Let us begin with a very terse description cultural Marxism is a broad term which refers to the advocacy and application of critical theory and more generally to the cultural political and academic influence of certain elements within the contemporary left .

The roots of cultural Marxism are to be found in what is commonly known as the Frankfurt School .the term arose informally to describe her fingers affiliated normally associated with the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research at the Goethe University in Frankfurt Germany during the interwar period .critical of both capitalism and Soviet socialism they sought to address the perceived shortcomings of classical Marxism in the pursuit of societal change their work came to be referred to as “critical theory” defining or categorizing critical theory is exceptionally difficult for it pertains to a broad almost disparate set of ideas individuals and approaches the underlying and injuring a spate of critical theory common to all its offshoots nonetheless is the creation of interdisciplinary theories that might serve as instruments of social transformation during the 1960’s the Frankfurt School critical theory gained traction with some segments of the left wing and leftist thought in both Europe and North America .


Today its influence is felt throughout Western academia and Indian academia dominating the social sciences and humanities .One of the most influential critical theorist and an original member of the Frankfurt School was Herbert Marcuse after a cursory glance at any paragraph written by Marcuse user will set alarm bells ringing for anyone even remotely familiar with the current culture of intolerance on college campuses and in wider Indian society .consider the following passage from his 1965 repressive tolerance ” the small and powerless minorities which struggle against the false consciousness and its beneficiaries must be helped their continued existence is more important than the preservation of abused rights and liberties which grant constitutional powers to those who are oppress these minorities”. social justice, feminism, neo-progressivism and post colonialism to name but a few are all movement inspired by and all born out of critical theory and thus all come under the umbrella of cultural Marxism be it caste, gender, sexual orientation, family, race, culture or religion .Every aspect of a person’s identity is to be questions every normal or standard in society challenged and ideally altered in order to benefit supposedly oppressed groups.

Theodor W.Adorno another original member of the Frankfurt School wrote a book entitled “the authoritarian personality” in which he defines parented pride in one’s family Hinduism’s or any other dominant religion’s adherence to traditional gender roles and attitudes towards sex and the love of one’s own country is deemed as pathological phenomena .This tendency to pathologize opinions & life patterns which are not in accordance with his own political ends is characteristic of cultural Marxism differing views are destined scribed as irrational fears or phobias .The popular and propagandist manifestation of cultural Marxism is political correctness in which media channels and social scientists make it a mandatory exercise to do the following

Question common language e.g., illegal immigrants for example are to be referred to as undocumented migrants while casteist or gendered discrimination is referred to as affirmative action or quota’s their ambition to define and redefine words can be seen as a means of controlling the discourse and altering cultural norms of racism and sexism and casteism have been redefined as a product of prejudice plus power which leads to such ridiculous statement says there’s no such thing as sexism against men and maintain and unwaveringly favorable view of groups which are not as being oppressed Islam is a religion of peace just Dalits are oppressed and everyone else is privileged ,feminism is only about equality and so forth no deviation from the aforementioned narrative will be entertained ever nor will criticism. While communism as Marx envisioned it offered the resolution of class conflict in a utopian social system all the cultural Marxism offers is a desolate form of eternal warfare between ever more narrowly defined groups of offended minorities the only meaningful consequence that its wide application could possibly ever have is the marginalization of traditional Indian culture.

Since Political Marxism failed at the end of cold war after disintegration of ex-USSR those Marxists  turned to divide and rule by infecting culture and society of nation’s like India. Progressive measures like Affirmative action create castes within castes; reservations based on religious affiliation create smaller religious groups. Affirmative action in general provokes as much opposition as it does support and seat reservations in India have a history of not trickling down to the neediest intended beneficiaries. These Cultural Marxists can only operate and think in terms of groups like male or female collective or groups or religious groups like Hindu’s or Muslims. These collectivists seek to destroy individual rights for collective rights of a Drama creating group(Dissenters for hire=feminists,leftist ideologues) for their political and ideological aspirations for supremacy financially, politically and socially at any cost many times at cost of liberties and property of individuals they declare the Oppressor then they use such Affirmative action to move ahead where the entire society pays for them with their taxpayer money. Another part of Cultural Marxist divide ,rule and conquer is pushing for 1 sided laws like violence against women laws which are highly vague and heavily misused e.g.,498A,RAPE law ,Domestic Violence act, law against sexual harassment at workplace act and more such laws which cause turmoil in society and more harm than good at times. They wish to destroy the Basic unit of society the Indian nuclear family and get rich and powerful by doing so.By playing caste politics or minority politics they wish to destroy the largely religious harmony that has lasted for thousands of years and again get richer and more powerful by doing so.
