Transcript Communism and Intellectuals (('.intitnid from Page 5) Smoot: How do they answer iheil one? Schwarz: They have the answer reaiK to the tip of their tongues. It is "ne word: and thai word is science'. W: eire' seteniis|s. Scifnce has remade lhe material world. Science has remade die world of agriculture. Science has remade the world of animal husbandry. \nd we're going to use science to remake mankind itself." Ihis also sounds good until lhe detail of this scientific process is revealed. Hie Communists say. "We eire' logical men. Science must operate in accordance wilh scientific laws, and these are the laws hv which we musl operate: "Law No. 1 : Then' is no Coil.' Tin' Communists are proudly, unashamedly atheists in theory and in practice. Thev make no secrel of ihis. fine elireci quote should suffice'. I have here ei hoeik entitled Religion, by one Communisl who never took refuge under tlie Fifth Amendment: V. I. Lenin. The opening sentence is all lhat is necessary. " Vtheism is a natural and inseparable pari of Marxism, of the theory and practice of scientific socialism." \\ he ti they deny God, they simultaneous!) deny every value thai orit.'- "leitcs with God. They deny moral law. •he Ten Commandments, absolute standards ol righl emd wrong, truth etnd '■rror. Thev destroy a whole' civilization eiml culture. Mem is lefi mt the play- 'Bg fiehls of the universe withoul an Umpire withoul ;t book of rules—so '''at lln- winning side can make up the files ets they go along. I he second law of communism con- '"itis the nature of man. Whal is man? "hence does he come'.'' Whither is he Koing? \\'|,y js he here? What significance heis life, death, love, hale. joy. ■"iiia.w ? what is man? Communism answers: Man is et material machine. Mem is '""Her in motion, and nothing more. .'Ian is a body. Within this body there ls a stomach secreting gastric juice. a liver secreting bile, a brain secreting '"'"lion and thought. Man has no -oul. "° spirit, no significanl individual J'alue. no continuity of life. Man is a 1'i'eisl." Smoot: Man is [hen, is the essence 'Osophy? s' 11w mi/: Yes! I 'U|iaiieetl. dogmatic, '311 ,■ "Uls| an animal! That, eif Communis! phi- who ■ Communists eire consistent Darwin- iilulionists. The three people who d Karl Marx wen' Hegel, leiiiL'hl Ihi ell lli'i'tle I : lie I bach, who tetiiL'ht him materialism; and Darwin, who leiiiL'hl him evolution. Communists believe that mankind can be reformed in exactly the same wa) eis any other portion "I lhe animal king- elotii. and litis is the key lo their program for perfection of the human race. Vi illiani '/.. Foster, Chairman of the American Communisl parly, frankly expounds this in his hook. The Twilight ol World Capitalism, published in 191-9. lhe culminating chapter is entitled. "The Advenl of So-ialisl Mem." II,' writes: "Bul the biggesl of eill tasks lo improve the physical well-being of humanity emd thereby the' broadening of lhe betse for its freedom is io improve lhe human species itself in an evolu- tionary sense. The law of natural selection, which littill lhe marvelous complexities of planl and animal species. no longer eettt work spontaneously. Now the evolution of the human speeie-s musl he eleeiie' artificially by lhe conscious action nf nteiii himself."' Smoot: Men. then, an- to he made over, not in the image of God, but in the image ol some Socialisl phut? Schwarz: Exactly! \ momenl of intelligent contemplation ol the Communists* artificial^ directing the evolution of the human species w ill conjure up terrifying visions. The third law of communism concerns lhe origin of human intelligence, per sonality, character, and culture. Karl Marx taught, ami lhe Communists have Fanatically promulgated, ihe doctrine eif economic determinism. This simply means lhal the qualities of em individual, the ideas of bis mind, the emotions of bis heart, lhe very love a mother bears to the children of her own body, the devotion of ei citizen to his country, einel the' adoration of ;t worshiper of bis God, are merely lhe projections into consciousness of the external economic environment. The name given to this doctrine is "economic determinism.' .And upon these three basic laws atheism, evolutionary materialism, and economic determinism the entire Communist program for remaking mankind is built. Since many individuals inhabit the same economic environment, they develop the same type' of ideas, characters, .mil personalities, constituting themselves an economic eleiss. This leads to the Metrxisl concept of Ihe class structure of society, lhe class weir, the triumph of llie proletarian class, ami the emergence of the classless society. The /.«» ^ACTS FORUM NKWS, June, 1955 —Wide World Photo William Z. Foster Communists believe the class of the future- is what thev call the proletarian class. \ll other classes must simply be exterminated. "*i on sav to the Communists, "You in- human monsters! You mean you'd miu- der millions of people in cold blood?" They setv. "\\ hal do vou mean, niur- der? Thai's a bourgeois term. You mean kill them? Why, don't be childish. Of course we would! Why. nature's been killing people l»\ the countless millions for millions of years killing lln-iii by hunger, by famine, by war. by disease, by old age killing them for no purpose. Ami if we hesitate to do that which is scientifically necessary to fulfill our destiny ami re-create mankind, how unworthy of lhe trust history has imposed on us we would be. We're onlv animals. Where'd vou gel the idea tun were important? That's merely the ■subjective projection in consciousness ol your favored economic environment. As Lenin said, 'What's it matter if three- quarlers of tbe world perish, provided tin- remaining quarter is Communist?' "Tbe human species is very fertile. Vent can easily gel plenty more. Put on a competition, breeding them up one a year. What's all the fuss about?" Smoot: People who believe such things think they can create et Sen-ialisi society which will be perfect? Se HWARZ: They think theit way. They .nl thai way. They Ireal their own ilieil way. And they're endeavoring to come ihis way to treat us and those we love thai way. Once you deny Coil: once you deny tlle special creation of man; once you deny the love of God, you're naked eiml defenseless before lhe' logic of the Communisl argument. lo bring lhe matter close home, there is very good evidence to believe theit the Communist party believes it will be necessary to exterminate al least one third of the American people afler theii Page 59
