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.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
