We are living in Cultural Capitalism, and just think about that, LBGT and all the other stuff has spawned from that. If we were living in Cultural Marxism, the culture would be 'no profit' but we;re living in a 'profit' culture, so abortions, drug taking, sex changes etc etc etc...have spawned from a Cultural Capitalist paradigm.

The names such as Soros, Bloomberg et al wouldn't exist in any financially powerful position in a Marxist culture, they wouldn't have any profit to empower their will, they live here and now in this profit making Capitalist paradigm along with all the general degeneracy that certain people try to pin onto Karl Marx.

Marx was about changing the existing ideology of making profit form other people's labour into a new paradigm where profit didn't exist, there would be more free time of civilisation to enjoy as manufacture would only continue until the work base had paid for it's own existence, after the wages, supplies and general upkeep had been paid for, manufacture would stop/slow down, giving people more free time. Now if this was a good idea or not, that's another argument but we don't have that paradigm now, what we have presently in The West is a culture of profit making and Capitalism, and high speed production with low wages means more profit for the fat cats to cream off.

So we're definitely not living in Cultural Marxism and definitely are living in Cultural Capitalism, and any forms of degeneracy that is perceived has spawned from the very concept of this Capitalist culture that we're all trapped in, by a sort of demonic form of social engineering and slavery by fat cats feeding from their theft of other people's labour.

In fact if we were living in a Marxist culture making a profit from other people's labour would be seen as theft, presently we're not in a Marxist culture, we're in a Capitalist culture where making a profit from other people's labour is seen as the norm.

Key Concepts:
Cultural Capital

While he didn’t consider himself a Marxist sociologist, the theories of Karl Marx heavily influenced Bourdieu’s thinking. Marx’s influence is perhaps most evident in Bourdieu’s theory of cultural capital. Like Marx, Bourdieu argued that capital formed the foundation of social life and dictated one’s position within the social order. For Bourdieu and Marx both, the more capital one has, the more powerful a position one occupies in social life. However, Bourdieu extended Marx’s idea of capital beyond the economic and into the more symbolic realm of culture.

Bourdieu’s concept of cultural capital refers to the collection of symbolic elements such as skills, tastes, posture, clothing, mannerisms, material belongings, credentials, etc. that one acquires through being part of a particular social class. Sharing similar forms of cultural capital with others—the same taste in movies, for example, or a degree from an Ivy League School—creates a sense of collective identity and group position (“people like us”). But Bourdieu also points out that cultural capital is a major source of social inequality. Certain forms of cultural capital are valued over others, and can help or hinder one’s social mobility just as much as income or wealth.

According to Bourdieu, cultural capital comes in three forms—embodied, objectified, and institutionalized. One’s accent or dialect is an example of embodied cultural capital, while a luxury car or record collection are examples of cultural capital in its objectified state. In its institutionalized form, cultural capital refers to credentials and qualifications such as degrees or titles that symbolize cultural competence and authority.

Habitus
Habitus is one of Bourdieu’s most influential yet ambiguous concepts. It refers to the physical embodiment of cultural capital, to the deeply ingrained habits, skills, and dispositions that we possess due to our life experiences. Bourdieu often used sports metaphors when talking about the habitus, often referring to it as a “feel for the game.” Just like a skilled baseball player “just knows” when to swing at a 95-miles-per-hour fastball without consciously thinking about it, each of us has an embodied type of “feel” for the social situations or “games” we regularly find ourselves in. In the right situations, our habitus allows us to successfully navigate social environments. For example, if you grew up in a rough, crime ridden neighborhood in Baltimore, you would likely have the type of street smarts needed to successfully survive or steer clear of violent confrontations, “hustle” for jobs and money in a neighborhood with extremely low employment, and avoid police surveillance or harassment. However, if you were one of the lucky few in your neighborhood to make it to college, you would probably find that this same set of skills and dispositions was not useful—and maybe even detrimental—to your success in your new social scenario.

Habitus also extends to our “taste” for cultural objects such as art, food, and clothing. In one of his major works, Distinction, Bourdieu links French citizens’ tastes in art to their social class positions, forcefully arguing that aesthetic sensibilities are shaped by the culturally ingrained habitus. Upper-class individuals, for example, have a taste for fine art because they have been exposed to and trained to appreciate it since a very early age, while working-class individuals have generally not had access to “high art” and thus haven’t cultivated the habitus appropriate to the fine art “game.” The thing about the habitus, Bourdieu often noted, was that it was so ingrained that people often mistook the feel for the game as natural instead of culturally developed. This often leads to justifying social inequality, because it is (mistakenly) believed that some people are naturally disposed to the finer things in life while others are not.

Field
Along with Bourdieu’s notion of a “feel for the game” came his theory of the game itself. Bourdieu understood the social world as being divided up into a variety of distinct arenas or “fields” of practice like art, education, religion, law, etc., each with their own unique set of rules, knowledges, and forms of capital. While fields can certainly overlap—education and religion, for example, overlap in many religiously-based colleges and universities in the United States—Bourdieu sees each field as being relatively autonomous from the others. Each field has its own set of positions and practices, as well as its struggles for position as people mobilize their capital to stake claims within a particular social domain. In art, for example, Bourdieu noticed that each generation of artists sought to overturn the established positions of those who came before them, only to be critiqued by the next generation of “avant-garde” artists who sought their own powerful positions within the field. Much like a baseball or football field, social fields are places where people struggle for position and play to win.

Cultural Marxism is not a political system. Critical Theory is not meant to run a country, it's meant to destroy it. It's a war strategy

Groups like LBGT, Black Lives Matter etc etc, are playing to win, they're being Capitalist, and Soros is helping them.

It's a Capitalist battle of the fittest concept, sure there's a struggle to reach the top, never mind equality, but that social rat race is a Capitalist behaviour.

Wanting to have a sex change at a young age, it's getting one's agenda put into practice, they grasp the opportunity with both hands, they use the 'free market' concept for their cultural Capitalist strong will to win, for changing their gender, they're using the will to compete to fulfil their personal preferences, they're adding their agenda to the Capitalist rat race ....

Drug taking won't exist on any sort of large scale without drug dealing to support it.

Drug dealing is all about making a profit up against the risk of getting caught and failing, again, it's Capitalism. it's climbing up the socioeconomic ladder....

I guess those girls having abortions are just taking advantage of the free market culture that Capitalism brings, I wonder how many of them just didn't think they could afford to have a child, but I guess maybe they watched some of that highly profitable porn and felt a bit raunchy, just sort of got carried away with all the glamour and profit, and had a lapse of reaoson, but ho-hum, at least they can say that they'll survive easier in the present paradigm without a child to support and go line someone's pocket in an abortion clinic.

cultural marxism is a fraud.

The elites cannot win the battle of economic populism so what they have done is to manipulate the public away from economic populism and to focus on CULTURAL POPULISM.

Therefore instead of united working class solidarity to attack the interests of the oligarchsl, they then turn on each other in a culture war.

The plebs fight each other rather than the oligarchs. Its called divide and conquer.

Instead of the plebs demanding a greater share of the economy from the oligarchs, they are fighting each other over whether or not we say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" The elites dont give a fuck about any of this but are happy we fight over such nonsense. :D

This is where "Cultural marxism" fraud comes into play. It is the bogeyman of the right wing. It is their enemy in the Culture war.

Again instead of right wingers attacking the oligarchs, they attack "liberals" and "progressives" "muslims" "immigrants"

The threat is not psychopathic Billionaire eugenecist oligarchs, the threat is now "social justice warriors" :facepalm:

Anybody who cannot see the stupidity of all of this and how the elites use this kind of culture war to manipulate the public, is just a useful idiot and will be used as a pawn in their game.

They're just pawns, useful idiots, foot soldiers in the revolution to tear down western civilization. We're in stage 3 of subversion, Crisis. Stage 4 is Normalization. That's when the pawns get eliminated and we enter the New Soviet State. And it will not be the Utopia you're dreaming of

Civil rights marches/demonstrations aren't really about equality per se, they're about having the same starting point as the majority for their place in the rat race, it's all this group against that group, divide divide divide, LBGT wouldn't even exist as a protest unless it was existing within this Cultural Capitalist environment, they feel they need to compete, each group treading on the other as the jostle for social positioning.

We're all in the Capitalist clamber.

In the Socialist State drug taking/selling will be punished by death. But in the first stages of subversion it's encouraged by the Left

Go down your local street and ask how many businesses would operate on a non-profit operation?

You'd be lucky to find one, Western Culture is based on making profit, Capitalism and business foundation is about getting other people to do the labour whilst the owners sit on their yachts drinking champagne.

The culture of Marxism if primarily about getting rid of Capitalism/profit and using other people's labour to line the pockets of fat cats, which is exactly what we now have in The West and have had for a very long time.

In fact Marx failed, Capitalism is rife, it's everywhere, all over the msm, all over politics, all over manufacturing, banking, arms sales. films, music, art, sport, it's all about the 'fee market' making a handsome profit, and having a Capitalist culture.

What Rocco is doing is blaming the failures of Capitalist culture onto Marxism, but we don't have Marxism as a culture, or nobody would be making a profit.

I've proven we're not living in a Marxist (non-profit) culture, we're living in a Capitalist (profit) culture and all the degeneracy that you blame on Marx is misplaced because it's existing in the present Capitalist paradigm, you're simply trying to shift the blame because you can't handle the truth.

As far as upholding your lies and sleight of hand, you've failed dismally, which was your job, you're just no good at it.
