SFSU employee commits third degree assault on white student over "Cultural Appropriation", attempts to cut hair of student because he chose to wear dreadlocks.

And this sort of nonesense does not surprise me, folks. The divisive and poisonous tentacles of Cultural Marxism at work.


The bit where she says, "get your hands off me, don't touch me" after she grabs him and pulled him down the stairs is absolutely typical of the faux-victim complex these sorts of people try to cultivate to win sympathy and allow them to abuse others with impunity.

Marx sits up in his grave and smiles every time something like this happens.  His communist manifesto was just his way of taking his failures and responsibility for those failures out on society.  While he may of been aware of the suffering of the working class nothing in his personal life suggests he cared about their fate.

In many cases I don't believe there is a direct connection between "cultural Marxism" and Marxist philosophy.  The Marxist meme has mutated so many times it is hard to recognize an offspring of the original.  Beyond the problem of mutation there is also the prevalence of communialism as the refuge of "lost souls", the discontent, the disadvantaged, and the religious mind.  There are many self destructive cults out there and there always has been.  I would even argue that Christianity started as a eschatological cult that denounced rational politics in favor of spiritual escapism.   .

I prefer to refer to the social justice warriors as suffering from empathetic altruistic narcism.  With the decline in religious belief in part because of the scientific revolution lost souls needed a new refuge from reality.  Feminism, multiculturalism, political correctness and neo Marxism provides the type of communialism that religion once provided for those who are not fiercely independent thinkers.  One of the newer cults is Black Lives Matter which while addressing real issues has a kind of narcissistic denial of reality that is often found in religions.  What they all lack is practical solutions to complex problems.   

Many people simply can't except the nuanced nature of reality and the type of hazy grey world view  that is enlightenment.  They live in a world of absolutes divorced from responsible moderations.

One of the features of a narcissistic personality is a feeling of persecution and wallowing in victimhood or in the case of social justice warriors empathetically wallowing in the victimhood of others.  The world of empirical verification of philosophical tenets is simply not part of their consciousness.    The psychopath by contrast is simply unaware of any altruist instinct but very much aware of how to use empirical data from their environment to achieve their aims.  That is how I would characterize the opposite ends of the political spectrum, empathetic, altruistic narcissists vs psychopaths.

Agreed. He was a thoroughly selfish man who was too lazy to provide for his wife and kids (4 out of the 7 died young - horrendous even in that day). He was a lazy pondered. Self indulgent and irresponsible. The "plight" of the common folk was an emergency he imagined, and a cause that he pursued for the sake of his own diversion.

Here I must disagree. There is a direct link between classical Marxism and the school of Marxists led by agitators such as Antonio Gramsci and Herbert Marcuse who both believed that the means of Marxist revolution would need to be gradual rather than taking the form of a sudden, violent revolution. In prison, Gramsci specifically outlines this process which he calls "the march through the institutions". Both had realised that classical Marxist theories on the triumph of a violent proletarian rising had failed in every country except Russia. In the west, the ever rising standard of living and strength of existing cultural and intellectual institutions meant that such a rising had failed and that with each passing year its chances would become more remote. Another strategy would have to be found, and they indeed formulated it. I would argue that just as Maoism is "Marxism with Chinese characteristics", Cultural Marxism is Marxism with Western characteristics. In both cases, classical Marxism was evolved to better allow the basic tenets of classical Marxism to be realised in a particular environment.

That's an interesting theory. You claim that Cultural Marxism draws in these people with pathological and religious tendencies. I don't dispute that - you're right. But an important piece of the dynamic is that Marxism in all its forms (classical, cultural, and modern socialism) acts as a force multiplier for the prevalence of personality disorders in our society. Their success in destroying the strength of the family, healthy pride in one's heritage (whites taught to hate theirs, others taught to become engrossed in victimology), and a range of other factors has helped breed generations of people who are ever more psychologically unhealthy. Encouraging divorce, single motherhood, welfare culture and the self esteem movement have all wrought havoc on the development of young minds.

You see decline in religion as being a factor in these people flocking to cultural Marxist collective movements. Like your point above, I don't disagree. But I would add that cultural Marxists have likewise done their best to discredit and marginalise religious observance via critical theory. Many more people would still participate in church even with science's new role explaining the natural world - but cultural Marxists have done their best to undermine the community appeal of religion even beyond its role as an explainer of natural phenomena.

All your other point here I wholeheartedly agree with. Each of these movements is backed up with a barrage of propaganda. Nearly no one knows that the Black Lives Matter movement was founded in the image of a cop-killing terrorist who is on the FBI's most wanted list and is a fugitive in Cuba.

Quote Many people simply can't except the nuanced nature of reality and the type of hazy grey world view  that is enlightenment.  They live in a world of absolutes divorced from responsible moderations.

This is true. The human mind is naturally drawn to understanding a phenomenon as something that exists as a binary. Cultural Marxist propagandists know this, and create propaganda which prevents most issues as a false dichotomy. All of this is drawn from Hegelian philosophical ideas on how to manipulate people's opinion on how to view the world. No surprise, Marx himself was a big consumer of Hegelian philosophical writings.

Quote One of the features of a narcissistic personality is a feeling of persecution and wallowing in victimhood or in the case of social justice warriors empathetically wallowing in the victimhood of others.  The world of empirical verification of philosophical tenets is simply not part of their consciousness.    The psychopath by contrast is simply unaware of any altruist instinct but very much aware of how to use empirical data from their environment to achieve their aims.  That is how I would characterize the opposite ends of the political spectrum, empathetic, altruistic narcissists vs psychopaths.        

Your first sentence is true, though I'd identify this sort of behaviour more with histrionic personality disorder - which also features strongly in the cultural Marxist movement. The cult of victimhood is indeed strong.

Narcissists don't see the distinction between their favoured self interest and that of others. Whatever they want must automatically be for the good of everyone else because they them self are so totally amazing (in their own mind).

The sociopath knows about altruism, but merely sees it as a weakness of their opponents to be exploited for their own gain in their continual game-theory driven daily life. I've noticed that out of all the Cultural Marxist camps, sociopathic tendencies seem strongest amongst the feminists.

I've really enjoy discussing this with someone who gets it Smile

Here is a video you may find entertaining

"Political correctness is a parasitic virus of the human mind, some instantiations of which are transmitted via Ostrich Parasitic Syndrome (a disease of human reasoning that I've recently coined). The ability to create zombies has its analogous manifestations in the animal kingdom"

People are not taking these issues as seriously as I would like :-)
