Transcript from treason to murder. It offers a powerful political myth inspiring Communists with fanatical zeal. A Full-Time Organization American political parties are usually active during election campaigns. Their primary function is to elect this or that candidate to office. Between campaigns activity is at a low ebb. The Communist Party functions at all times of the year, every day of the week, and at all hours of the day. It is a 'nil-time organization which is not restricted to election campaigns. It persistently seeks to permeate every phase of American life for its own subversive purpose. Communist aSents may be found wherever and whenever there is an opportunity for Communist propaganda or the promotion of civil strife, whether it be the factory, the union, the church, the school, or the neighborhood. Supersensitivity on Organization Matters No political party in this country ever was so supremely conscious of the mechanics of organization as is the Communist Party. This is a demonstration of its quasi-military naracter. Like an army, it pays marked attention to what "takes the wheels go round and to organizational tech- "I'les. The Communist International has published con- Oerable literature dealing specifically with party organi- ation. From time to time the party has published special rgans, known as the Parly Organizer and later as Contact, w<>" as pamphlets and articles, dealing with purely rRanizational problems and intended only for the eyes of '' rry members. Every convention and meeting of the onal committee of the Communist Party is devoted in Die part to organizational questions. Voluminous mate- and directives on such matters have been sent to this j "nt:ry from Moscow for the use of the American party. . 1935 the party published its Manual on Organization by ' Meters, after he had spent years of study in Moscow. ery Communist unit and front organization has its s-tnizational director, a post peculiar to this type of 0f8aniZation. ^•Re to Control or Destroy Other Organizations Ou ^•e/make t'ts or to control them.

This approach is inherent in the Communist movement and was laid down by Lenin in his work "Left-Wing" Communism: An Infantile Disorder, first printed in Bussia in April, 1920, in which lie declares: It is necessary to agree to any and every sacrifice, and even — if need be — to resort to all sorts of devices, manoeuvres, and illegal methods, to evasion and subterfuge, " " ° Hence the Communist Party, pro-Soviet always, nevertheless calls itself the party of Jefferson, Jackson, and Lincoln. It operates behind the scenes of the Progressive Party and the American Labor Party. Its members resort to aliases and deny their affiliation. It builds up numerous front organizations with attractive labels to ensnare the unwary in its various campaigns. Its leaders do not hesitate to deceive their own members as to the party's real nature and purpose. Always on the Offensive Well-intentioned but naive individuals are constantly deploring the fact that Communists rudely reject their amicable advances for good will and cooperation. They are wont to blame themselves or our own national policy for lack of response to their friendly overtures. They do not understand that the Communist Party, USA, looks upon itself as being in the nature of a reconnaissance and commando force operating in enemy territory in behalf of the Soviet fatherland. In accordance with this concept, just as in the case of an actual military detachment of a hostile, foreign foe based upon American soil, correct military strategy would call for a constant offensive against us, so the Communist Party stays constantly on the offensive against all who refuse to do its bidding. This approach is clearly outlined by Lenin in his Works, volume VI, page 291: The defensive is tlie death of every armed uprising; it is lost before it measures itself with its enemies. Surprise your antagonists while their forces arc scattering, prepare new successes, however small, but daily; " ° ° in the words of Dan- ton, the greatest master of revolutionary policy yet known, de I'nudaee. (le Taudace, encore de I'audace! (audacity, audacity, more audacity). Unaware of the philosophy behind Communist tactics, unsophisticated and softhearted liberals are sometimes stunned by the barrage of invective which greets their well-meant advances. They are unmindful of Lenin's effort to arouse among his followers a "passion for political denunciation," a field in which he was a master. This will explain why a Communist always seem to carry a chip on his shoulder. This note of belligerence is echoed by J. Peters in the Communist Party — a Manual on Organization, where he indicates that the party — Unit as a whole and every individual member of the Unit should be known by the workers in the street or town as fearless lighters • • •. The party operates on the theory that "He who is not with us, is against us." Planninc Ahead Within tlie Communist Party, USA, every step is planned in detail from the smallest club or unit in tlie United States to the highest echelons of the international Communist Page 9 V
