    "...please watch the video of Yuri Bezmenov on how Russia subverted Indian system. In fact, it is world know fact now that the India was considered as the best example of successful foreign intrusion at all levels of government and social structure..." So said an angry right-winger to me on my review of Eminent Historians: Their Technology, Their Life, Their Fraud, as he was pissed off with my leftist critique of the book. As I had not heard of this particular gentleman, I did a quick web search - and found that he was a Soviet defector, who worked in India as a propagandist! Needless to say I was thrilled. Here was the real dirt: a shocking expose was on the cards! Here was where I was going to learn how the Russians infiltrated the Indian system at all levels. Most probably, the history textbooks in India would have been practically dictated by the Soviets - I would not have been surprised to learn that Irfan Habib, Romila Thapar, Satish Chandra et al. were on the Russian payroll.The Bezmenov video was dubbed in Hindi, so I was a little bit skeptical about watching it. However, I was fortunate enough to find a copy of the small tract Bezmenov wrote under the pen name Tomas Schuman, on the net. I eagerly plunged into it... and found......well, absolutely nothing.This book is an exhortation by Bezmenov to the American people to realise how Russia is subverting their society through ideas of egalitarianism, secularism and liberalism: how their democratic institutions are being infiltrated by Soviet agents: how public education is creating immoral beatniks and how all media have been hijacked by the reds (in fact, standard GOP fare). If this continues, America will slide into lawlessness which will be exploited by the Soviet Union to create a totalitarian state. Ho-hum. Yawn.And India?Well, Bezmenov keeps on repeating that all these propaganda methods have been tried and proven in India, during his tenure there as a P.R.Officer - without any concrete examples. He talks about bribery, subversion, character assassination, even murder... without a shred of evidence. In a book filled with silly statements, the one that Raj Kapoor was a mediocre actor raised to international fame by Soviet machinations takes the cake!If this is the kind of "evidence" that is being presented in support of their claims, I am not surprised that the right-wingers in India are not able penetrate the intellectual circles. They seem to be on the same level as Ann Coulter and Donald Trump.Some gems from the book (I shall be adding to this):My name is Tomas David Schuman. I am what you may call a "defector" from the USSR, and I have a message for you: I love you very much. I love all of you -liberals and conservatives, "decadent capitalists" and "oppressed masses", blacks and whites and browns and yellows, rednecks and intellectuals. For me you are the people who created a unique nation, country and society in the history of mankind, - by no means a perfect one, but, let's face it - the most free, affluent and just in today's world.This guy is obviously and incarnation of the Buddha or Jesus.I am not alone in this love. People all over the Earth, whether they praise America or bitterly criticize her, look upon you as the only hope for mankind's survival and the last stronghold of freedom. Some may not think in these idealistic terms, but they certainly enjoy the fruits of your civilization, often forgetting to be grateful for them. Millions of people in the so-called "socialist camp" or in the "Third World" literally owe their lives to America.I like that last sentence especially. I am thinking of the thousands in Iraq and Afghanistan, who "owe" their lives to America.It did not take me long to discover that our group was engaged in neither "research" nor "counter-propaganda ": behind locked doors we accumulated intelligence from various sources, including Indian informers and agents, regarding virtually EVERY important and politically significant citizen of India - members of Parliament, civil servicemen, military and public figures, media people, businessmen, university professors, radical or otherwise students and writers - in other words EVERYONE instrumental in shaping the PUBLIC OPINION and policies of the nation. Those who were "friendly" and ready to invite the Soviet expansionist policy into their own country were promoted to higher positions of power, affluence and prestige through various operations by KGB-Novosti. -Large groups, of the so-called "progressive and sober-thinking" Indians were on a regular basis, generously supplied with duty-free booze from the embassy stocks. Soviet sympathizers were invited to the USSR for free tripsand numerous "international conferences" where they not only received substantial sums of money in the form of "literary awards" or "Nehru Peace and Friendship" prizes, but were also medically treated for VD or hernias acquired in the perpetual "class struggle"against "American imperialism". Those who refused to be "flexible" and take a voluntary role in this cruel farce were thoroughly character-assassinated in the sensation-hungry media and press.So virtually, the Indian Government was run by the Soviet Union. So isn't it surprising that the Communist Party of India could make inroads into only 3 states?16/03/2016Following our Pedro's enthusiastic promotion of this book, I thought I will share a few more nuggets of wisdom from Bezmenov.The result of the demoralization of religion is a phenomenon referred to as the "death wish". This expression is borrowed from a book by a Soviet dissident writer, Igor Shafarevich, titled "Socialism as a Historical Phenomenon". (YMCA Press, Paris, 1977) Dr. Shafarevich in analyzing the 'dead' civilizations of Egypt, Maya, Mohenjo-Dara, Babylon, etc., comes to an ominous conclusion: EVERY ONE OF THESE CIVILIZATIONS DIED WHEN PEOPLE REJECTED RELIGION AND GOD, AND TRIED TO CREATE 'SOCIAL JUSTICE' ALONG THE SOCIALIST PRINCIPLES. Thus, Socialism, according to Shafarevich, may be a manifestation of an inborn human instinct of SELF-DESTRUCTION, if unrestrained -leading ultimately to PHYSICAL DEATH OF ALL MANKIND.Dr. Shafarevich seems to be another gentleman with interesting ideas, and a lot of knowledge to which professional historians are not privy. According to history, the Mayan civilisation was destroyed by Spanish invaders - an idea which he refutes. And he has even discovered the reason for the collapse of the Indus Valley Civilisation!---------------------------Another gem...Yes, KGB encourages DEMORALIZATION of America through the 'mass culture' by relying upon the help of the "useful idiots" of the entertainment business. No, the Beatles, Punksand Michael Jackson are not on the KGB payroll. They are on YOUR payroll. All the KGB had to do is to slowly and gradually CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDES and kill your RESISTANCE to the demoralizing addiction your kids call 'music', make it acceptable, NORMAL; make it a part of 'American culture' where it does not belong and never did.---------------------------Now let's look at how you treat your military. What is the image of the military presented to you and the rest of the world in the American press and the electronic media? If there is a U.S. general, he is called a trigger-happy 'warmonger', a 'hawk' and 'aggressor'. One of the most popular TV series - M.A.S.H. - presents your military as a bunch of very humorous, hysterically funny bunch of psychotics, queers, alcoholics and otherwise rather unruly characters. Recently I saw a film titled "Rage", where the Pentagon is depicted as a cruel experimentor, testing chemical weapons on unsuspecting American farmers. And it is shown on TV exactly at the very same time when Soviets are using chemical weapons in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Laos, and provide the same to their Iraqi 'brothers' for their fraternal genocide in Persian Gulf. Have you EVER seen a movie or a TV series about THAT? Every American student knows the name of the Vietnamese village Mi-Lai and what it stands for, namely,' an "American war crime. " Do you remember the name of the Soviet pilot who shot down the Korean passenger airliner with 269 passengers aboard, including some 60 Americans and a US senator? Do you remember the name of that senator? Does anybody in America EVER learn from American media the names of thousands of Cambodian and Afghani villages TOTALLY EXTERMINATED by the Soviet military?He is writing this before Dubya jumped into Afghanistan and Iraq, so he can be forgiven to a certain extent. But he obviously has not seen the Rambo series.---------------------------And what do you know? Even McDonald's and KFC are in the pay of the KGB!Demoralization in the area of food CONSU MPTION patterns is also effective in the introduction of such things as 'junk foods'. No, KGB agents do not put chemicals into American food and drink. It is done by some American mega-monopolies who operate along the same principles as Soviet 'Obshchepit' (Public Food Service): they look at consumers as 'units of consumers', not individuals. Abolishing freely competing SMALL food companies, who HAD TOTREAT YOU INDIVIDUALLY to survive economically, these giants of indigestion artificially CREATE consumers' tastes and demands which may not be in the interests of your health but surely in the interests of the monopoly profit. And here I tend to agree, at least in part, with America's ralph-naders, and consumer protection groups, although I do not share their ideas on the solution of theproblem.---------------------------Well, friends! Even the UN General Assembly is under Soviet Control.The average American may not even realize that the 'International Court' is nothing but an artificial creature of the Soviet-controlled General Assembly of the UN.---------------------------Now I get where Pedro is coming from! Having subverted the whole of the world including McDonald's and the UN General Assembly, the Soviet Union dissolved itself to allay suspicion! Since the whole world is now clandestinely controlled by communists, they do not require a particular country any more.Being a leftist liberal who is one of the (unknowing) Soviet minions (according to Bezmenov), I can expect to be liquidated or moved into a concentration camp the moment the communist takeover is final. So till ten: Red Salute, Comrades!!!16/02/2017Pedro, I apologise. Whatever you said is correct. Destabilisation, and subsequent takeover of the USA by Russia is imminent.

    Love Letter to America is an underrated book in contemporary history. The most astonishing aspect of this book is the fact that it indirectly predicted Brazil's future - from the lack of temperance to the domination of academic circles by the far left. Even though this book was directly aimed at Americans, I completely recommend anyone to read it. To better understand Schuman, I would advise reading Clausewitz and Sun Tsu, but if you don't have time and you just want to have a contextual understanding my advice would be reading this book:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6...Schuman only points out the process needed to install or to reinforce an age of decadence into a country, while Glubb does the historical investigation to understand the phenomenology of the age of decadence.

    Step by step overtake by communism in the road to ideology subversion, or distortion of the perception of reality: Demoralization, Destabilization, Crisis, Normalization.

    This is 'letter' to Americans, but has all the examples from the authors work experience in India. So a must read for any Indian. Just so that we know how the cold war powers have screwed with India

    Par Tomasu Šūmani jeb īstajā vārdā Juriju Bezmenovu, KGB virsnieku, kas 1970.gadā aizbēga no PSRS, uzzināju pavisam nejauši, un noklausoties viņa 1984.gadā sniegto interviju (pieejama https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3qkf...), skaidra lieta, ieinteresējos. ASV vairs it kā nebūtu jābaidās no komunisma ienākšanas tajās, taču visus šos gadu desmitus Krievijas kā PSRS mantinieces metodes nav mainījušās, mainījies tikai mērķis. Un ir ārkārtīgi pārsteidzoši par to klausīties runājam un rakstām jau astoņdesmitajos.Šis buklets apkopo daļu T.Šūmaņa izteikto brīdinājumu attiecībā uz PSRS izmantotajām metodēm, taču es rekomendētu viņa viedokļa iepazīšanu iesākt ar augstāk minēto interviju un turpināt ar T.Šūmaņa vadītās lekcijas noskatīšanos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlg4B...). T.Šūmani ir interesanti klausīties (viņam arī amata pienākumus pildot bija jābūt pietiekami patīkamam), un vismaz man video sniedz pilnīgāku priekšstatu un vielu pārdomām, nekā rakstītais vārds, kas koncentrētā veidā satur faktiski to pašu informāciju.
