In a Daily Telegraph online article entitled, The Left’s long march will be hard to stop, Janet Daley reveals the machinations of cultural marxism in the UK. The common purpose of cultural marxism is explained. Finally.
Well done, Janet. Here is a snippet of what she has to say about the Left’s strategy when appearing on the BBC’s, Question Time programme:
“The only solution to this was to invade the areas of life that were most directly responsible for opinion-forming and the bending of minds: to “work from within”, as we used to say, to alter the consciousness of the masses, who would then be made to see the reality of their own situation and become more receptive to the message of revolution. I had dozens of comrades on the New Left who became union officials, broadcasters, teachers and lecturers (the old polytechnics were full of such people) with this explicit motivation.”
“This is precisely what Left-wing activists in BBC Question Time audiences do, by the way. Whenever I’ve been on the panel, I have been struck by it. The audience is not, as the folks at home often think, overwhelmingly on the Left: it is just that the Leftist groupies have positioned themselves around the room and are causing enough ruckus to intimidate those who disagree with them. The producers of this hapless programme always claim that they screen out activists with their advance audience questionnaires. So let me tell you something else about committed political agitators: they tell lies. And they do that – I mean this quite charitably – with the most honourable intentions.”
In many, many political debates some good people have decided that no such thing exists. That cultural marxism is a figment of the imagination. Well, if you think this, think again. The three wise monkeys have had their day.
