Marxism is one of the more extreme variants of government theft, perhaps the most extreme. Americans have protested very little against such theft since the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment (Income Tax) in 1916, so they shouldn’t be surprised that the latest generation, educated by Marxists, are hopping on the bandwagon. They want your income, money, wealth, property, and ultimately your life (see “No Lives Matter,” SLL. From Chris MacIntosh at internationalman.com:
nternational Man: So-called “Woke” culture and political correctness have spread like wildfire across the West.
What do you think are the ramifications of this?
Chris MacIntosh: The “woke culture” is simply Marxism writ large.
It’s been with us for at least two generations, educating our children in the West with neo-Marxist ideologies. They’ve simply become more and more egregious. It started with gender studies and feminism studies.
We’re at the point now where we’re having debates around whether two plus two should equal four—because it’s a white supremacist ideal.
It’s the notion that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, also known as STEM, is a white, male patriarchal construct that should be abolished.
I don’t know about you, but when I drive across a bridge or walk into a building, I’d like to know that mathematics and science have played a part in constructing that.
I don’t want to drive across a bridge built by somebody who won’t acknowledge that two plus two equals four.
So, what are the ramifications? Where do I start?

He said, “If you watch what’s taking place in the universities, if there’s a very strong zeitgeist in one way or the other, watch that. Whatever that zeitgeist is, you’re going to find that, within five to ten years, in the country.”
The reason is that the leaders of the country—the CEOs, the people in management, in politics, in the courts, all come from those universities. If you look at what has been transpiring in the West over the last decade at least, in the universities—it is frightening.
It’s not a surprise now that we find these people are in positions of power. They’re instituting their vision of how the world should work. Their ideology—their zeitgeist—is Marxism. So, this woke culture is just Marxism.
