This is a great video from an interview Yuri did with Ed Griffin (author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island”) back in the 80’s regarding the methodology the communists use to take over a country.
To summarize, Yuri says the Communist purpose is to prevent people from coming to sensible conclusions about what is happening around them.
The stages of infiltration Bezmenov talks about center around a long term plan that leads to the socialization and eventual takeover of a nation. The four steps he says the Soviets aimed for were:
1) Demoralization-pump Marxism into the heads of children – takes 15-20 years so that that generation become the next teachers – due to lack of moral standards a person is unable to assess true information even when directly presented to this person.
2) Destabilization- 2-5 years – economy, foreign relations, defense systems
3) Crisis-6 weeks, violent change in structure and economy
4) Normalization-Leaders promise a paradise on earth and remove free market economy. Government takeover.
Notice how by teaching kids about Marxism and socialism, and degrading their society, they can’t even see truth when it’s plainly in front of them. The Soviets then work on destabilizing the country to the point that they can trigger a crisis. At that point, the leaders promise they will take care of everything for you and in our ignorant bliss, we accept their offer and wind up with a Communist utopia based on social justice as the Communists view it.
