How to Brainwash a Nation

In America we are currently engaged in a “worldview war”. The strategy being used to conquer the United States from within was penned 500 years before Christ by the Chinese general, strategist, and philosopher Sun Tzu (544 BC – 496 BC). In his book “The Art of War” he wrote:

“All warfare is based primarily on the deception of an enemy. Fighting on a battlefield is the most primitive way of making war. There is no art higher than to destroy your enemy without a fight—by subverting anything of value in the enemy’s country.”

Please watch this video excerpt where ex-KGB propagandist and defector Yuri Bezmenov (a.k.a. Tomas Schuman) is being interviewed by Edward Griffin of the John Birch Society:


(The full interview, in much better quality, can be viewed here: Yuri Bezmenov: Deception Was My Job. )

During the interview, Mr. Bezmenov explains the war being waged against America by the hard left today. Most of what is discussed is common knowledge to anyone who has studied the stages of communist revolution, Soviet history, Marxism, and brainwashing, but naturally that sort of stuff is not taught in the public schools or at the universities.

The grand strategy is called “ideological subversion”. Other common names for it are psychological warfare, ideological warfare, propaganda warfare, etc. The KGB called it “active measures”. Ideological subversion is a very slow process that takes decades to complete. There are four stages in all:

Stage 1: Demoralization. This stage takes 15-30 years. By 1970 the Soviets had completely infiltrated the United States by brainwashing left-leaning people in the news media, the entertainment industry, politics, business, education, and religion. These people were called “useful idiots” by the former Soviets. According to Mr. Bezmenov, the Demoralization process was complete by 1985.

Stage 2: Destabilization.This stage is also complete. This is where the “demoralized” sheeple actually destabilize their own nation by believing all sorts of crazy things that are counter to logic and common sense. Like, believing that turning off ones light bulbs will keep icebergs from melting, or that illegal immigration is actually legal,  or that promiscuity and homosexuality are healthy, natural, and normal, or that radiation exposure from three nuclear melt-downs is not much worse then eating a banana, or that the way to get out of a debt crisis is to spend more money, etc.

Stage 3: “Crisis”. Ultimately, the destabilization in society gets so bad and the culture so divided that a “crisis” takes place.  As Obama’s former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has publicly said:

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.

That statement comes right out of the hard-left ideological subversion playbook. Make no mistake, we are currently in the “Crisis” stage which won’t last much longer. The OWS mob was just the latest attempt, with the full backing of the federal government, to create more “crisis” in the hopes of finally setting the last and final stage into motion.

Stage 4: Normalization. Once things get so “bonkers and out of control” the government (either foreign and/or domestic – it really doesn’t matter) will gleefully step in to “save us all from ourselves” with a heavy authoritarian boot to bring back law and order. Kiss your freedoms goodbye. “Normalization” will be anything BUT normal.

It is time for American Christians to wake up “before” we are sent to the gulags for reeducation. The hard-left hates true Bible believing Christians with a passion, because we are the only ones who dare to stand up to them and speak the Truth. We still have discernment and common sense. In their minds, we must be either marginalized, silenced, or worse, so they can ultimately achieve complete unrestricted power. Power and control is what it is all about. Just remember that Satan is our “real” advisory. So put on the full armor of the Lord every day:

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:10-13

Have a blessed day!
