Analysis: 'Cultural Marxism' and why the Right cannot escape its essential racism
The idea of an elite conspiracy against western civilisation is the only way for the right to make sense of a world they rule but which is in chaos
TORY MP Suella Braverman raised eyebrows (26 March) when she told a meeting of rightwing Tory members and supporters that "we are engaged in a war against cultural Marxism".
The party-aligned Bruges group, of which Braverman is a member, is deep in the factional crossfire over Brexit. But the phrase, spoken in anger, is a reminder of the ontology of mainstream rightwing thought in the Tory party and the UK.
