Lavrentiy Pavlovic Beria (March 29, 1899 – December 23 1953) was a Soviet politician, and chief of the Soviet security and secret police apparatus under Stalin. By the end of the Great Purge he had become deputy head and subsequently head of the NKVD and carried out a purge of the NKVD itself. Beria was most influential during and after World War II, and immediately after Stalin’s death in 1953, when as First Deputy Prime Minister he carried out a brief campaign of liberalization. He was briefly a part of the ruling “troika” with Georgy Malenkov and Vyacheslav Molotov. However, in that same year he was arrested and executed by his political rivals. He claimed to have poisoned Stalin, according to Molotov’s memoirs. [Source: wikipedia]
Here is an address that was made by Beria to the American students at the Lenin University prior to 1936.
American student at the Lenin University, I welcome your attendance at these classes of Psychopolitics.
Psychopolitics is an important if less know division of Geo-politics. It is less know because it must necessarily deal with highly educated personnel, the very top strata of “mental healing.”
By psychopolitics our chief goals are effectively carried forward. To produce a maximum of chaos in the culture of the enemy is our first important step. Our fruits are grown in chaos, distrust, economic depression and scientific turmoil. At least a weary populace can seek peace only in our offered Communist State, at last only Communism can resolve the problems of the masses.
A psychopolitician must work hard to produce a maximum chaos in the fields of “mental healing.” He must recruit and use all the agencies and facili- ties of “mental healing” until at last the entire field of mental science is entirely dominated by Communist principles and desires.
To achieve these goals the psychopolitician must crush every “home-grown” variety of mental healing in America. Actually teachings of James, Eddy and Pentecostal Bible faith healer amongst your misguided people must be swept aside. They must be discredited, defamed, arrested, stamped upon even by their own government until there is no credit in them and only Communist- oriented “healing” remains. You must work until every teacher of psychology unknowingly or knowingly teaches only Communist doctrine under the guise of “psychology.” You must labor until every doctor and psychiatrists is either a psycho-politician or an unwitting assistant to our aims.
You must labor until we have dominion over the minds and bodies of every important person in your nation. You must achieve such disrepute for the state of insanity and such authority over its pronouncement that not one statesman so labeled could again be given credence by his people. You must work until suicide arising from mental imbalance is common and calls for no general investigation or remark.
With the institutions for the insane you have in your country prisons which can hold a million persons and can hold them without civil rights or any hope of freedom. And upon these people can be practiced shock and surgery so that never again will they draw a sane breath. You must make these treatments common and accepted. And you must sweep aside any treatment or any group of persons seeking to treat by effective means.
You must dominate as respected men the fields of psychiatry and psychology. You must dominate the hospitals and universities. You must carry forward the myth that only a European doctor is competent in the field of insanity and thus excuse amongst you the high incidence of foreign birth and training. If and when we seize Vienna you shall have then a common ground of meeting and can come and take your instructions as worshipers of Freud along with other psychiatrists.
Psychoplitics is a solemn charge. With it you can erase our enemies insects. You can cripple the efficiency of leaders by striking insanity into their families through the use of drugs. You can wipe them away with testimony as to their insanity. By our technologies you can even bring about insanity itself when they seem to resistive.
You can change their loyalties by psychopolitics. Given a short time with a psychopolitician you can alter forever the loyalty of a soldier in our hands or a statesman or a leader in his own country, or you can destroy his mind.
However you labor under certain dangers. It may happen that remedies for our “treatments” may be discovered. It may occur that a public hue and cry may arise against “mental healing.” It may thus occur that all mental healing might be placed in the hands of ministers and be taken out of the hands of our psychologists and psychiatrists. But the Capitalistic thirst for control, Capitalistic inhumanity and a general public terror of insani- ty can be brought to guard against these things. But should they occur, should independent researcher actually discover means to undo psychopolitical procedures, you must not rest, you must not eat or sleep, you must not stint one tiniest bit of available money to campaign against it, discredit it, strike it down and render it void. For by an effective means all our actions and researches could be undone.
In a Capitalistic state you are aided on all sides by the corruption of the philosophy of man and the times. You will discover that everything will aid you in your campaigns to seize, control and use all “mental healing” to spread our doctrine and rid us of our enemies within their own borders.
Use the courts, use the judges, use the Constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends. Do not sting in your labor in this direction. And when you have succeeded you will discover that you can now effect your own legislation at will and you can, by careful organization of healing societies, by constant campaign about the terrors of society, by pretense as to your effectiveness make your Capitalist himself, by his own appropriations, finance a large portion of the quiet Communist conquest of the nation.
By psychopolitics create chaos. Leave a nation leaderless. Kill your enemies. And bring to Earth, through Communism, the greatest peace Man has ever known.
So, then the question I have, is are the communists doing what they planned on doing? “Our fruits are grown in chaos, distrust, economic depression and scientific turmoil. At least a weary populace can seek peace only in our offered Communist State, at last only Communism can resolve the problems of the masses.” Is our country now experiencing chaos, distrust, economic depression, and scientific turmoil? We are currently divided as a country (red, blue, democrat, republican) and in chaos? Are we not in a state of distrust where we don’t trust our politicians, or our leaders? Are we not currently feeling the effect of economic woes? Are we not in scientific turmoil (look at the global climate change debate)?
I think that the communists are doing what they planned on doing. They are starting to make our country turn to-wards communism as a relief for what they see as bothering us. The Health Care bill is a perfect example of this, the general population now sees a socialistic, or communistic policy as the ONLY solution for a problem. We are turning to-wards communism just like Beria started.
Ezra Taft Benson was told by Khrushchev in 1959, “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
Have we allowed communism to enter our society over the past years? Is it to late? I would say No, it is not to late. We need to create heroes for the younger generations and stand as people of character and of valor. In every centry, the Lord has raised up a generation of Men of Valor to counter the evil growing in the world. We just need to help the Lord and become the Men of Valor he needs us to be, and to raise our children so they can also be full of character and valor to carry on the fight.
“Leave a nation leaderless. Kill your enemies. And bring to Earth, through Communism, the greatest peace Man has ever known.” I find that someone who feels that communism is so great, and will bring peace to Man will refer to his enemies as insects and discuss how to ruin their minds, and bring them to insanity disturbing.
