Critical Race Theory threatens to tear the United States apart.
‘Woke’ ideas on university campuses once considered absurd have spilled out into the American mainstream. Government agencies, corporate HR departments – even the Pentagon – are in thrall to a radical Left-wing ideology.
So, what exactly is Critical Race Theory, and how can we counter it?
Critical Race Theory (or CRT) is a branch of Marxist ideology. The world, according to Karl Marx, was divided between bourgeoise capitalists and workers, with the former ruthlessly exploiting the latter. The world’s ills, Marx’s followers suggested, would be resolved once the latter seized power from the former. Except, of course, far from creating a workers’ paradise, Marxism killed tens of millions.
CRT adopts the Marxist mindset, but instead of seeing the world as being divided into a hierarchy of class, sees it as being about race.
Critical Race Theory encourages Americans to obsess about race and search for slights, rather than civility. America was founded on the idea that each individual possesses ‘inalienable rights. The new Marxists prefer us to define ourselves according to immutable characteristics.
