Transcript lets Hyde ever wee- ei "real Communist; and certain!) in the cases ol Chambers, Bentlev ami Massing, the) were either liars, immoral or insane. Thev cannot bring themselves to believe' thai a nice man like Hiss ever could have been a Communist. Thus, if communism appeals only to a few, il cannot be considered ei- an im- porlanl threat from w ithin. To summarize, man) British and Continental teachers and intellectuals view communism as a social theory that need nol cause alarm. It is a matter of polities: it- throat has been greatly exaggerated; eunl since ii has ■uily limited appeal, ii will not gain man) adherents. The scb,,,,l should remain neutral. Communists should be permitted lo leach. Restrictive measures woulel have- dangerous consequences. AN ENGLISH REVIEW OF CHAMBERS' "WITNESS" Those who might like to b-sl the validity of the above analysis might find inter,'.linn reel,ling iii a review "I Whil- taker Chambers' "Witness" which appeared in the New Statesman and Va- linn. I.on,Ion. on Julv 19, 1952. I be writer of this review obviousl) holds the same attitude towards communism thai I have' detected in many teachers both in Greal Britain and on the Continent. . . . Careful reading ol the rev lew in lull will reveal how completely ii has accepted the three basic assumptions outlined above. To the English reviewer Chambers is queer, untrustworthy, prob- eiblv unbalanced, hence not to be believed; Communist infiltration and influence has been wildly exaggerated hence nol important; and the Commu- isi attack will be settled as ei political matter al the polls: hence, nothing to worrv about. IN AMERICA Iii contrast with the three assumptions frequentl) made bv Europeans regarding communism which vve discussed, Vmericans are coming t" lake a complete^ different point of view. The) eon aider communism nol a political parly, but rather ei philosophy, a religion, a Heev of life, not onlv different, but ac- tivel) hostile. Th>-v believe theit communism in the I .S.S.R. is a threat to free institutions. \niong lhe ranks ,,| Com munists, thev have come I" find not onlv 'In- sea'elv. lln- e-nv inlls. eiml the haters; '•lit also "people like vmi eunl nn-: people iii,ui- idealistic eiml more willing to sacrifice: i I i lln' Vmerican regards U.S.S.R. communism vs. American capitalism as ei struggle between goo,I eiml evil; eiml 'In- tactics employed bv the Communists 'He- not those of a political partv so "null a- those of conspirac) ami the 'ei/uir ,it power.
