Message from EKP Director – Although we are pretty passionate in our contempt for Cultural Marxism-which in our opinion, remains the bane of Western Civilisation, we thought we’d share an article from our good friends at Smash Cultural Marxism, as an introduction to the subject.
By now most of the regulars on our site are well aware of what Cultural Marxism entails. They should, as we discuss it enough. Without a doubt, each and every one of us has been impacted by Cultural Marxism. From pervading anti-Europeanism, low male self-esteem, to the acceptance of sexually deviant lifestyles as normal, rampant sexually transmitted disease, gun crime, normalisation of fatherless homes-anywhere there’s media induced ugliness, you’ll find Cultural Marxism and its impact on society.
So what is Cultural Marxism? For all intents and purposes, CM is Marxism, translated from economic into cultural and social terms. Where Marxists were able to infect the lands of the former Soviet Union with Economic Marxism, they found little luck corrupting the soul of Western European man…,
SCM writes more on the subject.
“As WW1 was upon us in 1914, leading Communists believed that in the event of an outbreak of war, the workers would rise up and realise their ‘true’ class consciousness, and turn away from their respective countries favouring Communist revolution. This as we all know did not happen with any long term success outside of Russia. The men of the respective Nations embroiled in the war signed up in their millions to fight for their beloved Nations. They paid the ultimate price in their millions for the love of and loyalty to the Nation.
This was obviously a smack in the face to the Communists, their predictions had been proven to be wrong. The cold hard reality that they had to face, was that their rhetoric and ideological revolution was not going to happen as they would have wished.
It is important to note that Communist revolution did occur in Russia in 1917, and the result of that violent revolution had resulted in the slaughter of 30+ million people including the Russian Tsar and his family. Communists did try and create revolution after WW1 in Germany but it was swiftly repelled by returning German soldiers from the front lines in the aftermath of WW1. Communism also briefly had a grip on Hungary during 1918-19 as the Bolshevik Bela Kun regime took power.
With the widespread failure of Communist revolution throughout the rest of Europe, some Communists sought to understand why. Two Marxist theorists, Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs settled upon one definitive reason. Western culture and Christianity were the reasons why the workers had come to reject Communism. Thier ‘true’ Marxist class interests had been ‘blinded’ by the foundations of Western society. Indeed in 1919, Lukacs asked, “Who will save us from Western civilisation?”
That same year, when he became Deputy Commissar for Culture in that short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun government in Hungary, one of Lukacs’s first acts was to introduce sex education into Hungary’s public schools. He knew that if he could destroy the West’s traditional sexual morals, he would have taken a giant step toward destroying Western culture itself. (More on that later)
These reasons behind the failure of Communism throughout Europe, led in 1923 to a group of German Marxists establishing a think tank in Frankfurt, known as the Institute for Social Research which later became known as simply, the Frankfurt School. It was led by Felix Weil, a political scientist with a passion for Marxism. Weil had studied at the university, writing a dissertation socialising the economy. His father (a wealthy merchant) set up a substantial endowment for the institute. One of the major purposes of the institute was to study (and eventually explain) the dynamics of social change. This school of transformational Marxist thought was the birthplace of Cultural Marxism.
The aim was to transform Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms. To do this required a rejection and reevaluation of certain elements of Marxist theory. The working class had rejected Communism they said because of Western culture, which was embedded into the societies of the working class. The only way to change that was to destroy the culture from within.
They needed a ‘new’ revolutionary to advance the revolution. Who then, if not the working class? Herbert Marcuse another prominent member of the Frankfurt school answered this question In the 1950s, a coalition of blacks, students, feminist women and homosexuals would form the basis of the new cultural revolution. Through their empowerment in society and through a systematic brainwashing process, they would be the tools through which the traditional culture of the West could be subverted and destroyed bringing about the Communist revolution they so desired.
During the 1930s a political ideology grew out of the orchestrated ruins of post WW1 Germany that was vehemently opposed to Marxism. The rise of National Socialism meant that the Marxists of the Frankfurt school plotting the downfall of the West, were basically run out of town. This did not mean an end to the Frankfurt school, they simply moved to America, the move was to spell disaster for the USA as the move shifted the attention from Western culture in Europe to America. They returned to Frankfurt in the 1950s.
The new revolution needed more than mere words, it needed a strategy. Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist wrote in the ‘Prison Notebooks’ that it would be a “long march through the institutions”. In other words, gain control of the institutions that had influence over the people, and use them to turn the people against themselves and their culture. Media, education, government, and the church being some of the most important out of many. Among Marxists, Gramsci is noted for his theory that cultural hegemony is the means to class dominance. In his view, a new “Communist man” had to be created through a changed culture before any political revolution was possible. This led to a focus on the efforts of intellectuals in the fields of education and media.
Georg Lukacs believed that for a new Marxist culture to emerge, the existing culture must be destroyed.
He said, “I saw the revolutionary destruction of society as the one and only solution to the cultural contradictions of the epoch…. Such a worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries.”
The idea of a long march through Western institutions was to be a gradual erosion of morality, and to implant criticism of the culture at the core of the education system via a strategy known as ‘Critical Theory’. The target of the criticism was the culture. Critical Theory was essentially destructive criticism, of the main elements of Western culture, including Christianity, capitalism, authority, the family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, sexual restraint, loyalty, patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism, convention and conservatism.
To criticise all of these as part of a brainwashing process has been very successful. The Marxist cultural alternative, that arose out of critical theory whilst false and severely damaging, has become the ‘norm’ in most if not all universities and schools. They repeat the brainwashing process free of any opposition, turning generation after generation into Cultural Marxist zombies who parrot the mantra everywhere they go.
“Critical Theory, as its name implies, criticises. What deconstruction does to literature, Critical Theory does to societies.” (Intellectual Morons, p 15-16)
Critical Theory has played a crucial role in the ideological assault on the West.
Three of the most vital aspects of Western culture to be undermined, criticised and destroyed were Christianity, the family and Nationalism.
Nationalism is targeted by the enforced implementation of multiculturalism, and via state created race laws to stifle and shut down Nationalist opposition. Multiculturalism is also used to dilute the indigenous ethnic make up of Europe, and to remove every sense of identity to ones Nation.
Both Christianity and the family have suffered a relentless attack. Before the founding of the Institute for social research and before Gramsci’s prison notebooks, Georg Lukacs had already set in motion a strategy to demoralise the morality of Hungary during the Bela Kun regime. Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated patriarchal family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow. Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools. Sex lectures were organised and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority. All of this was accompanied by a reign of cultural terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters.
Hungary’s youth, having been fed a steady diet of values-neutral (atheism) and radical sex education while simultaneously encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths.
Gramsci’s prescription and Lukacs’ plans were the precursor to what Cultural Marxism … later brought into American schools. (Linda Kimball)
This was to be a pre-cursor to what the rest of the Western world would suffer as a result of the Frankfurt School.
This added strategy of sexual promiscuity was incorporated into the Frankfurt school via Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis. His crazy work “the psychosexual stages of development” was attractive to the school as it further aided the aim of debasing the foundations of Western society, especially the family and the morality it instilled.
According to Georg Lukacs’ “The demons were back, the evil was being generated in your own mind, and you needed a new priesthood to save you”.
The crackpot ideas of Freud added to that of the transformational Marxists led to the term Freudo-Marxism. Freud’s theories inspired future Jewish psychologist Wilhelm Reich, who created and spread the term “Sexual Revolution” in 1930 and it was to became a feature of Frankfurt school subversion of Western society. The sexual revolution was inspired by Freud and to this day has a devastating impact on traditional morality and the traditional family.
Freud’s psychological theories were formed by his own dreams and childhood memories. He claimed he remembered hating his father and was convinced he had sexual feelings towards his mother.
Freud later wrote “I found in myself a constant love for my mother, and jealousy of my father. I now consider this to be a universal event in childhood”.
In 2004, Jewish author Nathan Abrams wrote in “The Jewish Quarterly” that “Jews were also at the vanguard of the sexual revolution in the 1960’s. Wilhelm Reich, Herbert Marcuse, and Paul Goodman replaced Marx, Trotsky, and Lenin as required revolutionary reading”.
Abrams also refers to an interview with Al Goldstein, the Jewish publisher of Screw Magazine who claimed “the only reason Jews are in pornography is that we think Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks, we don’t believe in authoritarianism. Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture”.
Everything that has come out of the Frankfurt school has been specifically aimed at destroying our heritage and our people. Our children are being led by the pied piper of evil, led to their eternal immersion in a world of mental subversion and destruction. Our culture, and our unifying common understanding of what is right and wrong is in the hands of satanic direction. Society is sick, poisoned with a slow killing disease that eats away at the immune system of a people and their heritage. The truth is out there, kept from you purposefully. Isn’t it time you stopped the denial and the apathy, isn’t it time you recognised truth as it stares you in the face.
