American Cultural Revolution - Ideology

The ideology driving the American Cultural Revolution has an authoritarian vision. They want to transform society from a liberal society with individual freedom to an illiberal society completely managed and controlled by the ruling class.

Critical consciousness is the core beliefs and values of the American Cultural Revolution. The ultimate good is sustainability and equity, also known as environmental justice and social justice. Equity means equal outcomes for idenity groups and lowering standards. Sustainabilty requires controling resources and human behavior. There is a moral obligation for you and everyone to engage in revolution to achieve sustainability and equity.

This is a totalizing ideology. Every policy, every decision, every transaction from all areas of society and from the largest organizations down to the smallest community is political and has an impact. It all must be controlled by the ruling class. This is not a live and let live ideology. Any opposition will be actively suppressed and destroyed and everyone must participate in the new society.

Critical Consciousness

"Critical consciousness is, in short, having adopted a critical mindset, in the sense of critical theories. It is to have taken on a worldview that sees society in terms of systems of power, privilege, dominance, oppression, and marginalization, and that has taken up an intention to become an activist against these problematics."
