    @spacejunk: nice article. i don't agree with the conspiracy or myths part, someone is always trying to take control of others but it is most enlightening and a pretty good read. yes, anitfa can fly up a pole, it doesn't need to be mentioned every 5 seconds, they give peaceful protestors a bad name. if i would join a group i think it would be anonymous over antifa hands down. i would've loved to hear that granny say that or have her as a grandma or friend.

    how so? or at least point me in the right direction please?

    @Mel22: i feel MEL.

    @treezy z: "Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom ? Lucifer." ...think on it. gives new meaning to the terms anarchy and satanism doesn't it?!

    @TLB: wow, great read. spoke to me. i'm not socialist or communist (sorry, i like people and things being free and progressing) but if it's all the same to you i would like to share a few things.

    "Not at any time. I've never joined any organization?not even the ones I've organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it's Christianity or Marxism. One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as "that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you're right." If you don't have that, if you think you've got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated. The greatest crimes in history have been perpetrated by such religious and political and racial fanatics, from the persecutions of the Inquisition on down to Communist purges and Nazi genocide."

    "As long as the world is under the influence of a correct social order it will never fall to devastation. However, when the social order requires a lack of logic and mindless minions to survive, the devastation appears as a world of it's own."

    societal collapse - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Societal_collapse

    that's basically where i'm coming from also with what i've learned of history and how people live today.

    this article spoke to me through these (lack of better words) ethos of mine.

    PC is b.s. no matter which way i look at it today and fear is exactly how one controls other people. i have no problem with people having the freedoms they do today but when those freedoms are infringing upon my way of life and threatening to re-write the paperwork or structure of this country to fit their own needs, that to me is just as bad as those who seek to control others and make a grab for all the power. i don't mind talking to someone correctly (it's just as easy as using easy conversation) but when the idea behind why we talk this way is lost then it becomes a bigger problem imo; it's a threat of force to anyone who might disagree with another person which is the exact opposite of why i think PC is there to begin with.

    the "peasants" are always going to be less intelligent than the thinkers but that's not looking down on them. they enjoy a much simpler life and way of being; it also keeps the higher ups in check through a natural balance imo. i think the article was pretty astute at what is going on and there are somethings missing from it like how the peasants are becoming too concerned with matters that are maybe a lil hard for them to grasp as a group and even on an individual level (boy that sounds terrible and elitist but idk another way to put it for now) plus peasants seem to be wanting to live an increasing sedentary life style thinking it is filling a need for something that is surely tricking them into being enslaved easier, pulling the wool over their eyes and helping them become more complacent.

    over all i think the way the founding fathers set up this country was pretty smart. they didn't specifically plan ahead for all threats but they covered a lot of them and adjusted for those that they missed or had yet to come by giving us a fighting chance at understanding it for ourselves and adding new measure to prevent bad people from taking over. the way it ideally works is to prevent something like this from happening and yet like any other construct of human ideology it is not perfect. what would be necessary and i think this article points to it very explicitly is that the "peasants" would need to be looking one way while the power hungry are grabbing power and effectively catching us with our pants down. kinda like how a child who is afraid of needles doesn't even feel one going in for whatever reasons the doctor is deftly proficient at making it happen.

    i think people can be duped but highly unlikely and the paperwork is there as a reminder just in case. i do hope this article brings about an awareness to most that things are easier to slip by us than we think they are.

    (for some reason this didn't get posted) i think the conclusion is the best part. it pretty much describes what politics and social change is to me; a game of chess where patience, playing many moves ahead and playing against the opponent are involved. i also really liked the part about it not being too late and things can change. it's good general outlook for today's day and age.

    Contrary to what Marx believed, history is not pre-determined.- contrary to what marx believed, history is not pre-determined by humanity alone and we have less control over it than we think. - fixed that for them.

    thanks TLB

    To answer your question, this is from the article in my first post in this thread, which i got from Southern Poverty Law Centre here

    In a nutshell, the theory posits that a tiny group of Jewish philosophers who fled Germany in the 1930s and set up shop at Columbia University in New York City devised an unorthodox form of "Marxism" that took aim at American society's culture, rather than its economic system.

    The theory holds that these self-interested Jews ? the so-called "Frankfurt School" of philosophers ? planned to try to convince mainstream Americans that white ethnic pride is bad, that sexual liberation is good, and that supposedly traditional American values ? Christianity, "family values," and so on ? are reactionary and bigoted. With their core values thus subverted, the theory goes, Americans would be quick to sign on to the ideas of the far left.

    The very term, "cultural Marxism," is clearly intended to conjure up xenophobic anxieties. But can a theory like this, built on the words of long-dead intellectuals who have little discernible relevance to normal Americans' lives, really fly? As bizarre as it might sound, there is some evidence that it may. Certainly, those who are pushing the theory seem to believe that it is an important one.
    Basically it's a really far fetched theory which blames liberal ideology - and evolving social standards - on a handful of jewish communists who escaped nazi germany.
    There was a time - like, 2 or 3 years ago - when the only people that took such a theory seriously were white supremacists and neo-nazis. The mainstream acceptance of such myths is troubling to me and many others.

    oic. i read the article at the source last night and i thought that was just hearsay like rumor or some kind of filler. so hard to separate fact from fiction sometimes (guess that's why i took it as bs). will look into this frankfurt school more as it seems to be referenced to in a few things of late. thank you. (nice website btw)

    My hopes are blighted, my heart is broken, my life a burden, everything around me is sad and mournful; earth has become distasteful to me, and human voices distract me. It is mercy to let me die, for if I live I shall lose my reason and become mad.

    Trump’s line of reasoning is that would make them very smart people. I.e. how he should be rewarded for not paying taxes.

    It's arguable that an ingrained sense of duty and honor i.e. paying your taxes because everyone else has to, is a sign of intelligence, not the opposite, i.e. brazen self-interest.

    IF there were a cure for Global Warming, it would be to run it off contemporary bullshit, ideology.

    I think we should put Cultural Marxism in the highest tax-bracket as it's gonna go well on the stock market, so I heard(HERD, I meant).
