What is a (Hegelian) Dialectic?
Simply put, a "dialectic" is an argument ("thesis") which demands an opposing argument
"anti-thesis"). Through the process of the two conflicting sides, a solution ("synthesis") is
reached which represents a compromise of the two seemingly insurmountable opinions. This
solution then serves as a new argument ("thesis") and the entire process is repeated.
Each time the dialectical process is repeated, the compromise serves to shift society away from
its original thesis -- that is the point.
Hence, the process repeats...
Thesis --> anti-thesis --> synthesis (which becomes the new thesis)
Thesis --> anti-thesis --> synthesis (new thesis)
Thesis --> anti-thesis --> synthesis
The Hegelian dialectic is a dialectical process by which a pre-determined idea ("synthesis")
can be forced upon an individual, group, or society at large without their knowing they were
manipulated into accepting the ideas they would ordinarily reject. Over and over again, the
process is repeated. With each new synthesis, society is shifted further away from its original
thesis. This is how the Hegelian dialectic works.
Conflicts are handy tools to force society to accept changes that ordinarily they wouldn't tolerate.
Dialectical "arguments" are made on a daily basis. Social engineers who wish to manipulate society
to a pre- determined outcome have learned that the most effective way to do so is through endless
conflict. Therefore, they engineer conflicts -- dialectical "arguments" -- on a daily basis, to the point
where we have never had so many conflicts. Our crisis equals their "opportunity".
If you wonder why we have so many problems in the world, now you know. Dialectical conflicts are
reflected in the daily headlines every day. Each headline represents an argument -- a side in
the conflict which is designed to ultimately lead us toward a new synthesis which will be turned
into a new thesis.
We have also been conditioned to believe that "change" is an inevitable and a good thing, not
completely untrue. The Hegelian process requires rapid and abrupt changes to happen and
to be started again before the outcome ("synthesis") has been fully considered. To facilitate this
the mass media pumps out continuous conflicts, whether they are real or not, to forestall any
thoughtful reasoning on "what just happened".
Obviously you must disengage from this system before your thoughts become your own again,
otherwise you will continue in the ongoing conditioning process of the Hegelian dialectic.
