LOST FOUNDATIONS
by Bertrand L. Comparet

"Most church goers will say they believe the #Bible, but the question is what #Bible?
"If pinned down to specific answers, they will discount the #OldTestament about 90%. They are skeptical of its history & they give no credence to its #miracles. They know only utter confusion as to its #prophecies and they reject its laws as being repudiated by the #NewTestament.
"For their beauty of language, they will accept the #Psalms, those which are not controversial. Any verse is accepted which could not offend even the most #wicked, but they reject all the others which sternly call the #Christian to the duties he wants to evade.

#KarlMarx200 thread:

1. In my own #research, I have found Marx's notion of #contradiction particularly useful.

2. The contradiction does not necessarily mean #conflict, but tendencies that "pull" in different directions and are in a dialectical relation to each other.

The contradiction of labor/capital can be accommodated in different ways and with very different consequences.
3. I like how this notions focuses on changing social dynamics. In my own work on #land use of #Mengen speakers in #PapuaNewGuinea, I've used the notion of #contradiction, to think about social forces underpinning Mengen land ownership and use.
