Origin of Political Correctness

How the Left creates and maintains the Narrative, from the Marxist Frankfurt School to the takeover of academia and the development of Critical Theory, all in a handy, engaging discussion from Bill Whittle:

Read all about the hideous Frankfurt School here. Note it became affiliated with Columbia University in 1935, and the infection of higher education in the US was complete. Here is just one example of how art, music, and all "studies" programs at universities have been corrupted or created with malice aforethought by these Marxist thinkers:
Philosophy of modern music Adorno, a trained musician, wrote The Philosophy of Modern Music (1949), in which he, in essence, polemicizes against beauty itself ― because it has become part of the ideology of advanced capitalist society and the false consciousness that contributes to social domination. It hence contributes to the present sustainability of capitalism by rendering it "aesthetically pleasing" and "agreeable". Only avant-garde art and music may preserve the truth by capturing the reality of human suffering. Hence: "[...]Musical language is polarized according to its extreme; towards gestures of shock resembling bodily convulsions on the one hand, and on the other towards a crystalline standstill of a human being whom anxiety causes to freeze in her tracks [...] Modern music sees absolute oblivion as its goal. It is the surviving message of despair from the shipwrecked." This view of modern art as producing truth only through the negation of traditional aesthetic form and traditional norms of beauty because they have become ideological is characteristic of Adorno and of the Frankfurt School generally.
The higher education bubble can't burst soon enough!

Collectivism predated the Frankfurt Scool. It had already become entrenched in the United States by the 1930s. The process had started with the "Progressive" era. (You can think of the "Progressive" era as a time when a self-styled elite tried to turn the United States into a fake European nation.) The standards of the 1930s said "these people are the wave of the future" and that turned the Frankfurt School from mere cranks into the shapers of young skulls full of mush.

Yes indeed, Progressives were already making structural "progress" with the 16th and 17th amendments, both ratified in 1913, giving us the federal income tax and direct election of Senators (kneecapping States' rights); both serious blows to the Republic. It only got worse over time.
