Transcript by Medford Evans 1 2 3 4 5 6 the INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST CONSPIRACY Communism is making a bid for total world power. It has several co-ordinated parallel lines of attack on all pre-existing institutions of effective government. The main effort now is directed against the United States. This effort has already resulted in the firm establishment of beachheads in various key institutions and organizations in the country. From these the future expansion of Communist power can be anticipated as almost routine. It is therefore necessary to counterattack, in force, and as swiftly as is consistent with the security and success of the counterattacking organiiation. LEVELS OF CONFLICT Wc an- in conflict with communism on several differenl levels its follows: ♦ 1. The mosl fundamental is the religious level. Basically, the question is whether as men and women we will worship. obey and be judged hv God, our Creator, accept the redemption of Jesus Christ, the Savior, and operate through the comforting power of the Holy Spirit, or whether we will deify mankind collectively and worship human progress as an end (unending) in itself. Because the Communists do, in effect, deify mankind collectively, they have no reluctance to sacrifice a percentage- of the total population withoul regard In the interest of the individual hearts and souls involved, since they do nol believe the soul exists em.I are quite sure that no individual hearl will, in lhe scale nf history, heat very long anyhow. This religious conflict is the must fundamental and musl he carried mi by us mi a permanent basis and in such a way as: first, to reach the greatest number possible of individual persons: and. second, lo keep lhe doors of national and international socictv as wide open as possible lee eill who would preen It eunl teach the Gospel. | 2. Perhaps lhe best publicized level of conflict with communism is the economic level. Indeed, many people' think that the essential question is a choice between an economic system of free enterprise ami an economic system of so-called "planning." It is true that the economic question is of enormous importance. However, it is Marxist doctrine to hold theti the economic question is primary; thus anyone who makes the assumption lhat the basic questions concern the machinery and processes nf production has already yielded lei the Communists their main point. Tu show how successful they have been in ihe peist century, we have only lo consider the widespread acceptance nf th'' theory of collectivisl planned economy hv many professors, students, journalists, preachers, and businessmen who certainly have no intention of being or becoming Communists, nr sympathetic tu communism. Yel apparently without being aware of it. they have Iel the Communisl camel get its head in the lent of their own minds. The conflict on the economic level, like lhe one on lhe religious level, requires a ceaseless program nf study and education eunl. specifically, uf advertising the merits nf lhe free enterprise system, ami warning against the dangers lo sound economic operation of creeping socialism as well eis nf revolutionary communism. > 3. The third level of conflict, lhe political, is obviously closely related in lhe economic level, precisely because it is ihe intention of Communists, as well eis eel" other varieties of Marxists, thai all the economic machinery shall he controlled by the top political organization, and because they have already succeeded to an alarming extent in developing political control of economic affairs. The- political level l« distinguishable frnm the economic level in part hv the feu' lhal activities here may move much faster than nn the economic level.
