Critical Therory

Hidden Influence The Rise of Collectivism 2015 Documentary YouTube

Documentary by Richard Heathen

Traditional theory uncritically reproduces the existing society, while critical theory articulates activity striving to transform society.   Horkheimer wrote: “There is a human activity that has society itself for its object.  The aim of this activity is not simply to eliminate one or another abuse, for it regards such abuses as necessarily connected with the way in which the social structure is organized.  Although it itself emerges from the social structure, its purpose is not, either in its conscious intention, or in its objective significance, the better functioning of any element in the structure.  On the contrary, it is suspicious of the very categories of better, useful, appropriate, productive, and valuable, as these are understood in the present order”

This criticism of oppression and exploitation leads to the struggle for a better society.  Quite simply you the person of flesh and blood are of free will and spirit, any state with an Ayn Rand ideology trying to put a spin on social behavior where we become divided will sink to the modern-day meditation of Fuck That!

From the film maker Richard Heathen:

Hidden Influence:  The Rise of Collectivism is the first film in a 3 part saga.  This chapter documents how the ruling class, through their billion dollar foundations, have infiltrated the public education system in the west and have used it as a tool to indoctrinate children into a totalitarian ideology.  This film explores the chronological paper trail uncovered by Charlotte Iserbyt, who was fired from her post as the Senior Policy Advisor for the United States Department of Education in 1982 when she released classified documents discussing the use of technology, specifically computers to psychologically manipulate American students.  We will then examine an investigation into the influence of these foundations, launched by the United State congress in the 1950’s. Finally we will fast forward to today and look at how the philosophy these foundations have sponsored for the last 100 years has, and continues to effect the education system today, and how Canadian children are being indoctrinated into the same collectivist brainwashing as their American counterparts.  At the same time we will examine the role of these foundations in promoting radical, authoritarian ideologies on college and university campuses.

  1. I used to teach critical thinking to Freshmen and They rarely understood because High School asked them to question naught.


    • Thanks for that share:

      Well here’s a spin on all theorist on society, the humans are not done evolving and with that we seem to be turning towards a truer course which involves feelings. Feeling our way out of scenarios instead of thinking them like ideology, idiot thinking. Your comment shows we need to adjust that course of reason, history can have too many contingencies where a lie becomes the truth. Need to be that life boat for the youths and true stories of home and it’s architect.

      • Yes. I’m big on feelings. But not as ultimate guide nor tool to be relied upon. Without foundation of balanced thought we are subjected to tempestnof whimsy. Compassion isn’t emotional it’s the result of knowledge, decisions. People do not realize this xxx


      • Key in what you say, “foundation of balance” that emotion learned, knowledge of compassion. This thread is going deep; as humans do we think to laugh or cry? Seems the mind is separate from the heart, the mind can’t feel the heart and the heart can’t think the mind but a mix is created that will base decisions on emotions. The Native Americans were most passionate through the knowledge (you point out) of the land but what separated them from today’s society was the understanding of the ‘balance’ around them, in which they fought. I remember an old Indian saying, “be still and listen to what in life, is calling” now we’re not going to understand this from machine shop or class room but a place where you’re involved in the circle of life. This is where you feel it, the first 65 ft. of ocean from shore, anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million species the plankton supplies 70 to 80 percent of all oxygen. The shore line is the nursery of the planet, probably the closest we can come to the 90 percent of biodiversity which makes us a spoke in the wheel. I truly believe once man understands all matter that this will be humanities Holy Grail the balance we’re in this together, hardly anyone feels that today an economy of machine hearts and machine minds.

      • If it isn’t too late then I hope so very much. Marx saw the alienation of being separated from the process that’s akin to your perspective of being where you feel it. Like the Kate Bush song feel it! Yes I could have an entire conversation working her music into what I say!♡♡♡♡♡


      • Wow my 3rd grade teacher Mrs Schertler is rolling over in her grave, the only time my paperwork looked good was during Christmas with all those red marks, she would put me behind the piano where I became interested in mechanics. I frickin knew there would be spell checker.
