Is Teen Vogue Turning Karl Marx Into Its Next Teen Idol? [Watch]
Arthur Herman, Fox News
If you think America won the Cold War, take a look at a new article in Teen Vogue headlined “Who is Karl Marx: Meet the Anti-Capitalist Scholar.” It praises the communist scholar’s critique of the shortcomings of capitalism, but says nothing about the much greater shortcomings of communism.
The article mentions how Marx inspired artist Frida Kahlo, human rights activist Malcolm X, and deaf and blind author Helen Keller – but not how he inspired Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, Chinese dictator Mao Zedong, and Cambodian dictator Pol Pot to murder at least 65 million people combined.
The article concludes: “While you may not necessarily identify as a Marxist, socialist, or communist, you can still use Karl Marx’s ideas to use history and class struggles to better understand how the current sociopolitical climate in America came to be.”
How did the current intellectual climate in America come to be, making it possible for a grotesque piece of communist propaganda like this to wind up in – of all places – Teen Vogue, a magazine targeted to an audience of teenage girls?
