Today’s left is, in substantial part Cultural Marxism from the Frankfurt School. Should you conclude that the Frankfurt School is really really important?
If you conclude that Cultural Marxism is really really important and rules the world, it follows that Jews rule the world. Hard to prove they don’t. It also follows that leftism was just fine and democracy was just fine all the way up to and including the New Deal, and if we could revive the New Deal coalition and get rid of the Jews everything would be lovely.
If you believe that the Cultural Marxism is the problem rather than a problem, it follows that getting rid of Jews would solve the problem. Hard to prove that getting rid of Jews would not solve the problem. In the course of my many arguments with my Jewish commenter B, I have endorsed pretty much everything that /pol/ and Steve Sailer says about Jews, other than that they rule the world and are responsible for every bad thing everywhere that ever happened anywhere. And B has mostly agreed, because we both agree that reform Jews are a problem, though not the problem, and Orthodox Jews have resisted the rot better than most. We just disagree as to what extent Orthodox Jews have resisted the rot, and to what extent they will continue to resist the rot.
But it is pretty easy to prove that democracy was not just fine and the New Deal was not just fine.
From the day that Cromwell cracked down on those to his left in 1653, the predecessors of today’s regnant left were fleeing, or being expelled, to America, and, in America, were plotting to conquer America, reconquer England, and conquer the world. To this end, they founded Harvard, which was from the beginning the center of their conspiracy. And none of them were Jews.
As they became increasingly successful, obtained worldly power, they increasingly came to compete with each other for superior holiness, each holier than each of the others. And pretty soon became holier than Jesus. Being holier than Jesus, swiftly became unitarians, then atheists, then extremely militant atheists hostile to the parent religion from which their heresy sprung.
It was not the Jews that gave us prohibition, female emancipation, and the war between the states, though they eagerly attached themselves to those movements once those movements had already succeeded.
British Imperialism was an anti colonialist movement, the disastrous predecessor of today’s even more disastrous anti colonialism, and as one can trace modern leftism back through super protestantism to the prohibitionists and the emancipators, one can trace modern anti colonialism through the London School of Economics to British imperialism. In the 1830s or thereabouts, the British government gradually came to notice that the colonialists had conquered an empire. The colonialists were initially merchant adventurers, meaning they engaged in a bit of trade and a bit of piracy, were initially mobile bandits. Being successful mobile bandits, they had, without anyone quite noticing, transitioned to being successful stationary bandits. They had come to rule, and rule well. The British government decided to shoulder the white man’s burden, to rule for the greater good of the poor victimized natives who were being oppressed by these evil piratical colonialist bandits. The result was, unsurprisingly, extremely bad, and every failure convinced them to double down, which doubling down continued almost to the present day, until finally the Chinese started to step into the vacuum the anti colonialists had created. The Chinese have fixed Nigeria, and throughout Africa are remedying the destruction and horror that the anti colonialists created when they drove the colonialists out.
You are not going to be able to make any sense of Africa if you fixate on Cultural Marxism and the Frankfurt School.
The sexual revolution did not begin in the sixties. Rather, that was recovery after a retreat during the war and postwar period, during which the left had focused on the proletariat rather than female emancipation, an unsuccessful attempt to move towards socialism, an attempt that was largely the result of Jewish influence. This failed effort to move left towards command socialism gave breathing room for marriage to make a partial and temporary recovery. It gave the left something to do other than double down on destroying marriage. The sexual revolution began in Victorian times. And you cannot blame the Jews for either Victorian original, or its sixties rebirth.
If you want to blame Jews for the sixties sexual revolution, you are going to focus on Margaret Meade’s mentor. But Margaret Meade herself was the protestant descended left, and we can tell who had the power by whom Margaret Meade fucked. She was the protestant descended left, by blood, by culture and by upbringing descended from the prohibitionists and the emancipationists, and was fucking the protestant descended left.
The eighteenth century view of women was that they were the uncontrollably lustful sex, that given half a chance they would crawl nine miles over broken glass to have sex with their demon lover. In the Victorian era, this was replaced by the doctrine that women were naturally pure and chaste, except that evil lecherous men forced their vile lusts upon them. This resulted in the abrupt removal of eighteenth century controls on female misbehavior. Women, such as the protagonist of “Pride and Prejudice” were allowed to be “out” while fertile age and single, giving them every opportunity for twentieth century style misbehavior. The evidence produced in the case of the divorce of Queen Caroline suggests that they did in fact misbehave, but, lacking cameras everywhere, it was possible to get away with denying this fact. Queen Caroline attended a ball naked from the waist up, and returned to her hotel with someone she met at the ball, but the official truth remained that she was a chaste woman cruelly mistreated by her lecherous and philandering husband. In view of what Queen Caroline got up to and got away with, and in view of the lack of controls on the protagonist of “Pride and Prejudice”, who at one point was in a cottage by herself visited by male love interests, we may suppose a covert sexual revolution in Victorian times, going public in 1910, in part because cameras were getting usable.
Queen Caroline getting sainted despite fucking around indiscriminately predates the Frankfurt School by quite a bit.
Forget about Cultural Marxism. Remember the divorce of Queen Caroline.
The problem with getting rid of Jews is not that it is rough on Jews. The solutions I propose are likely to be rough on lots of people. The problem with getting rid of Jews is that you wind up with socialism. If the Frankfurt School is the root of all evil, then the New Deal is just peachy.
The problem is not that “Frankfurt School” is the way that smart people say “Get rid of the Jews”. The problem is that “Frankfurt School” is the way smart people say “Let us have socialism”.
