The following was recently distributed via the 'conspiracy nation'
list. I hope that the majority of the marxism list retain enough
sense of humour to enjoy it as much as I did. The weird format is the
way I got it.

Probably nothing new to most readers, but this is a very informative
book, especially for people viewing current events in light of the
Fatima prophecies.

       Communism Alive and Menacing, KGB Defector Claims

                        The Perestroika Deception
                                   by Anatoliy Golitsyn

                            Commentary by Cornelia R. Ferreira

             Diehard fans of the theory that Communism is dead will
             not like this book, whose stated goal is to help such
             people recover from their blindness . The Perestroika
             Deception describes with unmerciful clarity the confusion
             and errors that have been engendered in the world and in
             the Church by the deceitful Communist strategy of
             perestroika, under whose reformist guise rebellions and
             wars have been promoted, and the Church persecuted, in
             order that the Communist goal of world domination is
             finally achieved. In other words, what it unintentionally
             depicts are the very events prophesied by Our Lady of
             Fatima if the Collegial Consecration of Russia is not

             Anatoliy Golitsyn s 1984 book, New Lies for Old,
             forecast, with 94% accuracy, all the recent changes in
             the Communist Bloc, including the economic and political
             reforms, the rise of Solidarity, the removal of the
             Berlin Wall, the reunification of Germany and the
             collapseof the Soviet Union. The Perestroika Deception,
             with extensive documentation, reinforces his contention
             in New Lies for Old that all the changes were
             meticulously planned years in advance. It explains how
             they fit into the devious Leninist strategy for achieving
             with Western cooperation a one-world Communist government
             orNew World Social Order , run by the Russians and
             Chinese, by 2000 A.D. It also analyzes current events up
             to the Chechnya struggle and forecasts and developments.

             Golitsyn was a high-ranking KGB official involved in
             espionage and counter-espionage who defected to the
             Unites States in 1961. Convinced that Western
             interpretations of developments in the Communist Bloc
             were seriously flawed, he combined his study of Soviet
             long-range strategy with his inside knowledge of KGB and
             Leninist thinking in New Lies of Old. For over thirty
             years he has submitted memoranda to the CIA, in which he
             has provided very accurate analyses and forecasts of Bloc
             developments. The Perestroika Deception is a collection
             of dated memoranda covering the years 1984 to 1995.

                                      The Great Deception

             This book vindicates those politically incorrect
             Catholics who have been insisting that Russia has not
             converted because the Consecration has not been properly
             done. Its urgent message is that the West s failure to
             recognize that perestroika is atreacherousploy threatens
             the very continuation of Western civilizationas
             perestroika is intended to bring about the political and
             physical demise of Western democracies.

             Golitsyn provides irrefutable proof that perestroika
             orrestructuringis not a 1985 Gorbachev invention, but the
             final phase of a plan formulated during 1958-1960.
             Perestroika refers to the restructuring, not just of the
             Soviet system, but of the entire free world. It is the
             Soviet strategy for a Second October Revolution , a
             temporary, non-violent World Revolution involving
             controlled fake democratization and strategic
             disinformation. Communist leaders envisaged the
             convergence of Communist/socialist systems with
             restructured capitalist systems into the One-World
             Communist Government. They realized that convergence
             could only be achieved by transforming Stalinism into a
             more attractive formofCommunist democracy . The KGB was
             reorganized to play a key role in implementing the
             strategy . Thirty years of rehearsal in countries such as
             Czechoslovakia, Poland and Romania prepared the ground
             for the final phase perestroika and the controlled false
             democratizationof the USSR itself. That it is false is
             confirmed by Eduard Shevardnadze, Georgian president and
             a long-time Western friend . As late as 1993, he admitted
             that elections do not equal democracy.

             Perestroika is a game of mind-control based on the
             principles of Italian Communist Antonio Gramsci
             (1891-1937), who devised a new, improved model of
             Marxist-Leninism. Gorbachev was chosen to launch it.
             Perestroika is psychological warfare, involving the use
             of cooperation-blackmail . A theatrical display of
             democratism[is] designed to convince the West that a
             decisive break with the past has taken place.

             This encourages Western governments to collaborate with
             the former Communists. At the same time, there is a
             threat of a return to the Cold War or worse if the West
             does not cooperate. Golitsyn demonstrates that every
             crisis , from Tienamen Square to the fake August91 coup
             attempt to Chechnya, has been deliberately designed
             according to the cooperation-blackmail equation. The new
             forces of democracy are shown locked in mortal combat
             with the conservative hard-liners and the West is told
             that only its cooperation and large infusions of aid will
             help the fledgling democracies to survive. The Communist
             price for peace is thus the restructuring of Western
             thinking and policies.

             Soviet control of the Western mind is achieved through
             manipulation of the media, deceptive use of language, and
             the destabilization of society through corruption.
             According to the Gramscian formula, the Christian
             religion has to be secularized, and culture and morals
             corrupted, for the Revolution to succeed peaceably. With
             Western society deconstructed , the Western mind will be
             more receptive to collaboration with the enemy.

                                   Part of the Long-term Plan

             Golitsyn demonstrates that the present strategy is a
             continuation by the Russians and Chinese, with Gramsci's
             improvements , of the New Economic Policy (NEP) devised
             by Lenin in the 1920s Lenin had said "the lie is sacred
             and deception will be our principal weapon." The NEP was
             hailed by the West as a retreat from Communism, but it
             was a major deception. Pope Pius XI, in his 1937
             encyclical On Atheistic Communism, warned that Communism
             was not converting, but he was ignored.

             The NEP won for the Soviets aid from the West and helped
             to strengthen Russian Communism. Stalin continued the
             subterfuge to the point of showing some religious
             tolerance and dissolving the Communist International;
             however, his later repressions discredited Communism and
             impeded its global expansion. His condemnation by modern
             Communist leaders does not represent their break with
             Communism, but their anger that he hurt their cause .

             Khruschev and Mao decided to abolish Stalinism and
             restore Leninism. A scientific study of the NEP was
             undertaken in 1957. In 1960, the Institute for the Study
             of the USA and Canada was set up in Moscow to help
             Soviets research these target societies. At the end of
             1960, the long-range strategy based on the NEP was
             adopted by thirteen Communist Bloc states, including

             Perestroika, the final phase of the strategy is meant to
             conquer the West from within by KGB-controlled dissidents
             and opposition movements and disinformation about the
             alleged existence of liberals and conservatives,
             reformers vs .hardliners . Glasnost or openness would
             combine accurate information with disinformation. The KGB
             was to create and control Communist Bloc officials of all
             political stripes. Leaders since 1960, including
             Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Rutskoi, Shevardnadze, Zhirinovsky
             and Primakov, have all been collaborators in carrying out
             the plan. Their power struggles are fictional.

                              The Infiltration of the Upper Echelons

             KGB agents of influence have infiltrated Western elite
             circles, cultivating politicians, businessmen,
             scientists, religious leaders, journalists, movie
             directors, environmentalists, and so forth. Agents have
             included dissident like Andrei Sakharov and diplomats
             such as the Soviet Ambassador to Washington Anatoliy
             Dobrynin. Educational, scientific and cultural exchanges,
             as well as thousands of joint projects in all fields, aid
             Russian research, influence and recruitment. Whilst
             forging bonds with Western liberals, these techniques
             also identify and neutralize active anti-Communists. They
             are ridiculed as enemies of peace or removed from office.
             Assassination is always a possibility, and Golitsyn
             suspects that was the case with Pope John Paul I; but he
             explains why the evidence does not support the common
             belief that the KGB was involved in the shooting of Pope
             John Paul II. (Interestingly, in 1994, a claim that
             high-level Vatican officials were responsible was quickly

             Liberalization of Eastern Europe was meant to promote
             disarmament, the dissolution of NATO, the American
             withdrawal from Europe, and a neutral, socialist Europe,
             a Common European Home from the Atlantic to the Urals ,
             as Gorbachev and Shevardnadze have described it. If NATO
             is not dissolved, then its effectiveness is to be reduced
             by penetration (note Partnership for Peace and East-West
             joint projects like Bosnia, which also help convergence),
             by reduction of its purely military role of defending its
             members (it is now peacekeeping in a non-member state),
             and by the acceptance of former European adversaries as
             members. Moscow s opposition to the latter is a
             dialectical tactic as such membership would actually
             increase penetration. One goal of the Chechnyan barbarity
             is to scare Russia s neighbors and strengthen the
             argument for their protection through NATO membership.

             A major penetration success is Gorbachev s American
             bureau, which allows him to personally mobilize liberals
             in the cause of disarmament. Four months before the
             August 91coup attempt (showing that his job change from
             President to private citizen was anticipated in light of
             the coming planned collapse of the USSR), Gorbachev
             established, on American soil, the International
             Department of the Central Committee of the Communist
             party of the Soviet Union known to us as the Gorbachev
             Foundation/USA. It operates out of a disused military
             base in San Francisco.

             Poland has played a large part in the disarmament
             campaign. Solidarity was planned during 1958-1960 by the
             Bloc, and Golitsyn correctly predicted each stage in its
             evolution. There is clear evidence that the Polish
             Communist Party formed the original core and leadership
             of Solidarity, whilst Lech Walesa cooperated all along.
             He has also helped broaden the Communist base in trade
             unions across the world, enabling them to be manipulated
             against Western interests.

             In order to increase Communist representation and
             influence in the UN, the European Union and international
             financial organizations, the Soviet Union was
             deliberately converted into independent republics.
             However, by 1994, all the republics, including the Baltic
             States, were controlled by Communists, but now within the
             fiefdom of Russia. This strategy mirrors the successful
             policy of Lenin, who gave a temporary independence to
             some republics in order to promote trade with the West.

             The collapse of the Soviet Union serves several other
             purposes. One is gaining control of Middle East oil. The
             new democratic image of the Muslim republics of the
             Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is being
             exploited to develop alliances with fundamentalists in
             Arab countries so that pro-Western rulers can be replaced
             with Russian-controlled fundamentalists. Radical changes
             in Israel s position are part of the strategy. Nuclear
             weaponry is being channeled through the republics to
             Iran, whilst Russia, a signatory to the Nuclear
             Non-Proliferation Treaty, looks innocent. Turkey, a NATO
             member, is already a major partner of Russia , purchasing
             Russian military equipment and cooperating with it (thus
             weakening NATO).

             The United States has been unable to detect the
             long-range Communist strategy largely because of
             disinformation provided by KGB and Chinese spies who have
             penetrated the CIA since 1958. Perestroika and glasnost
             so confused American intelligence that it became
             dependent upon Russian sources. The Ames case, as
             reported by Time (November 13, 1995), confirms Golitsyn s
             contention about the confusion in U.S. intelligence
             services, which have accepted KGB plants as genuine
             sources. Aldrich Ames spied for Russia from the start of
             perestroika (1985) to 1994, helping to send ten valuable
             CIA agents to their death. This betrayal of American
             trust in perestroika prompts Golitsyn' s comment: The
             Ames case shows how blind and bankrupt is the American
             policy of aid to the new régime in Russia.

                            Communism's Manipulation of the Church

             Perestroika strategists did not overlook the use of
             clergy as agents, nor the use of religious relaxation to
             further disarmament. In 1985, Golitsyn reported that
             Russian Orthodox priests are controlled and directed by
             the KGB in order to promote cooperation between Soviet
             churches and Western Catholics and Protestants to help
             establish a united front for disarmament (peace and
             justice movements?) and convergence. (Note that the
             Russian Orthodox Church joined the World Council of
             Churches in 1961.)

             Unfortunately, in order to have Russian Orthodox
             observers at Vatican II, the Holy See promised not to
             attack Communism. This 1962 Vatican-Moscow Agreement,
             which still seems to be in force, is a form of
             persecution. It has silenced the Church and allowed the
             errors of Communism especially perestroika to invade both
             it and society unchallenged. Golitsyn notes the
             observation made by the outspoken anti-Communist Russian
             General Volkogonov that perestroika would not have been
             possible without a secret understanding between
             Gorbachev, Jaruzelski [Communist President of Poland
             until Walesa took over in 1990] and the Pope . In the
             absence of any elaboration, one can only speculate that
             the secret understanding is the continuation of the
             Agreement with the added twist of cooperation-blackmail:
             Vatican silence about Marxism would guarantee religious
             and civil liberalization, starting with Poland.

             In 1990, Golitsyn warned of another aspect of religious

             "The Vatican should reverse its mistaken support for the
             renewal of the Communist régimes ... It fails to
             understand that greater apparent official tolerance of
             religion ... is accompanied by a secret drive to increase
             Party and KGB penetration of the Catholic and other
             churches and to use agents therein for political and
             strategic purposes ... As part of the programme to
             destroy religion from within, the KGB, in the late 1950s
             [other former Communists say 1930s], started sending
             dedicated young Communists to ecclesiastical academies
             and seminaries to train them as future church leaders.
             These young Communists joined the Church ... at the call
             of the Communist Party ... to implement its general line
             [unchanged policy] in the struggle against religion."

             "In the present phase, secret agents in the Catholic and
             other churches are being used to implement Communist

             "The extent of the deception can be gauged by Gorbachev s
             comment to his Communist cadres in 1987, after he had
             launched perestroika and religious relaxations: There
             must be no let-up in the war against religion because as
             long as religion exists Communism cannot prevail. We must
             intensify the obliteration of all religions."

             Golitsyn condemns the participation of Communist leaders
             at Summits and their visits to the Vatican (which started
             in 1967) because these meetings give them credibility and
             the opportunity for manipulation. Remarkably, in 1991, he
             quoted one of our popes in order to remind the Catholic
             Church of her duty:

             "The statement by ... Pope Pius XII [he must mean Pius
             XI] concerning the incompatibility and irreconcilability
             of Communism and religion is as correct as ever. The
             Vatican should reaffirm this dictum and should use its
             influence and divisions [Stalin s sarcastic term for
             loyal Catholic groups] to defend Western values from the
             new, deadly but hidden Communist assault (Golitsyn's
             emphasis). Unfortunately, because of her silence, Gramsci
             s strategy of perverting the Catholic Church is in full
             swing. The religion of God is being replaced with the
             religion of Man (and Heaven with an earthly, decadent
             utopia), facilitating Communist control of
             de-Christianized minds. Golitsyn assesses the
             consequences of détente for the Church: Never in its
             history since Nero has Christianity faced such a threat
             of possible destruction."

                                    Free-Marketeers, Beware

             He has a similar warning for industrialists and
             financiers involved in joint ventures with the
             Communists. They are expediting the revival of their
             adversaries ; while they may make some profits from joint
             ventures, in the long run they will be eliminated as a
             class through taxes and other means.

             The grounds for rejecting perestroika are simple:

             [The moral grounds are that] a system which has killed 20
             million of its people (50 million if ... China [is]
             included), ... and brought ... misery to the peoples of
             the Soviet empire, does not deserve to be renewed. The
             American people are under no moral obligation to help
             with the reconstruction of such a plainly evil system.

             The pragmatic ground ... is the need to protect ... the
             American system from restructuring and convergence with
             the Soviet system and to save the American people from
             the blood baths and reeducation camps which such
             convergence will ultimately bring. Thus, there should be
             no summit meetings, no credit and no western technology
             for ... Communist countries ... Communist régime[s]
             should be left ... to solve their problems without
             Western help since they claim that their system is the
             best model for the whole world ...Communists should be
             told:... don t ask us for ... help: we are not going to
             finance our own funeral .

             The whole point of Golitsyn's writings has been to warn
             Western leaders not to be fooled by perestroika. He
             notes, however, that they have been fooled and wonders
             why they have ignored his warnings, even though his
             analyses have a 94% accuracy rating and Britain and the
             United States have honored him for his contribution to
             Western security . One is forced to ask has it ever
             occurred to Golitsyn that perhaps many of these leaders
             are not fooled, but are following orders? Is he aware of
             the role of Freemasonry in world affairs? That it is
             Masonry that desires the One-World Socialist Government?
             That Communism is merely its chief tool? That Masonry,
             financed by Western interests, built up Russian Communism
             and has kept it going in its various metamorphic forms
             for over seventy years?

                                         A Power Elite?

             In the last two pages of his book, in a memorandum dated
             October 1, 1993, Golitsyn does hint at a secret
             controlling force behind Russian Communism, but he lacks
             the facilities to study how it might be operating . He
             believes it may be functioning under cover of some front
             organization, such as the National Security Council. He
             advises the West to watch for signs of this group but he
             gives no indication that he thinks there might be
             parallel secret groups in the West. (Are even KGB
             officials kept in the dark about Freemasonry?)

             Not merely is Russia the tool of Freemasonry, but it is
             also the instrument chosen by God to punish a sinful
             world, as Our Lady of Fatima warned. Anatoliy Golitsyn s
             painstaking research shows we are close to the
             fulfillment of Our Lady s prediction. As he soberly
             notes, the sword of Damocles is hanging over Western
             democracies, yet they are oblivious to it.

             Because The Perestroika Deception is a collection of
             memoranda, there is much repetition. This can be tedious,
             but it greatly helps one to see the deception unfolding
             day by day. Since the memoranda were directed to CIA
             officials, Golitsyn probably assumed they would be
             familiar with the names and events mentioned; thus,
             titles, dates or historical details are generally
             lacking. This can cause difficulties for the layman . The
             tight" print of the book, especially in the footnotes,
             also makes for difficult reading. However, these
             footnotes, added before publication, contain vital
             up-to-date information substantiating Golitsyn s claims.
             The comprehensive, annotated Index helps make the book an
             invaluable geopolitical resource. It should be required
             reading of the entire Catholic hierarchy.
