IIRC grandpa Patton wanted to do that after he finished up with the Nazis.

So did General Macarthur.

yup, he knew that the only way to save Korea from the communists was total war. So Truman fired him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_MacArthur#Korean_War

Thanks for posting. I had to study that crap in college (for a completely unrelated degree) and it was an absolute waste of time. Awesome for the tumblrites, but crap for everyone else.

You realize though the utter insanity of what you wrote? That you had to study that crap in college for a completely unrelated degree.

That is the farce I am most upset with, if it becomes a religion we will be tossed from the university as it will become the temple.

The "Home Space" for the flock, free of the heretics. The existence of this heresy will of course change any country it is in, we will uncontrollably swing right and it will be a worse thing then if SocJus had never occurred at all.

 

Also I love that this video added post-colonialism as a product of Critical Theory, I would not doubt that an academic discipline featuring "methods of intellectual discourse" that explain the human consequences of controlling a country and establishing settlers for the economic exploitation of the native people and their land. What a crock of demoralizing "kicking a man when he's down", its only purpose is to ham-handedly ensure that colonialism doesn't happen again which would be fine but everyone that rejects the ham-handed indoctrination begins to question everything about the evils of colonialism became people like to think that they know the truth of a thing.

But otherwise I wouldn't be well rounded!

They tried to argue it was relevant to an animation degree because "you might want to make a film about this stuff," but by that argument we should also be studying quantum physics and catering, just in case.

In their defence, they did try to have as much animation in there as possible, but somehow the course still ended up being "my pet politics in fine art."

Marxism was ultimately about achieving a better living standard for the working class, This should actually be refered to as cultural fascism, I can think of nothing more bourgeois than gender politics.

Naomi Klien has written a great essay about this very idea called, "Patriarchy Gets Funky". She argues that identity politics began as a movement that presented a valid and important challenge to the power structures of our society, but has since become an all consuming and diversionary politics which measures society by how fairly the media represents it, and completely ignores its increasingly staggering class inequalities. She explains how their radical sexual and racial identities were quickly assimilated into the brand identities of major corporations to conceal their selling of sameness on a global scale.

The only meaningful consequence that it's wide application could possibly have is the marginalization of traditional European culture

Yes, and it's working.

I have actually read a few books by members of the frankfurt school and this video is wildly inaccurate. The claims being made are as absurd as someone saying that Martin Luther King was a white supremacist who invented prisons. The frankfurt school had absolutely nothing to do with the development of "politically correctness". These 'cultural' marxists were a group of artists who became philosophers because they saw world as being too dark a place to create anything beautiful. They were born mostly in the 1890s, so they lived through WW1 and WWII. They thought that the effects of radios and televisions on their generation and on younger generations was very bad. Its very unsettling to see a video demonizing a group of philosophers who believed essentially in the tradition of 18th and 19th century philosophy. Its very strange that there is a sophisticated propaganda effort being directed against a bunch of people who believed that the world could be a beautiful place if only there was more understanding amongst the brotherhood of mankind. To me it seems that they being attacked in the same way that Galileo was persecuted by the Catholic Church. If your want to find out who the frankfurt school were I would really recommend checking them out for yourself. But for god's sake don't associate them with PC fascism.

This video's account of Herbert Marcuse is inaccurate. Marcuse believed that capitalism in the West had become so good at satisfying human needs for those who participated in it that people willingly embedded themselves deep in its structure. Unlike the brutal sweatshop dominated version of capitalism that Marx knew when he formulated his ideas, this new capitalism gave people backyard pools, HD TVs, iPhones, and an entertainment economy that allowed all to feel they had expressed themselves. However, he ultimately believed that despite capitalism's new less brutally cruel incarnation, it trivialized culture and withered away people's critical faculties. The reason Marcuse emphasized marginalized people is because he thought that, since they were rejected by the seductive economy providing so much material wealth , they were the only class of people capable of forming a revolutionary class and overthrowing the bourgeoisie. Marcuse believed in the same revolution Marx did: the overthrow of the bourgeoisie by the proletariat and the creation of a classless society. He was simply describing how that might now be achieved.

tl;dr: none. You need the whole thing.
