Here is the true disciple of Lenin,
en Ham ing his countrymen's nationalisl
emotions to advance the cause of world
communism. There is nothing differenl
nor indigenous aboul Asiatic communism. It was manufactured in Moscow.
For the past twenty to thirty years.
the men in the Kremlin have been selecting, training, and financing Asiatic
Communist leaders, of whom thc most
outstanding today are Mao Tse-tung.
Chou En-lai, and Ho Chi Minh.
The Kremlin continues to finance
lliem heavily for psychological warfare
hut never gives them quite enough for
their industrial needs, in order lo keep
them in line. Moscow is the brains and
the boss, the director of global strategy.
Communism in Asia follows the same
basic blueprint as elsewhere. Because
conditions arc so ripe For exploitation,
it moves faster. In Red China, the base
of Asiatic operations, the political climate todav is similar to that in the
Soviet 1'nion in 1934-36. People of
thirty years and over are generally disillusioned. Hut to the younger genera-
lion, communism is still the dynamic
foree of the future. Already il lias made
their country a power to be reckoned
with internalionalh therefore all mean-
are worthy to achieve the glorious tomorrow. These means follow the ruthless Communist pattern:
To young Chinese in their teens, the
exaggerated importance accorded them
usually overcomes anv inner conflict.
The mayor of one Red Chinese city, for
example, is only twenty years old. Bul
not all young Chinese take to communism. From childhood the Chinese are so
deeply ingrained with tradition, family
loyalty and filial respect, thai the wrench
from ibis ancient culture to lhe Communist code of disrespect, deceit and betrayal is so great that some young people
are driven to suicide or insanity. I hese
are considered expendable by the Communisl leaders, who are reaching inlo
the earlier years to begin the hardening
process forcing kindergartners to witness bloody executions, etc.
WAR AGAINST PEASANTRY
In addition to their frantic efforts to
win Chinese youth, the Communist partv
is now engaged in a relentless war
against the peasantry. Terror tactics followed the Communist process of insinuating themselves into the life of the people. Terror is now open and widespread
throughout the rural sections. The Red
Chinese use a simple method to solve
the land problem the) shool all owners
of 25 or more acres. This land is ostensibly turned over lo the peasants, who
soon learn, however, that il belongs to
the state. Collectivization- from the firsl
razing of individual plots into one large
communal acreage outrages the Chinese tradition of personally cherished
land. This brings protests that produce
swift reprisals. Such is often the case
in other violations of Chinese traditions.
In the cities, merchants and business
men are blackmailed of money and possessions, and then often killed. Anti-
Communist leaders are hunted relentlessly murdered if necessary, puhlicK
executed whenever possible. Torture i-
physical or psychological, or a combination, depending upon the victim and
the purpose. .Army and internal security
forces are very large. . . .
I he majority of neutral Asians tend
to consider communism the progressive
force. Anti-communism is associated
with the West, and therefore considered
reactionary. Onlv recently has actual
Asiatic experience with the totalitarian
methods of world communism begun to
strip away the mask of progressive nationalism so cleverly assumed by the
Interviews with escapees and refugees
from Communist-controlled countries reveal that, once the true nature of eommunism is understood, resistance to it is
basic in the moral fibre of the Asian.
The hundreds of thousands of refugees
in South \ ietnam, the thousands who
escape al great peril from Red China lo
Hong Kong and Formosa, all bear this
Out. From the educated former Red
Chinese diplomat to the illiterate, impoverished \ ietnamese peasant, lhe
reason for resistance is staled simply:
"I am a human being- but under
communism, one cannot be a human
This fact was first realized bv the
Chinese, whose free governmenl on Formosa is the rallying point lor anti-Communist resistance in tsia. Here the Chinese Nationalist governmenl is setting a
positive example, not onlv by intensified
political warfare against the Communist
mainland—but also bv its energetic job
of "cleaning its own house." Corruption
in government is reported t obe practically non-existent on Formosa. President
Chiang Kai-shek's enlightened land reforms have won the complete loyalty of
the peasants. This provides strong
propaganda material for the powerful
