The dialectic-geist was brilliant in church the last time I went (it is 600 miles from where I write). I had not been there or seen them for a long time, and added to that the exhaustion of the work has made me a little manic. The context, Occupy, forced some new thinking on their part; that the rank and file were being set up by leadership pretending to be pacifist, but with clear terroristic rationalizations in previous writing--if not terror itself. No blanket judgements, which is what Christianity is about: acceptance and support.
Geist and Dialectic themselves also forced some new thinking for them, and I felt uneasy as I was forcing liberalism on them (country folk), and then forced them to see a secular definition of Christ: Geist. Also, the Dialectic is well-entrenched into both Catholic and Protestant thinking, existing as an philosophically athiest parallel--something they perfer not think about. They rather see themselves as seperate from the "fray" of common reality, but, they being spiritual, are the common reality. 40% of people go to worship regularaly and 80% make it for important events.
With Geist, there is a secular mirror of themselves that they can pray for and act upon, even militantly, in the scope of society's realities. With the Dialectic, the very thing that they hate but humor themselves about can be ground down, because there is on Dialect in Scripture, as Scriputure forbids the antagonistic anger that the Dialectic uses to disarm the abstract, which is Geist-speak for spiritual thinking.
The Dialectic is so entrenched in religion and education (a favored job for the spiritual) as the didactic (a more efficent form for the lower masses) that they must have felt new thinking emerging especially in the context of the innocent of occupy being manipulated by people clearly identifying themselves as Dialecticals -- or Daleks!
I may have to back off the thoughts next time I attend, I feel I may have done too much good, something always possible with the elderly who don't really need so much in terms of deeds, more in terms of thoughts and good feelings. But, it is never too late for the Christian soldier to find a new weapon against the violent zealot.
