How the Left managed to transform Western societies by subversion

By A.S.

The New Left, which was born out of the ideas of Frankfurt School, and was implemented by the so-called ideas of 1968, referring to the student riots of that year in France and elsewhere, has managed to take over almost all of the opinion molding and important institutions in the West, especially mass media, universities, and other educational institutions, and political institutions as well.

The values and beliefs of previous generations are today deemed inappropriate and politically incorrect, while the views, which were considered part of radical and extremist leftist movements are becoming the “new normal”, and are widely accepted even by the regular people who don’t consider themselves as necessary political persons. The Left managed to present its ideological false conclusions and liberal worldviews as a part of universal moral values. This transformation of Western societies was not achieved through violent revolutions or by political means alone, but by subversive tactics of infiltration.

The well-known Chinese strategist Sun Tzu has defined subversion in the following points:

  1. Cover with ridicule all of the valid traditions in your opponent’s country.
  2. Implicate their leaders in criminal affairs and turn them over to the scorn of their populace at the right time.
  3. Disrupt the work of their government by every means;
  4. Do not shun the aid of the lowest and most despicable individuals of your enemy’s country.
  5. Spread disunity and dispute among the citizens.
  6. Turn the young against the old.
  7. Be generous with promises and rewards to collaborators and accomplices.

Here are some of the tactics used by the Left in the decades after the Second World War in the West:

  1. Corrupt the young, get them interested in sex, take them away from religion. Make them superficial and enfeebled.
  2. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial issues of no importance.
  3. Destroy people’s faith in their national leaders by holding the latter up for contempt, ridicule, and disgrace.
  4. Always preach democracy, but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
  5. By encouraging government extravagances, destroy its credit, produce years of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.
  6. Incite unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders, and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of the government towards such disorders.
  7. Cause breakdown of the old moral virtues: honesty, sobriety, self-restraint, faith in the pledged word.

One of the main influences of the Frankfurt School was an Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci who, when contemplating why the revolution in Italy was unsuccessful, came to a conclusion that if a movement wants to win political power, it must first change the culture and the society, and of course to substitute old traditional values and morals with new morals and values that are in accordance with its own beliefs. This is what we have witnessed in the West with the help of the outlined subversive tactics. Today the Left is in control of the mainstream media and educational, as well as many political institutions, but the new right and various identitarian movements have themselves started work in the realm of culture and metapolitics, not by subversion, but by introducing the alternative to the increasingly totalitarian political correct leftist worldviews.
