Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979), a member of the Frankfurt School, was a major figure in the New Left movement of the 1960s. He was also a major figure in the development of Cultural Marxism, more commonly known as political correctness.

He was most infamous for promoting the false idea that the fascists and Nazis were sexual repressives and adhered to a strict moral code (when in reality, the Nazis actually were bohemians and sexual perverts).

Marcuse was denounced by Pope Paul VI for "theory that opens the way to license cloaked as liberty, and the aberration of instinct called liberation."[1]
