Now deceased, he was a KGB defector with a message for us from the literal 1984 - but which is unfortunately even more relevant in 2020 (albeit too late evidently).
The message was directed to Americans specifically but applies to all of us everywhere else too - because as he describes - this is a "world communist system". The war to implement it globally was going on then and its final stage carries out today (hint: we are losing).
After all, if Yuri was incorrect in his prediction that the Soviets were - at the time, "only several years away from winning this war", if his warnings were heeded then surely we would not be experiencing our new normal today.
"Normalization is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda.
When the Soviet tanks (and 250,000 troops) moved into Czechoslovakia in '68 Comrade Brezhnev said 'now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized'.
This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all these schmucks to bring the country to crisis. To promise people all kind of goodies and the paradise on Earth. To destabilize your economy, to eliminate the concept of free market competition, and to put a big brother government in Washington DC."
"Ideological subversion... [is] to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent - that despite 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."
Stage 1: DEMORALIZATION
"It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation... this is the minimum number of years to educate 1 generation of students in the country of your enemy: exposed to the ideology of the enemy.
In other words, Marxism Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft-heads of at least 3 generations of American students - without being challenged or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.
The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already... not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such a tremenous success. Most of it is done by Americans to Americans - thanks to lack of moral standards.
Exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralized is unable to assess true information: the facts tell nothing to him...
when the military boot crashes his balls then he will understand it - but not before that - that's the tragic of the situation of demoralization."
Stage 2: DESTABILIZATION
"The next stage is destabilization. This time, subverter does not care about your ideas or patterns of your consumption - whether you eat junk food and get fat & flabby it doesn't matter anymore...
what matters is essentials: economy, foreign relations, and defense systems.
And you can see it quite clearly... the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic - I could never believe it 14 years ago ... that the process will go that fast."
Stage 3: CRISIS
"The next stage of course is crisis, it may take only up to six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis..."
Stage 4: NORMALIZATION
"After crisis - with a violent change of power, structure, and economy - you have so called the period of normalization - it may last indefinitely."
One of the aspects I find most shocking about Yuri's message, aside from his stunning accuracy in predicting our situation in 2020, is a little known yet very large figure by his estimate that there were as many as 25 to 30 million Russian people being held in concentration camps. That was in 1984. Complete mind-shattering news to me that in our recent history there was such an astronomical number of people enslaved in Russia...
"there's no qualitative change in the Soviet concentration camp system [from the days of Stalin's regime]. There are changes in numbers of prisoners... this is unreliable Soviet statistics; we don't know how many political prisoners are there ... but we sure know, from various sources ... there are close to 25 to 30 million of Soviet citizens who are virtually kept as slaves in forced labour camp system. Size of population [of] a country like Canada is serving terms as prisoners."
The next logical question is then, how many are imprisoned today? Read on.
NOTY 2020 Runner Up:Anotolly Golitsyn
Continuing the theme of this Marxist Leninist World Communism Takeover (our new normal), the runner-up to Yuri Bezmenov is another important defector, naturally: Anotolly Golitsyn. A former agent who did not, for fear of murder from the KGB, reveal himself so much to the world as did Yuri (who also feared for his life but decided to go public after realizing the KGB had uncovered his identity and new career working as a CBC correspondent in Quebec).
The man who knew Golitsyn best - who published The Perestroika Deception a book based on Golitsyn's original memorandum provided to the CIA - was the late Christopher Story. In Christopher's words:
"Basically what Golitsyn taught & revealed was that, all Soviet governments are Lenninist governments. They are driven by the deception strategy perfected by Lennin. Which is aimed at a long-range strategy; namely: control of the whole world."
As profound as Yuri's message was I am uncertain as to if the following interviews - featuring Christopher Story who is quoted above along with his colleague & friend William H. Mcllahny - are not more important.
It is here, about a decade later, that they discuss Golitsyn's warning which is eerily similar to that of Yuri Bezmenov's: that the breakup of the Soviet Union was nothing more than a deception; a psy-op and rebranding to get leaders and people of the West to let their guard down; to lull them into thinking that Russia is no longer a dictatorial communist led superpower. When just the opposite was true: and this so-called Red Army could then quietly advance not only their 'world communist system' but as these two intellectuals would also highlight: a worldwide criminal mafia, drug trafficking network and global terror offensive too.
It is also in this interview that they provide a slightly more modern insight into the claims of concentration camps in Russia, building on what Yuri originally stated.
"The system of some 1700 concentration camps that comprise the Soviet Gulag prison house of territory, with millions & millions of political prisoners - all of those concentration camps are still there! But never discussed by the media, who tells us that since 1989 that Communism has gone out of business.
... not only has there has been no change in the Soviet concentration camp system - but [neither] in their massive military buildup, their worldwide espionage activities within Western nations, [and] the subversion & sabotage they wage..."
The discussion is incredible to witness in light of Yuri Bezmenov's original warning and of course our newly normalized reality for which we find ourselves today. Quite clearly in the midst of the last stages of this long unannounced, undeclared war; the 'crisis' and normalization stage have arrived as foretold.
"they prepared this strategy [control of the whole world] & then when they had worked out how they were going to deceive the West - in what has turned out to be the biggest deception operation in the history of mankind to be honest - they convened a conference called the 81 Party Congress which took place on one day on the 6th of December 1961. Consisting of 81 parties from all over the world, communist parties, and the long range strategy was rubber stamped, and that was it.
Yet if you only know of Yuri's material and of these interviews regarding Golitsyn; it is still just a fraction of the understanding required for the big picture to truly click. Rather than things finally clicking for you in the form of a swift kick of a military boot I suggest learning more from yet another courageous Russian...
NOTY 2020 Runner Up: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Anyone who has lived through 2020 and has ability to read, must read Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago.
In it, he describes the situation in Russia in the early stages of this so called world communist system. As the pet pilot - and wildly successful - takeover strategy was just getting started. It is in this era that you can understand the monster being created; the tentacles of which have reached in & have begun to dominate our civilization today.
Most importantly, you can understand how it was allowed to happen: the inconvenient reality that it was not the NKVD, guards, or Soviet soliders who were to blame but it was the citizenry; the 'victim' him/herself. The passive masses who did what they were told, who 'complied' with the 'new normal' imposed upon them. Who 'believed'. This illogical mass belief in a total ruthless, unforgiving enemy - one who we know now to be a criminal enterprise; assuming initial yet illegitimate power via assassination & violent revolution - enabled the next stages of the insanity. The secret policing, the checkpoints and of course the roundups and ensuing genocides. The power of these thugs made possible only by those very Russian victims - who as much deserve sympathy are as equal to blame as Solzhenitsyn points out. It was they who believed the lies & deception that were blasted from atop and all the way down to the troops on the ground carrying out the door-to-door roundups at peoples' homes.
The traditional image of arrest is also trembling hands packing
for the victim - a change of underwear, a piece of soap, some-
thing to eat; and no one knows what is needed, what is permitted,
what clothes are best to wear; and the Security agents keep in-terrupting and hurrying you:
"You don't need anything. They'll feed you there. It's warm
there." (It's all lies. They keep hurrying you to frighten you.)
Analyzing what we know about this world communist system - particularly from at its early stages here as Solzhenitsyn exposes - and all the way through beyond World War 2 and in the era highlighted by Golitsyn, then the one described by Bezmenov, and up unto modern times - we can begin to see a consistent pattern...
despite deception being the crux of the 'long range' strategy, the core problem becomes as clear as day.
The problem is not communists. The problem is you - who believes them.
You are the problem if you believe that they will do good (giving them authority & opportunity to subvert you behind your back; to infiltrate your community, your industries, your airwaves without confrontation, without resistance).
You are also the problem if you believe they will do bad - which gives them authority over you & the leverage needed to of course carry out the very things you 'believe' they will do.
Lies, deception and fear - they love using fear - it is free for them - to get you intimidated to go along with any new terms they change & re-define a result of your consent to their newfound authority. Oh, you didn't 'believe' they would change the terms of the offer now did you? That was your selfish mistake. You traded authority over your life in exchange for the convenience of 'higher authority' to make decisions on your behalf - and decisions they will certainly make.
Lying, deceptive, illegitimate authority is made possible only by you - the selfish believer. Who, upon consent - relinquishes authority over self and unloads it into the rubbing hands of a few. Your consent to believe itself is the source of power - one that will influence and affect others around you. Who may have otherwise looked up to you for guidance - those who unfortunately believed in your decisions whether you were conscious of it or not - who are now being led down your same path sold to you by your idol.
Hence this cult 'plague' we have before us is indeed worldwide. And the parasite commies exploit it to no end. The exploitation will continue until at least their 'control of the whole world' is complete, whatever that means ... I suspect it is simply another 'definition' layered into the offer with the terms sold to middle ranks to get their consent to go along with and execute atrocities along the way; only to have its definition changed again when the useful idiots have used up their usefulness.
For this reason I do not 'believe' in total world control; its unachievable and perhaps the root of the very deception that is Marxism Leninism. What matters is not their goal, but how the 'offer' is received. The offer on its own is just that, an offer. It is consent that seals the deal. Mass atrocities are enabled by the masses.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things
have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make
an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say
good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example
in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not
simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the down-
stairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had
nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of
half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?
After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for
no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be
cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out
there on the street with one lonely chauffeur-what if it had been driven off
or its tires spiked? The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of
officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed
machine would have ground to a halt!
If .. if ... We didn't love freedom enough. And even more-we had no
awareness of the real situation...
We purely and simply deserved everything
that happened afterward.
Leon Trotsky (born Leiba Bronstein) was a Jewish communist and mass murderer, who took part in the Revolution of 1917 by immediately becoming the leader of the Communist Party. He was one of the seven members of the first Politburo, and the founder and commander of the Red Army. pic.twitter.com/jSb3Tll2s8
The leaders of the 1917 Revolution knew that Marxism - an ideal state of slavishly devoted, spiritually and morally degenerated population - could not be attained unless all the intelligentsia and nobility, which would never be content with a life of slavery, were exterminated. pic.twitter.com/sBvDefH1oy
Over 65 million Russians died during the Communist regime in Russia, many of whom were murdered execution-style. The reason why they don't teach us about this in the history class is because the people who created this ideology now own the governments and write history books. pic.twitter.com/ejSxFYWCV4
More than 100 million – mostly Christians – died at the hands of Communists in the 20th century, far exceeding the alleged 6 million of Holocaust. Yet, we don't hear about it anywhere in the Media. Why? Because the people whose ideology killed those 100 million own the Media. pic.twitter.com/5XwlOd0wLX
