The Marxcissist Manifesto
Or Communism for the Rich and Overeducated Cultural Elites of the Dying West
A specter is haunting America — the specter of Marxcissism!1 All the formerly free and prosperous nations of the West have entered into an unholy alliance to immolate themselves at the Marxcissist altar. But how did this come to be, and what are the Marxcissists’ aims?
Decades ago, Marxism 1.0 was characterized by the belief that all political and cultural conflicts are ultimately rooted in a class struggle between the proletariat and the bourgeoise. However, something strange happened in America to change all of this. When Soviet agents infiltrated American society and attempted to spread the mind virus of communism, they achieved their greatest success in institutions dominated by the bourgeoise: Ivy League Universities and elite liberal arts colleges, top gatekeepers in Hollywood and mass media, the upper echelons of the professional-managerial elites (PME), directors of foundations with endowments larger than the GDPs of most third-world countries, etc. Meanwhile, the proles, the very people the Marxists were trying to help, actually detested communism. Something had to be done!
As Francis Fukuyama observed, history ended with the fall of the Soviet Union — just kidding! Even though Russia and the other former Soviet republics renounced communism, the mind virus had taken root — in America!2 Marxism was alive and well, but it needed to adapt to the unique challenges of American culture. How could Marxists convince a critical mass of Americans to embrace communism?
The answer came during those dark days after the financial crisis, when the populists started demonstrating for reforms. Populists on the Right formed the Tea Party, while populists on the Left led “Occupy Wall Street” protests.
On both sides of the political aisle, the proles were demanding reforms. The workers of the world were uniting, but they were uniting against the bourgeoise, which was the very class that had embraced Marxism most enthusiastically.
This created a dilemma for Western communists, who mostly hailed from the upper echelons of the bourgeoise: either remain loyal to your political ideology or remain loyal to your class. But class confers privileges that political ideology, by itself, does not. Thus, the two needed to be reconciled. This reality set the stage for Marxcissism, a reinvention of communism for rich people: a political struggle based, not on economic class, but on having politically correct opinions on issues pertaining to race, sexuality, and gender.
Note that I did not say that Maxcissist status is “based on race, sexuality, and gender,” but rather that it is based on “having politically correct opinions on issues pertaining to race, sexuality, and gender.” This is an important distinction.
Many have noticed that “Black” now seems to be a politically and culturally favored class, but this is not entirely true. Being “Black” and having politically correct opinions gives you admission into the politically and culturally favored class. If you’re racially black but politically conservative, you are called things like “the blackface on white supremacy” (Larry Elder), and when you speak, the corporate media pundits say you have “a Black mouth moving but a white idea running on the runway of the tongue of a figure who justifies and legitimates the white supremacist practices” (the word salad coined by woke wordsmith Michael Eric Dyson, professor of retardation and advanced mindfuckology at Vanderbilt, to describe black conservative Winsome Sears). And because white people, like Robin DeAngelo and Elizabeth Warren3, are also admitted to the politically and culturally favored class based on having the politically correct opinions on these issues, we can safely conclude that it is the politically correct opinions themselves, rather than one’s identity, that signals one’s membership in the elite class.
What are the politically correct opinions? Well, comrades, that is the beauty of this new system. Instead of luxury goods signaling socioeconomic status through conspicuous consumption, we now have luxury beliefs signaling such status. And in order to keep out the riff-raff, these politically correct opinions change constantly. Today’s orthodox profession of Marxcissist faith could put you on the “wrong side of history” tomorrow, requiring continual updates to one’s beliefs and vocabulary in order to remain a member in good standing of the professional-managerial elite (PME). How do you get the most current updates to your belief system? By attending the correct schools (with tuition costing more than the average house), by consuming the correct news and entertainment media, by joining the correct social and political organizations, by supporting the correct causes, etc.
Now, although the orthodox formulations of politically correct beliefs are constantly changing, thereby requiring significant investments of time and resources to stay abreast of the current thing (something only the relatively affluent and expensively educated are able to do consistently), it should be noted that the underlying ideological principles of Marxcissism remain the same: whatever makes the masses weaker, more distracted, more divided, and more impotent is what is actively promoted by the ruling elite.
Why do Marxcissists want the proles to stay divided, distracted, weak, and ineffective? Because the true elites, the “inner party” of The United States of Enron and its Globohomo Empire, are busy stealing everything that can be stolen (and mortgaging everything that can’t) to fund their runaway greed and gluttony. As Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party once showed, if the proles are united and paying attention, they could become dangerous.
How do the ruling Marxcissists keep the proles divided and distracted? By focusing their critical ideology on every potentially divisive issue except for classically Marxist bourgeoise vs proletariat economics. They give some proles a provisional seat at the PME table in order to turn their loyalties away from their fellow proles and towards the interests of the wealthy. They pay and promote Pied Pipers like Ibram “Xtra-retarded” Kendi and Patrisse “Real-Estate Tycoon” Cullors to inflame black people with the false belief that the ruling class is fighting for them against the oppressive working-class white Trump voters, even as they slander and racially attack any black public figure who entertains politically incorrect opinions. They invite white people to play identity politics by identifying as trans and sterilizing themselves. And if anyone seeks to draw attention to the criminal corruption at the top of our cultural institutions, the ruling elite immediately impugn such would-be reformers, regardless of race, as being fascists and a “threat to our democracy.”
If you want a picture of the future of Humanity under Marxcissism, imagine the proles taking turns stamping their boots on each others’ faces — forever — while the wealthy Marxcissists steal their bread and kidnap their children, transition them to the opposite gender, rape them, and sacrifice them to the devil. Why? Because they can. And any proles who try to resist will be labeled enemies of democracy, will have the digital currency in their bank account locked because of their “unacceptable” and “fringe” views, will be made unemployable, will be locked in solitary confinement for years (while violent career criminals like murderers, robbers, and rapists go free), etc.
Workers of the World,
unite be divided among yourselves by race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc.! Keep fighting each other! Pay no attention to the puppetmaster behind the curtain! Be awed and amused by the smoke and mirrors and bright lights and loud noises! You have only your freedom to lose, and a future of owning nothing, having no privacy, and being happy (or else!) to gain!4

Kudos to my Martian friend,, over at Postcards from Barsoom, for coining the ingeniously apt term, “Marxcissists.” to describe the narcissistic and entitled wokoids undermining everything good about Western culture with their self-righteousness and cult-like zeal for Marxist critical theory.
Interestingly, the USA did not win the Cold War. Sure, the Berlin Wall fell. Sure, the Warsaw Pact disintegrated, and the USSR collapsed as suddenly and completely as Tower 7 of the World Trade Center complex on 9/11, but the Soviet Union fell only after its agents had spread the mind virus of communism deep in the heart of America’s most influential institutions. I would analogize America to the dog in Old Yeller, which defended its owner against a rabid cougar, thereby giving the owner the opportunity to retrieve a rifle and shoot the cougar dead; the dog survived, but not before getting infected with rabies, ultimately causing the dog to lose its mind and requiring it to be put down. Something very similar happened with the USA. We are now in the advanced stages of a terminal case of communism.
