The Left/Right Paradigm: How You
|"The argument that the two
parties should represent opposed ideals
and policies, one,
perhaps, of the Right and the other of the
Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to
doctrinaire and academic thinkers.
Instead, the two parties should be almost
identical, so that the American people can
"throw the rascals out" at any election
without leading to any profound or
extensive shifts in policy."
~ Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope: A
History of the World in our Time
We are intellectual prostitutes
the foremost journalist of his day, was asked
to toast an independent press at a New York
banquet given in his honour by other
His response was clear and forthright:
“There is no such thing, at this stage
of the world’s history in America, as an
independent press. You know it and I know
There is not one of you who dare write your
honest opinions, and if you did, you know
beforehand that it would never appear in
print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest
opinions out of the paper I am connected with.
Other of you are paid similar salaries for
similar things, and any of you who would be
foolish as to write honest opinions would be
out on the streets looking for another job.
If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in
one issue of my papers, before twenty-four
hours my occupation would be gone.
“The business of the journalist is to destroy
the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to
vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to
sell his country and his race for his daily
bread. You know it and I know it, and what
folly is this toasting an independent press?
We are the jumping jacks, they pull the
strings and we dance. Our talents, our
possibilities and our lives are all the
property of other men.
“We are intellectual prostitutes.”
John Swinton, New York 1890
But, the world is more
|David Rockefeller speaking at the
Bilderberger meeting in June 1991 in Baden
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the
NY Times, Time Magazine and other great
publications whose directors have attended our
meetings and respected their promises of
discretion for almost 40 years....It would
have been impossible for us to develop our
plan for the world if we had been subjected to
the lights of publicity during those years.
But, the world is more
sophisticated and prepared to march towards a
world government. The supernational
sovereignty of an intellectual elite
and world bankers is surely preferable to the
national autodetermination practiced in past
The 'Problem-Reaction-Solution' Paradigm Works
1. The government creates or exploits a problem then attributes
blame to others.
2. The populace react by asking the government for protection
3. The government offers the solution that was planned long before
Outcome: Rights and liberties are exchanged for the illusion of
protection and help.
Ten Steps To Close Down an Open
Invoke a terrifying internal and external
Creating a terrifying threat – hydra-like,
secretive, evil – is an old trick.
2. Create a gulag and push torture as a good
Once you have got everyone scared, the next
step is to create a prison system outside the
rule of law(as Bush put it, he wanted the
American detention centre at Guantánamo Bay to
be situated in legal “outer space”) – where
torture takes place.
At first, the people who are sent there are
seen by citizens as outsiders: troublemakers,
spies, “enemies of the people” or “criminals”.
Initially, citizens tend to support the secret
prison system; it makes them feel safer and
they do not identify with the prisoners. But
soon enough, civil society leaders –
opposition members, labour activists, clergy
and journalists – are arrested and sent there
This process took place in fascist shifts or
anti-democracy crackdowns ranging from Italy
and Germany in the 1920s and 1930s
3. Develop a system which creates thugs
(militarized police, nationalize police)
When leaders who seek a “fascist shift” want
to close down an open society, they send
paramilitary groups of scary young men out to
terrorize citizens. The Blackshirts roamed the
Italian countryside beating up communists; the
Brownshirts staged violent rallies throughout
Germany. This paramilitary force is especially
important in a democracy: you need citizens to
fear thug violence and so you need thugs who
are free from prosecution.
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
NSA spying using internet and phone systems.
In closed societies, this surveillance is cast
as being about “national security”; the true
function is to keep citizens docile and
inhibit their activism and dissent.
5. Harass citizens’ groups
You infiltrate and harass citizens’ groups.
the American Civil Liberties Union reports
that thousands of ordinary American anti-war,
environmental and other groups have been
infiltrated by agents: a secret Pentagon
database includes more than four dozen
peaceful anti-war meetings, rallies or marches
by American citizens in its category of 1,500
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
This scares people. It is a kind of
cat-and-mouse game. In a closing or closed
society there is a “list” of dissidents and
opposition leaders: you are targeted in this
way once you are on the list, and it is hard
to get off the list.
7. Target key individuals
Constitutionalists, Journalists, Bloggers,
Religious, patriots, religions,
8. Control the press
Over time in closing societies, real news is
supplanted by fake news and false documents.
You won’t have a shutdown of news in modern
America – it is not possible. But you can
have, as Frank Rich and Sidney Blumenthal have
pointed out, a steady stream of lies polluting
the news well. What you already have is a
White House directing a stream of false
information that is so relentless that it is
increasingly hard to sort out truth from
untruth. In a fascist system, it’s not the
lies that count but the muddying. When
citizens can’t tell real news from fake, they
give up their demands for accountability bit
9. Dissent equals treason
Cast dissent as “treason” and criticism as
“espionage’. Every closing society does this,
just as it elaborates laws that increasingly
criminalise certain kinds of speech and expand
the definition of “spy” and “traitor”.
when Congress wrongly, foolishly, passed the
Military Commissions Act of 2006 and NDAA
(terrorist, domestic terrorist) – the
president has the power to call any US citizen
an “enemy combatant”. He has the power to
define what “enemy combatant” means. The
president can also delegate to anyone he
chooses in the executive branch the right to
define “enemy combatant” any way he or she
wants and then seize Americans accordingly.
10. Suspend the rule of law (Martial Law)
The president may now use military troops as a
domestic police force in response to a natural
disaster, a disease outbreak, terrorist attack
or any ‘other condition’.”
Critics see this as a clear violation of the
Posse Comitatus Act – which was meant to
restrain the federal government from using the
military for domestic law enforcement. It also
violates the very reason the founders set up
our system of government as they did.
Defining Characteristics Of Fascism
| 1. Powerful and
Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make
constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols,
songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen
everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because
of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people
in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can
be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The
people tend to look the other way or even approve of
torture, summary executions, assassinations, long
incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying
Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic
frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common
threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities;
liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are
domestic problems, the military is given a
disproportionate amount of government funding, and the
domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military
service are glamorized.
5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations
tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under
fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more
rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are
suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate
guardian of the family institution.
6. Controlled Mass Media -
Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the
government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly
controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic
media spokespeople and executives. Censorship,
especially in war time, is very common.
7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a
motivational tool by the government over the masses.
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments
in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion
in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion.
Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from
government leaders, even when the major tenets of the
religion are diametrically opposed to the government's
policies or actions.
9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and
business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the
ones who put the government leaders into power, creating
a mutually beneficial business/government relationship
and power elite.
10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing
power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist
government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely,
or are severely suppressed.
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist
nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to
higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for
professors and other academics to be censored or even
arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is
12. Obsession with Crime and
Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given
almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are
often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego
civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is
often a national police force with virtually unlimited
power in fascist nations.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes
almost always are governed by groups of friends and
associates who appoint each other to government
positions and use governmental power and authority to
protect their friends from accountability. It is not
uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and
even treasures to be appropriated or even outright
stolen by government leaders.
14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in
fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times
elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or
even assassination of opposition candidates, use of
legislation to control voting numbers or political
district boundaries, and manipulation of the media.
Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to
manipulate or control elections.

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
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic
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
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
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's
promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections
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
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the
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
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American
institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the 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,
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."
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, etcetera.
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
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.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot
prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic
problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals
