What is distressing is you are arguing that we are talking about the same thing. So your greater point would be what exactly?
If that's the case, than why do you keep calling it "Cultural Marxism"
Do you disagree about who was the authentic originator of the strategy or are you simply repudiating it as an idea wholesale?
I don’t know why you are saying that the term scientific socialism was coined in the 1960s. Engels chose it to differentiate his and Marx’s flavor from the utopian varieties.
I think you confuse tribal mentality with pack mentality. I certainly don’t think transgenderism is a traditional cultural value anywhere and that is why these neologisms are perceived as manufactured specifically to intentionally manipulate cultures otherwise hostile to socialism.
You have the whole concept upside down, the goal of the Frankfurt school wasn’t to liberate homosexuals by making them economically equal but, to invoke socialist economic equality by promoting homosexuality (among other verboten practices) in traditional cultures in order to weaken the enemy of the revolution, the culture of the middle class. Socialists had no sympathy or tolerance for homosexuals within the collective.
It was western culture that thwarted the global revolution so, yes, advocates of Fabian socialism primarily target western culture through enacting social policies which diminish inherently incompatible notions within society.
You act like there is no coherent goal to destroy capitalism among socialists. That is patently false, perhaps you misspoke. The only variant of socialism that purports to be a happy medium between capitalism and socialism is syndicalism.
Syndicalism/corporativism certainly has the stronger foothold in labor politics as is evidenced by the popularity of concepts such as 'profit sharing' and slogans like "railroads to the railroad men" and "mines to the miners".
