The Marxist Strategy for Taking Over America, Part 11-Heritage Brief 66

Darwin and Freud’s theories were embraced by Marx to confirm his premise that the state needed to control humanity.

Posted on

 We continue covering the 45 Goals Marxists declared for bringing America under their bondage with Goal #38:

MARXIST GOAL #38: Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat. 

We covered before how Darwin and Freud’s theories were embraced by Marx to confirm his premise that the state needed to control humanity. Psychiatry and psychoanalysis became primary weapons of Marxists for doing this. Psychiatry has been a primary means for Marxists to achieve their goals such as breaking up the family structure or anything else that could rival the state as the source of authority and allegiance of the people.

This is not to imply that all psychology, psychiatry, or psychoanalysis is Marxist, but these did become primary tools for Marxists to subjugate the people in their conquered domains. How they used these will be covered in the following goals.


MARXIST GOAL #39: Dominate the psychiatric profession and mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

They may do it gradually, but Marxists will eventually have any beliefs that in any way challenge Marxist doctrine and the supremacy of the state declared as insanity. They will use this to banish those who hold to such beliefs to asylums or labor camps to be re-indoctrinated or worked to death. Fear of being declared insane was a primary tool of control used in every Marxist state.


MARXIST GOAL #40: Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

Again, the family is seen as the primary rival of the state for supremacy and allegiance. They saw promoting promiscuity and easy divorce as effective weapons for destroying the family, and thereby eliminating this rival to Marxist totalitarian control of society.

As reported in The Naked Truth (page 133) Marxists have been very effective in accomplishing this goal as well. From 1958 to 1990 the divorce rate in America increased over 100%. The reason the rate of divorce has flattened out since then is because of a more troubling reason—fewer people are getting married, choosing rather to cohabitate. In 1958 the cohabitation rate in America was near zero, now more couples are choosing to do this rather than get married, and an increasing percentage of children are born out of wedlock, making the next Marxist goal more easily achievable.


MARXIST GOAL #41: Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks, and mentally retarded children to the suppressive influence of parents.

It is basic Marxist doctrine that children belong to the state, not their parents. Marxists quickly seized upon Freud’s theories attributing almost all mental disorders to the family structure and parents imposing Dark Age beliefs and prejudices on their children. As soon as goal #38 is achieved giving arresting powers to social services, and as Marxist states are quick to establish any deviation from Marxist doctrine a form of insanity, they will use this to arrest parents and seize their children, making them wards of the state.

In Europe and America, all of these goals used to attack and destroy the family have made so much progress that strong families are becoming a rarity. Bills have been proposed in the U.S. Congress that by their subtle wording make devotion to a family, being a political conservative, or being devoutly religious, to be recognized as forms of insanity for use in taking children from such homes, denying Second Amendment rights, and other forms of totalitarian suppression of our freedoms.

Of course, these laws have not been passed yet, but it is a pattern that proposed laws may take time before being passed. These are policies that an effort will be made to get passed over time, and this very often gets done.


MARXIST GOAL #42: Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political, or social problems.  

Does this sound like the rationale being used for recent and present insurrections, violence, and attacks on public property at universities and in our cities? Does this sound like the excuses the Democratic Party has used to refuse to condemn this violence, but instead even justified them? This is another example of how effective the Marxists have been to infiltrate and sow discord into our schools and country.

We also can see the hypocrisy of how any type of protest done by conservatives or those on the right, Democrats are quick to call it “insurrection,” or even “treason.” The media coverage and skewed polls can make it seem that most of America sides with this—actually it does not.

About one-third of Americans are hard-left and will believe anything the leftist media propagates. The other two-thirds of Americans are not as naïve and slow of reasoning that they hope we are. That is why the media has now fallen even below Congress in the trust of the American people—the large majority of Americans no longer believe the media.

Even so, the one-third of Americans who are on the left are now on the hard left and are being increasingly radicalized. We must keep in mind that Lenin and the Bolsheviks numbered far less than 1% of the Russian population when they began the revolution there, and they succeeded. There were two main factors that enabled them to do this with such a tiny percentage of the population:


  1. They made alliances with other liberal or anti-Tsarist groups, who thought that they could control the Marxists and keep them in their place after the revolution was won, but were completely unprepared for the ruthlessness of the Marxists by which they dominated after the success of the revolution.


  1. The Bolsheviks promised amnesty to all soldiers and citizens who would surrender their weapons. When the army and the citizenry had been disarmed, the Bolsheviks then killed millions who could no longer protect themselves. This included leaders and members of other liberal groups that had been allies of the Marxists during the revolution, calling them “useful idiots”, ridding the country of any potential rivals as they quickly and easily established their totalitarian control.


Audacity is characterized by daring, but it is daring that is founded on confidence and a thorough understanding of (the) conflict and its potential consequences. It is carried out with decisiveness. ~R. Redwine
