Marxism is permeating itself in America’s institutions at an alarming rate. Antonio Gramsci, the Italian communist and originator of the cultural hegemony precept, identified five areas of crucial importance for Marxist ideology to subdue. They are the family, religion, mass media, law, and education. By way of the sexualization of children in America’s public school system, minors are being groomed for an acceptable level of class consciousness, according to communist principles.
Within the specific realm of what is labeled as cultural Marxism (or Neo-Marxism), the Frankfurt School produced the Critical Theory (CT) product line. This communist tenet which calls for destroying what exists so that Marxists can build what they believe has two overarching theories that directly are being applied in America and many liberal democracies around the globe. The CT-engendered political religions that are being shoved through the basic public education system are Critical Race Theory (CRT), Gender Ideology (GI), and Critical Queer Theory (CQT). It should be noted that the nation’s public library system has also been targeted and is an enabler of this indoctrination scheme.
CRT involves the racialization of everything. Except when mixed with intersectionality, a Neo-Marxist concept that is consistent with the stated policy project of the Black Lives Matter Global Network movement, CRT focuses mainly on selling the false narrative that the United States has been and continues to be irredeemably systemically racist, run by a dominant white supremacist class and thereby can only be redeemed by a full-scale dismantling of its Republic and capitalist mode of organization the economy and social relations. GI and CQT, however, concentrate exclusivity on aspects that bear on sexual attitudes and moral underpinnings.
GI is spearheading the transgender and “binary” revolution, the imposition of an anti-scientific understanding of biology, genetics, and natural gender. Relying on postmodernist epistemology, GI relegates to culture and social constrictions how gender is determined. Language is being rewritten to suit GI ends, predominantly in the field of pronoun use with legal application and enforcement. The law is also crafting itself along GI lines. CQT, also a fused product of cultural Marxism and postmodernism, seeks to make “normal” traditionally held fundamentals, particularly in the realm of sexuality, sex, and gender. According to the Family Research Council, these Neo-Marxist dogmas are being “taught” in elementary, middle, and high school levels almost uniformly across most public educational districts

Gramsci was not the first to view education as an essential tool of perforation to foster communism. Acting as the education coordinator in 1919, Georg Lukacs in the short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic instilled sexual promiscuity education for children at the elementary level. A true Leninist and devout Marxist, Lukacs premised his policy on the need to destroy the family structure and the existential bonds that derive from that. Flagrant sexuality, unchecked by morality or religion, was understood by the precursor of the Frankfurt School and its most influential mentor, as a useful mode of forming communism’s “new man”.
Sexual education in the U.S., systemically, began as early as the 1960s. It achieved a comprehensive role in American public education by the 1980s. Its emphasis was limited to family life, human growth and development, as well as “safe-sex” campaigns to avoid teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. There was no instrumental application of IG or CQT indoctrination dogmas. Parents were invited to partake in these early sexual education courses.
Sex education at schools has been refurbished. It is now about sexualization, hedonism, and the erotization of childhood. With the loss of innocence, children will deviate from their parent’s authority. The state and the teacher’s unions seek to become the overseers of American children. This feat was something Marxism always longed for. The Soviet Union, communist China, Castro’s Cuba, Pol Pot’s Cambodia ate glaring examples of Marxist-Leninist projects to destroy the family and replace them with the state. Cultural Marxists today seek the same thing, except that the methodology has changed to weaponize sex. It comes disguised as basic educational courses “diversity”, LGBTQ “rights”, and “social justice” idioms.
Herbert Marcuse, a prominent member of the Frankfurt School, pioneered in the United States the conceptual use of sexual promiscuity and hedonism to promote communist revolution. The 1960s counterculture movement and most of the Marxist groups of that era such as the Weather Underground and the Black Panthers, for example, followed the ideological war path chartered by Marcuse. What the author of Eros and Civilization (1955) and “Repressive Tolerance” (1965) sought to achieve is now an integral part of the curriculum in America’s basic education system.
The recent 2021 elections, displayed most clearly in the Virginia gubernatorial race, was won by the Republican candidate in great measure because of the parent’s revolt against the CT set of indoctrination strategies. This popular phenomenon of parents reclaiming their legitimate place in American society requires the purging from school courses dubbed as “educational”, sexuality formatted schemes to deconstruct free societies. Americans are waking up.
