Confessions of a student Marxist

Sep 17, 2020 by

by Tobias Phibbs, UnHerd: It is hard not to conclude that a whole generation has been terribly misled about how best to pursue a life of meaning and resilience After a long, eerie summer, the students are returning to campus. The neuroses that so often characterise this period will be intensified: UCU hysterically threatens 50,000 extra deaths from an uncontrolled return to university life; the lack of school exams will increase self-doubt and suspicion; and the promise of a bright future for...

Why Karl Marx Hated God, and Marxists Hate Christians

Sep 16, 2020 by

Part 1 of an interview with scholar Paul Kengor.  The Stream: A movement led by “trained Marxists,” Black Lives Matter, now dominates the headlines, and thugs fighting in its name control several U.S. cities. So we need to understand Marx. Was he an idealist? A lover of the poor? A brilliant economist? A ‘man for others’?

Social Justice, Critical Race Theory, Marxism, and Biblical Ethics

Jul 7, 2020 by

by Kelly Hamren, Christianity Today: During the weeks following the death of George Floyd, I have been following the news with an increasing sense of sadness and concern for the problems facing the United States regarding race and racism. I’ve been unsure how to respond as I’ve scrolled through social media and watched increasingly polarized rhetoric on both sides of the political aisle—except to listen to the voices of Black friends and neighbors who are hurting and to pray for justice. I’ve...

Black Lives Matter: “We Are Trained Marxists” – Part I

Jul 2, 2020 by

by Soeren Kern, Gatestone Institute: A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that more than two-thirds of Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement. The high level of backing raises the question of how much the public knows about BLM. On the surface, BLM presents itself as a grassroots movement dedicated to the noble tasks of fighting racism and police brutality. A deeper dive shows that BLM is a Marxist revolutionary movement aimed at transforming the United States — and the...
