ABSTRACT
The article focuses on journalist James Burnham's views on the erection of the Berlin Wall in Germany. Burnham criticized the West for its failure to intervene and passively accept the construction of the boundary barricade and controls which he considered to be the first and crucial move toward Communism and human exploitation. He went further by stating that the Wall's erection passed with hardly even a whimper from the national press. He condemned the Wall and believed it to be an awful landmark of the international community's failed policies.
