The Hegelian Principle

The Hegelian Principle Helps Explain How the Powerful Got That Way

How did the powerful gain power over the rest of us?

In a time when the power and freedom of the average American is
being eroded at terrific speed, many of us wonder how this could be
happening.

What we may not realize it that the powerful have specific tools or
principles to use to con the rest of us into surrendering our power to
them.

One of the most effective principles used in the last several years
with great success is the Hegelian Principle.

The principle is simple, consisting of only three steps toward a
preconceived goal.

Once you are able to see how it works, you may want to analyze
many of the events unfolding around you in terms of this principle.

As the principle is often used today, it can be explained as:

Step One: Create a problem or conflict - Perceive a problem that
exists and build it up out of proportion to its actual importance,
or create a problem or conflict where none existed before.

Step Two: Publicize the problem and create opposition to it -
Relentlessly place stories about this problem in the major media
outlets.

Report on it daily until it becomes a steady drumbeat and a
truism for the public who then begin clamoring for a solution
to this problem.

Step Three: Offer a solution - The best solutions are those that
appeal to the emotions of the public and make them think something
really good is being done for them, when in fact, something really
bad is being done to them.

This solution is one that the public never knew it needed until
the conditioning of Step Two was successfully completed.

A simple example of the Hegelian Principle at work was the food
industries' conning of the public to throw out their butter and run
to buy margarine.

It goes like this:

Step One: Food industry is geared up to provide food for soldiers
during WWII.

When war ends, food industry needs to turn its capacity into
something it can sell during peace time.

It wants to use cheap ingredients to make a high margin product
and decides on the manufacture of margarine, but needs to find
a way to get the public to buy it.

They decide on a scheme to turn the people against butter.

Step Two: Food companies spread propaganda convincing the
populace that butter is deadly to their health.

Appeal to fear.

Get doctors and nutritionists to help in the spreading of propaganda.
Sponsor medical studies to "prove" that butter is deadly.

Convince housewives who had grown up healthy while eating butter
that they are placing their families in jeopardy if they serve butter.

Step Three: Food companies rush in to save the American
public from having to put butter on their tables.

They present margarine.

Women who want their families to love them stampede to
buy margarine.

Voila!

One of the classic and most sinister examples of the Hegelian
Principle involves the Nazi's rise to power that quickly followed
the burning of the German Parliament building, the Reichstag,
on the night of February 27, 1933.

Step One: Adolf Hitler, the new Chancellor of Germany, has no
intention of abiding by the rules of democracy that installed
him into the Chancellor position.

He intends only to use those rules to legally establish himself
as dictator as quickly as possible, and begin the Nazi revolution.

But opposition lurks in his path.

The Nazis, led by Joseph Goebbels, devise a scheme to burn
down the Reichstag, the building where the elected officials of
the republic meet to conduct the daily business of government,
and blame it on the Communist opposition.

Step Two: Hitler acts as though he is enraged over the fire
and speaks out that the German people have been too soft
on the Communists, proclaiming that "every Communist official
must be shot. All friends of the Communists must be locked up.
And that goes for the Social Democrats and the Reichsbanner as
well!"

Hitler directs the newspaper's coverage of the fire.

He and Goebbels put together papers full of lies about a
Communist plot to violently seize power in Berlin.

The newspaper proclaimed that only Hitler and the Nazis
could prevent a Communist takeover.

Step Three: Hitler demands an emergency decree to overcome
the crisis. There is little resistance, and the decree is signed
"for the protection of the people and the State".

According to the decree, "Restrictions on the personal liberty, on the
right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press;
on the rights of assembly and association; and violations of the
privacy of postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications and
warrants for house searches, orders for confiscations as well as
restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits
otherwise prescribed."

The Nazi dictatorship is established.

The Hegelian Principle was first described by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich
Hegel, a 19th century German philosopher.

The principle defined a method used to produce a oneness of mind on
any given issue or thought.

Since its conception, it has been used repeatedly and very
successfully to gain power, status, money and control.

The original terms for the three steps were Thesis, Antithesis,
and Synthesis.

Under Hegel's theory, one type of government or society (Thesis)
would give rise to another that was the opposite of this type of
government or society (Antithesis).

This would result in conflict between the two types since they
were opposites.

After thesis and antithesis ideas battle each other for an extended
time without either side winning, both sides become ready for change.

This change (Synthesis) is then brought about by the creation of a
third type of government or society.

These three steps are easily seen in the example of the Nazi rise to
power, in which the Democratic government battled the Communist
form of government.

When the public was conditioned to ask for change, a new
government system was installed.

The principle is often seen at work in the downhill slide of education
toward the goal of ensuring children grow up unable to be intelligent
participants in their democracy.

Step One - The federal government wants to assert control over
the educational system, previously the providence of the states.

As a way of doing this, the Elementary and Secondary Education
Act (ESEA) is created as a tool to gain power by doling out money
to the school districts if they would accept the strings attached.

Slowly but surely the pot of federal dollars that could be had
is increased, while state support is undermined.

Under ESEA mandates, academic programs are replaced by
social programs.

Step Two - As academic programs are displaced, test scores drop,
and juvenile problems increase as children become more and more
illiterate, and parental and public outcry becomes louder.

Teachers are made the fall guys for the illiteracy of their students.

Attempts at fixing the problems involve the creation of ever more
social programs, and fail to address the issue of children's failure
to learn.

Parents are blamed as schools make inroads into controlling
the parent/child relationship by pitting parents against their
own children over school issues.

Education reform is officially sanctioned as Bush announces himself
the education president, proclaiming that "The people have been
heard. We must do something about our ailing education system."

Step Three - We are in step three now. Progressive socialist
education is upon us.

We are creating a generation of people incapable of thinking,
reasoning, speaking and questioning.

The individual will soon be extinct, having been stripped of his
uniqueness and become no more than a commodity to be valued
accordingly.

With the loss of uniqueness goes the loss of independence and
the ability to advocate for one's self.

The new generation emerges as a willing participant in its own
enslavement.
