Cultural Hegemony

  1. Attempts to alter hegemonic attitudes will fail if they're contrary to nature's laws. Male-female relations are dictated by genetic factors, so pretending otherwise will result in a very confused society. Otherwise, this vid was a very instructive précis regarding Gramsci's theories.

  2. didn't think anyone had an equally large candle addiction as i did. thanks for your work girl, interesting stuff

  3. Why don't they talk about the fact that Gramsci was a degenerate and suffered from syphilis.
    He preyed on prostitutes……….. Also, he was twice jailed for obscene and depraved behaviour.
    He supported the death of anyone who stood in the way of the advancement of communism.
    Hence, he supported tyrant, Stalin.

  4. I have been looking for a long time for a good, simple and accessible video to elaborate hegemony for my students. THIS IS GOLD. Thank you.  Our education system in New Zealand has historically been based in a western hegemonic system, but Māori (indigenous to New Zealand) have fought for alternatives that are counter-hegemonic to this western system – that empowers us culturally as native people of the land.  THANK YOU.

  5. You can also see a perfect example of subordinate cultures when you look at your average "woke" hipster.

    Most of them are dudes, most of them are single, most of them regurgitate talking points from the current hegemonic zeitgeist… And nearly all of them are doing it because society has conditioned them to believe that they can use this to gain sexual affection. It's why you see so many of them being revealed to be sex-pests and predators (the "metoo" phenomenon.) They talk a good game about equality and respect but the dirty laundry that's being aired about them tells a much darker story.

    Honestly, it's why I tend to be very leery of dudes that are all "I'm a good ally." Riiight, so, like all the rest of the "good allies" you're just thirsting and using your "ally points" as currency to barter for some tail?

    I totally get why women are sometimes frightened by men. A lot of the men that have gravitated towards them are plying them with so many lies that it makes perfect sense why they've come to believe that men are pigs… Because the men they find themselves surrounded with are pigs.

  6. That was super interesting. Sometimes it's hard to see that we are only looking at things in one way – being the way others have told us is right. This got me thinking about what is actually correct compared to what everyone has just told me is so. Thank you!

  7. Hi! What are your sources for this video. I am busy with my dissertation and a section of it focuses on hegemony.

  8. SO THIS IS WHAT WOMEN WANT NOW BY MAKING LAWS THAT KEEP MEN WEAK GOOD THING FOR WOMEN NOT SO GOOD FOR MEN WHO LIKE OPENING THE DOOR FOR WOMEN THE WAY THERE MUM TOLD THEM TO DO ZXZX LAR HOB ZXZX

  9. The Ruling Class have exerted and refined their version of Cultural Hegemony so skilfully that people are now scared to think for themselves.

    Many Americans will hurl abuse – "you dirty Commie!", "You Marxist!" etc. like a parrot, without even understanding meaning of the words they are using.

    They have been told by the Ruling Class that Communists are 'bad' (and they are bad for the Ruling Class) and so citizens absorb the dogma and believe it.

    Then you have the insanity of the Vietnam War and American soldiers burning down Vietnamese villages to protect the villagers from Communism. Such is the power of Cultural Hegemony.

  10. YOu are simply a fine example of Proletariet brainwashed of our public school system straight from Franfort Germany.

  11. I think we are long past the time of many of these hegemonic structures in the US, and our current hegemony is the belief that Fox News and the christian right are the ones really running the show and all people are equal.

  12. Wow awesome very nice explanation I was having trouble understanding but with the examples you gave I understood. I love you!!!
