Are you saying that everyone on the left is either a Marxist or a Communist? Sorry to disillusion you, but that's absurd. That's as dumb as saying that every white conservative is a racist.
It must feel great to be as clever as you are, eh, Bob?
And that neither Marcuse or Marxism have much relevance today past the academic.

Communist party bans believers in province of ‘China’s Jerusalem’
“Party members are banned from joining religions. Believing in communism and atheism is a basic requirement to become a party member,” Li Yunlong, a professor at the Party School of the Communist party of China central committee, told the newspaper...
Government-backed demolition crews forced hundreds of churches to remove prominently placed crosses, despite elaborate protests and sit-ins by congregants. Some of the buildings were branded “illegal structures” and demolished entirely..
The newspaper added that party members in the province would be subjected to a Marxist education campaign and “need to submit a written promise rejecting religion beliefs”.

A dictator dictates. He doesn't respond to questions. He doesn't try to persuade. He doesn't try to "reason" with his subject. He dictates, that's it. And if immediate compliance is not forthcoming, you suffer the consequences.
Those who feel compelled to dictate how others should, must, and do evaluate things are no different than any other totalitarian dictator.
That's the whole idea behind "political correctness," a practice developed by the communist party in the 1920's and revived in this country among radicals in the 1960's, led by Herbert Marcuse, the so-called "father of the new left."
He wrote a treatise called "repressive tolerance" which was very influential among it's intended audience
It essence, the theme was that the values and goals of the left had to be perpetuated by repressing all views seen as opposing those goals/values. Those views had to be "repressed" and NOT tolerated.
The whole modus operandi is nothing new, I'm afraid.
My way, or the highway, pal.
Glitter, are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the communist party?
Wow, you think history started in the 60's??? Have you ever heard of Joe McCarthy. I guess not. I'll leave you in pathetic ignorance because I don't even get physic income by educating people like you. He was disgraced in Congress, and died later of complications of Alcoholism. His leanings were influenced by his copious amounts of booze and sycophants.
Please educate yourself, when you say stupid things to people who lived thru those eras, or the scholars who have studied these issues you appear to be a man with a big red nose and clown shoes. Enjoy your country exhibitions, dumb ****.
McCarthy had legit concerns.
Tail gunner Joe was just doin what hadta be done, cancha see?
Quote:Marx argued against the exploitation of labor; Marcuse, against labor itself. Don't work, have sex. This was the simple message of Eros and Civilization, released in 1955. Its ideas proved to be extraordinarily popular among the fledgling hippie culture of the following decade. It provided a rationale for laziness and transformed degrading personal vices into virtues
6 years ago I quit my job so I could have sex 24/7. Best advice I ever got. Thanks, Herbert!
