That Crazy Frenchman

The crazy Frenchman died long before IQ tests were concocted, but had they been available in the early 1800’s his score might have been one of the highest of all time. However, even high IQ nerds can have mental breakdowns, and also minds full of nutty and destructive ideas. The Frenchman’s nutty idea was to control the future of the whole world and all people–not just in his own lifetime, but forever. He expected to be in control long after he was dead because once his system was accepted, he claimed, it could never be destroyed.
The best thing to do about the crazy Frenchman and his loony ambitions would have been to ignore them. However, in his lifetime and since his death in 1857 there have been opportunists of all description who liked the idea of designing the future—especially since the crazy Frenchman wrote thousands of pages to explain every step needed to accomplish the goal. He did the heavy philosophical thinking and planning. All that the followers and lesser lights had to do was read the books and stick to the plan.
I told you the Frenchman was crazy, but he certainly was not stupid. He did know how get to people’s emotions and control their thoughts and actions. First, he devised what he called the ruler science, social science. Then he invented his own religion, the Religion of Humanity, to destroy all other religions. That’s it! That was the whole plan! The rest of his writing is “how-to” explanation. It is very boring and difficult reading, but fascinating to self-appointed world savers, managers and religion inventors. Even though you might not share the fascination, I do hope you will try to understand where his nutty ideas are leading.
In order to understand the seriousness of his intentions, and the success his followers have had in bringing about the goals he visualized, let the crazy Frenchman tell you how his brainstorms are changing life for you and your fellow Americans:
The object of our philosophy is to direct the spiritual reorganization of the civilized world.
We have founded the new Science of Sociology, and as a deduction from Sociology, the Universal Religion.Sociology is once for all substituted for Theology as the basis for the religious government of mankind.
With the help of hundreds of millions of dollars from private fortunes, foundations, and public financing, sociology has found a huge place in education. Colleges and universities have dozens of courses in what are called social sciences. Much of the curriculum in public schools originates with the National Council for the Social Studies. The Religion of Sociology is most certainly the dominant religion in public education.
