From Dream to Nightmare: Cultural Marxism and the Fall of the West

When discussing complex issues such as Feminism, gender issues, societal collapse etc. it sometimes helps to step back and take a good look at the greater picture.  So. What do you see when observing your country? Do things appear pretty much effed up on all levels? What if I told you feminism – for all its poisonous venom – is but one festering boil of many…that have befouled and infected the West’s rotting body politic? And what if I told you all these issues were interconnected?

Feminism, the collapse of family and marriage, intersex alienation etc. is terribly troubling stuff. Yet in a sense it is only a symptom of something much larger. It is merely one manifestation of the West’s clandestine cultural marxist take over. Eh? Yes indeed. You are right now living in a marxist country. That’s right. Marxist. As in communist. Only it isn’t called that way. It’s still called the US. Or the UK. Or Sweden, France, Germany, whatever. The fact of the matter remains: your country was invaded not by an army but by an idea, a group of people. These people (academics) systematically spread propaganda which in turn – at a vulnerable moment – deeply affected (infected) students’ opinions and from thereon spread to the general population completely coopting your culture and thus changing the nature of your country.

So…what is cultural marxism? In a nutshell: marxism 2.0. First wave marxism (later 19. century) focused on the analysis of economics. It posited the theory of class struggle, the dualism of exploiter and exploited class. According to Marx it was an inevitable outcome that sooner or later the proletariat would rise and “break the shackles of oppression” ushering in the great socialist revolution etc. It was predicted this would occur during the next great conflict. Only when World War 1 started, British workers fought for Britain, French workers for France and German workers for Germany. Evidently, the marxist’ prognosis had proven to be flawed. So. After a lengthy period of reevaluation several marxist thinkers (i.e. Antonio Gramsci, Gyorgy Lucacs etc.) came to the conclusion that it had been these nations’ cultural identity which had prevented the socialist revolution.

*Because* of national solidarity (the big family), cultural values and a sense of familial duty (protection of the small family) men had fought in the trenches and laid down their lifes. Having realized this, Gramsci postulated that individual nation’s cultural values, societal mores and traditions would have to be deconstructed…as a prerequisite of socialist take over. And this is what cultural marxists by and large attempted from thereonwards. A first experiment was implemented by Georgy Lukacs in the chaos of post World War 1 Hungary. Not yet perfect in implementation it nonetheless serves as a chilling anecdote, especially when observed from our contemporary perspective:

In 1919, Georgy Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary.  He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary.  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 organized 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.”

This attempt was short lived and failed ere long (due to catastrophic societal consequences and subsequent reactionary rollback). The time was simply not yet ripe. Thus, the cultural marxists regrouped and consolidated their movement by infiltrating German academia via the University of Frankfurt. There, they founded the Frankfurt School of Social Sciences, or simply: the Frankfurt School. As can be imagined, success remained elusive…for the time being. By and large their ideology didn’t really gain traction. Not even in the troubled interwar German Weimar Republic, which was constantly whacked by political strife, radicalism etc. Certainly not in the US that remained strongly religious, patriarchal and traditional.

However, this all changed in 1933. Hitler assumed power in Germany and the cultural marxists fled. Where did they flee to? Well, heh, to the US of course! They simply relocated and started infiltrating the US academia and infecting American intellectuals with their “progressive” ideas. And, seemingly, it all made sense. Especially after 1941. Because if the US was fighting that greatest of all Satans, Adolf Hitler, then surely Hitler’s enemies were good people, right? Right. Suuure thing, pal. Well, Germany was crushed, the war was won and everything was fine and dandy. Afterwards, having accepted these cult-marxists and implicitly having fought for their ideas it became difficult to argue against them, to seriously oppose them. This is how *they* were able to market themselves as “progressive”. Conversely, gender roles, traditionalism, conservatism etc. started to be seen as problematic, as outdated, as “wrong”.

Nonetheless, superficially the US and its vassals in Europe were able to briefly recreate the old order (in the 1950s). But even then it was nothing but a weak facsimile of the past. A shortlived interlude from the encroaching torrent of post-modernism. Already cracks were forming. Cracks on several levels. For one, women had seemingly proven they could do all the things men could, by working in the factories during WWII. Their return to classical roles did not brook well with their perceptions. Another problem was what I call historical contamination or more simply phrased: guilt. After millions had died, after all the carnage and madness of two world wars, there was a cynical feeling of cultural nihilism and depression. After Auschwitz how could a German still be proud of his country, his culture? And how could a British or French guy be proud of his? After all hadn’t he enslaved half the world, conquering and exploiting untold other peoples? For now at least this was not a crisis, only a fissure. Why? Because the generation of WWII had been *socialized before* WWII. So the generation of the 40s and 50s was operating under the paradigms and values of the 20s and 30s.

But the writing was already pretty clearly on the wall. In 1955 Herbert Marcuse (another cultural marxist) wrote “Eros and civilization; a philosophical inquiry into Freud“. In it, he proclaimed all ills of society were due to repression. And if only all repression and restraints were fully removed society would organize itself for the common good. He advocated a general unleashing of Eros. Sexual liberation, experimentation and all that. He also wrote about the difference of “classic tolerance” (tolerance of both right and leftist thought) which he labelled “repressive tolerance” and compared it to “liberating tolerance” (tolerance of leftist thought, intolerance of the right) which he recommended as “progress”. He claimed following his advice would usher in a new dawn, an era of harmony and utopia. Shangri La. Other influential figures were Max Horkheimer, Erich Fromm, Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin and others. All of these shmucks were cultural marxists. They wrote books, essentially all the material the boomers would use for “their” revolution. The cultural marxist Frankfurt School thus primed and programmed the boomers. Like a remote-controlled cultural timebomb…ready to blow.

This was possible because of aforementioned guilt neurosis. The boomer generation grew up at a lowpoint of western civilization. Out of their perspective, it seemed, traditions were evil. Evil because of the holocaust. Evil because of Imperialism etc. So because the cultural marxists were publishing “progressive” stuff that sounded good and was confirming beliefs they already (subconsciously) held, they lapped it all up eagerly. In this highly volatile setting all they needed was some simple trigger, an ocasion of sorts. And the Vietnam War dropped by just at the nick of time. Perfect timing. The dominos fell, fighting errupted in Indochina and the S*it hit the fan.

The boomers – already suspicious due to their educational priming – now had all the “evidence” they needed to demonstrate the essentially barbaric nature of the old, patriarchal order and the requirement of something new, radical and “wonderful”. Sexual revolution. Hippies. Peace, love and understanding. Heh. They were pawns, primed and controlled by external forces. Did they know it? Probably not. If they had known they still wouldn’t have cared. They had their “mission”. In any case, these boomers – for the most part students and academics – did their thing. The great march through the institutions of the West: they systematically took over politics, media, education, culture etc. They changed the paradigms, the values, the consciousness, the face of the West. And they molded a new West (which I call “the Hegemony of Plastic“) along cultural marxist values:

  • feminism as an instrument to estrange the sexes and destroy family
  • largescale immigration to dilute and change the culture of the US (and other western countries) and create new victim groups
  • multiculturalism as a form of subconscious selfdenigration & selfhatred
  • political correctness as a totalitarian instrument to enforce above values and clamp down on dissent

And they were highly successful. We’re still experiencing the consequences even today. We’re in our present quandary because of them and their brainhogwashed delusions. It’s a form of madness on a societywide level. A form of self-loathing, self-hatred. Psychosis. The works. So to recap: The West in general *lost* WWII…and the US lost its “mind” during the Vietnam War. Ever since it (and in consequence the West in general) has become ever less democratic and evermore marxist and suicidal. As of 2012 we are up S*it Creek without a paddle, not far away from a totalitarian 1984 kind of dystopia. Orwellian. Either we break out of this paradigm or we are doomed. And we can only break out and fix our issues if we first understand them.

    Interesting stuff.

    This didnt happen though, as far as Im aware:

    “Because if the US was fighting that greatest of all Satans, Adolf Hitler”

    USA didnt fight the WWII? They jumped in the vagon against Japan, Pearl Harbor etc. It wasnt against the nazis.

    • umslopogaas says:

      Oh but they did.

      They pursued a “Germany first” strategy from the getgo, even though it was Japan that had originally attacked them. Roosevelt had supported the UK long before his formal entry into WWII (lend less agreements, cash’n carry etc.).

      Once Germany had declared war on them (shortly after Pearl Harbour) they sent *massive* aid to the UK and also the USSR. It is quite probable that it was US aid that allowed the USSR to survive in its most direst hour: the winter of 1941. With German panzers knocking on the gates of Moscow everything hung in the balance.

      By the way: I’m not defending Hitler here. Quite the contrary. For…the NSDAP was just another *leftwing* movement. “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei” = Nationalsocialist German Worker Party. It was a socialist-racist hybrid. A very strange combination. But using leftist rhetoric, methods and ideology.

      That was then, this is now. Then we had our merry dance with Nazis. Now we have – in essence – the same…only with Inter-Nazis. And whereas back then jews and slavs were the Untermenschen…this time around *we* are. We as men. Or worse: white men. But men in general are pretty much vermin in our new world order. Convenient scapegoats…for all the ills of the world.

    When USA bombed hiroshima (japan!) Hitler had been already dead for a few months and the war was over, at least the one against the nazis. USA’s angle seems to be more about oil than anything else. And I have read somewhere that Pearl Harbor was self provoked. Im not an historian but…

    • Jim says:

      The US was shipping arms, food, fuel, and other war goods to the UK long before its official entry into WWII. The British were using American tanks in North Africa and the NRA had taken up a civilian arms drive here where privately owned firearms were donated and shipped there to arm the civilian population. There were plenty of close calls between U-boats and American ships to the point the Hitler himself gave the order that no American vessel was to be harmed no matter the circumstance merely to avoid US entry in the war. His biggest blunder was declaring war on the US right after Pearl Harbor.

      The US did the same thing to Japan that we are currently doing to Iran and that is to cut off its ability to use their currency to buy commodities and trade. In Japan’s case, it was mainly the ability to buy oil. In Iran’s case, it’s ability to sell its oil but it’s ineffective because China and Russia are backing them up. And at the same time pushing to get the dollar of off reserve status.

      • YOHAMI says:

        Bro, but “shipping” or selling? if it was shipping, for free, did the US get loans from banks (in which case, the money came from banks, which financed the war)

        There’s a lot of stuff I dont know about the WWII, and a lot of masking there too. I’ve never had the patience to really dwelve into it.

      • Deansdale says:

        So you’ve never heard of D-Day, the Normandy landings? Come on, read some history before you try to argue about it FFS.

    • An American says:

      LOL Behold a lamb of the Cultural Marxist indoctrunation. ^^^^^^

    @YOHAMI:

    Bro, but “shipping” or selling? if it was shipping, for free, did the US get loans from banks (in which case, the money came from banks, which financed the war).

    These goods were essentially shipped for free. Whereas at the start of WWII (1939) Roosevelt tried to maintain the illusion of “selling stuff” it was soon given up. Officially, arms and other goods were “loaned” to the UK (and later the USSR). Repayment was never required, however, which made these actions evidently political, not economically motivated.

    Add to that the transfer of 50 old US destroyers to the UK (in 1941) in return for bases (afaik on Bermuda etc.) as well as US warships actively and robustly protecting British convoys during the first leg of their transatlantic travel (against German u-boats).

    Roosevelt *wanted* war against both Nazi Germany and Japan. In a way, you could call him the first truly leftist US politician (with his ‘New Deal’ and the systematic expansion of state etc.).

    Anyways, it was during his tenure that the US was infiltrated by above mentioned cultural marxists. Once they had established themselves in US universities and think tanks they used America’s cultural hegemony to spread these ideas to all other parts of the West.

    It’s a bit like an encephalitis. A virus invades a host and plants itself in the brain, taking over control of its host. An example of this is Rabies.

    Have you been reading or listening to Jim Marrs (or Lindsey Williams)?

    Some conspiracies make too much sense and answer too many questions to be lightly dismissed out-of-hand.

  5. Columnist says:

    The sexual liberation part backfired. Muslim immigrants in Europe do not like sexual liberation, and specifically attack its practioners. This lead to the rise of Pim Fortuyn.

    • Um hmmm…and they killed him dead. Overall, incidentally, this is a splendid essay by Umslop…I’ve never seen the words “Jew” and “Jewish” euphemized so many times and in so many different ways.

  6. Peacemaker says:

    Solid, comprehensive post.

    Cultural “Marxism” is a religious institution. “Experts” make up the rules as they wish. If you follow them, you place yourselves at the mercy of their Infallibility.

  9. An American says:

    Not too many have gotten the point.

  10. Richard says:

    A lot about the political history relating to cultural Marxism here, but there were some essential ingredients to the disaster that you overlook.

    The Sexual Revolution was made possible by birth control. Once that got underway, the inhibitions went out the window in every area.

    Next was the use of drugs on a massive scale to repudiate the “straight” world’s ethos.

    With rockers getting all the groupies they could handle (literally) and their role in “turning on” their generation, the conformity of the bewildered young to “sex, drugs and rock and roll” led to the general adoption of the whole political view via “go along to get along” – because it’s easier to do that than research politics you aren’t interested in and form your own opinions. Same story on campuses everywhere now.

    Ever notice how the left is all about conformity? As Lennon put it in his Marxist anthem: “We hope some day you will join us, and the world will live as one.”

  11. evilwhitemalempire says:

    glad to know that there are still mras around that see that the problem is much larger than their particular grievances

    no telling how many mras and antifems bloggers I’ve come across that, if you use words like “cultural Marxism” or the “rockefellar foundation” in your arguments, trot out the reptile alien strawman

  12. Robert What? says:

    Marxism is at heart a parasitic ideology that needs a strong host to survive. It will be interesting to see how it fares as more and more producers start catching on that being a producer is for suckers and stop producing – at least at high capacity. That is what caused the fall of the Soviet Union (although some argue that the Soviet Union didn’t collapse – it just moved to the US). If a host dies, the parasite also dies, which seems to elude most Marxists / Progressives.
