About 3 years ago, Sen. Cruz claimed that the Harvard Law School in the 90s had "twelve who would say they were Marxists who believed in the Communists overthrowing the United States government.” Cruz was referring to Critical Legal Theory and as is typical for a Bagger politician, got it all wrong:
In general, CLS argues that there is no natural or inevitable form of social organization, and there is by no means agreement between CLS scholars as to what form society and its laws should take. CLS thus avoids the kind of blueprint for social revolution that radical leftist movements such as Marxism-Leninism supplied in the past. Instead, leading CLS devotees envision a potential emancipation of individuals from the structures of power that restrict and victimize them. For these reasons, the political philosophy of many in the CLS movement has been described as utopian, a characterization that many do not completely deny.
