Not many of us would argue the fact that Americans have become used to living in an atmosphere filled with disappointment, immorality, victimization, and distrust. TV, Movies, Books, Plays, News, Public Education. They have all been tainted. As each new piece of entertainment becomes more outrageous than the last, our schools rewrite history attacking our heroes and mocking the old ideals. The result is apathy. We feel powerless to rise up and make real changes. But, the real source of the apathy is our not knowing the true source of our predicament. We are living in a kind of social depression that affects every aspect of our lives.
It is not due to Conservatism, and it is not due to Liberalism. America has been duped by a planned, societal virus that came to America in 1933 during World War II. The terms ‘Cultural Marxism’ and ‘critical theory’ were concepts developed by a group of German intellectuals in 1923 in Germany. They founded the Institute of Social Research at Frankfurt University, which was modeled after the Marx-Engels Institute in Moscow, and later became known as the Frankfurt School. In 1933, when the Nazis came to power in Germany, the members of the Frankfurt School fled to the United States. They migrated to major U.S. universities including Columbia, Princeton, Brandeis, and California at Berkeley. These intellectual Marxists included Herbert Marcuse, who coined the phrase, ‘make love, not war,’ during the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations.
Similar to a computer virus that causes performance problems and destroys data files, these Marxist conspirators gave our society an ideological virus that altered our thinking. Their goal was the destruction of Western Culture that would give rise to Marxism.
Unfortunately for Conservatives, the ideals of the Frankfort School, Critical Theory, and Cultural Marxism tend to appeal to Liberals. Without us noticing, Critical Theory permeated Hollywood and our public school system. As Conservatives finally did start to notice, it was almost too late. Hollywood and public education have set up what they think are very high walls protecting them from change. But, they will soon learn that change comes to all things.
