Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. An intellectual Soylent Green is happening in which western culture has become the main course
and Political Correctness the secret weapon. Here more than in anything else, knowledge is the weapon to fight back with!
Marxist theory said that if a major war broke out in Europe, the workers of every country would join together in a revolution to overthrow
capitalism and replace it with international socialism. But when war came, that did not happen. What had gone wrong?
Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Georg Lukacs in Hungary were two Marxist theorists that independently came up with the same answer. They said that
Western culture and the Christian religion had so blinded the working class to its true Marxist class interests that Communism was impossible in the
West until traditional culture and Christianity were destroyed. When Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the Bolshevik government of
Hungary in 1919, one of his first acts was to introduce sex education into Hungarian schools. He knew that destroying traditional sexual morals would
be a major step toward destroying Western culture itself.
Lukacs became a major influence on a Marxist think tank established in 1923 at Frankfurt University in Germany, the Institute for Social
Research, commonly known as the Frankfurt School. When Max Horkheimer took over as director of the Frankfurt School in 1930, he set about in earnest
to do Lukacs' bidding by translating Marxism from economic into cultural terms. Other Frankfurt School members devoted to this intellectually
difficult task were Theodor Adorno, Eric Fromm, Wilhelm Reich and Herbert Marcuse.
The Frankfurt School's key to success was crossing Marx with Freud. They argued that just as under capitalism everyone lived in a state of
economic oppression, so under Western culture people lived under psychological repression. From psychology they also drew the technique of
psychological conditioning. Want to "normalize" homosexuality? Just show television program after television program where the hero and
normal-seeming white male is homosexual. Anyone notice any relevance to this in todays world of television?Brokeback Mountain? Milk? Hrmmm...
In 1933 the Frankfurt School moved from Germany to New York City. There, its products included "critical theory," which demands constant,
destructive criticism of every traditional social institution, starting with the family. It also created a series of "studies in prejudice,"
culminating in Adorno's immensely influential book, The Authoritarian Personality, which argued that anyone who defends traditional culture is a
"fascist" and also mentally ill. That is why anyone who now dares defy "PC" gets sent to "sensitivity training," which in reality is psychological
conditioning designed to produce submission!
In the 1950s and 1960s, Herbert Marcuse translated the abstruse work of the other Frankfurt School thinkers into books college students could
understand, such as Eros and Civilization, which became the Bible of the New Left in the 1960s. Marcuse injected the Frankfurt School's cultural
Marxism into the baby boom generation, to the point where it is now that generation's ideology. We know it as "multiculturalism," "diversity" or just
That is the dirty little secret of Political Correctness, folks: it is a form of Marxism. If the average American knew that, I suspect
Political Correctness would be in serious trouble.
Most people in the U. S. hate Political Correctness, but they don't know how to fight it. The way to fight it is to find out what it really is,
and make sure all your friends find out too. I reccommend watching this series on youtube.
