It died a long time before that. I remember reading Margaret Mead in an anthropology class that I took as an elective.
My professor,who was a friend of my mother’s, gushed all over it. I thought it was a total crock as it grated against my world-view rather seriously. I really didn’t have the mental skills at that time to analyze why; I just didn’t believe that Mead knew what she was talking about.
Turned out, she did;she was just lying her head off.
The radically flawed Rousseauesque anthropology of Marx and Engles is what feeds the “New Age” progressive demographic and environmentalism today and echoes the self-deprecation of neo-Gnositcism wherein physical reality is supposedly a fall from grace or the creation of an evil demiurge. The entire premise of marxism is that classless shared property is the natural state of Man, which is utterly bogus. There is also a hideous hidden agenda of occultism suffusing leftist thought comprising the taboo topic of “esoteric marxism”.
