Thirty-two years ago, Soviet defector and KGB operative Yuri Bezmenov, specializing in the fields of Marxist-Leninist propaganda and ideological subversion; warned us about the silent war being waged against America as part of a long term plan to take over and destroy the American system and way of life.
Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate and open. You can see it with your own eyes…. It has nothing to do with espionage.
I know that intelligence gathering looks more romantic…. That’s probably why your Hollywood producers are so crazy about James Bond types of films. But in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.
It’s a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first stage being “demoralization”. It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.
The result? The result you can see — most of the people who graduated in the 60’s, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and educational systems. You are stuck with them. You can’t get through to them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern [alluding to Pavlov]. You can not change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still can not change the basic perception and the logic of behavior.
In other words [for] these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.
The Four Stages of Ideological Subversion
The Four Stages of Ideological Subversion how to brainwash a Nation. Yuri Bezmenov KGB defector.
Stage 1 — Demoralization
The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already, for the last twenty-five years, actually it’s over-fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where previously not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such a tremendous success, most of it is done by Americans to Americans, thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralized is unable to access true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I showered him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures — even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him a concentration camp — he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military boot crashes his butt, then he will understand, but not before that. That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.
Stage 2 — Destabilization
The next stage is destabilization. This time the subverter does not care about your ideas and the patterns of your consumption, whether you eat junk food and get fat and flabby doesn’t matter anymore. This time — and it takes only from two to five years to destabilize a nation — what matters is essentials. Economy, foreign relations, defense systems. And you can see quite clearly that in some areas, in such sensitive areas as defense and economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never believe it fourteen years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process would go that fast.
Stage 3 — Crisis
The next stage of course is crisis, it may take only up to six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis, you can see it in Central America now. And after crisis, with a violent change of power, structure, and economy, you have a so-called period of normalization. It may last indefinitely.
Stage 4 — Normalization
Normalization is a cynical expression, borrowed from Soviet propaganda, when the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, Comrade Brezhnev said, “Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized.”
This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all the schmucks to bring the country to crisis. To promise people all kinds of goodies and a paradise on Earth. To destabilize your economy. To eliminate the principle of free market competition and to put a Big Brother government in Washington DC with benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise lots of things, never mind whether the promises are fulfilled or not. He will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of a new generation of Soviet assassins, never mind, he will create false illusions that the situation is under control.
The situation is not under control. The situation is disgustingly out of control. Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system, trains another generation of people who think they are living at the peace time. False. The United States is in a state of war. Undeclared total war against the basic principles and the foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course, it’s the system — however ridiculous it may sound — the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not I don’t give a hoot. If you are not scared by now, nothing can scare you. But you don’t have to be paranoid about it. What actually happens now, that unlike myself, you have literally several years to limp on unless the United States wakes up. The time bomb is ticking, with every second the disaster is coming closer and closer, unlike myself you will have no where to defect to. Unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is it, this is the last country of freedom and possibility.

Russian Communism Vs. American Communism
February 20, 2017
History tells us that when the Soviet Union collapsed in December 1991, Russian communism collapsed.
Boris Yeltsin was elevated to president upon the resignation of Mikhail Gorbachev on Christmas Day and a new era of détente began between Russia and the U.S. after 44 years of cold war. For more than 20 years the U.S. and Russia were on mostly friendly terms; so friendly, in fact, that in 1996 a group of Bill Clinton campaign operatives helped save Yeltsin’s political career.
Although his approval ratings were in a ditch, two-thirds of Russians considered him corrupt, and he trailed five candidates in the polls four months prior to the election, Yeltsin was reelected with the help of American campaign professionals — operating in secret — and cash from American companies.
In 2012, GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, in a debate with President Barack Obama, first broached the neocon-inspired notion that Russia might be more our enemy than friend. Obama, establishment Democrats and the state propaganda mainstream media (apologies for the redundancy), laughed Romney off the stage and into the dustbin containing a litany of limp-wristed faux conservative neocon losers.
But Russia, led by Vladimir Putin, had/has every right to consider the U.S. an enemy. In 2011 the Obama/Hillary Clinton State Department had funded – if not instigated — a protest movement against Putin in an effort to have him resign or get him defeated for reelection. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators gathered across the country and called for his resignation.
Those aren’t the only elections in which America has meddled. And WikiLeaks just released documents showing CIA espionage in the 2012 French presidential elections.
Now fast forward to the 2016 campaign of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Clinton lackeys and the mainstream media (again, apologies for the redundancy) – along with the neocon establishment wing of the Republican Party — are all caterwauling nonstop about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia and Russian “hacking” of the election.
But to recap, the only evidence of “Russian hacking” comes from Crowdstrike, the Democrat National Committee’s cybersecurity firm, which has ties to the Council on Foreign Relations. American intelligence agencies were not allowed by the DNC to probe their servers, not that they can be trusted to tell the truth.
To clarify, the neocon wing includes CFR members and their servants and cronies (Republicans and Democrats); the Bush crime family cabal; and the leaders of the anti-Trump movement like Insane John McCain, his lapdog Lindsey Graham, William Kristol of the Zionist propaganda rag Weekly Standard; and former joke presidential candidate Evan McMullin (a former CIA agent). All of them are pushing for war with Russia because Russia stands in the way (in Syria, and alongside Iran) of complete U.S. hegemony over the Middle East.
The neocon wing are descendants of the Trotskyites and Wall Street moguls who funded both sides of the Russian Revolution for profit and exported socialism/communism to Russia.
Both Kristol and McMullin – along with other neocons — have openly called for a coup against Trump by the Deep State. Coups are said to occur in communist/Marxist/socialist backwaters, not republics. Yet there is an active coup underway against Trump.
People are so naïve. Communism is not dead in Russia. It is not dead in Europe. It is not even dead in the United States. Communism is alive and well worldwide.
Communism is only a cover word or disguise for state capitalism or monopoly capitalism and police state power. With only very small variations the entire world is on this system.
Russian communism gets the bad name because it has been used since World War II by the ruling oligarchy and their military-industrial complex to keep the American people in constant fear and political manipulation. More importantly, Russian communism has been used as a decoy to keep the American people and the world from seeing American communism.
Russian communism was exported to Russia from the U.S. (See “Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution,” by Antony Sutton). But in the United States, communism was incubated, concealed and sold as democracy.
Bureaucratic tyranny, a ruling oligarchy and Deep State power are as nefarious in the United States as in any so-called communist country. It is just more sophisticated and the media plus the public school system has sold the U.S. brand of communism as democracy.
When the U.S. spying apparatus is unleashed unrestrained on the American people – and even people running for president — you are de facto living in a communist police state.
When the federal government, or as we call it, the “state,” can create money and pay it to you for goods and your labor, you are a slave. You may be a happy slave, but you are indeed a slave to the money creators.
This system is iron-fisted totalitarianism because it is backed by police power. Every country in the world is on this money creation system backed by police power.
“Police power is the power of the state to place restraints on the personal freedom and property rights of persons (individuals) for the protection of the public safety, health, and morals…” (Black’s Law Dictionary).
This says that “public policy” is the federal government’s monopoly of police power to manipulate, restrict or extinguish human liberty and property for the benefit of the state. This includes legislating social relationships and even morality.
Here are the 10 planks of communism:
- Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. (Private property rights are almost nonexistent today. You don’t own your property if it can be confiscated for non-payment of tribute to the king, or if a government agency like the Environmental Protection Agency can arbitrarily tell you what you can and can’t do with it.)
- A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (Accomplished via the American tax system. Enforced via the Gestapo-like Internal Revenue Service.)
- Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (Accomplished via the estate tax.)
- Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. (Accomplished via rendition and drug laws and civil forfeiture laws allowing law enforcement to confiscate property if it is suspected of being used in the trade or manufacture of drugs — often without evidence.)
- Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. (Accomplished via the Federal Reserve, which is not Federal and doesn’t hold “reserves.”)
- Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state. (Accomplished via the Federal Communications Commission and the regulated airline industry, Amtrak, public transportation and the regulated auto industry. Further attempts being made to seize more power through control of the Internet.)
- Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of wastelands and the improvement of the soil, generally in accordance with a common plan. (Accomplished through price controls on the utilities via their government-supported monopolies and subsidies for favored industries.)
- Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. (Industrial armies accomplished through regulations favoring/subsidizing unions.)
- Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country. (In progress via Agenda 21, “sustainable development” communities, etc.)
- Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production. (Accomplished via the public indoctrination system called public education under the control of the Federal government.)
These planks are supported by both major political parties.
Russian communism anyone? What a joke. Focus on American communism.
