Part 1: Returning to Eden: How an Ancient Religious myth Inspired a Modern Political Movement

Posted By: oldmaninthedesert

I had this one at my old blog,given what is going on in the country it feels like a good time to try and share it.He comes off as an intellectual and definitely shows some of his bias, particularly where religion is concerned. Seeing that he wrote this a number of years ago,he comes off smelling pretty decent about what he seen coming from the crazies handling the crowds we see in our cities these days.

... This is a book about the utopians, what their visions entail, and how they try to make them real. Since by definition utopia cannot be made real, the utopians are on fools' errands, like schizophrenics obeying the voices in their heads. Nonetheless, the history of their campaigns and programs is not just a sorrowful tale of futility but also one of very serious destruction. Explaining the appeal and various forms of human utopian aspiration is an involved and difficult enterprise, neither started nor finished by the book before you. But perhaps this contribution will be of some practical use to someone.

*

Since the time of Rousseau, utopianism — particularly, of the socialist variety — has been eroding and undermining Western civilization like so many angry ocean waves. Utopian socialism — by which I mean chiefly the idea that human economic and emotional welfare can be divorced from economic and biological reality — has for so long been a part of the political landscape of the West that most people have accepted it as the cultural embodiment of an idea that is fundamental to the world. In fact, it is just so much inherited wishful thinking and confabulated flapdoodle, sewn together from fragments of ancient mythology, chiefly those relating to the Eden of the Hebrew Bible and its antecedents and descendants. While its roots are ancient, a program that recognizably constitutes a form of modern socialism was first assembled by the Sozzinis of sixteenth century Italy, whose ethic became known as “Socinianism” and set the stage for the utopian aspects of the Enlightenment.

This treatise dissects the psychological, cultural, and historical anatomy of the modern utopian movement, presenting it in ten parts: an overview, an investigation of ancient roots, a survey of biblical parallels, some meditations on the Eden motif itself in modern settings, a discussion of the phenomenon of cargo cultism, a survey of population control programs, a treatment of egalitarianism, a treatment of environmentalism, a survey of the main players in the invention and institutionalization of socialism, and a comparative survey of occult Edenism.

My purpose is simple, and I don't pretend impartiality. This book is descriptive, not prescriptive, but by way of description and explanation I seek to guide the liberal-minded toward classical liberalism, and away from the utopianism that infests modern liberalism. This book should perhaps be viewed first as a warning to those who, like myself, envision radical progress in the human condition. In the minds of mere mortal men, the perfect all too easily becomes the enemy of the good.
