The Threepenny Opera, which is said to have offered “a Marxist critique of the capitalist world”, was written by Bertolt Brecht -- a lifelong Marxist. Two songs from The Threepenny Opera prominently found their way into pop culture - Mack the Knife and Pirate Jenny.
Judy Collins took some liberties with the original “Pirate Jenny” and produced an artistically compelling pop song depicting what Marx described as an economic class struggle. The person who uploaded the video below also produced some visually compelling companion illustrations. Marxist propaganda often comes wrapped in an entertaining (and/or self-righteous) package.
I just wonder…
How many hippies listening to the Judy Collins cover of Pirate Jenny in 1966 knew they were being seduced by Marxist propaganda? Not many (if any). They simply soaked up the Marxist view of the world without ever understanding the ideology they were unconsciously embracing.
But, Judy Collins -- who idolized the murdering Communist bastard Che Guevara -- almost certainly knew she was pimping for the Communist cause.

The very same process described in this post happens every day to anybody exposed to our “educational” system, our “entertainment” industry or our “news” industry. These are the three primary vectors for the dissemination of propaganda. All three vectors are almost completely controlled by the American Left.
