Herbert Marcuse

Herbert Marcuse [ 1898 - 1979 ] was a Jew, communist subversive, prominent philosopher and sociologist

He served with the Reichswehr, in Berlin during the First World War and was a member of a  Soldiers' Council that participated in the aborted socialist Spartacist Uprising . The Spartakusbund was a left-wing Marxist revolutionary movement which became the Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands or Communist Party of Germany [ KPD ].

During the Second World War he worked for the American OSS [ Office of Strategic Services ] which sounds like bad security. He carried on as a post Marxist political subversive thereafter.
