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
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,

| 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«
