In Chou En- ■ lai*9 OY n words: '■\m\ Chou En-lai speaks in English to the foreigners. Bul in fifty to a hundred years, another Chou En-lai will speak in Chinese to the foreign people, because all foreign people will speak and think in Chinese." 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: TERROR, 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 ry. 1956 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. . . . ANTI-COMMUNIST RESISTANCE IN ASIA 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 Communists. 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 being." 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 450.000.watt new Radio Free China. which broadcasts 20 hours daily to the mainland, and for liberation leaflets dropped from airplanes over Red China. It has also served to eliminate Commu- (Continued on faze 41) Page 31 ^ _fs ng r ,
