Communist Goals as of 1963

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35

Current Communist Goals



Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Where are we now?  Who is involved?  What efforts have been stopped or stalled, and how?  How is Obama and the democratic congress a part of this?  What role do the CZARs play? What can we do now?

    How is the GOP, or anyone, to mount the growing socialist democrats?

    Thank you for posting this Dr. Kate.

    I think the fulfillment of these goals is very advanced since every single one of them is clearly recognizable in our society and even more apparent in the current administration.

    Back in the 80s when the Berlin wall fell we got too comfortable. I think that is because we came to believe that since RUSSIA was no longer a threat then COMMUNISM wasn’t either and we forsook our vigilance. However, the ideology of Communism did not fall with the wall as we well know. Here is a link to a map of all the nations that are currently under Communist rule:

    Clearly, Communism is alive and well on planet Earth.

    The result of our erroneous conclusion is that we no longer taught against Communism in the schools, nor did we continue our vigilance against it in the broader society. Therefore, when the Communist/Socialists in America saw that the gates of influence are were no longer being guarded, they flooded in. They have been allowed to take over the educational system, the media, and at least one political party. They are currently taking over the government itself.

    I have been thinking about what to do about this. I don’t know all the answers but I am sure of one: in addition to educating the American people about our Constitution we must also educate them (and ourselves) about the evils of Communism. This war (and it is a war. Always has been.) is currently ideological. We must engage the ideology and expose it for what it is- the most oppressive, violent, bloody, deadly, dehumanizing, enslaving, impoverishing, torturous, abusive, and evil form of government the world has ever known. There is abundant proof of what it does in the historical accounts of nations so oppressed. We need to revive these accounts and these documentations and reveal them. Then we need to place the 45 goals side by side with the changes in our own nation for the last 40 years. Then we need to ask the American people whether or not they want to end up like these other nations and make it clear that that is the end of Communism. It is fundamentally, inherently, essentially destructive.

    It might not be a bad idea to educate our representatives on it either.

    These are long term ideas. Is there more that can be done in the near term?

    We need more Sarah Palins.

    I’m coming to the conclusion that there are three types of people in this war.

    The Paul Revere types who are sounding the alarms.

    The George Washington types who are the do-ers.

    The rest of the population who hear the cries, close their ears and eyes, and hope it will all go away.

    I have lost relationships because I consider myself in the first category. We all have. But we’re all still here, and we have a lot more work to do.

    Yesterday I read some of this story about the reading list from Jennings (“safe school czar” – MAKE ME VOMIT!). It literally made me nauseous.

    I don’t have children, but we all know people who do. It is disgusting beyond description. I suggest people print this article, show it to every parent with school age children, and every adult without children who pay taxes to ‘government’ schools. STAND UP, SPEAK UP, and STOP THE MARCH of COMMUNISM! This is beyond outrageous.

    And then tell those parents about CBS’s perversion of Frosty the Snowman.

  6. 8 Katie December 5, 2009 at 9:16 am

    And then direct them to this post on Citizen Wells (including the Comments section where you will see more than one occasion of a supposed POTUS flipping people off.)

    I’ve had it with the degradation in America.

    Looks like they’re progressing right along on most of those points with very few out of reach.

    And they’ve got a guy (or guys) in the White House reading from the same communist playbook!!

  8. 12 No-nonsense Nancy December 5, 2009 at 10:59 am

    Thanks, Dr. Kate, I’m going to print this out and give it to everyone. Most of my family are educators so the part about the schools should hit home.

  9. 13 jtx December 5, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    Communist, indeed!!!

    Here’s a bit of “Holiday Cheer” for the White House that includes a color version of the Washington Times B&W ad of the “three monkeys” that caused the Flying Monkeys to lose their cookies and the quote by one of the originators of the precepts of natural law ain’t beanbag either:

    No one on word press who lists Skousen’s Communist Goals mentions that he was a racist and an authoritarian. Read the expose on my home page this weekend for more info.
