Intro by Steve Cook
The following comprises Chapter 8 of the subversives’ manual” entitled, “Brainwashing: A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics”
This work summarises the strategies and tricks used to subvert and cave in Man’s communities, the goal being his subjugation by a small “elite” of degenerate parasites who themselves contribute nothing of value.
The original degenerate parasites to adopt these psychiatry-spawned tactics for the nullification of humanity were the Communists of yesteryear.
Whilst Communism as such may have failed due to lack of public support, the crude mass-brainwashing technology they were using to dismay, dismantle and crush free societies continued, like a weapon passed from one psychopath into the hands of his equally homicidal cousins, to be used by contemporary enemies of human liberty, community and wellbeing.
We decided to feature chapter 8 of the book because in it one can recognise and understand the insidious strategies used right now to shape today’s events. And as one does so, what is happening in the world becomes less a source of bewilderment and dismay, more clearly understood and, most importantly, more easy to deal with.

Degradation, Shock, and Endurance
Degradation and conquest are companions. In order to be conquered, a nation must be degraded, either by acts of war, by being overrun, by being forced into humiliating treaties of peace, or by the treatment of her populace under the armies of the conqueror. However, degradation can be accomplished much more insidiously and much more effectively by consistent and continual defamation.
Defamation is the best and foremost weapon of Psychopolitics on the broad field. Continual and constant degradation of national leaders, national institutions, national practices, and national heroes must be systematically carried out, but this is the chief function of Communist Party Members, in general, not the psychopolitician.
The psychopolitician’s realm of defamation and degradation is Man himself. By attacking the character and morals of Man himself, and by bringing about, through contamination of youth, a general degraded feeling, command of the populace is facilitated to a marked degree. [emphasis added]
There is a curve of degradation that leads downward to a point where the endurance of an individual is almost at an end, and any sudden action toward him will place him in a state of shock. Similarly, a soldier held prisoner can be abused, denied, defamed, and degraded until the slightest motion on the part of his captors will cause him to flinch. Similarly, the slightest word on the part of his captors will cause him to obey, or vary his loyalties and beliefs. Given sufficient degradation, a prisoner can be caused to murder his fellow countrymen in the same stockade. Experiments on German prisoners have lately demonstrated that after seventy days of filthy food, little sleep, and nearly untenable quarters, the least motion toward the prisoner will bring about a state of shock beyond his endurance threshold and will cause him to receive hypnotically anything said to him. Thus, it is possible, in an entire stockade of prisoners numbering into the thousands, to bring about a state of complete servile obedience, and without having to personally address each one, to pervert their loyalties and implant in them adequate commands to ensure their future conduct, even after their release to their own people.
By lowering the endurance of a person, a group, or a nation, and by constant degradation and defamation, a state of shock can be induced that will cause an adequate response to any command. The first thing to be degraded in any nation is the state of Man himself. Nations that have high ethical tone are difficult to conquer. [emphasis added] Their loyalties are hard to shake, their allegiance to their leaders is fanatical, and what they usually call their spiritual integrity cannot be violated by duress. It is not efficient to attack a nation in such a frame of mind. It is the basic purpose of Psychopolitics to reduce that state of mind to a point where it can be ordered and enslaved. Thus, the first target is Man himself. He must be degraded from a spiritual being to an animalistic reaction pattern. He must think of himself as an animal, capable only of animalistic reactions. He must no longer think of himself, or of his fellows, as capable of “spiritual endurance,” or nobility.
The best approach toward degradation in its first stages is the propaganda of ‘scientific approach” to Man. Man must be consistently demonstrated to be a mechanism without individuality, and the idea must be programmed into a populace under attack that Man’s individualistic reactions are the products of mental derangement. The populace must be made to believe that every individual within it who rebels in any way, shape, or form against efforts and activities to enslave the whole, must be considered to be a deranged person whose eccentricities are neurotic or insane, and who must be referred at once to the treatment of a psychopolitician (licensed as a mental healer).
An optimum maneuver in such a program of degradation is to address itself to the military forces of the nation, and disabuse them rapidly from any belief other than that the disobedient one must be subjected to “mental treatment.” The enslavement of a population can Fail only if thee rebellious individuals are left to exert their individual influence upon their fellow citizens, sparking them into rebellion, calling into account their past nobility and ideals of freedom. Unless these restless individuals are stamped out and given into the hands of psychopolitical operatives early in the game, there will be nothing but trouble as the conquest continues.
The officials of the government, students, readers, partakers and providers of entertainment, must all be indoctrinated, by whatever means, into the complete belief that the restless, the ambitious, the natural leaders, are suffering from environmental maladjustments, which can be healed only by recourse to psychopolitical operatives in the guise of mental healers.
By thus degrading the general belief in the status of Man it is relatively simple, with cooperation from the economic salient’ being driven into the country, to drive citizens apart, one from another, to bring into question the wisdom of their own government, and to cause them to beg actively for a takeover.
The educational programs of Psychopolitics must, at every hand, seek out the levels of youth who will become the leaders in the country’s future, and educate them into a belief in the animalistic nature of Man. This must be made fashionable. They must be taught to frown upon ideas, upon individual endeavor. They must be taught, above all things, that the salvation of Man is to be found only through his perfect adjustment to this environment.
This educational program in the field of Psychopolitics can best be followed by bringing about a compulsory training in some subject such as psychology or other mental practice, and seeing to it that each broad program of psychopolitical training is supervised by a psychiatrist who is a trained psychopolitical operative.
As it seems that the church is the most ennobling influence in foreign nations, each and every branch and activity of each and every church, must, one way or another, be discredited. Religion must be made unfashionable by our demonstrating broadly, through psychopolitical indoctrination, that the soul is nonexistent, and that Man is an animal. The lying mechanisms of Christianity lead men to foolishly brave deeds. By teaching them that there is a life hereafter, the church minimizes the liability of courageous acts during this lifetime. And the liability of any act must be markedly increased if a populace is to be obedient. Thus, there must be no standing belief in the church, and the power of the church must be denied at every opportunity.
The psychopolitical operative, in his program of degradation, should at all times bring into question any family that is deeply religious, and, should any neurosis or insanity be occasioned in that family, he should blame and hold responsible their religious connections for the neurotic or psychotic condition. Religion must be made synonymous with neurosis and psychosis. People who are deeply religious would be less and less held likely to be responsible for their own sanity, and should more and more be relegated to the ministrations of psychopolitical operatives.
By perverting the institutions of a nation and bringing about a general degradation, by interfering with the economics of a nation to the degree that privation and depression become commonplace, only minor shocks will be necessary to produce, on the populace as a whole, an obedient reaction or an hysteria. [emphasis added]
Thus, the mere threat of war, the mere threat of bombings, could cause the population to sue instantly for peace. It is a long and arduous road for the psychopolitical operative to achieve this state of mind on the part of a whole nation, but no more than twenty or thirty years should be necessary to run the entire program. Having to hand, as we do, weapons with which to accomplish the goal.
