Soviet Cold War Subversion, Illuminism and Psy Ops

“I will force the enemy to take our strength for weakness, and our weakness for strength, and thus will turn his strength into weakness.” Sun Tzu
Ours is an era of integration, unification and conglomeration. Arising from that trend came the Cold War: a fascinating phenomenon of two superpowers that supposedly waged a planetary battle of western “freedom” versus eastern “communism” for control of the world. The reality is that this battle was both engineered and real. Insofar as Mao was concerned, we know David Rockefeller praised Mao’s “revolution” in his famous 1979 editorial. Upon visiting China, Rockefeller mentions Deng Xiaoping’s “capitalist” reforms, which led to the modern third way experience in China today. Rockefeller also mentions this at length in his autobiography, Memoirs.
In this way, a top western elite provides a great example of how, at times, the Cold War was furthered and aided by western finance. One can see this as well in examples of western aid to build up Soviet power under Roosevelt, an obvious communist. Under FDR, countless Soviet and communist agents of change and outright spies were allowed to enter the U.S. Truman and McCarthy attempted to reverse this trend by taking action to discover the Soviet spies allegedly existing at all levels of western power. Recent release of Soviet archives shows these allegations to be correct: there were hundreds of Soviet spies at all levels of government, as the Philby affair shows for the United Kingdom.
This trend continued into the 1980s, with the Cold War purportedly reviving under Reagan and the attempt to stop the “evil empire” and Gorbachev from destroying the last bastion of freedom. Kruschev had previously threatened at the United Nations that he would infiltrate and destroy the West from within, and the Cold War continued supposedly until the fall of the wall. Pope John Paul II also took credit with Reagan in this facade of ending the battle, with perestroika, an openness to the West, as the sign of victory. During this time, important Central Intelligence and MI6 analysts were saying otherwise.
Based on the revelations of defectors like Masterspy Oleg Penkovsky, Anatoliy Golitsyn, and Soviet psychological warfare expert, Yuri Bezmenov, western intelligence agents like Maurice Oldfield and James Jesus Angleton thought otherwise: it looked as if the long-term Soviet strategy was precisely one of a feigned defenselessness. What if communist subversion meant the incremental, gradual plan of decades-long infiltration, subversion, and psychological warfare, that was meant to take down the West through covert means, as opposed to nuclear means? What if the Soviet plan had not ended with the fall of some wall in Germany?
There is plenty of evidence to back up this conclusion. This does not mean, however, that certain Western elites never aided communism, nor that the Cold War was all a facade. While at the top of the pyramid the elites are international (as can be seen from Rockefeller’s Memoirs), the government classes of both East and West waged a real war. The reality is the communists/Soviets won World War II, and from thenceforth have won the culture war. Western elites have retained their capitalist beliefs in theory, yet the present globo-capital corporatocracy is much closer to a fascist/socialist internationalism of the left than any older model of the free market.
The global upper class thus function with an international capitalist praxis, while the lower classes are being socially engineered into a multicultural blob of nanny state socialism. To make a long story short, it is as if we are seeing a convergence of these two “ways” into a global “third way,” yet even this is inaccurate, as the fact of the matter is, these systems are targeted for different classes. For the middle and lower classes, the target is socialism, communism and urbanism, engineered by the United Nations for certain corporate interests. This is why we observe the same trends in all nations towards IMF involvement, centralized economic planning through megabank machinations, and a fiat-based currency, with exorbitant high taxes and virulent socialism. It is as if the Fabian socialists, the communists, the fascists and American capitalists were all social experiments to determine the utility of different systems in action: the best way to do an experiment. Yet in these system’s outworkings, we see real warfare, and that is crucial.
One constantly hears in American alternative media the claims of the Anglo-American establishment’s usage of false flag terrorism, for example. One almost never hears in western media, however, Russian and Chinese use of terror tactics and authoritarianism. We hear all day about Al Qaeda and Islamic terror, but we do not hear about Russian and Chinese terror and espionage, aside from a few news articles here and there that reveal astounding tactics on the part of both nations. Both China and Russia are constantly caught using spy rings to infiltrate and surveil the West, yet in turn, the western elite seem to welcome and allow this subversion. From the think tank machinations of the Rand Corporation to the Brookings Institute and the CFR, the western approach appears to be one of welcomed attack on the west itself. The Anglo elite seem to have adopted the policies of the supposed enemy to such a degree that it almost necessitates some deeper, hidden purpose.
For all intents and purposes, we can accurately say that the socialists/communists have won and are still winning. Almost the entire west has adopted the point by point model of communist infiltration and subversion. So even if there are certain western elites who funded communism, the accusation of many analysts that the danger of sovietism/communism is no longer a threat is downright false, bordering on astounding falsehood. Regardless of whether big capital has funded communism at times, the present force of destruction is unmistakenly red. In 1963 the HUAC produced a point by point plan of communistic subversion of the west that, 50 years later, is no longer a theory. When one grasps the immensity and success of this formula, combined with the indepth correlations and intrigues still going on, it is impossible to deny.
To what end? Certainly not all the Anglo elites are secret communists, but the release of the red threat from any restraint has facilitated an almost complete cultural success of red subversion. As we learn from Soviet psych warfare manuals and experts, the funding and promotion of all things “alternative” is key. From the perspective of warfare, the enemy must be demoralized and defeated mentally, as the classic Art of War of Sun-Tzu explains. Thus most of the energy in espionage will be spent in mass media psy ops and propaganda with the intention of capturing the mind of the enemy populace. The enemy’s forces are only as powerful as they are united, so the art of dividing the enemy is the first and foremost goal. During the 1950s and 60s this was done through racial uprisings and student uprisings, both supported by the communists in America.
To understand the end of communism and red terror, it is important to understand its origin: Bavarian Illuminism. The so-called “Illuminati” were a rationalist sect of socialists seeking liberty, equality and fraternity, as outlined in the French Revolution. This was a revolution that followed upon the “scientific revlution,” with gnosis, or knowledge as the key to man’s salvation and apotheosis. Rather than a cadre of devil worshippers, the Illuminists sought freedom from dogma and superstition, yet the manifestations of the Jacobins in France were anything but tolerant utopian bliss. Instead, there was mass terror, and in the analysis of terrorism, it is crucial to understand the french terror: the font from which all modern state terror arises. From the Jacobins other sects learned terrorism, with the spread of ideological socialism/communism falling to the Frankfurt School in Germany, Antionio Gramsci in Italy, and the various Bolshevik and Soviet bloc figures. It is here that we see the expansion of weaponized culture. In fact, the previously mentioned Soviet 45 point psy op plan investigated by HUAC in 1963 noted this, as we see a total cultural overthrow through subversion:
“15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
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, natural, healthy.”
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. (Source)
It is thus self-evident that this is the game plan the system has adopted to destroy the West. And the West has happily obliged, as cultural Marxism is now the acceptable norm, even if not the economic norm (yet). The demoralization and destruction of the morale and unity of the populace and the capturing of the mind is precisely the goal of psychological warfare, as I mentioned above. Joel Skousen is correct in his analysis of the hidden nature of the communism in our age. It is not dead, it is alive in well in culture, and still covertly operating among the bureaucratic class.
This is where Anatoliy Golitsyn comes in as a crucial figure able to predict the fall of the Berlin Wall. We read about Golitsyn:
In 1984, Golitsyn published the book New Lies For Old, wherein he predicted the collapse of the communist bloc orchestrated from above. He warned about a long-term deception strategy designed to lull the West into a false sense of security, and finally economically cripple and diplomatically isolate the United States. Among other things, Golitsyn stated:
・ “The ‘liberalization’ [in the Soviet Union] would be spectacular and impressive. Formal pronouncements might be made about a reduction in the communist party’s role; its monopoly would be apparently curtailed.”
・ “If [liberalization] should be extended to East Germany, demolition of the Berlin Wall might even be contemplated.”
・ “The Eurpoean Union might become an all-European socialist parliament with representation from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. ‘Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals’ would turn out to be a neutral, socialist Europe.”
Angleton and Golitsyn reportedly sought the assistance of William F. Buckley (who once worked for the CIA) in writing New Lies for Old. Buckley refused but later went on to write a novel about Angleton, Spytime: The Undoing of James Jesus Angleton.” (Source)
Oddly, in Stephen Dorril’s lengthy analysis of MI6, there are odd statements regarding this prediction, as well as Angleton and Maurice Oldfield’s actions. In fact, it was not until 1961 that the West had its first detailed chain of command chart for the Soviet hierarchy, Dorril notes, from the ARNIKA document leak of Oleg Penkovsky. Yet while Dorril admits the importance of the leaks from Penkovsky and Golitsin, Dorril disdains the “conspiratorial” claims of Golitsyn and Penkovsky, they were able to convince masterspy James Jesus Angleton of their validity, as well as several top MI6 analysts like Maurice Oldfield. Also up for debate was the question of the Sino-Soviet split as real or also a deception. (See Dorril, MI6: Inside the Covert World of Her Majesty’s Seceret Intelligence Service, 703-715).
Have we not seen the very things Golitsyn predicted? Have we not seen the integration and socialization of Europe as well as the fall of Berlin Wall? Have we not seen the Marxist and red terror explosion in the last few decades? Have we not seen the total victory of cultural Marxism? Without a doubt, even if Golitsyn was wrong, he was right.
