"What thinking produces
is not truth but "ideologies." This word means, in the context of
Marxian philosophy, a disguise of the selfish interest of the social
class to which the thinking individual is attached. It is therefore
useless to discuss anything with people of another social class.
Ideologies do not need to be refuted by discursive reasoning; they
must be unmasked by denouncing the class position, the social
background, of their authors."
Bradford attempts to illuminate;
You see, we have ideologies. We are members of the Michael School
club, we have got the letters, the baseball caps (which
incidentally, I want to get a start up company that really produces
neat baseball caps that have STEINER boldly on them for distribution
and mail order) plus many here play in the Steiner Rock Band and
School orchestra. There is the Eurythmy glee club, those rollicking
cheerleaders with their sexy outfits...And those sour Rabbinical
Waldorf Teachers all dressed in the latest Steiner Smock.
If someone were to argue with us, well for them, Ideologies are as
good as races, relgions, country clubs and gated communities. In
fact think of Gated Communites. We have them all over America.
Hopefully those Gated Communities will contain demographically like
minded, like incomed souls with the same values. The same watered
down and bullshit American values, but that is what we pay for in
living in a Gated Community. You can go to any dinner party and
really just hear the same ole stuff because of the social class that
you have chosen to hide in.
If you are a member of the Michael club... you might get responses
like, "I prefer to discuss it this particular way, because what
would be the point in saying, the people in my low rent, Ahrimanic
mind set community, my materialistic community, really don't care
for your stinking Steiner ideologies". For the world is now in a
place where pockets of fragmented belief systems collect themselves,
and incestually talk amongst themselves.
If suddenly a different race or religion were to suddenly move in or
rent a house in this already distinct community, well, people would
take notice, they would respond. Prejudice would fly. OOOps there
goes the neighborhood. The housing values go down, people leave the
schools.. a real Love Canal.. of ecological or soico-ecological
poison is released.
How can I better put this? The thinking mind, the skull, the very
substance of our souls, and Christine is right to point to idiots in
science trying to prove humanity has a soul or that humans have
astral out of the body experience, but they didn't ask us. The
article she presented was right to declare that such thinking is
beyond the scope of most thinkers and it would entail crossing the
line to another "Ideology".
These Ideologies, for some of us who have failed to catch up, have
nothing to do with great bogus humanitarian brotherhood and global
cosmopolitan hand holding and tree hugging, no. Rather they have to
do, with how the intellect, the materialistic intellect has defined,
not sweeping spiritual issues, but rather, pockets of isolated,
protected, enfranchised and specific communities of ideologies.
Gated communites, members only clubs and members only lists.
You see how even a list becomes a Gated Village and a visitor would
stay clear of treating the content or substance as anything but a
highly protected klan of Ideologies, which each differnt brain and
soul gathers around itself? For them, this has nothing to do with
the objectivity of the world but rather appears as the highest level
of the subjectivity of the world.
