The family as a barrier to the triumph of cultural Marxism


Traditional family and marriage is based on Judeo-Christian culture in Europe. It has been subject to attacks by Marxist forces for decades. In my presentation, I focus on the origins, background, and consequences of these ideological threats to date.

The family, as the most basic unit of society, is the primary field of socialization. We also learn about women’s and men’s roles, traditions, culture and religion from our parents and grandparents for the first time. As a result, the survival of a nation and culture may depend on the proper transmission of our core values to the next generation. Today both families and Western civilization are in crisis: one, if not the main reason, is that cultural Marxism is taking deeper and deeper roots in societies.

Representatives of cultural Marxism, who replace economic items with theories derived from sociological, psychological, and other social sciences, see traditional families and Christian values as the main enemy, as the barrier to the triumph of Marxism. Its primary goal is to undermine and destroy these traditional pillars, so as to pave the way for left-wing power aspirations by creating a new, postmodern value system.

In the process feminists and LGBT communities were helpful to representatives of cultural Marxism, and they still support it by their efforts. It is no coincidence that “gender equality” and excessive discrimination against homosexuals and transgender people are commonplace in the public discourse of Western societies today. This process can also be seen in Hungary: LGBT organizations belonging to the Open Society Network have recently launched a campaign entitled “Family is family”.

There is only one weapon against left-wing Marxism, and that is to restore the social dignity of traditional marriage and family in Western civilization. To this end, in my opinion, it is also necessary to inform the widest possible audience about the theories, aspirations and manipulations of cultural Marxism.
