All too often we find Marxist Communist doctrine being presented as if it were some basic theme of human socialized business organization and behavior that humanity would be better served if we were to define it as a Natural Law, and thereby deify Marx and Engles, as well as all their assiduous followers who came to claim themselves having bested the teachings of their master by creating their own orientations. Indeed, let us take a moment to reflect on different variants of Communism by perusing a List of communist ideologies, which should rightly also reflect the imposed styles of different Communist rulers whose personal psychologies often resort to the usage of violence as a control measure, just as do other systems of government, albeit in ways presented as necessities, as protections, as collateral damage; though the circumstances for using such force are often contrived and instigated by underlying imperialisms that so-called democracies are guilty of. And with this said, let us further note that the usage of violence is itself a tool that is all too often wielded by those who have no qualms in using whatever measures and methods of application best serves the desire at a given moment. Communism is not inherently evil just as Capitalism isn't either. But those who have come to rely specifically on these ideologies as their main tool of choice without enlarging their tool box or training in the usage of other tools, invariably use the tools they are most comfortable with even when those tools are incompatible with the task at hand. Neither Marxist Communism, nor any present day version of Socialism, Democracy, religious belief, etc., are the appropriate tools for the task of creating a better human civilization. All of them are makeshift tools created out of discarded bones, stones, or single-function drones (as in honey bee drones, monotonous intonation, or pilotless craft); akin to the psychology notion of functional fixedness.

  • Religious communism (labeled Socialism) with each often labeled as a pseudo-religion, though religions very often proscribe a non-materialist " Heavenly services" preoccupation as opposed to a Marxist materialism such as concerning the production of Worldly goods. However, more to the point is the fact that in terms of a Communist-styled social ideology, we typically find individual religious practitioners holding an interest and not necessarily the main body of a religious faith:
    • Christian-specific communism ("communalism/commonism")
      • Adventists-specific communalism
      • Amish-specific communalism
      • Baptist-specific communalism
      • Calvinism-specific communalism
      • Catholic-specific communalism
      • Congregationalists-specific communalism
      • Hutterite-specific communalism
      • Jehovah Witness-specific communalism

      Watchman Index of Cults and Religions "Watchman" closely resembles the "watchtower" insignia publication of the Jehovah Witness community, though it asserts a distinction of not being associated with it.

      • Lutheran-specific communalism
      • Methodist-specific communalism
      • Pentecostal-specific communalism
      • Presbyterian-specific communalism
      • Mormon-specific communalism (Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints)
      • etc.............
    • Judaic-specific communism
    • Islamic-specific communism
    • Hindu-specific communism
    • Buddhist-specific communism
    • Shintoist-specific communism
    • Bahaist-specific communism
    • etc.........
  • Anarcho communism:

Anarcho-communism, also referred to as anarchist communism, communist anarchism, free communism, libertarian communism and stateless communism, is a political philosophy and anarchist school of thought which advocates the abolition of the state, capitalism, wage labour and private property (while retaining respect for personal property, along with collectively-owned items, goods and services) in favor of common ownership of the means of production, direct democracy, and a horizontal network of workers' councils with production and consumption based on the guiding principle "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs". Some forms of anarcho-communism such as insurrectionary anarchism are strongly influenced by egoism and radical individualism, believing anarcho-communism to be the best social system for the realization of individual freedom. Most anarcho-communists view anarcho-communism as a way of reconciling the opposition between the individual and society.

  • Military communism (and socialism):

Communist and Socialist practices in the military

With the above list of military-focused Communist/Socialist practices, one must ask why a society advocating the practice of a Democracy needs to be protected by a Communist/Socialist regime, and also why such a regime of working class individuals allows itself to be employed as a servant for an upper class. Surely this is anti-Marxism and begs the question of what Marxist doctrine is overlooking as a variable in the formulaic equation of Communism, thus providing a tell-tale sign that the Marxist/Engles ideology is not only an inaccurate assessment of social functionality, but that it is an irrationality born of an adolescent world-view that one can easily described as a primivity. It is a world-view adopted by those who share in a similar level and type of intellectually immature world-view.

Those advocating a Marxist doctrine exemplify the aforementioned comment called "functional fixedness" (though this is true for all socio-political theories and can be found in religion, science, education, military strategy, etc...). It is problematic and represents what can be described as an obstacle to effective thinking:

Obstacles to effective thinking

A better understanding of the processes of thought and problem solving can be gained by identifying factors that tend to prevent effective thinking. Some of the more common obstacles, or blocks, are:

  • Mental set:

A mental set, or "entrenchment," is a frame of mind involving a model that represents a problem, a problem context, or a procedure for problem solving. When problem solvers have an entrenched mental set, they fixate on a strategy that normally works well but does not provide an effective solution to the particular problem at hand. A person can become so used to doing things in a certain way that, when the approach stops working, it is difficult for him to switch to a more effective way of doing things.

  • Functional fixedness:

Functional fixedness is the inability to realize that something known to have a particular use may also be used to perform other functions. When one is faced with a new problem, functional fixedness blocks one's ability to use old tools in novel ways. Overcoming functional fixedness first allowed people to use reshaped coat hangers to get into locked cars, and it is what first allowed thieves to pick simple spring door locks with credit cards.

  • Stereotypes

Another block involves stereotypes. The most common kinds of stereotypes are rationally unsupported generalizations about the putative characteristics of all, or nearly all, members of a given social group. Most people learn many stereotypes during childhood. Once they become accustomed to stereotypical thinking, they may not be able to see individuals or situations for what they are.

  • Negative transfer:

Negative transfer occurs when the process of solving an earlier problem makes later problems harder to solve. It is contrasted with positive transfer, which occurs when solving an earlier problem makes it easier to solve a later problem. Learning a foreign language, for example, can either hinder or help the subsequent learning of another language.

Expert thinking and novice thinking

Research by the American psychologists Herbert A. Simon, Robert Glaser, and Micheline Chi, among others, has shown that experts and novices think and solve problems in somewhat different ways. These differences explain why experts are more effective than novices in a variety of problem-solving endeavors.

As compared with novices, experts tend to have larger and richer schemata (organized representations of things or events that guide a person's thoughts and actions), and they possess far greater knowledge in specific domains. The schemata of experts are also highly interconnected, meaning that retrieving one piece of information easily leads to the retrieval of another piece. Experts devote proportionately more time to determining how to represent a problem, but they spend proportionately less time in executing solutions. In other words, experts tend to allocate more of their time to the early or preparatory stages of problem solving, whereas novices tend to spend relatively more of their time in the later stages. The thought processes of experts also reveal more complex and sophisticated representations of problems. In terms of heuristics, experts are more likely to use a working-forward strategy, whereas novices are more likely to use a working-backward strategy. In addition, experts tend to monitor their problem solving more carefully than do novices, and they are also more successful in reaching appropriate solutions.

Along the same lines of convention being used as a substitute for an actual engagement in thinking can be found in Frances Bacon's "Idols of the Mind":

The idols of the mind

In the first book of Novum Organum Bacon discusses the causes of human error in the pursuit of knowledge. Aristotle had discussed logical fallacies, commonly found in human reasoning, but Bacon was original in looking behind the forms of reasoning to underlying psychological causes. He invented the metaphor of "idol" to refer to such causes of human error.

Bacon distinguishes four idols, or main varieties of proneness to error: (Or they can be viewed as a 3-to-1 ratio in that the "Tribe" refers to a group while the other 3 generally refer to a place. Unless tribe is meant to suggest a place and the other three are meant to suggest particular groups of people.)

  • The idols of the Tribe are certain intellectual faults that are universal to mankind, or, at any rate, very common. One, for example, is a tendency toward over-simplification, that is, toward supposing, for the sake of tidiness, that there exists more order in a field of inquiry than there actually is. Another is a propensity to be overly influenced by particularly sudden or exciting occurrences that are in fact unrepresentative.
  • The idols of the Cave are the intellectual peculiarities of individuals. One person may concentrate on the likenesses, another on the differences, between things. One may fasten on detail, another on the totality.
  • The idols of the Marketplace are the kinds of error for which language is responsible. It has always been a distinguishing feature of English philosophy to emphasize the unreliable nature of language, which is seen, nominalistically, as a human improvisation. Nominalists argue that even if the power of speech is given by God, it was Adam who named the beasts and thereby gave that power its concrete realization. But language, like other human achievements, partakes of human imperfections. Bacon was particularly concerned with the superficiality of distinctions drawn in everyday language, by which things fundamentally different are classed together (whales and fishes as fish, for example) and things fundamentally similar are distinguished (ice, water, and steam). But he was also concerned, like later critics of language, with the capacity of words to embroil men in the discussion of the meaningless (as, for example, in discussions of the deity Fortune). This aspect of Bacon's thought has been almost as influential as his account of natural knowledge, inspiring a long tradition of skeptical rationalism, from the Enlightenment to Comtian positivism of the 19th and logical positivism of the 20th centuries.
  • The idols of the Theatre, that is to say mistaken systems of philosophy in the broadest, Baconian sense of the term, in which it embraces all beliefs of any degree of generality. Bacon's critical polemic in discussing the idols of the theatre is lively but not very penetrating philosophically. He speaks, for example, of the vain affectations of the humanists, but they were not a very apt subject for his criticism. Humanists were really anti-philosophers who not unreasonably turned their attention to non-philosophical matters because of the apparent inability of philosophers to arrive at conclusions that were either generally agreed upon or useful. Bacon does have something to say about the skeptical philosophy to which humanists appealed when they felt the need for it. Insofar as skepticism involves doubts about deductive reasoning, he has no quarrel with it. Insofar as it is applied not to reason but to the ability of the senses to supply the reason with reliable premises to work from, he brushes it aside too easily.

Bacon's attack on Scholastic orthodoxy is surprisingly rhetorical. It may be that he supposed it to be already sufficiently discredited by its incurably contentious or disputatious character. In his view it was a largely verbal technique for the indefinite prolongation of inconclusive argument by the drawing of artificial distinctions. He has some awareness of the central weakness of Aristotelian science, namely its attempt to derive substantial conclusions from premises that are intuitively evident, and argues that the apparently obvious axioms are neither clear nor indisputable. Perhaps Bacon's most fruitful disagreement with Scholasticism is his belief that natural knowledge is cumulative, a process of discovery, not of conservation. Living in a time when new worlds were being found on Earth, he was able to free himself from the view that everything men needed to know had already been revealed in the Bible or by Aristotle.

Against the fantastic learning of the occultists Bacon argued that individual reports are insufficient, especially since men are emotionally predisposed to credit the interestingly strange. Observations worthy to substantiate theories must be repeatable. Bacon defended the study of nature against those who considered it as either base or dangerous. He argued for a cooperative and methodical procedure and against individualism and intuition.

"Bacon, Francis, Viscount Saint Alban (or Albans), Baron Verulam." Encyclopædia Britannica Ultimate Reference Suite, 2013

For a brief digression, let me focus on idols of the marketplace which might otherwise be termed the tower of babel in reference to the problems stemming from language. The biblical quote that in the Beginning was the word, and the word was with god, and the word was (a) god, is interpreted (by me) to express the origination of verbal behavior viewed as an ascendancy from what might be described as grunts and other articulation characteristic of early beastial humans roaming the Savannahs or taking up residence in a clan. It is much like when a person learns how to whistle. The ability to do so may be greeted with a great surprise and enthusiasm to the extent the behavior is practiced multiple times with great excitement so much so that one or more others want to be taught how to do the same. Certain whistles then eventually begin to be transformed into a type of language recognized by all those who share in the behavior, with certain whistles attributed to certain individuals by which they come to be recognized. Later on the whistling is adopted to reference an activity such as "I am going hunting, come with me". In any respect, the biblical passage pays reference to the origin of vocal behavior which is greeted as a super-normal phenomena and its articulators as possessing some god-attenuated pronouncibility. We see a variation of this when a speaker (such as Hitler) captivates his listeners or some (such as Churchill) who instills a courage in a population to persevere and not give up when all seems otherwise lost. We also see this when someone is noted for their ability to sing, tell a story, tell a joke or provide a sermon that alters the mood of many. An extension of this is seen when a writer has a unique grasp not only of language but of a visionary experience that others may come to recognize but may themselves be unable to exactly articulate why the person is being perceived as someone who is "different".

Another reference to be culled from the above with respect to the topic of Communism is that Communists (and other ideologues) view their socio-political-economic idea as THE other world to be found, and thus use this as THE argument to profess their otherwise well-intentioned motive to seek the development of a better plan for human civilization. Whereas they see it as the endpoint of all endpoints, I view it as one of several minor hiccups in the attempted rationale of human thinking to conjure that which does not take multiple considerations into the formulaic process. It is a process that is not difficult to conceptualize nor comprehend. Basically, as I have stated and will state again, the Earth is a moving target. You can not fix a point on it just as it is difficult to fix a point on an atomic particle as described by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle dealing with the measurement of velocity and speed at the same time for the very small particles of atomic nuclei. The speed and velocity of a small particle are akin to an unacknowledged concomitant incremental degenerate nature of its existence. This same incremental deterioration is taking place with the Earth, solar system, galaxy and apparently the entire Universe. While we can fix a relative position and speed of a planet's approximation in the future, we must couple this with the incremental deterioration occurring with socio-political-religious ideologies as artefacts of a biological organism whose genetics and physiology must conform, must adapt, must adopt the relative equilibrium consistent with an ongoing incremental deterioration. While the Uncertainty principle accounts for the changes in that being observed, it does not account for changes from the point of observation. Both the observer and that being observed are undergoing a cycle of degeneracy.

Einstein's theory of relativity attempts to deal with both of these by providing information relative to the observer and that being observed, but Heisenberg's principle does not, and neither do socio-political-religious (etc.) theories. For some reason or another time is viewed as static points of demarcation and not dynamic ones, though the concept of an "arrow of time" suggests a fluidity... historical events are nonetheless cast into a framework as if they occurred as static event along a trail, even if the trail itself is portrayed as a moving object on a circuitous course or wavy line (from side to side, up and down, or otherwise). Whereas the idea of "an observer and that being observed" suggests a dichotomy, it may not be... given the fact that alternative conceptualizations are possible when alternative variables are introduced for consideration. Such is the case with the idea of a "wave and particle" conceptualization of an atom. We have designed an experiment to fortify a dichotomous frame of mind orientation and are satisfied with the results, without questioning the reality of such based on the fact that the human brain uses other patterns for conceptualization as well, depending on what criteria are imported into the modeling definition, such as the dialectic which is portrayed in a pattern-of-three formulation but is actually an embellished dichotomy... similar to the introduction of a "third eye" concept to suggest a superior view to the convention of two-eyes, but no actual third eye is ever grown. It is an adopted metaphor which takes on a life of its own and is accepted as a reality.

Communism, like all present day socio-political-religious ideologies are static views that want to appear as being dynamic in the sense of being under the direction of a god or some supposed originating genius; but change according to prevailing conditions not because of a god, but because of an ongoing incremental environmental deterioration that humanity must adapt to by altering its rationales so as to maintain some semblance of equilibrium. All the ideologies are fabricated delusions of providing some ultimately achievable goal if certain steps or values are maintained. Like a marksman whose life span is withering away and thus affecting their ability to hold and focus a weapon on a target whose movements compound the movements of their own growing instability, present socio-political-religious theories are insufficient methods for gaining any long lasting reward. All they provide are cheap, momentary gains like the trinkets and stuffed animals won at a carnival by those who can pop a balloon with a dart, shoot down a duck with a rifle, or dunk someone sitting on a seat over a large tub of water by hitting a circled mark by throwing a baseball. While variations of the toss or throw or pitch abound from one circus, carnival or fair to the next, all of them represent different ideologies to capture the interest of someone who is familiar with a give type of projectile being used, such as a "sales pitch," or "throwing one's voice," or flinging, flicking, projecting, proceeding forward, etc... It could be a basketball, baseball, golf ball, dart, football, soccer ball, coin, billiard ball, card, hat, marble, ring, phrase, song, speech, gesture, gang sign, or otherwise.

Here are some familiar three-part phrases associated with the mentality:

  • Hurry-Hurry-Hurry.
  • Step-right-up.
  • Try-your-luck.
  • Do-or-Dare.
  • Take-a-Chance.
  • Place-your-bets.
  • In-or-Out.
  • What-a-ride.
  • What-a-rush.
  • Win-or-lose.
  • Double-or-Nothing.
  • You're-a-Winner.

If someone has not created a game for you to participate in, you can always create your own, be it a variation of Communism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Socialism, Capitalism, some sport, dance, music, literary genre, philosophy, manufacturing method, creative accounting, vote tampering, military maneuver, banking scheme, ponzi scheme, "National Security," higher consciousness, Utopia, Liberty-Equality-Fraternity, E-Pluribus-Unum, America the Beautiful, Made in China, Made in Mexico, Made in Brazil, Made in Italy, Made in Germany, The Third Estate, The Third Reich, The Three R's of education, Three laws of motion, Three laws of planetary motion, Three laws of Robotics, and continuing with various "threes" perspectives (since all of them represent "collectively individualized" ideologies): [The "collectivity" is the repetitious usage of the "three".]
