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]
"We will make the
West so corrupt that it stinks"
[Willi Munzenberg, The Frankfurt School]

Slavery, Foreign Aid, Redistribution of Wealth and Power
Slavery: The Inconvenient Truth (03 April 2018)
"As a father of two impressionable teenage girls, I am having a tough and at times frustrating time trying to undo the damage done at school in the course of their history studies, where they seem to be learning little about European civilisation other than that we 'palefaces' should be remembered primarily as the masters of the slave trade and as avaricious colonialists who enjoyed being beastly brutes making life miserable for Africans ... and all people of European ancestry must somehow share the guilt, including them the children. Lots of big talk about child abuse, but our progeny are victims of a pernicious form of mental cruelty aimed at inculcating a completely undeserved sense of shame..."
Slavery - How Cultural Marxists Have Rewritten Our History (24 December 2017)
"Talking about slavery at Christmas? Surely not - unless it's to bewail the fate of all kitchen salves, male, female or any of the other 78 genders slaving over that imperial beast, the turkey! No, I'm talking about how the accusation of 'slavery!' has been and is being used to keep us cowed. A series of articles appeared on Friday December 22nd 2017 in the Daily Mail, referring to an exhibition at the National Archives, a Government Institution. The first article reports:..."
Foreign Aid, and Post-Colonial Guilt Gone Mad (09 June 2015)
"In addition to misappropriating foreign aid, Africa has hit on another scam - screwing reparations from the UK government for the atrocities committed by the beastly colonials..."
Foreign Aid is Nothing To Be Proud Of, Dave (04 April 2014)
"Only last week Dave claimed that his subversive campaign for homomarriage was his proudest achievement. Now he has confused his supporters by shifting his object of pride on to foreign aid. Or rather on having kept his promise (and the UN target) to blow 0.7 percent of our GDP on fattening the Swiss bank accounts of assorted tyrants..."
Christians and Foreign Aid (18 September 2013)
"Regrettably, many Christians do not think very carefully or biblically about the important social issues of the day. At best the church often just simply slavishly follows whatever the world is thinking, and just parrots the world's nostrums instead of actually thinking biblically and discerningly about contemporary social topics. this is certainly true in the area of foreign aid..."
Slavery and 'One Drop of Blood' (18 November 2012)
"It is often assumed that slavery in the antebellum USA was driven by white vs black racism. In fact, it was, if anything, the other way round - it was slavery that exacerbated racism..."
Daniel Nasaw's Horrible History Lesson (30 September 2012)
"Daniel Nasaw is one of the handful of Beeboids working the US beat who was actually born and raised here. In his latest feature for the BBC online Magazine, a 'From Our Own Correspondent' segment, he visits a Civil War battle reenactment to use as a metaphor for a primary Narrative about the current state of US politics we hear across the spectrum of BBC broadcasting: an historic, extreme polarization. Nasaw doesn't so much get the basic relevant history bits of the Civil War wrong as he does the lesson which he's trying to invent from it..."
Time to Cast Off 'The White Man's Burden' (18 September 2012)

The New Socialism (11 December 2009)
"in the 1970s and early '80s, having seized control of the U.N. apparatus (by power of numbers), Third World countries decided to cash in. OPEC was pulling off the greatest wealth transfer from rich to poor in history. Why not them?..."
The Great Slavery Wheeze (1 April 2007)
"[Apologising for s]lavery is now very much in vogue, and demands are growing for a formal apology from Britain, and only Britain, mind you. ... All demands for apologies, all of them, are merely a prelude to the attempted extraction of hard cash..."
Christianity and Poverty (16 November 2006)
"How is the believer to think about poverty, welfare, and the best way to help the poor? Such topics are far too big to consider here, but aspects of this discussion can be briefly addressed..."
"In the BBC TV series Civilisation, professor Mary Beard decried the British love of Greek art. She said it had led to narrow Eurocentrism. According to this view, what used to be termed our 'Island Story' was a vast detour away from appreciating other cultures, steeped in blood, slavery and theft, and little else. This belief is now taught right through our educational system, from kindergarten to university, focusing on our national canon of work, from children's books to fine art..."
The Tyranny of Guilt (11 October 2010)
"I've just finished reading The Tyranny of Guilt: An Essay on Western Masochism, by French philosopher Pascal Bruckner, in which he claims that 'all of modern thought can be reduced to mechanical denunciations of the West, emphasizing the latter's hypocrisy, violence, and abomination.' He shows how Europeans see themselves as 'the sick man of the planet' whose pestilence causes every problem in the non-Western world..."
Nelson Mandela: The Che Guevara of Africa (09 December 2013)
"To some extent, Mandela's legend has been nourished - even created - by sentimental Westerners. The measure of the man whom Oprah Winfrey and supermodel Naomi Campbell have taken to calling 'Madiba' - Mandela's African honorific; Winfrey and Campbell's, African affectation - has been determined by the soggy sentimentality of our MTV-coated culture. 'Madiba's' TV smile has won out over his political philosophy, founded as it is on energetic income redistribution in the Neo-Marxist tradition, on 'land reform' in the same tradition, and on ethnic animosity toward the Afrikaner..."
South Africa in the Shadows (06 December 2013)
"'People are trapped in history, and history is trapped in them', James Baldwin wrote. Few men have had as much history trapped in them as Nelson Mandela. To those outside South Africa, the country has been reduced to Nelson Mandela just as it was once reduced to apartheid..."
Mandela: White Genocide With a Whimper (05 December 2013)
"Nelson Mandela is dead, and South Africa without 'Madiba' will be much the same as it was before: a wreck of a country with slowly collapsing infrastructure, high crime, and the slow-motion genocide of Afrikaners. None of this matters much to the opinion makers of what used to be the West. For them, the true hallmark of leftist totalitarianism isn't brutality - it's kitsch, and we'll see plenty of that. Mandela will be on every magazine cover, the Internet will be drowning in sentimental schmaltz, and Facebook will be littered with sanctimonious status updates..."
Don't Mourn for Mandela (05 December 2013)
"The whole world, pretty much, is mourning for Nelson Mandela today. But most are not mourning for the real Mandela. They are, in fact, mourning for the myth of Mandela..."
Margaret Thatcher: Never Forget the Chaos of Life Before Her (14 April 2013)
"'Every separate group in the country had no feeling and no sense of being part of a community but was simply out to get for itself what it could.' As you might expect, such was the assessment of a former Labour politician. But this was not the late Peter Shore reflecting on the Britain that Margaret Thatcher created. He was talking about the Britain she inherited..."
Margaret Thatcher: Britain Was Set Free by This Class Warrior (13 April 2013)
"The radical idea of Thatcherism's social philosophy was that everyone had a right to progress. ... while [many of her reforms] were tumultuous in their significance, they could all (God help us) be reversed. ... But it would be humanly impossible to overturn the revolution in social attitudes that she brought about. And by social attitudes I mean, of course, attitudes to class. It is very difficult to explain to people under the age of 40 what this change has meant..."
"While many of her reforms fortunately live on, she can be held responsible neither for the state of today's manufacturing sector, nor for the financial crisis. To claim otherwise is to misunderstand history, her own philosophy and the nature of our present problems..."
The Greens - A Warning From History (Volume Two) (12 March 2012)
"Marxist sociologists used to assume that radical opposition to capitalism would come from below. They were constantly disappointed in the workers, of course, who seemed more interested in washing machines and cars and foreign holidays, than smashing the system. Instead we now have posh-anti-capitalism from above..."
The Greens - A Warning From History (Volume One) (04 January 2012)
"What are we to make of the morose nostalgia of the greens? Why do today's posh rebels yearn for the world as it was before capitalism? What was it about the Middle Ages that appeals to them so much?..."

"An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equaliser.
"The professor then said: 'OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.'
"After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
"The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
"When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.
"As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
"To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.

"For Conservative read Tory or Republican (right wing & capitalist). For Liberal read Democrat, Labour, Libdem or Green (left wing and socialist)."
"A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very Liberal, and among other liberal ideals was very much in favour of higher taxes to support more government programs: i.e. redistribution of wealth.
"She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harboured an evil, selfish desire to hoard wealth.
"One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more governmental programs.
"The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking her how she was doing in college.
"Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a Grade Point Average of 4.0, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.
"Her father listened and then asked: 'How is your friend Audrey doing?'
"She replied: 'Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a GPA of 2.0. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over.'
"Her wise father asked his daughter: 'Why don't you go the Dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.'
The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back: 'That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair! I've worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!'
The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently: 'Welcome to the Conservative side of the fence.'
If anyone has a better explanation of the difference between Conservative and Liberal I'm all ears."
"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;
