Cultural Marxism Is an Oxymoron

Written by Gary North on July 1, 2014

A specter is haunting American conservatism. It is the specter of cultural Marxism. Specter: 1. a visible incorporeal spirit, especially one of a terrifying nature; ghost; phantom; apparition. 2. some object or source of terror or dread: the specter of disease or famine.

This fact was revealed in the Washington Post. It indicates that the National Security Agency has been authorized by the court in charge of the NSA to spy on 193 nations. There are more than 193?

I don’t think dramas initiate social change, but they certainly reinforce it. The only work of fiction that I can think of in American history that visibly changed society was Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. But it was a literary adaptation of an idea that was spreading rapidly: abolitionism. It reinforced an existing […]

One hundred years ago the world was shook loose of its moorings. Every schoolboy knows that the assassination of the archduke of Austria at Sarajevo was the trigger that incited the bloody, destructive conflagration of the world’s nations known as the Great War.

I recently read an article on the Left-wing website in Great Britain, The Guardian. This has been the most consistently Left-wing publication in Great Britain. It was part of the organized Left as early as the 1920′s, and it has never varied in the slightest. The author interviewed a former American spy. The spy is […]

Two Presidents have been impeached: Andrew Johnson and Clinton. Neither was convicted by the Senate, although Johnson won by only one vote. It would be a waste of rime to try to impeach Obama. The main case for this would be that Congress would waste a lot of time. There is a good case for […]

What ever happened to the right to hire and fire? Gone. A 64-year-old live-in nanny refuses to leave. The family that hired her cannot get her evicted. The police say it’s a civil matter. “You’re on your own!” She threatens to sue. On what grounds? Age discrimination. She eats for free. She has a place […]
