Karl Marx on Psychohistory.







Karl Marx on Psychohistory.

GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.







Dear Readers,


GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.  Karl Marx was deeply concerned with and scientifically at work upon the science of Psychology.

However, in Marx’s view, the science of Psychology was not the ideology of atomistically-conceived human-individual ‘‘‘molecules’’’, detached from all social relations infrastructure, floating in mutual detachment, mutual indifference, or mutual predation, in some kind of “human” gas.

Such was the view of that Rockefeller-whore gas-bag, Margaret Thatcher, who made war upon the British working class, and in whose ideology human society, as such, simply did not exist. Another of her unique distinctions is to have promulgated a Nazi -- racist/Eugenicist -- theory of Nazism, holding that a flaw in German genetics made Germany susceptible to Hitler -- not post-WWI national humiliation, followed by hyperinflation, followed by hyper-depression, etc., etc.  Haggie Maggie held that the British people, with their “better genes”, would never succumb to Fascism, while all the while herself laying the groundwork of Fascism in Britain, and bringing Britain to the brink of Fascism.


In Marx’s view, psychology was a collective ‘Psyche-ology’, a ‘Psyche-ology’ of what we call ‘The Human Phenome’ -- inherently a social and cultural and civilizational ‘Psyche-ology’.

All of this is manifested in the following passage from perhaps Marx’s earliest writings as what we now call a ‘‘‘Marxian’’’:  the “Economic-Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844”.  They were written on the eve of the great European uprisings of 1848, against monarchical despotism, that also signaled the birth of the modern working class movement for the transcendence of capitalism.

We quote, below, from pages 162 to 164 of Karl Marx: Early Writings, translated and edited by T. B. Bottomore, foreword by Erich Fromm [McGraw-Hill, NY:  1964].


Thus, Marx:  It can be seen that the history of industry and industry as it objectively exists is an open book of the human faculties, and a human psychology which can be sensuously apprehended.”

“This history has not so far been conceived in relation to human nature, but only from a superficial utilitarian point of view, since in the condition of alienation it was only possible to conceive real human faculties and human species-action in the form of general human existence, as religion, or as history in its abstract, general aspect as politics, art and literature, etc.”

“Everyday material industry (which can be conceived as part of that general development; or equally, the general development can be conceived as a specific part of industry since all human activity up to the present has been labour, i.e., industry, self-alienated activity) shows us, in the form of sensuous useful objects, in an alienated form, the essential human faculties transformed into objects.”

“No psychology for which this book, i.e. the most tangible and accessible part of history, remains closed, can become a real science, with a genuine content.”

“What is to be thought of a science which stays aloof from this enormous field of human labour, and which does not feel its own inadequacy even though this great wealth of human activity means nothing to it except perhaps what can be expressed in the single phrase -- “ need,” “ common need ” ?”

“The natural sciences have developed a tremendous activity and have assembled an ever-growing mass of data.  But philosophy has remained alien to these sciences just as they have remained alien to philosophy.  Their momentary rapprochement was only a fantastic illusion.  There was a desire for union but the power to effect it was lacking.  Historiography itself only takes natural science into account incidentally, regarding it as a factor making for enlightenment, for practical utility and for particular great discoveries.”

“But natural science has penetrated all the more practically into human life through industry.  It has transformed human life and prepared the emancipation of humanity, even though its immediate effect was to accentuate the dehumanization of man.”

“Industry is the actual historical relationship of nature, and thus of natural science, to man.  If industry is conceived as the exoteric manifestation of the essential human faculties, the human essence of nature and the natural essence of man can also be understood.”

“Natural science will then abandon its abstract materialist, or rather idealist, orientation, and will become the basis of a human science, just as it has already become -- though in an alienated form -- the basis of actual human life.  One basis for life and another for science is a priori a falsehood.”

“Nature, as it develops in human history, in the act of genesis of human society, is the actual nature of man; thus nature, as it develops through industry, though in an alienated form, is truly anthropological nature.”

“Sense experience (see Feuerbach) must be the basis of all science.  Science is only genuine science when it proceeds from sense experience, in the two forms of sense perception and of sensuous need; i.e. only when it proceeds from nature.”

“The whole of [human] history is a preparation for “ man ” to become an object of sense perception, and for the development of human needs (the needs of man as such).  [human] History itself is a real part of natural history, of the development of nature into man.”

“Natural science will one day incorporate the science of man, just as the science of man will incorporate natural science; there will be a single science.

The Karl Seldon on Karl Marx Series, Part 1 -- Seldon on Marxian Theory.







The Karl Seldon on Karl Marx Series, Part 1 --

Seldon on Marxian Theory.







Dear Readers,


This new series -- “Karl Seldon on Karl Marx” -- is for the purpose of my presenting to you key excerpts from Karl Seldon’s discourses, among we of F.E.D., on the topic of the work of Karl Marx.  This series begins -- in this Part 1 -- with a general statement on the F.E.D. consensus regarding Marx’s theory overall.

[Seldon:]  The point, with regard to Marx’s work, is not to ‘dogmatize’ it, or to ‘catechismize’ it -- as is the wont of the purveyors of “pure-state-bureaucratic” [“Leninist”, Trotskyist”, “Stalinist”, “Maoist”, “Castoist”, “IList”, “UNist”, etc., ad nauseam] 'proto-state-capitalism', who hope to make of their twisted ideology, which they [flagrantly and falsely] claim to be Marx’s, a kind of secular religion that will secure their totalitarian, Orwellian, mass-murderist dictatorship, and its perverted “perks”, for all futurity.  Those purveyors degenerated Marx’s theory into a new ideology, to cover-up their new, bloody pathway to capitalism, via their new variant of ['proto-state-capitalist'] “primitive accumulation”.”

“The point, with regard to Marx’s work, is to continue it, to extend it, including by continually immanently critiquing its own internal tendencies toward ‘re-ideologification -- to take up that work again where that work left off, with Marx’s untimely death, and with Engels’s insufficient efforts to edit the manuscripts that Marx left behind.” 

“This means to advance, once again, Marx’s work, in the several crucial loci which Marx left most incomplete and most unclarified, e.g., in particular --

(1) The nature and causation of capitalist crisis, in relation to Marx’s “Law of the Tendency of the Rate of Profit to Fall”;

(2) The detailed, necessary nature of the higher successor system to the capitalist system, and, especially, of the new prevailing “social relation of production” at the heart of that successor system -- the nature of the association of “the associated producers”; the nature of a ‘producers’ democracy’, and;

(3) The nature of the Marxian dialectic in general, of the systematic and historical dialectic of capitalism in particular, of the dialectic of human history as a whole, and of the Marxian dialectic of Nature as a whole.”

“Above all, this means recognizing the nature of Marxian theory itself, namely, as a fundamental theory within human social science as a whole, in contrast to which the various and pathetic mysticisms and idealisms of capitalist ideology, masquerading as social science, pale in comparison.  Marxian theory represents the most comprehensive scientific theory of human-social evolution, and of human-social ‘meta-evolution’ [i.e., of social relations of production “revolution”, driven by the growth of the social forces of production across critical thresholds], so far achieved by Terran humanity.”

“But, as such, as a scientific theory, its hypotheses must be grasped as susceptible to falsification by contravening empirical evidence, and even as seeking such falsification, as a means to continually guard against ‘re-ideologification, and as a means to continually improve those hypotheses.

A New Youtube Comment.

Dear Readers,


I have been posting the following Comment on Youtube --

"For free-of-charge works carrying forward the work of Marx, by-passing the Leninist dictatorial fraud/bait-and-switch, see the dialectics org. web site.

GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES: "Late Capitalism", or 'Descendence-Phase Capitalism', begins at that point in the global accumulation of capital, when, because of the growth of the social forces of production under capitalism [growth of "productivity"], expressed, in part, as growth of fixed-capital-plant and equipment value relative to all other elements of industrial capital value, for core, concentrated industrial capital, further continuation/acceleration of profit-motivated productivity-enhancing innovation will destroy, by write-off against current gross profits, more old industrial capital, due to pre-wear-and-tear-depreciation/amortization 'techno-obsolescence' thereof, than its adds to new industrial capital value via incremental profits, thus driving core industrial capitalist profitability secularly negative. This, starting in the late 1800s, led to extreme reactions and actions on the part of the core capitalist ruling class, leading to their pushing of the "Eugenics" ideology worldwide, to their "Federal Reserve" Central [private] Bank dictatorship in the U.S., and to the U.S. Federal Income Tax on U.S. workers' wages [state-extracted neo-surplus-value], plus World War I.  Later, it led to the "Great Depression", and to the U.S. ruling class's [e.g., the Rockefellers'] support of Eugenics and of Hitler, in particular, in Germany, and of Fascism worldwide in general, until Hitler turned 'Franken-Dictator' -- e.g., 1939 Hitler-Stalin Pact -- and decided to kill off his Rockefeller-masters, and subjugate the entire planet for himself, leading to World War II.  Since then, the Rockefeller ruling class has concentrated on propagating their "People Are Pollution" version of "ecology", preparing -- as they have publicly, if somewhat 'sequesteredly', repeatedly stated -- for their planned "~95% population reduction" Global Warming Austerity Pogrom, their "FINAL SOLUTION TO THE HUMANITY PROBLEM"."

Just Posted a Comment ...

Dear Readers,


FYI:  I just posted the following comment to a post at ScienceFiction.com that mentioned Apple's plan to develop an adaptation for television of Asimov's Foundation series --

Those who have been moved by Asimov's Foundation 'heptalogy', might want to know about a pseudonynmous group that has derived seven "simultaneous" 'psychohistorical-dialectical [meta-]equations', using a new mathematics of their own discovery, and that apply to the real world of a single planet, Earth, now poised between the alternatives of a New/Final Dark Age, and a first GLOBAL Renaissance -- a group that has devised a '''Seldon Plan''' for planet Earth. The works of this group are available for free-of-charge download via www.dialectics.org .

The “Yellow Vest” Insurgency in France +. GLOBAL, HUMAN-SPECIES-STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.







The “Yellow Vest” Insurgency in France + -- The Popular/Populist Global Fight-Back Against the Rocke-Nazis’‘Global Warming Austerity’ Stealth Humanocide Pogrom has Begun!

GLOBAL, HUMAN-SPECIES-STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.






Dear Readers,


GLOBAL, HUMAN-SPECIES-STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES -- 

The “Yellow Vest” insurgency in France, now spreading to Belgium and beyond, is an early chapter in the inevitable popular uprising against the primary ‘Humanocidal’ Pogrom of the Rocke-Nazi, 'Meta-Nazi' plutocracy:  ‘Global Warming Austerity’. 

This will be a fight to the death against the ‘Global Warming Austerity’ ploy of that Rockefeller-dominated plutocracy, which is purportedly designed to “Save The Planet”, but is really aimed at “SAVING ROCKEFELLER POWER”, and all of the perverted perks of that “above the law” Separate Power, by escalating energy costs for ordinary citizens -- e.g., monthly utility costs for electricity, natural gas, etc. -- so high that their very lives become “unaffordable”, as detailed in earlier blog-entries hereto.

But this fight to the death against the HUMANOCIDAL, ultra-sadistic psychopaths and sociopaths of the Rockefeller ruling faction, will force that ruling faction into non-violent capitulation -- as it did the ultra-vicious psychopaths and sociopaths of the Russian Stalinist ruling bureaucracy -- if enough of a majority or plurality of citizens, world-wide, wakes up in time to their ultra-peril at the hands of the Rockefeller ‘Global Warming Austerity’ Global Pogrom.

Some basic background on the “Yellow Vests” movement is available via the following URL --
