Glas - Part 7
It will examine how the Soviets use disinformation to confuse
and manipulate the West. It will explore why the Soviet Empire is not collapsing
but being restructured and reorganized within the Communist system; why
the Communist Party and KGB are not being abolished, but simply renamed
and reorganized to improve their efficiency; and how the New Soviet Federation
will actually be a giant increase in the size, scope and influence of the
USSR, an Expansion, Not A Contraction.
It will also analyze the ominous ongoing Soviet military buildup,
in spite of all the apparent changes which are taking place. Elna Bonner
(Widow of Andrei Sakharov) in an article entitled The Myth of Gorbachev
"It took seventy years to destroy the myth of socialism as the
most beneficial and just social system. The millions of Soviet citizens
who were killed during the civil war and collectivization, who starved
to death and were executed or perished in the camps, did not destroy that
myth. The blood spilled on the streets of Budapest and at the Berlin Wall,
the Soviet tanks in Prague, the millions who voted with their legs, fleeing
Eastern Europe in search of a better life, did not destroy that myth. The
myth finally shattered because of empty store shelves and empty words.
It turned out that surrealism is not simply a movement in art;
it is a style of life...one without freedom, without normal food and shelter,
one foisted on society as a whole by a small minority...'
The myth of socialism has collapsed, but its harmful consequences
still persist, and eliminating them will be complicated by the birth of
a new myth...that Gorbachev is striving for democracy in the face of opposition,
and that the only way to help him is by silence in the Soviet Union and
in the West. The new myth's influence extends beyond the wobbly liberals
of the USSR to many people in the West, including leaders who had earlier
been called 'diehards' and 'hawks' in our press.
Gorbachev proclaimed the need of Perestroika, for reconstruction,
but no one asked what he was going to build. Gorbachev's words...'a democratic
and humane socialism'...were taken from the past. There is no more substantive
content in them than there was in the slogans 'socialism...the first phase
of Communism' and 'developed socialism.'
It is scarcely worth the effort searching for meaning in these
phrases, since escaping from one myth, we are returning to our old ways,
to a life of surrealism where everything is just fine in words, but where
60-million people are living below the poverty line. This is the statistic
for the country as a whole...in the Muslim regions, every second or third
person lives in need.
Sixty-six years after the first constitution of the USSR was adopted,
regulations governing the manner of a Republic's secession from the Union
have finally been adopted.
In the opinion of the west, once such a law exists, it should
be obeyed. But for people in the USSR, its intent is clear, and it has
been dubbed 'the non-secession law' because of the obstacles it places
in the way of secession...One of the earliest slogans of Perestroika was
'All power to the Soviets.' But when the Nagoma Karabakh regional Soviet
voted to join Armenia, Perestroika was conveniently forgotten in favor
of the constitution, which proclaims the self-determination of peoples
but makes the boundaries of the Union's Republics sacrosanct. The State
wins in any contest with the people.
The people of Karabakh are hungry, many are forcibly deported
to Armenia, and Armenia itself, devastated by an earthquake, is now being
strangled by a blockade.
People everywhere are concerned about starvation in Ethiopia
and apartheid in South Africa, but the fate of the Armenian people, who
have been brought to the brink of destruction, is considered by the West
as the Soviet Union's internal affair...The government doesn't trust the
people and has passed laws on strikes [coyly named the Law on labor Conflicts],
on emergency situations, on presidential rule, and many other anti-democratic,
anti-popular laws. In the course of two years, the constitution has been
reshaped with the single aim of concentrating absolute power in the head
of state...It's no wonder that the people don't trust the government, and
this distrust is personified in distrust of Gorbachev...
Gorbachev's power is seen as the main obstacle to the reforms
desired by the majority of the population...For Americans, Gorbachev is
the author of Perestroika, a democrat, the liberator of Eastern Europe,
the Man of the Decade. They associate his name with peace, prosperity,
reduced military budgets and lower taxes. He's the good wizard from a fairy
tale. Another myth! They're not interested in what will happen to the peoples
of the USSR under Gorbachev. A strange replay of history...a new cult of
personality, but this time in the West, not in the USSR.
On a Moscow street, the American tourist was arguing with a young
Russian, who ended the conversation with an offer, 'If you like Gorbachev
so much, why don't you take him!'"
Three top Communist defectors have all said virtually the same
thing. General Jan Sejna, former Soviet Bloc military officer, Ion Pacepa,
a KGB man, and Anatoliy Golitsyn another KGB man. In fact, Golitsyn in
his book Red Horizons says that the overall aim of Soviet policy is to:
"Bring about a major and irreversible shift in the balance of
world power in favor of the Soviet Bloc as a preliminary to...a world-wide
federation of Communist States...Western acceptance of the new liberalization
as genuine would create favorable conditions for the fulfillment of Communist
strategy for USA and Western Europe."
RESTRUCTURING AND RENAMING THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION:
The CPSU has 20 million members and another 45 million members in its Lenin
youth organization Komosomol [Komsomol is a youth organization with members
from the Red Army, the KGB, the Red Navy, the Air Force, and a majority
of the young factory workers]. The CPSU has grown top heavy and inefficient
with bureaucratic deadweight. It is about to be reorganized, restructured,
trimmed in size [or purged] to increase its efficiency, and Renamed. It
is Not going to be Abolished as Gorbachev, Bush, and the Soviet and Western
Press keep telling us.
Glas - Part 8
It should be remembered that the Communist Party of the Soviet
Union has undergone a number of metamorphoses in name: At its inception,
it was called the Bund. Then it was renamed the Russian Social Democratic
Worker's Party. In 1912, following an internal feud, it split into the
Bolsheviks and Mensheviks [the "big ones" and the "little ones"]. The big
ones ate the little ones. The name then became the Russian Social Democratic
Workers Party of Bolsheviks. In 1918, it became the Russian Communist Party
[Bolshevik]. In 1925, the name was changed again to the All-Soviet Communist
Party of the Soviet Union, which it has remained until the present. It
is now about to be renamed again [probably to the Social Democratic Party].
Each of these name changes was accompanied by major fanfare, "absolute
proof that the communists had completely changed," and the declaration
that all the political, economic, and repressive evils had been perpetrated
by the Previous Party, but that the new party would be benign, democratic,
freedom loving, etc. In reality, all of the old evils continued under the
new, revamped party, nothing changed! The present name change will not
alter any of the principles or the goals of the CPSU.
Each of the major Communist party name changes under Lenin and
Stalin were accompanied by Massive purges [called "party rejuvenation"]
to streamline the organization and bring it under formidable discipline.
Millions of Russian Communists went to the wall or the gulag in those purges.
Today's CPSU has become fat, dumb, lazy, careless, apathetic,
and passive, and is ten times larger than during WW II. It has lost sight
of its goal, it has become diluted, and will probably be trimmed by several
million members. This is not abolition of the Party, it is reorganization,
restructuring, and Strengthening of the Party.
The Communists believe that Americans and most Westerners are
shallow, superficial, gullible, and easily seduced by media-generated illusions.
Hence, if they change the name of one of their fronts or parties, and declare
the old organization to be dead, most Westerners will believe it. For decades
they have routinely changed the names of their Communist front organizations
in this manner.
They just renamed the Communist Party of Italy, now calling it
the Democratic Party. In Poland, the renamed the Communist Party [which
was called the Polish United Workers Party] to the Social Democratic Party.
In Romania, they renamed the old Rumanian Communist Party, calling the
new party the New Salvation Front. In none of those cases, [or many others]
did they really abolish those Communist parties. They simply renamed, reorganized
and restructured the parties, while gullible naive Westerners believed
the charade. It has been said, "a rose by any other name, is still a rose."
Calling the CPSU the Social Democratic Party [to some such name] will not
alter the fact that it is the same old CPSU with a new label and some new
Today, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union operates through
elected representatives, the Politburo, and the Central Committee. The
Central Committee of the CPSU [made up of 300-450 members] wields the real
power in the USSR, and an inner circle of about 100 members really call
the shots. These Central Committee members dominate the military and the
KGB, as well as the "visible" politicians such as Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Shevardnaze
and the various cabinet ministers. Gorbachev is simply an actor, an employee
who is implementing the policy laid down by the Central Committee since
the early '80s when they [and the KGB] drafted the script for the actions
taking place today.
The new refurbished, renamed Communist party was discussed at
length at the CPSU's XXVIIth AND XXVth Congress in '86 and '90. Gorbachev
described the "new party" as:
"A Party of Socialsit Choice and Communist Perspective...A party
adhering to humanistic ideals common to all mankind...intolerant of chauvinism,
nationalism, racism, and any manifestation of Reactionary Ideology and
obscurantism...A Party confirming the independence of Communist parties
of the Union republics...A Party open for contacts, Co-Actions with the
Communists, Social Democrats and Socialists of various countries."
Reading the "new Party" profile as conceived by the CPSU leadership,
it is clear that the only difference between the "old Party" and the "new
Party" is in the new one's wide acceptance of all revolutionary movements
throughout the world.
SOCIALISM TO BE SUBSTITUTED FOR
And It Has Been
"The concept, the main idea, lies in the fact that we want to
give a New Lease on Life to Socialism through perestroika and to reveal
the potential of the socialist system." (Mikhail Gorbachev, October 1989)
Then in December of 1989 Gorbachev stated:
"Today we have perestroika, the Salvation of Socialism, giving
it a second breath, revealing everything good which is in the system."
The word "socialism" will be substituted for "Communism" and latter
will be almost completely stricken from the Communist's vocabulary. From
Lenin to Gorbachev, the Communists have used the two words inter-changeably.
Socialism, as defined
by Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto, is what has been imposed on
the peoples of the USSR, China, Cuba, etc.
Socialism, as the stepping stone to the final utopian goal of
Communism, involves abolition of private property, draconian political
and financial regulations and controls on the people, huge heritage, a
monopolistic central bank, central control of education, and state control
of the family, children, religion, etc. That sounds a little bit like America
in 1991, does it not?
Glas - Part 9
If you are like most Americans, you probably wonder why the so-called
Right Wing is constantly saying that the United States has become a Communist
Nation. Well the following from Northpoint Tactical Teams, P.O. Box 129,
Topton, North Carolina 28781 tells it best, in our opinion.
Americans, have been watching the degeneration of their society,
the increase in violence, drugs, pornography, and the fanatical rise in
the national debt, and asks what will we do when America falls into Socialism,
Communism, insolvency and surrender.
Well, make no mistake about it, the Thought-theology of what we
understand is Communism HAS taken over in America. It is not called by
that name however, it is called Socialism. The Hammer and Sickle does not
adorn our flag, but we are under the control of Communism just as surely
as there is a God in Heaven and that Jesus Christ sits at His right hand.
Does that sound preposterous? Think about it. How would we know
"when Communism, is sold as democracy," is the ultimate law of the land?
Those who are not employing "more powerful levers and more subtle webs"
have succeeded in their plans, so far, and most of those living in this
country may not notice much of a difference from what they think of as
the American Way these days! To demonstrate that this is true, we will
list what has been called the ten basic planks of the Communist Manifesto,
for your study and review.
1). Abolition of Property in Land and Application
of All Rents to Public Use.
Did you know that the Federal Government of Washington, D.C.,
now owns over 40% of the land mass of the United States? That is more land
than the entire country east of the Mississippi River. It does so in direct
violation of the United States Constitution. The Federal Government now
owns more than 10% of all industrial properties, railroads, barge lines,
etc. As the government takes over more and more land, that property is
taken off the tax rolls, and thus increases the taxes all of us must pay
on the land we suppose that we own.
Most Americans think they own their land. They think that a certain
parcel upon which they live actually belongs to them. Have your lawyer
explain to you why your deeds have been drawn as they have or why you and
your wife are called "tenants in common" and other strange language and
phrases in the world of law. Here is the rule of law: If you must pay the
state or country a "property tax," and the state or country can sell your
property to someone else if you fail to pay the tax, you are not the actual
and lawful owner of that land or property! Marx called the use tax on land,
rent. Today it is called "property tax" and while universally accepted
by most Americans, the property tax is 100% Marxist (Communist) in nature.
The land that is still informally held in private hands, is now
subject to state and municipal controls called "land use" and you can only
do certain things on land that you suppose you own. If you actually owned
it, instead of being merely a "tenant with a vested interest in it," no
City, State or Federal controls could be imposed upon it.
You sit tight when the Federal Government tells you, via an unconstitutional
statute, that you must rent "your property" to anyone who comes to your
door, regardless of race, color, national origin and sexual preference.
From whence did they get the lawful jurisdiction to tell you what
you can do on "your property?" If indeed it is your property, there is
no such authority except that which you voluntarily submit to.
However, since you are merely a tenant paying property use tax
rent on the land, they have every right to tell you how you will use that
property and how far from the property line you must build any house, etc.
Can you imagine Patrick Henry putting up with such nonsense? Of course
not! But then, Patrick Henry was a Freeman, not a Communist. He did not
hold Communist ideas about the use of land, as most Americans do today.
How about you? Are you a Communist when it comes to land use?
As to the use of land, every Senator and every Congressman is
a Communist today. Nothing much will change "when Communism takes over,"
except that you will know that you are a mere tenant and not a land owner
as you had supposed for years. Some of you tenants will be pushed off the
state's land so that another tenant can use your nice home and farm, and
if you resist, you may be legally shot.
When the Communist agent, Woodie Guthrie, wrote the now famous
song, "This Land is My Land; this Land is Your Land..." he was writing
with the Communist understanding about land and land ownership. Yet patriotic
groups, ignorant of Communist objectives, often sing that song with the
same attitude and reverence as they do with "America, the Beautiful."
2). A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.
This is probably the best known of the Communist political concepts
in use today in America. If there is any Communist statute or regulation
that has been imposed unlawfully on most Americans, and one which affects
their very lives and fortunes the most, the Communist income tax has to
If there was any statute that employed more "powerful levers"
or "subtle webs," you would be hard pressed to find it. As with the progressive
tax on property, it is a Communist idea of "from each according to his
ability and to each according to his need" that finds exact expression
in the federal and state graduated income tax laws.
Yet 90% of all Americans accept this system of federal revenue
taxation as if it were both Scriptural and American. It is neither. It
comes from the Jewish Babylonian Talmud, and is the main cornerstone of
Communist Thought-theology. Marxism-Leninism is not only a political thought,
but is also the religion of the Communists and Socialists.
It is a well-known hallmark of Communism when you see people turning
in their neighbors to the authorities. It is now beginning on a large scale
in America with such carefully prepared TV shows as "UNSOLVED MYSTERIES,"
where the TV uses brutal murders, drug and child abuse crimes to get the
public accustomed to thinking about turning people in so as to solve these
crimes. You can become a "state hero" and even get paid $1,000 for your
Next, you will be paid for Turning in People who own Firearms
or for not telling our people about unlawful Government Activities. Even
now this can be seen, when someone tells another they are un-American,
un- patriotic, un-Christian or the now famous remark "Love It Or Leave
It" who complain about government officials who are ruining our country.
Never coming to the realization that it is un-American and un-Christian
NOT to speak out against government injustice. It was government officials
who put Peter and the Apostles in prison for speaking out:
"Then the high priest [a high government official at that time
and place] rose up, and all they [the other rulers of Jerusalem] that were
with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation
[because Paul and the Apostles were speaking out Against Government Injustice],
And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison...Then
came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are
standing in the temple, and teaching [once again speaking out against government
injustice - and about the Lord Jesus Christ] the people. Then went the
captain with the officers, and brought them... before the council [their
equivalent of our Congress or Supreme Court]: and the high priest asked
them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach
in this name [The name of the Lord Jesus Christ]? and, behold, ye have
filled Jerusalem with your doctrine...Then Peter and the other apostles
answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:17-29)
Are you beginning to see that Jewish, Communism, Zionism has already
taken over America?
Glas - Paert 10
3). Abolition of all Right to Inheritance.
In spite of the federal Estate Tax of 1916, your Communist government
has yet to accomplish this objective. They have imposed a heavy inheritance
tax, illegally confiscating a large part of that property a man leaves
to his children. So much so that after a couple of generations, the property
is usually gone. How many people do you know who still live on their grandfather's
farm or ranch? Naturally, the lower classes, who have chosen not to save
enough to purchase property, have no inheritances to leave.
The super-rich have been provided the use of tax- exempt foundations
so that their wealth is passed on to their posterity. It is the great middle-class
that the Communist objectives are directed toward, and which are succeeding
very well in America. Where does the federal government get the authority
and jurisdiction to tax the property of the deceased?
4. Confiscation of the Property of Emigrants
Emigrants are people who leave a country, and that does not apply
to Americans. However, look at what is done to Americans our government
calls "rebels." All the government has to do is allege that a person is
a "tax resister" or a drug pusher and his property, money and real estate
can be confiscated without due process.
Some of you saw the story on "Inside Edition" where a citizen's
property was taken by the Federal authorities without due process merely
because she had rented the house to people, later determined to have been
using the house for drug traffic. All the government needs to do is allege
that property, money, real estate, cars, boats, etc., are owned by those
involved in drugs, and that property, can be taken and sold under Public
Law 99-570 set in place in 1986.
There are some real horror stories. Some minimum wage seaman can
sneak drugs aboard a million dollar ship, unknown to the owners or the
captain, and the ship can be and probably will be confiscated by the government
without due process of law!
5. Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the
State, by means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive
It was through the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 that the private
banking cartel known as The Federal Reserve Bank came into being. It is
through this scheme, with the government controlling the banks and credit
for the benefit of the secret shareholders, that the effect of this objective
of the Communists came into being in the United States.
The super rich bankers, while they liked the controls envisioned
by Karl Marx, decided that all the usury and profits should go into their
pockets instead of the federal coffers.
It is this small outlaw band of International Jewish Bankers who
decide how much interest you are going to pay on your home mortgage and
they have the monopoly power to force other banks to charge the same rates.
Individual credit can be given or withheld at the whim of these bankers.
The "private" Federal Reserve Banking System is neither "federal"
nor does it have any "reserves" as commonly believed. The local Federal
Reserve Bank is not listed under agencies of the Federal Government, but
it is listed as a private business.
A few years ago, Senator Metcalf of Washington State launched
a campaign against the Federal Reserve and had it put on the ballot to
restore the right to create money to the Congress as specified in the Constitution.
The people in Washington State were so thoroughly indoctrinated by our
prostitute news media, that they actually voted it down! In 1933, when
so many banks lost their shirts and had to repay their depositors or close
their doors, the Federal Reserve Act was changed to incorporate the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Here is how this works, and we can
see it with the current Savings and Loan scandals. In good times, the bankers
make huge profits.
However, in bad times, the American taxpayers are called upon
to bail out the bankers, letting them retain their personal assets. But,
most people are so accustomed to the yoke of Communism, thrust upon them
in the name of "democracy" and "social security," that they believe that
these things must be the form of government our Forefathers gave us.
They think it is normal to have total taxes amount to over 50%
of their income. Where is their Great Republic based upon the Common Law
and the Constitution? For all practical purposes, it no longer exists.
6. Centralization of the Means of Communication
and Transportation in the hands of the State.
All radio and television networks are licensed and permitted to
operate "only" at the pleasure of the federal government through the Federal
Communications Commission. Because their programming is under strict federal
guidelines, anti-Communist programs are rarely aired.
Can you recall one TV program, in the past 20-25 years which set
forth the Communist objectives for the conquest of America and the World?
Instead, all programming is designed to promote Socialist/Communist thinking,
and our country is never referred to as a republic but always as a democracy.
All news is designed to promote the Communists and their leading
individuals as reasonable people, and anti-Communist nations, such as South
Africa, are always cast in an unfavorable light. Communist objectives for
America, such as degeneration of moral values, interracial marriage, promiscuous
sex, and homosexual life styles, are treated in both the news and the "situation
comedies" as normal and healthy, and are given to us and our children on
a daily basis. All transportation by air is under either the Federal Aviation
Agency or the Civil Aeronautics, and the government controls how these
private businesses operate and the fares and rates that they can charge.
The federal government controls every form of interstate commerce, and
sets the rates that these private businesses can charge and even how long
a truck driver can drive his own truck in a given day.
Glas - Part 11
7. Extension of factories and instruments of
production owned by the State.
The federal government now owns and operates more than 25,000
corporate units in direct competition with private enterprise. Most of
these corporations are operated at staggering losses, even though they
pay no property taxes and no interest on invested capital. All of these,
along with their losses, are being operated without the slightest shred
of Constitutional authority. Furthermore, according to figures taken from
the Federal Budget, the aggregate losses of these federally owned businesses
and property, including the lost state and local taxes thereon, exceed
the total amount collected each year in personal income taxes! According
to the Liberty Amendment Committee, from whom these statistics were taken,
the sale of these unlawfully owned businesses would retire about one third
of the national debt, and make the personal individual income taxes a thing
of the past.
We are 100% in favor of bringing wastelands into cultivation and
improving the soil. However, this must be done on a private enterprise
basis, and not as the result of federal bureaucratic intervention. However,
in accordance to the Communist orientation of our government, swarms of
New Officers (to use the language of the Declaration of Independence) have
been descending upon our farmers.
There is the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation,
Bureau of Mines, Environmental Protection Agency, and many others. We do
not need to comment on the crisis now being faced by America's independent
farmers. It is not the result of incompetent farmers but because of federal
meddling in both their agricultural and financial affairs.
8). Equal Liability of all to Labor.
In the first sentence, the emphasis should be on the word, liability.
This is to be a "worker's paradise" and therefore all have an equal liability,
a pecuniary obligation, to labor. Every citizen, according to Marx, is
required to labor, and ever person is to be assigned a job. There is to
be no non-laboring middle class working as salesmen and shop-keepers. Once
the farmers finally fail in large numbers [and it appears that is exactly
what is happening today 1990], not because of agriculture flaws so much
as corporate debt, the Communist agriculture armies, gathered from those
"huddled masses yearning to be free," that now clog up the welfare rolls,
will be sent forth to plant, till and harvest in the vain hope that they
can feed the people.
9). Combination of Agriculture with manufacturing.
The destruction of the cities has been going on since the Roosevelt
Depression. Socialist/Communist confiscatory property and business taxes
on producer, and welfare handouts to non-producers, have driven commerce
and industry out of the cities and provides the excuse for federal control
of land use, environmental impact studies, and regional planning. Federal
regional planning is done between states and over state lines, is the way
this Marxist plank is being carried out today.
10. FREE EDUCATION OF ALL CHILDREN IN PUBLIC
When Karl Marx wrote "free" he meant compulsory education of the
children under the control of the State. Because of the contract with the
State known as the "Marriage License," your children are legally Wards
of the State. They must have "shots" and a Social Security number "required
to protect the State's wards." State run and tax financed government schools
began soon after the publishing of the Communist Manifesto, with the key
leader at that time being Horace Mann.
Next came Socialized/Communist or often called "progressive" education
under the guidance of John Dewey. Do you remember having to read about
the wonders of Socialism-Communism in books by Lincoln Stephens in high
school? The most Socialist/Communist class in any high school is not history
or social science but English, where the leftist teacher can direct the
children to read certain books and make reports on them.
English is the only required class for all students, and it is
there that the Communists have directed their most attention. Under Biblical
law, early American instruction, where students were studying Greek and
Latin by 9 years of age, has always been the responsibility of the parents
and their church assembly. Children were taught the moral values of the
parents and of their church. Today, it is the State that determines what
the standards will be for the children's education.
Federal Aid to Education determines how the States will set up
the basic teachings and philosophy and this exactly what Marx had in mind.
This form of education teaches the child to look to the State for help,
and the State becomes the child's "god." Christian instruction, in contrast,
teaches the child to look to God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and that if
he needs a hand he finds one at the end of his arm. As you look at our
youth educated in government schools, observe their appearance and their
attitudes, and remember that crime and drug use is increasing 7X as fast
as the population, you will see the evil genius of Karl Marx in full bloom.
There is a clear distinction between "instruction" and "education."
And that is humanistic, New Age, and Eastern philosophy that man is intrinsically
good. Hence the use of the word "education" by the modern Socialist/Communist,
which means from the Latin, "draw the good out."
In contrast, the Bible teaches that all men are sinners, and that
they are basically of a sinful, wicked nature. Thus, there is no way to
"draw good out" of them. Christian philosophy, based upon the Truth of
the Bible, teaches that children are to be instructed, that is have the
good of God's Laws put into them so that they can be pleasing in God's
Glas - Part 12
Today, those church groups that teach that God's Laws are still
in full force and effect, always refer to their schools as Christian Instruction.
Those churches who have gone the way of humanism, teaching that God's Laws,
Statutes and Judgments were abandoned at the Cross, rightly call their
schools "Christian Education." The term "Christian Education" is an oxymoron,
an absurd contradiction in meaning to those of us with even a smattering
of classical study.
As to the second part of Marx's 10th Plank, children under 16
are not permitted to work for wages. All private apprentice ships have
been abolished for children seeking to learn a trade before the age of
16. Roosevelt's Socialist/Communist friends had the Fair Labor Standards
Act passed in 1937 where apprenticeships are now under the control of the
In June '91, Yeltsin [promising "swift moves to establish greater
democracy and market economics"] was elected [in the first-ever such election]
President of the Russian Republic, which has 150-million of the Soviet
Union's 285-million people. [He has since assumed near dictatorial powers].
Following that election the Western press enthusiastically described Yeltsin
as "Bigger Than Life, The Russian People Love Him." His image, readability,
and standing in the West went into orbit as he APPEARED to "stand in the
gap" against the hard-line "gang of eight" coup perpetrators during the
recent August coup/counter-coup drama. As he "appeared" to stand off the
entire Soviet Army and KGB almost single- handedly, the Western media and
public opinion went ballistic.
Americans were barraged with articles with typical headlines such
"The Right Stuff: Yeltsin Joins the Ranks of Robin Hood, Moses,
For almost a week in August, Yeltsin would have been accepted
as president of the world, had such a position existed.
WHY WAS BORIS YELTSIN NOT NEUTRALIZED?
The TV news commentators would have us believe that hard-liners
staged a coup to oust Gorbachev and revert to the old style Communist government
but, because of the democratic forces already unleashed in the USSR and
the courage of the people, the coup failed.
But, one major fact does not fit into that theory and that fact
is Yeltsin. The two key figures promoting change in the Soviet Union are
Gorbachev, who wants moderately paced change, and Yeltsin who wants the
rate of change to greatly speeded up. In recent months, many have accused
Gorbachev of sacking reformers and putting representatives of the old guard
in positions of power. Some, including Yeltsin, have gone as far as to
suggest that, in this way, he laid the foundation for the coup.
Now, if the coup was genuine, surely the hard-liners would have
silenced the two key reformers, Gorbachev and Yeltsin. The very fact that
Yeltsin was not neutralized shows that either the coup was badly bungled
or it was designed to fail!
Why was Yeltsin able to communicate with the outside world from
his besieged White House, and through a host of TV and other journalists,
for the full three days of the coup?
Why was it not possible to cut the phone lines at the pole outside
the building, or jam the radio communications? If Yeltsin had been silenced,
there would have been no rallying point in Moscow and the world would not
have been glued to their TV sets. The rapid and radical restructuring that
followed the collapse of the coup is another indication that it was planned
No, the coup leaders were mere front men who were used by the
faceless, behind-the-scenes plotters who planned the coup to fail.
Yeltsin's "thinking" is reflected in speeches he has made at the
XXVIth and XXVIIth Party Congresses of the CPSU where he highly praised
the tremendous strivings of the CPSU as well as the monumental advancements
and great successes of the Soviet Union. As he said at the first of those
"Today we find the mighty productive forces which poises our society,
the wealth supplied to the Soviet people by unfettered socialism. And all
of this is the result of a wise collective brain, titanic work, unbreakable
will, and the unsurpassable organizational talent of the Communist Party
and its Central Committee and Politburo...

assure the Congress delegates and Lenin's Central Committee that they will
fight with their entire revolutionary fervor and give unswerving dedication

In July '90, the Kremlin script called for Yeltsin to resign from
the Communist Party [as Shevardnadze and Gorbachev have now done] and Yeltsin
is now referred to as a "Non-Communist Reformer." Yes, but he is still
a hardcore Marxist-Leninist Revolutionary, an important distinction. At
this writing he has become almost a total dictator over the Russian Republic
[with its 150-million population].
Yeltsin, like Gorbachev, Shevardnadze, and the reform [liberal]
wing of the Communist Party, is totally dedicated to perestroika [a restructuring
and reorganization of the Communist Party and the Soviet Union from top
Yeltsin is for purging hundreds of thousands of bureaucrats, aparatchiks,
and the Nomenclature [the privileged one], not to terminate Communism,
but to accelerate its thrust toward World Domination. He would go even
further and faster than Gorbachev, hence the "alleged" rivalry between
