The Evil LongSkirt of Oppression is out to Oppress


WWW
« on: November 25, 2014, 03:59:55 PM »

(...)
The revolution is not a unified ideology or agenda at all, but rather a way of seeing the world, (...) the one common thread running through the revolution since the 13th and 14th centuries. According to de Carvalho, revolutionary thought as we know it did not exist before about the 13th century.

Instead, this revolutionary inversion has its origins in an early Christian heresy (arrogating to itself the role of Christ the avenger) and has at least three aspects:

1-Inversion of the perception of time.

Normal individuals, based on common sense, see the past as something immutable and the future as something that can be changed (it is contingent, as de Carvalho puts it). Not so the leftist revolutionary, who sees the utopian future as a goal that eventually will be reached no matter what and the past as something that can be changed, through reinterpretation (what we call “rewriting history”), to accommodate it.
(...)

2-The inversion of morality

De Carvalho points out that because the revolutionary (leftist) believes implicitly in a future utopia where there will be no evil, this same revolutionary believes that no holds should be barred in achieving that utopia. Thus, his own criminal activities in achieving that goal are above reproach. The author cites Che Guevara, who said that the revolutionary is the “highest rank of mankind.” Thus, armed with such moral superiority, Che was able to cold-bloodedly murder his political enemies wholesale.

To the revolutionary mind, it is normal that the revolutionary should pay no mind to the bourgeois morality, because after all, nothing he does can be construed as immoral, since the sum total of his actions hasten the revolution when justice will prevail. This is why conservatives frequently refer to the Left’s hypocrisy (for example, environmental champion Al Gore’s 20-fold electricity consumption compared to yours and mine).
(...)

3-Inversion of subject and object

When revolutionaries like Che, and Hitler’s operatives, for example, killed innocent people, they would blame the people they killed for “making” them do it by refusing to go along with their revolutionary notions. This is one example the author gives of the inversion of subject and object.

Olavo de Carvalho is a well-known Brazilian philosopher and writer, many of whose articles have graced the pages of Laigle’s Forum.

This is -almost- as much fun as Maria filling the prayer threads with 'Lord have mercy's when she is pissed off.


But not really.

There is a right wing religion and a left wing religion. And neither one of them has anything to do with the religion of Christ.

LOL!  Pitiful.  This thread is just another rage-fueled extension of the "I'm Mad People Called Me Out On My 'Modestwear' Fetish" thread.  How dare you Leftists (read: anyone who disagrees with me) ruin my posting pictures of girls in ankle-length denim skirts....oooooohh....ankle-length denim skirts....aaaagggghhh...
