Author : Horus 莲花
The CCP virus pandemic and the killing of George Floyd made a “perfect storm” for people who have been longing for a revolution in the US. The violence and looting demonstrated their intention was not for justice but chaos and crisis. The forces behind are yet to be identified. But the seeds, the ideological subversion, have been planted decades ago according to Yuri Bezmenov, an ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector back to 1984. This article is to reveal the danger in America today: the CCP is the Soviet Union decades ago.
The following transcript was from G. Edward Griffin’s shocking video interview, Soviet Subversion of the Free-World Press (1984), with ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov who decided to openly reveal KGB’s subversive tactics against western society as a whole. Bezmenov explains how Jewish Marxist ideology is destabilizing the economy and purposefully pushing the U.S. into numerous crises so that a “Big Brother” tyranny can be put into place in Washington.
Bezmenov was born in 1939 in Mytishchi near Moscow to a high ranking Soviet Army officer. At the age of seventeen he entered the Institute of Oriental Languages a part of the Moscow State University, which was under the direct control of the KGB and the Communist Central Committee. In addition to languages, he studied history, literature, and music, and became an expert on Indian culture. Yuri Bezmenov was specialized in the fields of Marxist-Leninist propaganda and ideological subversion.
The Interview Transcript
G. Edward Griffin: Well, you spoke several times before about ideological subversion. That is a phrase that I’m afraid some Americans don’t fully understand. When the Soviets use the phrase ideological subversion and what do they mean by that?
Yuri Bezmenov: Ideological subversion is the process, which is legitimate, overt, and open. Y ou can see it with your own eyes. All you have to do, all-American mass media has to do is to unplug their bananas from the ears and open up their eyes and they can see it. There is no mystery. There is nothing to do with espionage. I know that espionage intelligence gathering looks more romantic. It sells more the audience through the advertising probably. That’s why your Hollywood producers are so crazy about James Bond type of thrillers. But in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area of intelligence at all according to my opinion and opinion of many defectors of my caliber. 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 or 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 of 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 brainwashing process which goes very slow. And it’s divided in four basic stages.
The first one is 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 requires 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 60s, drop-outs, or half-baked intellectuals are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and 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 the basic perception and the logical behavior. In other words the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To get rid of these people you have, 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 the United States society.
G. Edward Griffin: And yet these people have been programmed and as you say in place, who are favorable to an opening with the Soviet concept. These are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this country.
Yuri Bezmenov: Most of them, yes simply because the psychological shock when they will see in future what the beautiful society of equality and social justice means in practice. Obviously they will revolt. They will be very unhappy, frustrated people. And the Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. They obviously will join the links of dissenters and dissidents. Unlike in present United States, there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America. Here you can get popular people like Daniel Ellsberg and filthy rich like Jane Fonda for being dissident for criticizing your Pentagon. In future these people will be simply squashed like cockroaches. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful noble ideas of equality. This they don’t understand and it will be greatest shock for them of course. The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually it’s over fulfilled because a demoralization now reaches such areas where previously not even Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such a tremendous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before 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, even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him concentration camp, he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military boot crashes him, then he will understand, but not before that. That’s the tragic of the situation of demoralization. So basically America is stuck with demoralization. Even if you start right now here this minute, you start educating new generation of American. 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 a subverter does not care about your ideas and the patterns of your consumption, whether you eat junk food and get fat and floppy. It doesn’t matter anymore. This time takes only from two to five years to destabilize a nation. What matters is essentials: economy, foreign relations, and defense systems. And you can see quite clearly that in some areas, in such sensitive areas 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 will 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 so-called the period of normalization. It may last indefinitely. Normalization is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda. When the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, comrade Brezhnev said now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized. This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all the Schmucks to bring the country to crisis, to promise people all kinds of goodies, and the paradise on earth just to disturbulize your economy to eliminate the principle of free market competition and to put a big brother government in Washington DC with the benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise loads of things never mind whether the promises are fulfilled or not. He will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of new generation of Soviet assassins never mind he will create false illusions that the situation is under control. Situation is not under control. Situation is disgustingly out of control. Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system trains another generation of people who think they are living at the peace time. False. The United States is in the state of war, undeclared total war against the basic principles and the foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not comrade Andropov of course. It’s the system. However ridiculous it may sound the world communist system or the world communist conspiracy, whether they scare some people or not, I don’t give a hoot if you are not scared. By now nothing can scare you. But you don’t have to be paranoid about it. What actually happens now that unlike myself you have literally several years to live on unless United States wake up. The time bomb is ticking with every second. The disaster is coming closer and closer. Unlike myself you will have nowhere to defect to unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is it. This is the last country of freedom and possibility.
G. Edward Griffin: Okay, so what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?
Yuri Bezmenov: Well the immediate thing that comes to my mind is of course there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism. That’s number one. Number two, to explain them the real danger of socialist or communist whatever welfare state Big Brother government. If people will fail to grasp the impending danger of their development, nothing ever can help United States. You may kiss goodbye to your freedom including freedoms to homosexuals and to a prison inmate. All this freedom will vanish, evaporated in five seconds including your precious lies. At the moment at least part of United States population is convinced that the danger is real. They have to force their government. And I’m not talking about sending letters, signing petitions, and all this beautiful noble activity. I am talking about forcing the United States government to stop aiding communism because there is no other problem more burning and urgent than to stop the Soviet military industrial complex from destroying whatever is left of the free world. And it is very easy to do. No credits, no technology, no money, no political or diplomatic recognition, and of course no such idiocy as grain deals to USSR. The Soviet people, two hundred seventy millions of Soviets, will be eternally thankful to you if you stop aiding a bunch of murderers who sit now in Kremlin and whom President Reagan respectfully calls government. They do not govern anything least of all such complexity as the Soviet economy. So, very simple. Maybe too simplistic answers or solutions, but they are the only solutions: educate yourself and understand what’s going on around you. You are not living at the time of peace; you are in a state of war and you have precious little time to save yourself. You don’t have much time especially if you are talking about young generation there’s not much time left for convulsions and sexual masturbation to the beautiful disco music. Very soon it will go just overnight if we are talking about capitalists or wealthy businessmen. I think they are selling the rope on which they will hang very soon. If they don’t stop it and they cannot curb the unsettle desire for profit, and if they keep on trading with the monster of the Soviet Communism, they’re going to hang very soon. And then they will pray to be killed. But unfortunately they will be sent to Alaska probably to manage industry of slaves. It’s simplistic. I know it sounds unpleasant. I know Americans don’t like to listen to things which are unpleasant, but I have defected not to tell you the stories about such idiocies as microfilm James Bond type espionage. This is garbage. You don’t need any espionage anymore. I have come to talk about survival. It’s a question of survival of this system. And you may ask me what is it in for me? Survival, obviously because as I said I am now in your boat. If we sink together, we will sink beautifully together. There is no other place on this planet to defect to.
Implication to today
Luckily, Mr. Bezmenov’s warning was heard in the late1980s. The USA defeated the Soviet Union. An immediate danger was eliminated. However, communism was not eliminated. It survived in China. With the foundation Soviet Union laid in America, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engaged in a war against America. Just repeat what Mr. Bezmenov said 36 years ago and replace Soviet Union with the CCP in bracket:
I am talking about forcing the United States government to stop aiding communism because there is no other problem more burning and urgent than to stop the [CCP] from destroying whatever is left of the free world. And it is very easy to do. No credits, no technology, no money, no political or diplomatic recognition, and of course no such idiocy as grain deals to [the CCP]. The [Chinese] people, 1.4 billion Chinese people, will be eternally thankful to you if you stop aiding a bunch of murderers who sit now in [Beijing] and whom President [Trump] respectfully calls government.
Can you see the history is repeating itself? It is about survival. The question is who will survive, the CCP or the free world?
