Transcript I T IS A fact that you can help the cause of enlightened patriotism hy causing wider distribution of Facts Forum News. Two plans are suggested helow: Facts Forum, Dallas, Texas: I would like to send Facts Forum News to my friends. Please- find enclosed $ fur 6-montb subscriptions al the rate of 6 for $5.00. Name . No S Street With my best Irishes to: City Nelllle. Vein,' Name Name Facts Forum, Dallas, Texas: Please send me copies of the Fuels Forum News each month, billed to me at 15^ per copy, until further notice. Fuels Forum \eits may be presented lo callers feu their return trip reading, passed out among friends, kepi in waiting room.-, placed on reading racks, called to the attention of people- who speak and write, or made available In reading clubs and lo libraries. USE OTHER SIDE ALSO up, conceal from them the true facts, and gel litem ready for the Day: and. two. the same media can he used when the Day comes to tell them what to do. ^3. Even if we suppose ;i hypothetical siluation in which through a successful military stroke and seizure of channels of communication, an enemy power was in ei position to lell lhe people of this country what to do. the chances are quite good lhat the people would not do il. Thus lhe winners in ihis kind of blitzkrieg would nol be able to enjoy their victory, unless they had also an organization which they could depend on to persuade lhe majority of the population lhal they oughl to cooperate with lhe new regime. Probably no group of persons in this country could he imagined as having the ability to exert ihis kind of persuasion excepl the preachers and. lo a somewhat lesser extent, public school officials. These are' tlie only persons in the country whom lhe ordinary man mighl conceivably follow even if he elis agreed with them, excepl duly constituted governmenl officials of high rank, who of course under litis hypothesis would either he a Quisling or he liquidated. Thus the infiltration of the churches and school systems, particularly at the top. is of the ulmosl importance to the Communists. Clearly, they have succeeded to sonic extent (we don'l know yel how much) in such infiltration. ♦ 4. Infiltration of military organizations, communications media, churches, and schools requires large numbers nf people, li would he impossible to imagine thai so many people would In- available except for the facl that ever sinie- Wnrltl War I lln- colleges and universities have been turning out a rapidly increasing supply of bright young men and women who have been deeply impressed, consciously and subconsciously, hv the cleiims nf ihe Marxist theory of the economic determination of history lhe "dangers of nationalism," lhe "horror of war." the "dubiousness nf revealed religion." lhe "obligation of governmenl lo provide for the economic welfare of lhe citizens." ami the' "inevitable evolutional-) process of international society toward a socialized one world." The stream of young people so educated has been quite sufficient in color all the organizations previousl) named and to make them vulnerable lo approaches meule' hv agents of the Soviel Union who are actually hardened criminals hui who may seem In ihe miseducated young intellectuals lei In- representatives nf "ihe future." THE COUNTERATTACK Clearly, the over-all, necessary counterattack must, like ihe original Communisl attack, operate al all levels eunl in all organizations previously enumerated. This involves a working alliance between all kinds of American organizations which have in common a semsc of their dependence on, and indebtedness lo. lhe nation in which the) have developed. Many actions will have lo he' taken hv people in government, private industry (including press, radio, etc.), churches and educational institutions, Bul lln- vethu' "f complete and reliable information in all groups and individuals is enormously greal and should be obvious. Unless this occurs, defeat and disaster will most assuredly come about with lhe resulting destruction of the United States. Page 46 FACTS FORUM NEWS, May, '■"'
