The First Battlefield
As Karl Marx declared: “The first battlefield is the rewriting of history.”
Hypnotised by Deception
“Modern society is hypnotised by socialism. It is prevented by socialism from seeing the mortal danger it is in. One of the greatest dangers of all is that you have lost all sense of danger. You cannot even see where it is coming from as it moves swiftly towards you. Socialism of any type leads to a total destruction of the human spirit… to destroy a people, you must first sever their roots.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Marxists aim to demoralise their targeted victims through psychological warfare (psyops). Using guilt manipulation, vilifying the victims and victimising the villains, their politics of guilt and pity seek to undermine Christianity and nationalism.
Unable to Even Distinguish Good from Evil
“The generation now coming out of Western schools is unable to distinguish good from bad. Even those words are unacceptable. This results in impaired thinking ability.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Playing the Victim Card While Demonising Opponents
Marxists employ double standards to enable them to always play the victim while demonising the opponents of Marxism. Along with demonising opponents, Marxists seek to promote hero worship of their idols of the New World Order.
Ripping Up the Foundations of Justice
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish, nor reproach, evil-doers… we are ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations. In our country the lie is not just a moral category, but a pillar of the state. The timid civilised world has found nothing with which to oppose the sudden revival of bare-faced barbarity, other than concessions and smiles.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Through politically correct censorship and intimidation, cyber bullying and cry-bullying, they seek to mobilise hysterical, spiteful, vindictive opposition to silence all dissent. Anyone daring to express a different opinion will find themselves a target of malicious slurs and smear tactics.
“The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords.” Psalm 55:21
Poisoning the Well and Weaponising Words
They seek to weaponise words and poison the well, calling free speech: “Hate speech!” Marxists seek to silence opposition by accusing anyone who dares to introduce facts and reason into the discussion: Racist! Anti-Semite! Nazi! Islamaphobe! Homophobic bigot! and other toxic labels designed to intimidate opponents into silence and retreat.
A Loss of Civic Courage
“A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today. The West has lost its civic courage… Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable amongst the ruling and intellectual elite, causing an impression of a loss of courage by the entire society.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The Gramsci Strategy
The Frankfurt School of Cultural Marxism utilised the Gramsci Strategy, otherwise known as the Termite Strategy of eating the heart out of every pillar of Western civilisation until the entire edifice rots and collapses. Their goal is the secularisation of society - to side-line Christianity and deal with all issues without reference to the Bible.
“… ‘Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord?’ Therefore the wrath of the Lord is upon you.” 2 Chronicles 19:2

5.Second Phase of the Revolution
Subversion and Slander
Everything is designed to undermine the strength of the targeted enemy through subversion and slander. Straw man arguments are frequently used to weaken the resistance of targeted individuals, or groups.
Smokescreens and Distractions
Distraction is essential to provide a smoke screen behind which Marxist subversives can destroy everything that could be a strength in the congregation, community or country targeted. The issue focused on is seldom the real concern. Their motivation is normally the furthering of the revolution by discrediting all resistance.
As Socrates famously declared: “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” Those who resort to ad hominem arguments reveal that they are unable to deal with the issue at hand without resorting to name-calling and character assassination against their opponent.
Resist the Lie
“The simple truth of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world. You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your Credo be this: let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“Confuse, Divide and Conquer”
If a people can be confused then they can be divided, which makes it easier to defeat them. Hence Marxists aim at: Disinformation, Division and Defeat for the country targeted.
“While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption…” 2 Peter 2:19
“Corrupt and Conquer”
Degenerate entertainment, defiled art and decadent culture are part of the strategy of cultural Marxists to rot the soul of a nation.
Treason from Within
As Marcus Cicero warned: “A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly, but the traitor moves amongst those within the gates freely, his sly whispers, rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men, he rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night, to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic, so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.”
Vulgar Fads Rot the Soul of a Nation
“European democracy was originally endued with a sense of Christian responsibility and self-discipline, but these spiritual principles have been gradually losing their force. Spiritual independence is being pressured on all sides by the dictatorship of self-satisfied vulgarity, of the latest fads and of group interests.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The Soul of a Nation
“The strength or weakness of a society depends more on the level of its spiritual life than on its level of industrialisation. Neither a market economy nor even general abundance constitutes the crowning achievement of human life. If a nation’s spiritual energies have been exhausted, it will not be saved from collapse by the most perfect government structure or by any industrial development. A tree with a rotten core cannot stand.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“Who will rise up for Me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for Me against the workers of iniquity?” Psalm 94:16
