school. Socially out of it, they fancied themselves "intellectually" into it — the perfect dupes for the pseudo-intellectualism ofthe Marxist con men. They all felt very guilty about the wealth of their families.And every one of them I got to know at all well told me about some instance in which a high school teacher, or somerespected friend of their parents, or a college professor, had helped "open their eyes" to the fact that because they wereboth intellectually superior and wealthy they had a special responsibility to share the wealth and all that. It was a lot ofgarbage, but they are very intent on it.The New Left takes guilt-ridden neurotic kids and makes psychotics out of them. Some have become so frustrated that the countryis not yet engulfed in bloody revolution, or that the government has not yet surrendered to their demands, that they have turned tonihilism and violence. Many of these have been recruited into the Weatherman Faction of S.D.S. After all, two or three years ofradical effort seem like an eternity to an eighteen-year-old. When the classless society did not arrive, many were persuaded that itonly proved they could not work within "the system." Some of these opted for drugs and others turned to bombs.The attrition rate among the Weathermen and their independent imitators is very high, due to drugs, illness, venereal disease, andthe efficiency of the police. But, as the Establishment media continue to glamorize revolution, new recruits continue to drift into theunderground. As long as the
of the Establishment continue the perpetual no-win war in Indochina, the New Left is going tobe able to pour new recruits into the top of the revolutionary funnel — even if it is dead bodies which pour out the bottom. As JerryKirk explains:Young people have no conception of the Conspiracy's strategy of "pressure from above and pressure from below," so welloutlined in Communist Jan Kozak's
And Not A Shot Is Fired
. They have no idea that they are playing into the hands of theEstablishment they claim to hate. They have no idea that the United States is financing and equipping both sides of theVietnam War. The radicals think they are fighting the forces of the super-rich, like Rockefeller and Ford, and don't realizethat it is precisely such forces which are behind their own revolution, financing it, and using it for their own purposes.Jerry says that for all the time he was a member of the Communist Party inside the Revolutionary Youth Movement he never raninto a single activist who knew anything about the Establishment
Council on Foreign Relations. "Nobody in the C.P. evermentioned it either," he notes, "and I did not learn about it until I was out. Imagine an elitist 1,400-member organization, the bignames in finance, government, and academe, with over a hundred of its members holding top appointments in the Administration —virtually running American political affairs. All kinds of things that had confused me before started making sense. Until I began tocatch on to the game I thought that if all the big people I had seen doing the work of the Communists were conscious of what theywere doing, it was a matter of their being Soviet agents. That's all I could figure. I knew there were enormously important andwealthy people in the movement. I knew there were 'respectable' men who were involved. But so far as I could see they had to besomething like K.G.B. agents, or to have been blackmailed, or were on the make for power. I had little idea that the Conspiracy isrooted here, in the collectivist super-rich and their agents at the top, and that Moscow is only a branch office."Jerry says he finds that most young people respond very rapidly when they are shown that the Establishment
at the top areusing the revolutionaries at the bottom in a pincer movement against the American middle class. But some are so psychoticallycommitted to their revolution that they are immune to even the obvious. After an address by Mr. Kirk in Lafayette, Indiana, the
Lafayette Journal & Courier
questioned a number of student revolutionaries who were in attendance at his speech. The reporterquotes one as follows:We are so alienated by your society that even if what [Kirk] said about being dupes and about dying in the streets is true, wedon't care. Because there is nothing worth living for in America today . . . . We wouldn't say there was much of an exchangeof views in there. He did all the preaching and we did all the listening.We don't quarrel with his facts too much . . . . But we think he's wrong in his analysis. The trouble with those people [a largeaudience of prominent Conservatives] is they don't know who to hate.Clearly, such schoolboy Lenins have been thoroughly taken in by the
of the Establishment. Many who have come to hearJerry Kirk's well-reasoned analysis have admitted as much. But they have crossed the line into illegality, violence, and drugs. Formany of them it is already too late.
But Who Pays The Bills?
The myriad activities of the Student Revolutionary Movement require a great deal of money. Demonstrations, conventions, training,literature, travel, mail, telephone, office space — all require funds. Big money. The coordination involved in putting tens ofthousands of students into Washington, or Chicago, or New York, or San Francisco, does not come cheaply. From where does the
