    Default Communist Party Goals from 1963, they're doing well so far...

    http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm
    Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35
    January 10, 1963

    Current Communist Goals

    EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

    Thursday, January 10, 1963

    Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

    At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

    [From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

    CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist [political?] domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use "united force" to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    I see that now we're digging into the archives of Joe McCarthy's red baiters, except that Cleon Skousen made McCarthy look like a liberal. In case you think this piece has anything to do with Communism, you're wrong. It only has to do with the paranoid ramblings of a man who found it easier to attack things he disliked by trying to link them to a hated group. The goals were never anything except Skousen's own fiction.

    I have read that list in the past. Whether it is a real or stated goal of the/a/or any communist party, who knows.

    But, in the United States today, communism is a valued part of left. The left in the United States actually embrace their ideals and in many cases their positions and beliefs are mainstream democrat thought. They are prominent at virtually all rallies that the left organizes for their “causes.”

    So remember, in the United States today democrats view republicans with distain and embrace the communist party as soul mates.

    In what way do you disagree with the proposition that the democrats are closer to communists than republicans, philosophically and view republicans with disdain while embracing communists as soul mates?

    Think Hugo Chaves, he is fully embraced by the left. It is a right of passage for the spokes persons of the left especially the mouthpieces in Hollywood to have their picture taken with him. He is taking over industries like oil and now food. obama is leaning towards taking over banks and the auto industry.

    Where is the appreciable difference in their positions? One is a communist elected dictator, the other is a socialist elected by the democrat party.

    An article calling on obama the join the socialist movement. In case chavez isn't paying attention, he already is.

    Do you believe that the reasons for Chaves' and Obama's actions are the same? I'm talking both motivation AND end result.

    If BHO doesn't lead the way in getting the economy back on track, he's not going to have a country to lead anymore....

    No, I don’t. One is trying to take over and be a ruling dictator. The other is attempting to impart a socialist agenda under the guise of saving industry. But, they are both taking industry or imparting onerous control over industry using socialist reasoning for their taking. They are gearing that reasoning to their audience (How do you sell Coca-Cola in the United States and Venezuela?). The result is or will be the same; Government control of industries that were previously free market enterprises.

    Your logic is comparable to my saying that Republicans have embraced the KKK as an inherent component of their Southern Strategy since Reagan and that therefore Republicans are leading us towards a KKK dominated country where slavery will once again be allowed. Mind you, I would never say this because it is idiotic. However, it is at least as rational and as fact based as the hysterical claims that Democrats are embracing socialism and communism and seeking to turn our country into a new communist dictatorship which seems to be the gist of your concerns.

    Personally, I believe our country can live with both the bigotry of the extreme left and the bigotry of the extreme right as long as neither is put in charge. I believe that Republicans have already given too much power to the extreme right and it cost them the election. If Democrats do the same with the extreme left, they will lose the next election.
