THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

"What has always made the State a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven."–Holderlin


The link to this video was forwarded to me by someone on the 9.12 list. (It was first posted by James, so a h/t to him.) It is an interview with a former KGB operative who later defected to the U. S. Although the interview was conducted in 1985, the tactics are timeless and still being used by the Left today. Currently, we are so numb to this insidious brainwashing that it rarely reaches our conscious awareness unless we are alerted to it.

I want to look into the CONTENT of the indoctrination of the Left in a subsequent post, i.e., the theories espoused, terminology used, etc. However, this video is a terrific introduction to considering specific content because it describes the PROCESS used. He is speaking in terms of the old Soviet Union, however, the tactics and goals remain the same no matter whether the label is communism, socialism, Marxism, statism, etc.

It is good to have the frame for the “big picture” before trying to fill in the details. This video provides that framework.
