When Karl Marx died, his successors who formed the Frankfurt School pondered what went wrong. Why did communism not become the dominant political and economic ideology across the globe? They had popular support and what they believed was the right idea. So why did it not become a thing?
Their conclusion was that a combination of faith and familial ties kept people from adopting the ideology in wholesale. That is why around the turn of the 20th century they decided to rethink their strategies. The early stages of Neo-Marxism included discussions about how to separate people from their faith and their families. Only then, they surmised, could the masses be truly indoctrinated into accepting the end of their freedoms and personal property in exchange for the collective good.
That conclusion prompted them to develop the various strategies we’re seeing employed today. Cultural Marxism, for example, is an ideal way to attack both faith and familiar bonds. It forces people to take sides on issues that would have otherwise been unimportant to them. The most striking example is the push for pronouns. The vast majority of Americans couldn’t care less about pronouns since throughout the history of the English speaking world it was never an issue. Only today are people being compelled to question the most basic aspects of our language by denouncing biology and accepting our post-truth society as supreme.
On today’s episode of The JD Rucker Show, I was joined by Kay Rubacek. This enthralling interview exposed not only what the Chinese Communist Party and other Marxist governments are doing, but also what we must do in western society to keep it from spreading.
Of particular interest was her perception that the “rising Neo-Marxism” many of us believe exists may actually be fake. In other words, the popularity of socialism among Americans today may be manufactured for effect rather than an actual acceptance of the anti-American philosophy. They want us to THINK they’re getting traction and making waves when in reality they represent a minuscule portion of the population.
The most important lesson Rubacek has to share pertains to her experience talking to people who have been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party. Surprisingly, she also found similar stories from some of the persecutors themselves. Those who are able to make it through tyranny are those with strong faith and loving families. Those who have neither often suffer the most. Her explanation was startling.
It isn’t often that I strongly encourage people to watch or listen to an entire episode, but this interview with Rubacek is the exception. She is a wealth of knowledge and her message needs to spread far and wide.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
