The Clarity of Delusion

Marxism believes that truth does not exist outside of Marxism itself.  It believes in no outside spectator such as God, and extends that to say that outside spectators of any kind simply cannot exist.  If a claim or statement contributes to the Progress of Marxism, it is true.  Thus truth and morality are based on their relationship to Marxism and the Party.  As Professor Nikolaus Lobkowicz states:
Whatever serves it is true and good; whatever hinders it is false and evil. There exists no objective morality and there cannot exist any disinterested pursuit of truth.
One would think that in this day and age such a twisted view of reality would be absent throughout the world -- except maybe in North Korea.   But no, I stumbled across the following item today.  I have never seen a more succinct description of the concept of Marxist Truth.

Last week the Atlanta Progressive News fired their senior staff writer.  Here is the reason they gave:

At a very fundamental, core level, Springston did not share our vision for a news publication with a progressive perspective. He held on to the notion that there was an objective reality that could be reported objectively, despite the fact that that was not our editorial policy at Atlanta Progressive News.
So whenever you hear someone say they are "Progressive", remember that their idea of truth and your idea of truth likely differ at a very fundamental, core level.

  1. But is it objectively true that there is no objective truth, or is it simply the preferred progressive truth that progressive truth is to be preferred?
