This list is from the book "The naked Communist", read as an excerpt from that book into the Congressional record. The book was written by an ardent anti-communist. There has never, to the best of my knowledge, been any corroboration of the Kremlin's creation of these goals.

My guess is that these goals, written by Skousen, are his vision of what was happening in America at the time, and how these things could lead to Communism.

In fact, Soviet communism is dead as we knew it, and the Chinese are something other than Communists at this point.

I imagine these 45 goals as being similar to environmentalists retroactively writing a list of items (emissions, deforestation, etc) and claim that they would lead to an increase in hurricane activity after the hurricane seasons of the last several years, then holding their list up as proof that they were right because there has been an increase in hurricanes these past several years.

Well, it's basically just a laundry list of everything the guy dislikes and then attempts to link it with Communism.

It's obviously nonsensical and has almost nothing to do with any actual Communists(where's government control of the means of production?

Gets posted on FR about once a month where the not-very-bright ooh and aah over it.

Parts of it, yes. But some of them have happened in the 50 years since 1963.
