It’s a great brainwashing process, which goes very slow[ly] and is divided [into] four basic stages. The first one [is] demoralization; it takes from 1520 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which [is required] to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy. In other words, Marxist-Leninist ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students, without being challenged, or counter-balanced by the basic values of Americanism (American patriotism).

The result? The result you can see. Most of the people who graduated in the sixties (drop-outs or half-baked intellectuals) are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, [and the] educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated; they are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind[s], even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, these people … the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To [rid] society of these people, you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and common sense people, who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.

Yuri Bezmanov, KGB Defector in an interview with G Edward Griffin

In our world today, we have a denial of God and a manufacturing of atheism in our school systems and universities in the western world. The school systems and universities are systematic factories that pump the youth’s brains full of communist propaganda and atheism as a religion. When America was the greatest country in the world, America’s schools preached freedom, capitalist ideals, and Judeo-Christian values in the classroom that were the backbone of our great western civilization.

We have since torn out the brains of our civilization —the capitalist philosophy—and ripped out the backbone—Judeo Christian values. Now we have a spineless, brainless body that runs on communist philosophy and atheism. This is one of the major sources of our weak men of today. Men with no fathers, raised by the state alone who go to school in a communist factory and worship nothing and believe in nothing.

“A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything” – Malcolm X

To replace God in the new western philosophy, Man now worships new gods in the western world. The new gods in our weakened western society are:

The New Gods of Man

  1. Money: Fiat currency, fake value, with no real value
  2. The government: Collectivist, communist philosophy, no real value to the individual man but rather the collective group
  3. Science: Synthetic Intelligence modified by the universities for its own agendas, its benefit to an individual man very little, but rather to further larger agendas
  4. Atheism: The belief in nothing

With the proliferation of these new gods, what we lose in return is:

  1. Real value: Families, loving marriages, children
  2. A freedom-based government where man is free to survive or fall on his own volition, ownership mentality disappears and victim mentality takes over where man relies on the government for survival instead of his own brain.
  3. Infinite intelligence, God, and man’s relationship with God and his power to reach his full potential
  4. Judeo-Christian philosophy, aka religion, which has built and created the greatness of a free America and much of the western world

“That’s L.A. (Los Angeles)—they worship everything and they value nothing.”—Sebastian Wilder in La la Land

Like the Native Americans who traded real value—the island of Manhattan to the white man for a stipend of glass beads, baubles, and mostly worthless money—we today are trading our real value. We are trading our families, our marriages, our children, our freedom, our infinite intelligence, our relationship with God, and our proven successful philosophy for a pile of worthless nonsense: fake money backed by nothing, a collectivist communist government that is systematically taking the good things out of life, junk science that is manipulated by the universities for ulterior agendas, and atheism that believes in nothing.

“Only when the last fish has been fished from the river and the last tree has been cut down will you realize that you cannot eat money” Native American Proverb

A man who believes nothing, will stand for nothing and over time he will eventually become nothing.

This is the trade that destroys the empire. It’s been slowly subverting western society since the 1940s and like a boiled frog, the temperature on the water has been slowly turned up one degree at a time and before the frog can realize that the water is too hot and jump out, the frog is boiled.

We are very close to becoming boiled frogs in today’s western civilization.

If the frog was cast into a bubbling boiling pot of hot water, it would shock his senses, and he would have the sense to reject the boiling water and jump out to reject the changes. But these social changes these changes are happening very slowly over 80 years and we, the frogs, have lost all perspective on what made us into a strong society and why it worked.

We are entering hard times with a population of weak men. The weak men of today are not here because it is their fault, the changes over the last 80 years have brought down the pillars of western philosophy and beliefs that made us strong.

We have traded our strength for weakness and this is our fatal error; it is philosophical battle, a spiritual battle, not a battle fought on the front lines with guns, bullets and bayonets. This is a battle fought within the heart of each man and the enemies are invisible, un-killable, and coming from all sides.

I see in the fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars, advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives, we’ve been all raised by television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t and we’re slowly learning that fact. and we’re very, very pissed off.

― Chuck PalahniukFight Club

The empire of America became great when the middle class began to appear and blossom in the early 1900s. One man, Henry Ford, was responsible for designing the assembly line and essentially creating the middle class. Henry Ford had the philosophy of paying his workers more so he could sell more cars; this was a brilliant idea and an idea that made America into the richest most prosperous country for a time.

What we have had since 1960 is a systematic destruction of the middle class. A nation is a first world nation when it has 3 classes—rich, middle class and poor. When the middle class disappears, the same nation becomes a third world nation with only rich and poor. As I write this book, America’s middle class is becoming endangered and will shortly be extinct, while other countries like China, Brazil, Russia, India, Mexico and other emerging markets are gaining middle classes.

The middle class was based on slightly higher wages, higher skilled labor, and value-added economies. The factories that used to make up America’s industrial strength were value-added businesses that created real value in the economy and America was a major exporter of added value.

Today the factories are gone and the rising countries mentioned above are gaining the factories that America lost. When the value-added jobs go, so does the middle class.

What we have instead now is a service economy where everyone performs a service but very little of what we produce is “value added” or product production. President Trump is trying to reverse this trend, but I’m not sure he can reverse the decades of damage since the 1970s.

The middle-class dream made America great because an average man could work hard, make money, be the man of the house, raise a family, own a home, own a car, raise his kids and be home from work in time for dinner. This middle-class dream is gone from America. No longer can an “average joe,” a working guy, “make it” in this country. As stated earlier in this book, a minimum wage worker can’t even afford to rent a two-bedroom apartment. What kind of message does this send? If you work here, you can’t afford to live here? This sounds like slavery and the third world instead of the beacon of hope and freedom that America used to be.

“That which is not good for the bee-hive cannot be good for the bees.” Marcus Aurelius

This trend is moving into a very dark place, we now see headlines from that read: No full-time minimum-wage worker can afford a 2-bedroom apartment in any US state. This just became a reality at the end of 2017. What’s next? The working people now must live as homeless?

The people cannot even afford to live, and we now have “tent cities” popping up in America. These are similar to the shanty towns that litter third-world countries in Africa. The third-world is coming to America, delivered straight to our door, and it’s coming fast.

Here is a list of “tent cities” that are named in the USA according to Wikipedia.

These are just the named tent cities that made it on to the list. Imagine how many unnamed or unlisted tent cities there are in the USA.

I cannot imagine how anyone would argue that these changes are good for western civilization. I can see no benefits to the populace living in tent cities on the side of the highway. The real problem with the destruction of the middle class is not a political one, but rather a problem with the monetary system itself.

Henry Ford, the father of the middle class, the richest, most powerful man in the world in his time and the main study behind life changing books like Think and Grow Rich has been attributed with saying:

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Henry Ford

What did Henry Ford understand about the monetary system that would make the nation revolt by tomorrow morning?

Let’s examine money vs. currency to find the answers from history. What we must understand about money is that the only real money in the world is gold. Gold has had constant value throughout history and constant purchasing power in real goods. For instance, in ancient Rome, a gentleman could take a 1-ounce gold coin and trade it for a fine toga, a haircut, and a pair of sandals.

In the modern world, a gentleman can take the same 1 ounce of gold and trade it in for a finely tailored suit, a haircut and fine pair of shoes.

And thus, in real purchasing power, gold has had a historical constant purchasing power. Gold is the only real money in the history of the world, all other forms of money are fake.

Until 1971, the US dollar was backed by gold. In August of that year, President Nixon announced that the US dollar would no longer follow the gold standard. When America was great, the American dollar was the world reserve currency and America had enough gold in its reserves so that anyone could take an American dollar and exchange it for real gold.

This was a powerful system, a brilliant system and a real system for which to store and transfer value.

And then the Vietnam War happened and countries around the world lost confidence in the United States, so they began trading in their US dollars for real gold. The treasury was starting to run out of gold, so President Nixon took the US off the gold standard and debased the currency.

Whenever a currency becomes debased, it’s value always reverts to its intrinsic value—zero at some point.

The Roman people were smart with their money. Roman men and women traded with real pieces of gold and silver, coins minted out of pure metal by the government. The Roman people handled gold and silver every day and knew the intrinsic weights of these metals. The Roman government did not dare to debase the currency because they knew they would be overthrown instantly by a militant population if they tampered with the real currency of the powerful empire.

Emperor Nero, one of the worst emperors in history, was the first Roman emperor to debase its currency. At a threat of killing the men working at the Roman mint and all their families, Nero had the middle sections of the silver coins hollowed out and replaced with an equal weight in lead. Nero then took the extra silver and built himself a luxurious new palace.

Does this story sound familiar?

In 2008 in the USA, the Wall Street bankers had screwed up their banking system by trading derivatives on value that did not exist—derivatives backed by values in homes that were overinflated, they had dug their own grave by violating the rules of value and sound business.

President Obama should have let the banks fail and let the economy crash to reset, but instead he robbed the people through quantitative easing, aka printing money. They turned on the printing presses and began to print bailouts for the unethical bankers, the bad banks were saved, the Wall Street boys made huge bonuses (built themselves palaces) and the people started to trade a weaker currency, just like in Rome. It’s important to note that when Emperor Nero debased the currency, that was the beginning of the major decline of the empire. Obama and his debasement of the currency in 2008 is a major marking for a decline of the American empire.

A real, strong leader should have let the banks fail, charged the bankers with treason, and publicly shot or hung them as criminals in Times Square in NYC. What really happened however is the criminal bankers got away—criminals who robbed the country, robbed the people, robbed the currency, and got even richer. In America if you rob a 7/11 you go to jail, but if you rob the country you get rich!

Here are the effects of gold and currency since 1968. In 1968, the minimum wage was 31.31.



Price of Gold in USD



Minimum Wage USA



Hours to Earn Gold

31.45 Hours

174.48 Hours

If it took a young man working at McDonalds with no education, no skills, no experience 31.45 hours to earn a piece of gold in 1968, in 2014 that exact same man, still working at McDonald’s with no education, no skills, no experience would now take 174.48 hours of labor to earn that same piece of gold. Assuming a 2,000-hour work year, here is the decline in real purchasing power for the average minimum wage worker since 1968 when indexed USD to gold.

1968 Minimum Wage Purchasing Power vs. 2018 minimum wage purchasing power in the USA

40 hours a week of work for 50 weeks of the year, 2 weeks off is 2000 hours per year






Minimum Wage USA




Gold Price 1oz USD




40 hour work week in Money $




40 hour work week in Gold oz




40 hour work week in USD indexed to 2018 Gold Price




Monthly pay in 2018 purchasing power USD




Annual pay in 2018 purchasing power USD




So according to the math above, if the workers had continued to be paid in gold like they were in 1968 right before going off the gold standard, annual minimum wage should be around $103,328.65 to keep up with the same purchasing power that a minimum wage burger flipper at McDonalds would have had with zero training, zero education, zero skills. Yes, America was indeed a great country when the lowest skilled person was making $103,328.65 per year and getting two weeks off for vacation.

A $103,328.65 annual minimum wage did make America great indeed. Perhaps Donald Trump’s presidential slogan “make America great again” is relevant?

Here are the 2018 purchasing power numbers. A worker today on minimum wage is only making $13,920.00 and thus can’t even afford to rent a 2 bedroom apartment. Do you see the problem with this? This is not a political power problem, it’s not a Democrat or Republican problem. It’s a money system problem like Henry Ford warned us. Hard times do create strong men, this relationship with purchasing power, gold and money is rigged against anyone who works for money.

Let’s examine what kind of job and education you would need today to keep up with a burger flipper from 1968:

So burger flipper guy would have been the 26th best job on this list at: $103,328.65 in 2018’s purchasing power. Keep in mind, burger flipper guy has no education, no student debt, no skills; he just shows up to work and runs the grill. Note that McDonalds today to run the grill is much harder, the menu has over 100 items now, back then the menu was much easier to make as well.

So what does it cost to make the incomes above in education?

Below is the average costs of tuition fees at US universities in 2017 and 2018. This is grim.


A student in the US for a four-year degree, which is now worthless, is going to be nearly $100,000 in debt. He can never bankrupt his way out of—it follows him for life—and then because the money is inflated he gets taxed at a higher tax bracket than people in 1968. He has to be highly skilled, a smart worker and do complex jobs just to have the same purchasing power as a 1968 McDonalds burger flipper. Student debt is a modern bond into slavery; many students can never get out from such bondage, not even through bankruptcy.

This is part of what is crippling the young men in this country and forcing young women to work alongside men just to live. In 1968 the women could stay home and look after the family, the men could pay the bills. Today it takes a man, a woman and credit cards just to stay afloat, such is the current state of our corrupt fiat monetary system – an evil system that must be abolished!

So does this trend of purchasing power decreasing over time get better or worse over time?

The answer is, it will get worse until the average man can’t buy bread.

This story has already happened throughout history in countries around the world. When the average man is so poor that he can no longer buy bread—a revolution happens.

In Russia in 1917, the average man couldn’t buy bread and he was protesting in the streets. The Russian Czar, the emperor, sent his military to shoot the protestors. The military was demoralized from losing World War I and shared the sentiment of hardship with the civilian protesters, the military turned on the Czar and 11 assassins were sent to kill the czar and his family of 11 people including women, children, and babies. The Czar and his family were brutally murdered without mercy by the 11 assassins.

Following the assassination of the Czar, the military took over the government in Russia and they plunged into 79 years of communism until 1991, when the Soviet Union dissolved. Those 79 years were a brutal regime, and the death toll in Soviet Russia is estimated at around 20–100 million, but it’s almost impossible to determine how many people actually died.

If an estimated 20 to 100 million people were murdered by the brutal regime in communist Russia, then how many others died under other communist regimes?

The Black Book of Communism,

Estimated number of victims[edit]

In the introduction, editor Stéphane Courtois states that “Communist regimes… turned mass crime into a full-blown system of government.”[4]:2According to Courtois, the death toll amounts to 94 million.[4]:4 The breakdown of the number of deaths given by Courtois is as follows:

Courtois writes that Communist regimes are responsible for a greater number of deaths than any other political ideal or movement, including Nazism. The statistics of victims include deaths through executions, man-made hunger, deportations, and forced labor.

A plunge into communism happens when the people are sold that communism is better than their current form of government, usually a monarchy or tyranny. You can see from the stats above that communist regimes are brutal, major killers of people and the countries listed above are not real producers of value on the world stage. Would you want to move to any of those countries to live for a long period of time? The answer is usually “no.”

Communism enriches the people who are in government and impoverishes the people by stealing from them. Sadly, we are moving towards a communist regime in our philosophy and current attitudes. This weakening of philosophy is a cause of the weak men in our society and if these philosophies persist in our universities and schools, we will one day have full blown brutal communism in the western world.

Former Soviet-era deception expert Yuri Bezmenov laid out a blueprint for communist subversion of any targeted nation back in the 1980s. That blueprint looks remarkably like what Obama and the radical left just pulled off over the last eight years… with the help of the lying mainstream media and cultural subversion via movies, TV, Jon Stewart, fake news, false flags and an overthrow of the public education system (Common Core, an anti-education indoctrination / obedience scheme).

Bezmenov is well known for saying:

The highest art of warfare is not to fight at all… but to subvert anything of value in the country of your enemy until such time that the perception of reality of your enemy is screwed up to such an extent that he does not perceive you as an enemy, and that your system, your civilization and your ambitions look to your enemy as an alternative, if not desirable then at least feasible. That’s the ultimate purpose, the final stage of subversion, after which you can simply take your enemy without a single shot being fired.

The four stages of subversion—from Yuri Bezmenov, Soviet KGB subversion expert

  1. Demoralization. It takes 15–20 years to demoralize a society. It includes influencing (infiltration, propaganda, etc.) of various areas where public opinion is shaped: Religion, educational system, social life, administration, law enforcement systems, military and labor-employer relations.

Exploit the people within the society who are ideologically opposed to the system. Use small groups of agents from foreign nations. Distract people from real faith and replace it with artificial faiths in other systems.

In education, distract them from learning something constructive, pragmatic and efficient. Instead of mathematics, chemistry, history, teach them sexuality, home economy, anything to distract.

In social life, replace traditionally established institutions with fake organizations. Take away the initiative from people, take away the natural links between individuals and replace them with bureaucratically controlled systems. Establish social workers’ institutions ruled by bureaucracy. Eliminate the family and replace the main concern with the paycheck from the government.

In government, replace elected officials with un-elected bureaucrats who control the people.

In the major media like the New York Times, you don’t have to be an excellent journalist. You have to be exactly a mediocre journalist.

For the power structure: It is slowly eroded by those who do not have qualifications nor the will of the people.

Law enforcement: Put into place a slow substitution of basic moral principles, where someone who used to be a criminal is now considered a victim.

Labor relations: Destroy the traditionally established links of bargaining between employer and employee. Obedient workers follow their leaders.

Democracy is not a system of equality. It is a system where diverse people of different backgrounds have the chance to compete and thrive.

  1. Destabilization. Destabilize all the accepted institutions and organizations of your enemy.

There is no crime if a professor introduces a course of communism or Marxism into a California college.

The radicalization of negotiations between labor and employers. “Normalizing” violent protests.

The media places itself in opposition to society, to alienate the people.

Subversive “sleepers” now become leaders in society and actively include themselves in the political process. Now, homosexuals make it a political issue to “demand human rights” and instigate violent clashes. Black against white. It doesn’t matter, it’s about creating antagonistic clashes. This is destabilization.

The sleepers are KGB agents. They become leaders to destabilize the targeted nation. Thus, the agent is already a respected citizen of the United States. He even gets money from the government for his struggle labeled “human rights.”

  1. Crisis. The process starts when the legitimate bodies of power cannot function anymore. Instead, artificial bodies are injected into society, such as non-elected committees. They claim power on how to run your life. If power is denied to them, they take it by force. They are often half-baked intellectuals from Harvard or somewhere, they think they know the answers to social problems.

The population at large is looking for a savior to solve the crisis that has been artificially created. They call for socialist government, centralized power. A savior is needed. The savior is then provided as the foreign nation, or the sleeper agents, they call it a revolution. They say, “I will lead you.”

The two alternatives here are: 1) Civil war. 2) Invasion.

  1. Normalization. This stage is to make the subversion results seem “normal” to the people. “Your country is normalized.”

At this point, the workers don’t demand a revolution anymore. This is stabilizing the country by force. Activists, liberals, social workers, homosexuals, professors and Marxists are being eliminated because they are not needed anymore.

The new owners need stability to exploit the nation and take advantage of the victory. The Marxists shoot their own revolutionaries.

Once the subverted culture is “normalized,” the only way to reverse the course of the country is through military intervention.

The most difficult and simplest answer against subversion is to start it before the “demoralization” stage. Bring back religion to restore stability to society. (Halt “cultural Marxism” from marching forward.)

As part of normalization, allow the criminals to have “civil rights” and bring crisis to the country. To defend against this, do not allow them to take political power… do not elect them into power. It must be driven into the heads of the American voters that a person like that is an enemy of the state.

Restriction of certain freedoms would prevent sliding into crisis. To curb unlimited power of the trade unions would save the economy from collapse. To introduce a law to stop private companies of raping public opinions in the direction of consumerism. No company must have a right to force you into buying more unless you want.

Demoralization is the easiest thing to reverse. Restrict the import of propaganda. The unrestrained import of Soviet journalists… it has to be stopped. They won’t be offended, they will respect America more. My colleague appears on Nightline and Ted Koppel asks him, “What do you think?” What can he think? He is a propaganda mouthpiece for the Soviet empire.

The process of demoralization will not start at all if the country prevents the importation of foreign ideology. You don’t have to shoot every foreigner… but when he offers you junk in the disguise of shiny something, you have to tell him, “No. We have our own junk.”

If the country is strong enough to stop the importation of ideas which are foreign, then the whole chain of subversion can be prevented.

Many societies throughout history collapsed the moment they lost religion. The idea of human beings as intelligent, moral agents of God can prevent collapse. But all the technology and computers will not prevent collapse. No one will fight to defend “2+2=4″ but millions will fight to protect God and religious faith.

The answer to ideological subversion is very simple. You don’t have to shoot people. You simply have to have faith and prevent subversion… not to be a victim of subversion. Strike not with force but with the superiority of your intellect.

So there you have it. We are in stage 3 subversion in the western world as outlined by Yuri Bezmenov, Soviet KGB subversion expert. The western men have been made weak, the family has been destroyed, women have been made into lesser men and taken away from their sacred purpose and jobs, money has been debased, religion has been marginalized and moved to the fringes and politics has become a circus. The next steps are 1) Civil war or 2) Invasion.

Rome was invaded by barbarians after a civil war and split into east and west.

History is just the same story over and over again with different costumes. What is happening in America already happened in Russia nearly 100 years ago. What is happening in America already happened in Rome. The fall of Russia and the fall of Rome are just echoes of the same story happening over and over again to empires throughout history. It starts with making the men weak and then hard times set in. Good times create weak men, weak men create hard times, and hard times create strong men.

You might think that subversion is conspiracy theory, you might still deny the fact that our society is being subverted by outside philosophies and undermined in values, you might think “that can never happen here,” but subversion has already been used in North America to wipe out the ruling group of people and take their land and everything valuable to them.

This has been a free sample chapter from my book “Hard Times Create Strong Men” you can find here:
