One of my more learned commentators has been using the phrase "Gramscian" about many aspects of modern culture: I thought it worth while to learn a bit more and pass it on - Antonio Gramsci - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Capitalism, Gramsci suggested, maintained control not just through violence and political and economic coercion, but also ideologically, through a hegemonic culture in which the values of the bourgeoisie became the "common sense" values of all. Thus a consensus culture developed in which people in the working class identified their own good with the good of the bourgeoisie, and helped to maintain the status quo rather than revolting. The working class needed to develop a "counter-hegemonic" culture, said Gramsci, firstly to overthrow the notion that bourgeois values represented "natural" or "normal" values for society, and ultimately to succeed in overthrowing capitalism. Gramsci stated explicitly that, in the West, these bourgeois cultural values derived directly from Christianity, and therefore much of his polemic against hegemonic culture is aimed at religious mores and values.
So the route to the socialist utopia demands that you first destroy the culture of a country by attacking all "normal" mores and traditions - sound familiar?
