Is Communism Dead? Read Its Avowed 1963 Goals - Sound Just A Bit Familiar?
5-6-99 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Congressional Record PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE 88th CONGRESS FIRST SESSION VOLUME 109-PART 1 JANUARY 9, 1963, TO JANUARY 30, 1963 UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, 1963 Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land. Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America. At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the Record, under unanimous consent, the following 'Current Communist Goals' which she identifies as an excerpt from 'The Naked Communist,' by Cleon Skousen: (From 'The Naked Communist,' by Cleon Skousen) Current Communist Goals 1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. 2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. 3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. 4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. 5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. 6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. 7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. 8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushehev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free election under supervision of the U.N. 9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. 10. Allow all soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. 14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. 17. Get control of schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers, associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms." 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness,repulsive, meaningless art." 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press. 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity, as "normal, natural, healthy." 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace repealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch." 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state." 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man." 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture-education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. 33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. 34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. 35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI. 36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. 37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business. 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat. 39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition: that students and special interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems. 43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. 44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

Good stuff - but could you post it in readable format, or provide a link to a site with this file?

With the internet, 2nd Amendment, and a few patriots, we still have a chance. The enemy is from within this country. This has always been true. Question. Will we be tolerant or is there a time when we must become intolerant?

What communists/socialists want is a "McCarthy-esque" backlash that will scare all the hippie boomers and left-leaning liberals (who have no concept of geopolitics, or the real threat of slavery communism represents).
The first political weapon is truth; the last is a gun. If you whip out the last one first, you are going to scare everyone to the other side. We need to spread info like "a"'s around, and find a way to work against these influences in our communities, without giving them an excuse to play the "McCarthy" or "Right Wing Whacko" card.
But when they "suspend" the Constitution, lock and load.

Dano (cool name!): why should 'they' or anybody explicitly "suspend" the Constitution ? It is a nice piece of bird cage lining at this point already, but nobody ever calls a spade a spade in politics, why invite trouble ? They just do what they want, and never call it by its name. Never complain, never explain.

At some point, the legalistic undermining of the document will alter the environment such that it will appear archaic; at that point, there will be talk of rewriting it, or revising it, or whatever. The thought won't seem strange to most people. There's also the underming of US power - Clinton's sell-out to the Chinese being but one example. The plan is to make nations less relevant, and international (socialist) bodies more powerful, through engineering crises like world wars and depressions. Clinton endorses an anti-second amendment motion in the UN. In this environment, given enough domestic chaos, we might see existing "Emergency Orders" go into effect that would suspend Constitutional government. Though I think gradual undermining, punctuated by internationalist power-grabs, is more likely.

The communist plan to defeat and conquer the USA by stealth was formulated as far back as the 30's and has been constantly refined ever since. There never was an end to the cold war, Perestroika was and is an illusion - Ivan plays the ultimate game of chess and is heading towards check mate. At the very least for the NWO to proceed with their agenda the USA must be dealt with - and the timing is now (rather, 2000). The USA, no question, has been softened up - we are a decadent lot. Drugs, booze, teevee, movies, junk food, welfare - we will be a pushover. The only thorn in their side is armament - the number of guns floating around in the USA with people prepared to use them. Other countries have already had their guns confiscated following "tragedies" like Dunblane and Hungerford - England, Australia, Canada, all a fait accompli. So how to disarm the population? Two ways - crush the population via nuclear strikes and or biological/chemical weapons. Mop up what's left. The other is the problem/reaction/solution scenario I've talked about before. We're being set up for a fall on many sides, not least of which is y2k. The recent sell-off of Gold by the BOE indicates that TPTB are converting soon to be worthles digital fiat currency (the Dollar) for physical assets. Moving in unison they can collapse the dollar at will with the right strategies. How many Trillion dollars are we already in doubt. What if a rumour of default were to be spread? Create a depression - rampant, even hyper inflation a la Brazil and Russia. The Euro is ear marked to be the premier currency which will eventually become a gold backed digital-ONLY currency. So it will be death by a thousand cuts in the USA, with eventually the shell- shocked population clamouring for a saviour from the Riots and death and disease - a solution - anything - sign away the constitution - hand in your guns for food and digital money - far fetched? Don't bet on it. You will know one way or another within a year or so.

Oh, for god sake, folks, wake-up and smell the coffee ! Take a few minutes and re-read Uncle Karl's little 10 plank Manifesto, then compare that with real life in America today. The fact is, we don't lead our political lives much differently from people in Russia, Serbia or, for that matter, China. America is a Communist state and has been since the 1930s. The only outward difference is that our personal chains are a little longer than those of our foreign commrads, that's all. So if you want to see what a real communist looks like up-close and personal, take look in the mirror sometime, for we are them.

In all seriousness, is Nationalism/Capitalism without racism and/or religious cohesion possible? Personally, I have no problem saying I like to live exclusively around whites, but of course, that is not PC these days. However, "egalitarianism", "civil rights", "gay rights" and the "wellfare state" are all the rage in recent times. While realizing that even mentioning the issue of race labels me as a "hater", if egalitarianism (everybody is the same) and secularism (religion is frowned on) are taken to their logical conclusion, isn't Communism and/or Socialism the inevitable result?
I don't "hate" anyone (even those who wrong me, although I have never been a victim of violent crime), but I do like to discriminate, as in "I like this", or "I don't like that". I like traditional white European culture. I don't like traditional 3rd-world culture.
Back to my question. If "Liberals" are right, and us mean nasty racists are wrong, without an instinctive, genetically (family) based cohesion, won't a totalitarian government be required to "make everyone get along"? If so, isn't this sufficiently similar to Hitler & Stalin's style of government to give people cause for concern?
