During the height of the Cold War, political theorist and former FBI employee Cleon Skousen authored “The Naked Communist” which outlined a concerted effort to overcome and control all of the world’s governments through the implementation of social progressivism and by undermining American foreign policy through the promotion of internationalism and pacifism. Although I generally do not subscribe to conspiracy theories, let’s take a look at what the author predicted sixty- five years ago, I think you will be amazed.
During remarks made on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1963 the Honorable A.S. Herlong, Jr. of Florida summarized the book’s methodology of turning capitalism into a communist–socialist state. In the interest of brevity, I will not list them all but just the more salient points and let you down your own conclusions.
#17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of the teacher’s associations.
#18. Gain control of student newspapers at universities.
#20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policymaking positions.
#21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
#25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
#26 Present degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
#27 Infiltrate the churches and replace 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, presenting them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
#32 Support any social movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
#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 the suppressive influence of parents.
#42 Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate of the American tradition; that student and special–interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political, or social problems.
For years, the U.S. Military has utilized information operations “actions taken to influence, disrupt, corrupt or usurp adversarial human and automated decision making while defending one’s own information and information systems.” This is currently being done by infiltrating school boards, mainstream and social media, Hollywood, professional sports, schools, and universities – the socialists are winning the information war in America. Conservative and religious groups are suppressed to communicate thoughts and messages.
Is it too late for America to recover? No. But the socialists are not targeting me to change, they are just waiting for my generation to fade away. They are focused on the youth in America; trying to convince them the freedoms we currently enjoy in America are outdated and their way is better. Don’t allow the death of freedom and liberty in America. Once it is gone it will never return.
