CHAPTER 94 COMMUNIST LEADERS SPEAK THEIR MINDS
American Life League

The whole system we live under is completely worthless, and no basic change for the better can come about until this system is overthrown.

Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party of the USA.[1]

Anti-Life Philosophy.

Communism, like capitalism, is merely an economic system, and the morality and ethics of all economic systems are neutral and equal. As a practical matter, however, Communism is superior and will eventually dominate the world.

The Means of Revolution.

The Intermediate Goal.

Many if not all Left-wing organizations, including some labor unions, abortion-rights groups, 'gay' liberation groups, 'peace and justice' groups and others, have been shown to be heavily infiltrated or influenced by Marxist, Socialist, Trostkyite and Communist ideas, persons and organizations. All of these groups seem to work together in relative harmony and solidarity.

This is natural, since the primary goal of all of these groups is to weaken the democratic system by emphasizing limitless individual rights over collective rights in the targeted country (see Chapter 95 on Lenin's "Rules for Revolution" for further details).

Once the revolution has occurred, the situation is suddenly reversed; individual rights are stripped away, and the interests of the State take immediate and total precedence.

Command vs. Personal Interests.

Of course, a healthy and properly-functioning democracy emphasizes personal rights as well, but with a difference: The individual retains responsibility for his actions. From an economic standpoint, however, Communism emphasizes the collective or command interest, and Capitalism emphasizes the personal interest. For example;

• The Communist works, not to improve his standard of living, but to meet quotas that will benefit the collective, and ultimately, of course, the State.

• The Chinese woman has an abortion, not to exercise her personal rights, but for the good of the State.

Not coincidentally, "New Age" beliefs also give the collective interest priority over the individual's interests. Examples are "population control" and "family planning" for the good of the planet; Earth First! - type environmental action; the existence of groups like "Animal Rights Activists for Choice," and other entities and individuals that place the value of animal life above that of human life.

Christianity vs. Communism.

Despite the unseemly squawking of groups like People for the 'American' Way, the principle of democracy is based on Christian values, and so recognizes the value of the individual as the possessor of a God-given immortal soul. On the other hand, atheistic Communism must look toward the false immortality of the State's future generations, and must therefore "struggle" to build an "ideal Socialistic world" for them.

The ultimate result is that, in a Communist society, self-interest takes precedence over the welfare of the society or of the country. The leaders accumulate vast wealth for themselves, and the workers cut corners and goof off whenever they can.

History has repeatedly demonstrated to us that this combination of influences is the most important step towards total decadence and the destruction of the 'infected' society.

How Many Detentes?

In these giddy days of 'Glasnost,' 'perestroika,' and 'detente,' many legislators and well-meaning but naive individuals have been seduced by the Communists into thinking that the Reds really desire cooperation and peace. Anyone who still believes the talk of "detente" is either a fool or a lunatic, because we are now on our fifth such 'honeymoon.'

How did the first four end?

• Detente No. 1 ended when the Communists invaded Czechoslovakia and
   blockaded Berlin.
• Detente No. 2 ended when the Communists invaded Hungary in 1956.
• Detente No. 3 ended when the Communists erected the Berlin Wall.
• Detente No. 4 ended when the Communists invaded Afghanistan in 1979.

It is interesting that the word 'detente' was extracted from the French, and originally had a double meaning: (1) To lessen tension and (2) to pull the trigger!

How many more "detentes" will we stupidly endure before we either wake up or are annihilated ourselves?

Communist Leaders Reveal the Truth.

The following quotes, all from leaders of the former Soviet Union, show beyond the faintest shadow of a doubt that the ultimate aim of Communism is the violent overthrow of the United States government. Even the Revolutionary Communist Party of the United States freely admits this, as shown in the opening quote by its Chairman, Bob Avakian.

War to the hilt between Communism and Capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 or 30 years. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalistic countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we will smash them with our clenched fist.

Dimitry Z. Manulsky, to the Lenin School of Political Warfare, 1931.

Destroy a nation's morality, and it will fall in your lap like ripe fruit from a tree.

Vladimir Lenin, who died of syphilis. Quoted in Lenin: Selected Works. 3 Volumes, 2,225 pages. Distributed in English by Progress Publishers, 21, Zubovsky Boulevard, Moscow, and available in Marxist-Leninist bookstores and political science libraries at local colleges.

The more representatives of the reactionary bourgeoisie and the reactionary clergy that we manage to shoot the better. Now is the time to teach the public such a lesson that for many decades they will not dare even to think of any sort of resistance.

Lenin's August 22, 1922 letter to the Politbureau. Quoted by the Keeston News Service, National Catholic Register, July 1, 1990, page 8.

What does it matter if three-quarters of the world perish, as long as the remaining one-quarter is Communist?

Vladimir Lenin. Quoted in Lenin: Selected Works, cited above.

We must practice co-existence with other nations, until we are strong enough to take over by world revolution ... We are not pacifists. Conflict is inevitable. Great political questions can only be solved by violence ... It is inconceivable that Communism and Democracy can exist side by side in the world. Inevitably, one must perish.

Vladimir Lenin. Quoted in Lenin: Selected Works, cited above.

Promises are like pie crust, made to be broken.

Vladimir Lenin. Quoted in Lenin: Selected Works, cited above.

Words are one thing, actions another.

                                                                                                                Josef Stalin.

We will find our greatest success to the extent that we inculcate Marxism as a kind of religion: Religious men and women are easy to convert and win, and so will easily accept our thinking if we wrap it up in a kind of religious terminology.

Vladimir Lenin. Quoted in Lenin: Selected Works, cited above.

It is our duty to inculcate in the minds of all nations the theories of international friendship, pacifism, and disarmament, encouraging resistance to military appropriations and training, at the some time, however, never for one moment relaxing our efforts in the upbuilding of our military establishment.

Alexi Rykov, President of the Council of Commissars.

You should not take too seriously the treaties we make with the Imperialists. Lenin, too, signed a treaty after World War I that remained valid only so long as it proved necessary.

Nikita Khrushchev, to the East German Commissariat, 1959.

Soviet Russia is growing in strength each day. When the time is ripe, we will strike, comrade. In one day we will wipe out all the American war bases from Spain to Alaska. And on the very same day, the one hundred most important Americans will die. Some of them will be poisoned, some crushed under falling rocks, some in 'unavoidable' automobile accidents. The sooner these American exploiters, these bloodsuckers of the poor are liquidated, the better.

Russian General Sascha Korotkov, as quoted by B. Moris in his book, My Ten Years as a Counterspy.

In October 1917, we parted with the Old World, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, the world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road.

Mikhail "Gorby" Gorbachev, darling of the American press, November 2, 1987.

He has a broad smile, but teeth of steel.

Former Soviet President Andrei Gromyko, upon appointing Gorbachev General Secretary of the Communist Party. Quoted in USA Today, April 26, 1989, page 1.

We Communist Party members are the most advanced revolutionaries in modern history ... the enemy must be wiped out from the face of the earth before a Communist world can be realized.

Nelson Mandela, during his 1962 trial for terrorism. Quoted in The Wanderer, July 1, 1990, page 6.

The Party has been, and remains, the main organizing and coordinating force capable of leading the people along the path of profound Socialist renewal ... Perestroika will not work without the Party and its fundamental influence on all aspects of social life.

We say perestroika is the renewal of Socialism, but not its dismantling. We say perestroika is revolutionary transformation, the elimination of the deformation of Socialism, but not the restoration of Capitalism. We say perestroika is the revival of creative Marxism, a new awareness of Leninist ideas ...

Mikhail Gorbachev, quoted in Cal Thomas, "Mikhail Gorbachev Shows His Teeth of Steel." Conservative Chronicle, January 14, 1991, page 13.

In the Soviet Union, we stop believing Communist Party propaganda at about the age of 10. Then I come to the United States and hear your Soviet experts parroting Soviet propaganda in universities that we dismissed in elementary school.

Lev Navrosov, a Soviet Jew who emigrated to the United States in 1972. Quoted in Charley Reese. "The Man With the Teeth of Steel." Conservative Chronicle, January 24, 1991, page 24.

Peter Collier and David Horowitz. Destructive Generation.
New York: Summit Books, 1989. Reviewed by George Sim Johnston in the May 7, 1989 issue of the National Catholic Register, page 5. Collier and Horowitz were in on the birth of the noisy New Left in the early 1960s. They believed sincerely that United States society was totally corrupt, and that it could not be rehabilitated only destroyed. This book charts their journey from this philosophy, which they found to be totalitarian and totally rigid in its thinking, to the more rational point of view that they now hold. They say that a hardened remnant of the New Left remains, only because the media continues to prop it up. This book, written by two persons who were once part of the hypocrisy and narrow-minded thinking of the Left, makes fascinating and informative reading. It will confirm many of your common-sense hunches about the radical Left.
