I was having a discussion over at The Rational Male and a commenter there asked me to do a piece on Cultural Marxism. I’m going to make this easy on myself by mainly posting links to other places that have articles of interest, and repeating some of my comments from the Rational Male.

But first a link to a post I did a while back (2007). Cultural Marxism. And then a video. Feminism gets mentioned about 7 minutes and 15 seconds in.

Herbert Marcuse

You can find a series of interviews with Herbert Marcuse at the bottom of this page: The Cultural Marxist Origins of Modern Progressivism.

Marcuse’s mission was to dismantle American society by using diversity and ‘multiculturalism’ as crowbars with which to pry the structure apart, piece by piece. He wanted to set blacks in opposition to whites, set all ‘victim groups’ in opposition to the society at large. Marcuse’s theory of victim groups as the new proletariat, combined with Horkheimer’s critical theory, found an outlet in academia, where it became the basis for the post-structural movement–Gender Studies, LGBT/’Queer’ Studies, African-American Studies, Chicano Studies, etc. All of these ‘Blank Studies’ brazenly describe their mission as tearing down traditional Judeo-Christian values and the accepted traditions of Western culture, and placing in their stead a moral relativism that equates all cultures and all philosophies–except for Western civilization, culture, and philosophy, which are ‘exploitative’ and ‘bad.

The problem the opposition to these Cultural Marxists has is that through government policies many of these groups have been oppressed. The answer that opposes the Marxist view is smaller more limited government. What the Marxists want is more government to oppose government. A bigger dose of the poison.

Where they are screwing up is in opposing Prohibition. Anti-Prohibition is inherently a smaller government movement.

Heresy alert: The Culture Warriors on the Right are inherently in league with the Cultural Marxists. Both believe in government’s role in culture. Which is the inherent problem. They may consider themselves in opposition but in fact they give the Cultural Marxists power by insisting on government’s role in culture.

Cultural Marxism And Feminism

Cultural Marxism Produces Matriarchy

Here is an explanation from 2009 about how we got “Rape Culture” that produced the Rolling Stone article of recent fame. The Menace of Cultural Marxism.

Essentially, it was necessary to rewrite history from the perspective of viewing almost everyone as having been ruthlessly oppressed by straight, white men for all of history, and reduce our understanding both of all of the past and the present structures in society to a vision which views the entire narrative as one extended campaign of white male rape and domination of everyone and everything else.

For those of you who haven’t been following the Rolling Stone story here is some background: The full demise of Rolling Stone’s rape story.

Well that ought to be enough to start a discussion.
