CTS FORUM NEWS, February, 1955 Q. How do we do this? A. The heart of it is that to do it. you've got to get to the young people. They have to feel lhat there's something worth fighting for — for themselves. We must have men and women who are willing to sacrifice. Q. Would you say that young people, as well as all other people in the country, have to take more interest in America as Americans and to develop more of a patriotic spirit? A. Yes, they must come to love this country as did the people who established it, as the Pilgrims who went on their knees and thanked God for coming here. Q. What about a certain school of thought in this country lhat reviles anyone who is considered a patriot by calling him "200 per cent American." "super- bigot," "flag waver," and such? COMMUNISTS SMEAR PATRIOTS V The Communists have done very well in smearing the word "patriot." They've done very well in destroying the man who is religious, the man who is ethical, the man who is patriotic. But whal we've got to do is re-establish the very natural—it's natural for a person In love his country just as it's natural for a person to revere his God. We've got to re-establish this, and we've got to do it Step 1»Y slep and house liv house and street by street. It's not going to be ilemc in Congress; it's not going to be done overseas, and it's not going to be eleuic ei'ilaiiilv eil Ihe 1 nited \alions — it's done in lhe home. Q. There's some small indication of young people in lhe colleges returning to it by themselves. Do you see any real signs of this? A. I see it not so much in the colleges of America as I see it in the homes of America. I see- fathers and mothers, for instance, in lhe Middle West, in the South, in New England, beginning to call a halt to this easygoing philosophy that everything in the past is bad and everything in the future is going to be corrected by a big super-state government. And this is being transmitted to their children. Now the fight is an uphill fight because when they get into some of these college classes where the teachers have already been indoctrinated in this pro- Communist philosophy, are unthinkingly unaware of what they're doing, these students who are being taught by their parents will not be easily misled. I go back lo that, the questions of the rehabilitation of the American home as the unit for the love of one's country and for the dependence upon one's God. I want to point out the importance of youth in this whole fight. The older people have been misled. Because of the depression, the war situations, they have tended to look to government for the answer to all of their problems. We need to reassert the individual — individual responsibility.
