Against Critical Theory 1.0

On the rise today is an evil and insidious meta-narrative that is colloquially called Neo-Marxism or Cultural Marxism but is referred to in the academy as Critical Theory.

Critical Theory is rooted in Marxism. It began with Antonio Gramsci and intellectuals in the Frankfurt School2. The Frankfurt School was a group of Marxist intellectuals who sought to extend Marxist analysis to a broader  dialectic that included cultural analysis rather than mere economic analysis. As such it extends Marx’s meta-narrative and adds postmodern epistemology. There are five major components to the meta-narrative of critical theory.

The 1776 report has been archived

In the closing days of Trump’s presidency, The 1776 Commission released its report. The 1776 commission was authorized by Trump as a counter to Leftist revisionist history. It was written specifically to counter the thesis of the 1619 Project, ‘in which its lead author Nikole Hannah-Jones argues that “one of the primary reasons the colonists decided to declare their independence from Britain was because they wanted to protect the institution of slavery.” She adds that: “Anti-black racism runs in the very DNA of this country.” ‘

The 1619 Project is not substantiated by the historical record, and only makes sense if one views history through a Neo-Marxist lens via Critical Theory. Critical Theory is not scientific, but an untestable and gnostic conspiracy theory. The 1776 Commission Report is a good antidote.

The Christian Post does a good write-up of the report, with a link to the original URL of the publication on the White House Web site. Within one hour of President Biden’s inauguration, it was removed from the White House Website. I have taken the liberty of archiving the The-Presidents-Advisory-1776-Commission-Final-Report which I downloaded on January 19, 2021. It should be noted, that like all other  publications of the United States Government, that this is public domain for any one to copy or republish.
