Cultural Marxism produces a bitter, angry, resentful harvest. By Martyn Iles.
I saw the cultural Marxist dogma infect the minds of kids and make them fall into an entrapment of resentment and anger. I saw its overwhelming tendency to paralyse into hopelessness; to make them stop trying, to give up, to fall back.
I saw promising young men and women going from strength to strength, improving their grades, winning awards, desiring a better life. Then, I saw them go to high school or university and hear the voices of their Marxist educators. It sapped the lifeblood, the energy, and the purpose right out of them.
And it made them angry.
I saw it destroy families, too. It took away the will of parents to break their drug habit, to pursue their wayward children, or even try to get beyond Centrelink because they believed that this was their destiny as victims of society. It’s a tragedy that keeps you up at night.
Not only that, but it gave young people excuses to do as they pleased. As victims, they were innocent. They heaped up for themselves sins and transgressions, and were driven away from the desire to repent, because they didn’t believe they needed to.
Victimhood and cultural Marxism are wicked, insidious evils. I hate them.
It is an ideology of concealed racism. It makes victims out of races and keeps people down in festering hopelessness. Its all-consuming degradation of a person’s psychology makes them into its slaves.
Karl Marx and the left, stirring deadly resentments for over a century now. And what a joyous, happy, wonderful century it’s been!
Nietzsche famously said in 1882, “God is dead”. He then more or less predicted the awfulness of the next century, as half-baked religions of the left replaced Christianity in the West. The woke religion is just the latest monstrosity.
