It is perhaps no mistake that cultural Marxists in the form of
“social justice warriors”, PC busybodies and feminists tend to create
artificial divisions between people and “classes” while attacking and
homogenizing very real and natural divisions between individuals based
on biological reality and inherent genetic and psychological ability.
This is what cultural Marxists do: divide and conquer or homogenize and
conquer, whatever the situation happens to call for.
do this most commonly by designated arbitrary “victim status” to
various classes, thus dividing them from each other based on how
“oppressed” they supposedly are. The less statistically
prominent a particular group is (less represented in a job field, media,
education, population, etc.) in any western society based on their
color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, etc., generally the more
victim group status is afforded to them by social justice gatekeepers.
Whites and males (straight males) are of course far at the bottom of
their list of people who have reason to complain and we are repeatedly
targeted by SJW organizations and web mobs as purveyors of some absurd
theory called “the patriarchy”.
Although cultural marxism does indeed target every individual and
harm every individual in the long run, my list of personal solutions
outlined in this article will be directed in large part at the
categories of people most attacked by the social justice cult today.
I do not write often about PC cultism and social justice because the
movement is only a symptom of a greater problem, namely the problem of
collectivism. The only true and concrete social (group) division is the
division between collectivists and individualists: between those who
believe the individual should be subservient to the group mind and those
who believe the group is meaningless without the individual mind.
I have already spoken on the root dangers and logical inconsistencies
of the social justice cult in articles such as ‘The Twisted Motives
Behind Political Correctness’ and ‘The Future Costs Of Politically
There are many intelligent commentators on the Web who have
consistently demolished the PC mob with reason and logic, and I leave
that battle to them. In this article I would like to continue my
examination but with the goal of presenting some real and tangible
solutions. And like most solutions to most problems, it is the
individual who is required to draw the line in the sand and change the
way he approaches the realm of cultural Marxism. It is not up to groups,
organizations or governments.
First, let’s be clear, cultural Marxism has already done most of the
damage it can possibly do to our way of life. And by damage, I mean the
end of long-standing foundational pillars of society that provide
stability and prosperity, including traditional marriage (not
government-licensed marriage), family, gender “roles,” etc. (which
cultural Marxists openly boast about tearing down).
In Western nations male suicide rates are way up. Women’s proclaimed
levels of happiness and contentment are way down, despite the fact that
they have had wage equality for decades (yes, the wage gap is a
perpetually pontificated Lochness monster-sized myth that was debunked
years ago by economists like Thomas Sowell), despite the fact that they
have surpassed men in educational participation and despite the fact
that they have total control over family planning.
Marriage rates are at historic lows since the 1970s and the rise of
social justice activism. Of course, the argument is often presented that
economic decline has more to do with this than cultural Marxism.
However, setting aside the rising tide of men who fear being bled dry
through divorce settlements based on double standards, the West’s
economic decline (and thus marriage decline) can be correlated to the
increase in overt debt spending. And debt spending is driven directly by
socialist legislation, entitlement programs and social welfare
addiction, more so even than it can be correlated to military spending.
Therefore, cultural Marxism and its vicious attempts to forcefully
“harmonize” wealth through taxation and welfare have indeed caused the
very economic conditions by which marriage is made untenable and
families are made unstable.
While women become more and more unhappy, men and masculinity are
essentially demonized by cultural Marxists (mainly feminists) as
“toxic.” This propaganda campaign has been so successful that men in
many first world nations are beginning to pursue, for all intents and
purposes, an asexual lifestyle safer from collectivist intrusions and
As if the psychological browbeating were not enough, the chemistry of
the male body is also being warped by estrogen-imitating chemicals
present in industrial products, plastics and soy-based foods. A decline
in normal levels of male testosterone and an ever increasing hormonal
feminization of younger generations of men and boys is becoming
Indirect chemical influences aren’t the only threat. Direct drugging
of boys (with far greater frequency than girls) with psychotropics in
order to subdue their natural tendencies towards physicality and
frenetic activity is epidemic in public schools, all with the goal of
making boys behave more like girls.
Finally, the erasure of free speech and thought is always the holy
grail of cultural Marxists; but this is not always done through
government power — at least not right away. Social justice cultists rely
more on collective pressure and public shaming tactics to engineer an
environment in which people feel compelled to self-censor rather than
deal with the hailstorm of witch hunters and wagging fingers.
Cultural Marxists do use government force to police what they
consider thought crimes, but usually in an incremental manner. One day,
it’s the use of government to demand associations, as with a
Christian-owned cake business being forced to work for another party
that feels entitled to a gay wedding cake. Another day, it might be a
public school being forced to allow boys dressed as girls in the girls’
bathroom or locker room. Another day, it might be the implementation of
lowered standards and quotas to force businesses to hire people with
victim-group status, even if they are unqualified for the job.
All of these actions impede upon the individual freedoms and privacy
rights of others, all under the guise of “equality.” And because
cultural Marxists need to constantly observe ever greater modes of
oppression and inequality in order to justify their existence, the
impositions on individual liberty will never end. Today, people may
argue that such violations are “minor” and not to be concerned over. It
is happening to strangers or distant neighbors, not to them; so why
should they care? Liberty movement champions know full well why this
thinking is idiotic; the trampling of one person’s individual liberties
is the trampling of ALL people’s individual liberties. Totalitarianism
is a virus that feeds on one person to the next until everyone is on the
It is not enough anymore to simply continue pointing out the insanity
of political correctness; we must also take useful steps toward
reversing the destruction already wrought.
And so, here are my solutions, which must be enacted by individuals
in their daily lives regardless of the potential backlash. Do you have
leftist leaning friends or family members? It doesn’t matter. Are you
employed in a workplace crawling with social justice ideologues? Stop
seeing them as part of the equation because they do not matter. Worried
about losing a relationship if you make a stand? Say good riddance. This
is what must be done by free thinkers if they are to counter and
reverse the collectivist nightmare of cultural Marxism.
Feel no shame: Social justice relies on shaming
tactics, usually by slandering an opponent with a label that does not
really apply to him, in order to control his arguments and behavior. If
you don’t care about being called a bigot, a racist, a sexist, a
misogynist, a homophobe, etc., then there is not really much that they
can do to you.
Do not self-censor: This does not mean you should go
out of your way to be antagonistic or act like an ass, but the thought
police have power only if you give power to them. Say what you want to
say when you want to say it, and do it with a smile. Let the PC police
froth and scream until they have an aneurism. Cultural Marxists are
generally weaklings. They avoid physical confrontation like they avoid
logic, so why fear them?
Realize there is no such thing as white privilege or male privilege:
In reality, there is only institutionalized “privilege” for
victim-status groups. There is no privilege for whites, males, white
males or straight white males. When confronted with such claims, demand
to see proof of such privilege. Invariably, you will get a long list of
first world problems and complaints backed by nothing but easily
debunked talking points and misrepresented statistics. People should not
feel guilty for being born the way they are, and this includes us
“white male devils.”
Demand facts to back claims: Cultural Marxists tend
to argue on the basis of opinion rather than fact. Present facts to
counter their claims, and demand facts and evidence in return. Opinions
are irrelevant if the person is not willing to present supporting facts
Do not play the game of “unconscious bias”: If
social justice cultists can’t counter your position with facts or logic,
they will invariably turn to the old standby that you are limited in
your insight because you have not lived in the shoes of a – (insert
victim group here). I agree. In fact, I would point out that this
reality of limited perception also applies to THEM as well. They have
not lived in my shoes, therefore they are in no position to claim I
enjoy “privilege” while they do not. This is why facts and evidence are
so important, and why anecdotal evidence and personal feelings are
irrelevant where cultural Marxism is concerned.
Let cultural Marxists know their fears and feelings do not matter: No
one is entitled to have their feelings addressed by others. And, a
person’s fears are ultimately unimportant. Whether the issue is the
nonexistent “rape culture” or the contempt cultural Marxists feel over
private gun ownership, their irrational fears are not our concern. Why
should any individual relinquish his liberties in the name of placating
Demand that society respect your inherent individual rights:
Collectivism’s ultimate propaganda message is that there is no such
thing as inherent rights or liberties and that all rights are arbitrary
and subject to the whims of the group or the state. This is false. I
have written extensively in the past on inherent rights, inborn
psychological contents and natural law, referencing diverse luminaries,
scientists and thinkers, including Thomas Aquinas, Carl Gustave Jung,
Steven Pinker, etc., and I welcome readers to study my many articles on
individualism. Freedom is an inborn conception with universally
understood aspects. Period. No group or collective is more important
than individual liberty. No artificial society has preeminence over the
individuals within that society. As long as a person is not directly
impeding the life, liberty, prosperity and privacy of another person, he
should be left alone.
Maintain your rights; they do not hurt other people:
PC cultists will invariably argue that every person, whether he knows
it or not, is indirectly harming others with his attitude, his beliefs,
his refusal to associate, even his very breathing. “We live in a
society”, they say, “and everything we do affects everyone else…”.
Don’t take such accusations seriously; these people do not understand
how freedom works.
Say, for instance, hypothetically, that I refuse to bake a gay
wedding cake for a couple and I am accused of violating their rights in
the name of preserving my own. I would immediately point out that no one
is entitled to a gay wedding cake, baked by me or anyone else and I
have every right to choose my associations based on whatever criteria I
see fit. Now, a corrupt government entity may claim I do not have that
right. But the fact is I do, and no one — not even government — can
force me to bake a cake if I don’t want to. Also, I would point out that
the gay couple in question has every right in a free society to bake
their OWN damn cake or open their own cake shop to compete with mine.
This is how freedom works. It is not based on collective entitlement; it
is based on personal responsibility.
Refuse to deny the scientific fact of biological gender:
Gender is first and foremost a genetic imperative. Society does not
determine gender roles; nature does. A man who chops up his body and
takes hormone pills to look like a woman is not and will never be a
woman. A woman who tapes down her breasts and gets a short haircut will
never be a man. There is no such thing as “transgendered” people. No
amount of social justice or wishful thinking will ever allow them to
reverse their genetic proclivities. Their psychological and sexual
leanings do not change their inborn biological reality.
By extension, we should refuse to play along with this nonsense. I
will never refer to a man in a wig and dress as a “woman.” I will never
refer to a woman with identity issues as “transgendered.” They are what
nature made them, and we should not police our pronouns just to falsely
reassure them that they can deny nature.
Deny the illusion of Utopian equality: There is no
such thing as pure equality. Society is not a homogeneous entity, it is
an abstraction built around a group of unique individuals. Individuals
can be naturally gifted, or naturally challenged. But there will
always be some people who are more apt towards success than others.
I have no problem whatsoever with the idea of equality of
opportunity, which is exactly what we have in this country (except in
the world of elitist finance which is purely driven by nepotism). I do
have a problem with the lie of universal equality through engineered
Standards of success should not be lowered in order to accommodate
the least skilled people to facilitate artificial parity. For example, I
constantly hear the argument that more people with victim group status
should be given greater representation in positions of influence and
regard within our culture, from science and engineering, to media, to
business CEO’s, to politics, etc. The key word here is “given”, rather
than “earned”. There is nothing wrong with one group of people
excelling in a field more than another group, and there is nothing wrong
with inequality when it comes to individual achievement. We must begin
refusing to reward people for mediocrity and punishing success simply
because the winners are not part of a designated victim group.
If you are a man, embrace your role: I am a man and
cannot claim to know what specific solutions women should take to
counter cultural Marxism. I would love to read an article written on the
subject by a woman in the Liberty Movement. I will say that men in
particular have a considerable task ahead in terms of their personal
endeavors if they hope to repair the destruction of social justice.
For thousands of years, men have been the primary industrial force
behind human progress. Today, they are relegated to cubicles and
customer service, to video games and Web fantasies, to drug addictions
and a lack of responsibility. If we have any chance of undoing the
damage of cultural Marxism, modern men must take on their original roles
as producers, inventors, entrepreneurs, protectors, builders and
warriors once again. They should do this for their own benefit, and not
for the validation of others.
You don’t have to prove to anyone you do “manly things”, just go out
and do them. Most importantly, become dangerous. Men are meant to be
dangerous beings. That does not mean we are meant to be indiscriminately
violent (just as women aren’t meant to be indiscriminately violent),
but we are supposed to be threatening to those who would threaten us.
Modern society has NOT removed the need for masculinity and I believe
people will begin realizing this the more our culture sinks into
economic despair. Train in martial arts, learn tactical firearms
handling, go hunting and don’t take lip from people. In my opinion,
every man should know how to kill things, even if he never plans on
using those abilities.
Home-school your children: It’s simple, if you don’t
want your kids propagandized, if you truly want them to be free from
collectivist conditioning, then you will make the sacrifice and extract
them from public schooling. With the introduction of Common Core into
U.S. schools in particular, there is no other recourse but home
schooling to prevent the brainwashing of cultural Marxism. If you do not
do this, you are relying on the hope that your children will escape
with their critical thinking abilities intact. Some do, and some don’t.
Others turn into mindless social justice zombies. You can give them an
advantage by removing them from a poisonous environment, and that is
The insane lie that cultural Marxists seem to have conned themselves
and others into believing is that their “activism” is somehow
anti-establishment. In fact, social justice is constantly coddled and
supported by the establishment. From politicians to judges to media
pundits to the blogosphere, the overwhelming majority of people in
positions of traditional power (even in supposedly conservative circles)
have been more than happy to become the enforcers of the social justice
warrior agenda, an agenda representing a minuscule portion of the
public. There is no establishment for the PC army to fight; the
establishment bias works vastly more in favor of their ideology than any
other. Cultural Marxists ARE the establishment.
