I am not kidding.... I hope my claim doesn't sound outragious, I can prove it to the mods if need be...

But, my teacher is a Marxist. Out of curiosity, I searched her name on Google.. not knowing that she would come up as a famous book-writer on Marxism.

Now I feel all weird... Maybe even brainwashed. Maybe it would be beneficial to stop debating the other students in defense of state sovereignty in front of her...

Moreso than the ManBirdPig Flu. Maybe they should be pushing a vaccine that protects against Marxist tendencies, instead.

.....That'll show 'em.

Yeah almost all teachers are Marxists and Public 'Education' today is little more then Indoctrination.

The way to free one-self from this Totalitarian mode of thought (every-time Marxism tried = Totalitarianism) is to become a Conspiracy Theorist and learn more about some of the sinister roots of Marxism and the True powers behind it (one example is the Red Dragon Order Secret Society that controls Chinese Communist Party)

You may wish to read Orwells 'Animal Farm'.

Egalitarian Theory is actually utilized to make some 'more equal then others'.

So what you are saying is....

Because your teacher has a different political view point than you, you come running to ATS all scared and shocked.


Please get a grip.

Most of these type of educators are mush-headed fools anyway. All you have to do is find Anthony Sutton's work in print or on You Tube and go at her with the money trail. German gold via Wall Street, Trotsky hiding out in the US and Canada until being unleashed on Russia, Karl Marx being a mouthpiece for his publishing benefactors, also research the 1840 origins of B'nai B'rith in relation to Russian Jews and their desire for revolution which came to Russia not long after that.

Ask your teacher if she believes in the World Revolutionary March where the "Torch of Global Revolution" gets handed to different nations every few decades or so to make sure that revolution as such, never ceases on Earth.

Does she believe that revolution comes about naturally or is it funded? Certainly the money trail proves that wars and armies do not conjure themselves from the dust. No, but it is gold which makes them march and publish tracts and organize hatred, etc.

You'll find I think, that even them what hate gold with a passion, have lives what revolve around gold. So if you teacher wants to spout her Karl Marx schtuff, you need to know where her vulnerable spots are so you can hit her where it hurts. This means you should be armed with the money trail and have a detailed record of where the Marxist blind spots are. Eventually you'll be eating Marxists like Cheerios.

What kind of help are you looking for ?
Because I think it could be most beneficial to you (student) to go do the research yourself, unless you're afraid of finding out stuff that will shake your beliefs.
But then it is your choice to be a bad student and only look at things that fit your view of the world and ignore other arguments. If you find blindfolding yourself will help you understand things, suits you.

Unless you're not looking for arguments to counter her, but hope someone will go kill her for you, just like in the old times.

I don't see the problem. Try reading up on it first. If you then disagree with that aspect of it. Ask her opinion of why she believes in it. If you continue to disagree.... H.E.L.L.O you are in America. She can believe in Marxism all she wants as long as she teaches the agreed upon educational drivel required for the class you are in. Silly. Differences is what makes American so great!!

Sorry, I completely fail to see what the issue is here.

A person has a political opinion contrary to your own, and so... what? You are scared of that? You think she should be stopped?
What does it make you if you think you have a right to criticize or demonize a person with different beliefs?

How about growing up and having a debate while respecting another person's opinions? Start discussion and maybe you'll learn something (and from a teacher no less!
)

Personally, I think there is nothing but stigma here. Maybe you're afraid of what you might learn, maybe you're afraid of opening your mind to various ideas instead of sticking with an accepted dogma because it might force you to question, and maybe you fear others would judge you for your opinion?

Any political viewpoint (as in a label) is a generalized view, no person can ever agree with every tiny aspect one example propagates. There are infinite views between all political ideals, and I don't believe people should simply follow labels as a popular movement.

Again, I don't get what the problem is here.

It is important at this juncture to point out how truly dangerous Marxism is. Marxism is the ideology behind untold MILLIONS of deaths.

30 million died in Ukrainian famine
2 Million died in Soviet Gulags
100 million died in Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward in China

Clearly this death count should be reason enough to reject the Ideology.

I recommend you wait until you pass before letting her know how much of a disappointment to the species she has made herself. You can shame her publically so long as you the truth when you do.

Dig up some dirt and spread it around for all to see.

There is nothing wrong with shaming communist filth - even if they call themselves 'marxist' or 'communitarian' or whatever brand of socialism they hide under.

America is more marxist/socialist/communist than ever before - how do you like things?


*These people need to be denounced. Use your freedom of speech before it becomes a 'hate crime' to say something offensive.

No one ever said it was RIGHT. Everyone on ATS is always spouting that America is about Freedom of Speech. That means someone with a Marxism ideology CAN have that ideology. Even if it sucks. As long as the teacher is not spouting it in class then it's not a big deal. What that teacher does in private is her business as long as it falls within the legal limits of her pursuit of happiness.

That sucks but that is the whole point of Freedom of Speech. Someone will ALWAYS think something someone else believes/says is the most horrible thing there could ever be. Can you imagine what Hitler would have been like if born American?!?! God forbid.

Now that we seem to be heading towards Totalitarianism (sp xD) without the benefits of Marxism, it might even pay off to listen to her :]

Yes, and so is Religion. I would bet that more people have died in the name of any religion then any political ideology. Not saying that Religion is bad per sé but it is certainly not feared as much. Which is a bit strange to say the least.

Being a Marxist doesn't mean someone necessarily has a political agenda. Marxism is also an epistomological method using dialectical materialsim. It is only a way of approaching informationa and a way of thinking about the world.

I've read several of your posts and been impressed by the brevity and insight. Usually very articulate and balanced. Not too sure here. The OP doesn't state what subject is taught. Until we know the subject and how her political affinities cross over into her teaching strategies, there's no reason to condemn or criticize her. People in education are entitled to subscribe to a political ideology


reply to post by LostNemesis
What would be your solution? Should schools, colleges and universities be differentiated by our political leanings? A balanced education arises from exposure to different perspectives.

Marxism is not the cause of the deaths, the people enforcing it is. It's amazing how thick people are who spew false information and outright ignorance on the subject.

Marxism does not promote violence. Period.

And OP, go have fun being a slave to capitalism. When you reaize that the opportunity presented in America only applies to about 5% of its population, you'll see it's not all fun and games.
