In NAIVE SET THEORY {x  x ~e x} *parses* as a Set.
NST
ALL(SET) EXIST(p):[TF] ALL(x) x e SET <> p(x)

Any DEFINABLE (p) COLLECTION is a SET.
Since p <> x ~e x
is DEFINABLE ... Russell's Set is a Definable Set

x e SET <> x ~e x
SET e SET <> SET ~e SET
CONTRADICTION

EXCONTRADICTIONE SEQUITUR QUODLIBET

Here is how a CONTRADICTORY SYSTEM (inconsistent) Proves *anything*.
from MODUS PONENS formula you can derive EXCONTRADICTIONESEQUITURQUODLIBET
Some people like C. Boo think if you're using Natural Deduction anyway then there need not be this Huge Platonic Web of RULES of Set Theory to abide by... just use Naive Set Theory anyway.
So it is really true that from a contradiction you can prove anything?
Only if you keep MODUS PONENS!
LHS>RHS ^ LHS > RHS 
Nve. Set THEORY  RSeRS, ~RSeRS
Now with
THEORY  FALSE INDUCTION RULE : LHS>RHS INDUCTION CHECK IF IT APPLI:ES : LHS? (MP) LHS > RHS NOT(LHS) or RHS
This version of IMPLIES means: if the LHS applies (is true) then the RHS must apply
i.e. if the LHS is false, the induction rule doesn't MATCH any fact (with the bindings in use)
so it has no effect on the RHS.
So.... back to my previous derivation from MP. LHS>RHS ^ LHS > RHS (!LHS or RHS) ^ LHS > RHS
(!LHS ^ LHS) v (RHS^LHS) > RHS
*** ~L ^ L > RHS ***
where L is any theorem as we are backward chaining to derive RHS
So if the theory is inconsistent... there is 'likely' a inference rule LHS>RHS
where LHS MATCHES the predicate pattern of RSeRS.
So
*MATCH* *MATCH* (~RSeRS) & (RSeRS) > RHS i.e. a contradictory system proves anything!

Do not confuse
NATURAL LOGIC with DEDUCTIVE LOGIC
Everyone here uses NATURAL LOGIC for their own calculations in NAIVE SET THEORY but you call it FIRST ORDER LOGIC as if it gives you some license to make any deductions without axioms.
The "Standard Model", "In First Order LOGIC" this is just Natural Logic in Naive Set Theory
*a Kangaroo just hopped past at my Weekender!*
NATURAL LOGIC:
LEGEND: thm(..X..) X is a Theorem L>R is a Inference Rule
(LHS>RHS) ^ (LHS is true in some model) ^ (LHS is not false in any model) > RHS
It's very slow to check for errors with every deduction, which is how humans work with Natural Deductive logic!
SHORT ANSWER: MODUS PONENS
(LHS>RHS) ^ LHS >RHS
an *AUTOMATIC* Logic is incompatible with Naive Set Theory.
