The Soviet Art of Brain Washing / A Synthesis of the Russian textbook
on Psychopolitics

[The other part is appended.]

    A synthesis of the Russian
    Textbook on Psychopolitics

    PSYCHOPOLITICS - the art and
    science of asserting and maintain-
    ing dominion over the thoughts and
    loyalties of individuals, officers,
    bureaus, and masses, and the ef-
    fecting of the conquest of enemy
    nations through "mental healing."

                                EDITORIAL NOTE

    From May 2, 1936, to October 10, 1939, I was a dues-paying member of
    the Communist Party, operating under my own name, Kenneth Goff, and
    also the alias John Keats. In 1939, I voluntarily appeared before the
    Un-American Activities Committee in Washington, D.C., which was
    chairmanned at that time by Martin Dies, and my testimony can be found
    in Volume 9 of that year's Congressional Report.

    During the period that I was a member of the Communist Party, I
    attended their school which was located at 113 E. Wells St.,
    Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and operated under the name Eugene Debs Labor
    School. Here we were trained in all phases of warfare, both
    psychological and physical, for the destruction of the Capitalistic
    society and Christian civilization. In one portion of our studies we
    went thoroughly into the matter of psychopolitics. This was the art of
    capturing the minds of a nation through brainwashing and fake mental
    health -- the subjecting of whole nations of people to the rule of the
    Kremlin by capturing their minds. We were taught that the degradation
    of the populace is less inhuman than their destruction by bombs, for
    to an animal lives only once, any life is sweeter than death. The end
    of a war is the control of a conquered people. If a people can be
    conquered in the absence of war, the end of war will have been
    achieved without the destructions of war.

    During the past few years, I have noted with horror the increase of
    psychopolitical warfare upon the American public. First, in the
    brainwashing of our boys in Korea, and then in the well financed drive
    of mental health propaganda by left-wing pressure groups, wherein many
    of our states have passed Bills which can well be used by the enemies
    of America to subject to torture and imprisonment, those who preach
    the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and who oppose the
    menace of Communism. A clear example of this can be seen in the
    Lucille Miller case. In this warfare the Communists have definitely
    stated: "You must recruit every agency of the nation marked for
    slaughter into a foaming hatred of religious healing."

    Another example of the warfare that is being waged can be seen in the
    attempt to establish a mental Siberia in Alaska, which wa called for
    in the Alaskan Mental Health Bill. A careful study of this Bill will
    make you see at once that the land set aside under the allotment could
    not be for that small territory, and the Bill within itself
    establishes such authority that it could be turned into a prison camp
    under the guise of mental health for everyone who raises their voice
    against Communism and the hidden government operating in our own

    This book was used in underground schools, and contains the address of
    Beria to the American students in the Lenin University prior to 1936.
    The text in the book in general is from the Communist Manual of
    Instructions of Psychopolitical Warfare, and was used in America for
    the training of Communist cadre. The only revision in this book is the
    summary, which was added by the Communists after the atomic bomb came
    into being. In its contents you can see the diabolical plot of the
    enemies of Christ and America, as they seek to conquer our nation by
    subjecting the minds of our people to their will by various sinister

    This manual of the Communist Party should be in the hands of every
    loyal American, that they may be alerted to the fact that it is not
    always by armies and guns that a nation is conquered.

    American students at the Lenin University, I welcome your attendance
    at these classes on Psychopolitics.

    Psychopolitics is an important if less known division of Geo-politics.
    It is less known because it must necessarily deal with highly educated
    personnel, the very top strata of "mental healing."

    By psychopolitics our chief goals are effectively carried forward. To
    produce a maximum of chaos in the culture of the enemy is our first
    most important step. Our fruits are grown in chaos, distrust, economic
    depression and scientific turmoil. At least a weary populace can seek
    peace only in our offered Communist State, at last only Communism can
    resolve the problems of the masses.

    A psychopolitician must work hard to produce the maximum chaos in the
    fields of "mental healing." He must recruit and use all the agencies
    and facilities of "mental healing." He must labor to increase the
    personnel and facilities of "mental healing" until at last the entire
    field of mental science is entirely dominated by Communist principles
    and desires.

    To achieve these goals the psychopolitician must crush every
    "home-grown" variety of mental healing in America. Actual teachings of
    James, Eddy and Pentecostal Bible faith healers amongst your
    mis-guided people must be swept aside. They must be discredited,
    defamed, arrested, stamped upon even by their own government until
    there is no credit in them and only Communist-oriented "healing"
    remains. You must work until every teacher of psychology unknowingly
    or knowingly teaches only Communist doctrine under the guise of
    "psychology.". You must labor until every doctor and psychiatrist is
    either a psycho-politician or an unwitting assistant to our aims.

    You must labor until we have dominion over the minds and bodies of
    every important person in your nation. You must achieve such disrepute
    for the state of insanity and such authority over its pronouncement
    that not one statement so labeled could again be given credence by his
    people. you must work until suicide arising from mental imbalance is
    common and calls forth no general investigation or remark.

    With the institutions for the insane you have in your country prisons
    which can hold a million persons and can hold them without civil
    rights or any hope of freedom. And upon these people can be practiced
    shock and surgery so that never again will they draw a sane breath.
    You must make these treatments common and accepted. And you must sweep
    aside any treatment or any group of persons seeking to treat by
    effective means.

    You must dominate as respected men the fields of psychiatry and
    psychology. You must dominate the hospitals and universities. You must
    carry forward the myth that only a European doctor is competent in the
    field of insanity and thus excuse amongst you the high incidence of
    foreign birth and training. If and when we seize Vienna, you shall
    have then a common ground of meeting and can come and take your
    instructions as worshippers of Freud along with other psychiatrists.

    Psychopolitics is a solemn charge. With it you can erase our enemies
    as insects. You can cripple the efficiency of leaders by striking
    insanity into their families through the use of drugs. You can wipe
    them away with testimony as to their insanity. By our technologies,
    you can even bring about insanity itself when they seem to resistive.

    You can change their loyalties by psychopolitics. Given a short time
    with a psychopolitician you can alter forever their loyalty of a
    soldier in our hands or a statesman or a leader in his own country, or
    you can destroy his mind.

    However, you labor under certain dangers. It may happen that remedies
    for our "treatments" may be discovered. It may occur that a public hue
    and cry may arise against "mental healing." It may thus occur that all
    mental healing might be placed in the hands of ministers and taken out
    of the hands of our psychologists and psychiatrists. But the
    Capitalistic thirst for control, Capitalistic in-humanity and general
    public terror of insanity can be brought to guard against these
    things. But should they occur, should independent researchers actually
    discover means to undo psychopolitical procedures, you must not rest,
    you must not eat or sleep, you must not stint one tiniest bit of
    available money to campaign against it, dis-credit it , strike it down
    and render it void. For by an effective means all our actions and
    researches could be undone.

    In a Capitalistic state you are aided on all sides by the corruption
    of the philosophy of man and the times. You will discover that
    everything will aid you in your campaign to seize, control and use all
    "mental healing" to spread our doctrine and rid us of our enemies
    within their own borders.

    Use the courts, use the judges, use the Constitution of the country,
    use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends. Do not
    stint in your labor in this direction. And when you have succeeded you
    will discover that you can now effect your own legislation at will and
    you can, by careful organization of healing societies, by constant
    campaign about the terrors of society, by pretense as to your
    effectiveness make you Capitalist himself, by his own appropriations,
    finance a large portion of the quiet Communist conquest of the nation.

    By psychopolitics create chaos. Leave a nation leaderless. Kill our
    enemies. And bring to Earth, through Communism, the greatest peace Man
    has ever known.

    Thank You

                                  CHAPTER I
                        THE HISTORY AND DEFINITION OF

    Although punishment for its own sake may not be entirely without
    recompense, it is, nevertheless, true that the end and goal of all
    punishment is the indoctrination of the person being punished with an
    idea, whether that idea be one of restraint or obedience.

    In that any ruler has, from time beyond memory, needed the obedience
    of his subject in order to accomplish his ends, he has thus resorted
    to punishment. This is true of every tribe and state in the history of
    Man. Today, Russian culture has evolved more certain and definite
    methods of aligning and securing the loyalties of persons and
    populace, and of enforcing obedience upon them. This modern outgrowth
    of old practice is called Psychopolitics.

    The stupidity and narrowness of nations not blessed with Russian
    reasoning has caused them to rely upon practices which are, today, too
    ancient and out-moded for the rapid and heroic pace of our time. And
    in view of the tremendous advance of Russian Culture in the field of
    mental technologies, begun with the glorious work of Pavlov and
    carried forward so ably by later Russians, it would be strange that an
    art and science would not evolve totally devoted to the aligning of
    loyalties and extracting the obedience of individuals and multitudes.

    Thus we see that psychopolitical procedures are a natural outgrowth of
    practices as old as Man, practices which are current in every group of
    men throughout the world. Thus, in psychopolitical procedures there is
    no ethical problem, since it is obvious and evident that Man is always
    coerced against his will to the greater good of the State, whether by
    economic gains or indoctrination into the wishes and desires of the

    Basically, Man is an animal. He is an animal which has been given a
    civilized veneer. Man is a collective animal, grouped together for his
    own protection before the threat of the environment. Those who so
    group and control him must have in their possession specialized
    techniques to direct the vagaries and energies of the animal Man
    toward greater efficiency in the accomplishment of the goals of the

    Psychopolitics, in one form or another, have long been used in Russia,
    but the subject is all but unknown outside the borders of our nation,
    save only where we have carefully transplanted our information and
    where it is used for the greater good of the nation.

    The definition of Psychopolitics follows.

    Psychopolitics is the art and science of asserting and maintaining
    dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of the individuals, officers,
    bureaus, and masses, and the effecting of the conquest of the enemy
    nations through "mental healing."

    The subject of Psychopolitics breaks down into several categories,
    each a natural and logical proceeding from the last. Its first subject
    is the constitution and anatomy of Man, himself, as a political
    organism. The next is an examination of Man as an economic organism,
    as this might be controlled by his desires. The next is classification
    of State goals for the individual and masses. The next is an
    examination of loyalties. The next is the general subject of
    obedience. The next is the anatomy of the stimulus-response mechanisms
    of Man. The next is he subjects of shock and endurance. The next is
    categories of experience. The next is the catalyzing and aligning of
    experience. The next is the use of drugs. The next is the use of
    implantation. The next is the general application of Psychopolitics
    within Russia. The next is the organizations outside Russia, their
    composition and activity. The next is the creation of slave philosophy
    in a hostile nation. The next is countering anti-psychopolitical
    activities abroad, and the final one, the destiny of psychopolitical
    rule in a scientific age. To this might be added many sub categories,
    such as the nullification of modern weapons by psychopolitical

    The strength and power of Psychopolitics cannot be overestimated,
    particularly when used in a nation decayed by pseudo-intellectualism,
    where exploitation of the masses combines readily with psychopolitical
    actions, and particularly where the greed of Capitalistic or
    Monarchial regimes has already brought about an overwhelming incidence
    of neurosis which can be employed as the groundwork for
    psychopolitical action and psychopolitical corps.

    It is part of your mission, student, to prevent psychopolitical
    activity to the detriment of the Russian State, just as it is your
    mission to carry forward in our nation and outside it, if you are so
    assigned, the missions and goals of Psychopolitics. No agent of
    Russian could be even remotely effective without a thorough grounding
    in Psychopolitics, and so you carry forward with you a Russian trust
    to use well what you are learning here.

                                  CHAPTER II
                         THE CONSTITUTION OF MAN AS A
                              POLITICAL ORGANISM

    Man is already a colonial aggregation of cells, and to consider him an
    individual would be an error. Colonies of cells have gathered together
    as one organ or another of the body, and then these organs have,
    themselves, gathered together to form the whole. Thus we see that man,
    himself, is already a political organism, even if we do not consider a
    mass of men.

    Sickness could be considered to be a disloyalty to the remaining
    organisms on the part of one organism. This disloyalty, becoming
    apparent, brings about a revolt of some part of the anatomy against
    the remaining whole, and thus we have, in effect, an internal
    revolution. The heart, becoming disaffected, falls away from close
    membership and service to the remainder of the organism, and we
    discover the entire body in all of its activities is disrupted because
    of the revolutionary activity of the heart. The heart is in revolt
    because it cannot or will not co-operate with the remainder of the
    body. If we permit the heart thus to revolt, the kidneys, taking the
    example of the heart, may in their turn rebel and cease to work for
    the good of the organism. This rebellion, multiplying to the other
    organs and the glandular system, brings about the death of the
    "individual." We can see with easy that the revolt is death, that the
    revolt of any part of the organism results in death. Thus we see that
    there can be no compromise with rebellion.

    Like the "individual" man, the State is a collection of aggregations.
    The political entities within the State must, all of them, co-operate
    for the greater good of the State lest the State itself fall asunder
    and die, for with the disaffection of any single distrust we discover
    and example set for other districts, and we discover, at length, the
    entire State falling. This is the danger of revolution.

    Look at Earth. We see here one entire organism. The organism of Earth
    is an individual organism. Earth has as its organs the various races
    and nations of men. Where one of these is permitted to remain
    disaffected, Earth itself is threatened with death. The threatened
    rebellion of one country, no matter now small, against the total
    organism of Earth, would find Earth sick, and the cultural state of
    man to suffer in consequence . Thus, the putrescent illness of
    Capitalist States, spreading their puss and bacteria into the healthy
    countries of the world would not do otherwise than bring about the
    death of Earth, unless these ill organisms are brought into loyalty
    and obedience and made to function for the greater good of the
    world-wide State.

    The constitution of Man is so composed that the individual cannot
    function efficiently without the alignment of each and every part and
    organ of his anatomy. As the average individual is incapable, in an
    unformed and uncultured state, as witness the barbarians of the
    jungle, so must he be trained into a co-ordination of his organic
    functions by exercise, education, and work toward specific goals. We
    particularly and specifically note that the individual must be
    directed from without to accomplish his exercise, education, and work.
    He must be made to realize this, for only then can he be made to
    function efficiently in the role assigned to him.

    The tenets of rugged individualism, personal determinism, self-will,
    imagination, and personal creativeness are alike in the masses
    antipathetic to the good of the Greater State. These willful and
    unaligned forces are no more than illnesses which will bring about the
    disaffection, disunity, and at length the collapse of the group to
    which the individual is attached.

    The constitution of Man lends itself easily and thoroughly to certain
    and positive regulation from without of all of its functions,
    including those of thinking, obedience, and loyalty, and these things
    must be controlled if a greater State is to ensue.

    While it may seem desirable to the surgeon to amputate one or another
    limb or organ in order to save the remainder, it must be pointed out
    that this expediency is not entirely possible of accomplishment where
    one considers entire nations. A body deprived of organs can be
    observed to be lessened by its effectiveness. The world deprived of
    the workers now enslaved by the insane and nonsensical idiocies of the
    Capitalists and Monarchs of Earth, would, if removed, create a certain
    disability in the world-wide State. Just as we see the victor forced
    to rehabilitate the population of a conquered country at the end of a
    war, thus any effort to depopulate a disaffected portion of the world
    might have some consequence. However, let us consider the inroad of
    virus and bacteria hostile to the organism, and we see that unless we
    can conquer the germ, the organ or organism which it is attacking
    will, itself, suffer.

    In any State we have certain individuals who operate in the role of
    the virus and germ, and these, attacking the population or any group
    within the population, produce, by their self-willed greed, a sickness
    in the organ, which then generally spreads to the whole.

    The constitution of Man as an individual body, or the constitution of
    a State or a portion of the State as a political organism are
    analogous. It is the mission of Psychopolitics first to align the
    obedience and goals of the group, and then maintain their alignment by
    the eradication of the effectiveness of the persons and personalities
    which might swerve the group towards disaffection. In our own nation,
    where things are better managed and where reason reigns above all
    else, it is not difficult to eradicate the self-willed bacteria which
    might attack one of our political entities. But in the field of
    conquest, in nations less enlightened, where the Russian State does
    not yet have power, it is not as feasible to remove the entire
    self-willed individual. Psychopolitics makes it possible to remove
    that art of his personality which, in itself, is making havoc with the
    person's own constitution as well as the group with which the person
    is connected.

    If the animal man were permitted to continue undisturbed by
    counter-revolutionary propaganda, if he were left to work under the
    well-planned management of the State, we would discover little
    sickness amongst Man, and we would discover no sickness in the State.
    But where the individual is troubled by conflicting propaganda, where
    he is made the effect of revolutionary activities, where he is
    permitted to think thoughts critical of the State itself, where he is
    permitted to question of those in whose natural charge he falls, we
    would discover his constitution to suffer. We would discover, from
    this disaffection, the additional disaffection of his heart and of
    other portions of his anatomy;. So certain is this principle that when
    one finds a sick individual, could one search deeply enough, he would
    discover a mis-aligned loyalty and an interrupted obedience to that
    person's group unit.

    There are those who foolishly have embarked upon some spiritual
    Alice-in-Wonderland voyage into what they call the "subconscious" or
    the "unconscious" mind, and who, under the guise of "psychotherapy"
    would seek to make well the disaffection of body organs, but it is to
    be noted that their results are singularly lacking in success. There
    is no strength in such an approach. When hypnotism was first invented
    in Russia, it was observed that all that was necessary was to command
    the unresisting individual to be well in order, many times, to
    accomplish that fact. The limitation of hypnotism was that many
    subjects were not susceptible to its uses, and thus hypnotism has had
    to be improved upon in order to increase the suggestibility of
    individuals who would not otherwise be reached. Thus, any nation has
    had the experience of growing well again, as a whole organism, when
    placing sufficient force in play against a disaffected group. Just as
    in hypnotism any organ can be commanded into greater loyalty and
    obedience, so can any political group be commanded into greater
    loyalty and obedience should sufficient force be employed. However,
    force often brings about destruction and it is occasionally not
    feasible to use broad mass force t o accomplish the ends in view.
    Thus, it is necessary to align the individual against his desire not
    to conform.

    Just as it is a recognized truth that Man must conform to his
    environment, so it is a recognized truth, and will become more so as
    the years proceed, that even the body of Man can be commanded into

    The constitution of Man renders itself peculiarly adapted to
    re-alignment of loyalties. Where these loyalties are indigestible to
    the constitution of the individual itself, such as loyalties to the
    'petit bourgeoisie,' the Capitalist, to anti-Russian ideas, we find
    the individual body peculiarly susceptible to sickness, and thus we
    can clearly understand the epidemics, illnesses, mass-neuroses,
    tumults and confusions of the United States and other capitalist
    countries. Here we find the worker improperly and incorrectly loyal,
    and thus we find the worker ill. To save him and establish him
    correctly and properly upon his goal toward a greater State, it is an
    overpowering necessity to make it possible for him to grant his
    loyalties in a correct direction. In that his loyalties are swerved
    and his obedience cravenly demanded by persons antipathetic to his
    general good, and in that these persons are few, even in a Capitalist
    nation, the goal and direction of Psychopolitics is clearly
    understood. To benefit the worker in such a plight, it is necessary to
    eradicate, by general propaganda, by other means, and by his own
    co-operation, and self-willedness of perverted leaders. It is
    necessary, as well, to indoctrinate the educated strata into the
    tenets and principles of co-operation with the environment, and thus
    to insure the worker less warped leadership, less craven doctrine, and
    more co-operation with the ideas and ideals of the Communist State.

    The technologies of Psychopolitics are directed to this end.

                                 CHAPTER III
                         MAN AS AN ECONOMIC ORGANISM

    Man is subject to certain desires and needs which are as natural to
    his being as they are to that of any other animal. Man, however, has
    the peculiarity of exaggerating some of these beyond the bounds of
    reason. This is obvious through the growth of leisure classes,
    pseudo-intellectual groups, the "petit bourgeoisie," Capitalism, and
    ott her ills.

    It has been said, with truth, that one tenth of a man's life is
    concerned with politics and nine-tenths with economics. Without food,
    the individual dies. Without clothing, he freezes. Without houses and
    weapons, he is prey to the starving wolves. The acquisition of
    sufficient items to answer these necessities of food, clothing and
    shelter, in reason, is the natural right of a member of an enlightened
    State. An excess of such items brings about unrest and disquiet. The
    presence of luxury items and materials, and the artificial creation
    and whetting of appetites, as in Capitalist advertising, are certain
    to accentuate the less-desirable characteristics of Man.

    The individual is an economic organism, in that he requires a certain
    amount of food, a certain amount of water, and must hold within
    himself a certain amount of heat in order to live. When he has more
    food than he can eat, more clothing than he needs to protect him, he
    then enters upon a certain idleness which dulls his wits and
    awareness, and makes him prey to difficulties which, in a less toxic
    state, he would have foreseen and avoided. Thus, we have a glut of
    being a menace to the individual.

    It is no less different in a group. Where the group acquires too much,
    its awareness of its own fellows and of the environment is accordingly
    reduced, and the effectiveness the group in general is lost.

    The maintaining of a balance between gluttony and need is the province
    of Economics proper, and is the fit subject and concern of the
    Communist State.

    Desire and want are a state of mind. Individuals can be educated into
    desiring and wanting more than they can ever possibly obtain, and such
    individuals are unhappy. Most of the self-willed characteristics of
    the Capitalists come entirely from greed. He exploits the worker far
    beyond any necessity on his own part, as a Capitalist, to need.

    In a nation where economic balances are not controlled, the appetite
    of the individual is unduly whetted by enchanting and fanciful
    persuasions to desire, and a type of insanity ensues, where each
    individual is persuaded to possess more than he can use, and to
    possess it even at the expense of his fellows.

    There is, in economic balances, the other side. Too great and too long
    privation can bring about unhealthy desires, which, in themselves,
    accumulate in left action, more than the individual can use. Poverty,
    itself, as carefully cultivated in Capitalist States, can bring about
    an imbalance of acquisition. Just as a vacuum will pull into it
    masses, in a country where enforced privation upon the masses is
    permitted, and where desire is artificially whetted, need turns to
    greed, and one easily discovers in such states exploitation of the
    many for the benefit of the few.

    If one, by the technologies of Psychopolitics, were to dull the
    excessive greed in the few who possess it, the worker would be freed
    to seek a more natural balance.

    Here we have two extremes. Either one of them are an insanity. If we
    wish to create an insanity we need only glut or deprive an individual
    at long length beyond the ability to withstand and we have a mental
    imbalance. A simple example of this is the alternation of too low with
    too high pressures in a chamber, an excellent psychopolitical
    procedure. The rapidly varied pressure brings about a chaos wherein
    the individual will cannot act and where other wills then, perforce,
    assume control.

    Essentially, in an entire country, one must remove the greedy by
    whatever means and must then create and continue a semi-privation in
    the masses in order to command and utterly control the nation.

    A continuous hope for prosperity must be indoctrinated into the masses
    with many dreams and visions of glut of commodity and this hope must
    be counter-played against the actuality of privation and the
    continuous threat of loss of all economic factors in case of
    disloyalty to the State in order to suppress the individual wills of
    the masses.

    In a nation under conquest, such as America, our slow and stealthy
    approach need take advantage only of the cycles of booms and
    depressions inherent in Capitalistic nations in order to assert of
    more and more strong control over individual wills. A boom is as
    advantageous as a depression for our ends, for during prosperity our
    propaganda lines must only continue to point up the wealth the period
    is delivering to the selected few to divorce their control of the
    State. During a depression one must only point out that it ensued as a
    result of the avarice of a few and the general political incompetence
    of the national leaders.

    The handling of economic propaganda is not properly the sphere of
    psychopolitics but the psychopolitician must understand the economic
    measures and Communist goals connected with them.

    The masses must at last come to believe that only excessive taxation
    of the rich can deliver them of the "burdensome leisure class" and can
    thus be brought to accept such a thing as income tax, a Marxist
    principle smoothly slid into Capitalistic framework in 1909-1913 in
    the United States. This, even though the basic law of the United
    States forbade it and even though Communism at that time had been
    active only a few years in America. Such success as the Income Tax
    law, had it been followed thoroughly could have brought the United
    States and not Russia into the world scene as the first Communist
    nation. But the virility and good sense of the Russian peoples won. It
    may not be that the United States will become entirely Communist until
    past the middle of the century, but when it does it will be because of
    our superior understanding of economics and of psychopolitics.

    The Communist agent skilled in economics has as his task the suborning
    of tax agencies and their personnel to create the maximum disturbances
    and chaos and the passing of laws adapted to our purposes and to him
    we must leave this task. The psychopolitical operator plays a
    distinctly different role in this drama.

    The rich, the skilled in finance,the well informed in government are
    particular and individual targets for the psychopolitician. His is the
    role of taking off the board those individuals who would halt or
    corrupt Communist economic programs. Thus every rich man, every
    statesman, ever person well informed and capable in government, must
    have brought to his side as a trusted confidant, a psychopolitical

    The families of these persons are often deranged from idleness and
    glut and this fact must be played upon, even created. The normal
    health and wildness of a rich man's son must be twisted and perverted
    and explained into neurosis and then, assisted by a timely
    administration of drugs or violence, turned into criminality or
    insanity. This brings at once someone in "mental healing" into
    confidential contact with the family and from this point on the very
    most must then be made of that contact.

    Communism could best succeed if at the side of every rich or
    influential man there could be placed a psychopolitical operator, an
    undoubted authority in the field of "mental healing" who could then by
    his advice or through the medium of a wife or daughter by his guided
    options direct the optimum policy to embroil or upset the economic
    policies of the country and, when the time comes to do away forever
    with the rich or influential man, to administer the proper drug or
    treatment to bring about his complete demise in an institution as a
    patient or dead, as a suicide.

    Planted beside a country's powerful persons the psychopolitical
    operator can also guide other policies to the betterment of our

    The Capitalist does not know the definition of war. He things of war
    as attack with force performed by soldiers and machines. He does not
    know that a more effective if somewhat longer w ar can be fought with
    bread or, in our case, with drugs and the wisdom of our art. The
    Capitalist has never won a war in truth. The psychopolitician is
    having little trouble winning this one.

                                  CHAPTER IV

    Just as we would discover an individual to be ill, whose organs, each
    one, had a different goal from the rest, so we discover the
    individuals and the State to be ill where goals are not rigorously
    codified and enforced.

    There are those who, in less enlightened times, gave Man to believe
    that goals should be personally sought and held, and that, indeed,
    Man's entire impulse toward higher things stemmed from Freedom. We
    must remember that the same peoples who embraced this philosophy also
    continued in Man the myth of spiritual existence.

    All goals proceed from duress. Life is a continuous escape. Without
    force and threat, there can be no striving. Without pain, there can be
    no desire to escape from pain. Without the threat of punishment, there
    can be no gain. Without duress and command, there can be no alignment
    of bodily functions. Without rigorous and forthright control, there ca
    be no accomplished goals for the State.

    Goals of the State should be formulated by the State for the obedience
    and concurrence of the individuals within that State. A State without
    goals so formulated is a sick State. A State without the power and
    forthright wish to enforce its goals is a sick State.

    When an order is issued by the Communist State, and is not obeyed, a
    sickness will be discovered to ensue. Where obedience fails, the
    masses suffer.

    State goals depend upon loyalty and obedience for their
    accomplishment. When one discovers a State goal to be interpreted, one
    discovers inevitably that there has been an interposition of
    self-willedness, of greed, of idleness, or of rugged individualism and
    self-centered initiative.The interruption of a State goal will be
    discovered as having been interrupted by a person whose disloyalty and
    disobedience is the direct result of his own mis-alignment with life.

    It is not always necessary to remove the individual. It is possible to
    remove his self-willed tendencies to the improvement of the goals and
    gains of the whole. The technologies of Psychopolitics are graduated
    upon the scale which starts somewhat above the removal of the
    individual himself, upward toward the removal only of those tendencies
    which bring about his lack of co-operation.

    It is not enough for the State to have goals. These goals, once put
    forward, depend upon their completion, upon the loyalty and obedience
    of the workers. These, engaged for the most part, in hard labors, have
    little time for idle speculation, which is good. But, above them,
    unfortunately, there must be foremen of one or another position, and
    one of whom might have sufficient idleness and lack of physical
    occupation to cause some disaffecting independency in his conduct and

    Psychopolitics remedies this tendency toward disaffection when it
    exceeds the common persuasions of the immediate superiors of the
    person in question.

                                  CHAPTER V
                         AN EXAMINATION OF LOYALTIES

    If loyalty is so important in the economic and social structure, it is
    necessary to examine it further as itself.

    In the field of Psychopolitics, loyalty means simply 'alignment.' It
    means, more fully, alignment with the goals of the Communist State.
    Disloyalty means entirely mis-alignment, and more broadly,
    mis-alignment with the goals of the Communist State.

    When we consider that the goals of the Communist State are to the best
    possible benefit of the masses, we can see that disloyalty, as a term,
    can embrace Democratic alignment. Loyalty to persons not
    communistically indoctrinated would be quite plainly a mis-alignment.

    The cure of disloyalty is entirely contained in the principles of
    alignment. All that is necessary to do, where disloyalty is
    encountered, is to align the purposes of the individual toward the
    goals of Communism, and it will be discovered that a great many
    circumstances hitherto distasteful in his existence will cease to

    A heart, or a kidney in rebellion against the remainder of the
    organism is being disloyal to the remainder of the organism. To cure
    the heart or kidney it is actually only necessary to bring its
    activities into alignment with the remainder of the body.

    The technologies of Psychopolitics adequately demonstrate the
    workability of this. Mild shock of the electric variety can, and does,
    produce the re-cooperation of a rebellious body organ. It is the shock
    and punishment of surgery which, in the main, accomplishes the
    re-alignment of a disaffected portion of the body, rather than the
    surgery itself. It is the bombardment of X-Rays, rather than the
    therapeutic value of X-Rays which causes some disaffected organ to
    once again turn its attention to the support of the general organism.

    While it is not borne out that electric shock has any therapeutic
    value, so far as making the individual more sane, it is adequately
    brought out that its punishment value will create in the patient a
    greater co-operative attitude. Brain surgery has no statistical data
    to recommend it beyond its removal of the individual personality from
    amongst the paths of organs which were not permitted to co-operate.
    These two Russian developments have never pretended to alter the state
    of sanity. They are only effective and workable in introducing an
    adequate punishment mechanism to the personality to make it cease and
    desist from its courses and egotistical direction of the anatomy
    itself. It is the violence of the electric shock and the surgery which
    is useful in subduing the recalcitrant personality, which is all that
    stands in the road of the masses or the State. It is occasionally to
    be discovered that the removal of the preventing personality by shock
    and surgery then permits the regrowth and re-establishment of organs
    which have been rebelled against by that personality. In what a
    well-regulated state is composed of organisms, not personalities, the
    use of electric shock and brain surgery in Psychopolitics is clearly

    The changing of loyalty consists, in its primary step, of the
    eradication of existing loyalties. This can be done in one of two
    ways. First, by demonstrating that previously existing loyalties have
    brought about perilous physical circumstances, such as imprisonment,
    lack of recognition, duress, or privation, and second by eradicating
    the personality itself.

    The first is accomplished by a steady and continuous indoctrination of
    the individual in the belief that his previous loyalties have been
    granted to an unworthy source. One of the primary instances in this is
    creating circumstances which apparently derive from the target of his
    loyalties, so as to rebuff the individual. As part of this there is
    the creation of a state of mind in the individual, by actually placing
    him under duress, and then furnishing him with false evidence to
    demonstrate that the target of his previous loyalties is, itself, the
    course of the duress. Another portion of this same method consists of
    defaming or degrading the individual whose loyalties are to be changed
    to the target of his loyalties, i.e., superiors or government, to such
    a degree that this target, at length, actually does hold the
    individual in disrepute, and so does rebuff him and serve to convince
    him that his loyalties have been misplaced. These are the milder
    methods, but have proven extremely effective. The greatest drawback in
    their practice is that they require time and concentration, the
    manufacture of false evidence, and a psychopolitical operator's time.

    In moments of expediency, of which there are many, the personality
    itself can be rearranged by shock, surgery, duress, privation, and in
    particular, that best of psychopolitical techniques, implantation,
    with the technologies of neo-hypnotism. Such duress must have in its
    first part a defamation of the loyalties, and in its second, the
    implantation of new loyalties. A good and experienced psychopolitical
    operator, working under the most favorable circumstances, can, by the
    use of psychopolitical technologies, alter the loyalties of an
    individual so deftly that his own companions will not suspect that
    they have changed. This, however, requires considerably more finesse
    than is usually necessary to the situation. Mass neo-hypnotism can
    accomplish more or less the same results when guided by an experienced
    psychopolitical operator. An end goal in such a procedure would be the
    alteration of the loyalties of an entire nation in a short period of
    time by mass neo-hypnotism, a thing which has been effectively
    accomplished among the less-usable states of Russia.

    It is adequately demonstrated that loyalty is entirely lacking in that
    mythical commodity known as 'spiritual quality.' Loyalty is entirely a
    thing of dependence, economic or mental, and can be changed by the
    crudest implementations. Observation of workers in their factories or
    fields demonstrates that they easily grant loyalty to a foreman or a
    woman, and then as easily abandon it and substitute another
    individual, revulsing, at the same time, toward the person to whom
    loyalty was primarily granted. The queasy insecurity of the masses in
    Capitalistic nations finds this more common than in an enlightened
    State, such as Russia. In Capitalistic states, dependencies are so
    craven, wants and privations are so exaggerated, that loyalty is
    entirely without ethical foundation and exists only in the realm of
    dependency, duress, or demand.

    It is fortunate that Communism so truly approaches an ideal state of
    mind, for this brings a certain easiness into any changing loyalties,
    since all other philosophies extant and practiced on Earth today are
    degraded and debased, compared to Communism. It is then with a certain
    security that a psychopolitical operator functions, for he knows that
    he can change the loyalty of an individual to a more ideal level by
    reason alone, and only expediency makes it necessary to employ the
    various shifts of psychopolitical technology. Any man who cannot be
    persuaded into Communist rationale is, of course, to be regarded as
    somewhat less than sane, and it is, therefore completely justified to
    use the techniques of insanity upon the non-Communist.

    In order to change loyalty it is necessary to establish first the
    existing loyalties of the individual. The task is made very simple in
    view of the fact that Capitalistic and Fascistic nations have no great
    security in the loyalty of their subjects. And it may be found that
    the loyalties of the subjects, as we call any person against whom
    psychopolitical technology is to be exerted, are already too faint to
    require eradication. It is generally only necessary to persuade with
    the rationale and overwhelming reasonability of Communism to have the
    person grant his loyalty to the Russian State. However, regulated only
    by the importance of the subject, no great amount of time should be
    expended upon the individual, but emotional duress, or electric shock,
    or brain surgery should be resorted to, should Communist propaganda
    persuasion fail. In a case of a very important person, it may be
    necessary to utilize the more delicate technologies of Psychopolitics
    so as to place the per son himself, and his associates, in ignorance
    of the operation. In this case a simple implantation is used, with a
    maximum duress and command value. Only the most skilled
    psychopolitical operator should be employed on such a project, as in
    this case of the very important person, for a bungling might disclose
    the tampering with his mental processes. It is much more highly
    recommended, if there is any doubt whatever about the success of an
    operation against an important person, to select out as a
    psychopolitical target persons i his vicinity in whom he is
    emotionally involved. His wife or children normally furnish the best
    targets, and these can be operated against without restraint. In
    securing the loyalty of a very important person one must place at his
    side a constant pleader who enters a sexual or familial chord into the
    situation on the side of Communism. It may not be necessary to make a
    Communist out of the wife, or the children, or one of the children,
    but it might prove efficacious to do so. In most instances, however,
    this is not possible. By the use of various drugs, it is, in this
    modern age, and well within the realm of psychopolitical reality,
    entirely too easy to bring about a state of severe neurosis or
    insanity in the wife or children, and thus pass them, with full
    consent of the important person, and the government in which he
    exists, or the bureau in which he is operating, into the hands of a
    psychopolitical operator, who then in his own laboratory, without
    restraint or fear of investigation or censor, can, with electric
    shock, surgery, sexual attack, drugs, or other useful means, degrade
    or entirely alter the personality of a family member, and create in
    that person a psychopolitical slave subject who, then, on command or
    signal, will perform outrageous actions, thus discrediting the
    important person, or will demand, on a more delicate level, that
    certain measures be taken by the important person, which measures are,
    of course, dictated by the psychopolitical operator.

    Usually when the party has no real interest in the activities of
    decisions of the important person, but merely wishes to remove him
    from effective action, the attention of the psychopolitical operator
    need not to be so intense, and the person need only be passed into the
    hands of some unwitting mental practitioner, who taught as he is by
    psychopolitical operators, will bring about sufficient embarrassment.

    When the loyalty of an individual cannot be swerved, and where the
    opinion, weight, or effectiveness of the individual stands firmly in
    the road of Communist goals, it is usually best to occasion a mild
    neurosis in the person by any available means, and then, having
    carefully given him a history of mental imbalance, to see to it that
    he disposes of himself by suicide, or by bringing about his demise in
    such a way as to resemble suicide. Psychopolitical operators have
    handled such situations skillfully tens of thousands of times, within
    and without Russia.

    It is a firm principle of Psychopolitics that the person to be
    destroyed must be involved at first or second hand in the stigma of
    insanity, and must have been placed in contact with psychopolitical
    operators or persons trained by them, with a maximum amount of tumult
    and publicity. The stigma of insanity is properly placed at the door
    of such persons' reputations and is held there firmly by bringing
    about irrational acts, either on his own part or in his vicinity. Such
    an activity can be classified as a partial destruction of alignment,
    and if this destruction is carried forward to its furthest extent the
    mis-alignment on the subject of all loyalties can be considered to be
    complete, and alignment on new loyalties can be embarked upon safely.
    By bringing about insanity or suicide on the part of the wife of an
    important political personage, a sufficient mis-alignment has been
    instigated to change his attitude. And this, carried forward firmly,
    or assisted by psychopolitical implantation can begin the rebuilding
    of his loyalties, but now slanted in a more proper and fitting

    Another reason for the alignment of psychopolitical activities with
    the mis-alignment of insanity in that insanity, itself, is a despised
    and disgraced state, and anything connected with it is lightly viewed.
    Thus, a psychopolitical operator, working in the vicinity of an insane
    person, can refute and disprove any accusations made against him by
    demonstrating that the family itself is tainted with mental imbalance.
    This is surprisingly effective in Capitalistic countries where
    insanity is so thoroughly feared that no one would dream of
    investigating any circumstances in its vicinity. Psychopolitical
    propaganda works constantly and must work constantly to increase and
    build up this aura of mystery surrounding insanity, and must emphasize
    the horribleness of insanity in order to excuse non-therapeutic
    actions taken against the insane. Particularly in Capitalistic
    countries, an insane person has no rights under law. No person who is
    insane may hold property. No person who is insane may testify. Thus,
    we have an excellent road along which we can travel toward our certain
    goal and destiny.

    Entirely by bringing about public conviction that the sanity of a
    person is in question, it is possible to discount and eradicate all of
    the goals and activities of that person. By demonstrating the insanity
    of a group, or even a government, it is possible, then, to cause its
    people to disavow it. By magnifying the general human reaction to
    insanity, through keeping the subject of insanity, itself, forever
    before the public eye, and then, by utilizing this reaction by causing
    a revulsion on the part of a populace against its leaders or leaders,
    it is possible to stop any government or movement.

    It is important to know that the entire subject of loyalty is thus as
    easily handled as it is. One of the first and foremost missions of the
    psychopolitician is to make an attack upon Communism and insanity
    synonymous. It should become the definition of insanity, of the
    paranoid variety, that "A paranoid believes he is being attacked by
    Communists." Thus, at once the support of the individual so attacking
    Communism will fall away and wither.

    Instead of executing national leaders, suicide for them should be
    arranged under circumstances which question their demise. In this way
    we can select out all opposition to the Communist extension into the
    social orders of the world, and render populace who would oppose us
    leaderless, and bring about a state of chaos or mis-alignment into
    which we can thrust, with great simplicity, the clear and forceful
    doctrines of Communism.

    The cleverness of our attack in this field of Psychopolitics is
    adequate to avoid the understanding of the layman and the usual stupid
    official, and by operating entirely under the banner of authority,
    with the oft-repeated statement that the principles of psychotherapy
    are too devious for common understanding, an entire revolution can be
    effected without the suspicion of a populace until it is an
    accomplished fact.

    As insanity is the maximum mis-alignment, it can be grasped to be the
    maximum weapon in severance of loyalties to leaders and old social
    orders. Thus, it is of the utmost importance that psychopolitical
    operative infiltrate the healing arts of a nation marked for conquest,
    and bring that quarter continuous pressure against the population and
    the government until at last the conquest is affected. This is the
    subject and goal of Psychopolitics, itself.

    In rearranging loyalties we must have a command of their values. In
    the animal the first loyalty is to himself. This is destroyed by
    demonstrating errors to him, showing him that he does not remember,
    cannot act or does not trust himself. The second loyalty is to his
    family unit, his parents and brothers and sisters. This is destroyed
    by making a family unit economically non-dependent, by lessening the
    value of marriage, by making an easiness of divorce and by raising the
    children whenever possible by the State. The next loyalty is to his
    friends and local environment. This is destroyed by lowering his tru
    st and bringing about reportings upon him allegedly by his fellows or
    the town or village authorities. The next is to the State and this,
    for the purposes of Communism, is the only loyalty which should exist
    once the state is founded as a Communist State. To destroy loyalty to
    the State all manner of forbidding for youth must be put into effect
    so as to disenfranchise them as members of the Capitalist state and,
    by promises of a better lot under Communism, to gain their loyalty to
    a Communist movement.

    Denying a Capitalist country easy access to courts, bringing about and
    supporting propaganda to destroy the home, creating and continuous
    juvenile delinquentcy, forcing upon the state all manner of practices
    to divorce the child from it will in the end create chaos necessary to

    Under the saccharine guise of assistance to them, rigorous child labor
    laws are the best means to deny the child any right in society. By
    refusing to let him earn, by forcing him into unwanted dependence upon
    a grudging parent, by making certain in other channels that the parent
    is never in other than economic stress, the child can be driven in his
    teens into revolt. Delinquency will ensue.

    By making readily available drugs of various kinds, by giving the
    teen-ager alcohol, by praising his wildness, by stimulating him with
    sex literature and advertising to him or her practices as taught at
    the Sexpol, the psychopolitical operator can create the necessary
    attitude of chaos, idleness and worthlessness into which can then be
    cast the solution which will give the teen ager complete freedom
    everywhere --Communism.

    Should it be possible to continue conscription beyond any reasonable
    time by promoting unpopular wars and other means, the draft can always
    stand as a further barrier to the progress of youth in life,
    destroying any immediate hope to participate in his nation's civil

    By these means the patriotism of youth for their Capitalistic flag can
    be dulled to a point where they are no longer dangerous as soldiers.
    While this might require many decades to effect, Capitalisms short
    term view will never envision the lengths across which we can plan.

    If we could effectively kill the national pride and patriotism of just
    one generation, we will have won that country. Therefore, there must
    be continual propaganda abroad to undermine the loyalty of the
    citizens in general and the teen-ager in particular.

    The role of the psychopolitical operator in this is very strong. He
    can, from his position as an authority on the mind, advise all manner
    of destructive measures. He can teach the lack of control of this
    child at home. He can instruct, in an optimum situation, the entire
    nation in how to handle children -- and instruct them so that the
    children, given no control, given no real home, can run wildly about
    with no responsibility for their nation or themselves.

    The mis-alignment of the loyalty of youth to a Capitalistic nation
    sets the proper stage for a realignment of their loyalties toward
    Communism. Creating a greed for drugs, sexual misbehavior and
    uncontrolled freedom and presenting this to them as a benefit of
    Communism, will with ease, bring about our alignment.

    In the case of strong leaders amongst youthful groups, a
    psychopolitical operator can work in many ways to use or discard that
    leadership. If it is to be used, the character of a girl or boy must
    be altered carefully into criminal channels and a control by
    blackmail, or other means, must be maintained. But where the
    leadership is not susceptible, where it resists all persuasions and
    might become dangerous to our Cause, no pains must be spared to direct
    the attention of the authorities to that person and to harass him in
    one way or another until he can come into the hands of the juvenile
    authorities. When this has been effected, it can be hoped that a
    psychopolitical operator, by reason of child advisor status, can, in
    the security of the jail and cloaked by processes of law, destroy the
    sanity of that person. Particularly brilliant scholars, athletes and
    youth group leaders must be handled in either one of these two ways.

    In the matter of guiding the activities of juvenile courts, the
    psychopolitical operator entertains here one of his easier tasks. A
    Capitalistic nation is so filled with injustice in general that a
    little more passes without comment. In juvenile courts there are
    always persons with strange appetites whether these be judges or
    police man or women. If such do not exist, they can be created. By
    making available to them young girls or boys in the "security" of the
    jail or the detention home and by appearing with flash cameras or
    witnesses one becomes equiped with a whip adequate to direct all the
    future decisions of that person when these are needed.

    The handling of youth cases by courts should be led further and
    further away from law and further and further into "mental problems"
    until the entire nation thinks of "mental problems" instead of
    criminals. This places vacancies everywhere in the courts, in the
    offices of district attorneys, or police staffs which could then be
    filled with psychopolitical operators and these become the judges of
    the land by their influence and into their hands comes the total
    control of the criminal, without whose help a revolution cannot ever
    be accomplished.

    By stressing this authority over the problems of youth and adults in
    courts one day the demand for psychopolitical operators could become
    such that even the armed services will use "authorities on the mind"
    to work their various justices and when this occurs, the armed forces
    of the nation then enter into our hands as solidly as if we commanded
    them ourselves. With the slight bonus of having thus a skilled
    interrogator near every technician or handler of secret war apparatus,
    the country, in even of revolution, as did Germany in 1918 and 1919
    will find itself immobilized by its own Army and Navy fully and
    entirely in Communist hands.

    Thus the subject of loyalties and their re-alignment is in fact the
    subject of non-armed conquest of an enemy.

    Textbook on Psychopolitics

                                  CHAPTER VI

    Obedience is the result of force.

    Everywhere we look in the history of the Earth we discover that
    obedience to new rulers has come about entirely through the
    demonstration on the part of those rulers of greater force than was to
    be discovered in the old ruler. A population overridden, conquered by
    war, is obedient to its conqueror. It is obedient to its conqueror
    because its conqueror has exhibited more force.

    Concurrent with force is brutality, for there are human considerations
    involved which also represent force. The most barbaric, unrestrained,
    brutal use of force, if carried far enough, invokes obedience. Savage
    force, sufficiently long displayed toward any individual, will bring
    about his concurrence with any principle or order.

    Force is the antithesis of humanizing actions. It is so synonymous in
    the human mind with savageness, lawlessness, brutality, and barbarism,
    that it is only necessary to display an inhuman attitude toward
    people, to be granted by those people the possession of force.

    Any organization which has the spirit and courage to display
    inhumanity, savageness, brutality, and an uncompromising lack of
    humanity, will be obeyed. Such a use of force is, itself, the
    essential ingredient of greatness. We have o hand no less an example
    to our great Communist Leaders, who, in moments of duress and trial,
    when faced by Czarist rule, continued over the heads of an enslaved
    populace, yet displayed sufficient courage never to stay their hands
    in the execution of the conversion of the Russian State to Communist

    If you would have obedience you must have no compromise with humanity.
    If you would have obedience you must make it clearly understood that
    you have no mercy. Man is an animal. He understands, in the final
    analysis, only those things which a brute understands.

    As an example of this, we find an individual refusing to obey and
    being struck. His refusal to obey is now less vociferous. He is struck
    again, and his resistance is lessened once more. He is hammered and
    pounded again and again, until, at length, his only thought is direct
    and implicit obedience to that person from whom the force has
    emanated. This is a proven principle. It is proven because it is the
    main principle of Man, the animal, has used since his earliest
    beginnings. It is the only principle which has been effective, the
    only principle which has brought about a wide and continued belief.
    For it is to our benefit that an individual who is struck again, and
    again, and again from a certain source, will, at length, hypnotically
    believe anything he is told by the source of the blows.

    The stupidity of Western civilizations is best demonstrated by the
    fact that they believe hypnotism is a thing of the mind, of attention,
    and a desire for unconsciousness. This is not true. Only when a person
    has been beaten, punished, and mercilessly hammered, can hypnotism
    upon him be guaranteed in its effectiveness. It is stated by Western
    authorities on hypnosis that only some twenty percent of the people
    are susceptible to hypnotism. This statement is very untrue. Given
    enough punishment, all of the people in any time and place are
    susceptible to hypnotism. In other words, by adding force, hypnotism
    is made uniformly effective. Where unconsciousness could not be
    induced by simple concentration upon the hypnotist, unconsciousness
    can be induced by drugs, by blows, by electric shock, and by other
    means. And where unconsciousness cannot be induced so as to make an
    implantation or an hypnotic command effective, it is only necessary to
    amputate the functioning portions of the animal man's brain to render
    him null and void and no longer a menace. Thus, we find that hypnotism
    is entirely effective.

    The mechanisms of hypnotism demonstrate clearly that people can be
    made to believe in certain conditions, and even in their environments
    or in politics, by the administration of force. Thus, it is necessary
    for a psychopolitician to be an expert in the administration of
    forces. Thus, he can bring about implicit obedience, not only on the
    part of individual members of the populace, but on the entire populace
    itself and its government. He need only take unto himself a
    sufficiently savage role, a sufficiently uncompromising inhuman
    attitude, and he will be obeyed and believed.

    The subject of hypnotism is a subject of belief. What can people be
    made to believe? They can be made to believe anything which is
    administered to them with sufficient brutality and force. The
    obedience of a populace is as good as they will believe.

    Despicable religions, such as Christianity, knew this. They knew that
    if enough faith could be brought into being a populace could be
    enslaved by the Christian mockeries of humanity and mercy, and thus
    could be disarmed. But one need not count upon this act of faith to
    bring about a broad belief. One must only exhibit enough force, enough
    inhumanity, enough brutality and savageness to create implicit belief
    and therefore and thereby implicit obedience. As Communism is a mater
    of belief, its study is a study of force.

    The earliest Russian psychiatrists, pioneering this science of
    psychiatry, understood thoroughly that hypnosis is induced by acute
    fear. They discovered it could also be induced by shock of an
    emotional nature, and also by extreme privation, as well as by blows
    and drugs.

    In order to induce a high state of hypnosis in an individual, a group,
    or a population, an element of terror must always be present on the
    part of those who would govern. The psychiatrist is aptly suited to
    this role, for his brutalities are committed in the name of science
    and are inexplicably complex, and entirely out of the view of the
    human understanding. A sufficient popular terror of the psychiatrist
    will, in itself, bring about insanity on the part of many individuals.
    A psychopolitical operative, then, can, entirely cloaked with
    authority, commence and continue a campaign of propaganda, describing
    various "treatments" which are administered to the insane. He can, in
    all of his literature and his books, list large numbers of pretended
    cures by these means. But these "cures" need not actually produce any
    recovery from a state of disturbance. As long as the psychopolitical
    operative or his dupes are the only authorities as to the difference
    between sanity and insanity, their word as to the therapeutic value of
    such treatment will be the final word. No layman would dare adventure
    to place judgement upon the state of sanity of an individual who the
    psychiatrist has already declared insane. The individual, himself, is
    unable to complain, and his family, as will be covered later, is
    already discredited by the occurrence of insanity in their midst.
    There must be no other adjudicators of insanity, otherwise it could be
    disclosed that the brutalities practiced in the name of treatment are
    not therapeutic.

    A psychopolitical operative has no interest in "therapeutic means" or
    "cures." The greater number of insane in the country where he is
    operating, the larger number of the populace will come under his view,
    and the greater will become his facilities. Because the problem is
    apparently mounting into uncontrollable heights, he can more and more
    operate in an atmosphere of emergency, which again excuses his use of
    such treatments as electric shock, the pre-frontal lobotomy,
    trans-orbital leucotomy, and other operations long-since practiced in
    Russia on political prisoners.

    IT is to the interest of the psychopolitical operative that the
    possibility of curing the insane be outlawed and ruled out at all
    times. For the sake of obedience on the part of the population and
    their general reaction, a level or brutality must, at all costs, be
    maintained. Only in this way can the absolute judgement of the
    psychopolitical operative as to the sanity or insanity of public
    figures be maintained in complete belief. Using sufficient brutality
    upon their patients, the public at large will come to believe utterly
    anything they say about their patients. Furthermore, and much more
    important, the field of the mind must be sufficiently dominated by th
    e psychopolitical operative, so that whatever tenets of the mind are
    taught they will be hypnotically believed. The psychopolitical
    operative, having under his control all psychology classes in an area,
    can thus bring about a complete reformation of the future leaders of a
    country in their educational processes, and so prepare them for

    To be obeyed, once must be believed. If one is sufficiently believed,
    one will unquestioningly be obeyed.

    When he is fortunate enough to obtain into his hands anyone near to a
    political or important figure, this factor of obedience becomes very
    important. A certain amount of fear or terror must be engendered in
    the person under treatment so that this person will then take
    immediate orders, completely and unquestioningly, from the
    psychopolitical operative, and so be able to influence the actions of
    that person who is to be reached.

    Bringing about this state of mind on the part of a population and its
    leaders -- that a psychopolitical operative must, at all times, be
    believed -- could eventually be attended by very good fortune. It is
    not too much to hope that psychopolitical operatives would then, in a
    country such as the United States, become the very intimate advisors
    to political figures, even to the point of advising the entirety of a
    political party as to its actions in an election.

    The long view is the important view. Belief is engendered by a certain
    amount of fear and terror from an authoritative level, and this will
    be followed by obedience.

    The general propaganda which would best serve Psychopolitics would be
    a continual insistence that certain authoritative levels of healing,
    deemed this or that the correct treatment of insanity. These
    treatments must always include a certain amount of brutality.
    Propaganda should continue and stress the rising incidence of insanity
    in a country. The entire field of human behaviour, for the benefit of
    the country, can, at length, be broadened into abnormal behaviour.
    Thus, anyone indulging in any eccentricity, particularly the
    eccentricity of combatting psychopolitics, could be silenced by the
    authoritative opinion on the part of a psychopolitical operative that
    he is acting in an abnormal fashion. This, with some good fortune,
    could bring the person into the hands of the psychopolitical operative
    so as to forever more disable him, or to swerve his loyalties by
    pain-drug hypnotism.

    On the subject of obedience itself, the most optimum obedience is
    unthinking obedience. The command gien must be obeyed without any
    rationalizing on the part of the subject. The command must, therefore,
    be implanted below the thinking process of the subject to be
    influenced, and must react upon him in such a way as to bring no
    mental alertness on his part.

    It is in the interest of Psychopolitics that a population be told that
    an hypnotized person will not do anything against his actual will,
    will not commit immoral acts, and will not act so as to endanger
    himself. While this may be true of light, parlour hypnotism, it
    certainly is not true of commands implanted with the use of electric
    shock, drugs, or heavy punishment. It is counted upon completely that
    this will be discredited to the general public by psychopolitical
    operatives, for if it were to be generally known that individuals
    would obey commands harmful to themselves, and would commit immoral
    acts while under the influence of deep hypnotic commands, the actions
    of many people, working unknowingly in favor of Communism, would be
    too-well understood. People acting under deep hypnotic commands should
    be acting apparently of their own volition and out of their own

    The entire subject of psychopolitical hypnosis, Psychopolitics in
    general, depends for its defense upon continual protest from
    authoritative sources that such things are not possible. And, should
    anyone unmask a psychopolitical operative, he should at once declare
    the whole thing a physical impossibility, and use his authoritative
    position to discount any accusation. Should any writings of
    Psychopolitics come to view, it is only necessary to brand them a hoax
    and laugh them out of countenance. Thus, psychopolitical activities
    are easy to defend.

    When psychopolitical activities have reached a certain peak, from
    there on it is almost impossible to undo them, for the population is
    already under the duress of obedience to the psychopolitical
    operatives and their dupes. The ingredient of obedience is important,
    for the complete belief in the psychopolitical operative renders this
    statement cancelling any challenge about psychopolitical operations
    irrefutable. The optimum circumstances would be to occupy every
    position which would be consulted by officials on any question or
    suspicion arising on the subject of Psychopolitics. Thus, a
    psychiatric advisor should be placed near at hand in every government
    operation. As all suspicions would then be referred to him, no action
    would ever be taken, and the goal of Communism could be realized in
    that nation.

    Psychopolitics depends, from the viewpoint of the layman, upon its
    fantastic aspects. These are its best defense, but above all these
    defenses is implicit obedience on the part of officials and the
    general public, because of the character of the psychopolitical
    operative in the field of healing.

                                 CHAPTER VII
                         ANATOMY OF STIMULUS-RESPONSE
                              MECHANISMS OF MAN

    Man is a stimulus-response animal. His entire reasoning capabilities,
    even his ethics and morals, depends upon stimulus-response machinery.
    This has long been demonstrated by such Russians as Pavlov, and the
    principles have long been used in handling the recalcitrant, in
    training children, and in bringing about a state of optimum behaviour
    on the part of a population.

    Having no independent will of his own, Man is easily handled by
    stimulus-response mechanisms. It is only necessary to install a
    stimulus into the mental anatomy of Man to have that stimulus
    reactivate and respond any time an exterior command source calls it
    into being.

    The mechanisms of stimulus-response are easily understood. The body
    takes pictures of every action in the environment around the
    individual. When the environment includes brutality, terror, shock,
    and other such activities, the mental image picture gained, contains
    in itself all the ingredients of the environment. If the individual,
    himself, was injured during the moment, the injury, itself, will re
    manifest when called upon to respond by an exterior command source.

    As an example of this, if an individual is beaten, and is told during
    the entirety of the beating that he must obey certain officials, he
    will, in the future, feel the beginnings of the pain the moment he
    begins to disobey. The installed pain, itself, reacts as a policeman,
    for the experience of the individual demonstrates to him that he
    cannot combat, and will receive pain from, certain officials.

    The mind can become very complex in its stimulus responses. As easily
    demonstrated in hypnotism, an entire chain of commands, having to do
    with a great many complex actions, can be beaten, shocked, or
    terrorized into a mind, and will there lie dormant until called into
    view by some similarity in the circumstances of the environment to the
    incident of punishment.

    The stimulus we call the "incident of punishment" where the response
    mechanism need only contain small part of the stimulus to call into
    view the mental image picture, and cause it to exert against the body,
    the pain sequence. So long as the individual obeys the picture, or
    follows the commands of the stimulus implantation he is free from

    The behaviour of children is regulated in this fashion in every
    civilized country. The father, finding himself unable to bring about
    immediate obedience and training on the part of his child, resorts to
    physical violence, and after administering punishment of a physical
    nature to the child on several occasions, is gratified to experience
    complete obedience on the part of the child each time the father
    speaks. In that parents are wont to be lenient with their children,
    they seldom administer sufficient punishment to bring about entirely
    optimum obedience. The ability of the organism to withstand punishment
    is very great. Complete and implicit response can be gained only by
    stimuli sufficiently brutal to actually injure the organism. The
    Kossack method of breaking wild horses is a useful example. The horse
    will not restrain itself or take any of its rider's commands. The
    rider, wishing to break it, mounts, and takes a flask of strong Vodka,
    and smashes it between the horse's ears. The horse, struck to its
    knees , its yes filled with alcohol, mistaking the dampness for blood,
    instantly and thereafter gives its attention to the rider and never
    needs further breaking. Difficulty in breaking horses is only
    occasioned when light punishments are administered. There is some
    mawkish sentimentality about "breaking the spirit," but what is
    desired here is an obedient horse, and sufficient brutality brings
    about an obedient horse.

    The stimulus-response mechanisms of the body are such that the pain
    and the command subdivide so as to counter each other. The mental
    image picture of the punishment will not become effective upon the
    individual unless the command content is disobeyed. It is pointed out
    in many early Russian writings that this is a survival mechanism. It
    has already been well and thoroughly used in the survival of

    It is only necessary to deliver into the organism a sufficient
    stimulus to gain an adequate response.

    So long as the organism obeys the stimulus whenever it is restimulated
    in the future, it does not suffer from the pain of the stimulus. But
    should it disobey the command content of the stimulus, the stimulus
    reacts to punish the individual. Thus, we have an optimum
    circumstance, and one of the basic principles of Psychopolitics. A
    sufficiently installed stimulus will thereafter remain as a police
    mechanism within the individual to cause him to follow the commands
    and directions given to him. Should he fail to follow these commands
    and directions, the stimulus mechanism will go into action. As the
    commands are there with the moment of duress, the commands themselves
    need never be repeated, and if the individual were to depart thousands
    of miles away from the psychopolitical operative, he will still obey
    the psychopolitical operative, or, himself, become extremely ill and
    in agony. These principles, built from the earliest days of Pavlov, by
    constant and continuous Russian development, have, at last, become of
    enormous use to us in our conquest. For less modern and well-informed
    countries of Earth, lacking this mechanism, failing to understand it,
    and coaxed into somnolence by our own psychopolitical operatives, who
    discount and disclaim it, cannot avoid succumbing to it.

    The body is less able to resist a stimulus if it has insufficient food
    and is weary. Therefore, it is necessary to administer all such
    stimuli to individuals when their ability to resist has been reduced
    by privation and exhaustion. Refusal to let them sleep over many days,
    denying them adequate food, then brings about an optimum state for the
    receipt of a stimulus. If the person is then given an electrical
    shock, and is told while the shock is in action that he must obey and
    do certain things, he has no choice but to do them, or to
    re-experience, because of his mental image picture of it, the electric
    shock. This highly scientific and intensely workable mechanism cannot
    be over-estimated in the practice of psychopolitics.

    Drugging the individual produces an artificial exhaustion, and if he
    is drugged, or shocked and beaten, and given a string of commands, his
    loyalties, themselves, can be definitely rearranged. This is P.D.H.,
    or Pain-Drug Hypnosis.

    The psychopolitical operative in training should be thoroughly studied
    in the subject of hypnotism and post-hypnotic suggestion. He should
    pay particular attention to the "forgetter mechanism" aspect of
    hypnotism, which is to say, implantation in the unconscious mind. He
    should note particularly that a person given a command in a hypnotic
    state, and then told when still in that condition to forget it, will
    execute it on a stimulus-response signal in the environment after he
    has "awakened" from his hypnotic trance.

    Having mastered these details fully, he should, by practicing upon
    criminals and prisoners, or inmates available to him, produce the
    hypnotic trance by drugs, and drive home post-hypnotic suggestions by
    pain administered to the drugged person. He should then study the
    reactions of the person when "awakened," and should give him the
    stimulus-response signal which would throw into action the commands
    given while in a drugged state of duress. By much practice he can then
    learn the threshold dosages of various or additional drug shock
    necessary to produce the optimum obedience to the commands. He should
    also satisfy himself that the is no possible method known to Man --
    there must be no possible method known to Man -- of bringing the
    patient to awareness of what has happened to him, keeping him in a
    state of obedience and response while ignorant of its cause.

    Using criminals and prisoners, the psychopolitical operative in
    training should then experiment with duress in the absence of
    privation,administering electric shocks, beatings, and terror-inducing
    tactics, accompanied by the same mechanisms as those employed in
    hypnotism, and watch the conduct of the person when no longer under

    The operative in training should carefully remark those who show a
    tendency to protest, so that he may recognize possible recovery of
    memory of the commands implanted. Purely for his own education, he
    should then satisfy himself as to the efficiency of brain surgery in
    disabling the non-responsive prisoner.

    The boldness of the psychopolitical operative can be increased
    markedly by permitting persons who have been given pain-drug hypnosis
    and who have demonstrated symptoms of rebelling or recalling into the
    society to observe how the label of "insanity" discredits and
    discounts the statements of the person.

    Exercises in bringing about insanity seizures at will, simply by
    demonstrating a signal to persons upon whom pain-drug hypnosis has
    been used, and exercises in making the seizures come about through
    talking to certain persons in certain places and times should also be

    Brain surgery, as developed in Russia, should also be practiced by the
    psychopolitical operative in training, to give him full confidence in
    1) the crudeness with which it can be done, 2) the certainty of
    erasure of the stimulus-response mechanism itself, 3) the production
    of imbecility, idiocy, and dis-coordination on the part of the
    patient, and 4) the small amount of comment which casualties in brain
    surgery occasion.

    Exercises in sexual attack on patients should be practiced by the
    psychopolitical operative to demonstrate the inability of the
    pain-drug hypnosis to recall the attack, while indoctrinating a lust
    for further sexual activity on the part of the patient. Sex, in all
    animals, is a powerful motivator, and is no less so in the animal Man,
    and the occasioning of sexual liaison between females of a target
    family and indicated males, under the control of the psychopolitical
    operative, must be demonstrated to be possible with complete security
    for the psychopolitical operative, thus giving into his hands and
    excellent weapon for the breaking down of familial relations and
    consequent public disgraces for the psychopolitical target.

    Just as a dog can be trained, so can a man be trained. Just as a horse
    can be trained, so can a man be trained. Sexual lust, masochism, and
    any other desirable perversion can be induced by pain-drug hypnosis
    and the benefit of the Psychopolitics.

    The changes of loyalties, allegiances, and sources of command can be
    occasioned easily by psychopolitical technologies, and these should be
    practiced and understood by the psychopolitical operative before he
    begins to tamper with psychopolitical targets of magnitude.

    The actual simplicity of the subject of pain-drug hypnosis, the use of
    electric shock, drugs, insanity-producing injections, and other
    material, should be masked entirely by technical nomenclature, the
    protest of benefit to the patient, by an authoritarian pose and
    position, and by carefully cultivating governmental positions in the
    country to be conquered.

    Although the psychopolitical operative working in universities where
    he can direct the curricula of psychology classes is often tempted to
    teach some of the principles of Psychopolitics to the susceptible
    students in the psychology classes, he must be thoroughly enjoined to
    limit his information in psychology classes to the transmittal of the
    tenets of Communism under the guise of psychology, and must limit his
    activities in bringing about a state of mind on the part of the
    students where they will accept Communist tenets as those of their own
    action and as modern scientific principles. The psychopolitical
    operative must not, at any time, educate students fully in
    stimulus-response mechanisms, and must not impart to them, save those
    who will become his fellow workers,the exact principles of
    Psychopolitics. It is not necessary to do so, and it is dangerous.

                                 CHAPTER VIII

    Degradation and conquest are companions.

    In order to be conquered, a nation must be degraded, either by acts of
    war, by being overrun, by being forced into humiliating treaties of
    peace, or by the treatment of her populace under the armies of the
    conqueror. However, degradation can be accomplished much more
    insidiously and much more effectively by consistent and continual

    Defamation is the best and foremost weapon of Psychopolitics on the
    broad field. Continual and constant degradation of national leaders,
    national institutions, national practices, and national heroes must be
    systematically carried out, but this is the chief function of the
    Communist Party Members, in general, not the psychopolitician.

    The realm of defamation and degradation, of the psychopolitician, is
    Man himself. By attacking the character and morals of Man himself, and
    by bringing about,through contamination of youth, a general degraded
    feeling, command of the populace is facilitated to a very marked

    There is a curve of degradation which leads downward to a point where
    the endurance of an individual is almost at end, and any sudden action
    toward him will place him in a state of shock. Similarly, a soldier
    held prisoner can be abused, denied, defamed, and degraded until the
    slightest motion on the part of his captors will cause him to flinch.
    Similarly, the slightest word on the part of his captors will cause
    him to obey, or vary his loyalties and beliefs. Given sufficient
    degradation, a prisoner can be caused to murder his fellow countrymen
    in the same stockade. Experiments on German prisoners have lately
    demonstrated that only after seventy days of filthy food, little
    sleep, and nearly untenable quarters, that the least motion toward the
    prisoner would bring about a state of shock beyond his endurance
    threshold, and would cause him to hypnotically receive anything said
    to him. Thus, it is possible, in an entire stockade of prisoners, to
    the number of thousands, to being about a state of complete servile
    obedience, and without the labor of personally addressing each one, to
    pervert their loyalties and implant in them adequate commands to
    insure their future conduct, even when released to their own people.

    By lower the endurance of a person, a group, or a nation, and by
    constant degradation and defamation, it is possible to induce, thus, a
    state of shock which will receive adequately any command given.

    The first thing to be degraded in any nation is the state of Man,
    himself. Nations which have high ethical tone are difficult to
    conquer. Their loyalties are hard to shake, their allegiance to their
    leaders is fanatical, and what they usually call their spiritual
    integrity cannot be violated by duress. It is not efficient to attack
    a nation in such a frame of mind. It is the basic purpose of
    Psychopolitics to reduce that state of mind to a point where it can be
    ordered and enslaved. Thus, the first target is Man, himself. He must
    be degraded from a spiritual being to an animalistic reaction pattern.
    He must think of himself as an animal, capable only of animalistic
    reactions. He must no longer think of himself, or of his fellows, as
    capable of "spiritual endurance," or nobility.

    The best approach toward degradation in its first stages is the
    propaganda of "scientific approach" to Man. Man must be consistently
    demonstrated to be a mechanism without individuality, and it must be
    educated into a populace under attack that Man's individualistic
    reactions are the product of mental derangement. The populace must be
    brought into the belief that every individual within it who rebels in
    any way, shape, or form against the efforts and activities to enslave
    the whole, must be considered to be a deranged person whose
    eccentricities are neurotic and insane, and who must have at once the
    treatment of a psychopolitician.

    An optimum condition in such a program of degradation would address
    itself to the military forces of the nation, and bring them rapidly
    away from any other belief than the disobedient one must be subjected
    to "mental treatment." An enslavement of a population can fail only if
    these rebellious individuals are left to exert their individual
    influences upon their fellow citizens, sparking them into rebellion,
    calling into account their nobilities and freedoms. Unless these
    restless individuals are stamped out and given into the hands of
    psychopolitical operatives early in the conquest,there will be nothing
    but trouble as the conquest continues. The officials of the
    government, students, readers, partakers of entertainment,must all be
    indoctrinated, by whatever means, into the complete belief that the
    restless, the ambitions, the natural leaders, are suffering from
    environmental maladjustments, which can only be healed by recourse to
    psychopolitical operatives in the guise of mental healers.

    By thus degrading the general belief in the status of Man it is
    relatively simple, with co-operation from the economic salients being
    driven into the country, to drive citizens apart, one from another, to
    bring about a question of the wisdom of their own government, and to
    cause them to actively beg for enslavement.

    The educational programs of Psychopolitics must, at every hand, seek
    out the levels of youth who will become the leaders in the country's
    future, and educate them into the belief of the animalistic nature of
    Man. This must be made fashionable. They must be taught to frown upon
    ideas, upon individual endeavor. They must be taught, above all
    things, that the salvation of Man is to be found only by his adjusting
    thoroughly to this environment.

    This educational program in the field of Psychopolitics, can best be
    followed by bringing about a compulsory training in some subject such
    as psychology or other mental practice, and ascertaining that each
    broad program of psychopolitical training be supervised by a
    psychiatrist who is a trained psychopolitical operative.

    As it seems in foreign nations that the church is the most ennobling
    influence, each and every branch and activity of each and every
    church, must, one way or another, be discredited. Religion must become
    unfashionable by demonstrating broadly, through psychopolitical
    indoctrination, that the soul is non-existent, and that Man is an
    animal. The lying mechanisms of Christianity lead men to foolishly
    brave deeds. By teaching them that there is a life here-after, the
    liability of courageous acts, while living, is thus lessened. The
    liability of any act must be markedly increased if a populace is to be
    obedient. Thus, there must be no standing belief in the church, and
    the power of the church must be denied at every hand.

    The psychopolitical operative, in his program of degradation, should
    at all times bring into question any family which is deeply religious,
    and, should any neurosis or insanity be occasioned in that family, to
    blame and hold responsible their religious connections for the
    neurotic or psychotic condition. Religion must be made synonymous with
    neurosis and psychosis. People who are deeply religious would be less
    and less held responsible for their own sanity, and should more and
    more be relegated to the ministrations of psychopolitical operatives.

    By perverting the institutions of a nation and bringing about a
    general degradation, by interfering with the economics of a nation to
    the degree that privation and depression come about, only minor shocks
    will be necessary to produce, on the populace as a whole, an obedient
    reaction or an hysteria. Thus, the mere threat of war, the mere threat
    of aviation bombings, could cause the population to sue instantly for
    peace. It is a long and arduous road for the psychopolitical operative
    to achieve this state of mind on the part of the whole nation, but no
    more than twenty or thirty years should be necessary in the entire
    program. Having to hand, as we do, weapons with which to accomplish
    the goal.

                                  CHAPTER IX
                             THE ORGANIZATION OF
                           MENTAL HEALTH CAMPAIGNS

    Psychopolitical operatives should at all times be alert to the
    opportunity to organize "for the betterment of the community" mental
    health clubs or groups. By thus inviting the co-operation of the
    population as a whole in mental health programs, the terrors of mental
    aberration can be disseminated throughout the populace. Furthermore,
    each one of these mental health groups,properly guided, can bring, at
    last, legislative pressure against the government to secure adequately
    the position of the psychopolitical operative, and to obtain for him
    government grants and facilities, thus bringing a government to
    finance its own downfall.

    Mental health organizations must carefully delete from their ranks
    anyone actually proficient in the handling or treatment of mental
    health. Thus must be excluded priests, ministers, actually trained
    psychoanalysts, good hypnotists, or trained Dianeticists. These, with
    some cognizance on the subject of mental aberration and its treatment,
    and with some experience in observing the mentally deranged, if
    allowed frequency within institutions,and if permitted to receive
    literature, would, sooner or later, become suspicious of the
    activities engaged upon by the psychopolitical operative. These must
    be defamed and excluded as "untrained," "unskillful," "quacks," or
    "perpetrators of hoaxes."

    No mental health movement with actual goals of mental therapy should
    be continued in existence in any nation. For instance, the use of
    Chinese acupuncture in the treatment of mental and physical
    derangement must, in China, be stamped out and discredited thoroughly,
    as it has some efficacy, and, more importantly, its practitioners
    understand, through long conversation with it, many of the principles
    of actual mental health and aberration.

    In the field of mental health, the psychopolitician must occupy, and
    continue to occupy, through various arguments, the authoritative
    position on the subject. There is always the danger that problems of
    mental health may be resolved by some individual or group, which might
    then derange the program of the psychopolitical operative in his
    mental health clubs.

    City officials, socialites, and other unknowing individuals, on the
    subject of mental health, should be invited to full co-operation in
    the activity of mental health groups. But the entirety of this
    activity should be to finance better facilities for the
    psychopolitical practitioner. To these groups it must be continually
    stressed that the entire subject of mental illness is so complex that
    none of them, certainly, could understand any part of it. Thus, the
    club should be kept on a social and financial level.

    Where groups interested in the health of the community have already
    been formed, they should be infiltrated and taken over, and if this is
    not possible, they should be discredited and debarred, and the
    officialdom of the area should be invited to stamp them out as

    When a hostile group dedicated to mental health is discovered, the
    psychopolitician should have recourse to the mechanisms of peyote,
    mescaline, and later drugs which cause temporary insanity. He should
    send persons, preferably those well under his control, into the mental
    health group, whether Christian Science or Dianetics or faith
    preachers to demonstrate their abilities upon this new person. These,
    in demonstrating their abilities, will usually act with enthusiasm.
    Midway in the course of their treatment, a quiet injection of peyote,
    mescaline, or other drug, or an electric shock, will produce the
    symptoms of insanity in the patient which has been sent to the target
    group. The patient thus demonstrating momentary insanity should be
    immediately be reported to the police and taken away to some area of
    incarceration managed by psychopolitical operatives, and so placed out
    of site. Officialdom will thus come into a belief that this group
    drives individuals insane by their practices,and the practices of the
    group will them be despised and prohibited by law.

    The values of a widespread mental health organization are manifest
    when one realizes that any government can be forced to provide
    facilities for psychopolitical operatives in the form of psychiatric
    wards in all hospitals, in national institutions totally in the hands
    of psychopolitical operatives, and in the establishment of clinics
    where youth can be contacted and arranged more seemingly to the
    purposes of Psychopolitics.

    Such groups form a political force, which can then legalize any law or
    authority desired for the psychopolitical operative.

    The securing of authority over such mental health organizations is
    done mainly be appeal to education. A psychopolitical operative should
    make sure that those psychiatrists he controls, those psychologists
    whom he has under his orders, have been trained for an excessively
    long period of time. The longer the training period which can be
    required, the safer the psychopolitical program, since no new group of
    practitioners can arise to disclose and dismay psychopolitical
    programs. Furthermore, the groups themselves cannot hope to obtain any
    full knowledge of the subject,not having behind them many, many years
    of intensive training.

    Vienna has been carefully maintained by Psychopolitics, since it was
    the home of Psychoanalysis. Although our activities have long been
    dispersed any of the gains made by Freudian groups, and have taken
    over these groups, the proximity of Vienna to Russia, where
    Psychopolitics is operating abroad, and the necessity "for further
    study" by psychopolitical operatives in the birth-place of
    Psychoanalysis, makes periodic contacts with headquarters possible.
    Thus the word "psychoanalysis" must be stressed at all times, and must
    be pretended to be a thorough part of the psychiatrist's training.

    Psychoanalysis has the very valuable possession of a vocabulary, and a
    workability which is sufficiently poor to avoid recovery of
    psychopolitical implantations. It can be made fashionable throughout
    mental health organizations, and by learning its patter, and by
    believing they see some of its phenomena, the members of mental health
    groups can believe themselves conversant with mental health. Because
    its stress is sex, it is, itself, adequate defamation of character,
    and serves the purposes of degradation well. Thus, in organizing
    mental health groups, the literature furnished such groups should be
    psychoanalytical in nature.

    If a group of persons interested in suppressing juvenile delinquency,
    in caring for the insane, and the promotion of psychopolitical
    operatives and their actions can be formed in every major city of a
    country under conquest, the success of a psychopolitical program is
    assured, since these groups seem to represent a large segment of the
    population. By releasing continuing propaganda on the subject of dope
    addiction, homosexuality, and depraved conduct on the part of the
    young, even the judges of a country can become suborned into reacting
    violently against the youth of the country,thus mis-aligning and
    aligning the support of youth.

    The communication lines of psychopolitics, if such mental health
    organizations can be well established, can thus run from its most
    prominent citizens to its government. It is not too much to hope that
    the influence of such groups could bring about a psychiatric ward in
    every hospital in the land,and psychiatrists in every company and
    regiment of the nation's army, and whole government institutes manned
    entirely by psychopolitical operatives, into which ailing government
    officials could be placed, to the advantage of the psychopolitician.

    If a psychiatric ward could be established in every hospital in every
    city of a nation, it is certain that, at one time or another, every
    prominent citizen of that nation could come under the ministrations of
    psychopolitical operatives or their dupes.

    The validation of psychiatric position in the armed forces and
    security-minded institutions of the nation under conquest could bring
    about a flow and fund of information unlike any other program which
    could be conceived. If every pilot who flies a new plane could come
    under the questioning of a psychopolitical operative, if the compiler
    of every military action could thus come under the review of
    psychopolitical operatives, the simplicity with which information can
    be extracted by the use of certain drugs, without the after-knowledge
    of the soldier, would entirely cripple any over action toward
    Communism. If the nation could be educated into turning over to
    psychopolitical operatives ever recalcitrant or rebellious soldier, it
    would lose its best fighters. Thus, the advantage of mental health
    organizations can be seen, for these, by exerting an apparent public
    pressure against the government, can achieve these ends and goals.

    The financing of a psychopolitical operation is difficult unless it is
    done by the citizens and government. Although vast sums of money can
    be obtained from private patients, and from relatives who wish persons
    put away, it is, nevertheless, difficult to obtain millions, unless
    the government itself is co-operating. The co-operation of the
    government to obtain these vast sums of money is best obtained by the
    organization of mental health groups composed of leading citizens, and
    who bring their lobbying abilities to bear against the nation's
    government. Thus can be financed many programs, which might otherwise
    have to be laid aside by the psychopolitician.

    The psychopolitical operative should bend consistent and continual
    effort toward forming and continuing in action innumerable mental
    health groups.

    The psychopolitical operative should also spare no expense in smashing
    out of existence, by whatever means, any actual healing group, such as
    that of acupuncture, in China; such as Christian Science, Dianetics
    and faith healing, in the United States; such as Catholicism in Italy
    and Spain; and the practical psychological groups of England.

                                  CHAPTER X
                              CONDUCT UNDER FIRE

    The psychopolitician may well find himself under attack as an
    individual or a member of a group. He may be attacked as a Communist,
    through some leak in the organization, he may be attacked for
    malpractice. He may be attacked by the families of people whom he has
    injured. In all cases his conduct of the situation should be calm and
    aloof. He should have behind him the authority of many years of
    training, and he should have participated fully in the building of
    defense in field of insanity which give him the only statement as to
    the conditions of the mind.

    If he has not done his work well, hostile feeling groups may expose an
    individual psychopolitician. These may call into question the efficacy
    of psychiatric treatment such as shock, drugs, and brian surgery.
    Therefore, the psychopolitical operative must have to hand innumerable
    documents which assert enourmously encouraging figures on the subject
    of recovery by reason of shock, brain surgery, drugs and general
    treatment. Not one of these cases cited need be real, but they should
    be documented and printed in such a fashion as to form excellent court

    When his allegiance is attacked, the psychopolitical operative should
    explain his connection with Vienna on the grounds that Vienna is the
    place of study for all important matters of the mind.

    More importantly, he should rule into scorn, by reason of his
    authority, the sanity of the person attacking him, and if the
    psychopolitical archives of the country are adequate many defamatory
    data can be unearthed and presented as a rebuttal.

    Should anyone attempt to expose psychotherapy as a psychopolitical
    activity, the best defense is calling into question the sanity of the
    attacker. The next best defense is authority. The next best defense is
    a validation of psychiatric practices in terms of long and impressive
    figures. The next best defense is the actual removal of the attacker
    by giving him, or them, treatment sufficient to bring about a period
    of insanity for the duration of the trial. This, more than anything
    else, would discredit them, but it is dangerous to practice this, in
    the extreme.

    Psychopolitics should avoid murder and violence, unless it is done in
    the safety of the institution, on persons who have been proven to be
    insane. Where institution deaths appear to be unnecessary, or to rise
    in "unreasonable number," political capital might be made of this by
    city officials or legislature. If the psychopolitical operative has,
    himself, or if his group has done a thorough job, defamatory data
    concerning the person, or connections, of the would-be attacker should
    be on file, should be documented, and should be used in such a way as
    to discourage the inquiry.

    After a period of indoctrination, a country will expect insanity to be
    met by psychopolitical violence. Psychopolitical activities should
    become the only recognized treatment for insanity. Indeed, this can be
    extended to such a length that it could be made illegal for electric
    shock and brain surgery to be omitted in the treatment of a patient.

    In order to defend psychopolitical activities, a great complexity
    should be made of psychiatric, psychoanalytical, and psychological
    technology. Any hearing should be burdened by terminology too
    difficult to be transcribed easily. A great deal should be made out of
    such terms as schizophrenia, paranoia, and other relatively
    undefinable states.

    Psychopolitical tests need not necessarily be in agreement, one to
    another, where they are available to the public. Various types of
    insanity should be characterized by difficult terms. The actual state
    should be made obscure, but by this verbiage it can be built into the
    court or investigating mind that a scientific approach exists and that
    it is too complex for him to understand. It is not to be imagined that
    a judge or a committee of investigation should inquire too deeply into
    the subject of insanity, since they, themselves, part of the
    indoctrinated masses, are already intimidated if the psychopolitical
    activity has caused itself to be well-documented in terms of horror in

    In case of a hearing or trial, the terribleness of insanity itself,
    its threat to the society, should be exaggerated until the court or
    committee believes that the psychopolitical operative is vitally
    necessary in his post and should not be harassed for the activities of
    persons who are irrational.

    An immediate attack upon the sanity of the attacker before any
    possible hearing can take place is the very best defense. It should
    become well-known that "only the insane attack psychiatrists." The
    by-word should be built into the society that paranoia is a condition
    "in which the individual believes he is being attacked by Communists."
    It will be found that this defense is effective.

    Part of the effective defenses should include the entire lack in the
    society of any real psychotherapy. This must be systematically stamped
    out, since a real psychotherapy might possibly uncover the results of
    psychopolitical activities.

    Jurisprudence, in a Capitalistic nation,is of such clumsiness that
    cases are invariably tried in their newspapers. We have handled these
    things much better in Russia, and have uniformly brought people to
    trial with full confessions already arrived at (being implanted)
    before the trial took place.

    Should any whisper, or pamphlet, against psychopolitical activities be
    published, it should be laughed into scorn, branded an immediate hoax,
    and its perpetrator or publisher should be, at the first opportunity,
    branded as insane and by the use of drugs the insanity should be

                                  CHAPTER XI
                                  THE USE OF

    Reactionary nations are of such a composition that they attack a word
    without understanding of it. As the conquest of a nation by Communism
    depends upon imbuing its population with communistic tenets, it is not
    necessary that the term "Communism" be applied at first to the
    educative measures employed.

    As an example, in the United States we have been able to alter the
    works of William James, and others, into a more acceptable pattern,
    and to place the tenets of Karl Marx, Pavlov, Lamarck, and the data of
    Dialectic Materialism into the textbooks of psychology, to such a
    degree that anyone thoroughly studying psychology becomes at once a
    candidate to accept the reasonableness of Communism.

    As every chair of psychology in the United States is occupied by
    persons in our connection, the consistent employment of such texts is
    guaranteed. They are given the authoritative ring, and they are
    carefully taught.

    Constant pressure in the legislatures of the United States can bring
    about legislation to the effect that every student attending a high
    school or university must have classes in psychology.

    Educating broadly the educated strata of the populace into the tenets
    of Communism is thus rendered relatively easy, and when the choice is
    given them whether to continue in a Capitalistic or a Communistic
    condition, they will see, suddenly, in Communism, much more
    reasonability than in Capitalism, which will now be of our own

                                 CHAPTER XII
                               VIOLENT REMEDIES

    As a populace, in general, understand that a violence is necessary in
    the handling of the insane, violent remedies seem to be reasonable.
    Starting from a relatively low level of violence, such as
    strait-jackets and other restraints, it is relatively easy to encroach
    upon the public diffidence for violence by adding more and more
    cruelty into the treatment of the insane.

    By increasing the brutality of "treatment," the public acceptance of
    such treatment will be assisted, and the protest of the individual to
    whom the treatment is given is impossible, since immediately after the
    treatment he is incapable. The family of the individual under
    treatment is suspect for having had in its midst, already, an insane
    person. The family's protest should be discredited.

    The more violent the treatment, the more command value the
    psychopolitical operative will accumulate. Brain operations should
    become standard and commonplace. While the figures of actual deaths
    should be repressed wherever possible, nevertheless, it is of no great
    concern to the psychopolitical operative that many deaths do occur.

    Gradually, the public should be educated into electric shock, first by
    believing that it is very therapeutic, then by believing that it is
    quieting, then by being informed that electric shock usually injures
    the spine and teeth, and finally, that if very often kills or at least
    breaks the spine and removes, violently, the teeth of the patient. It
    is very doubtful if anyone from the lay levels of the public could
    tolerate the observation of a single electric shock treatment.
    Certainly they could not tolerate witnessing a prefrontal lobotomy or
    trans-orbital leucotomy. However, they should be brought up to a level
    where this is possible, where it is the expected treatment, and where
    the details, of the treatment itself can be made known, thus to the
    increase of psychopolitical prestige.

    The more violent the treatment, the more hopeless insanity will seem
    to be.

    The society should be worked up to the level where every recalcitrant
    young man can be brought into court and assigned to a psychopolitical
    operative, be given electric shocks, and reduced into unimaginative
    docility for the remainder of his days.

    By continuous and increasing advertising of the violence of treatment,
    the public will at last come to tolerate the creation of zombie
    conditions to such a degree that they will probably employ zombies, if
    given to them. Thus a large strata of the society, particularly that
    which was rebellious, can be reduced to the service of the

    By various means, a public must be convinced, at least, that insanity
    can only be met by shock, torture, deprivation, defamation,
    discrediting, violence, maiming, death, punishment in all its forms.
    The society, at the same time, must be educated into the belief of
    increasing insanity within its ranks. This creates an emergency, and
    places the psychopolitician in a saviour role, and places him, at
    length, in charge of the society.

                                 CHAPTER XIII

    The psychopolitical dupe is a well-trained individual who serves in
    complete obedience to the psychopolitical operative.

    In that nearly all persons in training are expected to undergo a
    certain amount of treatment in any field of the mind, it is not too
    difficult to persuade persons in the field of mental healing to
    subject themselves to mild or minor drugs or shock. If this can be
    done, a psychological dupe on the basis of pain-drug hypnosis can
    immediately result.

    Recruitment into the ranks of "mental healing" can best be done by
    carefully bringing to it only those healing students who are, to some
    slight degree, already depraved, or who have been "treated" by
    psychopolitical operatives.

    Recruitment is effected by making the field of mental healing very
    attractive, financially, and sexually.

    The amount of promiscuity which can be induced in mental patients can
    work definitely to the advantage of the psychopolitical recruiting
    agent. The dupe can thus be induced into many lurid sexual contacts,
    and these, properly witnessed, can thereafter be used as blackmail
    material to assist any failure of pain-drug hypnosis in causing him to
    execute orders.

    The promise of unlimited sexual opportunities, the promise of complete
    dominion over the bodies and minds of helpless patients, the promise
    of having lawlessness without detection, can thus attract to "mental
    healing" many desirable recruits who will willingly fall in line with
    psychopolitical activities.

    In that the psychopolitician has under his control the insane of the
    nation, most of them have criminal tendencies, and as he can, as his
    movement goes forward, recruit for his ranks the criminals themselves,
    he has unlimited numbers of human beings to employ on whatever
    projects he may see fit. In that the insane will execute destructive
    projects without question, if given the proper amount of punishment
    and implantation, the degradation of the country's youth, the
    defamation of its leaders, the suborning of its courts becomes
    childlishly easy.

    The psychopolitician has the advantage of naming as a delusory symptom
    any attempt on the part of the patient to expose commands.

    The psychopolitician should carefully adhere to institutions and
    should eschew practice whenever possible, since this gives him the
    greatest number of human beings to control to the use of Communism.
    When he does act in private practice, it should be only in contact
    with the families of the wealthy and the officials of the country.

                                 CHAPTER XIV

    You must know that until recent times the complete subject of mental
    derangement, whether so light as simple worry or so heavy as insanity,
    was the sphere of activity of the church and only the church.

    Traditionally in civilized nations and barbaric ones the priesthood
    alone had in complete charge the mental conditions of the citizen. As
    a matter of great concern to the psychopolitician this tendency still
    exists in every public in the Western World and scientific inroads
    into this sphere has occurred only in official and never in public

    The magnificent tool wielded for us by Wundt would be as nothing if it
    were not for official insistence in civilized countries that
    "scientific practices" be applied to the problem of the mind. Without
    this official insistence or even if it relapsed for a moment, the
    masses would grasp stupidly for the priest, the minister, and the
    clergy when mental condition came in question. Today in Europe and
    America "scientific practices" in the field of the mind would not last
    moments if not enforced entirely by officialdom.

    It must be carefully hidden that the incidence of insanity has
    increased only since thee "scientific practices" were applied. Great
    remarks must be made of the "the pace of modern living" and other
    myths as the cause of the increased neurosis in the world. It is
    nothing to us what causes it if anything does. It is everything to us
    that no evidence of any kind shall be tolerated afoot to permit the
    public tendency toward the church its way. If given their heads, if
    left to themselves to decide, independent of officialdom, where they
    would place their deranged loved ones the public would choose
    religious sanitariums and would avoid as if plagued places where
    "scientific practices" prevail.

    Given any slightest encouragement, public support would swing on an
    instant all mental healing into the hands of the churches. And there
    are Churches waiting to receive it, clever churches. That terrible
    monster, the Roman Catholic Church, still dominates mental healing
    heavily throughout the Christian world and their well schooled priests
    are always at work to turn the public their way. Among Fundamentalist
    and Pentecostal groups, healing campaigns are conducted, which,
    because of their results, win many to the cult of Christianity. In the
    field of pure healing the Church of Christ Science of Boston,
    Massachusetts excels in commanding the public favor and operates many
    sanitariums. All of these must be swept aside. They must be ridiculed
    and defamed and every cure they advertise must be asserted a hoax. A
    full fifth of a psychopolitician's time should be devoted to smashing
    these threats. Just as in Russian we had to destroy, after many, many
    years of most arduous work, the Church, so we must destroy all faiths
    in nations marked for conquest.

    Insanity must be made to hound the footsteps of every priest and
    practitioner. His best results must be turned to jabbering insanities
    no matter what means we have to use.

    You need not care what effect you have upon the public. The effect you
    care about is the one upon officials. You must recruit every agency of
    the nation marked for slaughter into a foaming hatred of religious
    healing. You must suborn district attorneys and judges into an intense
    belief as fervent as an ancient faith in God that Christian Science or
    any other religious practice which might devote itself to mental
    healing is vicious, bad, insanity-causing, publicly hated and

    You must suborn and recruit any medical healing organization into
    collusion in this campaign. You must appeal to their avarice and even
    their humanity to invite their co-operation in smashing all religious
    healing and thus, to our end, care of the insane. You must see that
    such societies have only qualified Communist-indoctrinees as their
    advisors in this matter. For you can use such societies. They are
    stupid and stampede easily. Their cloak and degrees can be used quite
    well to mask any operation we care to have masked. We must make them
    partners in our endeavor so that they will never be able to crawl from
    beneath our thumb and discredit us.

    We have battled in America since the century's turn to bring to
    nothing any and all Christian influences and we are succeeding. While
    we today seem to be kind to the Christian, remember, we have yet to
    influence the "Christian world" to our ends. When that is done we
    shall have an end of them everywhere. You may see them here in Russia
    as trained apes. They do not know their tether is long only until the
    apes in other lands have become unwary.

    You must work until "religion" is synonymous with "insanity."" You
    must work until the officials of city, county and state governments
    will not think twice before they pounce upon religious groups as
    public enemies.

    Remember, all lands are governed by the few and only pretend to
    consult with the many. It is no different in America. The petty
    official, the maker of laws alike can be made to believe the worst. It
    is not necessary to convince the masses. It is only necessary to work
    incessantly upon the official, using personal defamations, wild lies,
    false evidences and constant propaganda to make him fight for you
    against the church or against any practitioner.

    Like the official, the bona-fide medical healer also believes the
    worst if it can be shown to him as dangerous competition. And like the
    Christian, should he seek to take from us any right we have gained, we
    shall finish him as well.

    We must be like the vine upon the tree. We use the tree to climb and
    then, strangling it, grow into power on the nourishment of its flesh.

    We must strike from our path any opposition. We must use for our tools
    any authority that comes to hand. And then at last, the decades sped,
    we can dispense with all authority save our own and triumph the
    greater glory of the Party.

                                  CHAPTER XV
                       PROPOSALS WHICH MUCH BE AVOIDED

    There are certain damaging movements which could interrupt the
    psychopolitical conquest. These coming from some quarters of the
    country, might gain headway and should be spotted before they do, and
    stamped out.

    Proposals may be made by large and powerful groups in the country to
    return the insane to the care of those who have handled mental healing
    for tribes and populace for centuries--the priest. Any movement to
    place clergymen in charge of institutions should be fought on the
    grounds of incompetence and the insanity brought about by religion.
    The most destructive thing which could happen to a psychopolitical
    program would be the investment of the ministry with the care of the
    nation's insane.

    If mental hospitals operated by religious groups are in existence,
    they must be discredited and closed, no matter what the cost, for it
    might occur that the actual figures of recovery in such institutions
    would become known, and that the lack of recovery in general
    institutions might be compared to them, and this might lead to a
    movement to place the clergy in charge of the insane. Every argument
    must be advanced early, to overcome any possibility of this ever

    A country's law must carefully be made to avoid any rights of person
    to the insane. Any suggested laws or Constitutional Amendments which
    make the harming of the insane unlawful, should be fought to the
    extreme, on the grounds that only violent measures can succeed. If the
    law were to protect the insane, as it normally does not, the entire
    psychopolitical program would very possibly collapse.

    Any movements to increase or place under surveillance the orders
    required to hospitalize the mentally ill should be discouraged. This
    should be left entirely in the hands of persons well under the control
    of psychopolitical operatives. It should be done with minimum
    formality, and no recovery of the insane from an institution should be
    possible by any process of law. Thus, any movement to add to the legal
    steps of the processes of commitment and release should be discouraged
    on the grounds of emergency. To obviate this, the best action is to
    place a psychiatric and detention ward for the mentally ill in every
    hospital in a land.

    Any writings of a psychopolitical nature, accidentally disclosing
    themselves, should be prevented. All actual literature on the subject
    of insanity and its treatment should be suppressed, first by actual
    security, and second by complex verbage which renders it
    incomprehensible. The actual figures of recovery or death should never
    be announced in any papers. Any investigation attempting to discover
    whether or not psychiatry or psychology has ever cured anyone should
    be immediately discouraged and laughed to scorn, and should mobilize
    at the point all psychopolitical operatives. At first, it should be
    ignored, but if this is not possible, the entire weight of all
    psychopoliticians in the nation should be pressed into service. Any
    tactic possible should be employed to prevent this from occurring. To
    rebut it, technical appearing papers should exist as to the tremendous
    number of cures effected by psychiatry and psychology, and whenever
    possible, percentages of cures, no matter how fictitious, should be
    worked into legislative papers, thus forming a background of
    "evidence" which would immediately rebut any effort to actually
    discover anyone who had ever been helped by psychiatry or psychology.

    If the Communistic connections of an psychopolitician should become
    disclosed, it should be attributed to his own carelessness, and he
    should, himself, be immediately branded as eccentric within his own

    Authors of literature which seek to demonstrate the picture of a
    society under complete mental control and duress should be helped
    toward infamy or suicide to discredit their works.

    Any legislation liberalizing any healing practice should be
    immediately fought and defeated. All healing practices should
    gravitate entirely to authoritative levels, and no other opinions
    should be admitted, as these might lead to exposure.

    Movements to improve youth should be invaded and corrupted, as this
    might interrupt campaigns to produce in youth delinquency, addiction,
    drunkenness, and sexual promiscuity.

    Communist workers in the field of newspapers and radio should be
    protected wherever possible by striking out of action, through
    Psychopolitics, any persons consistently attacking them. These, in
    their turn, should be persuaded to give every possible publicity to
    the benefits of psychopolitical activities under the heading of

    No healing group devoted to the mind must be allowed to exist within
    the borders of Russia or its satellites. Only well-vouched-for
    psychopolitical operatives can be continued in their practice, and
    this only for the benefit of the government or against enemy

    Any effort to exclude psychiatrists or psychologists from the armed
    services must be fought.

    Any inquest into the "suicide" or sudden mental derangement of any
    political leader in a nation must be conducted only by psychopolitical
    operatives or their dupes, whether Psychopolitics is responsible or

    Death and violence against persons attacking Communism in a nation
    should be eschewed as forbidden. Violent activity against such persons
    might bring about their martyrdom. Defamation, and the accusation of
    insanity, alone should be employed, and they should be brought at last
    under the ministrations of psychopolitical operatives, such as
    psychiatrists and controlled psychologists.

                                 CHAPTER XVI
                                  IN SUMMARY

    In this time of unlimited weapons, and in national antagonisms, where
    atomic war with Capitalistic powers is possible, Psychopolitics must
    act efficiently as never before.

    Any and all programs of Psychopolitics must be increased to aid and
    abet the activities of other Communist agents throughout the nation in

    The failure of Psychopolitics might well bring about the atomic
    bombing of the Motherland.

    If Psychopolitics succeeds in its mission throughout the Capitalistic
    nations of the world, there will never be an atomic war, for Russia
    will have subjugated all of her enemies.

    Communism has already spread across one-sixth of the inhabited world.
    Marxist Doctrines have already penetrated the remainder. An extension
    of the Communist social order is everywhere victorious. The spread of
    Communism has never been by force of battle, but by conquest of the
    mind. In Psychopolitics we have refined this conquest to its last

    The psychopolitical operative must succeed, for his success means a
    world of Peace. His failure might well mean the destruction of the
    civilized portions of Earth by atomic power in the hands of
    Capitalistic madmen.

    The end thoroughly justifies the means. The degradation of populace is
    less inhuman than their destruction by atomic fission, for to an
    animal who lives only once, any life is sweeter than death.

    The end of war is the control of a conquered people. If a people can
    be conquered in the absence of war, the end of war will have been
    achieved without the destruction of war. A worth goal.

    The psychopolitician has his reward in the nearly unlimited control of
    populace, in the uninhibited exercise of passion, and the glory of
    Communist conquest over the stupidity of the enemies of the People.

                                   THE END
