Former KGB Agent’s Warning to U.S. regarding Communist Ideological Subversion
1984 Warning Regarding Ideological Subversion in the United States
“The main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area of intelligence at all… 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 to such an extent that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interests of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country. It’s a great brain washing process which goes very slow and it’s divided into four basic stages.
The first one 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 which is required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of the enemy in other words Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism/American Patriotism, the result, you can see most of the people who graduated in the sixties, drop outs or half-baked intellectuals are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system, you are stuck with them, you cannot get rid of them, they are contaminated, they are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern, you cannot 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 cannot change their basic perception and illogical behavior, in other words for these people the process of Demoralization is complete and irreversible.
To rid society of these people you need another 20 or 15 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 Demoralization process in the United States is basically completed, already for the last 25 years, actually it’s over fulfilled… Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. Exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information, the facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information… with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures… he will refuse to believe it until he receives a kick in his fat bottom… then he will understand but not before that. That is the tragedy of the situation of Demoralization. So basically, America is stuck with Demoralization and unless, even if you start right now here this minute, you start educating the new generation of Americans, it will still take you 15 to 20 years to turn the tide of ideological perception of reality back to normalcy and patriotism.
The next stage is Destabilization. This time the subverter does not care about your ideas and the patterns of your consumption, this time, and it takes only from 2 to 5 years to destabilize the nation, what matters are essentials: Economy, Foreign Relations, Defense Systems, and you can see it quite clearly in sensitive areas such as Defense and Economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never believe it 14 years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process would go that fast.
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 the so-called period of Normalization. It may last indefinitely. Normalization is a cynical expression born from Soviet propoganda when the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia. In ’68 Comrade Brezhnev said ‘Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized. This is what will happen to the United States if you allow all these schmucks to bring the country to crisis. They’ll promise people all kinds of goodies and paradise on Earth to destabilize your economy, to eliminate the principle of free market competition and to put a big brother government in Washington, D.C. with benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise lots of things, nevermind whether the promises are fulfilled or not, he will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of the new generation of Soviet Assassins. 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 education system trains another generation of people who think they are living at peacetime, 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… however ridiculous it may sound, is 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… Unlike myself, you will have nowhere to defect to… This is it, this is the last country of freedom and impossibility.”
