Western Culture vs. Cultural Marxism Print E-mail
Written by Victoria Radin   

“Blessed is the nation whose G-d is the L-rd…” (Psalm 33:12)

The two religions of Judaism and Christianity created Western Culture, which is unique in comparison to other cultures of the world. Some features that set it apart from the others are: a tendency toward monogamy, a nuclear family, and marriages with mutual affection of the partners. [Consent, love, and companionship are the basis of marriages in Western Culture.] People in this category have a tendency toward individualism, representative government, and have loyalty and concern for others. They also have a greater interest in science and creativity.

The diametrical opposite of Western Culture is Cultural Marxism, a diabolic plan to breakdown and subvert Western culture in order to gain control of all mankind. Cultural Marxism has been described as a culture that seeks to destroy everything good about a society, what holds it together, what helps it to advance, and what promotes intelligence and beauty. It seeks to degenerate society and take it to a lower form where people are less intelligent, less creative, less ambitious and more animal, worshiping nature rather than G-d. Cultural Marxism teaches that everything good and moral about society is a form of oppression, claiming it seeks to free people from antiquated social traditions. It promotes Liberalism, sexual perversions, degenerate art, degenerate music, feminism, multiculturalism, and illegal drug use. In fact, one of the most prominent billionaire supporters of Cultural Marxism, for the past 20 years has put $80,000,000 into his mission to legalize Pot [Marijuana].[1]

The ultimate goal of Cultural Marxism is to breakdown the nuclear family, biblical morals, private property, all religion, and nationalism (patriotism), as well as the American Constitution that declares the Government is the servant of its People. It seeks to create a society fully dependent upon government. Cultural Marxism pursues a path to replace Individualism [which is individual freedom] with Collectivism through economic coercion. Collectivism is the practice or principle of giving a group priority over each individual in it.

 Because the term ‘Marxism’ is very unpopular in America, those seeking to promote this type of culture, describe themselves by more acceptable names: Progressive, Liberal, Leftist, and Left-Wing. Those people who fall into this category believe in Collectivism, [2]Evolution, and Socialism. Many, if not all, are Atheists.

[3]According to Author and Talk Show host, Dennis Prager, “…the most dynamic and influential religion of the past hundred years has been Leftism. Leftism has influenced the literary, academic, media, and, therefore, the political elite far more than any other religion. It has taken over Western schools from elementary through graduate. For most of that time, various incarnations of Marxism have been the dominant expressions –and motivators– of Leftism: specifically, income redistribution, material equality and socialism.” He also explains that the new passions of Leftists are feminism and environmentalism, which places the environment above the needs of man.

In order to accomplish the lofty goals of Cultural Marxism, those seeking these objectives engage in Critical Theory. Critical theory is a social theory focused on changing society as a whole by challenging established truths and beliefs. In following this teaching of the [4]Frankfurt School, adherents attempt to inculcate their ideas through public institutions, i.e. the education system, colleges, the entertainment industry, as well as the mass media (newspapers, magazines, books, television). For instance, Hitler used all these means to ‘condition’ the people to accept euthanizing and murdering those he found undesirable. Our society today uses all these means to break down the biblical morals established in Western Culture.

A Leftist politician once said, [5]“It takes a village to raise a child.” But, that is a worldview that does not acknowledge G-d. The L-rd laid upon parents the responsibility to raise their children, not a village.

“And you, fathers… bring them [your children] up in the training and admonition of the L-rd.” (Ephesians 6:4)

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Education, in its loftiest sense, is not about teaching children reading, writing and arithmetic. It is about forming character. It is about teaching children to love what is right and work to change what is wrong. For Christians this means forming a child’s character according to G-d’s Word.

It is the family unit that G-d established to be the foundation of all civilization. Parents are meant to shape the lives of their children to build a society that honors G-d’s Word. By doing so, the children, the family, society, and all civilization will benefit. When the family unit fails in its purpose, society and eventually all civilization suffers.

While colleges have been very successful in churning out social Liberals, the entertainment industry has done the most damage to society in the destruction of the traditional family, the foundation of society. For instance, movies and television portray fathers and mothers in a very negative light, instilling pessimism toward the family unit and causing audiences to view traditional families as unnecessary, boring, restrictive and unpleasant. The roles of fathers and mothers are often blurred; leaving the impression that divorce is understandable and sometimes justified. In many instances ‘single parenthood’ is admired and promoted.

Likewise, the lead characters in movies are almost always single or divorced. The females are dominant, controlling, violent or portrayed as superior to men. The men are aloof, effeminate, detached, corrupt, incompetent, or cheating. The “family” includes a least one lesbian, gay, bisexual, or feminist. These portrayals of family are grossly distorted but thoroughly serve the Cultural Marxist’s goal of breaking down the traditional family unit on an emotional level.

The News Media, on another front, promotes Political Correctness (PC), redefining words, ostensibly to protect so-called minorities, which is another social device engineered by The Frankfurt School to elevate the deviant over the normative. As a result, laws have been passed making the use of certain speech a ‘hate crime’. The Media purports to support ‘tolerance’, but only tolerates those who agree with their worldview. The Media also engages in [6]propaganda to vilify those who speak the truth or whose views differ from their own. The Third Reich engaged heavily in propaganda in order to cause the German people to eventually accept the ‘unacceptable’. Adolf Hitler admitted to engaging in propaganda.

“Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”––Adolf Hitler

Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany said the following:

“If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” “…the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Cultural Marxists have been successful in destroying Judeo-Christian morals using Critical Theory in schools through radical sex education, anti-nationalism, and ‘literature’ or a lack thereof. Everything from the fashion industry to illegal drugs has effectively de-Christianized the young and impressionable. Cultural Marxists know that it is important to their cause to ‘get to’ the children when they are young, before their parents can instill in their children Judeo-Christian values.

According to current news reports, President Barack Obama’s vision of America starts with very young children spending their time in the custody of government employees. Obama recently said the following.

[7]“I believe we [the government] should start teaching our kids at the earliest ages.”

[8]Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said, “I think that there still needs to be great understanding of what the president has put on the table is really a birth-to-five proposal, recognizing that you can’t start at 4-year-olds…We really need to start at birth…So, there will be an enhancement of home-visiting, which we know is an evidence-based strategy that helps people be good parents from the onset, helps the first and best teacher a child will ever have learn important skills…and make sure that those are quality-based programs, but also with curriculum and social and emotional skills.” Thus, the government of Obama and Sebelius seeks to be the ultimate instructor of America’s youngest children — even in their “emotional skills”.

The breakdown of the traditional family through no-fault divorce creates an economic burden by creating two households out of one. Often it produces a need for public assistance for the household that retains custody of the children. Divorce thus reduces wealth and increases dependency upon government. Since families are the backbone of society [the Middle Class], and the Middle Class is the mainstay of the economy, rampant divorce destroys the ‘Economic Engine’ of the entire country.

Cultural Marxism seeks to eliminate the Middle Class by eventually taking all their private property, taxing their incomes and re-distributing their wealth for the purposes of the Government. Cultural Marxism is a societal system that begins with Socialism, moves into Fascism, and finally concludes with Communism and Totalitarian Government, a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete submission to the State.

  • Socialism is an economic system wherein the State owns the ‘fruits’ of production, i.e. the revenues, which are taxed heavily and re-distributed from the Middle Class to others.
  • Fascism is an economic system that creates excessive debt, causing inflation, which is a hidden tax since it takes money out of the economy through higher prices to pay the excessive debt.
  • Communism is an economic system wherein the State owns ALL Capital, both the means and fruits of production.
  • The result of Socialism and Fascism is the elimination of the Middle Class and the beginning of a Totalitarian Dictatorship.

So, what will we have, a government subservient to the people as outlined in the Constitution, or a people subservient to the government? Western Culture or Cultural Marxism?

[4] Critical Theory was developed by a group of sociologists at the University of Frankfurt in Germany who referred to themselves as The Frankfurt School. It was set up by a group of Marxist intellectuals in Germany in 1923, affiliated to the University of Frankfurt and independently of the Communist Party, which has been influential in the development of Marxist theory ever since.
