Cultural Marxism isn't a thing - With Tory MP Suella Braverman repeating the alt-right conspiracy theory of 'cultural marxism', Aaron thought he'd take a closer look at the idea.
Democracy and Class Struggle says there are a lot of pre- suppositions and assertions built in to right wing and fascist thinking that should come as no surprise as the Syncretic thought they indulge in is the application of a religious concept Syncretism to material class politics - they ignore the historical materialist reality of class struggle they invent their own world by asserting it not proving it..
One of the problems we have noticed about the use of the label Fascism is that we still have the mentality of a list and tick boxes for Fascism - tick ALL the boxes and we have Fascism.
Our view of Fascism is that it is process not a thing - Proto Fascism - the precursor Fascism out of Power - Fascism in Power when it is fully fledged - but even within power Fascism can have stages.
This means that different characteristics of Fascism come to the fore at different stages - Proto Fascism - Fascism out of Power -Fascism in Power.
Therefore those that wait until the final hour for calling Fascism out are making a serious political error and treat Fascism as a thing and not a process and do not understand the chameleon nature of Fascism and will always act after the event - when it is too late.
