Cultural Marxism's "Long March Through The Institutions" of Western Civilisation

revolutionary destruction of Society as the one and only solution.
A worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values
and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries"
[George Lukacs, The Frankfurt School]

West so corrupt that it stinks"
[Willi Munzenberg, The Frankfurt School]

The Riff Raff Are Just So Awful, Darling (26 April 2019)
"Few events demonstrate the hypocrisy that lies at the heart of modern liberalism than Dame Emma Thompson flying from LA to London to tell all the little people that they must de-industrialise within seven years and return to the economic and social dark age. Of course, it is the little people who must do all the returning. The little people who are routinely branded racist, homophobic, misogynist - Christian! Asked if she flew economy class from LA to reduce her own 'carbon' footprint, Ms Antoinette replied, 'I b***** well don't, no.' Suffice that she flaunts how much she cares about the planet: Perish the thought she should consider doing what she actually preaches. The liberal elites in this country and elsewhere have wrapped themselves in a cloak of moral authority that accepts no argument ... always remember that they are good, and you are bad..."
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?..."
When Does the Left Go Too Far? (09 October 2018)
"'If we can agree that the left can go too far, which it clearly can, then how would my worthy opponents precisely define when the left that they stand for has gone too far?' This is a quote from the Canadian psychologist Dr Jordan B. Peterson in a debate about political correctness. When I first heard this question, I was taken aback. This seems, on the surface at least, to be a simple and straightforward question..."
Liberals? That's the Last Thing They Are (25 April 2018)
"Liberal is one of those words whose meaning has morphed into the exact opposite of the original. Just as those who grew up in the eighties and nineties may remember using the word 'wicked' to describe something innovative, exciting and worthy of hyperbolic praise rather than something evil and diabolical, so 'liberal' has come to mean 'illiberal'. It wasn't always thus. Liberalism, in its 18th century day, meant freedom of conscience and religious belief, and the freedom to use one's own intelligence and reason to discuss and debate openly and freely in the Socratic tradition..."
The Confused Left (04 March 2018)
"When it comes to opinions that differ from theirs, they are all for silencing those daring to hold those different opinion[s] - certainly in public. From banning them on social media to shouting them down on comment pages, to no platforming, to 'demonstrating' - it's all one and the same: make opposing opinions vanish from the public space. However, truly vile, offensive 'opinions' and videos are protected ... what has led The Left to this confusion? Is it a deficit in clear, logical, critical thinking? Is it a deficit in being taught how to ask questions? Those in the public sphere seem to think in stereotypes, only arguing in slogans and when confronted just shouting and proceeding to use violence..."
Once again, leftist useful idiots demonstrate their hypocrisy and utter lack of self-awareness as they dance to the politically correct 'Identity Politics' tune of their puppet-masters: projecting onto others the very racism of which they - not their targets - are themselves guilty. Amazing.
My Chat With a Critical Race Theorist (12 September 2017)
"[I]f we also take Sociology of Culture, Critical Legal Theory, Discourse Analysis, Black Studies, Post-Colonial Studies, Deconstruction, Critical Race Studies, Media Studies, Peace Studies, Subaltern Studies, Ethnic Studies, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Queer Theory, Critical Theory... ad infinitum, we can safely say that these academic disciplines are deeply political ... these disciplines are tools to bring about 'progressive change' - not tools for discovering truth/facts ... And if we add to the fact that almost all these professors, lecturers and 'researchers' are leftwing or 'progressive' in political persuasion, then we have a massive academic bias on our hands. In fact we've had that bias since the 1960s..."
Has the Left Seized Control of the Home Office? (10 August 2017)
"The woman who is head of the National Trust and is ripping the goodwill of its volunteers from the organization by an aggressive pro-homosexuality agenda, is a fully paid-up member of the cultural Marxist elite. She was once 'permanent' head of the Home Office (which she left after a record of evasiveness and blame-shifting), and moved on to the NT and is now on her way to one of the plum jobs in the leftie pantheon, head of Balliol College, Oxford..."
An Intolerant Creed for the Ruling Progressive Elite (16 July 2017)
"We believe in one God, Ourselves, the Almighty, makers of heaven on earth, of all that is now and future. we believe in one correct ideology, Tolerance'n'Diversity, the only acceptable thought system, begotten by us after all ages (of patriarchal oppression)..."
"Any time devout disciples of Multiculturalism are confronted with an unbeliever who dares to question them and their precious faith, they will become very irate and strive to silence dissent. The preferred weapon of choice is to accuse the unbeliever of racism, the new heresy. It's a nasty yet effective thought-control weapon..."
Would American Snowflakes Prefer the Return of George III? (27 February 2017)
"A particularly deranged one of the 'ideologically correct' from refusefascism.org appeared on Fox News to denounce President Trump for following the 'Hitler's Playbook' and being a 'danger to humanity'. She demanded that the entire seven billion human population of this planet should take to the streets in protest to force Trump out of office..."
No More 'Nazi' Please (25 February 2017)
"As many of are all too aware, a young female member of the Revolutionary Communist Party named Sunsara Taylor faced off with Tucker Carlson the other night over the question of whether or not the president of the United States is a Nazi, a Fascist, and an advocate of nuclear war, a bad hairpiece, liar, and a misogynist, but principally a Nazi. An actual Nazi..."
"What a momentous year 2016 is turning out to be! First came the shock decision of the British people to leave the EU. This political earthquake was followed by Donald J. Trump's astonishing victory in the US presidential election. Both [of these events] have been met with furious outrage from the liberal left. Exasperated that people dared to reject them, offended leftists and their liberal lackeys are refusing to accept the democratic will of the people..."
The Hatefulness of Stop Funding Hate (17 November 2016)
"In possibly the most middle-class attack on the free press ever, campaign group Stop Funding Hate has made its own John Lewis-style Christmas advert, calling on big brands to boycott the Daily Mail, the Sun and the Daily Express by removing their advertising..."
Equality (17 November 2016)
"Twitter demonstrates the SJW commitment to one of the five fundamental pillars of their social justice ideology: ... [N]o-one who claims equality to be a moral principle actually believes in it. Equality is nothing more than a rhetorical weapon utilized by the Left in order to win the moral level of war..."
The Malevolent Banality of the Anti-White Left, in One Word (16 November 2016)
"The anti-White Equalist Left ... won't relent on pushing for open borders and mass nonWhite colonization of America..."
The Left-Right Paradigm and the New World Order (12 February 2016)
"The 'false-left-right paradigm' is the political theory that [though there is the appearance] of opposing political political parties (such as LibLabCon) ... in reality there is [just] one Elite class ruling over the masses, [and this is] now referred to as the 'Establishment'..."
"Our leaders are now allowing men from violent misogynistic cultures, where women are stoned to death fro being raped, to come to Europe in massive numbers. They're allowing known rapists to mingle freely with European women. They know what this will mean for our safety, but they do it anyway. ... Some have told me it is stupidity, short-sightedness, or even insanity, but it isn't - it's hatred. ... a broad-ranging, virulent, and vicious hatred of the West, and of Western people ... The reason a government ought to put its own people first gets right to the heart of nation-state democracy; the duty owed by the elected to the elector. Politicians should answer to those who elect them - it is the purpose of the vote. This is something the Left rejects of course because it rejects the freedom ... that nation-state democracy inevitably constructs, and sadly the Left is now calling the shots..."
"The rule of law is one of the most, if not the most fundamental, concept[s] in Western civilisation, and therefore in conservatism too. ... I do not believe that by acting 'magnanimously' towards the left over Bahar Mustafa's arrest for tweeting '#KillAllWhiteMen' we are going to win the debate, and win the day for free speech. The left simply does not have the intellectual capacity for that..."
Hypocrites! (11 September 2015)
"There are times when I feel as if we - especially our esteemed metro-elites in politics and the media - are fiddling while Rome burns..."
Our Favourite Far-Left Extremist (13 June 2015)
"Matthew Collins ... began his career in the National Front and Combat 18 and it's been all downhill from there: now he's a 'researcher' and Chief of Sarcasm with the far-left Hate Not Hope. He is also, predictably, a writer for The Guardian..."
Leftist Debate: Only One Voice Allowed (12 June 2015)
"Whenever you hear lefties talk about the need for open and honest debate, you can usually count on them to mean that only their point of view should be heard. It is all one-way traffic with these folks: they want to fill the airwaves and monopolise the media, and ban any dissenting viewpoints. That is the left's definition of free debate. ... The left is not interested in what the other side says or believes. ... differing views are squashed and censored..."
"In the eighties, the urgent questions were whether the country was governable by any political party of which the trade unions did not approve, and whether its economy could be rescued from state-monopoly interests..."
The Closing of the Liberal Mind (08 April 2015)
"Suppose you are a liberal in the 1950s. You don't support some gang of reds goosestepping their way across the country and rounding up people into gulags. Nor do you want any of the revolutions that some of the radicals hanging around outside NYU sometimes recite poems about. You believe that the beast pathway to a liberal society is through liberal institutions. ... But now you are aliberal in 2015 and the society is already very liberal..."
Left Wing London Hates the British People (15 December 2014)
"The British Left are on odd bunch. They all went to the same schools. They all went to the same universities. They all work in professions dominated by other liberals. This is important because we form our opinions from our social network. We also base our view and perception of the world based on what we pick up from the comments, fears and attitudes of the people around us. If that social world is only filled with people who believe what you believe, it can often mean you misread the way the world is going..."
Paedophiles Are Just One of the Left's Unacceptable Bedfellows (26 February 2014)
"It's curious that the story about the National Council for Civil Liberties and its links with the Paedophile Information Exchange is big news now, since it's been common knowledge for many years..."
Leftists Become Incandescent When Reminded of the Socialist Roots of Nazism (25 February 2014)
"Goebbels never doubted that he was a socialist. He understood Nazism to be a better and more plausible form of socialism than that propagated by Lenin. Instead of spreading itself across different nations, it would operate within the unit of the Volk. So total is the cultural victory of the modern Left that ... merely to recount this fact is jarring..."
How the Liberal West Has Lost the Plot (17 December 2013)
"Anyone seeking evidence of how the western mind is snapping shut and how insult is steadily replacing evidence and reason need only watch this instructive altercation on BBC TV's Newsnight last night..."

The Mindset of the Left: Parts I - IV (02 July 2013)
"At least as far back as the 18th century, the left has struggled to avoid facing the plain fact of evil - that some people simply choose to do things that they know to be wrong when they do them. Every kind of excuse, from poverty to an unhappy childhood, is used by the left to explain and excuse evil ... The political left has long claimed the role of protector of 'the poor'. It is one of their central moral claims to political power. But how valid is this claim? ... The fundamental problem of the political left seems to be that the real world does not fit their preconceptions. Therefore they see the real world as what is wrong, and what needs to be changed, since apparently their preconceptions cannot be wrong ... At the heart of the left's vision of the world is the implicit assumption that high-minded third parties like themselves can make better decisions for other people than those people can make for themselves..."

Margaret: Death of A Revolutionary (12 April 2013)
"The reason the Left hates Thatcher so much is that she stole the working class from them. And she was able to do this because she understood and shared their aspirations..."
Not Just Politics... (09 April 2013)
"Political ideology can drive the masses to do horrific things. Just look at how ideology drove the Germans to slaughter millions and demonise the Jews. Look at how Marxism resulted in the Gulag and the death of tens of millions of people. Look at how wild, frenzied, politicised crowds can unleash such great evil. But I must insist that political ideology alone cannot explain all this..."
Clear Thinking on Islam and the Left (13 February 2013)
"[T]he political left in the West has time and time again sided with America's totalitarian enemies, most often of late, the Islamic totalitarians. There is a strange alliance between the secular left and militant Islam. Both, it seems, hate America and the West enough to be willing to join forces, at least temporarily. Thus Western lefties become radical Islam's 'useful idiots'..."
Police State Progressives: Liberalism Learns to Love the Jackboot (30 December 2012)
"I must admit I've always had a bit of trouble believing that today's 'liberals' or 'progressives' would ever clamor for totalitarian state. ... The hippie Boomer mentality that has dominated American culture and politics for the last generation has always been so anti-authoritarian that it seemed unlikely t me that today's 'liberals' would ever openly support a police state. But then, maybe I've just absorbed too much of their projection..."
Witless for the Prosecution (08 October 2012)
"In lieu of having arguments, the American Left like to pass around little cartoons and funny, thought-provoking pictures on their blogs and Facebook pages. ... Here's two of my recent favourites..."
A Primer on Leftism (03 October 2012)
"OK, by now most of you would have gathered that I am more or less on the conservative side of the political spectrum. But as I have written in the story of my conversion, I was not always that way. Indeed, I was very much part of the radical left in my early days. ... Although a bit on the funny side, [the following 25 characteristics of the leftist] nonetheless feature a hard core of truth..."
The Far Left Controls Britain (27 September 2012)
"It seems amazing that anyone can believe that Islam is a religion of tolerance, let alone peace. or that the education standard in our country has improved. Or that today criminals actually fear legal punishment. Or that the liberal policies which assault and dissolve the institution of marriage are improving anyone's lives. Yet the Far Left that are currently in power will have you believe this and more..."

The Progressive / Traditionalist War (18 June 2012)
"The main weapon that progressives wield against traditionalists is their ability to break down the values that make up their worldview by challenging norms of behavior and thought, with the goal of using cultural friction to slowly replace traditional values and mores with their own..."
Happy Clappy Leftists, or More Leftist Claptrap? (11 April 2012)
"'All leftists come after your liberty, but each leftist comes after your liberty in his own way'. The approach of choice this month is a 'World Happiness Report' from the Earth Institute..."
The Appropriation of Liberality by the Left (22 September 2011)
"Liberalism is an admirable political meme both in practise and aspiration, especially if taken at its most essential as a commitment to openness in ideas, speech and action, ... reduction to these simpler dimensions begs the question of why political comment in the Western mainstream media is imbued with the acceptance that liberality is the preserve of the Left..."
What is Malsi-Tung? (No Date. Possibly 2011)
"The nature of this mentality is very difficult to pin down. It is the product of many different social currents: liberalism; social liberalism; socialism; Christianity in its more non-conformist manifestations; Marxism; Progressivism; Political Correctness. People are committed in varying degrees to the features of this mentality: some are strongly committed to the conflict perspective of Marxism or socialism; some to the altruistic tendencies of Christianity; some have a vague sense that liberal thinking, especially social liberalism and welfarism, reflect more positively on their moral character; some are just against their own society for whatever reason. In many cases, people adopt these attitudes at second or third hand, falling into the soft embrace of moral relativism and tolerance of everything a kind of moral laissez-faire. Others have been infected during their attendance of university: post-modernism, the various 'Studies' programmes which are nothing if not ideologically based..."
The Left Drinks Itself to Death. Again... (22 December 2010)
"[M]oralists by nature, bureaucrats by inclination and tyrants by inevitability. On paper they scribble governments of theories, but when they are forced to govern people, they no sooner encounter a setback than they reach for the whip. ... it never learns from history. It improves its tactics, but never its worldview..."
Why the Left Hates Democracy (21 August 2010)
"Democratic governments derive their legitimacy from popular support in direct elections. Non-Democratic governments derive their legitimacy from a 'special duty' to protect the country as embodied by a particular racial or economic group, in accordance with a set of overriding values..."
Questioning the Sanity of Liberals (03 April 2007)

The Motivations of Political Leftists (20 June 2006)
"What appears below is an attempt to analyse most aspects of Leftist political thinking and display the psychological and sociological roots of such thinking in an historical context..."
"Like Whittaker Chambers before him, David Horowitz must have thought he was abandoning the winning side for the losing side, when he embraced conservatism. Chambers left Communism for Christianity, at a time when, in the eyes of many, it was not expedient for him to do so. So too, Horowitz, a leading leftwing intellectual of the 60s and 70s, had second thoughts. For both men, the change of thinking was costly, with severe reactions to their defections..."
Useful Idiots (01 September 2000)
"Lenin is supposed to have referred to blind defenders and apologists for the Soviet Union in the Western democracies as 'useful idiots'. Yet even Lenin might have been surprised at how far these useful idiots would carry their partisanship in later years - including our own times..."

Useful Idiot (No Date: Periodically Updated)
"In political jargon, useful idiot is a term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause. ... The use of the term in political discourse ... [is] especially [used of] those who are seen to unwittingly support a malignant cause which they naively believe to be a force for good..."

YOUTUBE: Interview with Paul Weston of Liberty GB (04/07 October 2017)
Comments from viewers: "Thank you Simon and Paul for speaking out" / "Fantastic discussion" / "Keep up the good work guys" / "A ship is sailing towards an iceberg, those on the bridge deny the danger and you know what will eventuate in the collision. Do you storm the bridge, take the helm and steer a course to save the trusting souls that put their faith in incompetent officers, or do you launch a lifeboat early and sail off knowing the destruction that will overtake so many lives on the vessel?" / "Liberty GB have shown that they are in this fight for the long haul. Paul's deep understanding of the cultural context of the problems we face comes out clearly in this discussion. It marks him out as miles/years ahead of other political leaders - bar none"

YOUTUBE: Britain's Cultural Problem (07 November 2014)
"When people come together for a common purpose, so to speak, it can make a big difference to community cohesion; and recently, in several English towns, we've seen particular cohesion, if we can call it that, between members of the Pakistani Muslim adult male community and the white female child community, thanks largely to the co-operation of the police and social services and especially the Labour Party, who've been very pro-active in helping to facilitate this cultural connection. Safe to say that without their vital contribution it simply couldn't have happened..."
YOUTUBE: There's No Racist Like A Liberal Racist (18 October 2013)
"One of the few certainties in this life is that if you criticise the Religion of Special Needs you will be called a racist, by people who know perfectly well that you're not, but who don't care. These people are called 'progressives'. ... Now, personally I can stand being called ugly names by people whose opinions I don't respect, but it must be hard for victims of genuine racism to see such an important word soiled and devalued like this. But that is the 'progressive' way. We know that 'progressives' occupy the moral highground where the end always justifies the means, and, as they've shown us time and again, there is literally no limit to how low they're prepared to sink in asserting their lofty moral superiority - no lie is too great, no slur too egregious, and if not for double standards, they wouldn't have any standards. ... There's no point in arguing with them about definitions, because we know they're not remotely interested in whether the word is appropriate; only in whether it will stick, and in how much damage it will do. In 'progressive' hands, the word 'racist' has become the verbal equivalent of a chemical weapon or a dum-dum bullet; used spitefully, disproportionately, as a first resort, and without the slightest justification. To summarise the 'progressive' position - without the juvenile insults:..."
YOUTUBE: The Truth is Incorrect (20 April 2013)
"'Progressive' doesn't mean what you think it means."
The following extract is taken from the article: The Left-Right Paradigm and the New World Order
"On the Right: we have faux-Conservatives - nothing more than Crony Capitalists/Corporatists. The 'Conservatives' represent big business, especially Globalist interests; the military industrial complex; the finance industry; aristocratic and old wealth (eg the Rothschilds); and foreign billionaires.
"They represent controlling and subjugating the masses, and preserving power in the hands of a small corrupt supranational elite.
"On the Left: we have faux-Liberals - nothing more than Cultural Marxists who have long since destroyed Classical Liberalism. The 'Liberals' represent all totalitarian and unelected bodies of power and sources of wealth and micro-management and control of people through the Unions; the EUSSR; ever-enlarging NGOs, Charities, and Voluntary sector; and ever-increasing Government at every level.
"They represent controlling and subjugating the masses, and preserving power in the hands of a small corrupt supranational elite.
"The Left-Right paradigm makes less and less sense ... It is controlled and given to us by academia, which has been almost completely controlled for generations by Leftist leaning academics, who give us a spectrum which they say has on the Far Right: monarchies, oligarchies, crony capitalists, radical Islam, Christian Fundamentalists, Neo-Nazis, and Fascists of all stripes... but on the Far Left: Communism... It seems somewhat unbalanced. All those listed as 'Far Right' seem very different to one another.
"A better way to understand it is that it is not simply a Left-Right scale, but ... also an Up-Down scale: It is Collectivism verses Individualism. Or, Big State verses Small Government. It can mean believing that the State knows best and has a right to tell you what to do and interfere in your life verses believing that the ultimate way of determining how successful a country is is by how small the Government can be whilst still maintaining or increasing the same standard of living. See here"
The Real Left-Right Paradigm
Far-Left <-- Left <-- Less Freedom <-- Government Power | Individual Liberty --> More Freedom --> Right --> Far-Right
Communism/Nazism/Fascism/Marxism <-- Socialism <-- Liberalism/Progressivism <-- Centrism (aka Populism) --> Conservativism --> Libertarianism --> Anarchism
"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;
