This destruction of the family is part of the Mystery Schools 'Great Work'. It is one of the aspects of social control that the elite adore. Plato described it in The Republic. The NWO hold The Republic as key work in their philosophy. Along with Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World, Plato's Republic is a must read to understand the NWO system.The Republic By Plato (360 B.C.E)http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/republic.html
...Plato believed that the interests of the state are best preserved if children are raised and educated by the society as a whole
, rather than by their biological parents. So he proposed a simple (if startlingly unfamiliar) scheme for the breeding, nurturing, and training of children in the guardian class. (Note that the same children who are not permitted to watch and listen to "dangerous" art are encouraged to witness first-hand the violence of war
.) The presumed pleasures of family life, Plato held, are among the benefits that the higher classes of a society must be prepared to forego...http://www.philosophypages.com/hy/2h.htmAn Informal Comparison of Plato's Republic and Thomas More's Utopia.
Plato's Republic was a very controversial work in Europe, even though aspects of the work were popular and contemporary, such as the belief that "the growth of luxury and excess corrupts the good society and must lead to wars of aggression and ultimately to degeneration" (Manuel 111). His work also contained serious differences from Aristotle's Politics, which was a mainstay of Humanism (since it was available in totality before Plato). Leonardi Bruni, who newly translated Aristotle's Ethics and Politics in 1414 and 1437, respectively, refused to translate the Republic (Manuel 104). He said that "there are many things in these books that, to our ways, are loathsome" (Manuel 105).One such problem is that of Plato's abolition of the family within the ideal city--"All these women shall be wives in common to all the men, and not one of them shall live privately with any man; the children too should be held in common so that no parent shall know which is his own offspring, and no child shall know his parent"
The prescription of eugenics pales, though, in comparison to the belief in the value of infanticide--"[t]he children of good parents they will take to a rearing pen in the care of nurses living apart in a certain section of the city; the children of inferior parents, or any child of the others born defective, they will hide, as is fitting, in a secret and unknown place" (Plato 121-122). Obviously, then, Plato's Republic, although in many ways a very Humanist work, also stands in opposition to a number of key Christian beliefs and tenets.http://faculty.weber.edu/dkrantz/en4620ren/utopia_platolec.htmlTraining the Guardians
In order to fulfill their proper functions, these people will have to be special human beings indeed. Plato hinted early on that one of their most evident characteristics will be a temperamental inclination toward philosophical thinking. As we've already seen in the Apology and in the Phaedo, it is the philosopher above all others who excels at investigating serious questions about human life and at judging what is true and best. But how are personal qualities of this sort to be fostered and developed in an appropriate number of individual citizens? (Republic 376d)
The answer, Plato believed, was to rely upon the value of a good education. (Remember, he operated his own school at Athens!) We'll have an opportunity to consider his notions about higher education later, but his plan for the elementary education of guardians for the ideal state appears in Book III. Its central concern is an emphasis on achieving the proper balance of many disparate components—physical training and musical performance along with basic intellectual development.One notable feature of this method of raising children is Plato's demand for strict censorship of literary materials, especially poetry and drama. He argued that early absorption in fictional accounts can dull an person's ability to make accurate judgments regarding matters of fact and that excessive participation in dramatic recitations might encourage some people to emulate the worst behavior of the tragic heros. (Republic 395c) Worst of all, excessive attention to fictional contexts may lead to a kind of self-deception, in which individuals are ignorant of the truth about their own natures as human beings. (Republic 382b) Thus, on Plato's view, it is vital for a society to exercise strict control over the content of everything that children read, see, or hear.
As we will later notice, Aristotle had very different ideas. [Brocke's thoughts: you can see how this idea of 'entertainment' dulling a child's judgement is being used today to dumb down the minds of the 'Producer class'.]
Training of the sort described here (and later) is intended only for those children who will eventually become the guardians of the state. Their performance at this level of education properly determines both whether they are qualified to do so and, if so, whether each of them deserves to be a ruler or a soldier. A society should design its educational system as a means to distinguish among future citizens whose functions will differ and to provide training appropriate to the abilities of each.http://www.philosophypages.com/hy/2g.htm
