Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the New York Times bestselling author of The 5000 Year Leap, The Naked Capitalist and the original edition of The Naked Communist.
To date, The Naked Communist has sold almost two million copies and has found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across the United States. In one clarifying and readable volume, the whole story of communism is graphically told and includes the tragic histories of China, Korea, Russia, the UN, Alger Hiss, Whittaker Chambers, Elizabeth Bentley, General MacArthur, and others. National broadcaster Paul Harvey at CBS said, "I have never given any volume such an unqualified endorsement."
The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than one hundred books and treatises on communism, many written by Marxist authors. This text that reviewers have called "the most powerful book on communism since J. Edgar Hoover's Masters of Deceit" sees the communist as he sees himself - stripped of propaganda and pretense. Readers are offered an explanation of the appeal of communism, its history, its basic and unchanging concepts - even its secret timetable of conquest.
Among the many questions it answers are:
* Who gave the United States' nuclear secrets to the Russians?
* How did the FBI fight communism after it was forced underground in 1918?
* Why did the West lose 600 million allies after World War II?
* What really happened in Korea?
* What is communism's great secret weapon?
* Is there an answer to communism?
* What lies ahead?
* What can I do to stop communism?
* How can we stop communism without a major war?
**This edition of The Naked Communist has been updated for 2016. Included is a chapter on the 45 Communist Goals that details how 44 of those 45 goals have been achieved. Also new is a chapter about the making of The Naked Communist that sheds light on how this book has sold almost two million copies.
change in our state of mind. What is wrong with our "state of mind?" First and foremost, we have been thinking the way the Communists want us to think. Our founding fathers would be alarmed to learn how confused many of our people have become over such fundamental problems as coexistence, disarmament, free trade, the United Nations, recognition Red China, and a host of related problems. Instead of maintaining a state of intellectual vigilance, we have taken Communist slogans as the major
the invariably perfidious and malicious, the never frank and open, inciter to the persecution of those whom he suspects, or who had the misfortune of failing to show all the veneration he expects. As soon as he has ordered a persecution there is no limit to the baseness and infamy of the method." The acid of boiling intolerance which Marx frequently poured down on the heads of his followers may be partially explained by his own complete certainty that the theories he had concocted were
"leaps" can be produced with certain inorganic substances simply by quantitative accumulation (as in the paraffin hydrocarbons) it does not explain how the new qualities are produced. Furthermore, when this same principle is used to explain life as spontaneously emerging in albuminous substances, the Communist philosopher is defiantly flying in the face of all scientific experience. The universal demonstration of nature is the fact that only life begets life. It has not been possible to produce

USSR had been feeding like a great parasite on the satellite countries. In contrast to the Iron Curtain countries the Western European nations were enjoying the greatest period of prosperity in forty years. The American people had donated 50 billion dollars to the post-war recovery of these countries and they were rapidly reaching the point where they could begin to stand alone. There was a healthy resurgence faith in free enterprise capitalism as the United States reached the zenith of its
