What a podcast we have for you! The Frankfurt School! One for the kids baby. Let them listen and learn. Special thanks to Praxial Logic for sending it over.
The Frankfurt School: Conspiracy to Corrupt by Timothy Matthews. This is a marvelous article which I read aloud for you.
What was the Frankfurt School? Well, in the days following the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, it was believed that workers’ revolution would sweep into Europe and, eventually, into the United States. But it did not do so. Towards the end of 1922 the Communist International (Comintern) began to consider what were the reasons. On Lenin’s initiative a meeting was organised at the Marx-Engels Institute in Moscow.
The aim of the meeting was to clarify the concept of, and give concrete effect to, a Marxist cultural revolution. Amongst those present were Georg Lukacs (a Hungarian aristocrat, son of a banker, who had become a Communist during World War I ; a good Marxist theoretician he developed the idea of ‘Revolution and Eros’ – sexual instinct used as an instrument of destruction) and Willi Munzenberg (whose proposed solution was to ‘organise the intellectuals and use them to make Western civilisation stink. Only then, after they have corrupted all its values and made life impossible, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat’) ‘It was’, said Ralph de Toledano (1916-2007) the conservative author and co-founder of the ‘National Review’, a meeting ‘perhaps more harmful to Western civilization than the Bolshevik Revolution itself.’
We’ve talked about Aaron Clarey a lot, but did I ever mention to you that he has audible versions of his books? You know his latest work Reconnaissance Man? Well, it’s now out on audible if you’re too busy to read.
You remember Bachelor Pad Economics: The Financial Advice Bible for Men right?
Well none other than Davis Aurini is the narrator for that book. That’s what I call the exacta. A daily double having Davis on there!
And that’s not all. Aaron’s classic book, Worthless: The Young Person’s Indispensable Guide to Choosing the Right Major, also features Davis the Great as narrator. Hear the audible version, enhance your mind!
