Influential critic Walter Benjamin, 1892-1940. Click to enlarge
When I studied English Literature, I was mystified that it was stripped of its social and biographical context as if naked words had some occult meaning by themselves. “Critical Theory” (Jewish Satanism, Cabalism) has subverted (“deconstructed”) modern Western culture and undermined language as a means of communication.
“In order to effect the destruction of all collective forces except ours we shall emasculate the first stage of collectivism, the universities,
by re-educating them in a new direction.” Protocols of Zion, 16
Jews (and Freemasons) have a choice: Disown their organizations, or be blamed for what they are doing.

In every conversation about Cultural Marxism, Walter Benjamin is often overlooked, but this is a mistake.
Benjamin loaded his writings on literature and culture full of concepts and terminology from the kabbalah and the occult. In an early piece, The Task of the Translator, he claims that all modern languages are incomplete and can never give a completely accurate description of anything on the surface until society and language become “whole.” This is a clear reference to the kabbalistic “shattering of the vessels.”
The ideas expressed in this text would become the backbone of deconstructionism, the technique used by cultural Marxists to prove that words can mean anything and all things are “social constructs.” He died young by his own hands while fleeing Nazi persecution but right before doing so he wrote a short essay which combined Marxist “historical materialism” with kabbalist mysticism.
Keeping with the semi-Gnostic kabbalist narrative of the “broken God” that inflicts His suffering onto Mankind, Benjamin claimed all human history was a history of suffering and all human culture was barbaric. To him, the only way to obtain mankind’s liberation is to identify with the Marxist “class struggle”… The “oppressed” classes need to fill their hearts with hate, thus provoking them to destroy capitalism and Western Civilization. He says: “Hatred and [the] spirit of sacrifice…are nourished by the image of enslaved ancestors rather than that of liberated grandchildren.
