have' overlooked, il they read ii al all,
certain remarks that are contained in
his book, on which the Court mainly
bases its decision. Myrdal slated that
the Constitution of the I nited States
weis "impractical and unsuited to modern conditions" and its adoption was
"nearly a plot against the common people." This is purely Communist propaganda, which was cited by the Supreme
Court, and on which the Chief Justice
of the United Stales based a very far-
reaching decision looking to the destruction of our form of government. I have
often wondered what was the source ol
iln' pro-Communist influence in the Supreme Court.
Myrdal -bows that he diel mil write
thi- I. Inn page book himself, lb' hedged
himself aboul with many self-imposed
restrictions anil "value' premises," so
that the book ha.- no scientific validity,
cither from the standpoint of biology,
sociology. "i psychology .
THE COOPERATIVE SOCIAL EXPERTS
Myrdal shows lhal bis book was the
weerk of several so-called social experts
furnished him by the Carnegie Foundation, nf Alger Hiss fame. Il woulel
be more in keeping with the facts, il.
when Myrdal gave the name- of mosl
of these Carnegie Foundation "social
experts," he had said lhal they were
taken right out of lists of members of
Communisl and subversive organizations
dedicated to the overthrow of our Constitution and the I nited state- government, because that is the actual fact.
If Chief Justice Warren had only lak-
en the time and trouble to refresh his
memory from his own state's officially
printed reports and records of hi- own
administration as governor of his own
state, In' would have found, and be can
slill find, the names of these Myrdal
"social experts" in the fourth report on
un-American activities in California,
1948, and the sixth reporl published in
1951 on Communist-fronl organizations
by the Joint Fact-Finding Committee to
the 1948 and 1951 regular California
Legislatures, when the Chief Justice was
governor of the State of California.

I shall give sixteen names furnished
l.v the Carnegie Foundation as "social
experts" to Gunnar Myrdal, the Swedish
"social engineer," for the writing of In
Imeriiaii Dilemma adopted in full by
tin- Court and their Communisl connections according to the official 1948
California report, made eil lln- time the
Chief Justice was governor of California.
I he tenor of thai book is to the effeel
that the American form of governmenl
has outlived il- usefulness, and thai the
Constitution of the I nited States i- a
plot against the common people of this
country. That was the message of the
principal authority relied on bv the
Chief Justice of the I nited States in
ibis far-reaching decision.
