UPDATE 2320 EDT 19 MARCH 2012: Updated title and video links below.
Finally found the full version of the 1985 CBC interview with Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov on this evening. You’ll recall that we ran an excerpt of this interview here, in which Bezmenov discussed how the KGB planned and executed the transformation of nations it wished to subvert/destroy:
…To change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite of the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country.
It’s a great brainwashing process which goes very slow, and it is divided in four basic stages. The first one being demoralization. It takes from 15-20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years it takes to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy…
Total run time of the interview is 1:21:28, but if you have high-speed connectivity and the time, I am confident you will find Bezmenov’s insights into the Soviet demoralization/propaganda mechanisms to be relevant, especially here in the early days of the USSA.
For those who prefer text, Useless Dissident has transcribed this program in its entirety (and even included screen shots used in the original program), in three parts:
Those who are interested can buy a DVD of the interview, as well.
There are no new games.
There are only new players.
