The Naked Communist (Political Freedom Series) (Volume 1)
W. Cleon Skousen
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the New York Times bestselling author of The 5000 Year Leap, The Naked Capitalist and the original edition of The Naked Communist.
To date, The Naked Communist has sold almost two million copies and has found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across the United States. In one clarifying and readable volume, the whole story of communism is graphically told and includes the tragic histories of China, Korea, Russia, the UN, Alger Hiss, Whittaker Chambers, Elizabeth Bentley, General MacArthur, and others. National broadcaster Paul Harvey at CBS said, "I have never given any volume such an unqualified endorsement."
The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than one hundred books and treatises on communism, many written by Marxist authors. This text that reviewers have called "the most powerful book on communism since J. Edgar Hoover's Masters of Deceit" sees the communist as he sees himself - stripped of propaganda and pretense. Readers are offered an explanation of the appeal of communism, its history, its basic and unchanging concepts - even its secret timetable of conquest.
Among the many questions it answers are:
* Who gave the United States' nuclear secrets to the Russians?
* How did the FBI fight communism after it was forced underground in 1918?
* Why did the West lose 600 million allies after World War II?
* What really happened in Korea?
* What is communism's great secret weapon?
* Is there an answer to communism?
* What lies ahead?
* What can I do to stop communism?
* How can we stop communism without a major war?
**This edition of The Naked Communist has been updated for 2016. Included is a chapter on the 45 Communist Goals that details how 44 of those 45 goals have been achieved. Also new is a chapter about the making of The Naked Communist that sheds light on how this book has sold almost two million copies.
Student: "Do you mean it is impossible for an American to be a true Communist without betraying his own country?" Lenin: "Hatred for one's own government and one's own bourgeoisie -- the sentiment of all class conscious workers ... is a banal phrase if it does not mean revolution against their own governments. It is impossible to rouse hatred against one's own government and one's own bourgeoisie without desiring their defeat."17 Student: "Would an American Communist be expected to

who would acquire the habit of observing what Lenin called the "simple fundamental rules of every-day social life in common." The fallacy of this hope lies in Communism's perverted interpretation of human behavior. It assumes, on the basis of Dialectical Materialism, that if you change things outside of a man this automatically compels a change on the inside of the man. The inter-relation between environment on the outside and the internal make-up of man is not to be disputed, but environment
productive pupils -- a majority in school as elsewhere -- would, for a time, be relieved of the necessity to study or to produce. This would continue until the high producers had sunk or had been driven down to the level of the low producers and therefore had nothing to contribute to their companions. At that point, in order for anyone to survive, the 'authority' would have no alternative but to begin a system of compulsory labor and punishments against even the low producers. They, of course,
attack.... To win we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movements on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist!"8 ____________________ 1.
