Barack Obama (Neo-Marxism, Gradualism & Slick Deceptions)

Ok, a qualifier is in order up front. The author for much of the info below is of the persuasion that there is a World Order that secretly manipulates the world etc. Coupled with that paranoid assumption is a strong religious tone (I admittedly took the liberty of editing out the religious portions). Now, all that said, paranoia and religion aside (at least for now) there is a bounty of theory here that is hugely necessary to understand. Why? Because it goes toward the thought processes linked to infiltration, transformation, altering the public’s belief system through graduated compromise. This is good stuff to think about. Right now it oozes Obama et al. Read all the passages and related links. Some ventures off into CFR stuff but it is enough to make you think about the process of CHANGE.   

“ALL THE elements were present: the individual stories told by real people of their situations and hardships, the packed-to-the rafters crowd, the crowd’s chanting of key phrases and names, the action on the spot of texting and phoning to show instant support and commitment to jump into the political battle, the rallying selections of music, the setting of the agenda by the power people. The Democratic National Convention had all the elements of the perfectly organized event, Saul Alinsky style.”

“Barack Obama’s training in Chicago by the great community organizers is showing its effectiveness. It is an amazingly powerful format, and the method of my late father always works to get the message out and get the supporters on board. When executed meticulously and thoughtfully, it is a powerful strategy for initiating change and making it really happen. Obama learned his lesson well”.

“I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.”

Notes on Saul Alinsky and Neo-Marxism:“Alinsky’s tactics were based, not on Stalin’s revolutionary violence, but on the Neo-Marxist strategies of  Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the dialectic process rather than a bloody revolution, Gramsci’s transformational Marxism was so subtle that few even noticed the deliberate changes.        

  

“From Twisting Truth Through Group Consensus: “Tension, created by diversity, is essential to the dialectic process. It energizes members and — when manipulated by well-trained facilitators — produces Synergy. You can’t guide people toward synthesis (compromise) unless there are opposing views — both “thesis and antithesis.” That’s why the consensus process must include all these elements:

  • a diverse group

  • dialoguing to consensus

  • over a social issue

  • led by a trained facilitator

  • toward a pre-planned outcome.

The true dialectic group never reaches a final consensus, for “continual change” is an ongoing process: one step today, another tomorrow. To permanently change the way we think and relate to each other, our leaders must set the stage for conflict and compromise week after week, year after year. Dialectical thinking and group consensus must become as normal as eating. Eventually, people learn to discard their old mental anchors and boundaries — all the facts and certainties that built firm convictions. They become like boats adrift, always ready to shift with the changing winds and currents.”   

“Total Quality Management [TQM] is based upon the Hegelian dialectic, invented by Georg Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel, a transformational Marxist social psychologist. Briefly, the Hegelian dialectic process works like this: a diverse group of people (in the church, this is a mixture of believers (thesis) and unbelievers (antithesis), gather in a facilitated meeting (with a trained facilitator/teacher/group leader/change agent), using group dynamics (peer pressure), to discuss a social issue (or dialogue the Word of God), and reach a pre-determined outcome (consensus, compromise, or synthesis).”

 “When (a firmly held belief) is dialogued (as opposed to being taught didactically) between believers and unbelievers… and consensus is reached – agreement that all are comfortable with – then the message of (the firmly held belief) has been watered down… and the participants have been conditioned to accept (and even celebrate) their compromise (synthesis).  The new synthesis becomes the starting point (thesis) for the next meeting, and the process of continual change (innovation) continues.”  “The fear of alienation from the group is the pressure that prevents an individual from standing firm for the truth of the (firmly held belief), and such a one usually remains silent (self-editing).  The fear of man’s (rejection) overrides the fear (the firmly held belief).  The end result is a ‘paradigm shift’ in how one processes factual information.”
