Listen to the case of a man so railroaded by a corrupt judicial system and good ole boys network that it will literally turn your stomach. While you do peruse the update below. If we as a people do not stand for each-other, no one will be left to stand for us when this occurs.
A FULL UPDATE of this INSANE Corruption -

On March 21, 2018, Kenai grand juror Ray Southwell tried to disclose, to the other grand jurors, his reason to believe crimes were committed that were triable by the court. Grand juror Southwell also tried to disclose, to the other jurors, his reasons to believe that the public welfare and safety was in danger.
Kenai District Attorney Scot Leaders refused to allow grand juror Southwell to disclose his reasons to the rest of the grand jurors. DA Leaders then asked Kenai Superior Court Judge Jennifer Wells to order grand juror Southwell not to ever disclose his reasons to the other jurors.
Judge Wells, in a closed and locked courtroom, personally told grand juror Southwell that he was permanently prohibited from disclosing his reasons to the other jurors – even after it was revealed some information he wished to share with the other grand jurors was evidence that DA Leaders had committed felony crimes to convict defendants and to later cover this up.
Additional information grand juror Southwell wished to disclose to the other jurors included evidence that the Alaska Commission on Judicial Conduct (and its sole 28-year judge investigator Marla Greenstein) is falsifying official investigations so corrupt judges, against whom valid complaints have been made, can continue to sit in judgement on we the people. This information also included evidence ACJC/Greenstein falsified certified documents to keep everything covered up and evidence that judges across the state – Homer, Kenai, Anchorage, McGrath, etc. – have committed felony crimes the ACJC/Greenstein covered up.
We believe DA Leaders and Judge Wells committed felony crimes of jury tampering and obstruction of justice when they prevented grand juror Southwell from disclosing, to the other jurors, his reasons to believe DA Leaders, ACJC/Greenstein, and other officials have committed felony crimes against the public and are now working together to keep this covered up.
Our belief is based on Alaska Statute 12.40.040, which simply states:
Alaska Statute 12.40.040“If an individual grand juror knows or has reason to believe that a crime has been committed that is triable by the court, the juror shall disclose it to the other jurors, who shall investigate it.”
Additional proof that grand juror Southwell had a right, and by law a duty, to present his reasons to the other grand jurors, is described below in Alaska’s Constitution and in the Alaska Judicial Council report “The Investigative Grand Jury in Alaska”
On Saturday, April 21, starting at 10 am in the Soldotna Reginal Sports Complex (Sports Center), Mr. Southwell will present the evidence he was prevented from presenting to his fellow grand jurors. We humbly beg everyone possible attend to look at, listen to, and question the evidence as if they themselves were grand jurors. If people are persuaded there is merit and/or reason, we will ask they sign a petition demanding the governor, legislature, and/or courts convene a special grand jury with statewide jurisdiction tasked solely with investigating Alaska’s judicial system - starting with the evidence grand juror Southwell was prevented from presenting to his fellow jurors - with former federal prosecutor Henry F. Schuelke (who conducted the corruption investigation into Senator Ted Stevens’ prosecution) as the special grand jury’s legal counsel. A like special grand jury was convened to investigate Watergate. It indicted 69 people.
Without doubt, the grand jury’s right to investigate government wrongdoing independently of the district attorney/government is the tool we have looked so long for to address the corruption growing within Alaska’s judicial system.
On Friday, April 6 at 4 pm Mr. Southwell and I will be a guest on KSRM’s 920 AM radio program “Bird’s Eye View” (streamed at “”) to talk about what has occurred and to invite everyone to the Soldotna Sports Center on April 21 to see the evidence. Please listen in.
We could use help paying for the Sports Complex rental, refreshments (water, soda), etc. But where we really need help is in getting the word out. Forward this email on to everyone you possibly can. Make and forward posts to every Facebook, Twitter, etc. group you can. If you can distribute flyers (we are working on them or you can make your own) let us know. Write and submit notices to the papers. Call radio programs. Anything you can think of.
I was tased 10 times in Anchorage Superior Court solely to prevent me from submitting the physical evidence proving the above corruption in Alaska’s judicial system – evidence written law clearly allowed me to present. The law was again violated to prevent grand juror Southwell from presenting this same evidence to his fellow grand jurors. What are they afraid of?
Believing there is no problem or that it doesn’t affect them, most people will not want to get involved or even attend the Sports Complex meeting. But if we don’t do something this problem will grow and eventually affect all of us. To those who don’t believe this is a very real problem, this is long-time Soldotna attorney Dale Dolifka’s sworn testimony in open court about my prosecution – after he looked at the evidence Mr. Southwell and I have been trying to present:
“Other than just an outright payoff of a judge or jury it is hard to imagine anyone being sold down the river more. Your case has shades of Selma in the 60’s, where judges, sheriffs, & even assigned lawyers were all in cahoots together. The reason why you have still not resolved your legal problems is corruption. You have a [Appeals] Court sitting there looking at a pile of dung & if they do right by you & reveal you know you have the attorneys going down, you have the judges going down, you have the troopers going down. Everyone in your case has had a political price to pay if they did right by you. You had a series of situations which everyone was doing things to protect everyone rather than you because there was a price to pay. I walked over here & lawyer A says my God they’re violating every appeal rule ever. How can it be like this? I think almost everyone goes back to that original seminal issue that how the hell did this case go on when it appears to lay people & to me a lot of it was built on a lie in a sworn affidavit? I don’t know how you possibly had due process with regard to the seizure of your airplane. I have read it and read it and read it. I could write a doctor’s brief on it. And I -- I can’t -- and I’m just wore out trying to figure it out because I can’t. You’re just one of many. It’s absolute unadulterated self-bred corruption. It will get worse until the sleeping giant [public] wakes up. Everyone is scared & afraid.” [Court Record 00523-3105]

Article 1, Section 8 of the Alaska Constitution“The power of grand juries to investigate and make recommendations concerning the public welfare or safety shall never be suspended.”
 Alaska Statute 12.40.030“The grand jury shall inquire into all crimes committed or triable by the court and present them to the court. The grand jury shall have the power to investigate and make recommendations concerning the public welfare or safety.”
Alaska Statute 12.40.040“If an individual grand juror knows or has reason to believe that a crime has been committed that is triable by the court, the juror shall disclose it to the other jurors, who shall investigate it.”
Alaska Statute 12.40.060: “The grand jury is entitled to access, at all reasonable times, to the public jails and prisons, to offices pertaining to the courts of justice in the state, and to all other public offices, and to the examination of all public records in the state.”

The Investigative Grand Jury in Alaska
(Alaska Judicial Council 1987, Marla Greenstein research attorney)
 The [Alaska grand jury] oath clearly includes the duty to investigate “matters” coming to the knowledge of the grand jury independently of the charges presented by a prosecutor. One Alaska statute provides that “If an individual grand juror knows or has reason to believe that a crime has been committed which is triable by the court, the juror shall disclose it to the other jurors, who shall investigate it.” This provision suggests that an investigation might be initiated at the request of an individual grand juror.
 Art. I, Sec. 8 of the Alaska Constitution states: “The power of grand juries to investigate and make recommendations concerning the public welfare or safety shall never be suspended.”
“Public welfare or safety” has been interpreted very broadly and includes concerns with public order, health, or morals. Black’s Law Dictionary defines general welfare as “the governments concern for the health, peace, morals, and safety of its citizens.” “Suspend” is defied in case law and by Black’s as “to cause to cease for a time; to postpone; to stay, delay or hinder.” In other words, the Alaska Constitution gives grand juries the power to investigate into and make recommendations addressing virtually anything of public concern. This broad general power can never be hindered or delayed.
Just as grand juries in Alaska are constitutionally empowered to investigate any matter of public concern, so are they free to report on their findings. Indeed, there is no law in Alaska preventing grand jury reports from naming names, recommending referral to government or private agencies or alleging indictable conduct.
Counsel may be provided by the attorney general or the grand jury may choose to be represented by other counsel.
The grand juries of the colonies, in addition to screening prosecutions, exercised their powers to investigate criminal activity and “as spokesmen for the people, sounding boards for their leaders, and vehicles for complaints against officialdom.”
State Grand Jury Investigatory Powers    
State grand juries have often exercised investigative powers to battle political corruption. At times, they have acted on their own initiative in the face of opposition from a district attorney:
In New York City, in 1872, an extensive grand jury probe toppled the notorious Boss Tweed and his cronies. Since the district attorney was closely associated with Tweed, the panel acted independently of him, conducting its own investigation and interviewing witnesses without the prosecutor’s help.
In Minneapolis, in 1902, a grand jury hired its own private detectives and amassed evidence sufficient to indict the mayor and cause the chief of police to resign. After removing these officials, the grand jury acted as a committee of public safety and effectively governed the city. Five years later, in San Francisco, a grand jury indicted the mayor and named a new reform mayor to run the city.
State Grand Jury Reporting Powers   
The number of grand juries that have issued reports is very small when compared to the number of grand juries that have met to consider criminal cases and have issued indictments or no-true-bills.


             Alaska’s grand jury serves two distinct functions. First, it acts as the charging body for crimes committed within its jurisdiction. The grand jury considers evidence presented to it by the state’s district attorney who has investigated the crime or crimes in each case.
Although infrequent, the grand jury can also sit as an investigative body. In response to instructions from the court or the district attorney, or in response to petitions or requests from the public, or on the initiative of a majority of the members of the grand jury, the grand jury may investigate concerns affecting the public welfare or safety. These public welfare or safety concerns may arise from criminal or potentially criminal activity, or they may involve noncriminal public welfare or safety matters. After completing its investigation, if the grand jury has found sufficient evidence to charge an individual or individuals with a crime, the grand jury may ask the district attorney to prepare an indictment or indictments.
The law is unclear as to whether or under what circumstances the grand jury may also file a report. When the grand jury, acting in its investigative role, does not find evidence to warrant indictment, the practice of grand juries has been to issue reports to the court summarizing the findings and conclusions of the investigation. Grand jurors are authorized by law to make recommendations although the nature and scope of these recommendations are not defined.
The importance of the investigative function, however, has not been questioned. While half the states have abolished or severely restricted the grand jury’s charging function, all states have retained the investigative function of the grand jury.
Source of Investigative Power in Alaska
The Alaska Constitution addresses grand juries in Article I, Section 8:
No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand juryThe power of grand juries to investigate and make recommendations concerning the public welfare or safety shall never be suspended. (Emphasis added.)
The legislative history of the clause speaking to the investigative function suggests that this function was very important in the minds of the delegates to the constitutional convention, and that the scope of this power was intended to be broad.
Constitutional Convention
The Committee on the Preamble and Bill of Rights of the Alaska Constitutional Convention submitted a proposal entitled “Grand Juries, Indictments and Information”. The clause that addressed the investigative function read:
…the power of grand juries to inquire into the willful misconduct in office of public officers, and to find indictments in connection therewith, shall never be suspended.
The commentary of the section stated: “The grand jury is preserved, for all purposes, particularly for investigation of public officials.”
An amendment was proposed to make prosecution by grand jury indictment mandatory unless waived, as had been practice under territorial law. Proponents of the change in the committee proposal argued that the grand jury was not the best charging mechanism. All delegates, however, appear to have supported the continuation of the investigative role of the grand jury:
Now we had preserved the investigative power of the grand jury…(Buckalew, 1323)
The grand jury once a year investigates the jails (under territorial law) and sometimes is useful where any particular fraud or general scandal has occurred…(Rivers, 1323)
…I am against the use of a grand jury in criminal prosecution…I would say retain the grand jury all right for investigative purposes of officials in public institutions…it serves no useful purpose except for just investigative purposes. (Taylor, 1324)
The grand jury should certainly and definitely be preserved as an investigatory agency. There is no question about it at all…(Hellenthal, 1325)
The debate suggests that some votes for mandatory grand jury indictment may have been cast to assure free exercise of the grand jury’s investigative function:
…[I]t is true the investigative grand jury had been preserved in the bill as set forth here. However, an investigative grand jury will only be called under certain specific circumstances, and somebody is going to have to find conditions pretty bad before an investigative grand jury will be called. Whereas a grand jury which is empaneled regularly, once or twice a year in our division, has full investigative power as well as the power to consider indictments. The grand jury is there and may take any step that it feels may be necessary towards investigations.(Davis, 1326)
…The grand jury in its investigative power as well as for the fact that it is sitting there as a panel sometimes is the only recourse far a citizen to get justice…(Kilcher, 1328)
The new amendment does not make any mention of the investigating powers of the grand jury, and I have been told they would still have those powers under the Federal Constitution, but I believe it should be mentioned in our constitution because I think that is one of the most important duties of the grand jury. (Barr, 1344)
The delegate speaking suggested returning to the language in the initial Committee proposal that referred to the grand jury’s investigative powers:
The power of grand juries to inquire into the willful misconduct in office of public officers, and to find indictments in connection therewith, shall never be suspended.
When the subject of investigative powers rose again, the language proposed was somewhat different. The new suggested language read:
The power of grand juries to investigate and make recommendations concerning conditions detrimental to the public welfare or safety shall never be suspended. (1344)
               A delegate who spoke in support of the expansion of investigatory powers made an additional suggestion:
Mr. President, my suggestion was that the word “detrimental” be stricken and the word “involving” be inserted because I agree with Mr. Barr that the investigatory power of a grand jury is extremely broad, not narrow as Mr. Rivers contends. I think a grand jury can investigate anything, and it is true that there is little protection against what they call in the vernacular, a runaway grand jury, but in the history of the United States there have been few runaway grand juries, extremely few, and I think that the broad statement of power that Mr. Barr asked for is proper and healthy. (Hellenthal, 1406)
This suggestion was adopted. The final amendment read:
The power of grand juries to investigate and make recommendations involving the public welfare or safety shall never be suspended.
As the language was incorporated into the constitution, the word “involving” became “concerning” but there is no discussion of this choice in the convention minutes.
Alaska Statutes
The Alaska Code of Criminal Procedure in Section 12.40.030 essentially repeats the Alaska Constitution’s language concerning grand jury powers:
Sec. 12.40.030. Duty of inquiry into crimes and general powers. The grand jury shall inquire into all crimes committed or triable within the jurisdiction of the court and present them to the court. The grand jury shall have the power to investigate and make recommendations concerning the public welfare or safety.
Two other sections of the code seem to speak to the intended subject matter and scope of the grand jury’s independent investigative powers:
Sec. 12.40.040. Juror to disclose knowledge of crime. If an individual grand juror knows or has reason to believe that a crime has been committed which is triable by the court, the juror shall disclose it to the other grand jurors, who shall investigate it.
Sec. 12.40.060. Access to public jails, prisons, and public records. The grand jury is entitled to access, at all reasonable times, to the public jails and prisons, to offices pertaining to the courts of justice in the state, and to all other public offices, and to the examination of all public records in the state.
The language of the first section above suggests that in addition to reviewing the cases presented by a prosecutor, the grand jury is empowered to investigate all criminal or potentially criminal activity that comes to the attention of one or more of its members. The use of the word “present” refers to the informal writing of charges by a grand jury.
The language of AS 12.40.060 suggests that the grand jury may have a special responsibility to monitor the public jails, offices pertaining to the courts of justice, and other public offices.
Alaska’s Criminal Rules hint at the potential investigative, recommending and reporting powers of the grand jury. Rule 6(e) mandates the oath for grand jurors. The current oath reads:
“You and each of you as members of the grand jury for the State of Alaska, do solemnly swear that you will diligently inquire and true presentment make of all such matters as shall be given to you for consideration, or shall otherwise come to your knowledge in connection with your preset service…”
The oath clearly includes the duty to investigate “matters” coming to the knowledge of the grand jury independently of the charges presented by a prosecutor.

Scope of Investigative Power as Exercised in Alaska
The clear intent of the drafters of the state constitution was to provide the grand jury with broad investigative powers. The language of state statutes is equally broad and no case law in Alaska defines the appropriate subject matter or scope of grand jury investigations.

(1) Complex criminal cases.
Interviewees noted that the grand jury's investigative powers were extremely useful in certain complex criminal cases. Examples of such cases included the 1974 Fairbanks grand jury investigation of a mob incident at the Tanana Valley Fairgrounds that resulted in injury to several persons; the 1970 Anchorage grand jury investigation of the Cordova fire; the investigation by an Anchorage grand jury in 1970 of the slaying by a police officer of two persons who were engaged in the commission of a felony; and complicated murder cases such as the Investor murders recently considered by a grand jury in Ketchikan.

(2) Patterns of crime.
A Fairbanks grand jury investigated the problem of drugs in Fairbanks high schools, after several instances of drug-related juvenile crime. In 1973, a grand jury, after recognizing the number of crimes being committed on campus, investigated security at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. A 1976 Fairbanks grand jury investigated the Checker cab Company after observing the extremely high incidence of felony incidents it had processed against Checker cab personnel. In January, 1986, a Bethel grand jury issued a report following an investigation into sexual abuse in that community, having noted the large number of sexual abuse cases being brought before them. Grand juries seem uniquely positioned to recognize patterns in criminal activity and to investigate the implications of these patterns.

(3) Alleged misconduct in state government.
Five investigations have been conducted into alleged misconduct in state government. A 1974 Fairbanks grand jury investigated alleged conflicts of interest by public officials in appropriating funds for the Fairbanks flood control project. In 1981 and 1982, grand juries in Juneau investigated unrelated charges of alleged misconduct by two state senators. In 1984, an Anchorage grand jury investigated potentially criminal practices related to property and inventory maintained by the Alaska Division of Fish and Wildlife Protection's Aircraft Section. Finally, a 1985 Juneau grand jury conducted an investigation into the executive branch's handling of state office leasing practices.
(4) Alleged misconduct in local government.
Two grand juries have investigated alleged misconduct in local government. In 1953, a Ketchikan grand jury conducted an investigation into alleged corruption in the Ketchikan police department [Ketchikan District Attorney and Ketchikan Police Chief indicted in connection with prostitution]. A Kenai grand jury in 1973-74 consideredallegations of improper conduct by municipal officials and allegedly inappropriate conduct of a judge.
   (5) Potentially criminal activity affecting public welfare or safety concerns.
An Anchorage grand jury in 1964 investigated waste of game animals; in 1965, alleged irregularities in a local election; in 1966, the use of listening devices; in 1967, drug abuse by minors; and in 1969, the public exhibition of adult motion pictures. All of these subjects involved potential criminal activity, and clearly affected public welfare or safety concerns.
(6) Noncriminal (civil) investigation of criminal justice system.
Grand juries have investigated the effectiveness of police operations in Bethel in 1977 and 1983; and the operation of the jail in Barrow in 1983, following an escape. In Fairbanks and in Anchorage grand juries routinely have investigated the condition of the jails and related institutions virtually every year until the early 1970s.
(7) Noncriminal (civil) investigation of conditions affecting public welfare or safety.
A few investigations have arisen in totally civil contexts (in addition to the noncriminal evaluations of the criminal justice system's policies, practices, and facilities). In 1962 and 1964, Anchorage grand juries investigated traffic safety and road signs; in 1964, city zoning; and in 1965, water and sewer service.
                  Initiation: Law and Practice in Alaska
Statutory procedures in Alaska distinguish initiation of an investigation from the exercise of the grand jury's usual charging duties. In general, investigations are initiated by the district attorney. In the case of major investigations, the district attorney may request that a grand jury be empaneled to investigate that case alone. On occasion investigations have been called sua sponte by the judge sitting in the jurisdiction.
One Alaska statute provides that "If an individual grand juror knows or has reason to believe that a crime has been committed which is triable by the court, the juror shall disclose it to the other jurors, who shall investigate it.” This provision suggests that an investigation might be initiated at the request of an individual grand juror.
                  Routine safeguards have been exercised in Alaska. Judges and prosecutors have said that the majority of grand jurors, not counting the juror requesting the investigation, have had to vote to undertake any investigation. If the investigation has been taken up, the grand juror requesting it was excused from grand jury duty and called as a witness in the ensuing investigation.
Prosecutors interviewed in the course of this study noted that private citizens occasionally request the grand jury to investigate a matter. Prosecutors report that they ordinarily review these requests before presenting them to the grand jury and made a recommendation regarding the grand jury's action. The grand jury then decides by majority vote whether to initiate an investigation.

Source of Reporting Powers in Alaska
The Alaska Constitution states: "The power of grand juries to investigate and make recommendations concerning the public welfare or safety shall never be suspended.” (Emphasis added.) The language is repeated in Sec. 12.40.030 of the Alaska Statutes.
Reporting Powers of the Federal Government and Other States
A signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution and later an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, James Wilson, made this observation in 1791:
The grand jury are a great channel of communication, between those who make and administer the laws, and for whom the laws are made and administered. All the operations of government, and of its ministers and officers, are within the compass of their view and research. They may suggest publick improvement, and the modes of removing publick inconveniences: they may expose to publick inspection, or to publick punishment, publick bad men, and publick bad measures.
A 1965 Fifth Circuit case stated: "To me the thing [is] this simple: the Grand Jury is charged to report. It determines what it is to report.”
                  A sponsor of the 1970 Organized Crime Act commented during Congressional hearings about grand juries to be charged under it that:
... the precise boundaries of the reporting power have not been judicially delineated ... the authority to issue reports relevant to organized crime investigations has been specifically conferred upon the special grand juries created by this title. The committee does not thereby intend to restrict or in any way interfere with the right of regular grand juries to issue reports as recognized by judicial custom and tradition.
The Grand Jury
                       The grand jury exercises its charging function by deciding whether or not to indict. In the exercise of its investigative function, the grand jury is empowered to initiate investigations, to call witnesses, and to request that indictments be prepared.

The Historical Roots of Political Correctness

The Historical Roots of "Political Correctness"

by Raymond V. Raehn

America as a nation is now dominated by an alien system of beliefs, attitudes and values that has become known as Political Correctness. It seeks to impose a uniformity in thought and behavior among all Americans and is therefore totalitarian in nature. It has its roots in the ideology of Marxism which requires a radical inversion of the prevailing traditional culture by cultural Marxism in order to achieve a social revolution. Such a social revolution is the kind envisioned by Karl Marx as an inversion of the social order and a commensurate inversion of the structure of power.
Social revolution has a long history involving a number of disparate forces that have conceivably been inspired by Plato's Republic. But it was the French Revolution of 1789 that probably inspired Karl Marx to do what he did in the nineteenth century. In the twentieth century it was the success of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 in Russia that set off a wave of optimistic expectation among the Marxist forces in Europe and America that the new proletarian world of equality popularized by Karl Marx was finally coming into being as the wave of the future. Russia as the first communist nation in the world would lead the revolutionary forces to final victory.

The Marxist revolutionary forces in Europe could not restrain themselves. They leaped at this opportunity to lead the proletarian workers into the promised new world. There was a Communist Spartacist uprising in Berlin, Germany, led by Rosa Luxemburg; the creation of a Bavarian Soviet in Germany led by Kurt Eisner, and a Hungarian Soviet established by Bella Kun in 1919. At the time, there was great concern that all of Europe might soon fall under the banner of Bolshevism.
This sense of impending doom was given vivid life by Trotsky's Red Army invasion of Poland in 1919 that was expected to begin the triumphant conquest of all of Western Europe by Soviet Armed Forces allied with local communists in accordance with Lenin's plan.
While the Red Army's invasion was defeated by Polish forces at the baffle of the Vistula in 1920, the Spartacist, Bavarian Soviet and Hungarian Soviet all failed to gain widespread support of the workers and after a brief time they were all deposed by opposition forces. These events created a quandary for the Marxist revolutionaries in Europe. Under Marxist economic theory, the oppressed workers were supposed to be the beneficiaries of a social revolution that would place them on top of the structure of power. When the revolutionary opportunity presented itself, the workers did not respond. The Marxist revolutionaries did not blame their theory for these failures. They blamed the workers. They resolved their quandary by an analysis that focused on the cultural superstructure of society rather than on the economic substructure as Marx did. The Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci and the Hungarian Marxist Georg Lukacs contributed the most to this cultural Marxism.

Antonio Gramsci worked for the Communist International in the years 1923 to 1924 in Moscow and Vienna. He was later imprisoned in one of Mussolini's jails where he wrote his famous "Prison Notebooks" . Among Marxists, Gramsci is noted for his theory of cultural and ideological hegemony as the means of class dominance. His view that a new Communist man had to be made before any political revolution led to a focus on the efforts of the intellectuals in the fields of education and the culture to perform this task. This was to be a long march through the society's institutions, meaning the government, the judiciary, the military, the schools and the media. He also concluded that so long as the workers had a Christian soul, they would not respond to revolutionary appeals. Multiculturalism can be seen as a means of breaking the grip of the traditional cultural hegemony on American society.
Georg Lukacs was the son of a wealthy Hungarian banker who began his political life as a key Soviet agent of the Communist Intentional. His book History and Class Consciousness gained him recognition as the leading Marxist theorist since Karl Marx. And like Karl Marx his primary emotion was hatred. "I saw the revolutionary destruction of society as the one and only solution to the cultural contradictions of the epoch," was one of his expressed attitudes. In defending Bolshevism, Lukacs stated: "Such a worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries."
In 1919, Georg Lukacs became the Deputy Commissar for Culture in the Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary where he instigated what became known as Culture Terrorism. He launched an explosive sex education program. Special lectures were organized in Hungarian schools and literature printed and distributed to instruct children about free love, about the nature of sexual intercourse, about the archaic nature of the bourgeois family codes, about the outdatedness of monogamy, and the irrelevance of religion, which deprives man of all pleasures. Children urged thus to reject and deride paternal authority and the authority of the Church, and to ignore precepts of morality, easily and spontaneously turned into delinquents with whom only the police could cope. This call to rebellion addressed to Hungarian children was matched by a call to rebellion addressed to Hungarian women. This was a precursor to what Cultural Marxism would later bring into American schools.
In 1924, as a result of a meeting the year before attended by Georg Lukacs and other Marxist intellectuals associated with the Communist Party of Germany, there came to be founded the Institute of Social Research at Frankfurt University in Frankfurt, Germany. This Institute became known as the Frankfurt School. Its model was the Marx- Engels Institute in Moscow. The members of this Institute prepared numerous studies on the beliefs, attitudes and values they assumed led to the rise of German national socialism. These were critical studies that combined Marxist analysis with Freudian psychoanalysis. The sum of these critical studies became known as Frankfurt School "Critical Theory" .
Frankfurt School Critical Theory was essentially destructive criticism of the main elements of Western culture such as Christianity, capitalism, authority, the family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, sexual restraint, loyalties, patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism, convention and conservatism. These criticisms are reflected in such works of the Frankfurt School as Studies on Authority and the Family Erich Fromm's Escape From Freedom and his The Dogma of Christ, Wilhelm Reich's The Mass Psychology of Fascism and Theodor Adorno's The Authoritarian Personality published in 1950.
Frankfurt School Critical Theory encompasses a group of specific sub-theories such as matriarchal theory, androgyny theory, personality theory, prejudice theory, authority theory, family theory, sexuality theory, racial theory, legal theory and literary theory. These various sub-theories are used to induce an inversion of the prevailing belief system so the Marxist revolutionaries can engineer a non-violent social revolution. As the Marxist social revolutionaries readily proclaim among themselves, their avowed purpose is to destroy the hegemonic white male structure of power. This requires the inversion of beliefs of white males so that they feel impelled to relinquish their positions to women and minorities. This reflects the psycho-dynamics of social revolution that lies at the core of Political Correctness.
The belief in patriarchy is to be inverted to a belief in matriarchy in accordance with Frankfurt School matriarchal theory. The belief in distinct gender roles is to be inverted to a belief that distinct gender roles should not exist in accordance with Frankfurt School androgyny theory. The belief in inherent differences among the races is to be inverted to a belief that differences do not exist in accordance with Frankfurt School racial theory. The belief that the heterosexual is the norm is to be inverted to a belief that the homosexual is normal. Frankfurt School prejudice theory as presented in Theodor Adorno's The Authoritarian Personality had the intended effect of inverting the belief about racial discrimination. The belief that racial discrimination was a normal instinctive response to a perceived threat to the survival of the race was inverted to a belief that racial discrimination was evidence of a social pathology and a mental sickness in an individual. This Frankfurt School theory of prejudice was then applied to gender and sexual discrimination in the same way.
By its very nature, Frankfurt School Critical Theory amounted to a grand scheme for the inversion of the intrinsic worth of white heterosexual males that opened the intellectual door to the racial and sexual antagonisms of the Trotskyites, Herbert Marcuse and Betty Friedan. The expressed views of Leon Trotsky that were adopted by his Fourth International were especially revealing. Trotsky had denounced prejudiced white workers in scathing and bitter terms. He followed this with the assertion that due to the oppression of the Negroes they could become the most revolutionary element of the population and furnish the vanguard of the revolution. Trotsky demanded that the white workers assist the blacks in this revolution.
Most of the young student leaders of the 1960's counterculture revolution to a large extent followed the dictates of Leon Trotsky by attempting to elevate black revolutionaries to positions of leadership. Since the counterculture revolution of the 1960's was an attempt to invert the prevailing culture as the very name implies, acceptance of an inversion of white and black roles seemed logical to the student revolutionaries. These radical Marxists also followed Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfurt School who became the admired philosopher on the campuses of American colleges and universities in the 1960's with his advocacy of the women's and black revolutions.
As a Marxist revolutionary alumni of the Frankfurt School, Herbert Marcuse became a key practitioner of revolutionary theory in America. In 1947, he argued the case for a Soviet republic and welcomed anarchy disintegration and catastrophe to bring about revolutionary change. He preached the "Great Refusal "sexual liberation and the merits of the feminist and black revolutions. His primary thesis was that revolutionaries such as university students, ghetto blacks, the alienated and the asocial, and the Third World could take the place of the proletariat. In his book An Essay on Liberation. Herbert Marcuse proclaimed his aim of a radical transvaluation of values; the relaxation of taboo; cultural subversion; critical theory; and a linguistic rebellion that amounts to a methodical reversal of meaning. As for racial conflict, Marcuse wrote that it is true that the white man is guilty and that the black population appears as the most natural force of rebellion. The similarity to Leon Trotsky's mindset should be noted.
Another important revolutionary contributor to Political Correctness was Betty Friedan who promoted the modern feminist movement in America and Canada with her book The Feminine Mystique. In that book, she claimed the feminist movement was a sex-role revolution. This sex role inversion did indeed eventually take the form of the extreme demand for female combat soldiers and female fighter pilots which was duly complied with by the new American males. In her book, Betty Friedan devoted almost a full chapter to Abraham Maslow's theory of self-actualization. Maslow was a social psychologist who in his early years did research on female dominance and sexuality. Maslow was a friend of Herbert Marcuse at Brandeis University and had met with Erich Fromm in 1936. He was so impressed by Erich Fromm's Frankfurt School ideology that he wrote an article entitled "The Authoritarian Character Structure" published in 1944. This reflected the personality theory of Frankfurt School Critical Theory. Maslow was also impressed with the work of Wilhelm Reich who was another Frankfurt School originator of personality theory that became an integral part of Marxist ideology in America.
The significance of the historical roots of Political Correctness cannot be fully comprehended unless such a thing as Betty Friedan's sex-role revolution is viewed for what it really is--a manifestation of the social revolutionary process begun by Karl Marx himself. Her reliance on Abraham Maslow's reflection of Frankfurt School Marxist ideology is simply one indicator. The very idea of her sex-role inversion corresponds with Georg Lukacs' annihilation of old values and the creation of new ones by the Marxist revolutionaries and Herbert Marcuse's radical transvaluation of all values. But the very idea of transforming a patriarchy into a matriarchy which is what a sex-role inversion is designed to do, can be connected directly to Frederick Engel's book The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the Slate, first published in 1884, which popularized the currently adopted feminist belief that the deep-rooted discrimination against the oppressed female sex was a function of patriarchy.
The belief that matriarchy is the solution to patriarchy flows from Karl Marx's comments in his The German Ideology of 1845. It was in that document that Marx advanced the theory that wives and children were the first property of the patriarchal male which Engels elaborated in his book from notes made by Marx. The Frankfurt School's matriarchal theory and its related androgyny theory both originated from these sources. So there is a historical consistency to this sex aspect of the Marxist social revolution. There is another historical consistency to the racial aspect of the Marxist social revolution. Karl Marx had a revolutionary friend by the name of Moses Hess who had introduced him to communism. In 1 865, Moses Hess wrote the dictum in his book, Rome and Jerusalem that race struggle was to be primary. This could be seen as the inspirational source of the Frankfurt School's prejudice theory as well as the attitudes of Leon Trotsky and Herbert Marcuse on the subject.
There is another historical consistency to the Marxist social revolution that is related to the Frankfurt School's Critical Theory as destructive criticism. In his war plan of 1844 directed against the Prussian state, Karl Marx was more blunt about his use of ruthless criticism. It was to be a weapon to destroy. What he intended to destroy was the bourgeois middle class and so he related the means to do this by class warfare. Under his formula, the middle class bourgeoisie was to become the oppressing class in which the evils of society were to be concentrated and so regarded as the notorious crime of the whole society. The middle class was to be criminalized. This was the initial part of Karl Marx's social revolutionary process that was supposed to lead to the disintegration of the middle class. The similarity to Herbert Marcuse's use of the term "disintegration" should be noted. In 1969, Marcuse wrote in "The Carnivorous Society" that "what we must undertake is a type of diffuse and dispersed disintegration of the system."
It so happens that when the Frankfurt School's book The Authoritarian Personalty authored by Theodor Adorno, et al and edited by Max Horkheimer was published in 1950, it was a seminal event because of its substantial impact on American social psychologists and social scientists of the day. It was one of a series of books entitled Studies on Prejudice. It evolved from a simplified formula developed by the Frankfurt School in Europe. Christianity plus capitalism plus the patriarchal authoritarian family created a type of character that was prone to racial prejudice and German fascism. After the Frankfurt School group of social revolutionaries came to America in the mid-1930's, they looked around and observed an America that was Christian, capitalist and with patriarchal families so they sensed there was potential for some kind of authoritarian regime as came about in the Hitlerian Germany they had left. As a result of these circumstances, The Authoritarian Personalty came to serve as an ideological handbook for a national campaign against any kind of prejudice or discrimination on the theory that if these evils were not eradicated, another Holocaust might ensue. Political Correctness evolved from that milieu.
What had begun with the founding of the Frankfurt School in 1924 as destructive criticism of the elements of Western culture had ended in The Authoritarian Personality as a psychological method for pathologizing any evidence of religious, cultural or racial superiority in the thinking and behavior among the American majority. No single religion was to be superior. No single culture was to be superior. And no single race was to be superior. And so multiculturalism was invented. And then no single sex was to be superior. And with nothing superior, there was nothing to value. It was to be a matter of choice by the individual self since there was to be no higher authority than the self. This is the very essence of Political Correctness. It serves as the means to conduct the psychic decapitation of any potential leader who might seek to unify Americans on the basis of a shared religion, culture or race. Americans were to be kept fragmented by this radical individualism and subjected to a national condition of cognitive dissonance. meaning massive confusion over beliefs and values. Then America could be treated as one vast psychopathic ward and controlled accordingly.
The method selected by the Marxist social revolutionaries to control the American people is rather simple. It is by dialectical stages of operant conditioning by words. Only instead of the bourgeois middle class being made to bear the brunt of all society's ills and thus merit the criminalization of that class as Karl Marx proposed, the modern cultural Marxists have substituted white heterosexual males as the class to be criminalized by charges of racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homophobia or xenophobia as the particular circumstance requires. They have manipulated the federal government itself into passing laws and regulations against discrimination to keep white males in their psychic iron cage where they fear to challenge what is being done to the American nation. Then Hate Crimes were added to this cultural terrorism to keep the white males in their place. This was an inversion of reality since those who originated the charge of Hate Crimes were the ones who were guilty of attempting to destroy the white male structure of power. But this is what Frankfurt School Critical Theory has brought about.
A review of the historical roots of Political Correctness would not be complete without reference to the psychological process of dialectical stages of operant conditioning by words that have been directed against the larger body of Western Man in the generic sense before Frankfurt School Critical Theory came to be applied against American white males. For more than a hundred years, Marxist social revolutionaries have leveled criminal-like charges of imperialism, colonialism, militarism, chauvinism, feudalism as well as fascism and Nazism, which is a leftist ideology in and of itself, in later years against Western Man. These words are still part of the Marxist vocabulary. But they were only in the first of the dialectical stages. What has been going on in America is the second stage. Only the first stage was designed to destroy the whole Western structure of power that in earlier times dominated the world. So the process is basically the same except the social revolution in America is only a part of this larger global picture.

The visible evidence that Political Correctness reigns supreme over the American landscape is not a nice sight for the eyes of a traditional American to behold. For all practical purposes, the social revolution promoted by the Marxists of the Frankfurt School and such others as Leon Trotsky, Herbert Marcuse, and Betty Friedan has been successfully executed in America. There is virtually no sphere of American life that has been left untouched. The revolutionary inversions in the heretofore prevailing system of beliefs as a result of Frankfurt School Critical Theory has had the effect of preparing Americans for an ongoing and steadily increasing displacement of white males by women and minorities in the governmental, judicial. military, educational and informational structures of society as the Marxist revolutionaries intended. For instance, at the 1996 Democratic national convention fifty percent of the delegates were women. The Republican national convention was not much better in its pandering. There was loud cheers when the first woman was appointed Secretary of State in 1997. Before that , the President's cabinet consisted of only four Euro-white males out of fourteen cabinet posts. The remainder were women and various minorities. Herbert Marcuse should be proud, for there were no complaints. So would Antonio Gramsci, especially if he knew about the ordination of women in the churches and the gender-neutering and emasculation of prayer-books and other texts in the synagogues. This points to the expanding sexual madness in the land brought on by Frankfurt School Critical Theory that became transposed into Political Correctness.
