How liberalism took over
Godfather Politics –
Instead, Marxism would have to put on a new face and talk about “national consensus,” “national unity,” and “national pacification.” Sound familiar? The democratic process rather than revolution would be used to bring about the necessary changes.
Even after all of these successes, Gramsci still understood that CHRISTIANITY REMAINED HIS BIGGEST OBSTACLE IN ACHIEVING HIS NEWLY FORMULATED MARXIST GOALS. He had to strip the mind of any notion of the transcendent — “that there is nothing beyond the matter of this universe. There is nothing in existence that transcends man — his material organism within his material surroundings.” The public (government) schools accomplished this for the so-called “progressives.” Parents willingly sent their children to the free public schools where they would be indoctrinated to love the State.
Gramsci wasn’t finished. After building their coalition “they must enter into every civil, cultural and political activity in every nation, patiently leavening them all as thoroughly as yeast leavens bread.” To change the culture, Gramsci argued, “would require a ‘long march through the institutions’ — the arts, cinema, theater, schools, colleges, seminaries, newspapers, magazines, and the new electronic medium [of the time], radio.”
