Critical race theory: Marxist definition of history

For now, let's talk about the fact that Marxism began in the 19th Century, and it's based on the philosophy of a 19th Century philosopher. What happened to the two thousand years of philosophy before that?

If you really look at Marx's understanding of history, it's pretty limited. Unlike most philosophers that came before him, Marx doesn't start at the beginning of philosophy, and definitely not at the beginning of actual human history. If he had, he would understand a lot more about why we humans do what we do.

He said, “Until me, philosophers have only interpreted the world. But the point of philosophy is to change the world."

Marxists have a terrible understanding of history.

Marx rarely talks about the philosophy of the Ancient Greeks. He mostly just cherry-picks concepts and totally misrepresents them—which is one of the things he does best. Marx definitely doesn't talk about the Christian philosophers of the Middle Ages.

As a result, Marxists have a terrible understanding of history. It's baked right into the ideas of Marx. Marx said, “there is only a single science, the science of history." He saw Marxism as “scientific socialism."

Here's the rest of the quote:

History can be contemplated from two sides, it can be divided into the history of nature and the history of mankind. However, the two sides are not to be divided off; as long as men exist the history of nature and the history of men are mutually conditioned.

That's a pretty awful definition of history. What does it mean? It's even worse than it sounds.

One of Marx's biggest goals was to “unmask" history.

He wrote that “the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles." He saw history as something only certain groups of people were entitled to.

He calls 1847 “the pre-history of society."

1848, one year later, is the year Communist Manifesto was published. This is a not-so-subtle jab at Christianity. Marx is basically saying history should be measured by "Before Marxism" and "After Marxism." In other words, from the start, Marxism modeled itself as a religion. And, as Marxist do, Marx just covered up this unpleasant reality by saying that the truth wasn't the truth. “Marxism can't be a religion if it claims that religion is evil."

Marx does the same thing with ideology. He says, ideology is evil. But Marxism isn't an ideology. He does it with private property. He says, nobody should have private property, but we should have private property. He says, power is corrupting, but it won't corrupt us. Just about every part of Marxism is based on this kind of blatant hypocrisy.

So let's chart the Marxist breadcrumb trail...

  • Marxism is “scientific socialism."
  • But Marx believed that the only science is the science of history.
  • But, according to Marx, history is the “the history of nature and the history of man."
  • But the history of nature and the history of man is the history of society.
  • But the history of society is the history of class struggle.
  • So in order to know history, we have to unmask it. How do we unmask it? Marxism.
  • Therefore, the only way to understand history is by following the commandments of Marxism.

Here's the quote that explains it all, from Marx:

In bourgeois society, the past dominates the present: in Communist society, the present dominates the past.

Revisionist history, plain and simple. From the very beginning, Marxism was a scam. And every version of it that has followed is just a continuation of that scam. Critical Race Theory is just the newest face of the giant pyramid scheme called Marxism.

Like any scheme, like any cult, Marxism relies on followers who blindly accept the ideas they're given—even when those ideas make no sense. Even when the most important parts are obvious contradictions.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
