The Story that Must Be Told, pt 3: Marx DOES Matter — Sort Of

Written by Clark Howell on July 2, 2013


Every week brings a new Obama Administration scandal or outrage for us to try and make sense of. But, you can’t make sense out of seemingly senseless acts until you begin to understand what motivates these people to do the things that they do. Only then can you begin to figure out how to recognize the strategy and tactics of the Marxists who now control so many aspects of our lives.

When last we left our Marxist heroes (the Bolsheviks in 1917’s Russia) they had just taken over Russia, murdered most of their political opponents, and had thrown the rest in jail. They then convened a meeting of the greatest Marxist thinkers of the time to try and figure out why Europeans, during the violent upheaval of WWI, did not rise up in fervor of Marxist enthusiasm and install Communist governments in every capital of Europe. What had gone wrong?

To answer that question a group of Marxists established The Frankfurt School (under the guise of a German Social Institute) in order to explore the question and supply the world with answers.

The thinking went like this: If Germany and the other Western countries would not succumb to violent revolutionary overthrow, why not make these countries rot from the inside-out?

The school would – secretly — dedicate itself to the study of Marxism, and later to neo-Marxism, coupled with neo-Freudianism. Freud’s study of human sexuality, as it turns out, would be one of the primary drivers in their research, and the culmination of their work would come to be known as Cultural Marxism, the driving force behind.

In his book Cry Havoc, Ralph de Toledano explains why neo-Freudianism was so important to the members of the Frankfurt School. “One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud’s idea of ‘pansexualism’ – the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:

• abolish differences in the education of boys and girls
• abolish all forms of male dominance — hence the presence of women in the armed forces
• declare women to be an “oppressed class” and men as their “oppressors”

De Toledano goes on: The “core” of the Frankfurt’s School’s “Marxist” philosophy, “was neo-Freudianism, coupled to a Pavlovian strategy, augmented by practices of brain-washing and indoctrination through manipulation of the mass media.”

Why sex? Freudianism recognized that the sexual factor in the psyche could be a devastating force, threatening not only the individual but society as a whole.
