ABSTRACT
The article stresses that West is not doing well in the Cold War because fundamentally it is not united. It has a common purpose, but no common plan. News of failures on the part of Communist governments does not reach their peoples in the form and with the consequences in Western countries. The aim of the international Communist movement is to overthrow every existing authority, religion or economic system which stands in the way of bringing the world under Communist power and control. In pursuit of this objective all tactics are legitimate and all double talk is justified. As a result of these tactics, the Soviet leaders hope to persuade some easily deluded persons to forget inconvenient facts. Since 1940 the Western European powers have voluntarily agreed to the independence of 18 different countries with a population of more than 600,000,000 people. During the same period the Communist countries have brought under their rule 12 previously free countries with a population of more than 120,000,000.
