Soviet Subversion of the Free World Press 1/9


my father was he is on the left here my father was officer of the General Staff of the Soviet Army he was inspector of land forces Soviet troops stationed in countries like Mongolia Cuba East European countries this is the picture taken at the entrance of my Institute of Oriental languages it’s a part of Moscow State University as every Soviet student I was quote-unquote volunteering for harvesting grain in Kazakhstan by the end of my training in school I was recruited by the KGB this picture was taken on that day and you can see again how happy it feels to be recruited by the KGB pay special attention to number of bottles on the table one of my functions was to keep foreign guests permanently intoxicated the moment they land at Moscow Airport in 1967 the KGB attached me to this magazine Look magazine a group of 12 people arrived to USSR from the United States to cover the 50th anniversary of October socialist revolution in my country from the first page to the last page it was a package of lies [Music] [Music] our conversation is with mr. Yuri Alexandrovich Desmond auth mister bez bein auth was born in 1939 in a suburb of Moscow he was the son of a high-ranking Soviet Army officer he was educated in the elite schools inside the Soviet Union and became an expert in Indian culture and Indian languages he had an outstanding career with Novus T which was the friend still is I should say the press arm or the press agency of the Soviet Union it turns out that this is also a front for the KGB one of his interesting assignments was to brainwash foreign diplomats when they visited Moscow and he’ll tell us a little bit about how they did this and how they planted information which eventually wound up in the press of the free world he escaped to the west in 1970 after becoming totally disgusted with the Soviet system and he did this at great risk to his life he certainly is one of the world’s outstanding experts on the subject of Soviet propaganda and disinformation and active measures mr. Bassman off I’d like to begin by having you tell us a little bit about some of your childhood memories well the most vivid memory of my childhood was Second World War or to be more precise the end of the Second World War when all of a sudden United States from a friendly nation which helped us to defeat Nazism turned overnight into a deadly enemy and it was very shocking because all newspapers were trying to present an image of belligerent aggressive American imperialism most of the things that we were taught is that the United States is aggressive power which is just about to invade our beautiful free socialist country that American CIA is dropping Colorado beetles on our beautiful potato fields to eliminate our crops and each schoolboy had a picture of Colorado bog on the on the back page of his notebook and we were instructed to go into collective fields to search for those little colorado bugs of course we couldn’t find any neither we could find many potatoes and that was explained again by the encroachments of the decadent imperialist power the anti-american paranoia hysteria in the Soviet propaganda was to such an agreement achill people or less stubborn would really believe that United States is just about to invade our beautiful motherland and some secretly hope that it will come true that’s interesting yes well getting back to life inside the Soviet Union or inside communist countries in general in this country at the university level primarily we read and hear that the Soviet system is different from ours but not that different and that there is a convergence developing between all of the systems of the world and that really it doesn’t make an awful lot of difference what system you live under because you have corruption and dishonesty and tyranny and all that sort of thing from your personal experience what is the difference between life under communism and life in the United States well life is obviously very much different for simple reason that the Soviet Union is a state capitalist economically it’s a state capitalism where an individual has absolutely no rights no value his life is nothing it’s just like an insect he is disposable whereby in the United States even though even the worst criminal is treated as a human being he has a fair trial and some of them capitalize on their crimes they publish their memoirs in their prisons and get handsomely paid by your crazy publishers the differences of course in the daily life are very various depending on who or whom we are talking about in my own private life I never suffered from communism simply because I was brought up in the family of high-ranking military officer most of the doors were open for me most of my expenses were paid by the government and I never had any troubles and with the authorities or with the police so in other words I would say I enjoyed or I had good reasons to enjoy all the advantages of so-called socialist system my main motivations to defect was had nothing to do with affluence it was mainly moral indignation moral protest rebellion against the inhuman methods of the Soviet system well specifically what did you objective I objected first of all against oppression of my own dissidents and intellectuals and that was the most disgusting thing that that I witnessed as a as a young man young student who was brought up at very troublesome period in our history from Stalin to Khrushchev from total tyranny and oppression to some kind of liberalisation second when I started working for the Soviet embassy in India I to my horror I discovered that we are millions times more oppressive than any colonial or imperialist power in the history of mankind that my country brings to India not freedom progress and friendship between the nations but racism exploitation and slavery and Attica and of course economical inefficiency to this country since I fell in love with India I developed something which by KGB standards is extremely dangerous thing it’s called split loyalty when an agent likes a country of assignment more than his own country I literally fell in love with this beautiful country a country of great contrasts but also great humility great tolerance and if philosophical and intellectual freedoms my ancestors used to live in caves and eat raw meat when India was highly civilized nation 6,000 years ago so obviously the choice was not to the advantage of my own nation I decided to defect and to entirely dissociate myself from that brutal regime mr. bear’s me enough we’ve read a lot about the concentration camps and the slave labor camps under the Stalin regime now the general impression in America is that those things are part of the past are they still going on today or what is there that is yes there is no qualitative change in this Soviet concentration camp system there are changes in in numbers of prisoners again this is unreliable service statistics we don’t know how many political prisoners are there in the soviet concentration camps but we sure know from from various sources that at each particular time there are close to 25 to 30 million of soviet citizens who are virtually kept as slaves in forced labor camp system the size of the population of a country like Canada is serving terms as prisoners incredible so I would say that those intellectuals who try to convince American public that concentration camp system is a thing of a past are either conscientiously misleading public opinion or they are not in very intellectual people they they are selectively blind they don’t they lack intellectual honesty when they say that

  1. life is treated as worthless in communism, and even criminals in USA are treated better? The unborn are treated as medical waste, garbage babies, in USA.

  2. But weren't communists/liberals the ones that introduced abortion in the US? Alas, in the communist world there's more "equality": babies and adults are equally disposable.

  3. Of course. Saboteurs and enemies of the people! Gulag, the glorious and fair redemption system, is too good for them!

  4. At least he admits that the socialist country he admired was taken over by FASCISTS. He became sick and disillusioned and defected when he realized that in many countries that turned toward Soviet influence and took power…that the idealists and true believers were soon eliminated. That is what turned him…that he was working for murderers. It wasn't ideological at all.

    Reply

  5. He then admits that, his instructions were to avoid the "liberals", those who really care about civil liberties, because if they found out the truth about the Soviets, they would become their worst enemy. "Infiltrate" the conservatives and the greedy"…"those that can lie to you with a smile".

  6. He, of course, is oblivious to the fact of what a "useful idiot" he had become for the wealthy elite and American military-industrial regime that constantly attacks American values to entrench their brand of fascism through the Republican Party.

  8. Unfortunately, the term "liberal" no longer means civil libertarian in the US political system. It is code-word for the US socialist agenda, the very thing Yuri was speaking out against.

  9. The Most moral? Really? Is that why every commercial I see is an obsession with sex? Shampoo commercial(naked woman covered in soap), Coca Cola comercial(woman in her bikini and guys are jumping int he water), the list goes on and on, this is American great morality? What about all the rapes that happen in college to women, 90% of them supposedly happen from people they know, classmate, a friend, ex-boyfriend, or acquaintance. These are your ethics? I've seen poor people here in Atlanta.

  10. The man was near a restaurant, and people with their fancy clothes and enough money to go dine there didn't bother to give him a damn thing. This is your compassion? I don't know maybe you live in some other country called America. But the country America I live in isn't the most moral, ethical, or compassionate country.

  11. America used to be like that. You still find some of the good old charitable people in the small towns, but people in big cities are mostly demoralized and insensitive, already numbed by the culture of consumerism.

  15. @ElizarTringov You are stressing a burden on your America that you are living in to be expected to give you a handout. Because these people have more than you does not mean they stole it from somebody. They worked hard. They went to school and educated themselves. Now, we do have a MORAL responsibility to help our neighbor, but not so that the government taxes 40% of my income and dictates, umm, allocates (distributes) it to the poor for food, housing, welfare, medicaid, etc.

    Reply

  16. @ElizarTringov Do you all not trust me to help my brother and sisters that are in need? Do you trust your government more to spend my money? Yes, some people are pigs and selfish, but we as a collective community cannot express moral obligation if we are giving the government authority to do and speak for the people. Therefore, tax payers have NO say left in this country.

  17. He defected to the USA, and lived by their good grace.

    He is of course absolutely right about the sheer brutality of the former USSR, which may have eventually killed directly and indirectly (through proactive global socialism hostility towards other nations) about 60 million Soviets…….a huge figure, according to Alexander Solzynetzin.

    Reply

  18. Where he is wrong is in characterising ALL Soviet activity in the worst light…..The Soviet Union played a critical role in building up India's strategic Industry, without which even into the present with Russia, India's development would be years behind. The technical help that the Soviet Union provided was of vital importance to India's.

  19. @theinkbrain No need to. Watch all his videos and you'll figure out the current situation as a later development of the situation back then. That means conservative forces failed to stop the course of revolution in the USA.

  21. @theinkbrain Also makes me wonder. I heard from Ed Griffin he died around 97. No more information than that.

  22. @rvz77 America is not giving me a handout. I never said anybody who had more than me stole from somebody. I never said they didn't work hard. I never said they didn't go to school or educated themselves. I never said the welfare system was something I agree with. I was saying America is not this moral country people make it out to be. People might like to think they are moral but if they truly look at their actions, words and thoughts they will soon realize they are immoral.

    Reply

  23. @rvz77I am not trying to be pessimistic I am just telling you what I have seen. I don't agree with the welfare system either, nor do I agree with the fact that tax payers don't have a say in where their taxes go but that is the way things are right now. Dishonesty prevails! I am not saying there are no moral or compassionate people in America. I am saying they are highly outnumbered by immoral and uncaring people. Sorry I took so long to respond.

  24. @barron8006 so because the camps have been renamed means there were none? And what of the other socialist nations that have camps ? Have you even been there? Did you go as a brain washed diplomat? Under Stalin's programs over 70 million were killed by his programs. I am sure Stalin did not personally kill more than a handful of people.. Nevertheless he signed the orders for extermination.

  25. @barron8006 Unfortunately I can't agree with you since I actually read books about Russia. "hundreds of thousands of Southerners were railroaded into chain gangs for years." Really now?

  26. @Ryanshinobi and THIS is why we CANNOT forget God in this nation. That is one of the main ideas of communism. Get rid of God in a nation and everything will crumble. Hence the reason Islamic nations are mostly poor…. most of them are Muslims… which is basically a cult. "allah" is a moon god… not the God of the Bible.

  27. i have been watching gov jesse ventura's exposè on the doings of our government… scary beyond belief. we have to be watchful of other countries such as russia and china, and of course the rest of america's enemies, but we cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the fact that this country is run by the fed the treasury and wall street, all of whom are under the control of the same plutocrats who have bought and paid for all our so- called representatives.

  28. @Ryanshinobi Please. It's just starting to come to fruition with Obama. That whole "educate one generation" thing? That's been going on since at least around the turn of the 19th or 20th century. You should read John Taylor Gatto's book.

    The BIGGEST enemy to the USA is their own government… just like the BIGGEST enemy to Russia was THEIR own government after the revolution of 1917! What happened in Russia since then is happening in USA right now. Only this time it seems to be an accelerated process!

  30. @Spetsop I hope with all my heart that America will continue to be The Land of the Free. We will face big challenges when the oil is used up and global economies collapse, unless a global viral epidemic hits us first. Americans need to protect their second amendment rights because without them none of our other rights will be guaranteed.

    Ya, the fundamental problems of the corrupt society. And a few good ones that do get through are eliminated pretty much right away.
    I agree that we have to try a totally new system, but that cannot be done while 2 things are still in place: 1) the current government and 2) like you said, the corrupt nature of society (going to have to change this first before we can address the other problem… doubt the change will happen soon though, people are always afraid of change).

  32. You know about Germany using fifths columns to infiltrate and systematic murder to suppres any opposition against Germany in other countries. The aim still is German world domination. My homepages gives a few informations about the techniques being used today by German officials and snitchers. They are no fighting open battles because Germany failed twice. Today its more like poisoning your coffee if you dont collaborate with them.

  33. When you watch this video, keep in mind that you are listening to someone who openly admits is highly trained at lying to people, distorting the truth, exaggeration of certain aspects, in short, propaganda!. Keep in mind that he has a political agenda and view, just like everyone else. Remember that he defected from the soviet union and only sees everything that was wrong with it (and there was A LOT wrong with it). Just keep that in mind.

  34. @christo930 When I “watch this video” I kept in “mind” today the US follows the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto closer than its Constitution. Bezmenov, mission accomplished. But the USSR is not around anymore, the UN is there, as in New World Order. How does it feel comrade?

    Reply

  35. @christo930 No my Friend, I’m not some “conspiracy theorist.” I’m just an observer trying to wake folks up about our Founding. It’s sad many in government have little understanding about our Founding. We should all, at least, review our unalienable Rights and understand they are part of the Laws of Nature, and they also apply to all life and social systems. See my channel video.

  38. @christo930 OK, since you “know Bush Sr” so well. What did he mean when he said NWO? Please backup your reply with references! On the other hand, what proof do you have that I’m an: “average person?” Please, don’t take this as an offence. Many make assumptions about others with lack of backing. This is a constructive exercise. Show me the Bush references on NWO; I’ll let you slide about me being “average.”

    Reply

  39. @Mike10four What would you accept as references and what do you even mean by that? Am I supposed to find a peer reviewed study that assesses the language of a president in a remark? All I can really do is provide the quote in context, if that is what you want, that is what I can provide.

    Reply

  40. @christo930 Many presidents used the term “New World Order” starting with Woodrow Wilson. As usual, what comes out of Washington is confusion. As for Bush Sr see: the Malta Conference of 12/3/1989. Even Bush Jr had his spin see: the 2001 paper in the Presidential Studies Quarterly. Like I said, I only quoted the term NWO that our Presidents used. If you want confusion, go through the historical context on how each President used the term.

    Reply

  41. @Mike10four Now that it is established that they all used it in different era's and meant different things…. What do YOU think of when you hear NWO? Or what do YOU mean when you say NWO?

    Reply

  42. @christo930 Pick your President, it could mean anything. When I here “New World Order” and since we are part of the world, it sounds unconstitutional to me. But after Woodrow Wilson we are under the “living constitution.” So NWO is a function of the current administration.

  46. This link was referred by Andreas Behring Breivik (the man behind the massacre on Utøya, Norway) in his work "A European Declaration of Independence" to give an example of how "nations are demoralised for ideological subversion". This shows how a sick man can take a piece of information and just strengthen his own sick believes, without being objective at all.

  52. mphello, the Christian Right hate other religions and people, American Nazis white supremest control the American Right Wing. "Terrorism" is a propagandist symantec tool. To disagree with your government and take a stand against it – under the American Constitution is your right! It is standard procedure for American Media to report acts against tyranny in foreign countries as acts of "Terrorism", not acts of "Rebellion". Acts of rebellions resulting from foreign military acts of colonialism.

  53. @Ax4400

    Christians don't hate other religions and people. If that were the case, none of the other countries and people would even be allowed in North America to begin with, as it was Christians who founded the US and Canada. Your ideals fit in perfectly with the Occupy Wall Street nonsense.

  56. All of a sudden the 1960's make sense. US culture makes sense. Feminism and university are subverted and perpetuating culturally subversive unions and programs. LGBT programs are subversive and an attack on the traditional family values.
