Post-presidential election commentary has focused on demographic trends. Another trend should also be noted, and that is cultural Marxism, a movement that seeks the elimination of codes of behavior, binding obligations, and moral standardsi. With President Obama’s re-election, this drift will intensify.
Rousseau-inspired cultural Marxists aim to convert our country from a virtue-based community to a wilderness of wildly autonomous selves. In Rousseau’s own words, these elites seek to “force us to be free” — free in particular from self-evident and objective truth.
As has been the case for the last four years, this state-sanctioned amorality will be bureaucratically implemented and ignored by a pornography-addled media invested in the system’s success. Resistance to this attack on virtue will occur in the social issue trenches, be exhausting but faith-enabled, and likely require court intervention.
However, because broken homes, broken marriages, sexually transmitted diseases, and incarcerated youths are still widely unpopular, values-oriented Democrats and social conservatives should reject cultural Marxism. Resistance can be a popular cause and, thus, virtue the focus around which a new majority coalesces.
To summarize, cultural Marxism rejects good things. In elite parlance, these things — faith, family, children, love of others, the home, and the womb — are “oppressive institutions,” threats to self-fulfillment in a conflict-filled jungle.
