    Something wicked this way comes...

    In early 20th Century a group of German Marxists created a think tank known as The Frankfort School to plan the destruction of the European Western Culture and transform it to their idea of Utopia.

    Cultural Marxism: The origins of the present day social justice movement, and political correctness.
    In 1923, a group of German Marxists influenced by Gramsci and Lukacs as well as the the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and the sociologist Max Weber, opened a think tank at Frankfurt University called The Institute for Social Research. This would become simply known as The Frankfurt School.

    The main thinkers here were Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Wilhelm Reich, Herbert Marcuse, and Erich Fromm.


    The basic strategies of Marxist Elites are methodical and long range and their primary weapons are control of education/media, inciting division along every line of society, propaganda and indoctrination.

    And the most vulnerable groups of these tactics that are generally targeted first are the rebellious young, the perpetually poor and the steady flow of victims of endless racism.

    Cultural hegemony stated the various factors that made Western civilization what it was, and was thus preventing the communist revolution. The key was to continue the class war but at the same, undermine these factors from within. These factors were:
    Christianity
    Authority
    Sexual restraint
    Personal responsibility
    Heredity
    Law
    Truth
    Family
    Patriotism and national unity
    Community
    Conservatism
    Language
    Tradition

    Gramsci believed that the media and academia had to issue a counter-hegemony message, which would help undermine these planks of Western culture.


    But after the Frankfort School Marxist were forced to abandon their plan to destroy the European Western Culturee they fled to the US where their plan was reassigned to the destruction of American Western Culture.

    When Hitler rose to power in 1933, these thinkers fled to the United States.....These intellectuals arrived in New York City, taking up positions at Columbia University. The Frankfurt School was loosely reestablished at Columbia, this time focusing on American society, rather than German.

    Guaranteed Constitutional rights and restricted government power; made American Western Civilization the perfect environment for Progressives to indoctrinate new recruits.

    At some point; America Marxism gave rise to the Progressive Movement which is simply the modern day sanitized term for Marxist but none the less a totalitarian ideology.

    This Progressive Movement has infiltrated the institutions of Education and Main Stream Media in America and have now moved into positions of control over the great majority.

    The term "cultural Marxism" died when O'Reilly was busted for sex crimes.

    America is populated politically by Dems, Pubs, and Trump supporters.
    Russian trolls and their supporters go on Ignore, automatically: no second chance.

    Dr. Fauci suggests strongly that drinking alcohol helps to surviveTrump's briefings on the Coronavirus.

    If those thinkers wanted to destroy "personal responsibility" in America, then it seems that they have succeeded brilliantly.

    Whenever an individual does something bad in this country, s/he will have liberal defenders who will excuse the bad behavior by crying: "The little darlings are simply responding to the injustices of society."

    When (IF) one takes the time to read the article linked to in the OP, they will find the following

    “So where does that leave us today? Is there a Marxist conspiracy to overthrow Western society?”

    I highly doubt it. There are those that think that there are boogeymen behind the scenes orchestrating these events, but I think a number of influential people just spread bad ideas which festered and became more and more extreme over time. I do think that many have taken advantage of this though, mainly by appealing to the greed, narcissism, and sense of entitlement that many in recent generations have in order to sell them things, get votes, and control them. These ideas have appealed to a disgruntled (sometimes justified, sometimes not) population that has longed for egalitarianism, which I believe is largely unattainable.
    "greed, narcissism, and sense of entitlement" would seem to apply more to those who advocate free-market capitalism (Trumpies) than it does to liberal "culture warriors".
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    I have noticed this new hysteria lately. Seems like a distraction from what is happening in the White House, senate, Supreme Court, federal courts, etc.
    Business as usual.

    Re: Something wicked this way comes...

    Thank God Hitler drove them out of Europe where western civilization meant two world wars, genocide and imperialism. Who wouldnt prefer those things?

    I took several college courses that involved reading Herbert Marcuse. You needn't worry.I could barely understand him. I bought a book, The Meaning of Marcuse, and I could barely understand that.

    Wilhelm Reich was quite a bit easier. The Mass Psychology of Fascism had some pretty good stuff. He addresses the kind of thinking that goes into this screed above, he talks about worker-run businesses and other things.

    I believe he died in a US prison, if that makes you feel any better.
