Marxism | Critical Theory

I think one of the main venues that Marxism is being taught in academia is via the "Critical Theory" category. They hide the buzzwords like "marxism", "socialism" etc... from some of the academic major titles and descriptions, but it's all related.

I noticed UC Berkeley said this on its page describing their "Designated Emphasis in Critical Theory" PHD program facet: http://guide.berkeley.edu/graduate/degree-programs/critical-theory/
Critical theory is often associated with the Frankfurt School, a group of intellectuals who, starting in the 1920s, developed critiques of modern capitalist society, fascism, and the new global dispensations that followed in the aftermath of World War II. In doing so, the Frankfurt School constructed modes of social theory distinct from established forms of philosophy.


When I read that, I smelled it as a roundabout way to say marxism. Sure enough, when you read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outline_of_critical_theory you get this list of branches:

African-American Studies
Gender studies
Marxist theory
Postcolonialism
Structuralism
Post-structuralism
Deconstruction
Postmodernism
Reconstructivism
Psychoanalytic theory
Queer theory
Semiotics
Cultural anthropology
Theories of identity
Linguistical theories of literature


I don't know how the hell you stop this train before it wrecks itself if it's being glorified and taught in college to the next generation.

This is another heavily Gaslit subject.

Constant Snopes, WaPo, Leftist websites, and other "fact checkers" have gone so far as to deny the existence of the Frankfurt School or claim it's totally irrelevant.

Marcuse was the classroom professor for many "Shakurs" and some Weathermen.

The commies try to hide the true nature of this by claiming that Cultural Marxism is a conspiracy theory and also tries to smear it with terms like "anti-semetic", "white supremacist", and other Leftist feces.

I've seen this movie before, the weaker trouble makers end up in the lime pits.
Then future liberals will call an atrocity and genocide.

But the Liberals today, has shown without a doubt, that 90% of those that ended up wiped out, was probably because they kept steering trouble, they were volatile and unstable to leave unchecked.

People like these you can either get them first, or wait until they get you, but one side or the other has to be put to bed.

I'm sure we've been lied to about 90% of the instances. The French Revolution should have been put down, that was years in the making, and lots of trouble makers. That just didn't happen over night. And because the holy alliance was defensive and not offensive. The allowed the Bolsheviks, to pull the trigger first. Due to their inaction we have Communism in all of its forms, and 100's of millions of people since the birth of Communism has been killed by them.

The Squeaky Bird get's the Oil.

Those who you use for subversion (useful idiots) are those who you first liquidate because they are not worthy to wield power. Antifa and BLM and Trannies'R'Us etc. are Progressive Toilet Paper. Continue to let them think that there will be a place at the central planning table, so that we know where to round them up when their usefulness has ended.

Obviously, examining clear documented history of Communism isn't the strong suit of the useful idiots.

Actuallly, if you want to stop the antifa BLM movement, you just have to cut off the free money. It will force them to go get jobs and occupy themselves.

Critical theory or thought is just Orwellian newspeak for Marxism.

Its just a way to fool the masses by calling Marxism a more clever name.

Why has he ever created anything?

Nooooo

All copies


Actually, he is creating, and adding value.

He's a curator. He produces a focused list, which filters out noise. He spends the time finding the memes, so others don't need to. His product is targeted towards an intentional, specific audience. He likely uses feedback to improve his product.

Commies just cant see this stuff.

How about you try going to college and get an education before you start evangelizing against higher education


Evangelizing against higher ed? I'm against sneaky subversive efforts to inject Marxism into higher education.

And YOU tell ME to get an education? Improve your reading comprehension.

I probably hold more college degrees, honors, and awards than you anyway. I don't usually bring up my academic achievements because my experience is the people who tout that stuff tend to be people who did well in college, and then face palmed into the pavement after, working their barista job and claiming they want things to be that way because they reject real jobs due to "virtue". So, they brag about college and try to exaggerate it's importance.

I have noticed that those who brag about college are those with the useless easy majors. They resent anyone asking "what is your degree in" as though the do not want to admit what they "studied" and one should just accept that any college degree denotes high intellect.
