We'll Tell You Secret

February 1975
National Review;2/14/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p151
This article presents information on the West's mass media coverage in 1975 of political developments in the Soviet Union and China. According to the media, no one outside the inner circles of the Soviet and Chinese Communist Parties, and quite possibly no one there, knows with any specificity what actually is going on, if anything. It is reported that any basic political issues of major significance to non-Communist nations are at stake in this struggle. It may quite possibly be, as many such struggles have been throughout history, simply a personal battle, with political issues dragged in only as cloaks and supplements to the naked will to power and prestige.
