I was wondering this last night...
What a weak-kneed people Americans have become.
In some ways I admire Egypt’s young people, in the streets, day and night, demanding their government not just change; but their president resign.
Oh I have thought about the pitfalls of something like that happening here and in some ways we have not yet stewed enough for it to boil over. In America’s case though, it will still be a progressive/socialist left verses liberty, even though the mob will shout for freedom & democracy; never realizing democracy is the language of their dictators.
"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization".It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism."--KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov--Soviet Subversion of the Free Press (Ideological subversion, Destabilization, CRISIS - and the KGB)
