What About Cultural Marxism?

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn

Submitted by William Woodford (United States), Nov 15, 2006 at 10:45

This review fails to mention an obvious factor in the upcoming demise of Europe: cultural Marxism. Originated by the Frankfurt School in Weimar Germany, cultural Marxism seeks to destroy traditional Western culture in order to birth a socialist utopia. It has succeeded far too well in undermining Western Civilization, but its result will be a new Dark Age of medieval Islamic barbarism.

Cultural Marxism has made significant inroads in America as well, we just aren't as far along the path as Europe or Canada.

The worst part of this is that the Nazis' claim to be defending Western Civilization was based, in part, on its rejection of cultural Marxism. If Europe goes under as Mr. Steyn predicts, it will be a vindication of Hitler.
