Many conservatives are bewildered and befuddled by the apparent intellectual incoherence of the left. But if we really understand Marxism beyond the superficial levels we often see in the blogosphere and social media, all the bewilderment disappears. We think on the basis of the linear classical method of logical development. In other words, we follow … Continue reading Critical Race Theory: How to Be an Anti-Rationalist
Question: I don’t believe there is such thing as cultural Marxism. It’s merely a made up myth.
