Recently, Donna Calvin of BeliefNet.com published a list of the 45 communist goals as read into the congressional record in the year 1963 by Hon. A. S. Herlong Jr. of Florida, who was quoting from Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” The 45 steps towards the introduction of a communist state are as follows:
The statists among us must weaken our country to the point where the people believe surrender and coexistence is more important than military strength and national security. To do this, they often use scare tactics, such as the idea that the only alternative to coexistence is atomic war.
Much like goal number one, the idea here is to make the people believe that surrender is the only real, legitimate option.
You often hear the liberals say that the United States should adopt stricter gun laws because it is the moral thing to do. This too is just another step in their elaborate plan to bring about totalitarianism in America – they need you to be unarmed and incapable of defending yourself.
Put simply, this is a tactic used to get the people to let their guard down when it comes to the advancement of foreign communist nations.
If the goal is to put America on a path towards totalitarianism, then it only makes sense that those seeking this transformation would want to force us to follow behind nations who are already there.
The transformation of America into a communist country requires us to be actively supporting other communist nations around the world.
In order for totalitarianism in the United States to be more widely accepted, it is crucial that the statists bolster up the idea of communism on the global stage.
To those who embrace the rise of communism, the destruction of individual liberty is the ultimate goal. It is imperative that they do away with free elections and make moves to consolidate power into fewer and fewer hands.
If communism is to become the dominant ideology, then those who might resist must be rendered defenseless. America’s military strength has got to be diminished if a centralized authority is to successfully take over.
The injection of more Soviet propaganda into American society will only make the progressives’ quest to bring about a tyrannical state more acceptable to the public.
The U.N. is the primary vehicle that the left uses to amass more and more power into the hands of fewer and fewer. As such, the public must view it in a positive light and embrace its existence.
Obviously, if communism is to become the dominant ideology in the United States, then the Communist Party cannot be outlawed.
All loyalty oaths must be done away with so that the people become solely committed to the communist state and nothing else.
In the left’s slow and steady journey to bring about communism in the United States, close cooperation with the Russian government is key.
It’s obvious that the communists and the statists have taken over the Democrat Party, and there is a strong argument to be made that they are beginning to take over the Republican Party as well.
One of the best examples of this is the left’s assault on the institution of marriage, which they insist must be redefined to include same-sex couples so as to protect the civil rights of all Americans.
The introduction of communist propaganda in to America’s education system is an area where the Left has been incredibly successful. They are brainwashing an entire generation through various lectures and textbooks, all of which promote, in one way or another, big government.
If the goal is to successfully brainwash the upcoming generation with communist propaganda, it only makes sense that the communists would need to gain control of all student newspapers.
The progressives know that they should never let a tragedy go to waste. If a particularly tense or even violent situation can be exploited to advance the communist agenda, then it will be.
The press is a very powerful tool when it comes to getting the public to think a certain way, and the progressives know it.
By infiltrating radio, television and Hollywood, the statists can more easily promote their totalitarian agenda to the American people.
In order to establish a communist state, American culture must be done away with. We see this all the time when the left insists on taking down certain historical statues and public displays of the Ten Commandments.
Once again, if a communist state is to be established, American traditions and culture must be diminished.
The modern day progressives seem to be doing the exact opposite of this step. Instead of eliminating censorship laws, they are moving the United States closer towards tyranny by openly embracing them.
America’s embrace of pornography and obscene realty television shows is a clear indication that, at least with regards to this particular step, the statists are succeeding.
The statists among us promote the idea that homosexuality and promiscuity are normal and natural, and the public is more than happy to play along. This helps bring about the decay of the civil society at a more rapid rate.
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with social religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
Religion and the Bible are to be discredited so that a centralized state can become more widely accepted. All traditions and values of the past must be expelled from American society.
Despite the fact that the phrase “separation of church and state” has been twisted and morphed over the past couple of centuries, the progressives see it as a vehicle to detach the American people from their religious roots.
The statists understand that the Constitution was originally written in order to restrain the federal government and protect individual liberty, neither of which are acceptable if communism is to become the dominant ideology in America. Therefore, the Constitution must be entirely discarded.
Much like the Constitution, the Founding Fathers must be discredited, because their ideas go against everything that communism stands for.
If upcoming generations are taught accurate American history, then they will know how to avoid the mistakes of the past, or worse, possibly even appreciate our country’s unique founding. As such, American history is to be minimalized and rendered unimportant.
If communism is to take over America, then no part of American society can remain unregulated or free from government control.
All things that stand in the way of the establishment of a totalitarian system, such as the United States Constitution, must be done away with if any progress is to be made.
The House Committee on Un-American Activities, which investigated allegations of communist activity during the start of the Cold War, was to be done away with. It has been.
If the goal is to introduce a new oppressive set of laws in the United States, then obviously the old laws – and those who work to enforce them – have to go. The existence of the FBI would be a threat to a rising communist state.
The more control over the various parts of American society that the statists can obtain, the better it will be for them.
A true communist state cannot sustain itself while the people are allowed to actively participate in a free market economic system. Therefore, the statists must infiltrate and gain control over big business and the means of production.
Even one’s mental health and the treatment they receive to stabilize it is to be controlled by the government.
Rebels are not to be tolerated. As such, the statists believe in taking over the health industry and the psychiatric profession as a means of ensuring that there will be complete conformity.
Family values have been a part of American society since the time of our founding. In order to bring about societal decay, the family unit must be broken apart.
Under a communist system, the state has to be to sole provider, not the parents. As such, mothers and fathers are to be rendered irrelevant.
The progressives feed off of chaos, because more times than not they can exploit it for their own personal gain. Many of them even encourage it, and brainwash the public into thinking that rioting in the name of what they think is virtuous is morally acceptable.
Self-government cannot exist if tyranny is to gain a foothold. The only government that can legitimately be established is centralized and of a totalitarian nature
Internationalizing the Panama Canal will bring America and the entire world that much closer to the establishment of an all-powerful centralized state.
The establishment of a World Court will no doubt bring America and the rest of the world closer to a New World Order, whereby individual liberty is discarded and power is to be surrendered to a massive governmental leviathan.
