"THESIS + ANTI-THESIS = SYNTHESIS"
What it boils down to is this: If you raise enough hell (anti-thesis) in opposition to some commonly-accepted point of view held by society (thesis), and keep it up, sooner or later mainstream society will lose faith in the commonly-accepted point of view and tentatively accept the opposing point of view (synthesis).
Karl Marx and Frederic Engels used Hegel's Dialectic to back up their communist economic theory, and commies have been using it ever since. Remember the (communist and/or communist-backed) anti-war protesters of the '60's? At the time they were in a distinct minority. But how common is the anti-war view today? Now that I mention it: How common is the communist view of everything today? And how many people recognize that it is the communist point of view today?
I have been appalled more than once by ignorami who have listened to me quoting the Declaration of Independence, or the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights, and have asked if the political ideology I was advocating was ... Communism. Sigh.
Item: If you want South Africa to become a communist-governed nation, call for divestiture (stopping investments) in South Africa on the grounds that the Afrikaaner government enforces apartheid, and you will bring down the Afrikaaner government so a dirty, murdering communist sonofabitch by the name of Nelson Mandela can become president and rich, while the victims of apartheid starve and are ravaged by HIV.
Item: If you want Americans to give up their privacy and allow themselves to be databased and be required to show their papers every time some government thug demands it (a la 1930's Germany) then create a huge uproar about illegal immigration and how it is destroying the country, and sooner or later the people will accept totalitarianism for protection -- since ultimately, some form of electronic REAL ID is the ONLY WAY of ensuring that only American-born or naturalized citizens are walking around loose. (Of course it will turn out to be less than 100% accurate, but the PTB won't care; they will have their target population under lock and key.)
Item: If you want to destroy the grass roots militias springing up all over the country because they are a threat to corrupt and totalitarian government, steal a Stinger missile, launch it at a civilian airliner, and blame it on the militias. (TWA 800: That was the plan, but they overplayed their hand and the militia they planned to blame it on didn't fall for the bait they offered, so they had to wing it.)
Item: If you want to go after the militias again, blow up a government building with satchel charges in the basement while a truck full of fertilizer is parked on the street out front, and blame it on disaffected militia members. (Except that plan fell apart when they discovered their 30-member militia group in Idaho consisted entirely of one militia leader and twenty-nine government undercover agents provocateur trying to get the group to go blow something up. So they had to shut up their patsy by executing him and throwing anyone else who could blow the whistle into solitary confinement and promise them a quick exit from this mortal coil if they opened their mouth.)
Item: If you want Americans to give up their right to travel anonymously, crash some airplanes into some buildings and blame it on terrorists. Then everyone will be willing to show their ID before boarding an airplane -- or a train, or a bus, and eventually even private cars -- all in the name of keeping us safe from terrorism, of course.
The Hegelian Dialectic is not a new plan; as I said, Hegel came up with it around 1825; Marx and Engels used it in 1847 (and ever since), and Adolph Hitler used it when he had his brownshirts burn down the Reichstag (government building) and blamed it on "terrorists" so the people would give him more power to deal with Germany's "enemies." Hmm. Remind you of anything going on today? Like TWA 800? Waco? The Oklahoma City Murrah Building? The Twin Towers?
