Behind the Sovie

"The current confusion in the world situation can
lie clarified only hy an honest appraisal of the fundamental issues. This is not an easy nor a pleasant task.
Hut it must be done or the free world is likely lo
sell its birthright for "a mess of pottage.'
"The West is weary, ready to buy the delusion of
present peace at the price of the future. One-third of
the world has already been enslaved by this ruse. It
can happen here." So says V. N. I! in I'm. Co-Director
of the Political Research Project.*
Following is a portion of Mr. Henliif- report on
global strategy. This report is based on information
gained in recent months from exclusive interviews,
informed observers on both sides of the Iron Curtain, and persons active in countering the Intensified
communistic underground warfare, with the desire
that it will help to reveal the Communist pattern now
operating on a world-wide scale.
THE basic pattern of Communist strategy—introduced
bv \leer\. blueprinted by Lenin, implemented by Stalin
remains the seunc whether tbe teirget i- ei club, ee
leibor union, a political peirty. a nation, or tbe world, ll can
la' summed up in three words:
NEUTRALIZE- INFILTRATE ENGULF.
The "new atmosphere of cordiality" shrewdly developed
by the Kremlin in recent months can be understood onlv
in terms ol that strategy. It is merely a new laclic, used
repeatedly in lhe past. Now as then, tbe Communist strategy
i- unchanged. Threatened on two fronts by its enslaved
subjects and by tbe free world the Soviet regime is trying
desperately to "neutralize" the increasingly effective politico!
counter-offensive oj the ll est. in order lo concentrate on the
growing internal opposition.
The most serious ibn-eii lee world communism today i-
the rising resistance oj thr Russian und oiher enslaved
peoples. By dramatizing friendly relations with American
and other Western statesmen, the Kremlin is in effeel telling
its oppressed peoples: "Abandon all hope of su|i|.eert from
the free world in your struggle for self-liberation. Their
