The Quiet Revolution By Lynn Stuter November 30, 2005 - Articles have surfaced recently concerning the writings of Antonio Gramsci; writings that figure predominately in what is happening in America today. One such article is Gramsci and the U.S. Body Politic. This article is a must read for anyone wishing to understand what they are seeing happen in America today. Antonio Gramsci was a transformational Marxist. As laid out in the above linked article, what Gramsci advocated was the transformation of a society to the communist state via gradualism — the gradual erosion of old ideals, replacing them with the new. As opposed to Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Mussolini, Gramsci advocated the quiet revolution. The Hegelian Dialectic of thesis (and idea), antithesis (the opposite), and synthesis (the bringing together of opposites) to form a new thesis, ever evolving, plays a heavy role in the gradualism Gramsci proposed. Today, in America, the Hegelian Dialectic is played out in meetings at every level, all acr ...

* In homage to the abstentionists: "I hate the indifferent. I believe that living means taking sides. Those who really live cannot help being a citizen and a partisan. Indifference and apathy are parasitism, perversion, not life. That is why I hate the indifferent. Indifference is the deadweight of history, but indifference operates with great power on history. Indifference operates passively, but it operates. It is fate, that which cannot be counted on. It twists programs and ruins the best-conceived plans. It is the raw material that ruins intelligence. That what happens, the evil that weighs upon all, happens because the human mass abdicates to their will; allows laws to be promulgated that only the revolt could nullify, and leaves people that only a mutiny will be able to overthrow to achieve the power. The mass ignores because it is careless and then it seems like it is the product of fate that runs over everything and everyone: the one who consents as well as the one who dissents; the one who knew a ...
Cultural Hegemony:- Capitalism maintained control not just through violence & political & economic coercion,but also ideologically, through a hegemonic culture in which the values of the bourgeoisie become the common sense values of all. Thus a consensus culture developed in which people in the working class identified their own good with the good of bourgeoisie,and helped to maintain the status quo rather than revolting. Antonio Gramsci. (Italian Philosopher) ( 1891 - 1937)

Cultural Marxism is a term referring to a group of Marxists who have sought to apply critical theory to matters of family composition, gender, race, and cultural identity within Western society. Explanation of the "Cultural Marxism" theory According to UCLA professor and critical theorist Douglas Kellner, "Many 20th century Marxian theorists ranging from Georg Lukács, Antonio Gramsci, Ernst Bloch, Walter Benjamin, and T.W. Adorno to Fredric Jameson and Terry Eagleton employed the Marxian theory to analyze cultural forms in relation to their production, their imbrications with society and history, and their impact and influences on audiences and social life." Although scholars around the globe have employed various types of Marxist social criticism to analyze cultural artifacts, the two most influential academic institutions upon Western Cultural Marxism have been the Institute for Social Research at the University of Frankfurt am Main in Germany (the Frankfurt School), and the Centre for Contemporary Cul ...

I read of an an Italian port called Livorno, the birthplace of the Italian Communist Party, and a young man Cristiano Lucarelli who played soccer for his home town team, AS Livorno. It was a beautiful tale. Now it all made sense. Al too had read about it, it turns out he had been so inspired both by the left wing politics and the tale of a sportsman who played for passion and not for the cash, he had made a pilgrimage to the town. There he talked to the locals about the good, the bad and the ugly, or to be more precise, Antonio Gramsci, Thatcher and Berlusconi.

RULES FOR RADICALS Notes on Saul Alinsky and Neo-Marxism: Alinsky's tactics were based, not on Stalin's revolutionary violence, but on the Neo-Marxist strategies of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the dialectic process rather than a bloody revolution, Gramsci's transformational Marxism was so subtle that few even noticed the deliberate changes. Like Alinsky, Mikhail Gorbachev followed Gramsci, not Lenin. In fact, Gramsci aroused Stalins's wrath by suggesting that Lenin's revolutionary plan wouldn't work in the West. Instead the primary assault would be on Biblical absolutes and Christian values, which must be crushed as a social force before the new face of Communism could rise and flourish. Malachi Martin gave us a progress report: "By 1985, the influence of traditional Christian philosophy in the West was weak and negligible. Gramsci's master strategy was now feasible. Humanly speaking, it was no longer too tall an order to strip large majorities of men an ...

How to break the stranglehold of academics on critical thinking New social movements such as Occupy need institutions to help elaborate their ideas. Where will a modern collective intellectuality spring from? By: Razmig Keucheyan The recent Occupy and Indignados movements around the world have shown the extent of the backlash against the injustice generated by the ongoing crisis of capitalism and the difficulty in articulating a co-ordinated alternative, and as such have been a source of abundant political commentary. One rarely commented-upon aspect is the way intellectuals have responded to them. During the Zucotti Park occupation in New York in autumn 2011, acclaimed critical intellectuals – among them Slavoj Žižek, Judith Butler and Cornel West – came to support the occupiers, and to give speeches in front of them, aired through the "human microphone". A weird law in New York forbids the use of electric microphones in public space so the only way for the speaker's voices to get through was for t ...

my favourite quote for the last long while has been from Antonio Gramsci: "i believe that living means taking sides. i hate indifferent people. indifference is a powerful force in history. it operates passively but effectively. events mature in the shadows, a few hands accountable to no one weave the web of collective living. i am partisan, i do mind. i feel beating within me the awareness of my own side - the life of that city of the future which my side has already begun to build. i am alive, i take sides. hence i detest whoever does not, i hate indifference." indifference, apathy, fear, despair, helplessness, distraction...how do these sweep through our communities and ourselves? and how can we help each other (not hate on each other, antonio!) to shed what's preventing us from expressing our politics; from centring ourselves in that awareness of a collective spirit of resistance? and building, making, fighting, and struggling for an alternative future? two people who really inspire me in making their ...

"...it must be made clear that laissez-faire too is a form of state 'regulation', introduced and maintained by legislative and coercive means.

Consequently, laissez-faire liberalism is a political programme..." - Antonio Gramsci
President Obama has been extremely successful, just not by any standards you or I would use - jobs, the economy, foreign or domestic policy, etc. Those are issues. President Obama doesn't care about issues. He's playing by a different set of rules - the Alinsky rules. "The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution." -Saul Alinsky In other words, healthcare is never the issue. Education is never the issue. Racial & social justice are never the issues. Poverty is not the issue. Abortion, women, & unborn children are never the issues. The revolution, aka the "fundamental transformation," is always the issue. A few days before he was elected in 2008, Obama said he would fundamentally transform America. His vision for America is only shared by a very small percentage of Democrats, the Communist Party USA & their labor unions, Marxist college professors, and the liberal media. This vision is so bad that they knew he had to lie, cover up the truth, and make huge promises to get elected & re-el ...
Interesting read sounds like 2013 Paul Harvey Aurandt (1918–2009), better known as Paul Harvey, was America’s National Commentator. His listening audience was estimated, at its highest, to be around 24 million people a week. “Paul Harvey News was carried on 1,200 radio stations, 400 Armed Forces Network stations and 300 newspapers. His broadcasts and newspaper columns have been reprinted in the Congressional Record more than those of any other commentator.” One of Paul Harvey’s most popular messages was the Christian classic “The Man and the Birds” based on a verse from the book of Job: “Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you” (12:7b). Paul Harvey didn’t just report the news with his distinctive voice; he would always make the point that the news was reflective of society. You could take the pulse of America’s moral health by reading the daily newspaper. In 1964, Paul Harvey wrote “If I Were the Devil.” Various versions of the article have appeared over time. I first he ...
Doesn't this sound like today's liberals? The civilized world had been thoroughly saturated with Christianity for 2,000 years and Christianity remains the dominant philosophical and moral system in Europe and North America. Practically speaking, civilization and Christianity were inextricably bound together. Christianity had become so thoroughly integrated into the daily lives of nearly everyone, including non-Christians living in Christian lands, it was so pervasive, that it formed an almost impenetrable barrier to the new, revolutionary civilization Marxists wish to create. Attempting to batter down that barrier proved unproductive, since it only generated powerful counter-revolutionary forces, consolidating them and making them potentially deadly. Therefore, in place of the frontal attack, how much more advantageous and less hazardous it would be to attack the enemy's society subtly, with the aim of transforming the society's collective mind gradually, over a period of a few generations, from its forme ...

"We're getting stupider, crueler, and more depressed by the minute. Oliver James calls the values of the corporate media "Affluenza," likening it to a virus that spreads across societies. He points out that anxiety, depression, and addiction rise in direct proportion to the inequity of a country. the values required to institutionalize inequality are values that are destructive to human happiness and human community. Injustice requires reducing living beings - including ourselves - to "manipulable commodities.: James writes, "Intimacy is destroyed if you regard another person as an object to be manipulated to serve your ends, whether at work or at play... This leaves you feeling lonely and craving emotional contact, vulnerable to depression." How did this happen? When did people stop caring? One insight of radical cultural theorists like Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) who generated the term "cultural hegemony," is that in order for oppression to function smoothly, ideology must be transferred from the ...

Re-reading Antonio Gramsci's Notebooks. And considering his words regarding the importance of critical social awareness, the importance of the intellectual being part of everyday life, and of the part played by so-called ‘common sense’ in maintaining the status quo and the transformational possibilities of education. More than any other discourse it is the discourse of the 'common sense' - undisciplined and devoid of theoretical depth - that should be addressed as the adversary to fight. For instance the idea - common sense - that good education depends on more financial resources (Diane Ravitch shows how resources do matter, but only to a certain level). The idea that politicians - and therefore Habermas' public sphere - are corrupted and that the free market is the one answer to political corruption (when in fact it is its main cause). The idea that merit is a value per se as well as a factor of social equalization, while there is no merit without a solid previously established equality. We need to ...
Whats being created in our public school s now is the perfect government automaton. Unable to think for themselves and come to conclusions based on logic and common sense they automatically look to government to solve their problems. It’s the perfect culmination of the plan set in motion by people like Antonio Gramsci and John Dewey. The implementation of an education system that creates a subservient and compliant citizenry whose loyalty is to the state and whose only action is obedience. The application of psychological techniques (otherwise known as propaganda) perfected at the Frankfort School of Social Research for the explicit purpose of teaching people how to ask for tyranny. While this may sound a bit conspiratorial, it is, in my opinion the only logical explanation for adult human beings who believe raising our debt limit will solve our problems. It is the only explanation for a nation of “free” people that now seem to be begging the government to assume total power. At this point it is an ...
Some people behave and interpret things as if events or things just drop from the skies with no connection or that our previous leaders like Marcus Garvey, Kwame Nkrumah and co just emerge by themselves as magicians. This strange and weird thinking, no matter how widespread, is not reality. Antonio Gramsci is his thoughts questions this ahistorical approach to things. Events are always part of a process and various things are also the products of processes. Our leaders were products of a movement and events. And most importantly, NONE of these great leaders did things just by themselves. They thought together with people and acted together with people. Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare didn't dropped out of the blues and just began a life without any back ground. Those propagating that self serving lie should hide and let the pot holes of history which their craters are creating to be filled.

Pasolini was born in Bolgona, Rome provided him with material for the novel that made him famous. The Ragazzi, published in Italy in 1955, is a series of fast-moving cinematic vignettes from the Roman underworld, and recounts the adventures of a group of street-wise teenagers. The street violence found fuller expression in Pasolini's films of the Greek myths Oedipus Rex (1967) and Medea (1970), which starred Maria Callas. His solidarity with the Roman poor was at heart romantic, and in his great verse epic The Ashes of Gramsci (1952) he compares it to the youthful idealism of the poet Shelley, who is buried in the same cemetery in Rome as Antonio Gramsci, the grand theoretician of Italian Marxism. Perhaps it was inevitable that the 27-year-old "Rimbaud lacking in genius" (as Pasolini archly dubbed himself) should begin his Roman days among the despised and persecuted in a run-down flat in the Jewish ghetto. Hemmed in by the Tiber on one side, and the Largo Argentina on the other, the ghetto was (and still ...
Polska wersja troche pozniej. This is personal statement from Rene Buller (me) First of all, I don't feel that there is any split in PDL. Some people left creating their own organization (renamed) out of their own free will. Why? read at the very bottom. Very unfortunate that PDL members with only few months of seniority could have such huge influence on our spokesperson-self declared leader- not that I blame him. I was in hospital and he didn't know what is going on, he did what i would do in his place, to lead. So I'm okay with this. Having said that. I am the lone creator of the PDL since 2010 Many Admins came and left for one or another reason. I did all the heavy work by myself. and i don't do this to be popular. Our agreement with Darek was to make him rzecznik/spokesperson and cooperate, make a deadly team. In other words each of us had a role to play. Most if not all ideas came from me, Darek did a heavy work on the ground and I respect him for that. On the subject of philosophy how we should go a ...

Marxism A sociological approach to literature that viewed works of literature or art as the products of historical forces that can be analyzed by looking at the material conditions in which they were formed. In Marxist ideology, what we often classify as a world view (such as the Victorian age) is actually the articulations of the dominant class. Marxism generally focuses on the clash between the dominant and repressed classes in any given age and also may encourage art to imitate what is often termed an "objective" reality. Contemporary Marxism is much broader in its focus, and views art as simultaneously reflective and autonomous to the age in which it was produced. The Frankfurt School is also associated with Marxism (Abrams, p. 178, Childers and Hentzi, pp. 175-179). Major figures include Karl Marx, Terry Eagleton, Fredric Jameson, Raymond Williams, Louis Althusser (ALT-whos-sair), Walter Benjamin (ben-yeh-MEEN), Antonio Gramsci (GRAWM-shee), Georg Lukacs (lou-KOTCH), and Friedrich Engels, Theordor Ad ...

In his war on conservatives,Obama has been tutored by the Marx Brothers – not Chico, Harpo and Groucho, but Saul, Herbert and Antonio.Saul Alinsky instructed him to maintain "constant pressure on the opposition" and "look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty" among target groups. Herbert Marcuse advocated the "withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups which promote aggressive policies, armament (and) chauvinism," as well as those which oppose extension of the welfare state. The impact of his thinking is the main reason it’s nearly impossible for prominent conservatives to speak on college campuses today. Antonio Gramsci, a Marxist theorist of the early 20th century, urged the left to seek "cultural hegemony," which it’s largely achieved in the early 21st century. He also said the "revolution" wou ...

FLASHBACK: The education machine that keeps churning out newbies conditioned in mind-blunting nonjudgmentalism has laid the groundwork for a left-wing takeover. What reduced American education to its current state? In part, the answer lies in Cultural Marxism, a societal disease spawned by an Italian, Antonio Gramsci, in the 1920s. Gramsci preached that in order to free "oppressed" social groups, the oppressors' beliefs must be marginalized. Because Gramsci saw one particular group -- that is, traditional Christians -- as oppressive, he prescribed attacking tradition in general and Christianity specifically as the solution to oppression. Gramsci denounced moral certainty and elevated moral mushiness.
I love it when people are inspired by the Federalist Papers and not Antonio Gramsci or L. Ron Hubbard.
Title: Are Video Games Part of Popular culture’s Capitalist Hegemony? Student: Brian Carlisle St. # 107079643 Subject: Art History 210 Since the early days of video games like Fogger, Donkey Kong and Pac Man, Video games popular culture has grown and contributed to Capitalist Hegemony. Upon hearing such a statement upon first glance, might bring indignation or disdain too todays artists, critics whom are already entrenched in what is perceived as high popular culture. But the fact of the matter is and this paper will argue that this statement is inevitably true. The usage of the term hegemony in capitalist culture first appeared in the writings of Vladimir Lenin and Mao Tse Tung. But it is usually associated with Italian Marxist thought from theorists like Antonio Gramsci and Mykola Lukash. In Gramsci’s “Notebooks” he argued that modern power is not limited to direct political rule but operates through an indirect system of social institutions and cultural discourses that promotes the ruling clas ...

In philosophy, the term critical theory describes the neo-Marxist philosophy of the Frankfurt School, developed in Europe in the 1930s, that engaged the works of intellectuals such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud.[2] Modern critical theory arose from the anti-positivist sociology of Max Weber and Georg Simmel, the Marxist theories of György Lukács and of Antonio Gramsci, towards that of the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt. Critical theory was established as a school of thought primarily by five Frankfurt School theoreticians: Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Walter Benjamin, and Jürgen Habermas. In Habermas's work, critical theory transcended its theoretic roots in German idealism, and progressed closer to American pragmatism. The concern for a social "base and superstructure" is one of the remaining Marxist philosophic concepts in much contemporary critical theory.[3]

The war we face is not just about guns but It is about our survival as a nation and the fate of our children and grandchildren. Which side of history will you be on? It’s about more than guns Author - Doug Hagmann (Bio and Archives) Friday, January 11, 2013 The warning signs of a tyrannical takeover of our Constitutional Republic have been flashing red for some time now and are now reaching a fever pitch. Despite the flashing signs, the clamor of the alarms and the cries of the watchmen, most Americans of this era remain in denial or have been rendered intellectually catatonic by busily chasing immediate gratification in the form of the newest version of the iPhone, iPad, or whatever “i” device will satisfy their ADHD addled intellect. Others have simply chosen to adhere to a normalcy bias that is continuously fed by the familiar faces and voices of political pundits who remain dedicated to the lie of the right-left, Republican-Democrat paradigm of American politics, unwilling or unable to look at t ...
ALEX JONES MAY BE CRAZY, BUT PIERS MORGAN IS A LIAR! January 11, 2013 Over the past few weeks the argument over gun control has raged. The gun control debate is highly-emotional, with both sides throwing out statistics in an effort to sway Americans to either side of the aisle. Since the Sandy Hook shooting last month, CNN’s Piers Morgan has emerged as a vocal proponent for increased gun control laws. This week, after Morgan’s very public, on-air spat with radio host Alex Jones of Infowars.com, the watching world has been hit by the extremes of both sides of the argument. I thought I would take a look at the statistics themselves and be as objective as possible because I know that there are answers "out there" which neither "extreme side" is providing us. During his exchange with Jones, the CNN host Morgan alleged that Great Britain only had 35 gun-related murders in 2011 compared to 11,000 that unfolded in the U.S. during that same timeframe. Let's begin debunking there. The stat that Piers Morgan co ...
