First we had the Bush/Cheney Administration that thought you could use killing/war to bring world democracy.
They thought the New World Order of Peace needed Mass Surveillance and Purging of Those Who Criticized Them With Programs Like U.S. Government Gang Stalking.
They Thought the End Justified the Means and so you could use Torture and not betray the values you professed as a nation.
The Excess of this New World Order Thinking – Globalist Thinking – which now counts Democrats, Neocons and Deep State as its followers – is the Attack on the First Amendment, Group Think, Purging of people like Rosanne who dare to violate the Group Mores.
The Antithesis of this is the Donald Trump phenomena. But the Antithesis – if it will eventually lead to the synthesis that advances humanity – must go further. We need Freedom Caucus leader Jim Jordan as Speaker of the House to balance the ship created by the Undifferentiated Mass Men/the Dick Cheney Mass Men/the Democratic Party First Amendment Trashing Mass Men.
We need Jim Jordan’s emphasis on Freedom, individualism, capitalism to remind us what is wrong with the trend toward socialism, this what is best for the group phenomena which has lost a realization of the importance of the individual.
My take is that the synthesis will be a renewed respect for the “I” of individualism such as seen in the philosophy of Martin Buber who says without a strong “I” there can be no relationship: we cannot say “Thou.”
What this synthesis, I think, will involve is a recognition of “the between” – as Buber calls it, as representing the real reality. But this “between” is not Group Think, not the Undifferentiation of Cheney’s New World Order which needs repressive programs like Government Gang Stalking – rather the between is the space created when a strong “I” – individual – says “Thou.” That happens when assumptions are suspended and real dialogue takes place.
Real dialogue is what is missing today. It is missing because you need a person with a solid sense of self, a real individual who has strong boundries and acknowledges the separateness of other people who have a right to their separate thoughts, speech, beliefs for real dialogue to take place.
Where we are seems chaotic because it is chaotic. We are in a period of transition. But if Hegel is right – the synthesis will come. But first we must have a more developed antithesis.
But before that can happen we need people like Jim Jordan as speaker of the House to give us the other point of view – the antithesis of Group Think/Deep State Unconsciousness/the State Secrets Doctrine that conceals what really is.
I Believe Part of Coming To I-Thou Is Rejecting The Politically Correct Idea People With A Shadow Must Be Purged. It means accepting Real People - and we all have Shadows - Can Hold Public Office.
I had voted for Obama when he first ran for President because he promised "Change." I had hopes that he would be the antithesis of the Dick Cheney Neocons. But he turned out to be a Deep State Puppet. And now the whole Democratic Party has followed in his footsteps.
America’s Path Must Be A Path of Integration
The problem with America today is it is an Either/Or Country. Having only two parties – a Democratic and Republican Party – contributes to that.
Integration comes when all parts of the Whole are given their due. That’s why the solution to America’s problem is not the Undifferentiation of the New World Order with its mass surveillance/Government Gang Stalking/constant wars.
Rather the solution is more consciousness/more differentiation/more individuality/clear boundries – a constant dialogue with multiplicity – which results in higher and higher integration.
What is required is a shift in thinking from a theory of order based on the Cartesian grid in which points independently exist in space to what David Bohm calls an implicate order where regions have a total order enfolded into it.
Thus instead of a world based on Aristotelian logic where A is not equal to B. We have an implicate order where A is equal to B is equal to C is equal to D.
In the Implicate Order there is only transformation – no static objects, no static events, no static interpretations, no “isms” or static theories or ideas, no maps that pretend to be the territory.
In the implicate order there is only ongoing dialogue – ongoing evolution, growth – Change.
Only in such an America can there be integration, an ongoing integration – a New Dialogical Reality.
What kind of Americans would create such an integrated society? Open Americans. Americans who say that the means is more important than the end. Americans who are process-oriented, who believe truth is ever evolving.
What is required is Americans who can contain their fear, imaginative Americans who can envision a world that has not yet been born and constantly work toward creating it.
It is when we are dissatisfied with what we have, when we have really exposed the shadow of America, the hypocrisy of America (for instance having an American Stasi/U.S. Government Gang Stalking) that we can look at what has been wrong, and envision a world without it, and dedicate ourselves to creating an America without it.
I-It relating is totally subjective. The I looks at everything in relation to their self. Their desires and concerns are a barrier to real meeting. There is contrivance and hypocrisy. Imposition characterizes I-It Relating as the I tries to impose their views, their wants on the other.
