RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – This is a study of the ‘Frankfurt School’ and its cultural Marxist philosophy, which is said to now control Western intellectualism, politics, and culture.

It was by design; an internationalist intelligentsia created it to eradicate Western values, social systems, and European racial groups in a pre-emptive attempt to spark a global communist revolution.

Following the teachings of the Frankfurt School, the world is experiencing a so-called ‘repressive tolerance’, also known as political correctness, under which dissenting opinions are stifled.

Anyone who disagrees with their opinions should be forcibly silenced. This is practiced daily today with social media censorship.

This totalitarianism is now standard practice and commonplace in universities, the media, and Hollywood. Political correctness is a part of this system.

THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL

The Frankfurt School, known more appropriately as Critical Theory, is a philosophical and sociological movement spread across many universities around the world. Initially, it was located at the Institute for Social Research (Institut für Sozialforschung), an attached institute at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.

The Institute was founded in 1923 thanks to a donation by Felix Weil to develop Marxist studies in Germany. After 1933, the Nazis forced its closure, and the Institute was moved to the United States, where it found hospitality at Columbia University in New York City.

The academic influence of the critical method is far-reaching. Some of the critical issues and philosophical preoccupations of the School involve the critique of modernity and capitalist society, the definition of social emancipation, as well as the detection of the pathologies of society.

Critical Theory provides a specific interpretation of Marxist philosophy regarding some of its central economic and political notions like commodification, reification, fetishization, and critique of mass culture.
