Relativismus
BW 185-190

 

KultCult


 

Dilemma des Relativismus

Im Allgemeinen schwingt Relativismus auf einem Bewusstseinswert von 185, der erkenntnistheoretische Relativismus 190 – nach der Skala des Bewusstseins.

 

Vertreter des Relativismus argumentieren beispielsweise mit der verallgemeinernden Aussage

Alles ist relativ!

Ein übliches Argument zur Entkräftung relativistischer Standpunkte ist deren intrinsische Widersprüchlichkeit.

 

Die relativistische Behauptung Alles ist relativ! beinhaltet folgendes Paradox:

  1. Wird sie als relative Aussage verstanden, so schließt sie Absolutheit nicht aus und widerspricht sich damit selbst.
  2. Wird sie hingegen als absolute Aussage verstanden, liefert sie als solche das sie widerlegende Beispiel einer absoluten Behauptung und den Nachweis, dass eben nicht alle wahrheitshaltigen Aussagen relativ sind.

 

Im Gegensatz zum erkenntnistheoretischen Relativismus ist moralischer (ethischer) Relativismus jedoch rein logisch nicht zu widerlegen. Er beschränkt seine Wahrheitswertskepsis nämlich nur auf den ethischen Bereich. So kann er nämlich behaupten, es sei epistemisch wahr, dass es keine universell geltenden ethischen Normen gibt.

 

Dem moralischen Relativismus, welcher die Wahrheit des Absoluten und spirituelle Prinzipien verneint, schreibt Dr. Hawkins den einsetzenden Niedergang der westlichen Gesellschaft und der Welt im Allgemeinen zu. Er erklärte, dass das antike Rom nicht durch äußere Machthaber besiegt wurde, sondern infolge der Dekadenz im Inneren untergegangen ist.

Recht auf freie Meinungsäußerung

Hawkins, der sich gelegentlich in frappierender Weise ausdrückt, meint:

Wir benötigen nicht das Recht AUF die freie Meinungsäußerung, sondern die Befreiung VON der Berechtigung, die eigene Meinung ungehindert äußern zu können.

Dies sagt er angesichts der Tatsache, dass das kostbar erkämpfte und vornehme Recht auf freie Meinungsäußerung in westlichen Gesellschaften jüngst für allerhand Missbrauch gebeugt wurde.
Mittlerweile ist die Praxis der Rechtsbeugung in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika so weit fortgeschritten, dass zerstörerische Handlungen im Rahmen des "Grundrechts auf freie Meinungsäußerung" gerechtfertigt werden.

 

Beispiele:

  • die Vereinigung KuKluxKlan (KKK) verbrennt Kreuze und anerkennt dies nicht als Vandalismus, sondern als Ausdruck von freier Meinungsäußerung.
  • 90 Prozent der frei geäußerten Blog-Inhalte im Internet sind dekadent. Sie sind geistige Umweltverschmutzung.

 

Im Seminar Relativism vs. Reality in Sedona erklärte Hawkins am 14. April 2007, dass die Irrtümer der postmodernen Gesellschaft den geistigen Weg erschwert haben. Wir sind heute Zeugen davon, dass Wahrnehmung zur alltäglichen Wahrheit geworden ist, die im Widerspruch zur absoluten Wahrheit steht. Dieser Umstand hat dazu geführt, dass das Bewusstseinsniveau der westlichen Zivilisation in Richtung Unredlichkeit abfällt. 1

 

Die westlichen Gesellschaften brechen bewusstseinsmäßig deshalb ein, weil in den Medien, der Politik, im Geschäftsleben und im Bildungswesen wiederholt irrtumliches Denken, Reden und Handeln Verbreitung findet, das sich auf die Dominationsmacht der niederen Bewusstseinsebenen unter BW 200 beruft, von ihr begrenzte Energie bezieht und den Zwecken des niederen Ego-Minds dient, was sich teils in bösartigen Amokläufen ins Gemeinwesen ergießt.

 

Relativismus ist die Wahrheit nach projizierter Wahrnehmung und Maßgabe von Einzelnen, die keinen Maßstab bestehender Absolutheit zugrunde legen. Wahrheit ist erst gegeben, wenn sie ausgedrückt wird von Menschen, die einen redlichen Bewusstseinsgrad aufweisen. Diese Voraussetzung wird weltweit nur von etwa einem Fünftel der Bevölkerung erfüllt. Das Wahrheitsverständnis von beispielsweise Zynikern, Skeptikern, Atheisten, Attackenreitern, New-Agern, Politisch Korrekten und Pazifisten ist irrelevant, da es im Rahmen des Zwangs, der Negativität, der Unwahrheit und Lieblosigkeit zum Ausdruck gebracht wird.

 

Wenn die Dinge aus dem Ruder laufen, tendiert die Welt womöglich zu Protestmärschen, während der schmale Weg zur Wirkmacht des Göttlichen bis hin zur Erleuchtung Zwang unterlässt und sich nicht per se in äußerem Aktivismus engagiert, es sei denn nach innerem Auftrag bezogen auf das Göttliche.
Durch Beispiel essenziell zu lehren und wirkmächtig zu beeinflussen, ist nur dem Redlichen möglich. Das eigene Potential dessen, was man ist, zu vervollkommnen, heißt, die Gottheit zu ehren, was das größte Geschenk an die Welt ist.

 

Hinweis: ► Laut Hawkins' Bewusstseinswertmessung ist das Recht auf freie Meinungsäußerung in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika in den letzten fünfzig Jahren den Bereich der Negativität gefallen.

Culture war and decline of an adolescent nation

  • In the current 'cultural war', politicized sociology, sophistry, and rhetoric have now significantly replaced reason and verifiable truth. Even history, language, mathematics, and science, as well as the ethics of responsibility, have been attacked and repudiated. While these relativistic positions could be excused or overlooked as adolescent, naive, and regressive, another element of this decline emerges that reveals the motivations behind the regression, that of "justified hatred". Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 256, 2005

 

 

 

 

  • Using moral relativism as their weapon, liberal secularists can destroy any absolute law they desire. Even the laws that govern society can be destroyed. Most people recognize that American law, ideology, and morals are essentially governed by Judeo-Christian belief in the Ten Commandments. Since there is no God, according to secularists, then all we have are ten Suggestions; there is no law. With no absolute laws, defining right and wrong is a strictly personal matter.
    This is why Ward Churchill, Harris Mirkin, and other secularist faculty members can espouse such ideologies as anti-Americanism and pedophilia. If a person doesn't believe in absolute law, then he or she is not required to believe that pedophilia is wrong. Moral relativism destroys the law that defines right and wrong, moral and immoral.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less."

 

  • Historically, the great empires […] crumble from within by moral decay. Actually, the First Ammendment prohibits only the government from censoring speech. In the social arena, adherence to truth is an no longer a requirement, thereby giving greater voice to the expressions of illogical premises that have exploitive media value rather thatn intrinsic worth.

  • The impact of relativism on Western civilization is the exact opposite to that which ensued from the era of enlightenment that superseded the Dark Ages and replaced ignorance with reason, logic, and rationality and an education based on truth, morality, and integrity. Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 113, 2009

 

  • Relativism denies the reality of the Absolute as it believes that all supposed truth is only social, linguistically constructed opinion (perception / definition / 'just rhetoric'). Therefore, relativism sees only perception and is blind to essence as well as context. Paradoxically, relativism considers its own premises to be absolute (as well as superior and elite). If all statements are hypothetically only semantic constructs then obviously that very statement itself has no inherent reality and is also just a value-laden linguistic construct. Thus, by it's own criteria, relativism is fallacious. Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 136, 2009

Passion inspected

  • If passion itself is valued (and even promoted) for its own sake, then why is that so, especially in view of the gross disasters of mankind that were consequent to inflamed passion (e.g., Nazi era, Ku Klux Klan, and terrorists)? 'Passion' is exhibited by the animal world in its struggles for existence and survival. Thus, it has a pragmatic value in select circumstances but becomes a negative if not dominated by intelligence. 'Passion' often merely signifies unbridled narcissistic emotionality and is thus quantitative rather than qualitative. […]
    "Be passionate only for God." Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 148, 2009

 

 

  • A study of Western civilization indicates that its current overall level of consciousness is currently in decline for the reasons that have been succinctly stated by Pope Benedict (relativism plus Islamic aggression and 'cultural Jihad'; see Burton and Stewart, 2007). The decline is the result of social and intellectual influences via the media, academia and politicalization from lower consciousness levels which have been heavily financed from sources that calibrate below the critical consciousness level of 200 ('power brokers'). The net result is the progressive dominance of narcissism, which is aggrandized as 'progressive', 'free speech', or human 'rights' and appeals to egocentricity. Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 162, 2009

Countermeasures to the decline of cultures due to moral relativism:

 

  • A Washington court has ruled that there is no longer any basis for slander [LoC 135] in that any statement ('free speech') need not be supported by confirmable, material facts. Therefore, overt lies and verifiable truths have equal standing. (This ruling calibrates at 170.) Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, chapter 17, S. 315-316, 2008

 

  • While faith has routinely been subjected to attack over historical periods, now even reason itself has become basically impaired so as to actually hinder the capacity of the human mind for reality testing. The reversal of truth and falsehood and of good and evil is brazenly stated by world political leaders as well as prevailing academics (e.g., ethical and moral relativism, and postmodern deconstructionism). Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 316, 2009

 

 

  • We don't need freedom OF speech, we need freedom FROM speech. Sedona Seminar Serenity, 3 DVD set, 20. August 2005

 

  • The comedy of today's media is 'Fair and balanced'. Mankind is going to go down with free speech and 'Fair and balanced'. Why is that? Because what it is saying is that falsehood has equal validity as truth. The equation of truth and falsehood. That interpretation is called relativism or moral equivalency.

Context:

Hawkins has concern of the programming by the modern media: The iteration, constant repetition, of twisted messages, will have a profound effect on the population. It chips away their capacity for reason, to discern illusion from reality.

  • What is the repair of all that [negative programming by modern media and moral relativism]?
    [...] The way to offset it is not to make an enemy out of it and attack it. That is being seduced to fall into the trap. The way is by each one us by being as loving as we can, as helpful, as truthful, as integrous, as we can within our own domain. Each one of us adds to the level of the sea. And as the sea rises it lifts all the ships on the sea. The way to help with this situation is not by attacking falsehood but instead by becoming the fullest expression and fulfillment of your own spirtual potentiality. Now a group like this, curiously enough, can be the tail that wags the dog. Sedona Seminar Relativism vs. Reality, 3 DVD set, Audio sample MP3, 14. April 2007

Context:

Moral relativism, the propagation of haltruths (falsehood) is eroding western democracies.

  • Socrates said: "Eventually Democracy will fail." Democracy will fail because you give equal power to fallacy as you do to truth. […] This is what I think is the downside of Western society is that you have given equal power to falsehood. The power that should go to truth, believability and credence etc. you have now given to falsehood. […] [T]he slogan is 'Fair and balanced', […] Fair and balanced […] is that I should be able to just do and say anything I want. That's called libertarianism and anarchy. Anarchy then is what's taken over the communication system. […]
    I don't think that the government can actually allow freedom of the press to continue in the present vein. Why? Because the internet has now become the backbone of international economy. […] So if you allow that what is false to take over and dominate the internet then you are going to destroy one of the most important components to modern commerce and trade and economic survival which is being run by the internet. [...] They can just say anything they want. You can make up any figures you want. […] We don't allow that freedom of choice to be in certain areas of our life but we allow it in areas that are more important. And that is our spiritual convictions and alignment.

Papst zur Krise des Relativismus

Papst Benedikt XVI. [BW 570] hat in seiner öffentlichen Ansprache vor Kardinälen und führenden Entscheidungsträgern im Erziehungswesen der Katholischen Kirche über eine Welt gesprochen, die in eine Diktatur des Relativismus reinschlittert. Es war am 6. Juni 2005, anderthalb Monate nach Zusammenkunft der Konklave, in der er zum Papst gewählt wurde.

  • Today, a particularly insidious obstacle to the task of education is the massive presence in our society and culture of that relativism which, recognizing nothing as definitive, leaves as the ultimate criterion only the self with its desires.

  • Everything I have said and done is these last years is relativism, by intuition. From the fact that all ideologies are of equal value, that all ideologies are mere fictions, the modern relativist infers that everybody has the right to create for himself his own ideology, and to attempt to enforce it with all the energy of which he is capable. If relativism signifies contempt for fixed categories, and men who claim to be the bearers of an objective immortal truth, then there is nothing more relativistic than fascism.

Note:

Jean-Paul Sartre took this thesis as the basis of existentialism.

 

  • A general dissolution of Principles and Manners will more surely overthrow the Liberties of America than the whole Force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader. [...] If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security. Samuel Adams (1722-1803) US American statesman, political philosopher, Founding Father of the United States, architect of the principles of American republicanism, cited in Samuel Adams Papers, Lenox Library, Lenox, MA; excerpted from a letter to James Warren, 12. February 1779

 

  • By assigning value and spiritual ideals to private subjectivity, the materialistic world view [...] threatens to undermine any secure objective foundation for morality. The result is the widespread moral degeneration that we witness today. To counter this tendency, mere moral exhortation is insufficient. If morality is to function as an efficient guide to conduct, it cannot be propounded as a self-justifying scheme but must be embedded in a more comprehensive spiritual system which grounds morality in a transpersonal order. Religion must affirm, in the clearest terms, that morality and ethical values are not mere decorative frills of personal opinion, not subjective superstructure, but intrinsic laws of the cosmos built into the heart of reality. Bhikkhu Bodhi (*1944) US American Theravada Buddhist monk, ordained in Sri Lanka, second president of the Buddhist Publication Society

 

  • Moral relativism usually includes three claims:
1. That morality is first of all changeable;
2. secondly, subjective;
3. and thirdlly, individual.
1. That it is relative first to changing times; you can't turn back the clock.
2. Secondly, to what we subjectively think or feel; there is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
3. And thirdly, to individuals; different strokes for different folks.
Moral absolutism claims that there are moral principles that are unchangeable, objective, and universal.

  • I think the addict is closer to the deepest truth than the mere moralist. He is looking for the very best thing in some of the very worst places. His demand for a state in which he transcends morality is very wrong, but it's also very right. For we are designed for something beyond morality, something in which morality will be transformed. Mystical union with God. Sex is a sign and appetizer of that. Moral absolutists must never forget that morality, though absolute, is not ultimate. It is not our Summum Bonum. Sinai is not the Promised Land; Jerusalem is. And in the New Jerusalem, what finally happens as the last chapter of human history is a wedding between the Lamb and His bride. Deprived of this Jerusalem, we must buy into Babylon. If we do not worship God, we will worship idols, for we are by nature worshippers.

  • Observe also that moral neutrality necessitates a progressive sympathy for vice and a progressive antagonism to virtue. A man who struggles not to acknowledge that evil is evil, finds it interestingly dangerous to acknowledge that the good is the good. To him, a person of virtue is a threat that can topple all of his evasions – particularly when an issue of justice is involved, which demands that he take sides. It is then that such formulas as "Nobody is ever fully right or fully wrong" and "Who am I to judge?" take their lethal effect. The man who begins by saying: "There is some good in the worst of us," goes on to say: "There is some bad in the best of us" – then: "There's got to be some bad in the best of us" – and then: "It's the best of us who make life difficult – why don’t they keep silent?—who are they to judge?"

Features of moral relativism

In einem seiner Seminare in Sedona hat Hawkins Kopien dieses Artikels zum Thema moralischer Relativismus verteilen lassen:

 

Moral Relativism
Moral Relativism is the belief that

  • Defining right and wrong is an individual and personal choice.
  • Denying the presence of absolute law this ideology teaches that every decision is a matter of personal feeling.

 

Moral Relativism means that

  • Adultery, for example, is not objectively wrong.

While I may believe that adultery is wrong and it destroys marriages, you are entitled to believe it is right and strengthens a marriage.

  • The same reasoning applies for murder, stealing, pedophilia and every other facet of human life.

With this ideology, there is no absolute definition of right and wrong – only what you perceive to be right and wrong.

 

This distorted principle has made great inroads into our universities. Created by secularists, moral relativism is a by-product of the evolutionist theory, which itself permeates university culture, especially the sciences.

  • By denying the existence of God, the theory of evolution sowed the seeds of moral relativism.
  • If there is no God, secularists reason, then there is no absolute law.

 

  • Using moral relativism as their weapon, liberal secularists can destroy any absolute law they desire.
  • Even the laws that govern society can be destroyed.

Most people recognize that American law, ideology and morals are essentially governed by Judeo-Christian belief in the Ten Commandments.

  • Since there is no God, according to secularists, then all we have are ten Suggestions; there is no law.
  • With no absolute laws, defining right and wrong is a strictly personal matter.

 

This is why Ward Churchill, Harris Mirkin and other secularist faculty members can espouse such ideologies as anti-Americanism and pedophilia.

  • If a person doesn't believe in absolute law, then he or she is not required to believe that pedophilia is wrong.
  • Moral relativism destroys the law that defines right and wrong, moral and immoral.

 

These are a few examples of immorality and moral relativism that pervade our universities. That idea that it is the individual's responsibility to decide right and wrong is firmly entrenched in the minds of today’s university students.
