"In his new book The Death of the West,
Patrick J. Buchanan
examines the origin of what he contends is the modern decline
of America. He asserts that while Soviet style Marxism is largely
dead, our society remains enthralled by Cultural Marxism, which
is strangling our freedom, and threatening our future. This
threat to our culture and way of life accelerated to a deadly
speed with the establishment, in 1933 at Columbia University,
of the Institute for Social
Research, originally called
"The Institute for Marxism."
This institution became known as the Frankfurt School....
"The four horsemen of the
school were music critic Theodor
psychologist Erich Fromm,
sociologist Wilhelm Reich
and professor Herbert Marcuse. Their ideas,
echoing through the halls of academia and from the ink stained
hands of writers and journalists, would lead to, as Buchanan
calls it, the establishment
of today’s politically correct catechism.
"The original strategy to
destroy America, employed by the Frankfurt School, came from
Italian Communist Antonio
Gramsci who realized that
in order to achieve a Socialist victory, cultural institutions
would have to be infiltrated and subverted. Gramsci realized
that America, steeped in traditions of freedom and liberty,
would never to succumb to a frontal assault....
"The Frankfurt School would
patent the familiar 'Critical Theory' which was accurately defined
by a student as the 'essentially destructive criticism of all
the main elements of Western culture, including Christianity,
capitalism, authority, the family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality,
tradition, sexual restraint, loyalty, patriotism, nationalism,
heredity, ethnocentrism, convention, and conservatism.' Under
anything emanating from the west is to be libeled and attacked....
All blame for societal and economic ills are to be shifted to
"The saturating drumbeat of
Critical Theory would lead to 'Cultural Pessimism' which is
when a person grows to loathe the society, which nurtured him
and provided him unprecedented levels of success.... Adorno’s
thesis is that anyone imbued with middle class, conservative,
or Christian values is a racist and a fascist....
"The Frankfurt School introduced
the idea of psychological conditioning as a means of changing
the culture to fit their image.... To Adorno and his comrades,
all Americans who refused to conform to the new morality were
and in need of treatment. The Soviet Union offers a clear example
of this philosophy in action with it’s millions sent to gulags
for 'mental' maladies such as 'anti-social' attitudes....
professor Herbert Marcuse, was the pied piper of the sixties
as he fostered the development of, as Buchanan points out, 'radical
youth, feminists, black militants, homosexuals, the alienated,
the asocial, Third World revolutionaries, all the angry voices
of the persecuted ‘victims’ of the West.' .... He calls
for 'Repressive Tolerance'
which means 'intolerance against movements from the right, and
toleration of movements from the left.' When the left speaks
of tolerance, this is what they mean....
"The Frankfurt School would mainstream
the dicktat of the Moscow Central Committee laid down in 1943.
This declaration, right from the horse’s mouth, illustrates
exactly what were up against: 'Members
and front organizations must continually embarrass, discredit
and degrade our critics.
become too irritating, label them as fascist, or Nazi or anti-Semitic…The
association will, after enough repetition,
become ‘fact’ in the public
