While everyone seems to bemoan the choice we are facing between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, have you ever wondered how we got here? That appears to have everything to do with the Frankfort School. If you haven’t heard of it, you are not the only one. But what hope do we have of reversing the decline that has brought us here if we don’t know what’s driving it?
In The Birth Of Cultural Marxism: How The “Frankfurt School” Changed America, David Galland asks the question, “what happened to the American traits of confidence, pride, and accountability?” And he answers, “it is at the feet of the Frankfurt School that we can lay much of the blame for setting the modern world culturally adrift.” In a more formal synopsis, he says:
The roots of Western cultural decay are very deep, having first sprouted a century ago. It began with a loose clan of ideologues inside Europe’s communist movement. Today, it is known as the Frankfurt School, and its ideals have perverted American society.
Birth of Cultural Marxism
Galland says that modern Marxist strategy for infiltrating and overturning the capitalist West was largely shaped in the years before word war I, by Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs.
Each man, on his own, concluded that the working class of Europe had been blinded by the success of Western democracy and capitalism. They reasoned that until both had been destroyed, a communist revolution was not possible.
But when world war broke out instead of revolution by the proletariat, things needed to be rethought. Here is how the Marxist revolutionary effort re-started.
All was quiet on the Marxist front until 1923 when the cultural terrorist (Lukacs) turned up for a “Marxist study week” in Frankfurt, Germany. There, Lukács met a young, wealthy Marxist named Felix Weil. … Weil was enthused by Lukács’ cultural angle on Marxism (and funded) a new Marxist think tank—the Institute for Social Research.
This came to be known as The Frankfurt School.
In 1930, the school changed course under new director Max Horkheimer. The team began mixing the ideas of Sigmund Freud with those of Marx, and cultural Marxism was born. … The new theory was that everyone in society was psychologically oppressed by the institutions of Western culture.
But when fascism arose in Germany, the school had to move.
As fate would have it, the National Socialists came to power in Germany in 1933. It was a bad time and place to be a Jewish Marxist, as most of the school’s faculty was. So, the school moved to New York City, the bastion of Western culture at the time. … In 1934, the school was reborn at Columbia University. Its members began to exert their ideas on American culture.
The rest, as they say, is history. It is the history of how America changed during the 20th century culturally, socially, and politically. It is likely the history of why you think and feel the way you do if you were born in America and raised in its mainstream culture. It is not just that you have been influenced by the social mores of our time. It is not that you have been emancipated by the enlightened progress of human thought. You have been manipulated.
