The Poison and the Antidote

By William Lind - AUGUST 03, 2017

No historian worth his honoraria ascribes major social change to a single factor.  That is ideology, not history.  Nonetheless, an ideology has been and remains a large cause of America’s cultural and moral decline over the past half century.  It is an ideology whose origins, history, and goals are known only to a few academics, and it is an ideology that prefers not to be named.  Indeed, it refuses to name itself.  Known most commonly as “multiculturalism” or “political correctness,” it is in fact Cultural Marxism—Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms in an effort that goes back not to the 1960’s but to 1919.

Marxist theory had predicted that if another great European war broke out, the proletariat across Europe would rise up as one man to overthrow bourgeois liberalism and establish communism.  But when war came in 1914, that didn’t happen.  In 1919, two Marxist theorists, working independently, Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Georg Lukács in Hungary, explained why.  They said that Western culture and the Christian religion so blinded the working class in Western Europe to its true class interests that communism was impossible until both could be destroyed.  :snip:
