The Left’s Hidden Agenda

Here are two powerful expose’ articles from The Spectator describing what has been the real hidden agenda of the Left in the aftermath of the collapse of Marxism/Leninism in the Soviet Union: Marxism didn’t die. It’s alive and well and living among us, and As the left surges back, Marxism’s bloody legacy is covered up.

Out of this understanding came Eurocommunism, through which the continent’s communists sidled back into the democratic and anti-Stalinist left, just as Soviet power vanished from the earth. It was and remains amazing just how little this new trend cares about once huge issues such as nationalisation and state control. It is, as David Aaronovitch’s old comrade pointed out all those years ago, much more interested in sex, in more ways than one. It will cheerfully see the railways privatised, as long as childhood is nationalised, lifelong marriage is made obsolete, Christianity and patriotism are disempowered and defeated, borders are flung wide, and education becomes a mechanism for enforcing egalitarianism.

People in the West seldom knew just how interested the old Eastern bloc communist regimes also were in these cultural and moral objectives. The communists loathed lasting Christian marriage and mistrusted all private life. They vigorously promoted abortion and easy divorce. I will always recall, one dark Moscow afternoon, finding a statue to the frightful Pavlik Morozov, whom Soviet children were taught to worship because he had betrayed his parents to the party. If you knew what it represented, it was a bit like stumbling across a graven image of Moloch.

Épater le bourgeois (shock the middle classes) has been the revolutionary rallying cry of the Left in the cultural war against Judeo-Christian morality and the nuclear family for well over a hundred years.

It lies at the epicenter of Modernism, Marxism, Fascism, National Socialism, Feminism, Progressivism, Environmentalism, and Homosexualism.
