A worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values
and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries"

West so corrupt that it stinks"

Are Progressives 'Cultural Marxists'? (28 November 2018)
"Cultural Marxism, if you're not familiar, is a term commonly used by those on the Right to identify an agenda and a way of thinking prevalent in our culture and amongst our elites. I say on the Right, as it's one of those terms, like globalist and authoritarian, rarely owned by those it describes. But is it fair? There's been some debate about this recently. There are a number of other terms commonly used to describe broadly the same thing, among them postmodernism, multiculturalism, political correctness and identity politics. So what we are basically talking about here is anything that claims the mantle of progressive social policy. What does this look like?..."
Programmes of Treason (02 July 2018)

The Origin of Identity Politics and Political Correctness (17 August 2014)
"'Identity politics' (sometimes dubbed 'political correctness') is the result of a political-Left major backlash against the mass of ordinary people (in Europe and 'the West'), beginning in the 1920s/30s, in the wake of the persistent failure of Marxist theory to be realised in European 'revolution' or any real change through democracy. In shifting the blame away from Marxist theory and those gullible enough to adhere to it, and on to those the theory had prescribed and predicted would have been the beneficiaries, if only they had responded accordingly ('the [white, male] workers'); then the cognitive-dissonance within the political-left mindset caused by this crisis to an extent was salved..."
Cultural Marxism (28 June 2014)
"Marx and Engels published The Communist Manifesto in 1848. The goal of worldwide revolution did not quite pan out during Marx's lifetime. Indeed, it might have seemed to him that his hopes were not going to be realised. In fact, things weren't looking too good when he died in 1883 and only a handful of people bothered to show up for his funeral. Perhaps Marxism would have been buried with Marx back then, but he still had plenty of avid followers. His vision for the destruction of the West was still carried on by others. In the same year of his death a new movement was launched to continue his creams..."
Antonio Gramsci: Take Over the Institutions! (26 April 2014)

How to Destroy a Country: Part One (of Three) (15 March 2012)
"Every generation bemoans the slippage of standards and the 'going to the dogs' of society, but history shows that civilisations and peoples really do collapse utterly. Some even become extinct. Great Britain, needless to say, is no longer as great as it once was, but has the degradation we see around us on a daily basis been caused by well-intentioned liberal stupidity, or by brilliantly-planned leftist malevolence?...
How to Sabotage a Nation (19 March 2011)
"Do nations just drift into decline, stagnation, and degeneracy? Or is the process aided and abetted by those who actively seek to undermine and subvert a nation? The more one learns about activist and subversive groups, the more one sees that the latter plays a big role in all this. Indeed the student of history learns that while nations often decay from within, this process is greatly amplified and accelerated by groups who are working overtime to implement their radical social agendas..."
On Capturing a Culture (28 September 2010)
"We have a pro-death atheist running our country, a homosexual humanist second in command, and now we have sworn in our first Muslim MP with a Koran. Oh, and did I mention that this year's national parliamentary prayer breakfast has been cancelled? Any one of these items alone may not seem like too much, but taken together they amount to something. ... Cumulatively, these - and other examples - can and will result in the overthrowing of a culture..."
The Frankfurt School and the War on the West (11 May 2009)
"The cultural and ideological battles raging around us do not exist in a vacuum, nor have they happened by accident. There are those who hate the West and want to destroy it and make it into their own image. Many groups and individuals are actively at work in this assault on the West. Many movements and groups can be mentioned, but here I wish to focus on just one..."
Who Stole Our Culture? (24 May 2007)
"It didn't just 'happen'. In fact a deliberate agenda was followed to steal our culture and leave a new and very different one in its place. The story of how and why is one of the most important parts of [the West's] history - and it is a story almost no one knows. The people behind it wanted it that way. ... To understand anything, we have to know its history..."
Cultural Marxism (15 February 2007)

Political Correctness / Cultural Marxism (November 2004)
"[The West] today is dominated by a system of beliefs, attitudes and values that we have come to know as 'Political Correctness'. For many it is an annoyance and a self-parodying joke. But Political Correctness is deadly serious in its aims, seeking to impose a uniformity of thought and behaviour on all [Westerners]. It is therefore totalitarian in nature. Its roots lie in a version of Marxism which sees culture, rather than the economy, as the site of class struggle..."
The Origins of Political Correctness (05 February 2000)
"For the first time in our history, [Westerners] have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word denounced as offensive or insensitive, or racist, or sexist, or homophobic. ... The name [Political Correctness] originated as something of a joke, literally in a comic strip, and we tend still to think of it as only half-serious. In fact, it's deadly serious..."
History of Political Correctness (No Date)

"Have you ever stopped to wonder why 40% of people don't bother to vote anymore? Have you ever stopped to wonder why, which ever party is in power, nothing ever gets any better? Have you ever stopped to wonder why all the three major political parties in the UK have broadly the same policies? The answer is simple - political correctness..."
"Many factors have contributed to the liberal, permissive and anti-Christian philosophical approach which underpins much of modern life in Europe and North America.

"Who in [the West] today is at work destroying our traditions, our family bonds, our religious beginnings, our reinforcing institutions, indeed, our entire culture?

"In the 1920s, the vast majority of Marxist-influenced academics were in Europe and America. They had expected that a war would cause the Workers to rise up, and rule in a Marxist Revolution, [and] this to spread after the Bolshevik uprising in Russia. When the 'Communist uprising' did not spread, two leading lights (Gramsci and Adorno) came to the same conclusion: A Revolution could not be guaranteed success (or to last if it were successful) - if based only on Traditional Marxism; Western society was too ingrained with Christianity and the traditional values that it espoused - the culture had to be changed first, before the Revolution could take root. Therefore, Christianity and traditional values must be destroyed. This is cultural Marxism..."

Dworkin's Dangerous Idea: Steve Moxon Deconstructs Identity Politics
The following extended extract is from the article: The Origin of 'Identity Politics' & 'Political Correctness'
"Identity politics (sometimes dubbed 'political correctness') is the result of a political-Left major backlash against the mass of ordinary people (in Europe and 'the West'), beginning in the 1920s/30s, in the wake of the persistent failure of Marxist theory to be realised in European 'revolution' or any real change through democracy. In shifting the blame away from Marxist theory and those gullible enough to adhere to it, and on to those the theory had prescribed and predicted would have been the beneficiaries, if only they had responded accordingly ('the [white, male] workers'); then the cognitive-dissonance within the political-left mindset caused by this crisis to an extent was salved"
"As with any fervent ideology, a hallmark of the political-Left is interpreting anything and everything in its own ideological terms to claim as a manifestation of the ideology and its prophecy - jumping on a bandwagon, so to speak; though here only to hijack it. The bandwagon here was, of course, the American civil rights movement, which though enjoying ubiquitous support within black communities - to the point often of various forms of extremism - featured virtually nil endorsement of socialism ... It is from the time of this co-option that 'identity politics' dates; many considering that the movement was incorporated into the Left in the wake of King's assassination in 1968 - the major turning-point year in political-Left politics generally"
"'Civil rights', as the first great 'single-issue' campaign, served not least to provide an acceptable cloak for the Left to avoid provoking a resurgence of McCarthysim. The major social upheaval of 'civil rights' with its large-scale and widespread rioting was easily the nearest thing in then recent US history to look like the promised Marxist 'revolution', and obviously was just the practical application the 'theory' was seeking. Moreover, the protagonists (black Americans) were eminently separable form the now despised 'workers' per se, in being presentable as a new 'group; from outside of the former fray of 'boss' versus 'worker'.
"This accident of history served to add 'black' to 'woman' as 'the new oppressed' ... 'The worker' in effect was retrospectively stereotyped as both 'man' and 'white'. With the inverse of this stereotype of 'white' being not just 'black American' but 'black' - that is, ethnic-minority generically ... so it was that the new 'agents of social change' / 'disadvantaged' / 'oppressed' were extended from women to also include all ethnic minorities"
"It is only with the knowledge of how this developed that sense can be made of why ethnicity is held above the myriad other possible differences that could be utilised as in-group markers, when in fact there is nothing inherent in ethnicity as an in-group marker to produce inter-group prejudice that is particularly more pernicious"
"Indeed, the worst inter-communal conflicts nominally between different ethnicities usually are between different cultural heritages with no discernible 'racial' differences of any kind - and what (non-ethnic) differences there are can be minimal; the lack of contrast actually fuelling the intensity of conflict, such is the need for groups to feel distinguished from each other"
"Furthermore, ethnic prejudice is anything but restricted to or even predominantly 'white' on 'black': inter-ethnic (eg, 'black' on Asian) and ethnic-on-'white' 'racism' can be, often is and may usually be the greater problem; and a negative attitude to a certain ethnicity does not imply a similar attitude to other ethnicities"
"The specific US experience, given the highly divisive politics in the wake of the American Civil War over the basis of the Southern US economy in African slavery, does not translate to elsewhere; notably not to Europe - as was starkly evidenced in the experience of World War II 'black' American GIs stationed in England in how they were favourably received by locals, who sided with them when discriminated against"
"'Racial divides' in European 'white' host countries are the result not of mutual antipathy but affiliative forces, principally within migrant enclaves and secondarily within the 'host' community; in both cases being through in-group 'love', not out-group 'hate'" [EMcD: though the latter part of this observation is indeed true in normal circumstances, this does not, of course, take account of the Islamic/Koranic doctrines of Al-Hijra (Immigration), Taqiyya (Lying and Deceit), and Razzia/Ghazwa (Rape and Slavery), Dawa (Cultural and Stealth Jihad), and Terrorist and Violent Jihad, carried out by fundamentalist Muslims as they settle in increasing numbers in Western countries with the sole and deliberate purpose of making every remaining Dar al-Harb ('House of War': i.e. any non-Muslim country) into a Dar al-Islam ('House of Submission': i.e all Muslim countries) until Islam finally achieves its longed-for global Caliphate.]
[End of Extract]
"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.
Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.
To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):
(1) the creation of racism
One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:
the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and
mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary
educators of their children,
"There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state:
"Woe unto them that call evil
good, and good evil;
