A social construct (or construction) is a belief universally held by a population describing an object or a concept. A set of commonly held social constructs define a distinct people or nation. Social constructs come to be through Essentialism; the the real-world essence of the object or concept.
Social Constructionism is the 'science' of determining and defining how a society's defining social constructs came to be, assuming a priori that social constructs are man-made. Thus, Social Constructionism stands opposed to and at odds with Essentialism.
Social Constructionism can be (and has been) politically weaponized.
Judaism and Christianity, as social constructs, may be described as the main social constructs that define Judaism and Christianity. At question is whether their essence - their reality - came from God, or from man.
Constructionism says from man; Essentialism says from God.
What is at stake in this black-and-white, no-shades-of-gray argument is the universally held human concept of reality and truth, which is to say, sanity versus insanity. And, the ultimate destination of souls, which many if not most modern social constructs hold to not even exist.
It's a very simple argument. An object or a concept is either what it's own very essence says that it is, or it is not.
Many if not most social constructs operative in the world today are the products of politics aimed at achieving the eventual political domination of religions, families, nations, and the world.
The whole Islamo-Commie-Homo political movement is a set of false, politically-induced, educationally-fed, evil social constructs. There is not one thing in any of them that is essentially true. The whole thing is unreal.
In the recent Social Construct article the RCMP described the Canadian government's Covid-19 Vaccination Mandate as, in our words, a politically weaponized man-made social-construct. An attack on citizen liberty based on an 'emergency' false assumption. At the root of it, it is a sinister political weapon, whatever other little things about it may be true or partially true. It is a typical Hegelian crisis of opportunity politically capitalized on for Machiavellian purposes.That's what Marxism (and Islam, and Homo-Nazism) is all about. You show me a Marxist and I'll show you a MEJTML14 .
We have said and repeated many times and many ways in this site that:
With that in mind, and speaking only of responsible adults here, we feel safe in saying that:
These, and many more, are all successful social constructions of man. They feed each other, and feed off of each other. Most of them depend on each other; none of them can stand on their own as essentially true and proven or provable by any of the rules of science and empiricism.
How many of them have crept into your consciousness?
The question before you is, who are you, and who are we? Not who we think we are or who anyone says we are, but who we essentially are.
Get that one question straight and everything else will sort itself out.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
