The Authoritarian Personality … Studies in Prejudice Series, Volume 1
This work is considered by some to be the seminal work of the “Frankfurt School”, which infected the Western World with the scourge of Cultural Marxism following its rapid ouster from Third Reich Germany, which in turn followed the appointment of Adolf Hitler as Germany’s Chancellor.
In haste, this school’s entourage then relocated to New York City in 1935, where it immediately became affiliated with Columbia University.
The Frankfurt School (German: Frankfurter Schule) is a school of “social theory” and pseudo-philosophy, loosely linked with the Institute for Social Research at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany. Recall that Frankfurt is the original home of the Rothschild lineage.
Wikipedia states: Though strongly criticized for bias and methodology, the book was highly influential in American social sciences, particularly in the first decade after its publication: “No volume published since the war in the field of social psychology has had a greater impact on the direction of the actual empirical work being carried on in the universities today.”
Some observers have criticized what they saw as a strongly politicized agenda to The Authoritarian Personality.
Social critic Christopher Lasch argued that by equating mental [good] health with left-wing politics and associating right-wing politics with an invented “authoritarian” pathology, the book’s goal was to eliminate antisemitism by “subjecting the American people to what amounted to collective psychotherapy—by treating them as inmates of an insane asylum.”
Similarly, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek wrote, “It is precisely the kind of group loyalty, respect for tradition, and consciousness of differences central to Jewish identity, however, that Horkheimer and Adorno described as mental illness in Gentiles.
These writers [Adorno, Frenkel-Brunswik, Levinson, and Sanford] adopted what eventually became a favorite Soviet tactic against dissidents: anyone whose political views differed from theirs was diagnosed as insane.
This explains why ethno-Europeans got infected (post WWII) with a guilt-complex that has long hampered their ability to deal with the “Jewish problem”. Adorno, et al, succeeded simply by planting scurrilous books into the libraries of our University system, and letting the naive youth swallow the Talmudic poison in their own time.
