Teen Vogue and Karl Marx…propaganda in action

[LFC Comments: Thanks to a Willoughby lobbyist for this article from the Teen Vogue magazine.  It shows how the younger generations are being influenced by their leftist, communist teachers.]

Excerpts from the article:

Who Is Karl Marx: Meet the Anti-Capitalist Scholar

“The communist scholar’s ideas are more prevalent than you might realize.

The Communist Manifesto is most usually the work of Marx taught in schools, and he is one of the most assigned economists in United States college classes. Many may not know that he also studied law in university. He authored three volumes of Das Kapital, which outlined the fundamentals of Marxist theory of capitalism and also organized workers through the International Working Men’s Association, otherwise known as the First International. He was an editor of a newspaper that was eventually censored by the Prussian government for speaking out against censorship and challenging the government.

His writings have inspired social movements in Soviet RussiaChinaCubaArgentinaGhanaBurkina Faso, and more.

Many political writers and artists like Angela DavisFrida KahloMalcolm XClaudia JonesHelen Keller, and Walter Rodney integrated Marxist theory into their work decades after his death.”

“When I teach Marx, it’s got a lot to do with questions of how to think critically about history. Marx says we live under capitalism [but] capitalism has not always existed,” Ciccariello-Maher tells Teen Vogue. “It’s something that came into being and something that, as a result, just on a logical level, could disappear, could be overthrown, could be abolished, could be irrelevant. There’s this myth of the free market, but Marx shows very clearly that capitalism emerged through a state of violence.”

Some examples of violence that aided in the establishment of capitalism in the United States include stealing the land of Indigenous people and trafficking Africans through slavery.

We’re oftentimes taught that history moves slowly, but many Marxists disagree with that notion, and believe that that the current socioeconomic system is precarious and can be overthrown at any time.”

[LFC Comments:  Those teachers fail to mention the end results of socialism or communism in the countries that has implemented that economic system.  We read the article a couple of times looking for anything positive about capitalism and how it has created a large middle class of people, but sadly, the communist teachers are more interested in tearing the whole system down.  Not one word about how teachers are thriving in our system with pension systems that are way above the private sector.
If teachers believe that our system is so corrupt, they can “cash out” all of their assets and give it to their favorite oppressed group. Or, if they do not want to “cash out”, we hear that Venezuela is looking for teachers.]
