"What's true for me isn't true for you," is today's typical 'postmodern' and/or polytheistic (every man is God)view. It's geneology of ideas goes back to Christendom during the Middle Ages when Western man rebelled against God, Original Sin, reality, moral absolutes, and immutable truth.Â
As it gained speed,Â more people joined its ranks,Â among them, Machiavelli, the Prince of Darkness; the pantheists Spinoza and Hegel; theÂ authors of dark fantasies,Â Hobbes and Rousseau and much later, Alfred Kinsey and Margaret Mead; materialist mechanists such asÂ d' Holbach; Â outright Luciferians; and of course Darwin.Â Â Germany's Tubingen schoolÂ conjured pantheistic-liberal theology, essentially replacing Yahweh with an Absolute Spirit.Â Â Then on toÂ the French Enlightenment whenÂ Feuerbach and his disciples, Marx, Comte, and Nietzsche (among others)Â audaciously proclaimed the 'death of God.'Â These men would then conjure 'new' apocalyptic quasi-paganÂ religions,' which they hoped would take the place of Christianity.Â Â
The French Revolution (aka French Terror) would provide the firstÂ staging-ground for these religions.Â Fifty-thousand people were massacredÂ at the behest ofÂ humanist 'high priests' such as Robespierre.
All of thisÂ eventually culminated in the 20th centuries totalitarian "religious" regimes:Â Progressive Fascism in America under Wilson and FDR; the Soviet Union, and National Socialism (Nazism).Â Depending on the historical data, anywhere between 100,000,000-350,000,000 people were murdered in a variety of methods by the last two regimes, while in America, terrible and lastingÂ damage was wrought to our Constitution, Bill of Rights, Rule of Law, and our traditional Judeo-Christian worldview by Progressives.Â The undermining committed then weakened our infrastructure, thus allowing for the undermining to continue to this day. What do all of 20th centuries totalitarian religions have in common? Fundamentally, they are pagan monism, and of course fatalism, which today is disguised as 'scientific' evolutionary 'determinism'. Additionally, all of them are admixtures of gnostic-pantheistic-occultism shot through by Luciferianism andÂ intermixed with quasi-Buddhism, which accounts for the postmodern notion that (a) truth and reality don't exist, (b) every person is morally autonomous because within each person is a "bit of the divine"
This brings us back toÂ the claim prefacing this commentaryÂ andÂ its underlying implication claiming there are no transcendant truths since each person's 'truth' is autonomous. Today's paganism differs greatly from the ancients in that (a) it totally lacks morality, because (b) it's all about man being God and the maker of his own morality.
