Communist goals of 1963

In 1963, the Congressional Record listed "Current Communist Goals."

Some are now outdated but a few are quite interesting. For example:

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

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.

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.

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.

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."

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

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

I don't think there is some kind of hidden Communist conspiracy going on, but the Left has certainly been successful in gaining control of the schools, the labor unions, the press, TV and Hollywood.

The Left has been enormously successful in undermining the Constitution—from Congresspersons who outright ignore it, to Supreme Court justices who treat it as a "living breathing document" arguing that it is old fashioned and out of step with current needs.

The Left, largely through the ACLU, has been very successful in weakening American institutions like the family, and snuffing out all religion from public schools, courthouses, and town squares under the guise of "separation of church and state."

The Left has long fought for nuclear disarmament of the U.S.

The Left has been enormously successful in promoting homosexual sex and immorality, and indeed, making it an accepted part of "normal" American life.

The Left never misses an opportunity to discredit and disparage the United States, though they rarely criticize ruthless dictators and tyrants.

Nikita Khruschev would have been pleased.
