Excerpt from an inspiring speech by great theorist Antonio Gramsci.

This is interesting as fuck. Will have to add to the reading list. (Suggestions?)

I’m slowly delving through him via the copy of his prison notebooks I have (I’ve got a book with notebooks 6, 7 and 8 in it) which is meant to be the best for talk on hegemony.  Apparently there’s a selected works version out there as well, but I’m not sure where I’d say is the best place to start.  His work on hegemony is what really interests me, and a lot of his notebooks aren’t yet translated.

kvltmarx:

Critical Theory seeks to instill a widespread cultural pessimism about the family in order to promote the ideals of a Marxist revolution. To that end: the following themes should be promoted as much as possible.

FATHERS, should be denigrated as:

Dominant, Restrictive, Depersonalized, Controlling

MOTHERS, should be denigrated as:

Schizophrenic, Nagging, Anxious, Psycho.

THE FAMILY, should be attacked in the following ways:

1. Families are boring, stifling, and intrusive.

2. Mothers and Fathers suck.

3. Divorce is therefore understandable and justified and should be made easy.

KVLT MARX HAS ALREADY DESTROYED 50% OF MARRIAGES. EFFORTS MUST CONTINUE TO ERADICATE THIS INSTITUTION ENTIRELY.

Hide yo kids, hide yo wife?

This song is really about Gramsci and the defence against his “cultural marxism”.

KVLT MARX – Cultural Marxism: THE “TWO PUNCH” STRATEGY

Fortunately, Mussolini recognized the danger Gramsci posed and jailed him.

Actual quote from article on “cultural Marxism” (via digitalpidgin)

Gotta love it.  Starts off by quoting the quote that Gramsci never created, “long march through the institutions” than then following it up by lauding a fascist as the defender of Christian values.

With bedfellows like that you’ve got to wonder exactly what Christian values these are that were being upheld …

Sometimes i watch things like this and convulse with laughter…

Also way to vilify Gramsci for being arrested by fascists… wtg conservatives!

How to completely misrepresent and misunderstand Gramsci, as only the far right can.

Sometimes I wonder I shouldn’t post more on the subject of hegemony to cut through the absolute nonsense that floats around regarding it.
