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...

The weeks just before and after Easter constitute the season for Annual Meetings in parishes and congregations.

Gender Dysphoria and Children: An Endocrinologist’s Evaluation of I am Jazz

Apr 26, 2019 by

By Michael K. Laidlaw, Public Discourse: I Am Jazz contains both false information and very troubling omissions. Children who are experiencing gender dysphoria will likely be harmed by this book, as will children who do not have the condition. Recently, a group of parents asked me to review the book I Am Jazz to determine whether, from a medical point of view, it is suitable for children to read. They also asked this for the benefit of their school district, given that the topic of childhood...
