A synthesis of the Russian Textbook on psycho-politics

over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses,
and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through "mental
An address by Beria
From May 2, 1936, to October 10, 1939, I was a
dues-paying member of the Communist Party, operating under my own name,
Kenneth Goff, and also the alias John Keats. In 1939, I voluntarily
appeared before the Un-American Activities Committee in Washington,
D.C., which was chairmanned at that time by Martin Dies, and my
testimony can be found in Volume 9 of that year's Congressional Report.
During the period that I was a member of the
Communist Party, I attended their school which was located at 113 E.
Wells St., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and operated under the name Eugene Debs
Labor School. Here we were trained in all phases of warfare, both
psychological and physical, for the destruction of the Capitalistic
society and Christian civilization. In one portion of our studies we
went thoroughly into the matter of psycho-politics. This was the art of
capturing the minds of a nation through brainwashing and fake mental
health -- the subjecting of whole nations of people to the rule of the
Kremlin by capturing their minds. We were taught that the degradation of
the populace is less inhuman than their destruction by bombs, for to an
animal lives only once, any life is sweeter than death. The end of a war
is the control of a conquered people. If a people can be conquered in
the absence of war, the end of war will have been achieved without the
destructions of war.
During the past few years, I have noted with horror
the increase of psycho-political warfare upon the American public. First,
in the brainwashing of our boys in Korea, and then in the well financed
drive of mental health propaganda by left-wing pressure groups, wherein
many of our states have passed Bills which can well be used by the
enemies of America to subject to torture and imprisonment, those who
preach the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and who oppose
the menace of Communism. A clear example of this can be seen in the
Lucille Miller case. In this warfare the Communists have definitely
stated: "You must recruit every agency of the nation marked for
slaughter into a foaming hatred of religious healing."
Another example of the warfare that is being waged
can be seen in the attempt to establish a mental Siberia in Alaska,
which was called for in the Alaskan Mental Health Bill. A careful study
of this Bill will make you see at once that the land set aside under the
allotment could not be for that small territory, and the Bill within
itself establishes such authority that it could be turned into a prison
camp under the guise of mental health for everyone who raises their
voice against Communism and the hidden government operating in our own
This book was used in underground schools, and contains the
address of Beria to the American students in the Lenin University prior
to 1936. The text in the book in general is from the Communist Manual of
Instructions of Psycho-political Warfare, and was used in America for the
training of Communist cadre. The only revision in this book is the
summary, which was added by the Communists after the atomic bomb came
into being. In its contents you can see the diabolical plot of the
enemies of Christ and America, as they seek to conquer our nation by
subjecting the minds of our people to their will by various sinister
This manual of the Communist Party should be in the
hands of every loyal American, that they may be alerted to the fact that
it is not always by armies and guns that a nation is conquered.
AN ADDRESS BY BERIA
American students at the Lenin University, I welcome
your attendance at these classes on psycho-politics.
psycho-politics is an important if less known division
of Geo-politics. It is less known because it must necessarily deal with
highly educated personnel, the very top strata of "mental
By psycho-politics our chief goals are effectively
carried forward. To produce a maximum of chaos in the culture of the
enemy is our first most important step. Our fruits are grown in chaos,
distrust, economic depression and scientific turmoil. At least a weary
populace can seek peace only in our offered Communist State, at last
only Communism can resolve the problems of the masses.
Order out of chaos
The same secret societies and old
European bloodline families are in control of the world today. To better
understand what they do, we need to look at their philosophies and ideas.
One motto of theirs is "Ordo ab Chao" or "order out
chaos". First they create CHAOS, then they propose the solution,
ORDER, secretly from behind the scenes to control a given situation. There
are different areas of Freemasonry and it is all a hierarchy of power.
Occasionally, Masonic groups will work against each other in the public forum
through the agencies which they control, but they may be united behind the
scenes. You will see examples of what I mean very soon.
A psycho politician must work hard to produce the
maximum chaos in the fields of "mental healing." He must
recruit and use all the agencies and facilities of "mental
healing." He must labor to increase the personnel and facilities of
"mental healing" until at last the entire field of mental
science is entirely dominated by Communist principles and desires.
To achieve these goals the psycho politician must
crush every "home-grown" variety of mental healing in America.
Actual teachings of James, Eddy and Pentecostal Bible faith healers
amongst your mis-guided people must be swept aside. They must be
discredited, defamed, arrested, stamped upon even by their own
government until there is no credit in them and only Communist-oriented
"healing" remains. You must work until every teacher of
psychology unknowingly or knowingly teaches only Communist doctrine
under the guise of "psychology.". You must labor until every
doctor and psychiatrist is either a psycho-politician or an unwitting
assistant to our aims.
You must labor until we have dominion over the minds
and bodies of every important person in your nation. You must achieve
such disrepute for the state of insanity and such authority over its
pronouncement that not one statement so labelled could again be given
credence by his people. You must work until suicide arising from mental
imbalance is common and calls forth no general investigation or remark.
With the institutions for the insane, you have in your
country prisons which can hold a million persons and can hold them
without civil rights or any hope of freedom. And upon these people can
be practiced shock and surgery so that never again will they draw a sane
breath. You must make these treatments common and accepted. And you must
sweep aside any treatment or any group of persons seeking to treat by
effective means. [ In 1969 the Church of Scientology established the
Citizens Commission on
Human Rights (CCHR), which is dedicated to the eradication of psychiatric
violations of human rights..]
You must dominate as respected men the fields of
psychiatry and psychology. You must dominate the hospitals and
universities. You must carry forward the myth that only a European
doctor is competent in the field of insanity and thus excuse amongst you
the high incidence of foreign birth and training. If and when we seize
Vienna, you shall have then a common ground of meeting and can come and
take your instructions as worshippers of Freud along with other
psycho-politics is a solemn charge. With it you can
erase our enemies as insects. You can cripple the efficiency of leaders
by striking insanity into their families through the use of drugs. You
can wipe them away with testimony as to their insanity. By our
technologies, you can even bring about insanity itself when they seem to
resistive. You can change their loyalties by psycho-politics.
Given a short time with a psycho-politician you can alter forever their
loyalty of a soldier in our hands or a statesman or a leader in his own
country, or you can destroy his mind.
However, you labor under certain dangers. It may
happen that remedies for our "treatments" may be discovered.
It may occur that a public hue and cry may arise against "mental
healing." It may thus occur that all mental healing might be placed
in the hands of ministers and taken out of the hands of our
psychologists and psychiatrists. But the Capitalistic thirst for
control, Capitalistic in-humanity and general public terror of insanity
can be brought to guard against these things. But should they occur,
should independent researchers actually discover means to undo psycho-political
procedures, you must not rest, you must not eat or
sleep, you must not stint one tiniest bit of available money to campaign
against it, dis-credit it , strike it down and render it void. For by an
effective means all our actions and researches could be undone.
In a Capitalistic state you are aided on all sides by
the corruption of the philosophy of man and the times. You will discover
that everything will aid you in your campaign to seize, control and use
all "mental healing" to spread our doctrine and rid us of our
enemies within their own borders.
Use the courts, use the judges, use the Constitution
of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our
ends. Do not stint in your labor in this direction. And when you have
succeeded you will discover that you can now effect your own legislation
at will and you can, by careful organization of healing societies, by
constant campaign about the terrors of society, by pretense as to your
effectiveness make you Capitalist himself, by his own appropriations,
finance a large portion of the quiet Communist conquest of the nation.
By psycho-politics create chaos. Leave a nation
leaderless. Kill our enemies. And bring to Earth, through Communism, the
greatest peace Man has ever known.
Chapter 1 - The
history and definition of psycho-politics
Although punishment for its own sake may not be
entirely without recompense, it is, nevertheless, true that the end and
goal of all punishment is the indoctrination of the person being
punished with an idea, whether that idea be one of restraint or
In that any ruler has, from time beyond memory,
needed the obedience of his subject in order to accomplish his ends, he
has thus resorted to punishment. This is true of every tribe and state
in the history of Man. Today, Russian culture has evolved more certain
and definite methods of aligning and securing the loyalties of persons
and populace, and of enforcing obedience upon them. This modern
outgrowth of old practice is called psycho-politics.
The stupidity and narrowness of nations not blessed
with Russian reasoning has caused them to rely upon practices which are,
today, too ancient and out-moded for the rapid and heroic pace of our
time. And in view of the tremendous advance of Russian Culture in the
field of mental technologies, begun with the glorious work of Pavlov and
carried forward so ably by later Russians, it would be strange that an
art and science would not evolve totally devoted to the aligning of
loyalties and extracting the obedience of individuals and multitudes.
Thus we see that psycho-political procedures are a
natural outgrowth of practices as old as Man, practices which are
current in every group of men throughout the world. Thus, in psycho-political
procedures there is no ethical problem, since it is
obvious and evident that Man is always coerced against his will to the
greater good of the State, whether by economic gains or indoctrination
into the wishes and desires of the State.
Basically, Man is an animal. He is an animal which
has been given a civilized veneer. Man is a collective animal, grouped
together for his own protection before the threat of the environment.
Those who so group and control him must have in their possession
specialized techniques to direct the vagaries and energies of the animal
Man toward greater efficiency in the accomplishment of the goals of the
psycho-politics, in one form or another, have long
been used in Russia, but the subject is all but unknown outside the
borders of our nation, save only where we have carefully transplanted
our information and where it is used for the greater good of the nation.
The definition of psycho-politics follows.
The subject of psycho-politics breaks down into
several categories, each a natural and logical proceeding from the last.
Its first subject is the constitution and anatomy of Man, himself, as a
The next is an examination of Man as an economic
organism, as this might be controlled by his desires.

The next is the catalyzing and aligning of

The next is the general application of psycho-politics within Russia.
The next is the organizations outside Russia, their
composition and activity.
The next is the creation of slave philosophy
in a hostile nation.
The next is countering anti-psycho-political
activities abroad, and the final one,
the destiny of psycho-political rule in a scientific age.
To this might be added many sub categories,
such as the nullification of modern weapons by psycho-political activity.
The strength and power of psycho-politics cannot be
overestimated, particularly when used in a nation decayed by
pseudo-intellectualism, where exploitation of the masses combines
readily with psycho-political actions, and particularly where the greed
of Capitalistic or Monarchical regimes has already brought about an
overwhelming incidence of neurosis which can be employed as the
groundwork for psycho-political action and psycho-political corps.
It is part of your mission, student, to prevent psycho-political
activity to the detriment of the Russian State, just as
it is your mission to carry forward in our nation and outside it, if you
are so assigned, the missions and goals of psycho-politics. No agent of
Russian could be even remotely effective without a thorough grounding in
psycho-politics, and so you carry forward with you a Russian trust to use
well what you are learning here.
2 - The constitution of man as a political organism
Man is already a colonial aggregation of cells, and
to consider him an individual would be an error. Colonies of cells have
gathered together as one organ or another of the body, and then these
organs have, themselves, gathered together to form the whole. Thus we
see that man, himself, is already a political organism, even if we do
not consider a mass of men.
Sickness could be considered to be a disloyalty to
the remaining organisms on the part of one organism. This disloyalty,
becoming apparent, brings about a revolt of some part of the anatomy
against the remaining whole, and thus we have, in effect, an internal
revolution. The heart, becoming disaffected, falls away from close
membership and service to the remainder of the organism, and we discover
the entire body in all of its activities is disrupted because of the
revolutionary activity of the heart. The heart is in revolt because it
cannot or will not co-operate with the remainder of the body. If we
permit the heart thus to revolt, the kidneys, taking the example of the
heart, may in their turn rebel and cease to work for the good of the
organism. This rebellion, multiplying to the other organs and the
glandular system, brings about the death of the "individual."
We can see with easy that the revolt is death, that the revolt of any
part of the organism results in death. Thus we see that there can be no
compromise with rebellion.
Like the "individual" man, the State is a
collection of aggregations. The political entities within the State
must, all of them, co-operate for the greater good of the State lest the
State itself fall asunder and die, for with the disaffection of any
single distrust we discover and example set for other districts, and we
discover, at length, the entire State falling. This is the danger of
Look at Earth. We see here one entire organism. The
organism of Earth is an individual organism. Earth has as its organs the
various races and nations of men. Where one of these is permitted to
remain disaffected, Earth itself is threatened with death. The
threatened rebellion of one country, no matter now small, against the
total organism of Earth, would find Earth sick, and the cultural state
of man to suffer in consequence . Thus, the putrescent illness of
Capitalist States, spreading their puss and bacteria into the healthy
countries of the world would not do otherwise than bring about the death
of Earth, unless these ill organisms are brought into loyalty and
obedience and made to function for the greater good of the world-wide
The constitution of Man is so composed that the
individual cannot function efficiently without the alignment of each and
every part and organ of his anatomy. As the average individual is
incapable, in an unformed and uncultured state, as witness the
barbarians of the jungle, so must he be trained into a co-ordination of
his organic functions by exercise, education, and work toward specific
goals. We particularly and specifically note that the individual must be
directed from without to accomplish his exercise, education, and work.
He must be made to realize this, for only then can he be made to
function efficiently in the role assigned to him.
The tenets of rugged individualism, personal
determinism, self-will, imagination, and personal creativeness are alike
in the masses antipathetic to the good of the Greater State. These
wilful and unaligned forces are no more than illnesses which will bring
about the disaffection, disunity, and at length the collapse of the
group to which the individual is attached. The constitution of Man lends
itself easily and thoroughly to certain and positive regulation from
without of all of its functions, including those of thinking, obedience,
and loyalty, and these things must be controlled if a greater State is
While it may seem desirable to the surgeon to
amputate one or another limb or organ in order to save the remainder, it
must be pointed out that this expediency is not entirely possible of
accomplishment where one considers entire nations. A body deprived of
organs can be observed to be lessened by its effectiveness. The world
deprived of the workers now enslaved by the insane and nonsensical
idiocies of the Capitalists and Monarchs of Earth, would, if removed,
create a certain disability in the world-wide State. Just as we see the
victor forced to rehabilitate the population of a conquered country at
the end of a war, thus any effort to depopulate a disaffected portion of
the world might have some consequence. However, let us consider the
inroad of virus and bacteria hostile to the organism, and we see that
unless we can conquer the germ, the organ or organism which it is
attacking will, itself, suffer.
In any State we have certain individuals who operate
in the role of the virus and germ, and these, attacking the population
or any group within the population, produce, by their self-willed greed,
a sickness in the organ, which then generally spreads to the whole.
The constitution of Man as an individual body, or the
constitution of a State or a portion of the State as a political
organism are analogous. It is the mission of psycho-politics first to
align the obedience and goals of the group, and then maintain their
alignment by the eradication of the effectiveness of the persons and
personalities which might swerve the group towards disaffection. In our
own nation, where things are better managed and where reason reigns
above all else, it is not difficult to eradicate the self-willed
bacteria which might attack one of our political entities. But in the
field of conquest, in nations less enlightened, where the Russian State
does not yet have power, it is not as feasible to remove the entire
self-willed individual. psycho-politics makes it possible to remove that
art of his personality which, in itself, is making havoc with the
person's own constitution as well as the group with which the person is
If the animal man were permitted to continue
undisturbed by counter-revolutionary propaganda, if he were left to work
under the well-planned management of the State, we would discover little
sickness amongst Man, and we would discover no sickness in the State.
But where the individual is troubled by conflicting propaganda, where he
is made the effect of revolutionary activities, where he is permitted to
think thoughts critical of the State itself, where he is permitted to
question of those in whose natural charge he falls, we would discover
his constitution to suffer. We would discover, from this disaffection,
the additional disaffection of his heart and of other portions of his
anatomy;. So certain is this principle that when one finds a sick
individual, could one search deeply enough, he would discover a mis-aligned
loyalty and an interrupted obedience to that person's group unit.
There are those who foolishly have embarked upon some
spiritual Alice-in-Wonderland voyage into what they call the
"subconscious" or the "unconscious" mind, and who,
under the guise of "psychotherapy" would seek to make well the
disaffection of body organs, but it is to be noted that their results
are singularly lacking in success. There is no strength in such an
approach. When hypnotism was first invented in Russia, it was observed
that all that was necessary was to command the unresisting individual to
be well in order, many times, to accomplish that fact. The limitation of
hypnotism was that many subjects were not susceptible to its uses, and
thus hypnotism has had to be improved upon in order to increase the
suggestibility of individuals who would not otherwise be reached. Thus,
any nation has had the experience of growing well again, as a whole
organism, when placing sufficient force in play against a disaffected
group. Just as in hypnotism any organ can be commanded into greater
loyalty and obedience, so can any political group be commanded into
greater loyalty and obedience should sufficient force be employed.
However, force often brings about destruction and it is occasionally not
feasible to use broad mass force t o accomplish the ends in view. Thus,
it is necessary to align the individual against his desire not to
Just as it is a recognized truth that Man must
conform to his environment, so it is a recognized truth, and will become
more so as the years proceed, that even the body of Man can be commanded
The constitution of Man renders itself peculiarly
adapted to re-alignment of loyalties. Where these loyalties are
indigestible to the constitution of the individual itself, such as
loyalties to the 'petit bourgeoisie,' the Capitalist, to anti-Russian
ideas, we find the individual body peculiarly susceptible to sickness,
and thus we can clearly understand the epidemics, illnesses,
mass-neuroses, tumults and confusions of the United States and other
capitalist countries. Here we find the worker improperly and incorrectly
loyal, and thus we find the worker ill. To save him and establish him
correctly and properly upon his goal toward a greater State, it is an
overpowering necessity to make it possible for him to grant his
loyalties in a correct direction. In that his loyalties are swerved and
his obedience cravenly demanded by persons antipathetic to his general
good, and in that these persons are few, even in a Capitalist nation,
the goal and direction of psycho-politics is clearly understood. To
benefit the worker in such a plight, it is necessary to eradicate, by
general propaganda, by other means, and by his own co-operation, and self-willedness of perverted leaders. It is necessary, as well, to
indoctrinate the educated strata into the tenets and principles of
co-operation with the environment, and thus to insure the worker less
warped leadership, less craven doctrine, and more co-operation with the
ideas and ideals of the Communist State.
The technologies of psycho-politics are directed to
3 - Man as an economic organism
Man is subject to certain desires and needs which are
as natural to his being as they are to that of any other animal. Man,
however, has the peculiarity of exaggerating some of these beyond the
bounds of reason. This is obvious through the growth of leisure classes,
pseudo-intellectual groups, the "petit bourgeoisie,"
Capitalism, and other ills.
It has been said, with truth, that one tenth of a
man's life is concerned with politics and nine-tenths with economics.
Without food, the individual dies. Without clothing, he freezes. Without
houses and weapons, he is prey to the starving wolves. The acquisition
of sufficient items to answer these necessities of food, clothing and
shelter, in reason, is the natural right of a member of an enlightened
State. An excess of such items brings about unrest and disquiet. The
presence of luxury items and materials, and the artificial creation and
whetting of appetites, as in Capitalist advertising, are certain to
accentuate the less-desirable characteristics of Man.
The individual is an economic organism, in that he
requires a certain amount of food, a certain amount of water, and must
hold within himself a certain amount of heat in order to live. When he
has more food than he can eat, more clothing than he needs to protect
him, he then enters upon a certain idleness which dulls his wits and
awareness, and makes him prey to difficulties which, in a less toxic
state, he would have foreseen and avoided. Thus, we have a glut of being
a menace to the individual.
It is no less different in a group. Where the group
acquires too much, its awareness of its own fellows and of the
environment is accordingly reduced, and the effectiveness the group in
general is lost.
The maintaining of a balance between gluttony and
need is the province of Economics proper, and is the fit subject and
concern of the Communist State.
Desire and want are a state of mind. Individuals can
be educated into desiring and wanting more than they can ever possibly
obtain, and such individuals are unhappy. Most of the self-willed
characteristics of the Capitalists come entirely from greed. He exploits
the worker far beyond any necessity on his own part, as a Capitalist, to
In a nation where economic balances are not
controlled, the appetite of the individual is unduly whetted by
enchanting and fanciful persuasions to desire, and a type of insanity
ensues, where each individual is persuaded to possess more than he can
use, and to possess it even at the expense of his fellows.
There is, in economic balances, the other side. Too
great and too long privation can bring about unhealthy desires, which,
in themselves, accumulate in left action, more than the individual can
use. Poverty, itself, as carefully cultivated in Capitalist States, can
bring about an imbalance of acquisition. Just as a vacuum will pull into
it masses, in a country where enforced privation upon the masses is
permitted, and where desire is artificially whetted, need turns to
greed, and one easily discovers in such states exploitation of the many
for the benefit of the few.
If one, by the technologies of psycho-politics, were
to dull the excessive greed in the few who possess it, the worker would
be freed to seek a more natural balance.
Here we have two extremes. Either one of them are an
insanity. If we wish to create an insanity we need only glut or deprive
an individual at long length beyond the ability to withstand and we have
a mental imbalance. A simple example of this is the alternation of too
low with too high pressures in a chamber, an excellent psycho-political procedure. The rapidly varied pressure brings about a chaos wherein the
individual will cannot act and where other wills then, perforce, assume
Essentially, in an entire country, one must remove
the greedy by whatever means and must then create and continue a
semi-privation in the masses in order to command and utterly control the
A continuous hope for prosperity must be
indoctrinated into the masses with many dreams and visions of glut of
commodity and this hope must be counter-played against the actuality of
privation and the continuous threat of loss of all economic factors in
case of disloyalty to the State in order to suppress the individual
wills of the masses.
In a nation under conquest, such as America, our slow
and stealthy approach need take advantage only of the cycles of booms
and depressions inherent in Capitalistic nations in order to assert of
more and more strong control over individual wills. A boom is as
advantageous as a depression for our ends, for during prosperity our
propaganda lines must only continue to point up the wealth the period is
delivering to the selected few to divorce their control of the State.
During a depression one must only point out that it ensued as a result
of the avarice of a few and the general political incompetence of the
The handling of economic propaganda is not properly
the sphere of psycho-politics but the psycho-politician must understand
the economic measures and Communist goals connected with them.
The masses must at last come to believe that only
excessive taxation of the rich can deliver them of the "burdensome
leisure class" and can thus be brought to accept such a thing as
income tax, a Marxist principle smoothly slid into Capitalistic
framework in 1909-1913 in the United States. This, even though the basic
law of the United States forbade it and even though Communism at that
time had been active only a few years in America. Such success as the
Income Tax law, had it been followed thoroughly could have brought the
United States and not Russia into the world scene as the first Communist
nation. But the virility and good sense of the Russian peoples won. It
may not be that the United States will become entirely Communist until
past the middle of the century, but when it does it will be because of
our superior understanding of economics and of psycho-politics.
The Communist agent skilled in economics has as his
task the suborning of tax agencies and their personnel to create the
maximum disturbances and chaos and the passing of laws adapted to our
purposes and to him we must leave this task. The psycho-political operator plays a distinctly different role in this drama.
The rich, the skilled in finance, the well informed
in government are particular and individual targets for the psycho-politician. His is the role of taking off the board those
individuals who would halt or corrupt Communist economic programs. Thus
every rich man, every statesman, ever person well informed and capable
in government, must have brought to his side as a trusted confidant, a psycho-political
The families of these persons are often deranged from
idleness and glut and this fact must be played upon, even created. The
normal health and wildness of a rich man's son must be twisted and
perverted and explained into neurosis and then, assisted by a timely
administration of drugs or violence, turned into criminality or
insanity. This brings at once someone in "mental healing" into
confidential contact with the family and from this point on the very
most must then be made of that contact.
Communism could best succeed if at the side of every
rich or influential man there could be placed a psycho-political operator, an undoubted authority in the field of "mental
healing" who could then by his advice or through the medium of a
wife or daughter by his guided options direct the optimum policy to
embroil or upset the economic policies of the country and, when the time
comes to do away forever with the rich or influential man, to administer
the proper drug or treatment to bring about his complete demise in an
institution as a patient or dead, as a suicide.
Planted beside a country's powerful persons the psycho-political
operator can also guide other policies to the betterment
of our battle.
The Capitalist does not know the definition of war.
He thinks of war as attack with force performed by soldiers and
machines. He does not know that a more effective if somewhat longer war
can be fought with bread or, in our case, with drugs and the wisdom of
our art. The Capitalist has never won a war in truth. The psycho-politician
is having little trouble winning this one.
Chapter 4 - State
goals for the individual and masses
Just as we would discover an individual to be ill,
whose organs, each one, had a different goal from the rest, so we
discover the individuals and the State to be ill where goals are not
rigorously codified and enforced.
There are those who, in less enlightened times, gave
Man to believe that goals should be personally sought and held, and
that, indeed, Man's entire impulse toward higher things stemmed from
Freedom. We must remember that the same peoples who embraced this
philosophy also continued in Man the myth of spiritual existence.
All goals proceed from duress. Life is a continuous
escape. Without force and threat, there can be no striving. Without
pain, there can be no desire to escape from pain. Without the threat of
punishment, there can be no gain. Without duress and command, there can
be no alignment of bodily functions. Without rigorous and forthright
control, there ca be no accomplished goals for the State.
Goals of the State should be formulated by the State
for the obedience and concurrence of the individuals within that State.
A State without goals so formulated is a sick State. A State without the
power and forthright wish to enforce its goals is a sick State.
When an order is issued by the Communist State, and
is not obeyed, a sickness will be discovered to ensue. Where obedience
fails, the masses suffer.
State goals depend upon loyalty and obedience for
their accomplishment. When one discovers a State goal to be interpreted,
one discovers inevitably that there has been an interposition of self-willedness,
of greed, of idleness, or of rugged individualism and self-centered
initiative. The interruption of a State goal will be discovered as
having been interrupted by a person whose disloyalty and disobedience is
the direct result of his own mis-alignment with life.
It is not always necessary to remove the individual.
It is possible to remove his self-willed tendencies to the improvement
of the goals and gains of the whole. The technologies of psycho-politics
are graduated upon the scale which starts somewhat above the removal of
the individual himself, upward toward the removal only of those
tendencies which bring about his lack of co-operation.
It is not enough for the State to have goals. These
goals, once put forward, depend upon their completion, upon the loyalty
and obedience of the workers. These, engaged for the most part, in hard
labors, have little time for idle speculation, which is good. But, above
them, unfortunately, there must be foremen of one or another position,
and one of whom might have sufficient idleness and lack of physical
occupation to cause some disaffecting independence in his conduct and
psycho-politics remedies this tendency toward
disaffection when it exceeds the common persuasions of the immediate
superiors of the person in question.
5 - An examination of loyalties
If loyalty is so important in the economic and social
structure, it is necessary to examine it further as itself.
In the field of psycho-politics, loyalty means simply
'alignment.' It means, more fully, alignment with the goals of the
Communist State. Disloyalty means entirely mis-alignment, and more
broadly, mis-alignment with the goals of the Communist State.
When we consider that the goals of the Communist
State are to the best possible benefit of the masses, we can see that
disloyalty, as a term, can embrace Democratic alignment. Loyalty to
persons not communistically indoctrinated would be quite plainly a mis-alignment.
The cure of disloyalty is entirely contained in the
principles of alignment. All that is necessary to do, where disloyalty
is encountered, is to align the purposes of the individual toward the
goals of Communism, and it will be discovered that a great many
circumstances hitherto distasteful in his existence will cease to exist.
A heart, or a kidney in rebellion against the
remainder of the organism is being disloyal to the remainder of the
organism. To cure the heart or kidney it is actually only necessary to
bring its activities into alignment with the remainder of the body.
The technologies of psycho-politics adequately
demonstrate the workability of this. Mild shock of the electric variety
can, and does, produce the re-cooperation of a rebellious body organ.
is the shock and punishment of surgery which, in the main, accomplishes
the re-alignment of a disaffected portion of the body, rather than the
surgery itself. It is the bombardment of X-Rays, rather than the
therapeutic value of X-Rays which causes some disaffected organ to once
again turn its attention to the support of the general organism.
While it is not borne out that electric shock has any
therapeutic value, so far as making the individual more sane, it is
adequately brought out that its punishment value will create in the
patient a greater co-operative attitude. Brain surgery has no
statistical data to recommend it beyond its removal of the individual
personality from amongst the paths of organs which were not permitted to
co-operate. These two Russian developments have never pretended to alter
the state of sanity. They are only effective and workable in introducing
an adequate punishment mechanism to the personality to make it cease and
desist from its courses and egotistical direction of the anatomy itself.
It is the violence of the electric shock and the surgery which is useful
in subduing the recalcitrant personality, which is all that stands in
the road of the masses or the State. It is occasionally to be discovered
that the removal of the preventing personality by shock and surgery then
permits the regrowth and re-establishment of organs which have been
rebelled against by that personality. In what a well-regulated state is
composed of organisms, not personalities, the use of electric shock and
brain surgery in psycho-politics is clearly demonstrated.
The changing of loyalty consists, in its primary
step, of the eradication of existing loyalties. This can be done in one
of two ways. First, by demonstrating that previously existing loyalties
have brought about perilous physical circumstances, such as
imprisonment, lack of recognition, duress, or privation, and second by
eradicating the personality itself.
The first is accomplished by a steady and continuous
indoctrination of the individual in the belief that his previous
loyalties have been granted to an unworthy source. One of the primary
instances in this is creating circumstances which apparently derive from
the target of his loyalties, so as to rebuff the individual. As part of
this there is the creation of a state of mind in the individual, by
actually placing him under duress, and then furnishing him with false
evidence to demonstrate that the target of his previous loyalties is,
itself, the course of the duress. Another portion of this same method
consists of defaming or degrading the individual whose loyalties are to
be changed to the target of his loyalties, i.e., superiors or
government, to such a degree that this target, at length, actually does
hold the individual in disrepute, and so does rebuff him and serve to
convince him that his loyalties have been misplaced. These are the
milder methods, but have proven extremely effective. The greatest
drawback in their practice is that they require time and concentration,
the manufacture of false evidence, and a psycho-political operator's
In moments of expediency, of which there are many,
the personality itself can be rearranged by shock, surgery, duress,
privation, and in particular, that best of psycho-political techniques,
implantation, with the technologies of neo-hypnotism. Such duress must
have in its first part a defamation of the loyalties, and in its second,
the implantation of new loyalties. A good and experienced psycho-political
operator, working under the most favorable
circumstances, can, by the use of psycho-political technologies, alter
the loyalties of an individual so deftly that his own companions will
not suspect that they have changed. This, however, requires considerably
more finesse than is usually necessary to the situation. Mass
neo-hypnotism can accomplish more or less the same results when guided
by an experienced psycho-political operator. An end goal in such a
procedure would be the alteration of the loyalties of an entire nation
in a short period of time by mass neo-hypnotism, a thing which has been
effectively accomplished among the less-usable states of Russia.
It is adequately demonstrated that loyalty is
entirely lacking in that mythical commodity known as 'spiritual
quality.' Loyalty is entirely a thing of dependence, economic or mental,
and can be changed by the crudest implementations. Observation of
workers in their factories or fields demonstrates that they easily grant
loyalty to a foreman or a woman, and then as easily abandon it and
substitute another individual, revulsing, at the same time, toward the
person to whom loyalty was primarily granted. The queasy insecurity of
the masses in Capitalistic nations finds this more common than in an
enlightened State, such as Russia. In Capitalistic states, dependencies
are so craven, wants and privations are so exaggerated, that loyalty is
entirely without ethical foundation and exists only in the realm of
dependency, duress, or demand.
It is fortunate that Communism so truly approaches an
ideal state of mind, for this brings a certain easiness into any
changing loyalties, since all other philosophies extant and practiced on
Earth today are degraded and debased, compared to Communism. It is then
with a certain security that a psycho-political operator functions, for
he knows that he can change the loyalty of an individual to a more ideal
level by reason alone, and only expediency makes it necessary to employ
the various shifts of psycho-political technology. Any man who cannot be
persuaded into Communist rationale is, of course, to be regarded as
somewhat less than sane, and it is, therefore completely justified to
use the techniques of insanity upon the non-Communist.
In order to change loyalty it is necessary to
establish first the existing loyalties of the individual. The task is
made very simple in view of the fact that Capitalistic and Fascistic
nations have no great security in the loyalty of their subjects. And it
may be found that the loyalties of the subjects, as we call any person
against whom psycho-political technology is to be exerted, are already
too faint to require eradication. It is generally only necessary to
persuade with the rationale and overwhelming reasonability of Communism
to have the person grant his loyalty to the Russian State. However,
regulated only by the importance of the subject, no great amount of time
should be expended upon the individual, but emotional duress, or
electric shock, or brain surgery should be resorted to, should Communist
propaganda persuasion fail. In a case of a very important person, it may
be necessary to utilize the more delicate technologies of psycho-politics
so as to place the per son himself, and his associates, in ignorance of
the operation. In this case a simple implantation is used, with a
maximum duress and command value.
Only the most skilled psycho-political operator should be employed on such a project, as in this case of the
very important person, for a bungling might disclose the tampering with
his mental processes. It is much more highly recommended, if there is
any doubt whatever about the success of an operation against an
important person, to select out as a psycho-political target persons in
his vicinity in whom he is emotionally involved. His wife or children
normally furnish the best targets, and these can be operated against
without restraint. In securing the loyalty of a very important person
one must place at his side a constant pleader who enters a sexual or
familial chord into the situation on the side of Communism. It may not
be necessary to make a Communist out of the wife, or the children, or
one of the children, but it might prove efficacious to do so. In most
instances, however, this is not possible.
By the use of various drugs,
it is, in this modern age, and well within the realm of psycho-political
reality, entirely too easy to bring about a state of severe neurosis or
insanity in the wife or children, and thus pass them, with full consent
of the important person, and the government in which he exists, or the
bureau in which he is operating, into the hands of a psycho-political operator, who then in his own laboratory, without restraint or fear of
investigation or censor, can, with electric shock, surgery, sexual
attack, drugs, or other useful means, degrade or entirely alter the
personality of a family member, and create in that person a psycho-political
slave subject who, then, on command or signal, will
perform outrageous actions, thus discrediting the important person, or
will demand, on a more delicate level, that certain measures be taken by
the important person, which measures are, of course, dictated by the psycho-political
Usually when the party has no real interest in the
activities of decisions of the important person, but merely wishes to
remove him from effective action, the attention of the psycho-political operator need not to be so intense, and the person need only be passed
into the hands of some unwitting mental practitioner, who taught as he
is by psycho-political operators, will bring about sufficient
When the loyalty of an individual cannot be swerved,
and where the opinion, weight, or effectiveness of the individual stands
firmly in the road of Communist goals, it is usually best to occasion a
mild neurosis in the person by any available means, and then, having
carefully given him a history of mental imbalance, to see to it that he
disposes of himself by suicide, or by bringing about his demise in such
a way as to resemble suicide. psycho-political operators have handled
such situations skillfully tens of thousands of times, within and
It is a firm principle of psycho-politics that the
person to be destroyed must be involved at first or second hand in the
stigma of insanity, and must have been placed in contact with psycho-political
operators or persons trained by them, with a maximum
amount of tumult and publicity. The stigma of insanity is properly
placed at the door of such persons' reputations and is held there firmly
by bringing about irrational acts, either on his own part or in his
vicinity. Such an activity can be classified as a partial destruction of
alignment, and if this destruction is carried forward to its furthest
extent the mis-alignment on the subject of all loyalties can be
considered to be complete, and alignment on new loyalties can be
embarked upon safely. By bringing about insanity or suicide on the part
of the wife of an important political personage, a sufficient mis-alignment
has been instigated to change his attitude. And this, carried forward
firmly, or assisted by psycho-political implantation can begin the
rebuilding of his loyalties, but now slanted in a more proper and
Another reason for the alignment of psycho-political activities with the mis-alignment of insanity in that insanity, itself,
is a despised and disgraced state, and anything connected with it is
lightly viewed. Thus, a psycho-political operator, working in the
vicinity of an insane person, can refute and disprove any accusations
made against him by demonstrating that the family itself is tainted with
mental imbalance. This is surprisingly effective in Capitalistic
countries where insanity is so thoroughly feared that no one would dream
of investigating any circumstances in its vicinity. psycho-political propaganda works constantly and must work constantly to increase and
build up this aura of mystery surrounding insanity, and must emphasize
the horribleness of insanity in order to excuse non-therapeutic actions
taken against the insane. Particularly in Capitalistic countries, an
insane person has no rights under law. No person who is insane may hold
property. No person who is insane may testify. Thus, we have an
excellent road along which we can travel toward our certain goal and
Entirely by bringing about public conviction that the
sanity of a person is in question, it is possible to discount and
eradicate all of the goals and activities of that person. By
demonstrating the insanity of a group, or even a government, it is
possible, then, to cause its people to disavow it. By magnifying the
general human reaction to insanity, through keeping the subject of
insanity, itself, forever before the public eye, and then, by utilizing
this reaction by causing a revulsion on the part of a populace against
its leaders or leaders, it is possible to stop any government or
It is important to know that the entire subject of
loyalty is thus as easily handled as it is. One of the first and
foremost missions of the psycho-politician is to make an attack upon
Communism and insanity synonymous. It should become the definition of
insanity, of the paranoid variety, that "A paranoid believes he is
being attacked by Communists." Thus, at once the support of the
individual so attacking Communism will fall away and wither.
Instead of executing national leaders, suicide for
them should be arranged under circumstances which question their demise.
In this way we can select out all opposition to the Communist extension
into the social orders of the world, and render populace who would
oppose us leaderless, and bring about a state of chaos or mis-alignment
into which we can thrust, with great simplicity, the clear and forceful
doctrines of Communism.
The cleverness of our attack in this field of psycho-politics
is adequate to avoid the understanding of the layman and
the usual stupid official, and by operating entirely under the banner of
authority, with the oft-repeated statement that the principles of
psychotherapy are too devious for common understanding, an entire
revolution can be effected without the suspicion of a populace until it
is an accomplished fact.
As insanity is the maximum mis-alignment, it can be
grasped to be the maximum weapon in severance of loyalties to leaders
and old social orders. Thus, it is of the utmost importance that psycho-political
operative infiltrate the healing arts of a nation marked
for conquest, and bring that quarter continuous pressure against the
population and the government until at last the conquest is affected.
This is the subject and goal of psycho-politics, itself.
In rearranging loyalties we must have a command of
their values. In the animal the first loyalty is to himself. This is
destroyed by demonstrating errors to him, showing him that he does not
remember, cannot act or does not trust himself. The second loyalty is to
his family unit, his parents and brothers and sisters. This is destroyed
by making a family unit economically non-dependent, by lessening the
value of marriage, by making an easiness of divorce and by raising the
children whenever possible by the State. The next loyalty is to his
friends and local environment. This is destroyed by lowering his trust
and bringing about reportings upon him allegedly by his fellows or the
town or village authorities. The next is to the State and this, for the
purposes of Communism, is the only loyalty which should exist once the
state is founded as a Communist State. To destroy loyalty to the State
all manner of forbidding for youth must be put into effect so as to
disenfranchise them as members of the Capitalist state and, by promises
of a better lot under Communism, to gain their loyalty to a Communist
Denying a Capitalist country easy access to courts,
bringing about and supporting propaganda to destroy the home, creating
and continuous juvenile delinquency, forcing upon the state all manner
of practices to divorce the child from it will in the end create chaos
necessary to Communism.
Under the saccharine guise of assistance to them,
rigorous child labor laws are the best means to deny the child any right
in society. By refusing to let him earn, by forcing him into unwanted
dependence upon a grudging parent, by making certain in other channels
that the parent is never in other than economic stress, the child can be
driven in his teens into revolt. Delinquency will ensue.
By making readily available drugs of various kinds,
by giving the teen-ager alcohol, by praising his wildness, by
stimulating him with sex literature and advertising to him or her
practices as taught at the Sexpol, the psycho-political operator can
create the necessary attitude of chaos, idleness and worthlessness into
which can then be cast the solution which will give the teen ager
complete freedom everywhere – Communism.
Should it be possible to continue conscription beyond
any reasonable time by promoting unpopular wars and other means, the
draft can always stand as a further barrier to the progress of youth in
life, destroying any immediate hope to participate in his nation's civil
By these means the patriotism of youth for their
Capitalistic flag can be dulled to a point where they are no longer
dangerous as soldiers. While this might require many decades to effect,
Capitalisms short term view will never envision the lengths across which
we can plan.
If we could effectively kill the national pride and
patriotism of just one generation, we will have won that country.
Therefore, there must be continual propaganda abroad to undermine the
loyalty of the citizens in general and the teen-ager in particular.
The role of the psycho-political operator in this is
very strong. He can, from his position as an authority on the mind,
advise all manner of destructive measures. He can teach the lack of
control of this child at home. He can instruct, in an optimum situation,
the entire nation in how to handle children – and instruct them so
that the children, given no control, given no real home, can run wildly
about with no responsibility for their nation or themselves.
The mis-alignment of the loyalty of youth to a
Capitalistic nation sets the proper stage for a realignment of their
loyalties toward Communism. Creating a greed for drugs, sexual
misbehavior and uncontrolled freedom and presenting this to them as a
benefit of Communism, will with ease, bring about our alignment.
In the case of strong leaders amongst youthful
groups, a psycho-political operator can work in many ways to use or
discard that leadership. If it is to be used, the character of a girl or
boy must be altered carefully into criminal channels and a control by
blackmail, or other means, must be maintained. But where the leadership
is not susceptible, where it resists all persuasions and might become
dangerous to our Cause, no pains must be spared to direct the attention
of the authorities to that person and to harass him in one way or
another until he can come into the hands of the juvenile authorities.
When this has been effected, it can be hoped that a psycho-political operator, by reason of child advisor status, can, in the security of the
jail and cloaked by processes of law, destroy the sanity of that person.
Particularly brilliant scholars, athletes and youth group leaders must
be handled in either one of these two ways.
In the matter of guiding the activities of juvenile
courts, the psycho-political operator entertains here one of his easier
tasks. A Capitalistic nation is so filled with injustice in general that
a little more passes without comment. In juvenile courts there are
always persons with strange appetites whether these be judges or police
man or women. If such do not exist, they can be created. By making
available to them young girls or boys in the "security" of the
jail or the detention home and by appearing with flash cameras or
witnesses one becomes equipped with a whip adequate to direct all the
future decisions of that person when these are needed.
The handling of youth cases by courts should be led
further and further away from law and further and further into
"mental problems" until the entire nation thinks of
"mental problems" instead of criminals. This places vacancies
everywhere in the courts, in the offices of district attorneys, or
police staffs which could then be filled with psycho-political operators
and these become the judges of the land by their influence and into
their hands comes the total control of the criminal, without whose help
a revolution cannot ever be accomplished.
By stressing this authority over the problems of
youth and adults in courts one day the demand for psycho-political operators could become such that even the armed services will use
"authorities on the mind" to work their various justices and
when this occurs, the armed forces of the nation then enter into our
hands as solidly as if we commanded them ourselves. With the slight
bonus of having thus a skilled interrogator near every technician or
handler of secret war apparatus, the country, in even of revolution, as
did Germany in 1918 and 1919 will find itself immobilized by its own
Army and Navy fully and entirely in Communist hands.
Thus the subject of loyalties and their re-alignment
is in fact the subject of non-armed conquest of an enemy.
