When they come for you to give you the treatment, with vour Family, of course, thai they hen i' so graciously given lo millions on the face of the earth, you can comfort Mini-elf with the thought thai you're dying in the interesl of the scientific perfection of the human race. You mav find thai some comfort, bul personally I find ii none' whatever. Communism is the literal Fulfillmenl of Psalm 14. The fool that said in his heart, "there is no God." and emerging From llu- tainted source of godlessness etnd scientific materialism, the exterminating avalanche of communism is sweeping lhe earth. In the last analysis, communism originates in three things: ill materialistic philosophy; (2) scientific technique; and I li religious Fanatacism. 11 must "Communism il nol arise where there i- poverty.

In n country like ours, where it is impossible, given Unsocial structure, to have a mass Communisl movement, the intellectual becomes extremely importanl as a means oi spreading the peirty line. •. • Whal it comes down to is the need to sel up echo chambers around the eountry, so thai certain notions can enter general filr- rciic\." —Daniel Hell in Jewish Labor Committee Outlook (Autumn 1954).
