The long march through our institutions

The-Long-March

“Revolution is a long, complicated process,  which I have once named ‘The Long March through the Established Institutions,’ in which awareness is brought in and outside the university, in schools, in trade schools, in engineer schools, also technical universities and finally in factories.” ~ German Marxist Rudi Dutschke

Families.

The tragic — and overlooked — fallout from the ’60s sexual revolution. By many measures, our society is in trouble, and we are ignoring a root cause: the unprecedented familial dispersion that followed the 1960s sexual revolution. At heart, that revolution aimed to radically sever human sexuality from marriage and child-rearing, from the responsibilities society had hitherto imposed on the individual sexual appetite.

Churches.

Bored with Sunday Service? Maybe Nudist Church Is Your Thing.A nudist church in Virginia where the pastor delivers sermons in his birthday suit. A drive-in church in Florida where parishioners can attend services from the comfort of their cars. A 500-foot-long, “Biblically accurate” reconstruction of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky. “If you’re a surfer, there’s a church for Christian surfers. If you’re a biker, there’s a church for bikers.”

Colleges. 

NYU professor founded anarchist group that attacked subways last month. Amin Husain, 44, is a co-founder of Decolonize This Place, which urged its radical followers in a social media campaign to “f-ck sh-t up” on Jan. 31 in a violent assault on the city’s transit system that concluded with 13 arrests and $100,000 in damage.

Schools.

Teacher Who Supported Drag Queen Visiting School Says Parents Shouldn’t Have “Final Say” in Raising Their Children. A teacher at a school in Texas said parents shouldn’t have the “final say” in raising their own kids after some of them complained about a drag queen visiting the school to give a talk to the children. “Let’s be honest, some of you don’t know what is best for your kids.”

Courts.

Rein in politicized judges and their injunctions. By issuing putatively national injunctions, Attorney General William Barr said in a May 21 speech to the American Law Institute: “One judge can, in effect, cancel the policy with the stroke of the pen. No official in the United States government [rightly] can exercise that kind of nationwide power, with the sole exception of the president. And the Constitution subjects him to nationwide election, among other constitutional checks, as a prerequisite to wielding that power.”

Organizations. 

An Obituary for the Boy Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts of America opened its doors to girls and rebranded as Scouts BSA. This change was overdue, as the organization had already accepted girls — who identify as transgender boys — into the program. American culture has grown increasingly hostile to the mission of raising boys into men. Concerns about “toxic masculinity” have grown into an assault on masculinity itself, with the American Psychological Association demonizing traditional masculinity.
