Gramsci, Cultural Marxism and the cost of dismantling the natural family

Nov 7, 2019 by

by Roger Kiska, Christian Legal Centre: The emergence of identity politics in Western Europe has come swiftly and aggressively. Identity politics, in essence, politicises and priorities certain ‘minority’ characteristics such as race, class, sexual orientation and religion; weaponising them against traditional norms. While many attribute this phenomenon to the ideology of intersectionality (a philosophy which likewise tribalises people using these same labels by suggesting that culturally...

How did the world lose its marbles?

Sep 3, 2019 by

by Douglas Murray, Mailonline: A new dogma has turned beliefs that once seemed common sense into hate crimes. If you say the ‘wrong thing’, you’ll be thrown to the wolves… We are going through a great mass derangement. In public and in private, people are behaving in ways that are increasingly irrational, feverish, herd-like and unpleasant. The news is filled with the consequences. Yet while we see the symptoms everywhere, we don’t see the causes. Various explanations...

The Dangerous Stalinism of the “Woke” Hard-Left

Aug 31, 2019 by

by Alan M. Dershowitz, Gatestone Institute: Civil liberties are in greater danger today from the intolerant hard-left than from the bigoted hard-right. This may seem counterintuitive: There has been far more violence — mass shootings in malls, synagogues and other soft targets — from extremists who identify more with the hard-right than with the hard-left. But the influence of the hard-left on our future leaders is far more pervasive, insidious and dangerous than the influence of the...

A Nationalist Case for Slavery Reparations

Jul 1, 2019 by

by John Zmirak, The Stream: A false religion is abroad in the land. It threatens to wreck our country, erase our borders and replace Christian faith in our churches.

Its dangerous principles are infusing new legislation. It must be stopped. I speak of intersectionalism. Put briefly and bluntly, it’s Marxism rebranded. As it turned...

The incompatibility of Critical Theory and Christianity

May 20, 2019 by

By Neil Shenvi, The Gospel Coalition. Over the last few years, new terms like “cisgender,” “intersectionality,” “heteronormativity,” “centering,” and “white fragility” have suddenly entered our cultural lexicon—seemingly out of nowhere. In reality, these words and concepts have been working their way through academia for decades, perpetuated by disciplines such as Post-Colonial Studies, Queer Theory, Critical Pedagogy, Whiteness Studies, and Critical Race Theory, among others. These fields can...

Should we stop talking about ‘Cultural Marxism’?

May 7, 2019 by

by Andrew Symes, Anglican Mainstream. I’m going to have a go at a simple definition of Cultural Marxism (CM). The main contention of Karl Marx was that power is controlled by a class of rich people (the bourgeoisie), who oppress the much larger class of poor people (the proletariat) and deprive them of liberty and their true humanity. A revolution is needed to overturn this situation and create a new order of equality and justice. Once this has happened, the State needs to carefully control...
