Frankfurt School.

In Timothy Matthew's excellent article he states, "Unlike hard-line Marxists, the Frankfurt School did not make any plans for the future." This is not exactly true.

In Congressional testimony, just after her conversion to Catholicism through the influence of Bishop Fulton Sheen, Bella Dodd revealed, "With what is planned, you won't recognize America 50 years from now".

This was also elaborated on in her book School of Darkness, written just after the publication of the Frankfurt School's 1950 English translation of their subversive The Authoritarian Personality.

Some of the Frankfurt School leaders at this time were homosexual. "Gay" musicologist Theo Adorno, credited with writing most of the Beatles' songs, for a Nietzschean transvaluation of values, and Herbert Marcuse, who popularized the "Make love, not war" slogan, were part of the incrementalism.
