Regression is Mean: A responsion to Herbert Marcuse's Repressive Tolerance

First of all we have to acknowledge that Marcuse’s essay on Repressive Tolerance was written in 1965. Anti-war and civil-rights demonstrations, social revolution, and the rise of feminism were the catalysts for societal strife of the day. One man, Herbert Marcuse, emerged from this time as the "Father of the new-left".

The Regression is Mean by Herbert Marcuse is a very important book which has an enormous significance for any person who is looking for some radical ideas and new ideas to develop their own consciousness in a liberating and creative way. What is interesting about this book is that it is the first of its kind and also it is very influential and is being read by many people.

As mentioned, the book is basically about how what is called regressive liberalism or the liberal ideology that has been dominant in Western societies and other societies in the world over the last few years has gone very wrong. It goes on to say that it was never right from the beginning, and has actually made the world very small.

The meaning of this is that liberalism itself is a liberal ideology, which means it is a regressive idea. It means that liberalism means that we should be dominated and not have any rights and also that is a form of slavery. It has also led to the death of a great deal of freedom in Western society and has led to the rise of mass crime and violence and all of which is very wrong.

Herbert goes into all of these things and then comes to the conclusion that it is our duty to change this and change it now. He says that we have to get out of this liberalism and get a different type of liberal and that is what we need to do.

It is interesting to see what he thinks that would be a better way of thinking than this because he sees it as being very limiting indeed. His ideas can certainly be used and implemented and used as the basis for a truly radical and progressive movement.

I really like his view because I think that the liberal world view has had a major influence on the kind of world we live in now. I mean for those people who do not know the difference between a good idea and an ugly one, it really is quite simple.

Ideas which are good are ones that are not based on fear or domination and are ones which are based on a positive vision and positive values and positive beliefs, which is what we should aim to do. and try to implement as much as possible.

I agree with him that if we want to live in a world where all is positive and where all is equal and where we all have the same opportunities then it has to be a good idea. And I believe that it will become a good idea when the people begin to become aware of this fact and do something about it and make it happen and make the real deal.

Think about this for a moment; if we all believe that it is okay to steal then we will steal; that is not my belief, I do not believe in it at all, so therefore, it is not a very good idea. If we think that it is okay to kill people in order to create more space and life then we will kill; that is not my belief, so therefore, it is not a very good idea either. and we must all accept that it is wrong.

And so the question is this; do we live in a world where all is allowed or is it all allowed for a whole life, then why do we not do something? It is not too late for us to take action, because we do have only a few years left to solve this problem. Now, think about this for a minute and what do you think will happen if we take that next step?

If we do it, then we will be able to say "no" to the establishment and we will create an entirely new world and it will be a world where we are in control. It will be a world where our rights, our thoughts and our actions do matter and where it is no longer acceptable to steal, kill, rape or steal in order to gain anything.

I am sure that you will see that if we do this, then we will begin to see a shift in the mind set of this generation, and begin to see that we have a chance to move away from the liberal view, and to move towards the right one, and a new kind of liberalism. I hope that you will please consider this.

I abandoned this responsion in light of watching the 2017 Nobel Prize ceremony. It is apparent that there are much more reliable means of establishing truths than dialectical acrobatics.

I may come back to this but for now it seems appropriate to move on to more more important conversations, or perhaps the best response is no response at all.
