2. Unanticipated Obstacles To The Third Revolution’s Use Of Classic Methods

For reasons too extensive to enumerate, conditions have become considerably adverse to such indoctrination in almost all the West and in vast segments of public opinion. Communism’s dialectics and its full and open doctrinal propaganda have visibly declined in persuasive power.

This explains why in our days communist propaganda is carried out in an increasingly disguised, mild, and gradual way.

Communism today….”Its disguise is effected either by spreading sparse and veiled Marxist principles through socialist literature”…Critical Race Theory being just one example of a continuation of Marxist indoctrination.

Its disguise is effected either by spreading sparse and veiled Marxist principles through socialist literature, or by instilling in the culture of the establishment itself certain principles that, like seeds, later bear fruit, leading centrists to an inadvertent and gradual acceptance of the communist doctrine in its entirety.
