KGB Defector Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov in his famous 1983 Los Angeles lecture on subversion as a means to demoralization, destabilization, crisis, and "normalization" -- within the context of Marxist revolutionary strategy.
"The main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area of intelligence at all. Only about 15% of time, money and manpower is spent on espionage and such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion or active measures,…or psychological warfare."
--Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov (aka Tomas David Schuman)
"Strategic MindWar must begin the moment war is considered to be inevitable. It must seek out the attention of the enemy nation through every available medium, and it must strike at the nation's potential soldiers before they put on their uniforms. It is in their
homes and their communities that they are most vulnerable to MindWar."
--Maj. Aquino and Col. Vallely, "From PSYOP to MindWar: The Psychology of Victory," 7th Psychological Operations Group, 1980.
"Debt is an implement for creatin’ and enforcin’ slavery. Your Russian allies are slaves of an infernal state, life sentence. You have pretty nigh got a life sentence. Prosperity WAS just round the corner. Now it ain’t, not by a darn sight. It is NOT just round the corner. And the LONGER you go on being at war, the further off it will be."
--Ezra Pound, Radio Broadcast #95 (June 5, 1943) U.S.(C48)
