This essay was originally published on the Brenner Brief website in May 2014, and I thought that I would reproduce it on this website for readers to determine for themselves how much has changed in the intervening four years.
The essay was prompted by an article in the Daily Telegraph
, concerning Michael Gove, the Education Secretary
, who was at an Asian Business Awards function recently and spoke about the success of Asians in Britain. In doing so he referenced the now discredited concept of multiculturalism and was apparently in some confusion about it, giving the concept some praise which was manifestly undeserved.
Having done this, he was taken to task by David Green, from the right of centre think-tank Civitas
, who said that Mr Gove had confused “multi-ethnicity” with “multiculturalism”. He said:
He said: “Michael Gove has confused a multicultural society with a multi-ethnic society. We have become a multi-ethnic society, but we been successful because our dominant culture of freedom and democracy allows space for different lifestyles.
“The vital point is that alternative lifestyles must be compatible with a free, democratic and tolerant society. Multiculturalism is the name for the condition in which antagonistic cultures co-exist in the same country.
“Mr Gove should have known from his experience of dealing with alleged sectarianism in Birmingham’s schools
that not all cultures are compatible with a free society. Muslims who are opposed to extreme interpretations of Islam will not thank him for confusing the issue.
“There is good diversity and bad diversity […] Sectarianism is diversity that threatens freedom, democracy and toleration.”
The fact that Michael Gove – a man who has done more than most
in recent years to reform the UK educational system and undo the worst excesses of previous Labour governments and the teaching unions – can confuse the evil of multiculturalism with its comparatively benign cousin, multi-ethnicity, is a testimonial to the political machinations of the Left who have almost, but not quite
, succeeded over the past twenty or thirty years in making us all think that multiculturalism is somehow a good thing and that anyone who opposes it must by definition be racist and bigoted.
The concept of multiculturalism of course, could never have even got off the ground if it were not for the all-pervading miasma of political correctness, which has stifled independent thought, reasoning, logic and critical analysis – not only in the UK but in most, if not all other Western democracies for the last forty or fifty years. Political correctness has often been spoken of in disparaging terms – but most people have accepted the concept as a necessary prerequisite for remaining within the boundaries of polite society when faced with the possibility of falling out with their friends, families and / or work colleagues. In some cases people have even been threatened with the loss of their livelihood, particularly in employment sectors dominated by the political left, such as health, education or local government, if they have been found to hold politically incorrect views.
It is not widely known, and in fact the political left have tried to keep it a closely guarded secret, but the twin evils of political correctness and multiculturalism derive from a Marxist concept – Cultural Marxism
– developed by the Frankfurt School
in the 1920′s. Cultural Marxism seeks to:
… destroy everything good about a society, what holds it together, what helps it to advance, what promotes intelligence and beauty. It seeks to degenerate society and take it to a lower form where people are less intelligent and more animal. It’s based on the Marxist lie that everything good about society is all a form of oppression. Every time anyone promotes Cultural Marxism, they use the same line claiming it is about freeing people from oppression. These common Cultural Marxist themes all are promoted by the same lie that they are done in the name of freedom: liberalism
, sexual perversion
, degenerate art
, degenerate music
, mass immigration
, anti-intelligence and promotion of people acting like animals, […] multiculturalism
, oppressing people of European ancestry, and destroying nationalism
Although originally developed by the Frankfurt School, the Cultural Marxism model was further developed in later years by another group of intellectuals at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies in Birmingham, England. The fields of Cultural Studies and Critical Theory
are rooted in and influenced by Cultural Marxism.
Cultural Marxism has been formulated in such a way as to subvert Western nations and civilization using methods other than direct political action. using political correctness, multiculturalism and Critical Theory. It seeks to control society by manipulating language, media, and academia. In addition, demographic genocide
is a major focus of Cultural Marxism.
When you realise this, of course, many things start to fall into place, and all of a sudden the essay “Preventing White Genocide
” by Paul Weston – a British politician and leader of the [former] political party Liberty GB
– leaps sharply into focus.
