Idealogical Indoctrination and Subversion of The Free World- 1984 interview with ex-KGB Yuri Bezmenov

The following interview by G. Edward Griffin was conducted in the mid-1980s. Soviet Yuri Bezmenov, ex-KGB subvertor talks about the various stages of Soviet ideological indoctrination, and although the Soviet Union no longer exists, what he had to say back then, is scarily pertinent today.

He talks of the 4 phases of brainwashing:

1. Demoralization- takes 15 - 20 years to demoralize a nation and to educate a generation of students, exposing them to Marxist and Leninist ideology. Back in 1995 he believed we had already reached that point in the U.S.

2. Destabilization- takes 2 to 5 years. Deals with the economy, foreign relations and defense of a nation.

3. Crisis which leads to

4. Violent change/overthrow and what the communists called 'normalization', which is anything but normal.

Although we were saved the 'violent' aspect of change, "change" is the operative word here.

During the last phase (and some of this is verbatim, some paraphrased) he talks of how there will be many promises of all kinds of goodies, a paradise on earth, the goals will be to destabilize the economy, to eliminate the principal of free market competition, to put a big brother government in D.C., what would be considered a benevolent dictator who promises lots of things, regardless of whether they are fulfilled or not, he will go to Moscow to kiss a new generation of Soviet assassins, he will create a false illusion that everything is in control. Any of this sound familiar? Just exchange Soviet for Russian or Islamic.
"The chickens have come home to roost", in the form of Obama and his socialist ideology.

The following video is about 8 or 9 minutes long, the 2nd link to youtube is also about 8 or 9 minutes. I have also included a link to the full interview. Remember, the interview was from 1985!

The second half of the interview can be viewed here. This is where the scary stuff is.

Hello Mayyan,

Thank you for this information. Not being able to read or write in your own language is terribly sad, but yes, the way to keep the masses in check is to keep them ignorant. and it would start with the youth. How very sad.
