Cultural Marxism v. Post-Modernism: Which is More Powerful in Destroying Western Civilization?

This is important, find the time to listen to it. I listened to it twice.

For modern conservatives, a question looms large: Has cultural Marxism or post-modernism done more damage to society? Canada's Jordan Peterson claims the latter, while Paul Gottfried -- one of America's most serious paleo-conservative intellectuals, says the opposite. On this week's episode of 'The San Francisco Review of Books on Sunday,' Gottfried explains why he thinks that cultural Marxism is far more serious than post-modernism and what this means not only for America, but Western Civilization.



  1. What's Gottfried evidence to say that the defense for undocumented immigration has its roots in Frankfurt School's political correctness? He says it as if it were a given truth. I say the notion is pure BS. The defense for undocumented immigrants is the same defense for all forms of voluntary exchange against the undue encroachment from the State. When has any Cultural Marxist ever made a defense of immigration in terms of free markets?

    1. I agree Torres. Gottfried paints too wide a brush. Is cultural Marxism in wide acceptance in many universities? Sure. But looking for them in your bowl of soup and under the bed at night gets a little much.

      The problem I have with Peterson is that he conflates Marxism with postmodernism when they really are two separate animals as Gottfried knows. In fact some postmodernists we're very much hostile to Marxism like Foucault who actually toward the end of his life found appreciation in some of Hayek's ideas.
