Marx's 'Psychohistorical Materialism'.

Dear Readers,

I just posted, to a Reddit query entitled "What is Historical and Dialectical Materialism??", at --

(1) What is Historical and Dialectical Materialism?? : communism101 (reddit.com)

-- the following response:

" "Historical Materialism" and "Dialectical Materialism" are not Marx's terms. They are terms associated with Leninist and Stalinist ideology." 


 "As can be gleaned, starting at least from Marx's Theses on Feuerbach, Marx's theory is no "Materialism" in the sense of an actually Idealist, 'Matterist' ideology, holding that the Abstract Idea of Matter predominates over all other Abstract Ideas, or in the sense of a "Mechanical Materialism"." 


"Marx's theory is better described as a 'Psychohistorical Materialism', because Marx always takes the human psyche into account in his theorization of human-social [meta-]evolutions/-revolutions." 

 

"That is why Marx devoted most of his works to the [dialectical, immanent] critique of prevailing ideologies -- why his treatise Capital is subtitled "A Critique of Political Economy"."


"That is why Marx asserted, in his "Economic-Philosophic Manuscripts" of 1844, that the history of human industry, as it objectively exists, is an open book of the human faculties, and a human psychology that can be sensuously apprehended."


"That is why he asserted that '"theory itself becomes a material force"' once it has seized the hearts and minds of the majority class."


"That is also why Marx asserted, in his Grundrisse, "The recognition of the products [by the wage-worker as that worker's] own, and the judgement that [the wage-worker's] separation from the conditions of [the wage-worker's] realization is improper -- forcibly imposed -- is an enormous awareness, itself the product of the mode of production resting on capital, and as much the knell of its doom as, with the slave's awareness that he cannot be the property of another, with his consciousness of himself as a person, the existence of slavery becomes a merely artificial, vegetative existence, and ceases to be able to prevail as the basis of production." [Nicolaus, p. 463, overall italics added]."


"Marx's 'Psychohistorical Materialist' theory is best regarded as arising from a dialectical synthesis of -- via an immanent critique of both -- Mechanical Materialism and/versus Hegelian Dialectical Idealism."

"Woke"-ism: Orwell's "NewSpeak" Prediction Coming True.

Dear Reader,


I just posted the following comment to a piece entitled "A woke joke, the quackademics who want to cancel Darwin and Newton" at --

A woke joke, the quackademics who want to cancel Darwin and Newton | The Conservative Woman --

and I wrote there --

"Make no mistake: these "politically-correct", "woke" jokes are the beginning of the "thought control" and "thought policing" that Orwell predicted in his novel 1984, in the U.K. and beyond, and the beginning of the end of human liberty in the West."


"It is a huge mistake to believe that these free-speech-censorship, "cancel-culture", proto-totalitarian initiatives have anything to do with any real left-leaning politics." 


"The U.S./U.K. ruling class, which we call 'The Rocke-Nazis', has hijacked what was left of any revolutionary Left to serve their "divide-and-conquer" strategies, and their accelerating implementation of Orwellian "NewSpeak"." 


"That ruling class has also publicly announced their objective of a "95%" human population plummeting, to be accomplished by 'Global Warming Austerity' and a succession of 'Eric Pianka Plagues', leading to a New/Final Dark Age, in which the power of this ruling class will, "at last", be "secure" against the democratic aspirations of the majority class worldwide, and against the accelerating 'technodepreciation' of their capital assets."


"We urge those who "have eyes to see" the big picture of this 'Rocke-Nazi' global pogrom to consider allying with those fighting for 'Political ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY', including Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica."




I recommend likewise to you, dear reader!

Comment on the Need for a 'Marxian Theory of Marxian Theory Itself', just posted.

 Dear Readers,

I just posted the following comment --

"You are, I hold, quite correct in supposing that there must be a 'self-reflexive moment' to Marxian theory -- a 'Marxian theory of Marxian theory itself' -- and here I use the term 'Marxian theory' in place of "Dialectical Materialism", and of "Historical Materialism", because Marx did not use these terms to characterize the theory that he birthed, and because "DIAMAT" is more a dogmatic "Matterist"-idealism of the abstract idea of "Matter", a re-ideological product of the pseudo-Marxian and ultra-criminal mass murderer, Joseph Stalin. The Leninist pseudo-Marxians will not admit this 'self-reflexive moment' of Marxian theory, because they want to maintain their fraudulent 're-ideologization' of Marxian theory as a tight little catechism, upholding their dictatorial power. A thorough-going Marxian theory of Marxian theory' would also reveal the predictable degeneration of Marxian theory, in the semi-periphery of the global capitalist system, into a new state-capitalist ideology: Leninism, and all of the horrors that followed from it."

Dear Readers,

FYI:  I just posted the following comment --

‘The Haunted Human Mind’.


The Haunted Human Mind.

 

Dear Reader,

 

Ideology – in Marx’s sense – positively abounds today, more than ever before!

 

Mystification – including ideology in all of its kinds – is chiefly a matter of ‘‘‘haunted mind’’’, of a human mind filled with imaginary, fictitious entities.  


It is a matter of human minds cluttered with reifications, hypostatizations, projections and fetishes – minds haunted by ‘pseudo-subjects’, really dead mental objects, thus self-reducing those live humans themselves to ‘pseudo-objects’ as if themselves dead; hiding those minds real ‘subject-ivity’ from themselves.

 

Such minds, haunted by ‘pseudo-agents’, hide from themselves the real agents. Such minds are haunted by ‘pseudo-agents’ which have no real, actual, sensuous counterparts in the external world, except as the rituals enacted by those who believe in those ghosts, thus suppressing their own «geiste»!

The ‘Rocke-Nazi’ “New World Order”. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.


 

The Rocke-Nazi’ “New World Order.  GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.


 

Dear Reader,

 

The “New World Order”, touted by  the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ ruling faction of the capitalist ruling class of the U.S./U.K., both as ruling ideology, and as ruling class power-structure, is the ultimate, and ultimately ultra-horrific, decay-product of the ‘descendence phase’ of global [increasingly state-]capitalism.

 

The successful defeat of this ideology and power-structure by the majority of the rest of humanity requires that humanity’s largely non-violent, rule-of-law-observing and preserving transcendence of the capitalist system as its primary pre-condition.

 

George Orwell, in his novel 1984, so brilliantly and so vividly described the horrors of the ruling class plan for this “New World Order”.

 

In the process, Orwell described the overall shape of this “order” – a global system of state-capitalist police-state national dictatorships, arrayed in ever-shifting inter-nation alliances, and engaging in unending Malthusian, mass-murderous inter-alliance warfare.  This world would be, of course, a '"eugenicly"' depopulated world, maintained in its depopulation, e.g., by that unceasing Malthusian warfare.

 

The secretly ‘Rocke-Nazi’-appointed dictators of each state-capitalist nation-state are to be “responsible”, to the ‘Rocke-Nazis’, for having their own people “under their thumbs” -- all in totalitarian terror beneath their police-state rule – but also, and on the contrary, to be abject servants to the U.S./U.K. ‘Rocke-Nazi’ “Uber”-rulers, who will have all of these national dictators held, in turn, in terror, under the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ global “thumb”.

 

 

How do you like the prospect of that future?

Capitalism’s ‘Descendence’ Phase: An Excerpt. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.

 

 

Capitalisms Descendence Phase:

An Excerpt.  GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.

 

Dear Reader,

Beginning in the late 1800s, after the revelation, for the capitalist ruling class, of the ~1870 to ~1890, ~20-year “Great Deflation”, with its falling prices in nearly every consumer commodities category, and more, and falling profits, induced by accelerating industrial capitalist productivity growth, i.e., induced by an accelerating “growth of the social forces of production” – which had been predicted by Karl Marx, circa 1857+, as a deadly problem for the capitalist system, and with the writings of Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, and others under ruling class review, a new faction of the U.S./U.K. capitalist ruling class coagulated.

 

This new ruling class ruling faction we call The Rocke-Nazi faction, due to the dominance of the Rockefeller Crime[s-Against-Humanity] Family in that faction.

 

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, this ruling faction began a massive campaign of interventions, against competitive capitalism, against the interests of the U.S. working class, and against history – against the historic rise in ‘the human-social forces of human societal reproduction’ – against the global progress of the human species.

 

This massive campaign of interventions included the engineering of the Rockefeller “Eugenics” ideology of mass extermination; of the deadly-side-effects drugs-promoting AMA, together with the suppression of dietary and naturopathic healing traditions; of the 1913 Federal Reserve Act, creating a controlled hyperinflation ever since, thereby continually lowering wages; of the 1913 Federal Income tax, forcing workers and small business people to pay for the Rocke-Nazireversal of the growth of the industrial productive forces in the capitalist system’s “semi-periphery”, via Rocke-Nazi-controlled ‘servant/military dictatorships’ installed there, thereby creating the “Third World”; and of the mass exterminations of World War I, starting in 1914. …

 

Moreover, these 20th century catastrophes, all manifesting the hostility of the capitalist ruling class ruling faction to any further growth of the general social forces of production, were among only the early outcomes of this Rocke-Nazi intervention. …

 

Long before the public airings of the vicious Italian Fascist, German Nazi, etc., “Great Depression” ideologies, the Rocke-Naziswere well on their way to engineering those ideologies, especially via their ultra-vicious “Eugenics” ideology for the mass extermination of humanity. …

 

Hitler’s 1939+ turn from Rocke-Nazi Servant-Dictator to Rocke-Nazi Franken-Dictator – turning against his Rockefeller/U.K. Royal Family Dr. Frankenstein Masters -- led to a discrediting of the “Eugenics” ideology, which Hitler invoked in his Holocaust and in his regime’s exterminations of tens of millions of Slavic people and Russian people.

 

So today, the Rocke-Nazi heirs don’t talk so much about “Eugenics” anymore.

 

They have two new names for their planned 95% extermination of the human race'Global Warming Austerity' and Pandemics --  the latter of which we call 'The Eric Pianka Plague'.

Egoism versus Altruism: Some Aspects of Their Dialectic.

 

 

Egoism versus Altruism:

Some Aspects of Their Dialectic.



 

 

Dear Reader,

 

 

Egoism denigrates the human self in the form of other human selves – in the form of all human selves other than the human self that is manifesting the quality named “egoism”, by unconditionally seeking to aggrandize itself at the expense of all other human selves – aggrandizing this other-than-all-others’ self, supposedly at the expense only of all selves except itself.

 

Altruism denigrates the human self by, at least in its intension, always and unconditionally favoring any and all other human selves – all human selves other than the human self who is practicing “altruism” – regardless of the cost/harm/damage to this altruistic, other-than-all-others’-self, a self always seeking benefit for all human selves with the sole exception of itself.

 

Both altruism and egoism share this quality, and this failure, this inadequacy, of the denigration of the human self, albeit in opposing ways.

 

‘Altruistic egoism’, or ‘egoistic altruism’, does not denigrate the human self at all, but, instead, ‘upvalues’ and honors the human self both as ‘ownself’ and as ‘otherself’.

History is Converging to Humanity’s ‘Meta-Darwinian Planetary Fitness Test’. GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.


 

GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES:

Terran Human History is Converging to Humanitys Meta-Darwinian Planetary Fitness Test.



 

 

Dear Reader,

 

Terran human history is lawfully converging to humanity’s ‘meta-Darwinian planetary fitness test’.

 

This “fitness test” is META-Darwinian because it is a test, not just of the fitness of the Terran human[oid] genome, but of the present, complex unity or dialectical synthesis of that human[oid] genome and its ‘human phenome’, the “culture” of non-chromosomal, “acquired”, “learned” characteristics of this humanity.

 

It is a test of the “moral fitness to survive” of the Terran human species; a test of the capacity of this humanity at large for global human solidarity in the face of its ‘Rocke-Nazi’ adversary; a test of this humanity’s capacity to overcome the “divide-and-conquer” ideologies which the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ ruling class ruling faction has engineered to render the rest of humanity effectively comatose and unable to resist the horrific plans of that faction for global humanocide, a rest-of-humanity fighting, instead, amongst and within itself, with many at each others’ throats, just the way the ‘Rocke-Nazis’ want it.

 

Yes, and lawfully so, as a consequence of that, faction’s, predictable, mass-murderous response to the growing threat of plutocracy-dethroning, massive ‘technodepreciation’, i.e., to the threat of Marx’s “law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall”, in its “competition of capitals” and “return on investments”, full-concreteness context, at “the surface of [late-capitalist] society”, Terran humanity at large faces a humanocidal ruling class ruling faction, aiming – often quite openly, as we have documented in this blog, e.g., when voicing their “people are pollution” ideology – exceeding the ambitions, even, of the fictional Thanos, aiming at a 95% extermination of the Terran human race.

 

This ‘meta-Darwinian planetary fitness test’ is a “planetary” test, not only because the life of all of this planetary, global humanity is at stake in it, but also because this planet’s biosphere will not survive without its noosphere [Vernadsky; Chardin].

 

Without a human[oid], self-aware, technological species, Earth’s biosphere, and the biosphere of any Earth-like planet, will not long survive its own inherent hazards -- ‘exolithic bombardment’ by asteroids and comets, recurring Ice Ages, and the eventual, and, this time, permanent convergence to the restoration of “Snow-Ball Earth”, as well as due to other internal and external hazards, many only dimly grasped at present, that will soon destroy Earth’s biosphere, without advanced technological human intervention.

 

The “Dr. Strangelove”-like ‘humanocidal maniacs’ of the ‘Rocke-Nazi’ faction are blind to this consequence of their planned reversal of the human-social forces of human-societal self-reproduction, especially of their planned destruction of its core – the majority human population  itself, the working class, the producers.

 

Marx foresaw this convergence, e.g., in his famous Preface to his A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy. 

 

Will enough alive today finally get a clue, and foresee it too, before it is too late to stop it?

 

I quote again – “The human race, like a herd of witless sheep, is being slaughtered in its sleep.”
