Transcript -————- ',. This picture, from an official Chinese Communist news service, was published by "The Daily Worker" in London, with caption: "The first batch of American prisoners marches through the stteets of Pyongyang, principal town in North Korea." ciation of their value to the science of dialectical materialism." The doctor's clinic here becomes the politician's study! Conditioned, in Pavlov's experiments, meant "induced by man, or by outside influences." By unconditioned, he meant "natural," or "in- stinctix e," such as the eye's involuntary blinking when an insect Hies close to it. Conditioned-reflex action can be brought about deliberately; this is what the Communist hierarchy now relies on to make a basic change in human nature, to give birth to the "new Soviet man" in whom the concept of the individual "I" is to be replaced by the "we" of collectivity. In short, the totalitarian State strives toward the insectix i/ation of human beings. The central theme of Pavlov's experiments was indicated by a scene from a documentary film, showing a dog in harness, standing on what looked like an operating table, in a room full of mechanical gadgets and curious meters. What immediately attracted attention was the glass container inserted into the side of the dog's lower jaw. Unsmiling doctors busied themselves with the experiment. One held the bulbous end of a rubber tube. By squeezing it, air pressure moved a circular tray bringing a bowl of food within reach of the harnessed canine. As soon as this happened, a light flashed. The dog hungrily eyed the approaching food; saliva began to drip into the test tube attached to its jaw. Each drop was counted and carefully tabulated on a graph. The dog at first paid no attention to the light. Sometimes the rotary table brought an empty bowl to the dog's mouth, but when that happened the light did not go on ancl there was no saliva. A routine was now established. When the light flashed, food appeared and saliva appeared. When an empty bowl approached, the light did not go on and there was no saliva. After a while, the clog hardly glanced at the bowl. It had identified the light with the food. The light was sufficient sign; it had "learned." The crucial point in the experiment was now reached. A white-gowned doctor pressed a button, the light flashed, but this time the round table did not bring the clog any food. Its saliva dripped just the same. The light had replaced the food in the mind of the dog. the way a slogan or label can replace a thought in a mans mind. The caption read: "He-Hex caused by flashing light." What the Pavlovian doctors had learned from animals could be used to intrude- into the mind anel soul of man, to warp ancl change his brain. Anything could be made into a trigger, or what they called a stimulus. Brain-changing xxas the culmination of this whole evil process, when actual damage was done to a man's mind through drugs, hypnotism, or other means, so that (1) a memory of what had actually happened could be wiped out of his mind, and (2) a new memory of what never j-ing the Korc.

Newly-Devised Torment Applied Marx had expected communism to change human nature. Lenin had found out that it would never happen naturally. He saw in the Pavlovian technique the ferment which could bring it about, despite the opposition it naturally aroused. He told Pavlov that he had "saved the Revolution." Lenin, the practical dictator, betrayed Pavlov. During the last six months of Pavlov's life, the settings were already being planned for the liquidation of all the * his age tt Old Bolsheviks within the Kremlin's reach, except one: His wife Stalin.
