To understand we have to go back to Marx. Although Marx explained capitalism perfectly, he did get a number of things wrong, including his predictions. In the coming WW1, the soldiers did not rise up and refuse to fight, not did communism spread across Europe as predicted. There were a few attempts such as the Munich Soviet and the Bela Kun Soviet in Hungary, but generally no one was interested.
In 1922, the second International chaired by Lenin sought to find the answers, among whom was an Italian Marxist intellectual called Antonio Gramsci. Eventually, Gramsci returned to Italy, was promptly arrested and thrown in jail as a threat to public security. During the many years he spent in prison he wrote ‘Prison notebooks.’ Gramsci found the answer. It wasn’t class, it wasn’t capitalism; it was culture! This wasn’t just a discovery, it was a history changer. Remove the traditional norms and values of society and that society will collapse. But who was to lead this revolution in place of ‘the workers’? The answer was the dispossessed, the minorities, the marginalized … all those who didn’t fit into the status quo.
Gramsci’s notebooks were forgotten, but during the 80s under Reagan in the US and Thatcher in the UK, Marxists took a back seat and the same old question cropped up. Why weren’t the workers demanding a revolution and in the search, Gramsci’s works were rediscovered.
Cultural Marxism is about using the minorities as the catalyst for the revolution instead of the workers and we can see this all around us as the various groups spring up. Gay rights, the feminists, BLM, Antifa, immigrants … And not a worker to be seen. The purpose of cultural Marxism is to destroy traditional society to the point that the population themselves demand authoritarianism to save them. Under the guise of freedom and liberalism, the EU arose out of the ashes of the former Soviet Union and in the US, Obama came to collectivize the minorities. The Cultural Revolution is in full swing right across the western world.
Often referred to as the ‘quiet revolution’ Cultural Marxism involved taking over the institutions. That we can also see and the way it was done. The ‘Frankfurt School’ where this all stemmed from produced 11 points to destroy traditional society and its culture.
1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion.
3. The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children.
4. The undermining of schools’ and teachers’ authority.
5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking.
7. Emptying of churches.
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits.
10. Control and dumbing down of media.
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
This didn’t happen by accident, it was planned decades ago and you can now see the results. The purpose is to usher in an elite led dictatorship not by coercion, but by popular demand. For those that don’t buy into it there’s political correctness which was an additional component to stifle criticism. Lenin would have been amazed at how many ‘useful idiots’ it seduced. All this is where ‘freedom’ and ‘liberalism’ is taking us.
