What can we do to combat Marxist-Leninist cultural infiltration and subversion Gramsci-style?
If unchecked, is there a point of no return, where it's too late to try to do anything?
If a society is totally taken over, what can we do to take it back?

"Why is it that we must often suffer a way of thinking that attempts to coerce us intellectually? Look around. How many times have you heard: you must not be "judgmental" or "intolerant." What does that mean in Gramscian terms? It means: You must accept our values and not argue. If you do not you are out of the mainstream. Remember the Gramscian objective of turning their ideas into "common sense"?
"Do you now understand why we have political correctness? Why we have neighborhood groups that look more like agitation and propaganda entities than neighborhood associations? Why we have schools that push a peculiar curriculum and ignore parents, school budgets that make available funds for incredible courses, and teachers' unions that often do not appear to represent teachers' true interests. Why we have churches that have become political discourse centers? Why we have myriad civil associations with goals that appear to be destructive and divisive? Why we have mass media that often operate as propaganda machines rather than reporters of events?"

The success of the Gramscian cultural assault upon America was attested to by Michael Walzer in the Winter 1996 issue of the Marxist journal Dissent. As evidence that the revolutionary left is winning the "Gramscian 'war of position,' " Walzer approvingly cited, among other developments: "The visible impact of feminism." "The effects of affirmative action." "The emergence of gay rights politics, and ... the attention paid to it in the media." "The acceptance of cultural pluralism." "The transformation of family life," including "rising divorce rates, changing sexual mores, new household arrangements -- and, again, the portrayal of all this in the media." "The progress of secularization; the fading of religion in general and Christianity in particular from the public sphere -- classrooms, textbooks, legal codes, holidays, and so on." "The virtual abolition of capital punishment." "The legalization of abortion." "The first successes in the effort to regulate and limit the private ownership of guns."
All of these developments, Walzer admitted, were imposed upon our society by "liberal elites," rather than being driven "by the pressure of a mass movement or a majoritarian party." These changes, Walzer observed, "reflect the leftism or liberalism of lawyers, judges, federal bureaucrats, professors, school teachers, social workers, journalists, television and screen writers -- not the population at large."
"Consider onetime student radical Gerry Kirk, whose vita included membership in the SDS, the Black Panthers, the Communist Party, and other subversive organizations. In 1970, one year after his break with the Communist Party, Kirk presented testimony to the House and Senate Internal Security panels regarding the conspiracy's "scissors strategy" at work: "Young people have no conception of the conspiracy's strategy of pressure from above and pressure from below. ... They have no idea that they are playing into the hands of the Establishment they claim to hate. The radicals think they're fighting the forces of the super rich, like Rockefeller and Ford, and they don't realize that it is precisely such forces which are behind their own revolution, financing it, and using it for their own purposes."
"In a 1967 Science magazine essay, population control advocate Kinglsey Davis noted that "the conditions that cause births to be wanted or unwanted are beyond the control of family planning ... the social structure and economy must be changed before a deliberate reduction in the birthrate can be achieved." According to Davis, "changes basic enough to affect motivation for having children would be changes in the structure of the family, in the position of women and in the sexual mores." He also suggested that governments could manipulate the tax structure to discourage marriage (creating the so-called "marriage penalty"), and that "women could be required to work outside the home, or compelled by circumstances to do so." In a 1969 memo (which was published in the October 1970 issue of Family Planning Perspectives), Planned Parenthood Vice President Frederick Jaffe elaborated upon Davis's blueprint for a eugenicist social revolution. The memo grouped possible "fertility control" options into four categories: "Social Constraints," "Economic Deterrents/Incentives," "Social Controls," and "Housing Policies." The category of "Social Constraints" included the "Compulsory education of children," the encouragement of "increased homosexuality," the restructuring of the family by altering the "image of the ideal family" and encouraging women to work outside the home, and -- if all else failed -- the placement of "fertility control agents in [the] water supply."
While mass sterilization has not -- yet -- been carried out, all of the other elements of this blueprint have been."
