This aphoristic philosophy project carries on the task begun earlier (see ‘Eschatology or Scatology’) of highlighting the distinctions between Social Theocracy and Social Democracy, though always from a perspective favouring the former, and brings a fresh sense of exactitude to bear on a number of terms which have either been used interchangeably or in a more general way by the author in the past, while simultaneously developing a comprehensively exacting ‘take’ on what appertains to free psyche and bound soma on the one hand, and what, by contrast, appertains to free soma and bound psyche on the other, so that one need be in no doubt that criteria applicable to the former are largely, if not completely, irrelevant to the latter. Which is why John O’Loughlin has developed a different set of terminological markers for each context, whether in respect of noumenal or phenomenal, upper- or lower-class, criteria, so there can be no ambiguity or ambivalence as to the sense in which these terms are being applied, and no justification, in consequence, for confusion over their use. But the ‘new revelation’ alluded to in the title has to do with more than specific terminological practice, no matter how comprehensively exacting, since it is a revelation, above all, about life and the means by which life can be enhanced in respect of the more than Christian order of salvation (superchristian?) which is what Social Theocracy is really all about.
