KGB Defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn’s Distress At Western Blindness To Communist Long-Range Policy


Throughout KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn’s 1995 book The Perestroika Deceptionthe author decries the West’s blind acceptance of the political and economic changes that occurred within the Soviet Bloc, culminating in the collapse of the East Bloc and later the collapse of the USSR. In a typical passage denoting exasperation that can be found throughout the book, Golitsyn writes:

"Western acceptance of the changes in the USSR and Eastern Europe as a trend towards genuine democracy which serves Western interests and therefore merits Western support show how little the West comprehends the essence of the changes and the dangers they entail. In part this non-comprehension arises from confusion over terminology. What the West calls ‘democratisation’, Soviet strategists call the transformation of the ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ into the ‘state of the whole people’."2

Western governments, of course, are well aware that the collapse of the USSR (and East Bloc) is a strategic ruse, its purpose to lull the West into complacency, and the West keeps its silence concerning the ruse, enabling the ruse, because the political parties and institutions of the West were long co-opted by Marxists,3 including co-option of Western intelligence agencies such as the CIA.Golitsyn wouldn’t have been aware that the political parties of the West were already long co-opted by Marxists when he wrote his first book, New Lies for Old (1984), and had no reason to suspect Marxist co-option of the West even during the process of collapse within the USSR. After the collapse, however, is a different story. Because the USSR altered its strategy (no doubt after the publication of  New Lies for Old) and instead of utilizing a 'liberalization' ruse it instead opted for a 'liberalization resulting in a collapse' ruse,  a 'liberalization resulting in a collapse' ruse would have clued Golitsyn to the Marxist pedigree of the West, globe even, by the time he was preparing The Perestroika Deception for publication. 

We clearly discern the fraudulent collapse of the USSR by (1) the continued existence of thousands of statues to the anathema Lenin standing proudly throughout Russia; (2) the continued existence of anathema Soviet iconography;5 and (3) post USSR electorates electing back into power Soviet era Communist Party member Quislings.6 With a 'liberalization' ruse there would be no problems with the continued existence of such Soviet themed artifacts and electing into power Communist Party members, but with a 'liberalization resulting in a collapse' ruse those Soviet artifacts and elections are tell tale signs proving that the collapse of the USSR is a strategic ruse. Under Golitsyn's original understanding, as presented in New Lies for Old, the USSR was to only 'liberalize', after which the continued existence of Soviet themed artifacts and the election of Communist Party members would be normal. Not normal, however, if the USSR had collapsed. Indeed, the fact that not one political party in the West voiced a need to verify  the collapse of the USSR would have also alerted Golitsyn that the political parties of the West were co-opted by Marxists, since the survival of the West depends on verification. 

In The Perestroika Deception Golitsyn doesn't discuss what he knows concerning the Marxist co-option of the West (the book is a mere collection of memorandum the author submitted to the CIA between 1973 and October 1995), which is where this researcher fills in the gaps. The following succinct proof proves the Marxist co-option of the West...

The West never verified the collapse of the USSR because no collapse occurred, since if a real collapse had occurred the West would have verified it, since the survival of the West depends on verification. Conversely, this proves that the political parties of the West were co-opted by Marxists long before the fraudulent collapse of the USSR, since the survival of the West depends on verification.

In fact, the 'freed' Soviets and West also never (1) de-Communized the Soviet Armed Forces of its Communist Party officer corps, which was 90% officered by Communist Party members; and (2) arrested/de-mobilized the 5-6 million vigilantes that assisted the Soviet Union's Ministry of the Interior and police control the populations of the larger cities during the period of Perestroika (1986-1991).

Due to New Lies for Old, the USSR was (1) forced to alter its strategy; which (2a) allows one to empirically verify the fraudulent collapse of the USSR; thereby (2b) also allowing one to empirically verify the Marxist infiltration of the West's political parties and institutions.

    3.  The failed socialist inspired and controlled pan-European revolutions that swept the continent in 1848 thought Marxists and socialists a powerful lesson, that lesson being they couldn’t win overtly, so they adopted the tactic of infiltration of the West’s political parties/institutions. 

    4.  Four months after the Ford administration took power in August 1974 the one man in the CIA leading          the fight against the Communists' Long-Range Policy (the new strategy all Communist nations                      signed onto in 1960 to defeat the West, as earlier understood by KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn,          until he would later come to understand that the political parties and institutions of the West were                already long co-opted by Marxists), Counterintelligence Staff (CI Staff ) chief James Angleton, was                forced out of the agency. Following the firing of Angleton the CI Staff was purged from 300                          personnel to 80 personnel, those 80 that survived the purge being Marxist operatives. After                          Angleton's departure from the CIA KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn became persona non grata at            the agency. Guess who President Ford’s first White House Chief of Staff was who oversaw the firing of          Angleton? Donald Rumsfeld. Guess who Rumsfeld’s assistant was? Dick Cheney. The same two                      Marxist operatives that gave the world the War on Terror, an operation being carried out by the                      Marxist co-opted governments of the West in alliance with the USSR and other Communist nations,              the purpose of the operation being to (1) destroy the prominence of the West in the eyes of the world,          where the West is seen (i) invading nations without cause; (ii) causing chaos around the globe; and (iii)          killing over one-million civilians and boasting of torture; (2) close off non-Russian supplies of oil for          export, thereby increasing the price of oil, the higher price allowing oil exporting Russia to maintain            economic stability while she modernizes and increases her military forces; (3) destroy the United                  States Armed Forces via the never-ending War on Terror; the ultimate purpose of the aforementioned            to (4) bring about the demise of the United States in the world, opening up a political void to be filled          by a new pan-national entity composed of Europe and Russia (replacing the European Union), a union          From the Atlantic to Vladivostok (see Vladimir Putin's article's subheading, The Europe factor ); which          will (5) see the end of NATO. 

    5.  A Pictorial Presentation Of The Fraudulent Collapse Of The USSR...

(a) The Emblem of the Soviet Union atop the Russian State Duma building

Notice that the State Emblem of the Soviet Union is illuminated at night for clear viewing by Muscovites, however the coat of arms of the Russian Federation, situated above the door between the fourth and fifth floors, isn't illuminated, though either side of the heraldic design is illuminated for no apparent purpose other than to highlight the heraldic design's obsolescence.

(b) High atop the facade of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs building, the State Emblem of the Soviet Union is Illuminated with pinpoint precision at night

(c) The State Emblem of the Soviet Union atop the Russian Ministry of Defense building, including other Soviet era iconography

(d) Soviet Red Stars atop Kremlin towers remain where Stalin placed them in 1935

(e) Moscow's Central Post Office employees are still in the dark as to the "collapse" of the USSR in late 1991

Why, you ask? Click the link for the answer

(f) Headquarters of the Russian Federal Security Service, and the Soviet Union's security service, the KGB. Note the State Emblem of the Soviet Union still over the main door (click picture to enlarge), and hammer and sickle logo still above the clock. And here’s the Lubyanka at nightime. Also note illumination of hammer & sickle, and enhanced illumination of area above the main door, where the office of the KGB chief was located (third floor).

Engels Air Force Base is east of Engels city, where the two long parallel lines are located

Notice that Engels city and adjacent air base were named after Marxist "hero" Friedrich Engels, but the names were never changed after Russians were "liberated" from Soviet tyranny in December 1991 with the "collapse" of the USSR.

(h) The province of Leningrad Oblast  is still  named in honor of the great Russian persecutor (and Marxist "hero"), who despised and cruelly stamped out Russian culture

(i) The province of Kaliningrad Oblast is still named after Marxist "hero" Mikhail Kalinin, nominal head of the USSR, 1922-1946

(j) Red Star, the Official newspaper of the Soviet Union's Ministry of Defense. Note the Soviet era title (Red Star) and the four Soviet emblems (representing awards) to the left of the masthead, the outer emblem displaying Vladimir Lenin.

Now, click the link to view the official newspaper of the Russian Ministry of DefenseThe newspaper is still called Red Star(!) and still has the four Soviet emblems with Vladimir Lenin still present!

(k) Soviet roundel still on Russian military aircraft

(l) Soviet era Communist emblem (the Soviet red star) still attached to the bows of Russian naval vessels
