|It's a big club
"The politicians are put there to give you the
idea that you have freedom of choice... you don't. You have no choice. You have owners.
They own you. They own everything. They own
all the important land. They own, and control
Theyíve long since bought,
and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the
state houses, the city halls, they got the
judges in their back pockets and they own all
the big media companies, so they control just
about all of the news and information you get
They got you by the balls. They spend billions
of dollars every year lobbying . . . lobbying,
to get what they want . . .
Well, we know what they want. They want more
for themselves and less for everybody else,
but Iíll tell you what they donít want . . .
they donít want a population of citizens
capable of critical thinking. They donít want
well informed, well educated people capable of
Theyíre not interested in
that . . . that doesnít help them. Thatís against their
interests. Thatís right. They donít want
people who are smart enough to sit around a
kitchen table and think about how badly
theyíre getting fucked by a system that threw
them overboard 30 fuckin' years ago.
donít want that. You know what they want? They
want obedient workers . . .
Obedient workers, people who are just smart
enough to run the machines and do the
paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively
accept all these increasingly shittier jobs
with the lower pay, the longer hours, the
reduced benefits, the end of overtime and
vanishing pension that disappears the minute
you go to collect it, and now theyíre coming
for your Social Security money.
They want your
fuckin' retirement money. They want it back so

By the way, itís the same big club they use to

beating you over the head with their media
telling you what to believe, what to think and
what to buy.
The table has tilted folks. The
game is rigged and nobody seems to notice.
Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working
people . . . white collar, blue collar it

Good honest hard-working people continue,

They donít care about you at all . . . at all
. . . at all, and nobody seems to notice.
Nobody seems to care. Thatís what the owners
count on. The fact that Americans will
probably remain willfully ignorant of the big
red, white and blue dick thatís being jammed
up their assholes everyday, because the owners
of this country know the truth.

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 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
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
My philosophy is based on the principle of self-ownership.
Philosophy of Liberty
own your life. To deny this is to imply that another person
has a higher claim on your life than you do.
No other person,
or group of persons, owns your life nor do you own the lives
of others. You exist in time: future, present, and past. This
is manifest in life, liberty, and the product of your life and
The exercise of choices over life and liberty is your prosperity.
To lose your life is to lose your future. To lose your liberty
is to lose your present. And to lose the product of your life
and liberty is to lose the portion of your past that produced
A product of your life and liberty is your property. Property
is the fruit of your labor, the product of your time, energy,
and talents. It is that part of nature that you turn to valuable
And it is the property of others that is given to you by
voluntary exchange and mutual consent. Two people who exchange
property voluntarily are both better off or they wouldn't do
it. Only they may rightfully make that decision for themselves.
At times some people use force or fraud to take from others
without willful, voluntary consent. Normally, the initiation
of force to take life is murder, to take liberty is slavery,
and to take property is theft.
It is the same whether these
actions are done by one person acting alone, by the many acting
against a few, or even by officials with fine hats and fancy
You have the right to protect your own life, liberty, and justly
acquired property from the forceful aggression of others. So
you may rightfully ask others to help protect you.
But you do
not have a right to initiate force against the life, liberty,
or property of others. Thus, you have no right to designate
some person to initiate force against others on your behalf.
You have a right to seek leaders for yourself, but would have
no right to impose rulers on others.
No matter how officials
are selected, they are only human beings and they have no rights
or claims that are higher than those of any other human beings.
Regardless of the imaginative labels for their behavior or the
numbers of people encouraging them, officials have no right
to murder, to enslave, or to steal.
You cannot give them any rights that you do not have yourself.
Since you own your life, you are responsible for your life.
You do not rent your life from others who demand your obedience.
Nor are you a slave to others who demand your sacrifice.
You choose your own goals based on your own values. Success
and failure are both the necessary incentives to learn and to
Your action on behalf of others, or their action on behalf of
you, is only virtuous when it is derived from voluntary, mutual
consent. For virtue can only exist when there is free choice.
This is the basis of a truly free society. It is not only the
most practical and humanitarian foundation for human action;
it is also the most ethical.
Problems that arise from the initiation of force by government
have a solution. The solution is for people of the world to
stop asking officials to initiate force on their behalf.
does not arise only from evil people, but also from good people
who tolerate the initiation of force as a means to their own
ends. In this manner, good people have empowered evil throughout
Having confidence in a free society is to focus on the process
of discovery in the marketplace of values rather than to focus
on some imposed vision or goal.
Using governmental force to
impose a vision on others is intellectual sloth and typically
results in unintended, perverse consequences.
Achieving a free
society requires courage to think, to talk, and to act - especially
when it is easier to do nothing.
The Left/Right Paradigm
"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
They Want Your Soul
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation
of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important
element in democratic society.
Those who manipulate this unseen
mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the
true ruling power of our country."
by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and
ruled will increase until they` become almost different species. A revolt
of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection
of sheep against the practice of eating muttonÖ.
Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age,
to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the
authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers
that be will become psychologically impossible."
~Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society (1953)
"Everything thing we have, every great achievement has come from the
independent work of some independent mind.
Every horror and destruction
came from attempts to force men into a herd of brainless, soulless
robots. Without personal rights, without personal ambition, without
will, hope, or dignity. It is an ancient conflict. It has another name:
the individual against the collective."
~Howard Roark from Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead
ďThe best society, the best human existence, arrives when humans most
closely determine the truth, and act on the truth, and separate it from
superstition, falsity, or misinformation. And there is no better system
for determining the truth than free speech: Testing the validity of an idea
in the waters of public discussion and debate.Ē
ďYou cannot put a rope around the neck of an idea; you cannot put
an idea up against the barrack-square wall and riddle it with bullets; you
cannot confine it in the strongest prison cell your slaves could ever build.Ē
believe in only one thing: liberty; but I do not believe in
liberty enough to want to force it upon anyone."
