Found this Communist agenda and put my comments in red. It is very worrisome to find that many of the problems that Conservatives see in our society and our governmental solutions were listed as the primary goals of the Communist party in the 60’s.
Your comments on where you think we stand on these issues would be appreciated.
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 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. Not done
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. Not done
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. Obama
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. Obama & GE
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. Done
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. No, thanks to Reagan
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. Tests stopped
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. Done
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.) Obama and Soros agenda
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. Done
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. In process, Pledge of Allegiance
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. ????
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. Democrats closing in
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. Affirmative action and lack of voter IDs
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. Well on the way
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, policy-making positions. MSM bias
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. Hollywood done, TV News in process
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.” In process
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.” In process
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. Done
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. Done
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” Done
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.” In process
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.” Final stages
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. Obama’s and many Democrats’ opinion
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.” Democrats are forging ahead on this
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. Not done
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. Obama’s intention
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. ????
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Abolished in 1975

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. Success
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]. Partially accomplished
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. Done
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. Hillary’s It Takes A Village, DYFS
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. Unions
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. ????
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal. US ceded control to Panama 12/31/99 and now managed by Hong Kong company.
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. Obama attempting to cede authority to UN
