Marxism was created by Karl Marx; a German philosopher from the mid-19th century. His message, works and writings came together to define the movement, Marxism, in The Communist Manifesto; a book written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels – both philosophers became notable only due to their contributions to the field of Communist insurgency. Another proponent to Marxist-Socialism is Vladimir Lenin, a Russian Communist “revolutionary” responsible in part for millions of deaths under Russia’s Communist rule.
Definition of Marxism (Merriam-Webster)
: the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx; especially: a theory and practice of socialism including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the proletariat until the establishment of a classless society
Excusing my taking the liberty of interpreting, a more followable definition of Marxism would be:
Definition of Marxism (The Author)
: a series of steps that, if taken, lead to the demoralization, destabilization, and eventual destruction of the target society; not by design, but by inevitable outcome as a consequent of its nature. A nature which the corrupt and powerful, who are inevitably put in place by this system due to necessity of character, exploit at the cost of human life.
Marxism is like an infection. It infiltrates the host, spreads to nearby cells, cripples and sickens the host and then moves on to another host once the first is near incapacitation – where it will stay. This is made possible by the very nature of Marxism. Indeed, it is characterized by its ability to infect the minds of the youthful and ideological, and, in conjunction with its societal crippling and mental stagnation, manufactures an ingrained resistance to cure. That is, by way of its existence, Marxism creates both the problem and the presentation of itself as a solution due to the abundance of misinformation and social engineering it necessarily begets. And no matter how numerous and obvious the actual solutions may be, the infected individuals cannot distinguish fact from fiction and often times consider one to be the other.
This creates an abundance of problems, from civil unrest to mass starvation and everything in between. These in between steps are present in every nation and culture on the whole of the Earth (with the possible exception of isolated indigenous tribes). This is due, in part, to the USSR spreading its brand of Marxist Socialism, Communism, to several countries through what USSR leaders called “brotherly assistance”. 1 This ironically cynical term encapsulates Marxist-Leninist-Socialist Communism exceptionally well. “Brotherly assistance” implies, of course, comradery characterized by mutual give and take. Its application, however, is totally the opposite.
KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov, also known as Tomas Schuman, defected to Canada and eventually the United States in 1970 after a series of realizations. The first of which being Communist Russia’s exploitation of the Indian people’s commerce. “[T]he Soviets went one step further in their ‘brotherly assistance’ to India … the Soviets, in purchasing Indian manufactured goods, would pay the Indians only in rubles. Unfortunately, rubles are non-convertible currency on the international market, meaning that the Indian manufacturer would be unable to purchase anything on the international market with his Soviet rubles. On the other hand, the Soviets would take the Indian manufactured goods and sell them at a substantial profit on the international market for ‘hard currency’ such as dollars or pounds which are easily negotiable. So basically, the Indian manufacturer received only a fraction of the actual worth of his product, while the Soviets reaped the rewards of their duplicity.” 1
“Brotherly assistance” actually means: “to be tricked into believing Marxism will benefit a host so that the Marxist may exploit the host”. In the case of Bezmenov’s experience in India, the exploitation of India was intentionally done by those higher up in the USSR chain of command, but not by Bezmenov himself or a majority of those working with him.
Which brings us to the term “useful idiot”; a recognizable Communist term which means: “a manipulated person unknowingly doing the bidding of powerful people.” The Indians were useful idiots, Bezmenov and his associates were useful idiots to a different degree, and everyone all the way up the chain of command to a certain point were, and are, useful idiots.
Marxism depends entirely upon these useful idiots from bottom to top. Everyone must be given only that information which gleefully motivates them to action; no more, no less. Unbeknownst to everyone but the most elite in the Marxist chain of command, they are all creating the mechanisms that work towards a predetermined, secretive goal: gaining more power and money; influence and affluence.
Marxism is nothing if not clever.
Fueled by the need for influence and affluence, the Marxist must convince the general population that it cannot serve its own needs and must give its power over to the government – no easy task. One cannot simply approach a host nation’s people and say “we want to seize all of your power and strip you of individual thought and freedom.” Instead, a process called “ideological subversion” is used. It starts with demoralization; the process of breaking down a society’s moral compass and sense of right and wrong. In the words of Bezmenov in 1984, “let us start with the first stage of demoralization. It takes about 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many (or few)? Simple: this is the minimum number of years needed to ‘educate’ one generation of students in a target country (America, for example) and expose them to the ideology of the subverter. It is imperative that any sufficient challenge and counter-balance by the basic moral values and ideology of this country be eliminated. In [the] absence of any cohesive and consistent national ideology, the task of the subverter becomes even easier. In the USA, as we all know, there is [a] multiplicity of ideas and ideologies today, without proper emphasis on the main and basic American ideology of the original republic and the free market system. It is not even considered ‘intellectual’ or fashionable these days to subscribe entirely to this ‘outmoded’ set of ideas.”
The demoralization process instilled by the now-defunct USSR on American Universities, but continues to this day, explained by Bezmenov:
“1. Student Exchanges whereby American students and professors go to Moscow and are exposed to ideological brainwashing sometimes lacking the proper education that would allow them to asses the Soviet information they receive objectively.
- Flooding of campus bookstores with Marxist and Socialist literature published both in the USSR and by domestic ‘fellow travelers’;
- International seminars and conferences with Soviet participation, where Soviet propaganda seldom is balanced by opposing viewpoints;
- Infiltration of schools and universities by radicals, leftists, and simply ‘disturbers’, often functioning unknowingly under the directguidance of KGB Agents of Influence.
- Establishing numerous ‘student’ newspapers and magazines,staffed with Communists and sympathizers;
- Organizing ‘study groups’ and ‘circles’ for dissemination of Soviet propaganda and Communist ideology. The eventual result is very predictable: ignorance combined with anti-Americanism. That’s good enough for the KGB at this stage of subversion.”
With the fall of the Iron Curtain in the 1980’s and the Capitalist renaissance of Russia, there was no more reason to keep subverting and demoralizing professors and students at colleges; but the Marxist ideological influence remained, festered, and spread unabated. Even without the instillation of the other steps of the ideological subversion process, Demoralization led to Destabilization, the next step, all on its own.
The percentage of college professors in the two most socially influential fields, social sciences and humanities, who define themselves as “radical” or “Marxist” are 41.6% and 24% respectively. Taking into account the number who consider themselves to be an “activist”, those numbers jump up to 62.2% and 40.2%. 2 With numbers like that, the capers of Colin Kaepernick – kneeling during the national anthem, praising Fidel Castro upon his death despite Castro being a murderous Communist dictator, and wearing socks that depict police officers as ‘pigs’, (all of which are staples of Marxist ideological subversion, specifically the Destabilization stage (fig. 2)) – are no surprise. Neither surprising, yet still horrifying and saddening, was the assassination of five Dallas police officers at the hands of a member of the radical, extreme left-wing hate-group Black Lives Matter, who were incidentally invited to Barrack Obama’s White House. Because “Marxism corrupts absolutely,” Bezmenov said.
Ideological subversion was designed this way. And its architect has a name: Yuri Andropov, a propogandist for the USSR whose specialty was crippling nations so that the final stage of the subversion process, Normalization (named after Comrade Leonid Brezhnev’s words following the successful subversion of Czechoslovakia, when he said, to paraphrase, “the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia has been normalized”) could take place. This step is characterized by the military presence of the subverter, in Comrade Andropov’s case Russia, so that the nation which fell victim to Marxist ideological subversion can be brought to heel through physical, military means – as was historically the case with Russia itself, which lead to the rise of the USSR.
So insidious and absolute is the process of Communist ideological subversion, that it needn’t be purposeful nor have a ‘puppet master’ in order to work to its fullest extent. This accidental ideological subversion is what Marxism truly is. Comrade Andropov, I speculate, would be shocked and pleased to see the monster he created still working and destroying the USA 50 years after his death.
Universities are filled to the brim with “useful idiots”; present, indeed characteristic, of both the professors and students. The mantra “Diversity is our strength”, LGBT rights excluding and ignoring the liberties of any and everyone else; these things are tantamount to the eventual and inevitable destruction of the United States of America.
And it all starts with Universities.
“Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in [the] future what the beautiful society of ‘equality’ and ‘social justice’ means in practice, obviously, they will revolt. They will be very unhappy, frustrated people, and the Marxist regime does not tolerate these people. Simply because, you see, the useful idiots — the leftists — who are idealistically believing in the beauty of [the] Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system; when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: Never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher.”—Yuri Bezmenov
