Transcript msm« 1 to in Russia. Those are on a leash. Their tongues are tied. They are slaves of a tyranny which has murdered tens of thousands of Russian churchmen and will do this again when it suits their purpose. There are a great many fallacies current concerning the proper course to defeat the purposes of the Soviet government. Too often we are told that we must make this country the perfect society before we can hope to influence peoples abroad and arrest the march of the Kremlin camarilla. Where is there another country which has taken into her family tens of millions of men and women from every corner of the globe and given to them an opportunity to share in the greatest abundance, in the highest standard of living, in the greatest free institutions to develop themselves in freedom? Can we talk of competition with the Soviet slave system? And if our examples of unselfishness to people all over the world, when famine strikes them, when earthquakes shake them, when floods wash their homes and crops away, has not taught them what the character of America really is, then, my friends, we had better abandon the ungrateful nations and attend to our own knitting. Wet Nurse of the World Think what this country could have been today if a mere twenty per cent of the tens of billions of dollars we have poured into foreign lands had been used for our own! Why must we be the wet nurse of the world? Why can't we help those who help themselves? Why must we help governments which have neither the brains nor the courage to destroy their powerful Communist nests in the service of our common enemy? Why shouldn't they come here with hat in hand, with plans worked out, and hire our technicians and industrial experts if they really want to raise the standard of living of their masses? Our helpfulness has not been appreciated because we have acted as though we could not survive as a nation unless they did us the favor of relieving our hard-working people ot their sweat and toil. The time is long past for us to keep the gates of our country wide open to every comer. It is next to impossible now- to screen the millions who would want to come here. When Stalin wanted to kill General Krivitsky, they reached out for him in a Washington hotel. When they w anted to murder Page 52 Trotsky, Mexico City was not too distant for them. Their agents are already roaming the country at will, and most of them arc so-called Americans vvho came here without a shirt on their backs, took all we had to offer, anel founded the Communist Party to destroy thc freedoms of their benefactor and host. Statesmen must think for the- centuries. Even if they think in generations, they should realize- that with the population pressure we are now experiencing we will have standing room only in this country within a century. Our birth rate has risen from 16 to 25 per thousand in a sheirt period of time, and is still rising. We must provide for tbe millions yet unborn anel not make this tbe dumping ground for all coiners. There are still other lands with more territory and more natural resources to populate. Let Russia open its doors to millions of immigrants. And since she claims to be the- friend of the downtrodden, let her live up to her pretensions. Rut. of course, she will not. Her entire philosophy is based on falsehood. She is not interested in bettering tlie- conditions of her own people, so how can any sane- person expect her to worry about the fate of Others? Her goal is world Stal- inization. Ob. sure. Khrushchev would not like to be- ealle-el a Stalinist, even though lor thirty years he has been shouting friini the housetops his 10(1 per cent loyalty In the leader he- now calls an arch-murderer. Rut the- men- passing of Stalin has not brought an end to Stalinism, ft will never end as long as his disciples live. The Unmelred Pot Testifying some years ago before a Judiciary Subcommittee of the Sen ate, the l*. S. Attorney General stated that of 4980 militant subversives no less than 91.4 per cent were- of foreign origin or married to former immigrants. Tin- Communist movement was created by my fellow ex-immigrants in their ungrateful appreciation of what this country has clone for them. The- time has therefore come i<> give, the melting pot a better chance to melt what it already lias taken in. In a recent issue of the \'ctc York Times- Sunday Magazine, Professor Murrav P. Horwood of tin- Massachusetts Institute of Technology, wrote: The question confronting America today is whether sin- is willing to undertake ami underwrite tin- development of backward areas lor perhaps several centuries in order to be-s-iii to make some permanent progress. This continent, too, was once underdeveloped and a backward area. Did anyone help us by pouring out their wealth and their scientific knowledge to bring about the "permanent progress" we have-'-' Our help i.s anel should be accessible to all except the Communist gangsters. Rut it should not be at the expense nl the American taxpayers. Thev who need our help should pay for it with toil and sweat as we have done- anel are doing today. As long as France is the recipient of °ur charity, she has no right to close her factories down for long vacations. The same holds true of all others. Shutting our immigration gates for twenty to twenty-five years is today a prime necessity lor ibis country. The men and women of foreign lands should exert themselves a bit more to raise their own standard of living and not seek the easiest way out. They owe a duty to their country. Besides, it is high time- to create a more homogeneous community to help lessen the crime waves, the delinquency waves, and tbe heavy tax burdens afflicting our people-. Have Faith in Russian Peoples In conclusion I urge you to have faith in the- Russian peoples. Their greatest yearning is FREEDOM, not luxuries. To attain ibis they are willing tn eat black bread and potatoes and not steaks: lo fight and die. if need be. They who have known slavery, hunger, disease, slave- labor camps, Oppression, and brutality under socialism. Stalinism, know better than w hen- tbe price of liberty. There is an old Russian adage! "Happy is the bird in the golden cag*-j but happier still on the green twig- The Khrushchevs and Bulganins can never make the- Russian people f°r« what Stalinism-communism has don to tliem. Neither can thev forgive them. No rise iii the standard of Hvj-08 will ever blot out from their meinori-* the suffering of at least ninety per ceI1 of the people. The fervent hope is that the Christians of America u ill not forsake then1' will not aid their enemy, will standjoy lliiiii in spirit and belief that with » little- effort on our part we can »"* them In perform the surgical °?era' tion upon their cruel Stalinists w ,, will rill them and the rest of the work1 of thc Lenin-Trotsky-Stalin nigh1" mare. &° Facts Forum News, December, 19-3
