Neoconservatism’s Trotskyist Origin

The first neocons were former Trotskyist college students who loitered at the U-shaped stall called Alcove #1 adjacent the cafeteria at City College during the mid-1930s. The PBS documentary Arguing the World focused on the movement’s four most renowned ideological founders: Irving Kristol (father of Bill, once investigated by the FBI under suspicion of collaborating with the Soviet Union), Nathan Glazer, Irving Howe (who recruited Irving to the Trotskyist cause), and Daniel Bell; while the far larger cadre of communist students could be located at Alcove #2, which included Julius Rosenberg, later executed following his conviction of spying on behalf of the Soviet Union. The Alcove #1 comrades were anti-Stalinists. Kristol explained he learned to think and theorize from the Trotskyites primarily through the works of James Burnham, Max Schachtman and Leon Trotsky himself — and this dissident intellectualism, many claim, drove the Alcove #1 cadre rightward in subsequent years.

The Orthodox Church and Holy Russia Since the Bolshevik Revolution

Whether Kirill paints Orthodox Russia as a bastion of true faith besieged by the false values and secular immorality of an increasing godless, pagan West, his words are deeply appreciated by both the church and state as evidenced by the West’s embrace of homosexuality through transgenderism and same-sex marriage. Now well into the third millennium, it is ‘Holy Russia’ that again must confront an increasingly Godless, decadent West as it had with Napoleon. And now it is Putin, not Kirill, warning that “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan.” Thus it is irrelevant to haggle over whether Putin and his oligarch inner-circle literally believe in the religious rhetoric since they act as if they do. What must be examined is whether the solidly Orthodox foundation undergirding this new Russian nationalism also ensures that powerful right-wing ideologues like Alexander Dugin will happily rally around Putin and his not-so-ex-KGB clique. In digressing, the survival and indeed, flourishing of Christianity against all odds in the USSR is acknowledged by most of the international community, including many Soviet citizens. But killing people in the name of equality is not the same as attempting to kill God; one cannot kill an idea or basic moral principles taught by Eastern Orthodox Christianity having dominated the Slavs for over 1,000 years. Whether or not Western Europe, as formerly dominated by the Catholic Church, continues to secularize under a left-wing liberal agenda weaponizing political correctness to perpetuate a climate of terror to usher in a Utopian world ‘equality’, one matter is certain: God outlasted the atheist Soviet Union and the occultist Nazi Germany.

Critical Theory: The Driver of Global Sovietization Through Climate Change and Cultural Marxism

Communism did not die after the fall of the Soviet Union. Critical Theory never abandons Marxism, given capitalist modernity remains the penultimate stage to building socialism. Rather, Critical Theory is intended to be the process of sovietization by other means — the sewing of what Marxism had last cut off in 1989 — by these new “watermelon” Marxists falsely peddling climate change’s “settled science” (the Green movement) and cultural Marxism.
