Physician Diagnoses Communism
Dr. Fred Sehwsrz is a surgeon and psychiatrist who left his medical practice in Australia to wage ee
one-man war against communism. His Christian Anti-Communism Crusade lias offices ni Waterloo, Iowa.
He is iiiui'li iii demand as a speaker anil his anti-CommunisI pamphlets have sold widely.
The following seleriions are excerpts from The Heart. Mind and Saul of Communism; The Christian
iiisuer to Communism, and The ( ommunist Interpretation of Peace.
The mass-murder program of communism is a logical and inescapable
consequence of their basir beliefs. It is
science in a,'tion. ...
Recently I conversed with two very
well.known men, each of whom had
been a member of the American Communist party for many years. 'If both I
asked the same' question, "What are the
plans of the American Communist party
is ith regard to liquidation in this country?' Both replied in this vein: I often
heard it discussed in party circles. The
argument went like this: The character
disease, is derived from the capitalistic
system. Capitalism in America is more
developed than in any other country.
Therefore its imprint in personality is
deeper, lln- percentage to be liquidated
here will be correspondingly higher, \-
a tentative figure shall we sav aboul
one-third of the American people will be
marked for liquidation. . . .

It is amazing how the delusion lingers
In academic, religious and labor circles
that communism i- merely the revolt of
workers against tyranny. In spite of the
utterly irrefutable evidence to the con-
lr,M\ thi- belief lingers mi. It ignores
utterly the clear truth thai the onl)
countries that have fallen under (a.ni-
munisl domination air those with a
common border with another Communisl country. Since lln- Bolshevik conquest of Itussia no country has spontaneously turned Communisl. Surely the
meanesl intelligence should hr able to
answer these questions: "Is East Germany Communist and West Germany
nun.Communisl because of economic
conditions or because of ihr presence ol
the lied Army einel proximity I,.
Russia?" "Is North Korea Communist
and South Korea non-CommunisI because of economic conditions or because
of the proximity of Russia and Red
China in North Korea?" If the economic
conditions of the whole world vastb im
pro\ed. the Communisl parly would
merely intensify it- efforts lo come to
power. In 1019 the country of Australia
sseis eit the' very pe-eik ,.f prosperity hut
the Communist conspiracy came within
an inch of the conquest of the entire
