    Few exceprts of Hegel's seminal 'historical birth of democracy, socialism, and communism'-work 'The Philosophy of Right' which I got from a deacon whilst residing in the brutal ancient suburbs of The District of Columbia:

    I'd like to preface this short commentary on the due course of individualism (as defined properly) within an increasingly collectivist society by saying that I've read all 4 or 5 hundred pages of Hegel's 'Phenomenology', a work of purely passionate Protestant philosophy generally defined as highly 'collectivist' in ideology.

    It's a great read, let me tell you.


    'short commentary'


    "Hegel Rocks the Politalk"



    exceprts: 3, in the traditional Hegel style.


    111. Paragraph 174.
    Man has to acquire for himself the position which he aught to attain; he is not already in possession of it by instinct. It is on this fact that the child's right to education is based.


    109. Paragraph 168.

    A sense of shame-to go no farther-is a bar to consanguineous marraige. But this repugnance finds justification in the concept of the thing. What is already united, I mean, cannot be united for the first time by marraige. It is commonplace of stock-breeding that the offspring is comparatively weak when animals of the same stock are mated, since if there is to be unification there must first be division.

    145. Paragraph 236. "additions"

    The oversight and care excerised by the public authority aims at being a middle term between an individual and the universal posibility, afforded by society, of attaining individual ends. It has to undertake street-lighting, bridge building, the pricing of daily necessaries, and the #GET THIS vie OBAMACARE 'LIKE "WOAH"'~ care of public health.

    *continues*
    In this connexion, two main views predominate at the present time. One asserts that the superintendence of everything properly belongs to the public authority.
