Transcript the Soviet government, hui because we fear to provoke the Communists by resolute action. This was made clear to mi' in Berlin in February, 1954. Al the beginning of the conference, llianks lo ihe line speeches being made by the representatives of the Western powers, hopes were raised thai al long lasl we were going to stand up lo the See\i,i I nion. I!\ ihe end eef the second week "I the conference, it hail become clear thai lhe Communists had once again succeeded in making us climb down. We agreed to discuss lhe Far East al a news conference in Geneva without any ,//,,,/ pro quo in the shape of concessions on German unification. The slrccls along which the representatives of lhe victorious |n>\\ <-c~ passed in their automobiles cadi day on the way iii the conference were thickly lined with crowds, standing !<>t hours in the bitter col,I in both lhe West and F.asl sectors of lhe city. Every cue I spoke to among those crowds expressed the hope that \merica would show sufficient strength and will to force the Soviel I nion to retreat. But during the lasl ila\> I was there, disillusionment had already set in. Ii was fill that we or our allies hail displayed such a lack e>f [newer and resolution that il was unlikel] thai the Soviet I nion would ever make any concessions. If. al that time, instead of arranging another conference with the Soviets, the Jenner- McCarran resolution had been pas-eel. I am certain that these despairing people' would once again have had ceenfi- dence in us. If the Berliners and East Berliners who arc in the front line of the battle hope that we will nol make concessions to lhe Soviet Union, surely we in the' far rear should nol be- governed lev our fears, or give way In the desire of the Brilisb and lhe French fur peace al any price. It seems in mi' that in spite ol the fad that the Communists and their sympathizers no longer hold important | > • > -1 - in our government ami the press, radio, ami universities ;><■<>|> 1<• with a -"Il attitude toward communism ami. above all. j pie who have no understanding of lhe nature, aims, or methods of communism, slill bold lhe commanding heights in the press, radio, and other media which influence public opinion. "COMMANDING HEIGHTS" VICTORY I use' the words "'commanding heights" because I recall lhat Lenin ii-eel this expression in 1921 when he instituted the New Economic Policy which permitted some private ownership of land and small-scale industry. He then said that, provided the Soviet state continued to own all large-scale industry and the banks, its possession of these "commanding heights" would insure the victory of socialism. So today Page 50 it seems to me the influence in the press and radio of Communisl sympathizers and dupes, and of those who know nothing aboul communism, is slill sufficient, if continued, to insure a Communist victory. So long as those who form public opinion and those who direct our foreign policy hold fallacious opinions as regards tbe nature of communism ami how to combat it, we can have no hope of winning the struggle for the world. We also fac a certain danger from 111<>~«- who say, "A plague em both your houses," anil think thai at this stage ol history we can return to isolationism. It is of vital importance thai we -lniulel dee two things if we are to survive. One is to give moral and material support to our real allies: lhat is In say, to the people who can lie counted upon to slick ley us and fight with us if necessary and not to those who waul to be neutral but whom we hope lo win over to our side by bribes or by following their appeasement policies. Secondly, we must try to keep hopes of liberation alive among the Russians, lhe Chinese, and tbe oilier people under Communist rule. This we can do onlv if we give proof of our own standfast I position to Soviel tyranny and coiivU» them that we shall never again hell' llusor) chi'ian. la* ly it seems J * ""/ " i leaking off of diplomatic I the So\ id government vmm oilier people for our own vantage, as we did al and I',ils,lam.
