alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]


1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike .


  1. Now Vance you can't be serious? Lets take a deep breathe and get real here.
    All these steps are so mis-conceived and pure fear-mongering from a right-wing propagandist Dr. John Coleman a conspiracy theorist.
    Some of these that you point out is just contradictions or completely false..
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."..
    When its a Government Public school then yes there should be separation, the founding forefathers wrote this in the constitution. The Founding Forefathers weren't all Christians some even stood strongly against the power of the catholic church. Look up Thomas Paine or Jefferson quotes..

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
    You don't even understand art history and to claim abstract art is a form communism is just pure non-sense. One of the leading abstract painters of that era was an American by the name of Jackson Pollock. Look at his personal history he was no communist he was all about America and American culture.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    You think this is a new concept?? Ha Ha Lets get real here, our corporate media has been owned and controlled since the industrial revolution. Watch the documentary "Century of Self" by Adam Curtis

    And The list goes on........ Who ever gave you this list is a fear-monger spreading dis-information.
    You have this false impression of what your government really is. Yes, The American Government started off as a grand idea of states having more power then one federal government but that was short lived. I really think you need to study the 20th century a little more and see how we became the super state of the world. I hope you realize that right now at this moment in time we have 700 military bases in 177 different countries (This fact is from Ron Paul The Revolution Manifesto :Chapter Foreign Policy) and that didn't just happen overnight. The U.S is the only country who is allowed to have such power. Imagine if China had even say 300 military bases in 50 countries, U.S. would automatically declare war against The Republic of China in the name of democracy. Can you see the hypocrisy?

    We are guilty of many things to third world countries in the name of cheap labor and protecting special interest. Look at N.A.F.T.A this was made by our so called free industry Corporations. So they can go to Mexico\South America to get cheaper labor and not have to pay union men and women of the states.

    Do you even realize how many of our giant corporations have labor plants in Vietnam? After the Vietnam war, where we destroyed their local economy and culture. We had multiple giant corporations go there to build plants in Vietnam to basically enslave local peasants to work in labor plants for 10 cents a day. So how does your Jesus feel about exploiting the poor in different countries and oppressing them to keep working so American Corporations can keep reeling in extreme profits off cheap labor?

    So this one world order has been in placed by the U.S during all of the 20th century, this is nothing new. It just becoming alot more clearer... So don't just recklessly blame "these damn commies"..... You need to really study all of the 20th century when America Became the new super Empire and how...

  2. Bill

    Look whats happening right now.
    Time to wake up friend......Vance

  3. It appears to me, Times are a Changing. The discussions should be around what we all feel in common with, and not the divisions. Didn't we say that one time before me, in a bit of a different way. My point being, it would be a best practice of governance, for our futures, may be truly thinking through our difficulties with a cooperative eye concentrating upon our commonalities.

  4. Hi, Vance. I congratulate you for your efforts to warn people of the danger of Communism. Do you know whether Mr. Coleman's book is available in a blog for free download?
