George, not marx-lenin, or stalin.

it's Gramsci. Cultural marxism. frankfurt school. Marcuse. horkheimer. et al.

here's a good overview at a website that will offend some:

i've been running into gramsci quotes for years on education websites...

BTW my shift key has been acting up... sorry. i do like proper capitalization... but the struggle with this keyboard will not end until I give this laptop a keyboard transplant.

Did you see your cult leader’s Easter weekend statement? How’s that for a demonstration of god’s love for all? Thank the goddess that pesky day is in the rear view. Now we can back to god’s work of hating and maligning over half of our fellow Americans....ain’t hypocrisy grand?

Gregory 819am – Thanks for that link Greg. Am familiar with Garmsci’s cultural Marxism, but not at all certain that he predated or spoke clearly about subverting capitalism through the education of ‘one generation’ of youth as did Lenin, who in the mind of many, me included, made the strong and unambiguous claim around 1920.

“Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world.” ― Vladimir Lenin https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/106700-give-me-just-one-generation-of-youth-and-i-ll-transform#

Robot 10:01 - "Now we can back to god’s work of hating and maligning over half of our fellow Americans..."

I wouldn't be bragging about that...
You know, I've heard that flower arranging can be rather calming - give it a try.

The Gramscian woke have taken over the academy over the last few generations. They own the colleges of education.

They were the New Left 60 years ago.

Gregory 1254pm - Agreed.

The Success of Socialist Schooling; finally some good news.

‘Greta Thunberg to skip UN climate conference over vaccine inequality’

"Of course I would love to attend the Glasgow #COP26 But not unless everyone can take part on the same terms," she wrote. "Inequality and climate injustice is already the heart of the climate crisis. If people can’t be vaccinated and travel to be represented equally that’s undemocratic and would worsen the problem."

Think globally, act locally....by staying home.

And they said those kids coming out of college would simply outgrow it. Won’t spread like the gangrene it is. They and we thunk wrong. It’s getting more successful. Everybody is running scared shitless because of those silly kids. Corporate America comes to mind.

Only the product of the socialist schooling could think that sending ameican jobs to central amairica would work in the face of giving illegals $28k in benefits immediately and then the other free stuff. -

The price of disconnect. Well thought out article. Socialist schooling leads to irrational fear and ignorance. Sure, the got a little help from the Democrat Party (lame-stream media).

‘Why Young Adults Are the Most Frightened of COVID?’

“Nearly 3 million Americans are being vaccinated against COVID-19 each day, but the “return to normal” may not be as close as many hope.

A new survey shows many Americans have concerns about interacting with others once the pandemic is over.

“A YouGov poll of more than 4,000 people finds that two in five (39%) Americans say they are very or fairly nervous about the idea of interacting with people socially again,” writes YouGov data journalist Jamie Ballard.

While the high percentage of Americans expressing angst about socializing after the pandemic comes as a surprise, the breakdown along age groups is even more surprising.

“Among 18-to 24-year-olds, 50% say they are nervous about it. A similar number of 25-to 34-year-olds (47%) feel the same way,” Ballard writes

In other words, nearly half of Americans between 18 and 34 are concerned about returning to a normal social life after the pandemic. In contrast, just 31 percent of those over 55 responded that they are nervous about interacting with people again.

The contrast is noteworthy because it’s widely understood that young people are far less likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID. But how less likely?

Our World in Data has a chart breaking down the case fatality rates in South Korea, China, Italy, and Spain. The data show the case fatality rate is about 0.2 percent for people in their 20s and 30s, a tiny fraction compared to people over 60.”

Garbage in, garbage out.
