“Progressives” Not Aware Their Real Purpose is Destruction

A very influential communist named Antonio Gramsci noted wisely that free people in a capitalist country would never revolt of their own accord. The ties of culture and tradition – not to mention the benefits of capitalism – were too strong to support an alien ideology that a revolution could coalesce around.

He reasoned that as a precursor to Communism, a campaign to de-legitimize the existing society was required. Tradition and authority should be attacked wherever they presented themselves. Existing structures and conventions should be challenged, undermined, redefined. Marriage, church, family, national identity – everything must be eroded and weakened to pave the way for the glorious revolution. He called this strategy “The Long March Through the Institutions”.

Gramsci died in 1937 but his ideas soldier on. Marriage redefined by lawsuit, the continued exorcism of religion from public spaces, the glorification of youth and disregard for the wisdom of elders. This list could go on for pages – look around you and everywhere you turn someone is swinging a wrecking ball at the foundations of civilization.

And the amazing part – the dark beauty of Gramsci’s vision is that these “progressives” are not even aware that their real purpose is destruction.

They really think they’re improving the plane.

Outstanding analysis and analogy, though I don’t agree with the pessimistic ending of his post.

I agree with Ronald Reagan that America is awakening.

    I’m afraid your optimism is not well founded.

  2. Thomas,
    Thank you for your comment.

    My beliefs are, as this country is, well-founded on the word of God.

    But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’”

    Luke 4:4

    Can you show me in God’s word where my optimism is not well-founded?

    I believe that pessimism is living in fear (or, said another way, living in faith that bad things are going to happen). But that fear is not from God.

    For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

    2 Timothy 1:7

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

    1 John 4:18

    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,
    Red Pill
