America's Cultural Revolution
America is currently in the midst of a slow-motion Marxist cultural revolution. When Marxist leaders came to America, after being driven out of Germany by the Nazis, they settled in the city of New York. In America they encountered a prosperous nation that was ready for staging a communist revolution. The early leaders realized a violent revolution would never work in America since the people were satisfied with the state of the economy and their standard of living. Due to the freedoms Americans experienced and the restrictive controls on government intervention in their private lives and businesses, Americans were living a wealthy lifestyle in contrast to other nations. They would never go for a violent revolution like that which occurred in Russia. They realized this called for a new strategy to bring down this powerful and wealthy nation.
They revised their strategy to aim at changing the culture from within. They aimed to undermine the basic Western values in America which came from the nation's founding Christian ethics. To accomplish this strategy they determined it was necessary to take over the institutions that helped to relay America's cultural values from one generation to the next. These cultural institutions included education, government leadership, the media, business and church leadership. They were committed to their agenda which they realized could take years. Tragically, they have been very successful and are having a major influence within American culture. Journalist Christopher Rufo describes the nature of this culture war in his book "America's Cultural Revolution."
