Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 1.4G3

[A thinkgroup may seek sovereign power in order to “establish the object that brings all subjects into an organization”.  (Or an alliance of thinkgroups may seek power to establish objects.)

When an infrasovereign institution grasps sovereign power, the thinkgroup re-iterates the previously described parallel structure, but on the basis of a particular organizational relation – which I will call an “organizational object” – that establishes the difference between the grasping thinkgroup and others.

Thinkgroup becomes thinkpro-object.

Furthermore, thinkpro-object substitutes for thinkdivine.

The exclusion of the nested form of thinkdivine and the substitution of thinkgroup/pro-object (in thinkdivine‘s place) leaves the parallel nested form (formerly occupied by thinkgroup) empty.  Into that emptiness, sovereign power projects a nested form onto whoever does not go along with the party line.

The resulting parallel forms are thinkpro-object(virtue=object relation(consciencepro-object)) versus the projection of thinkanti-object(sin=violations of object relation(conscienceanti-object)).

The difference between the character-building thinkdivine and the organization-justifying thinkgroup is significant.
