Yuri Alexandrovic Bezmenov was born at the peak of Joseph Stalin’s merciless regime on a frigid night in 1939. From a young age, his high-ranking Army officer father exposed him to communistic philosophies. After earning a degree from an elite high school, he enrolled at the University of Moscow where he studied history and language. Part of his education involved compulsory military training. During this formative period, the young man was taught strategic war games and interrogation tactics. Upon graduating he began working as an informant for the notorious KGB. Each day he grew increasingly disgusted with the brutal Soviet system. Desperate to escape, the weary columnist risked his life and fled to India in 1970 disguised as an enlightenment-seeking hippie.
By the 1980s the tenacious defector reached America. Once there, he immediately recognized striking similarities between the United States and Russia. Disturbingly, the rampant perceptual programming appeared to be straight from a USSR playbook. Studies conducted by Soviet psychologists had proven the population’s cognitive malleability. They discovered intense bombardments of fear will permanently brainwash citizens. Once this initial stage is completed, no amount of information will undo the previous ideological subversion. Hoping to prevent certain corruption from seeping into the western culture, he decided to issue a public warning before it was too late. Bezmenov dedicated his life to exposing insider intel about mind control techniques. Here are the indoctrination methods he revealed in 1984:
Stage One: Demoralization
It usually takes 15-20 years to demoralize a nation— this is the minimum amount of time it takes to indoctrinate a generation of students to enemy propaganda. Marxist-Leninist views are driven into the developing brains of impressionable pupils. Counterbalances or alternative points of view are intentionally eradicated. Core family values and patriotism become vilified. Simultaneously those in influential positions are deliberately installed. Regime-supporting politicians, CEOS, media platforms, publishers, journalists, professors, actors, judges, and other key players strategically advance. Anyone opposed to the forced doctrines is eliminated. By the end of Stage One, exposure to facts and logic is futile. Subjects are unable to think critically for themselves.
