The 1958 “Psychological Warfare” Plan Playing Out Before Us

“It sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theories – until one realizes that his predictions of demoralization,’ “destabilization,’ and crisis are all unfolding before our eyes

Written in 1958, some of the “current strategy goals which the Communists and their fellow travelers are seeking to achieve” seem dated and read like a history book from the past. But then one comes to item number 17:

Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propagandaSoften the curriculumGet control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.” (Emphasis added.)

That part in bold especially caught my attention. Haven’t Americans been suspicious for years that public school curriculum has been dumbed down?
